It has been the authors' experience that the overwhelming majority of students in MBA derivatives courses go on to careers where a deep conceptual, rather than solely mathematical, understanding of products and models is required. The first edition of Derivatives looks to create precisely such a blended approach, one that is formal and rigorous, yet intuitive and accessible.
The main body of this book is divided into six parts. Parts 1-3 cover, respectively, futures and forwards; options; and swaps. Part 4 examines term-structure modeling and the pricing of interest-rate derivatives, while Part 5 is concerned with credit derivatives and the modeling of credit risk. Part 6 discusses computational issues.
L'analyse détaillée du Deuxième Protocole de 1999 relatif à la Convention de La Haye de 1954 pour la protection des biens culturels en cas de conflit armé a été réalisée par le Professeur Jiří Toman à la demande de l'UNESCO. Cette étude complète la publication réalisée par le même auteur, et publiée en 1994.
Le présent commentaire constitue une traduction revue et augmentée de l'ouvrage qui a été réalisé par le Professeur Jiří Toman en 2009 sur la même problématique en langue anglaise. Il a pour but de fournir un outil technique permettant aux praticiens, diplomates, fonctionnaires internationaux et étudiants de comprendre le système actuel de la protection des biens culturels en cas de conflit armé, et traduit la volonté de l'UNESCO de rendre cette matière accessible au plus grand nombre.
Poetry. San Francisco poet, literary critic, educator, librarian, blogger and longtime resident Robin Tremblay- McGaw presents a carefully crafted selection of poems which "discovers a contrapuntal history in the displacements of (gendered) language" (Robert Glück), and which brings to the reader's table "a great delectable feast of a book" (Laura Moriarty).
In 1931, the New York Times hailed Belle Case La Follette as "probably the least known yet most influential of all the American women who have had to do with public affairs." A dedicated advocate for women's suffrage, peace, and other causes, she served as a key advisor to her husband, leading Progressive politician Robert La Follette. She also wielded considerable influence through her own speeches and journalism, as when she opposed racism by speaking out against the segregation of the federal government under President Woodrow Wilson.
In a concise, lively, and engaging narrative, Nancy C. Unger shows how Belle La Follette uniquely contributed to progressive reform, as well as the ways her work was typical of women--and progressives--of her time. Supported by primary documents and a robust companion website, this book introduces students of American history to an extraordinary woman and the era of Progressive reform.
Internet Congestion Control provides a description of some of the most important topics in the area of congestion control in computer networks, with special emphasis on the analytical modeling of congestion control algorithms.
The field of congestion control has seen many notable advances in recent years and the purpose of this book, which is targeted towards the advanced and intermediate reader, is to inform about the most important developments in this area. The book should enable the reader to gain a good understanding of the application of congestion control theory to a number of application domains such as Data Center Networks, Video Streaming, High Speed Links and Broadband Wireless Networks. When seen through the lens of analytical modeling, there are a number of common threads that run through the design and analysis of congestion control protocols in all these different areas, which are emphasized in this book. The book also cuts a path through the profusion of algorithms in the literature, and puts the topic on a systematic and logical footing.
Internet Congestion Control provides practicing network engineers and researchers with a comprehensive and accessible coverage of analytical models of congestion control algorithms, and gives readers everything needed to understand the latest developments and research in this area.

This volume containing 25 chapters written by international experts covers the principles of emerging optical technologies in the studies of normal and abnormal kinematics, appearance and behavior of the human vocal folds. Volume I is a precursor to the applications of these technologies in clinical evaluations of normal, abnormal and artistic voice presented in over 40 chapters within Volume II.
