Patricia Scudamore and Hilton Catt have many years' experience of working in recruitment, enabling them to offer the perspective of both employer and candidate. They have written more than 25 books based on their experience of what it takes to make careers work in today's rapidly changing and uncertain world. They were among the first to embrace the idea of people taking on the job of managing their own careers rather than leaving it to employers to do the thinking for them.
They have seen for themselves the richness and diversity of modern careers, and exploiting this richness and diversity to the full is one of the central themes in their work. They have written a number of other books in the Teach Yourself series.

Calvin Giddings This advanced text/monograph brings together for the first time the variety of techniques used for chemical separations by outlining their common underlying mechanisms. The mass transport phenomena underlying all separation processes are developed in a simple physical-mathematical form, facilitating analysis of alternative separation techniques and the factors integral to separation power. The first six chapters provide background material applicable to a wide range of separation methods, while the final five chapters illustrate specific techniques and methods. 1991 (0 471-52089-6) 320 pp.
Energy experts predict that wholesale electricity prices could easily rise 35 to 65 percent by 2015. Add to this the growing need for energy independence and the need to reduce carbon emissions and it is very clear that the development of low-cost renewable energy, such as solar energy, is essential for our economy and our national security. With the potential for low-cost, renewable energy that can create jobs while reducing our dependency on foreign oil, solar cell technology provides a very attractive and plausible option.
Presenting a well-balanced mix of theory and applications, Solar Cell Technology and Applications addresses critical design aspects representing cutting-edge solar cell technology. It offers complete coverage of the latest advances in the field, including low-cost, high-efficiency elements and the latest approaches in solar cell designs. The book discusses:
Using conventional nomenclature, a consistent set of symbols, and identical units for ease of comprehension, this time-saving resource supplies pioneering engineers, research scientists, professors, and students with the understanding needed to spark the advancements that must be made to maximize the economic and environmental benefits of this relatively untapped and abundant renewable energy resource.
One of the most difficult questions facing human resource managers in both the public and private sectors is how to determine the relative worth of different types of jobs and to set compensation accordingly. A recent innovation developed at the Bell System and field-tested by Northwestern Bell offers the most comprehensive and practical approach to this problem yet devised. Occupational Job Evaluation (OJE) reduces job content to a numerical scale that provides a common denominator for evaluating diverse positions. Written by a human resources specialist who was directly involved in the development and testing of OJE, this book offers a complete analysis of the system together with data on its application and potential uses outside the telecommunications industry.
Besides classical applications (radar and stealth, antennas, microwave engineering), scattering and diffraction are enabling phenomena for some emerging research fields (artificial electromagnetic materials or metamaterials, terahertz technologies, electromagnetic aspects of nano-science). This book is a tutorial for advanced students who need to study diffraction theory. The textbook gives fundamental knowledge about scattering and diffraction of electromagnetic waves and provides some working examples of solutions for practical high-frequency scattering and diffraction problems. <p> The book focuses on the most important diffraction effects and mechanisms influencing the scattering process and describes efficient and physically justified simulation methods – physical optics (PO) and the physical theory of diffraction (PTD) – applicable in typical remote sensing scenarios. <p> The material is presented in a comprehensible and logical form, which relates the presented results to the basic principles of electromagnetic theory. <p> The book covers: <ol> <li>basic definitions and equations (Maxwell’s equations, boundary conditions, edge conditions, radiation conditions, radiation integral, scattering matrix and RCS); <li>basic solution methods (separation of variables, Wiener-Hopf technique, Watson transformation, geometrical optics, geometrical theory of diffraction, physical optics, and physical theory of diffraction); <li>solutions of Maxwell’s equations for basic canonical geometries (a flat material interface, a circular cylinder, a sphere, a wedge, a half plane, a circular disc, an open-ended waveguide, and a cone) and their detailed analysis; <li>explanations of fundamental scattering phenomena (edge and tip singularities, reflection from smoothly curved surfaces and flat non-metallic surfaces, edge-diffracted waves, creeping waves, multiply reflected / diffracted waves, surface waves, waveguide modes, tip-diffracted waves); <li>a PTD-based approach for simulation of scattering and diffraction from generally shaped targets. </ol>
