Sedimentary Basins: Evolution, Methods of Formation and Recent Advances

In this collection, the sedimentary basins of the northern Campania Tyrrhenian margin have been investigated in detail aimed at studying and reconstructing their Quaternary geologic evolution through seismo-stratigraphic data. This analysis, carried out using multichannel seismic data of the Zone E, has allowed to infer the subsurface volcanism in the Gaeta Gulf through the identification of a wide buried volcanic edifice, fossilized...

Another Book on Engineering Mechanics: Statics Part 2 Shear Forces and Bending Moments

The aim of this book is to provide students of engineering mechanics with detailed solutions of a number of selected engineering mechanics problems. It was written on the demand of the students in our courses who try to understand given solutions from their books or to solve problems from scratch. Often solutions in text books cannot be reproduced due to minor mistakes or lack of mathematical knowledge. Here we walk the reader step b...

Reconstruction-Free Compressive Vision for Surveillance Applications

Exploiting CS allows the creation of new types of high-performance sensors including infrared cameras and magnetic resonance imaging systems. Advances in computer vision and deep learning have enabled new applications of automated systems. In this book, we introduce reconstruction-free compressive vision, where image processing and computer vision algorithms are embedded directly in the compressive domain, without the need for first ...

Bioinspired Chemistry: From Enzymes to Synthetic Models

The observation of Nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration to promote innovations in chemistry. The bioinspired approach is a revolution in our paradigms because it is not based on what we can take to nature, but on what we can learn from it. Enzymatic systems involved in solar energy conversion (photosystem), hydrogen production (hydrogenases), dioxygen activation (oxydases et oxygenases), CO₂ reduction (CO dehydrogenase) u...
