The primary aim of this monograph is to provide a systematic state-of-the-art summary of the light scattering of bioparticles, including a brief consideration of analytical and numerical methods for computing electromagnetic scattering by single particles, a detailed discussion of the instrumental approach used in measurement of light scattering, an analysis of the methods used in solution of the inverse light scattering problem, and an introduction of the results dealing with practical analysis of biosamples.
Considering the widespread need for this information in optics, remote sensing, engineering, medicine, and biology, the book is useful to many graduate students, scientists, and engineers working on various aspects of electromagnetic scattering and its applications.
There is a growing body of historical literature on the importance of John Owen. Ryan M. McGraw seeks to reassess Owen's theology in light of the way in which he connected his trinitarian piety to his views of public worship. McGraw argues that Owen's teaching on communion with God as triune was the foundation of his views of public worship and that he regarded public worship as the highest expression of communion with the triune God. These themes not only highlight Owen's context as a Reformed orthodox theologian, but the distinctive influence of English Puritanism on his theological emphases. The connection between his practical trinitarianism and public worship runs through the course of his writings and every major area of his theology. These include the nature of theology, the knowledge of God, the doctrine of the Trinity, public worship, spiritual affections, apostasy, covenant theology, ecclesiology, and Christology. This work treats these themes in Owen's thought and shows how they intersect and are intertwined with the Trinity and public worship. In addition, this book provides a detailed exposition of the parts of Reformed worship. While other works have treated the centrality of his trinitarianism in his theology, few have acknowledged the importance of public worship in his thinking. This research concludes that communion with God in public worship was integral to Owen's practical trinitarian theology.
