This book contains a series of contributions from internationally renowned academics with special expertise in one or other diseases which collectively are grouped under the heading myeloproliferative disorders. There have been many recent developments in understanding the pathophysiology and a number therapeutic innovations in this area. A feature of this book is the speed with which it has been produced – an important factor in this rapidly moving field.

With the 1954 publication of his Foundations of Statistics, in which he proposed a basis that takes into account not only strictly objective and repetitive events, but also vagueness and interpersonal differences, Leonard J. Savage opened the greatest controversy in modern statistical thought. His theory of the...

Recurrence is a significant public health problem. So, this fourth Suvretta meeting, held in February 2006 is intended to concentrate on this problem. Technical nuances of the various operations have been discussed to pursue consensus concerning the best techniques. Methods were explored to improve surgeons' education and look into the...

The authors show that there are underlying mathematical reasons for why games and puzzles are challenging (and perhaps why they are so much fun). They also show that games and puzzles can serve as powerful models of computationâquite different from the usual models of automata and circuitsâoffering a new way of thinking about...

Fork algebras are a formalism based on the relational calculus, with interesting algebraic and metalogical properties. Their representability is especially appealing in computer science, since it allows a closer relationship between their language and models. This book gives a careful account of the results and presents some applications of...
