This new third edition of A Bibliography of Medical and Biomedical Biography details readily available sources of information in the English language on significant figures in the history of medicine and the biomedical sciences. Archival collections are also noted and a representative selection of general and specialized histories is included. This new edition features more than 1300 new entries, plus updates and amendments to previous entries. Also included, as far as possible, are the names of individuals recorded in Morton and Moore's Chronology of Medicine and Related Sciences (Ashgate, 1997). This bibliography remains an essential guide to the life and works of individuals who have contributed to the development of medicine and the biomedical sciences.
A lively indictment of American culture's pervasive use of the psychotherapeutic metaphor to explain behaviours, a habit that has crossed the Atlantic in recent years, arguing that psychotherapy and excessive individualism has only ensured the continuance of social problems.
After two decades of research and development, elliptic curve cryptography now has widespread exposure and acceptance. Industry, banking, and government standards are in place to facilitate extensive deployment of this efficient public-key mechanism.
Anchored by a comprehensive treatment of the practical aspects of elliptic curve cryptography (ECC), this guide explains the basic mathematics, describes state-of-the-art implementation methods, and presents standardized protocols for public-key encryption, digital signatures, and key establishment. In addition, the book addresses some issues that arise in software and hardware implementation, as well as side-channel attacks and countermeasures. Readers receive the theoretical fundamentals as an underpinning for a wealth of practical and accessible knowledge about efficient application.
* Breadth of coverage and unified, integrated approach to elliptic curve cryptosystems
* Describes important industry and government protocols, such as the FIPS 186-2 standard from the U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology
* Provides full exposition on techniques for efficiently implementing finite-field and elliptic curve arithmetic
