For most tracking applications the Kalman filter is reliable and efficient, but it is limited to a relatively restricted class of linear Gaussian problems. To solve problems beyond this restricted class, particle filters are proving to be dependable methods for stochastic dynamic estimation. Packed with 867 equations, this cutting-edge book introduces the latest advances in particle filter theory, discusses their relevance to defense surveillance systems, and examines defense-related applications of particle filters to nonlinear and non-Gaussian problems. With this hands-on guide, you can develop more accurate and reliable nonlinear filter designs and more precisely predict the performance of these designs. You can also apply particle filters to tracking a ballistic object, detection and tracking of stealthy targets, tracking through the blind Doppler zone, bi-static radar tracking, passive ranging (bearings-only tracking) of maneuvering targets, range-only tracking, terrain-aided tracking of ground vehicles, and group and extended object tracking.

Tracking Consciousness Before Birth and Beyond is based on the author’s recollection of his conscious life before birth. In the 1st part of the book, the author narrates the memories. In the 2nd part, he explains and analyses the narrative from the adult point of view and shows its relationship to the scientific and empirical knowledge of life. In the 3rd, he discusses in depth the various events in the prenatal period such as conception, recognition of food as a source of energy and body building substance, starting the heart, building the brain and body, power of the life force, tree of life, the unborn’s innate intelligence in the timing and execution of its birth and others. Going “beyond”, the author reveals a plausible theory of the origin of life on Earth based on the quantum concept of the sun’s energy as its life force and its awareness as consciousness, evolution as a creative act and more. The book should be of interest to life scientists as well as laymen and those seeking life understanding and self-realization.

Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize | A New York Times Editor's Choice “[A] grounded, bracingly intelligent study” —Nature Prizewinning science journalist Sonia Shah presents a startling examination of the pandemics that have ravaged humanity—and shows us how history can prepare us to confront the most serious acute global health emergency of our time. Over the past fifty years, more than three hundred infectious diseases have either emerged or reemerged, appearing in places where they’ve never before been seen. Years before the sudden arrival of COVID-19, ninety percent of epidemiologists predicted that one of them would cause a deadly pandemic sometime in the next two generations. It might be Ebola, avian flu, a drug-resistant superbug, or something completely new, like the novel virus the world is confronting today. While it was impossible to predict the emergence of SARS-CoV-2—and it remains impossible to predict which pathogen will cause the next global outbreak—by unraveling the stories of pandemics past we can begin to better understand our own future, and to prepare for what it holds in store. In Pandemic: Tracking Contagions, from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond, Sonia Shah interweaves history, original reportage, and personal narrative to explore the origins of epidemics, drawing parallels between cholera—one of history’s most deadly and disruptive pandemic-causing pathogens—and the new diseases that stalk humankind today. She tracks each stage of cholera’s dramatic journey, from its emergence in the South Asian hinterlands as a harmless microbe to its rapid dispersal across the nineteenth-century world, all the way to its latest beachhead in Haiti. Along the way she reports on the pathogens now following in cholera’s footsteps, from the MRSA bacterium that besieges her own family to the never-before-seen killers coming out of China’s wet markets, the surgical wards of New Delhi, and the suburban backyards of the East Coast. Delving into the convoluted science, strange politics, and checkered history of one of the world’s deadliest diseases, Pandemic is a work of epidemiological history like no other, with urgent lessons for our own time. “Shah proves a disquieting Virgil, guiding us through the hells ruled by [infectious diseases] . . . the power of Shah's account lies in her ability to track simultaneously the multiple dimensions of the public-health crises we are facing.” —The Chicago Tribune

Abstract : Academic tracking, placing students in different classes based on past performance, is a common feature of the American secondary school system. A longitudinal study of secondary students' chemistry self-concept scores was conducted, and one feature of the study was the presence of academic tracking. Though academic tracking is one way to group data for analysis, since students are naturally grouped in their classes, we aimed to uncover other groupings characterized by their self-concept scores. A cluster analysis was performed using scores from the chemistry and mathematics subscales of the chemistry self-concept inventory. The analysis yielded five clusters, four of which demonstrate a positive relationship between chemistry and mathematics self-concept scores. One cluster, however, was composed of students with low chemistry self-concept scores and high mathematics self-concept scores. Self-Organizing Maps (SOMs), new to chemistry education research (CER), were used to identify smaller groupings of students within the clusters to better understand students' self-concept. This technique was also used to explore longitudinal trends in students' chemistry self-concept data. This work has important implications for tracking in chemistry, the value of considering the affective characteristics of chemistry students, and the prospect of SOMs as a new CER tool.

In Germany, legislation concerning the treatment of prisoners and detainees in forensic psychiatric institutions, as well as the interpretation of the relevant law have to a large extent been shaped by the case-law of the Federal Constitutional Court. The author, from 2002 to 2014 Associate Justice on the Federal Constitutional Court, presents a comprehensive survey of that case-law on the basis of extracts from decisions, covering general principles -- concerning, for example, security, resocialisation, the implementation of preventive detention, and the admissible reach of privatisations -- as well as all kinds of living conditions and measures to which prisoners and other detainees may or may not be subjected, and the relevant constitional requirements concerning judicial protection. (Publisher's description).

A fascinating tour of the last five decades of contemporary art in New York City, showing how artists are catalysts of gentrification and how neighborhoods in turn shape their art--with special insights into the work of artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cindy Sherman, and Jeff Koons Stories of New York City's fabled art scene conjure up artists' lofts in SoHo, studios in Brooklyn, and block after block of galleries in Chelsea. But today, no artist can afford a SoHo loft, Brooklyn has long gentrified, and even the galleries of Chelsea are beginning to move on. Art on the Block takes the reader on a journey through the neighborhoods that shape, and are shaped by, New York's ever-evolving art world. Based on interviews with over 150 gallery directors, as well as the artists themselves, art historian and cultural commentator Ann Fensterstock explores the genesis, expansion, maturation and ultimate restless migration of the New York art world from one initially undiscovered neighborhood to the next. Opening with the colonization of the desolate South Houston Industrial District in the late 1960s, the book follows the art world's subsequent elopements to the East Village in the ‘80s, Brooklyn in the mid-90s, Chelsea at the beginning of the new millennium and, most recently, to the Lower East Side. With a look to the newest neighborhoods that artists are just now beginning to occupy, this is a must-read for both art enthusiasts as well as anyone with a passion for New York City.

This book addresses important findings, assumptions, problems, hopes, and future guidelines on the use of advanced research techniques to study the moment-by-moment mental processes that occur while a reader or listener is understanding language. The core techniques are eye tracking and ERPs, with some extensions to others such as fMRI. The On-line Study of Sentence Comprehension has been written by top researchers in the field of psycholinguistics, who are also leading experts in the use of eye tracking and ERPs. This book combines comprehensive overviews of the state of the art on theoretical progress, the latest on assumptions behind the use of eye movements (reading and visual world) and ERPs methods with papers that address specific research questions. This work covers not only methodological issues but also discusses the theoretical progress in understanding language processing using temporally fine-grained methods.

Abstract Body: Statement of problemIn 2010 the University of Leicester Cardiovascular Department was provided with a substantial grant to establish theLeicester Biomedical Research Unit. Since it began, the primary biobanking project, Biomedical Research InformaticsCentre for Cardiovascular Science (BRICCS), has recruited over 7,000 patients. BRICCS is a system within theInformatics platform designed to capture and code clinical information as well as biological specimens about patientswith cardiovascular disease that are seen at Leicesteru2019s Hospitals specifically for research purposes. This recruitmentenables us to match patients to particular studies and speed up the recruitment phase of new research. With theexpectation of such a large pool of samples we wanted a single platform that would allow us to capture and track allthe information related to the specimens we would be collecting.Proposed solutionWe established a set of criteria that to was required to meet the needs of our newly established biobank and primarilythe BRICCS study. The Laboratory Information System (LIMS) had to be able to track the life of a specimen, fromsample recruitment and freezing to being able to distribute to researchers. It had to be easy to use, highly secure andhighly efficient. It also needed to have a user friendly and easy to navigate interface. Our search for such a secure,robust and flexible specimen management tool led us to the adoption of OpenSpecimen.OpenSpecimen is an open source biobanking informatics platform that permits users to enter and retrieve dataconcerning the collection, storage, quality assurance and distribution of biospecimens. It also provides us with theflexibility of tailoring future protocols to any new studies that we would take on board. The ease of use facilitates thehigh throughput rapid data entry into the database to streamline our sample retrieval process. The ability to continuallyadd new features such as DNA quantity and quality to our samples has helped to keep a single source for all of thespecimen related data.ConclusionInitially as we started as a single project we have become a bigger more accommodating biobank u2013 now incorporatingup to 20 individual projects with varying sample tracking requirements. With now over 500,000 samples within ourbiobank, without a tool such as OpenSpecimen we would not be able to maintain an audit trail of the specimens frompoint of collection right down to usage, shipping or disposal.
