The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most important industries in the world, offering new medicines, vaccines, and cures to a global population.Â It is a massive industry, worthy of a deep and thorough examination of its processes and chemistry, with a view toward sustainability.Â The authors describe what is and isn't truly sustainable, offering a new approach and a new definition of the sustainability of pharmaceutical and chemical engineering and the science behind it.Â This is a cutting-edge work, aimed at engineers, scientists, researchers, chemists, and students.
An accessible introduction to statistics in the criminal justice field.
Elementary Statistics in Criminal Justice Research, Fourth Edition, provides an introduction to statistics for students in criminal justice and criminology. Created specifically for students who many not have strong backgrounds in mathematics, the text focuses primarily on the statistical theories and methods that criminal justice students need to understand. This text was adapted from the best-sellingElementary Statistics in Social Research, and provides broad and accessible coverage that will appeal to students and instructors alike.
Engineers and scientists often need to sell an innovative idea for a new product to top management. Those who occupy product planning positions also need to be constantly scanning ideas for improving value. The engineer as product planner must learn to think like its major competitor using customer value as a guide. This book provides essential support for engineers and scientists who are required to make realistic business cases for new product concepts.
