              Sharks and their relatives (chondrichthyans) are often seen as living-fossils that did not evolve much during their more than 400 million years of long history. This is of course wrong, but in addition many forget that their teeth, a hallmark of sharks, developed many innovations... in terms of microstructure that allow these animals to develop a wide range of feeding strategies. The iconic triangular, serrated teeth of the white shark is for example a rather recent innovation linked to the development of a special microstructure of their enameloid. Similar innovations led to a specialization to durophagous diets in some rays. Enameloid microstructure has become a powerful tool to decipher the phylogenetic affinities of isolated fossil chondrichthyan teeth, and more particularly to study the transition between the hybodont and modern elasmobranchs. However, this field of research remains quite cryptic, mostly due to limited taxon sampling and as a result numerous approximations, more particularly at the level of the terminology, are still found in the scientific literature. Moreover, investigations in the relationships between the microstructure and the function of the teeth are only starting. * First book to focus on the evolution of the teeth microstructure of the cartilaginous fishes.* It will offer a complete overview of the terminology used to describe fish tooth microstructures;* It will offer an overview of convergent enameloid microstructures between actinopterygians (ray-finned fishes) and chondrichthyans that will allow to better understand the evolution of this kind of tissue* It will highlight the importance of isolated fossil teeth to understand the evolution of whole clades;* It will discuss the use of isolated fossil teeth to understand the evolution of whole clades

              This book intends to provide the theoretical basis for exterior computations. It addresses first the important question of constructing (pseudo)-Euclidian Grassmmann's algebras. Then it shows how the latter can be used to treat a few basic though significant questions of linear a...lgebra, such as: co-linearity, determinant calculus, linear systems analyzing, volumes computations, invariant endomorphism considerations, skew-symetric operator studies and decompositions, Hodge conjugation and its uses in linear algebra.

              Nonlinear Theory of Elastic Plates provides the theoretical materials for the three plate models - Cosserat plates, Reissner-Mindlin plates and Kirchhoff-Love plates - in the context of finite elastic deformations. One separate chapter is devoted to the linearized theory of Kirch...hoff-Love plates, which allows one to study the vibrations of a pre-stressed plate as well as the static buckling of a plate. All the mathematical results in the tensor theory in curvilinear co-ordinates, necessary to investigate the plate theory in finite deformations, are provided so that the book is self-contained.

              Energy Powering of Battery-Free Wireless Embedded Systems covers the numerous new applications of embedded systems that are envisioned in the context of aeronautics, such as sensor deployment for flight tests or for structural health monitoring. However, the already too large bur...den of on-board cabling asks for wireless solutions. Moreover, such concerns as safety or system lifetime preclude the use of electrochemical energy storage. Ambient energy capture, storage and management are therefore key topics. This book presents these concepts and illustrates them through actual implementations in airliners. With five years of experience within this specialist field, the authors present results from actual flight tests via their partnership with Airbus. The book synthetizes the basic concepts involved, together with practical implementations in airliners, enriching the book through the very specific aspects related to embedded systems deployed in aircrafts. * Features a complete study of the energy management architecture, from general concepts to specific applications* Presents results from thorough studies on electrostatic energy storage* Provides hands-on consideration of industrial implementations in airliners, specifically in harsh environments* Includes actual results obtained from flight tests

              Land Surface Remote Sensing: Environment and Risks explores the use of remote sensing in applications concerning the environment, including desertification and monitoring deforestation and forest fires. The first chapter covers the characterization of aerosols and gases by passiv...e remote sensing. The next chapter presents the correlation of optical images for quantifying the deformation of the Earth's surface and geomorphological processes. The third chapter is examines remote sensing applications in the mining environment. The fourth chapter depicts the strong potential of radar imagery for volcanology and urban and mining subsidence studies. The next two chapters deal respectively with the use of remote sensing in locust control and the contribution of remote sensing to the epidemiology of infectious diseases. In the last ten years, spatial observation of the Earth-particularly continental surfaces-has expanded considerably with the launch of increasing numbers of satellites covering various applications (hydrology, biosphere, flow of surface, snow, ice, landslide, floods). This has paved the way for an explosion in the use of remote sensing data. This book offers essential coverage of space-based observation techniques for continental surfaces. The authors explore major applications and provide a corresponding detailed chapter for the physical principles, physics of measurement, and data processing requirements for each technique, bringing you up-to-date descriptions of techniques used by leading scientists in the field of remote sensing and Earth observation. * Provides clear and concise descriptions of modern remote sensing methods* Explores the most current remote sensing techniques with physical aspects of the measurement (theory) and their applications* Provides chapters on physical principles, measurement, and data processing for each technique described* Describes optical remote sensing technology, including a description of acquisition systems and measure
