In a study inspired by author's observation of the spiraling out of control use of mathematics by bankers, financiers and economists, the Western world's reliance on arithmetic and geometry is traced back, with support from the works of Medieval historian Alfred Crosby and of Anthropologist of Knowledge Paul Jorion, to its Medieval and Antiquity roots. The author bases on different areas such as philosophy with François Jullien's Chinese thought and Michel Bitbol with his epistemological reflections.
During the first COVID19 wave, the trust of Greater Paris academic hospitals (Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris) faced an unprecedented situation: a significant number of medical devices were used in extraordinary quantities and international supply chains were defective or interrupted. To overcome the risk of shortage, a team of health professionals and engineers settled a central emergency 3D-printing platform. This book tells the story of this initiative, reports its results, and proposes general guidelines for the integration of additive manufacturing in hospitals. 3D-printing has transformed our approach to the conception and production of the tools we use to treat patients. For the first time in modern history, professional production machines can be located within health institutions. 3D platforms are extraordinary boosters of innovation, research, education, and valorisation. Based on a particular story, this book investigates the paths leading to innovation in public structures and proposes guidelines for the promotion of interactions between health professionals and engineers.
This engineer dictionary includes all the aspects of civil engineering and combat engineering; it is a very useful book when dealing with all buildings aspects, but also regarding defense and security - both at home and abroad: mobility support, countermobility, and also topography and meteorology. It includes the latest changes regarding mines ans booby-traps - and more specifically IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices).
The health information systems of developing countries have made significant progress these last years. Nowadays, the challenge they are facing is that of their use and the acknowledgement of their usefulness by all health-systems players. Indicators at the national level would be of interest if health information systems are effectively operational.
During the last decades major changes were observed in psychiatry practice especially with regards to rehabilitation and reintegration. The TuTo program was initiated to respond to the needs of the psychiatry and mental health fields while enabling an exchange and interaction between professionals and researchers from ten European countries. This publication illustrates the current challenges the young professionals are facing throughout their lives.
This book was first published in French as "Emploi, formation et tutorat en santé mentale. Des innovations nécessaires en Europe" in 2017.
This book is a summary of essential mathematics for undergraduate physics students. Throughout many examples, it developps basic geometry often forgotten or mathematical aspects which are not the focus of physics teachers. It will permit students to feel more comfortable and confident with the study of physics.
Ce dictionnaire du génie est un ouvrage qui couvre tous les aspects du génie civil et du génie militaire, très utile pour tous les aspects touchant la construction, mais aussi la défense et la sécurité, tant intérieure qu'extérieure. Il tient compte des dernières évolutions en matière de mines et de pièges et tout particulièrement les EEI (Engins Explosifs Improvisés), rencontrés aussi bien sur les opérations humanitaires que militaires.
