Title:Particle Penetration and Radiation Effects Volume 2 [electronic resource] : Penetration of Atomic and Molecular Ions
Author(s): Peter Sigmund
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book represents volume 2 of a 3-volume monograph on Particle Penetration and Radiation Effects. While volume 1 addressed the basic theory of scattering and stopping of swift point charges, i.e., protons, antiprotons and alphaparticles, the prese nt volume focuses on ions heavier than helium as well as molecules and clusters over an energy range from a few keV/u to a few hundred MeV/u. The book addressed the foundations in atomic-collision physics of a widevariety of application areas within mater ials and surface science and engineering, micro and nano science and technology, radiation medicine and biology as well as nuclear and particle physics. Problems have been added to all chapters.This should make the book useful for both self-study and adva nced university courses. An effort has been made to establish a unified notation throughout the monograph

Title:Radiation Damage in Biomolecular Systems [electronic resource]

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Since the discovery of X-rays and radioactivity, ionizing radiations have been widely applied in medicine both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The risks associated with radiation exposure and handling led to the paralleldevelopment of the fi eld of radiation protection. Pioneering experiments done by Sanche and co-workers in 2000 showed that low-energy secondary electrons, which are abundantly generated along radiation tracks, are primarily responsiblefor radiation damage through successive i nteractions with the molecular constituents of the medium. Apart from ionizing processes, which are usually related to radiation damage, below the ionization level low-energy electrons caninduce molecular fragmentation via dissociative processes such as i nternal excitation and electron attachment. This prompted collaborative projects between different research groups from European countries together with otherspecialists from Canada, the USA and Australia. This booksummarizes the advances achieved by thes e research groups after more than ten years of studies on radiation damage in biomolecular systems. The book will be of interest toresearchers and advanced students in the fields of radiation physics, chemistry and radiation therapy

Patrick Ludwig
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complex plasmas differ from traditional plasmas in many ways: these are low-temperature high pressure systems containing nanometer to micrometer size particles which may be highly charged and strongly interacting. The particlesmay be chemically react ing or be in contact with solid surfaces, and the electrons may show quantum behaviour. These interesting properties have led to many applications of complex plasmas in technology, medicine and science. Yetcomplex plasmas are extremely complicated, both e xperimentally and theoretically, and require a variety of new approaches which go beyond standard plasma physics courses. This book fills this gap presenting an introduction to theory,experiment and computer simulation in this field. Based on tutorial lec tures at a very successful recent Summer Institute, the presentation is ideally suited for graduate students, plasma physicists and experienced undergraduates

Title:The Physics of Proteins [electronic resource] An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Physics and the life sciences have established new connections within the past few decades, resulting in biological physics as an established subfield with strong groups working in many physics departments. These interactionsbetween physics and biolo gy form a two-way street with physics providing new tools and concepts for understanding life, while biological systems can yield new insights into the physics of complex systems. To address the challenges ofthis interdisciplinary area, The Physics of Pro teins: An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics is divided into three interconnected sections. In Parts I and II, early chapters introduce the terminology anddescribe the main biological systems that physicists will encounter. Simila rities between biomolecules, glasses, and solids are stressed with an emphasis on the fundamental concepts of living systems. The central section (Parts III andIV) delves into the dynamics of complex systems. A main theme is the realization that biologica l systems, in particular proteins, do not exist in unique conformations but can assume a very large number of slightly different structures.This complexity is captured in the concept of a free energy landscape and leads to the conclusion that fluctuations are crucial for the functioning of biological systems. The final chapter of this section challenges the reader to applythese concepts to a problem that appears in the current literature. An extensive series of appendices (Part V) provide descriptions of the key physical tools and analytical methods that have proven powerful in the study of the physicsof proteins. The appendices are designed to be consulted throughout the section on protein dynamics without breaking the deductive flow of the logic in the central section of the book

Note:Hardly a day goes by without news headlines concerning infectious disease threats. Currently the spectre of a pandemic of influenza A|H1N1 is raising its head, and heated debates are taking place about the pros and cons ofvaccinating young girls agai nst human papilloma virus. For an evidence-based and responsible communication of infectious disease topics to avoid misunderstandings and overreaction of the public, we need solid scientific knowledge andan understanding of all aspects of infectious dise ases and their control. The aim of our book is to present the reader with the general picture and the main ideas of the subject. The book introduces the reader to methodological aspectsof epidemiology that are specific for infectious diseases and provides insight into the epidemiology of some classes of infectious diseases characterized by their main modes of transmission. This choice of topics bridges the gapbetween scientific research on the clinical, biological, mathematical, social and economic aspect s of infectious diseases and their applications in public health. The book will help the reader to understand the impact of infectiousdiseases on modern society and the instruments that policy makers have at their disposal to deal with these challenges. I t is written for students of the health sciences, both of curative medicine and public health, and for expertsthat are active in these and related domains, and it may be of interest for the educated layman since the technical level is kept relatively low. The authors are internationally renowned experts in the field of infectious diseaseepidemiology. The editors come from different scientific backgrounds but have been devoted to research in infectious disease epidemiology for many years.

Title:Non-Protein Coding RNAs [electronic resource]

Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book assembles chapters from experts in the Biophysics of RNA to provide a broadly accessible snapshot of the current status of this rapidly expanding field. The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to thediscoverers of RNA int erference, highlighting just one example of a large number of non-protein coding RNAs. Because non-protein coding RNAs outnumber protein coding genes in mammals and other higher eukaryotes, it is now thought thatthe complexity of organisms is correlated w ith the fraction of their genome that encodes non-protein coding RNAs. Essential biological processes as diverse as cell differentiation, suppression of infecting viruses and parasitictransposons, higher-level organization of eukaryotic chromosomes, and g ene expression itself are found to largely be directed by non-protein coding RNAs. The biophysical study of these RNAs employs X-ray crystallography, NMR, ensembleand single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, optical tweezers, cryo-electron microscopy, a nd other quantitative tools. This emerging field has begun to unravel the molecular underpinnings of how RNAs fulfill their multitude of rolesin sustaining cellular life. The physical and chemical understanding of RNA biology that results from biophysical studies is critical to our ability to harness RNAs for use in biotechnology and human therapy, a prospect that hasrecently spawned a multi-billion dollar industry

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In todays world, three great classes of non-infectious diseases the metabolic syndromes (such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis), the cancers, and the neurodegenerative disorders have risen to the fore. Thesediseases, all associated with incre asing age of an individual, have proven to be remarkably complex and difficult to treat. This is because, in large measure, when the cellular signaling pathways responsible for maintaining homeostasisand health of the body become dysregulated, they genera te equally stable disease states. As a result the body may respond positively to a drug, but only for a while and then revert back to the disease state. Cellular Signaling inHealth and Disease summarizes our current understanding of these regulatory netwo rks in the healthy and diseased states, showing which molecular components might be prime targets for drug interventions. This is accomplished bypresenting models that explain in mechanistic, molecular detail how a particular part of the cellular signalin g web operates properly in health and improperly in disease. The stability of the health- and disease-associated states isdynamic and supported by multiple feedback loops acting positively and negatively along with linkages between pathways. During the pa st few years an ongoing series of important discoveries have been made that advance our understandingof how the body works and may guide us on how to better deal with these diseases. These include the discovery of chronic inflammation as a causal factor i n all of these disease classes, the appearance of reactive oxygen species as amessenger molecule that can act both positively and negatively, the propensity of proteins to misfold into aggregation- and disease-prone forms, and the rise of epigenetics incl uding the emergence of small non-coding RNA with importantregulatory functions out of the so-called junk RNA. Chapters are devoted to each of these classes of findings with additional details i

Note:The last decade has seen the development of a number of novel biophysical methods that allow the manipulation and study of individual biomolecules. The ability to monitor biological processes at this fundamental level ofsensitivity has given rise to an improved understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms. Through the removal of ensemble averaging, distributions and fluctuations of molecular properties can be characterized, transientintermediates identified, and catalytic mechanisms elucidate d. By applying forces on biomolecules while monitoring their activity, important information can be obtained on how proteins couple function to structure. The Handbook ofSingle-Molecule Biophysics provides an introduction to these techniques and presents an extensive discussion of the new biological insights obtained from them. Coverage includes: Experimental techniques to monitor and manipulateindividual biomolecules The use of single-molecule techniques in super-resolution and functional imaging Single- molecule studies of physical properties of biomolecules Single-molecule enzymology and biochemistry Single molecules in themembrane Single-molecule techniques in living cells Integration of single-molecule biophysics and nanoscience

Note:This book is dedicated to Olivier Pironneau. For more than 250 years partial differential equations have been clearly the most important tool available to mankind in order to understand a large variety of phenomena, natural atfirst and then those ori ginating from human activity and technological development. Mechanics, physics and their engineering applications were the first to benefit from the impact of partial differential equations on modeling anddesign, but a little less than a century ago the S chrdinger equation was the key opening the door to the application of partial differential equations to quantum chemistry, for small atomic and molecular systems at first, but thenfor systems of fast growing complexity. Mathematical modeling methods based on partial differential equations form an important part of contemporary science and are widely used in engineering and scientific applications. In this bookseveral experts in this field present their latest results and discuss trends in the numerical an alysis of partial differential equations. The first part is devoted to discontinuous Galerkin and mixed finite element methods, bothmethodologies of fast growing popularity. They are applied to a variety of linear and nonlinear problems, including the Sto kes problem from fluid mechanics and fully nonlinear elliptic equations of the Monge-Ampre type. Numericalmethods for linear and nonlinear hyperbolic problems are discussed in the second part. The third part is concerned with domain decomposition methods, with applications to scattering problems for wave models and to electronic structurecomputations. The next part is devoted to the numerical simulation of problems in fluid mechanics that involve free surfaces and moving boundaries. The finite difference solution of a problem from spectral geometry has also beenincluded in this part. Inverse problems are known to be efficient models used in geology, medicine, mechanics and many other natural science

Title:Molecular and Cellular Signaling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Beckerman
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform

Note:A small number of signaling pathways, no more than a dozen or so, form a control layer that is responsible for all signaling in and between cells of the human body. The signaling proteins belonging to the control layer determinewhat kinds of cells ar e made during development and how they function during adult life. Malfunctions in the proteins belonging to the control layer are responsible for a host of human diseases ranging from neurological disorders tocancers. Most drugs target components in the control layer, and difficulties in drug design are intimately related to the architecture of the control layer. Molecular and Cellular Signaling provides an introduction to molecular andcellular signaling in biological systems with an emphasis on the unde rlying physical principles. The text is aimed at upper-level undergraduates, graduate students and individuals in medicine and pharmacology interested in broadeningtheir understanding of how cells regulate and coordinate their core activities and how dise ases arise when these regulatory systems malfunction, as well as those in chemistry, physics and computer science interested in pursuing careersin biological and medical physics, bioinformatics and systems biology. To that end, the book includes backgroun d information and review sections, and chapters on signaling in the immune, endocrine (hormonal) and nervous systems. It haschapters on cancer, apoptosis and gene regulation, and contains chapters on bacteria and viruses. In those chapters not specificall y devoted to pathogens, connections between diseases, drugs and signaling are made. Each chapter alsofeatures a problem set to facilitate further discussion and understanding.
