    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme] is an excellent book presenting a very strong case for abandoning the acronym GMO. It will be extremely helpful to scholars and educators in developing countries who need to persuade their populace and politicians to adopt modern methods to reap the benefits of more nutritious foods and greatly improved yields."

Vibration in Mechanical Systems

This book introduces the physical background and basic concepts of vibration, mathematical modeling of linear vibrations in discrete and continuous mechanical systems and offers theoretical solutions for vibration problems, and provides dynamical analysis of vibration, engineering applications of vibration.

Vibration phenomena exist widely in nature and engineering, and vibration analysis and computation are of important significance in science and in technology. In recent years, great progress has been made in vibration analysis and computation for increasingly complex systems by advances in technology. Therefore, the contents of courses on vibration should be improved and strengthened to meet the requirement of today’s technology education. As an introductory textbook for undergraduate students, this book presents the physical background, mathematical modeling, analytical solutions, mechanical analysis on linear vibrations in both discrete-time and continuous-time systems, as well as some typical examples in engineering application.

Cho W. S. To was Professor of Mechanical and Material Engineering at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln (UNL), USA. He was awarded a PhD from the University of Southampton, England, as a research fellow at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR). He was a university research fellow on the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. He was appointed the lifetime position of Advisor Professor of the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He taught at the University of Western Ontario and University of Calgary. He was an ASME fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and member of the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Dr To’s research interests include sound and vibration studies, solid and computational mechanics, and system dynamics and controls.

Qishao Lu is a professor at the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA). He was Chair of the Committee of General Mechanics, CSTAM and Committee of Nonlinear Oscillation, CSVE, Vice Chief-Editor of Acta Mechanics Sinica and the Journal of Dynamics and Control, and won the National Natural Science Award of China (2nd class) in 2003.
