Navigate the complexities of biochemical thermodynamics with Mathematica(r)<br> <br> Chemical reactions are studied under the constraints of constant temperature and constant pressure; biochemical reactions are studied under the additional constraints of pH and, perhaps, pMg or free concentrations of other metal ions. As more intensive variables are specified, more thermodynamic properties of a system are defined, and the equations that represent thermodynamic properties as a function of independent variables become more complicated.<br> <br> This sequel to Robert Alberty's popular Thermodynamics of Biochemical Reactions describes how researchers will find Mathematica(r) a simple and elegant tool, which makes it possible to perform complex calculations that would previously have been impractical. Biochemical Thermodynamics: Applications of Mathematica(r) provides a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of biochemical thermodynamics using Mathematica(r) to practically resolve thermodynamic issues.<br> <br> Topics covered include:<br> * Thermodynamics of the dissociation of weak acids<br> * Apparent equilibrium constants<br> * Biochemical reactions at specified temperatures and various pHs<br> * Uses of matrices in biochemical thermodynamics<br> * Oxidoreductase, transferase, hydrolase, and lyase reactions<br> * Reactions at 298.15K<br> * Thermodynamics of the binding of ligands by proteins<br> * Calorimetry of biochemical reactions<br> <br> Because Mathematica(r) allows the intermingling of text and calculations, this book has been written in Mathematica(r) and includes a CD-ROM containing the entire book along with macros that help scientists and engineers solve their particular problems.
A collection of unconventional voices, BEYOND ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY IN UNITED STATES TAX LAW articulates alternative approaches to traditional economic analysis that provide a fuller understanding of tax law. Twelve original essays shed new light on classical tax theory by demonstrating that efficiency should not be the sole mechanism for examining the merits of the U.S. tax system. Factors such as race, gender, ethics, fairness, social justice, and political theory, to name a few should play a vital role in the design of the tax system. Reliance upon the myth that markets function solely by reference to efficiency concerns can be expected to result in a poorly functioning tax regime.
Covering a broad range of topics including healthcare, housing, theories of justice, wealth transfer taxation, taxation as regulation, international taxation, state and local taxation, retirement security, and the charitable tax exemption this trail-blazing anthology scrutinizes the tax code along many neglected lines of analysis, including fairness, redistribution, organizational behavior and hierarchy, and social justice.
