Data Mining and Predictive Analytics (Wiley Series on Methods and Applications in Data Mining) 2nd Edition
Mechanics of Flight is an ideal introduction to the basic principles of flight for students embarking on courses in aerospace engineering, student pilots, apprentices in the industry and anyone who is simply interested in aircraft and space flight. Written in a straightforward and jargon-free style, this popular classic text makes the fascinating topic of aircraft flight engaging and easy to understand. Starting with an overview of the relevant aspects of mechanics, the book goes on to cover topics such as air and airflow, aerofoils, thrust, level flight, gliding, landing, performance, manoeuvres, stability and control. Important aspects of these topics are illustrated by a description of a trial flight in a light aircraft. The book also deals with flight at transonic and supersonic speeds, and finally orbital and space flight.
Investments AGE is adaption of Investments, Ninth Edition, by Zvi Bodie, Alex Kane, and Alan J. Marcus. It blends practical and theoretical coverage, while maintaining an appropriate rigor and a clear writing style. Its unifying theme is that security markets are nearly efficient, meaning that most securities are priced appropriately given their risk and return attributes. The text places greater emphasis on asset allocation and offers a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets than most investment texts.
This Asia Global Edition puts the spotlight on financial instruments, markets, trading practices, institutions, and regulatory framework pertinent to the Asian financial landscape. Students will find the latest reviews and analyses of global financial developments, with an Asian focus, in our Words from the Street features as well as integrated into the main text. With this text, they will have a ringside perspective of both Asian and global markets and be able to form a clear stand on emerging trends. The theoretical and conceptual aspects of investment analysis are not context specific so very few changes were made to such material.
