Library E-Books

We have signed up with three aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a “patron-driven demand” model.

These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus, but only from the following aggregators:

  • Ebook Library, a service of Ebooks Corporation Ltd. of Australia
  • ebrary, based in Palo Alto, a subsidiary of ProQuest
  • EBSCO / netLibrary, Alabama

as well as through the following wholesalers: The Yankee Book Peddler subsidiary of Baker & Taylor, Inc.

The development of modern civilization leads us to solve new problems which did not exist before. The contemporary world faces a great challenge of aging societies, where increasing numbers of senior citizens require constant medical attention. Advanced technologies must be implemented to ensure the safety and well-being of elderly people, patients in hospitals, and disabled persons. These include both sophisticated data acquisition systems and data processing algorithms aimed at the constant and discreet monitoring of persons whilst raising alarm if immediate attention is required.

Computer Systems for Healthcare and Medicine presents a novel look at the introduced problems, including proposed solutions in the form of automated data acquisition and processing systems, which were tested in various environments. Characteristic features include a wide range of sensors used to monitor the situation of the person, and accurate decision making algorithms, often based on the computational intelligence domain.

Technical topics discussed in the book include the following applications for healthcare:

>> Infrared sensors
>> MEMS
>> Ultra wideband radars
>> Deep learning
>> Decision trees
>> Artificial neural networks
>> Gabor filters
>> Decision support systems
