More and more people nowadays feel stressed out. In many cases this even leads to burnout. They feel empty, they cannot go on anymore, they are without motivation, power, and joy. Over the past ten years, the number of people suffering from this state of exhaustion has quintupled in Germany and more than one third of the work force feels that way. In addition, 79% of them show signs of stress and are unable to relax after hours. A similar situation can be seen in sports: The athletes dream of winning titles, they need success as a means of approval of personal strength. In addition, top-performance sports have become much more financially lucrative. All of this has led to rising mental and physical demands. Due to this, athletes experience more exhaustion, extreme performance fluctuations, mood swings, and often inexplicable injuries. This book provides tips on how to improve your quality of life and performance, and how to stay healthy and productive by recognizing and correcting biochemical disorders at an early stage. With an optimal supply of energy, many of these symptoms of overload can be avoided. Many international top athletes (Olympic champions, World and European champions) have been profiting from these findings for the past few years and are able to train – pain- and injury-free – on a higher level of performance.

The interest for :I:~ modulation-based NO converters has significantly increased in the last years. The reason for that is twofold. On the one hand, unlike other converters that need accurate building blocks to obtain high res olution, :I:~ converters show low sensitivity to the imperfections of their building blocks. This is achieved through extensive use of digital signal pro cessing - a desirable feature regarding the implementation of NO interfaces in mainstream CMOS technologies which are better suited for implementing fast, dense, digital circuits than accurate analog circuits. On the other hand, the number of applications with industrial interest has also grown. In fact, starting from the earliest in the audio band, today we can find :I:~ converters in a large variety of NO interfaces, ranging from instrumentation to commu nications. These advances have been supported by a number of research works that have lead to a considerably large amount of published papers and books cov ering different sub-topics: from purely theoretical aspects to architecture and circuit optimization. However, so much material is often difficultly digested by those unexperienced designers who have been committed to developing a :I:~ converter, mainly because there is a lack of methodology. In our view, a clear methodology is necessary in :I:~ modulator design because all related tasks are rather hard.

Following the practice of all previous editions of the VECPAR series of conf- ences, the most signi'cant contributions have been organized and made ava- able in a book, edited after the conference, and after a second review of all orally presented papers at VECPAR 2006,the seventh International Meeting on High-PerformanceComputing forComputationalScience,held inRiodeJaneiro (Brazil), June 10-13, 2006. After the conference is ?nished this is what is left, a document that, we hope, can be a reference to a wide range of researchers in computational science. For the ?rst time, and re'ecting the conference programme of the seventh edition of the VECPAR series, this book includes some of the presentations at the two workshops, namely: WCGC 2006 -- Workshop on Computational Grids and Clusters: Models, Middlewares, Testbeds, Architectures, User Feedback HPDGrid 2006 -- International Workshop on High-Performance Data M- agement in Grid Environments Both the workshops and the conference programme evidence the current trends in computer and computational science, with an increasing importance of the Grid technologies.

This study outlines the framework of high performance financial systems and the parameters for financial firms operating in them. It begins with an intuitive structural model of financial intermediation, and then considers issues facing players in, and users of the financial system, with emphasis on strategic positioning alternatives facing banks and other types of financial institutions, and the principal determinants of their competitive performance. This volume also deals with a critical and controversial dimension in the design of the financial system, the relationship between the structure of financial institutions, and the linkages to ownership and the control process in industry. Using Singapore as a case study, the final two sections apply the lessons of the economics of financial system performance to the battle among financial centres.

This book presents models and procedures to design pipeline analog-to-digital converters, compensating for device inaccuracies, so that high-performance specs can be met within short design cycles. These models are capable of capturing and predicting the behavior of pipeline data converters within less than half-a-bit deviation, versus transistor-level simulations. As a result, far fewer model iterations are required across the design cycle. Models described in this book accurately predict transient behaviors, which are key to the performance of discrete-time systems and hence to the performance of pipeline data converters.

"A transfixing book on how to sustain peak performance and avoid burnout" —Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Option B, Originals, and Give and Take "An essential playbook for success, happiness, and getting the most out of ourselves." Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive and The Sleep Revolution "I doubt anyone can read Peak Performance without itching to apply something to their own lives." —David Epstein, New York Times bestselling author of The Sports Gene A few common principles drive performance, regardless of the field or the task at hand. Whether someone is trying to qualify for the Olympics, break ground in mathematical theory or craft an artistic masterpiece, many of the practices that lead to great success are the same. In Peak Performance, Brad Stulberg, a former McKinsey and Company consultant and writer who covers health and the science of human performance, and Steve Magness, a performance scientist and coach of Olympic athletes, team up to demystify these practices and demonstrate how you can achieve your best. The first book of its kind, Peak Performance combines the inspiring stories of top performers across a range of capabilities—from athletic to intellectual and artistic—with the latest scientific insights into the cognitive and neurochemical factors that drive performance in all domains. In doing so, Peak Performance uncovers new linkages that hold promise as performance enhancers but have been overlooked in our traditionally-siloed ways of thinking. The result is a life-changing book in which you can learn how to enhance your performance via myriad ways including: optimally alternating between periods of intense work and rest; priming the body and mind for enhanced productivity; and developing and harnessing the power of a self-transcending purpose. In revealing the science of great performance and the stories of great performers across a wide range of capabilities, Peak Performance uncovers the secrets of success, and coaches you on how to use them. If you want to take your game to the next level, whatever "your game" may be, Peak Performance will teach you how.

"This Memo to the CEO explains why the fusion of high performance with high integrity is the foundation of the contemporary corporation, and why it is necessary - not only to avoid the catastrophic impact of integrity lapses, but to sustain companies in today's ruthlessly competitive environment." "This Memo reframes crucial debates on corporate governance, pay for CEO performance, and the real sources of business ethics. It provides senior executives with a much-needed blueprint for fusing the twin goals of capitalism - high performance with high integrity - in the high-speed, high-pressure twenty-first-century global economy."--Jacket.
