In order to accurately describe and diagnose psychiatric illness, practitioners require in-depth knowledge of the signs and symptoms of behavioral disorders. Descriptive Psychopathology provides a broad review of the psychopathology of psychiatric illness, beyond the limitations of the DSM and ICD criteria. Beginning with a discussion of the background to psychiatric classification, the authors explore the problems and limitations of current diagnostic systems. The following chapters then present the principles of psychiatric examination and diagnosis, described with accompanying patient vignettes and summary tables, and related to different diagnostic concerns. A thought-provoking conclusion proposes a restructuring of psychiatric classification based on the psychopathology literature and its validating data. Written for psychiatry and neurology residents, clinical psychologists, behavioral neurologists, clinical psychology students and psychiatric nurse practitioners, it is invaluable to anyone who accepts the responsibility for the care of patients with behavioral syndromes.
Power Supply Cookbook
Author: Marty Brown
Power Supply Cookbook, Second Edition provides an easy-to-follow, step-by-step design framework for a wide variety of power supplies. With this book, anyone with a basic knowledge of electronics can create a very complicated power supply design in less than one day. With the common industry design approaches presented in each section, this unique book allows the reader to design linear, switching, and quasi-resonant switching power supplies in an organized fashion. Formerly complicated design topics such as magnetics, feedback loop compensation design, and EMI/RFI control are all described in simple language and design steps. This book also details easy-to-modify design examples that provide the reader with a design template useful for creating a variety of power supplies. This newly revised edition is a practical, "start-to-finish" design reference. It is organized to allow both seasoned and inexperienced engineers to quickly find and apply the information they need. Features of the new edition include updated information on the design of the output stages, selecting the controller IC, and other functions associated with power supplies, such as: switching power supply control, synchronization of the power supply to an external source, input low voltage inhibitors, loss of power signals, output voltage shut-down, major current loops, and paralleling filter capacitors. It also offers coverage of waveshaping techniques, major loss reduction techniques, snubbers, and quasi-resonant converters. * Guides engineers through a step-by-step design framework for a wide variety of power supplies, many of which can be designed in less than one day * Provides easy-to-understand information about often complicated topics, making power supply design a much more accessible and enjoyable process

Il volume vuole essere un primo bilancio dell’esperienza del TFA (Tirocinio di Formazione Attiva) ordinario delle classi di ambito letterario che si è svolto presso la Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia della Sapienza di Roma negli anni 2012-2013. Le questioni legate alla formazione docenti e all’insegnamento dell’italiano, delle lingue classiche e della letteratura sono al centro dei contributi introduttivi scritti dalle curatrici, da Roberto Nicolai, Luca Serianni, Stefano Quaglia e Carlo Albarello, docenti dell’università e della scuola attenti da anni alle problematiche della didattica disciplinare. La parte centrale del volume, articolata in sezioni introdotte dai docenti tutor per i diversi indirizzi, raccoglie i percorsi didattici elaborati e sperimentati nelle scuole dai tirocinanti, giovani professori in formazione che hanno affrontato con originalità e spirito innovativo il compito loro affidato, coniugando alte competenze disciplinari e passione, al servizio di un lavoro fondamentale, che ha un’altissima responsabilità sociale nei confronti delle nuove generazioni.

To most people, mathematics means working with numbers. But as Keith Devlin shows in Mathematics: The Science of Patterns, this definition has been out of date for nearly 2,500 years. Mathematicians now see their work as the study of patterns—real or imagined, visual or mental, arising from the natural world or from within the human mind. Using this basic definition as his central theme, Devlin explores the patterns of counting, measuring, reasoning, motion, shape, position, and prediction, revealing the powerful influence mathematics has over our perception of reality. Interweaving historical highlights and current developments, and using a minimum of formulas, Devlin celebrates the precision, purity, and elegance of mathematics.
