An Essential Guide to Electrical Conductivity and Resistivity


Luke Lewin (Editor)

Series: Physics Research and Technology

An Essential Guide to Electrical Conductivity and Resistivity opens with experimental and theoretical data on the important structurally sensitive property of the molten oxide-chloride systems КCl (50 mol. %)–PbCl2 (50 mol. %), CsCl (18.3 mol. %)–PbCl2 (81.7 mol. %) and CsCl (71.3 mol. %)–PbCl2 (28.7 mol. %) with PbO concentration reaching 20 mol.% in the temperature range of 764 – 917 K.

This compilation also reports on recent developments in the stabilization, carbonization, and activation of naturally grown biomass, their physical and chemical properties, and major applications in supercapacitors.

A brief overview of the application areas of the electrical resistivity method, a non-destructive and inexpensive geophysical technique, as well as comprehensive and practical overview of its results in environmental and geotechnical projects, archeology and stone cultural heritage is presented.

“Delirium is unquestionably one of the most important psychiatric illnesses in those who have general medical illness, as it frequently results in a substantially increased risk of morbidity and mortality, if not prevented or treated early and effectively. Delirium is also unique in that it is both a “psychiatric” and general medical illness, which requires vigilance and routine partnering with other treatment partners in order to optimally manage. Bourgeois and colleagues have done a masterful job with defining and presenting a practical and balanced approach to the prevention and treatment of delirium. It is also helpful to read their detailed evidence-based treatment plans for the most common causes of delirium (e.g. alcohol related, medication induced). I encourage all psychiatrists and other providers to read this text and use as a valuable clinical resource. Furthermore, this text should be required reading for medical students; psychiatry residents; psychosomatic fellows; internal medicine residents; family medicine residents; physician assistant students; nurse practitioner students; emergency medicine residents and neurology residents. I appreciate this important clinically relevant addition to the medical literature and strongly recommend it for medical providers.”

“This text is timely, important, and much-needed by clinicians, researchers, and even healthcare system administrators. The incidence, prevalence, morbidity, mortality, effects of persistence/recurrence, and costs of delirium are under-estimated and always breathtaking. There are few resources devoted to delirium assessment and management that are consolidated into a single source.” READ MORE…James R. Rundell, MD
