Organic Chemistry with Biological Topics 5th Edition

This is by far the best presentation of organic chemistry I have ever read. Smith has a real talent for taking challenging concepts and making them understandable before gradually, and almost without one noticing, increasing their depth and scope. Her end of chapter problems are well thought out and often entertaining. Each chapter begins with the introduction of a fascinating topic which is then expanded upon in the body of the chap...

Petroleum Systems Analysis-Case Studies

Petroleum systems analysis has come a long way from pure geochemical evaluation to integration of all petroleum elements, including source rock characteristics, hydrocarbon generation, expulsion and migration, traps, seals, and alterations of the hydrocarbon fluids and columns. Quantification of many of these processes is attempted by the use of more complex 3-D basin models. Huge research efforts have been done during the last twent...

Veterinary Hematology: Atlas of Common Domestic and Non-Domestic Species, Third Edition

Link prediction is required to understand the evolutionary theory of computing for different social networks. However, the stochastic growth of the social network leads to various challenges in identifying hidden links, such as representation of graph, distinction between spurious and missing links, selection of link prediction techniques comprised of network features, and identification of network types. Hidden Link Prediction in St...
