The predictive postcode : the geodemographic classification of British society by Richard Webber( )

11 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is not lost on commercial organisations that where we live colours how we view ourselves and others. That is why so many now place us into social groups on the basis of the type of postcode in which we live. Social scientists call this practice commercial sociology . Richard Webber originated Acorn and Mosaic, the two most successful geodemographic classifications. Roger Burrows is a critical interdisciplinary social scientist. Together they chart the origins of this practice and explain the challenges it poses to long-established social scientific beliefs such as: the role of the questionnaire in an era of big data the primacy of theory the relationship between qualitative and quantitative modes of understanding the relevance of visual clues to lay understanding. To help readers evaluate the validity of this form of classification, the book assesses how well geodemographic categories track the emergence of new types of residential neighbourhood and subject a number of key contemporary issues to geodemographic modes of analysis."--
Geodemographics, GIS and neighbourhood targeting by Richard Harris( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Geodemographics, GIS and Neighbourhood Targeting provides an introduction to the methods, theories and classification techniques that form the foundation of neighbourhood analysis and commercial geodemographic products. It examines best practice when using geodemographic methods, software and systems, to balance academic theories with the realities of the business world. Theory is presented in a user-friendly style and is supported by relevant contributed case studies and short vignettes. Applied 'how to' sections will appeal to those who work in business and service planning." "This book will appeal to professionals working with geodemographics or neighbourhood data in marketing, retail planning, service delivery and the public sector. It will be an excellent introduction for upper-level undergraduate and Masters students taking geodemographics or related modules as part of degrees in GIS, Geography, Marketing or Business."--Jacket
Disease selection : the way disease changed the world by Roger Webber( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diseases have had more influence on us than we realize. They have taken a major role in making us humans and probably determine the way we run our lives. They emerged with us from our ancestral home in Africa, to spread to the rest of the planet. History is full of the great epidemics of plague, smallpox and anthrax, with the present catastrophe of HIV that is changing the demography of the world in a similar way to its predecessors. We survived because of our genetic variation and immune system and it will be this that will save us again. So fundamental has been the part that disease has played in the world that it has brought about change, just as much as has natural selection. Actually disease has been another force, sometimes acting with natural selection but often in opposition. It continues to have a far more profound effect on all of us than realized, selecting the course of the world just as much as nature has"--Provided by publisher

Communicable disease epidemiology and control : a global perspective by Roger Webber( )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second edition focuses on the epidemiology and control of infectious diseases common in tropical, developing and developed countries. It has 19 chapters. The first chapters (1-4) discuss the theory and control methods with practical help on how to implement them. Chapter 5 presents the different notification and health regulations. Chapters 6-17 describe the different aspects of infectious diseases classified according to transmission: water-washed, faecal-oral, foodborne, soilborne, waterborne, skin contact, airborne, body fluid contact, insectborne and zoonotic diseases. Chapter 18 discusses the new and potential diseases, and Chapter 19 presents a list of infectious diseases. The entire book has been revised and rearranged, and includes new sections on global warming, socioeconomic aspects, recent outbreaks that have emerged since the first edition and others that may become important in the future. This book will prove an essential tool for doctors, epidemiologists and those working in the control of infectious diseases, as well as providing a clear introduction for medical students, public health specialists and those involved in disease control

Simultaneous position measurements of protons and anti-protons in the Tevatron( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fermilab is nearing completion of an upgrade to the electronics of the Beam Position Monitor (BPM) system that measures the transverse position of the beams inside the Tevatron collider. A new feature in the upgraded system is the ability, when both protons and anti-protons are present in the Tevatron, to make simultaneous measurements of the closed orbit position of both beam species. This paper will present one of the methods for achieving the simultaneous measurement and will present results from commissioning data, which demonstrate that the system achieves its requirements
Using time separation of signals to obtain independent proton and antiproton beam position measurements around the Tevatron( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Independent position measurement of the counter-circulating proton and antiproton beams in the Tevatron, never supported by the original Tevatron Beam Position Monitor (BPM) system, presents a challenge to upgrading that system. This paper discusses the possibilities and complications of using time separation of proton and antiproton signals at the numerous BPM locations and for the dynamic Tevatron operating conditions. Results of measurements using one such method are presented

Cool-down acceleration of G-M cryocoolers with thermal oscillations passively damped by helium( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: 4 K Gifford-McMahon cryocoolers suffer from inherent temperature oscillations which can be a problem for certain attached electronic instrumentation. Sumitomo Heavy Industries has exploited the high volumetric specific heat of super-critical He to quell these oscillations (approx. 10 dB) by strongly thermally linking a separate vessel of He to the second stage; no significant thermal resistance is added between the payload and the working gas of the cryocooler. A noticeable effect of the helium damper is to increase the cool-down time of the second stage below 10 K. For the operation of niobium-based superconducting electronics (NbSCE), a common practice is to warm the circuits above the critical temperature (∼9 K) and then cool to the operating point in order to redistribute trapped magnetic fluxons, so for NbSCE users, the time to cool from 10 K is important. The gas in the helium damper is shared between a room-temperature buffer tank and the 2nd stage vessel, which are connected by a capillary tube. We show that the total cool-down time below 10 K can be substantially reduced by introducing a combination of thermal linkages between the cryocooler and the capillary tube and in-line relief valves, which control the He mass distribution between the warm canister and cold vessel. The time to reach operating temperature from the superconducting transition has been reduced to <25% of the time needed without these low-cost modifications
