While the desire to start a business has long been a pillar of the American dream, the reality is that many entrepreneurs begin their businesses with no business training; and, sadly, many fall victim to barely being able to make the business work (or even business failure) due to a lack of business knowledge and skills. Of course, knowing business basics before starting the business would be the best approach, but what about those business owners who have already begun their ventures? For those wanting to start businesses as well as those who already have, this book will seek to serve as an executive guide that will concisely fill in the gaps in business knowledge that are essential to making a business successful. The book will focus on five key areas that a business owner needs to understand, in order to effectively manage the venture. Those areas are: Strategic planning; Entrepreneurial finance; Entrepreneurial marketing; Cash flow management; and, Cost control. The book will also include brief bonus coverage of important topics such as break-even analysis, legal structures, and intellectual property.
Hyperbolic geometry is an essential part of theoretical astrophysics and cosmology. Besides specialists of these domains, many specialists of new domains start to show a growing interest both to hyperbolic geometry and to cellular automata. This is especially the case in biology and computer science. This book gives the reader a deep and efficient introduction to an algorithmic approach to hyperbolic geometry. It focuses the attention on the possibilities to obtain in this frame the power of computing everything a computer can compute, that is to say: universality. The minimal ways to get universality are investigated in a large family of tilings of the hyperbolic plane. In several cases the best results are obtained.In all cases, the results are close to the theoretical best values. This gives rise to fantastic illustrations: the results are jewels in all meanings of the word. ------------------------ Maurice MARGENSTERN is professor emeritus at the University of Lorraine, he is a member of LITA, the research unit of computer science in the campus of Metz of this university. Professor Margenstern is amongst top world experts in theory of computation, mathematical machines and geometry. He is a pioneer in cellular automata in hyperbolic spaces.
