Dictionary of Applied Math for Engineers and Scientists

Despite the seemingly close connections between mathematics and other scientific and engineering fields, practical explanations intelligible to those who are not primarily mathematicians are even more difficult to find. The Dictionary of Applied Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists fills that void. It contains authoritative yet accessible definitions of mathematical terms often encountered in other disciplines. There may be bigger dictionaries, more comprehensive dictionaries, and dictionaries that offer more detailed definitions, theorems, and proofs. But there is no other dictionary specifically designed and written for scientists and engineers whose understanding and ability to solve real-world problems work can depend upon the application of mathematics. Concise, comprehensible, and convenient, the Dictionary of Applied Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists is a practical lexicon that helps students and professionals alike use mathematical terminology correctly and fully understand the mathematical literature encountered in their fields.

Social Work, the Media and Public Relations (Routledge Revivals)

Over the past few decades, relationships between social workers and the media have become increasingly challenging. Social workers feel aggrieved by media reporting of their profession and believe that journalists lack sufficient knowledge and experience of the social services to report matters adequately and sensitively, whilst some journalists have urged social workers to adopt a more proactive public relations strategy. This book, first published in 1991, analyses the causes and consequences of the negative portrayal of social work within the media and considers various ways in which this image might be improved. The authors consider a variety of developments during the 1990s designed to redress imbalances in media reporting and present a more accurate picture of social workers and the people with whom they work. This title remains very relevant in light of the high profile cases related to the social service that continue to feature in the British press, and will be of particular value to students and researchers with an interest in the relationship between the media and social policy.

Government Public Relations

A Reader

Much maligned in the past as wasteful and self-serving, government public relations provides several distinct services that can be used to advance the substantive mission of an agency in ways that save money, time, and effort. In the same manner as budgeting, HR, strategic planning, and performance assessment, public relations must be included in the contemporary public administrator’s toolbox. Using unorthodox yet cost effective measures, public relations can increase the utilization of governmental goods and services, promote voluntary compliance with new laws, improve media relations, and strengthen the standing of the agency with the public at large. In short, public relations is public administration. Addressing the theory, practice, and context of government public relations, Government Public Relations: A Reader compiles contemporary writings from international sources to provide an understanding of the importance, value, and uses of public relations as tools to advance the goals of government. Each section begins with an introductory overview and short preview of the section topic. The end of each section provides additional reading and a list of discussion questions that can help identify key points. Beginning with an introduction to the general subject, the book focuses on the discrete purposes of public relations to make their benefit and application more tangible. Topics include media relations, public reporting, responsiveness, and outreach, as well as the integral role of PR in crisis management. The book stresses the “publicness” of government public relations as distinct from business PR and examines the increasing use of non-profit agencies to deliver government funded services. The last section summarizes the overall themes along with trends likely to influence the future of the field such as globalization and e-reporting. An extensive appendix consists of an annotated bibliography of the historical literature.

The Road for SEEM. A Reference Framework Towards a Single European Electronic Market

“Become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge based economy in the world by 2010” is the major objective of the Lisbon strategy for the European Community. The European Commission re-launched the Lisbon strategy in a new initiative called i2010 – a European Information Society for growth and employment, to promote a Single European Information Space (SEIS). The aim of this initiative is to promote a borderless European information space and establishing an internal market for electronic communications and digital services, to stimulate innovation through investment in research, to encourage the industrial application of ICT, and to make the European information society as inclusive and accessible as possible. SEEM (Single European Electronic Market) is a SEIS contributor, and its goal is to integrate electronic value chains, so that companies, organizations and individuals from different Member States can be linked without experiencing any access or interoperability problems. SEEM facilitates electronic transactions in business environments with appropriate legal aspects and regulations, with no national exclusions or special conditions prevailing. It will be affordable to all with an electronic work environment in which the networks of organizations that create added value products and services are supported by common tools and services towards an effective electronic market. This book presents the main results of the prospective study performed by the SEEMseed project, and includes contributions from more than 1400 experts in Europe and abroad. The Road for SEEM: A REFERENCE FRAMEWORK TOWARDS A SINGLE EUROPEAN ELECTRONIC MARKET will be of interest to managers and senior researchers in the area of ICT and business, to policy makers, and to ICT engineers and post-graduates.
