What if you were suddenly in charge? After the initial excitement of a "battlefield promotion" wears off, you need to get in the trenches and get the job done. And if you are already in the trenches, you need quick access to information that will make your job easier. A comprehensive desk reference and guide, Clinical Studies Management: A Practical Guide to Success provides the practical skills and methods required by project managers running clinical studies.
The author explains a framework for project management based on seven core themes: goals, budgets, time, resources, measurement, communication, and training. He solidly reviews how modern management theory can be brought to bear on the specialized demands of clinical trials. The book covers the practical how-tos of writing and costing a study, organizing an Investigator Meeting, and improving patient enrollment in your study. Divided into stand-alone chapters that make the information easy to find, the book presents a comprehensive overview of drug development processes and the trends that are driving change.
If you are new to study management, the book rapidly brings you up to speed. If you are an experienced study manager, it gives you a convenient and authoritative reference you will use on a daily basis. Whatever your level of experience, Clinical Studies Management: A Practical Guide to Success supplies the tools you need to manage your projects efficiently and effectively.
Understanding Complex Datasets: Data Mining with Matrix Decompositions
Many data-mining algorithms were developed for the world of business, for
example for customer relationship management. The datasets in this environment,
although large, are simple in the sense that a customer either did or
did not buy three widgets, or did or did not fly from Chicago to Albuquerque.

Mechanical Logic in Three-Dimensional Space
The book explores how build a mechanical inferences by making use of arithmetic operations on a string of numbers representing statements. In this way logic is reduced to a branch of the combinatory calculus. It covers the field of traditional logic by showing that any kind of inference can be mechanically reduced to three-variables and...
Towards a Compact Thin-Disk-Based Femtosecond XUV Source (Springer Theses)
This thesis provides unique information on the Kerr-lens mode-locking (KLM) technique applied to a thin-disk laser. It describes in detail cavity geometry, the qualitative approach to KLM, and self-starting behavior in the regime of both negative and positive dispersion. Comprehensive comparative analysis of KLM and semiconductor saturable...
