              Ethics and Future Generations

              Existing human beings stand in a unique relationship of asymmetrical influence over future generations. Our choices now can settle whether there are any human beings in the further future; how many will exist; what capacities and abilities they might have; and what the character ...of the natural world they inhabit is like. This volume, with contributions from both new voices and prominent, established figures in moral and political philosophy, examines three generally underexplored themes concerning morality and our relationship to future generations. First, would it be morally wrong to allow humanity to go extinct? Or do we have moral reasons to try and ensure that humanity continues into the indefinite future? Second, if humanity is to continue into the future, how many people should there be? And is it morally important whether they have lives that are of high quality or are just barely worth living? And third, how can we best make sense of the intuitive idea that by not taking action on climate change and preserving natural resources, we are in some way wronging future generations? This book was originally published as a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Philosophy.

              Identification and development of small molecule inhibitors against Herpes Simplex Virus-1(HSV-1) thymidine kinase could help in the treatment of cancer. So, through this work some novel compounds have been proposed which can be further tested to encounter this never lasting issu...e. Herein, we have exploited the crystal structure of HSV-1 thymidine kinase and its binding interactions with Ganciclovir. We used several freely available software's like Autodock, Dock blaster, CUPSAT, Chimera and Avogadro for drug designing. This book, designed to provide the enough information to understand the principles of drug designing by utilizing basic tools of bioinformatics.

              Submerged arc welding generates high amount of heat and due to continuous heat and cooling the residual stress developed in weldment. This book is an effort to understand the temperature distribution and residual stress development in welding. The thermocouples are used to online... measurement of temperatures and XRD technique for the residual stress measurements. Control of residual stress development can improve the weld strength and reduce distortion.

              Computed tomography commonly referred as CT scanning has emerged as the imaging modality of choice over years.Today computed tomography represents a perfectly natural and established technology which has advanced to become an indispensable and integral component of routine works ...in clinics and medical practices. It is one of the most important methods of radiological diagnosis.It delivers non-superimposed, cross-sectional images of the body, which can show smaller contrast differences than conventional x-ray images. In recent years it has become the essential diagnostic tool in the field of dentistry. This handbook describes the basic principles of computed tomography along with the procedure of tomographic acquisition and normal tomographic anatomy of maxillofacial region. This handbook will help dental students & practitioners to understand the basic principles and interpret the CT scans of maxillofacial region.
