Forensic Ballistics in Court: Interpretation and Presentation of Firearms Evidence is an accessible introduction to firearms and ballistics evidence and how this is analysed and presented as evidence in a court of law. The book contains little or no coverage of the history and development of weapons, ammunition and forensic technologies but rather approaches the subject in terms of the realities of case work. Opening with a clear explanation of the correct nomenclature for various weapon types and their parts, illustrations help to clarify the names of the various components of these weapons. Ammunition is also extensively covered, again with annotated illustrations. Basic external and terminal ballistics, wounding capabilities are likewise covered to give an overview of the subject. The book is not intended to provide a detailed examination of all aspects of firearms and ballistics and should the reader need more detail on the subject reference is made to 'The Handbook of Firearms and Ballistics' also authored by Brian Heard. A key aspect of the book covers the theory and philosophy behind striation matches and the associated statistics, how positive matches should be peer reviewed and the importance accreditation has on this subject. Gunshot residue formation and identification and the various methods used in its analysis are reviewed in depth. This includes a critical examination of the pros and cons of each type of examination and the evidential weight which can be applied to each method. This type of analysis, due to the extremely small particles involved, is very susceptible to contamination, both environmental and cross contamination from police officers or other investigating agencies e.g. during exhibit photography or the taking of fingerprints. As the main thrust of the book is directed towards the interpretation and assessment of the weight of evidence presented at court this will take up the major portion of the book. There will be considerable reliance on case work that the author has dealt with over the past 40 years to illustrate the various pitfalls of placing too much reliance on the face value of the various types of evidence. The majority of evidence presented at court can be interpreted in various ways and each and every one should be explored before deciding which is the more viable. Key Differences between the proposed book and the Handbook for Firearms and Ballistics: History of firearms, ammunition, propellant and primer will not be included in this book- this is covered in detail in the Handbook. Information on internal and external ballistics and headstamps will not be covered as in the Handbook. Instead there will be large sections to assist the lawyer when interpreting such evidence. Some of these areas follow: Evidence from crime scene investigations, Ricochet analysis, The results of stria comparisons submitted by the forensic expert, Range of fire estimations, A weapons potential for accidental discharge Identification of bullet entry/exit holes. Missile penetration potential The 'lethality' of a weapon/ammunition combination Determination of when the weapon was last fired Examination as to the viability of ammunition Determining the age and origin of ammunition Whether recovered cartridge cases were from blank or live ammunition Determining the age of a weapon (i.e. can it be considered to be an antique) Lethality of air, gas and spring guns Convertability of toy, replica and blank firing weapons into firearms The importance of witness and accused statements and their interpretation in relation to the investigation under review will also be examined. This is not covered in the Handbook of Firearms and Ballistics.

Forensic Medicine encompasses all areas in which medicine and law interact. This book covers diverse aspects of forensic medicine including forensic pathology, traumatology and violent death, sudden and unexpected death, clinical forensic medicine, toxicology, traffic medicine, identification, haemogenetics and medical law. A knowledge of all these subdisciplines is necessary in order to solve routine as well as more unusual cases. Taking a comprehensive approach the book m.oves beyond a focus on forensic pathology to include clinical forensic medicine and forensic toxicology. All aspects of forensic medicine are covered to meet the specialist needs of daily casework. Aspects of routine analysis and quality control are addressed in each chapter. The book provides coverage of the latest developments in forensic molecular biology, forensic toxicology, molecular pathology and immunohistochemistry. A must-have reference for every specialist in the field this book is set to become the bench-mark for the international forensic medical community.

Ballistik ist jene Wissenschaft, welche die gesamten physikalischen Erschein- gen und die Bewegung eines geworfenen Körpers (Geschosses) behandelt. Sie wird je nach dem Umfeld, worin Geschossbewegung stattfindet, in verschiedene Teilgebiete unterteilt: Die Innenballistik beschäftigt sich mit den Vorgängen rund um die Beschl- nigung des Geschosses innerhalb der Waffe. Ihre Zuständigkeit endet, sobald das Geschoss die Waffe verlässt. Auch unmittelbar danach kann die Waffe den - schossflug noch beeinträchtigen, z. B. durch Schwingungen oder nachfolgende Gase, welche zunächst das Geschoss überholen. Für diesen Teil der Geschoss- wegung ist die sogenannte Abgangsballistik zuständig. Hat das Geschoss den Einflussbereich der Waffe vollständig verlassen, so folgt es während seines Fluges bis zum Ziel den Gesetzmäßigkeiten der Außenballistik. In dieses Gebiet fällt die Bestimmung des örtlichen und zeitlichen Verlaufs der Flugbahn, der Geschwindigkeit und der Eigenbewegung des Geschosses um s- nen Schwerpunkt, unter Berücksichtigung aller auf das Geschoss einwirkenden Kräfte. Trifft das Geschoss auf ein Objekt auf und dringt in dieses ein, so werden die dabei auftretenden Gesetzmäßigkeiten durch die Endballistik untersucht. Handelt es sich beim getroffenen Objekt um einen Menschen oder ein Tier, bezeichnet man das betreffende Wissensgebiet mit Wundballistik.

In den Bachelor-Studiengängen der Mathematik steht für die Komplexe Analysis (Funktionentheorie) oft nur eine einsemestrige 2-stündige Vorlesung zur Verfügung. Dieses Buch eignet sich als Grundlage für eine solche Vorlesung im 2. Studienjahr. Mit einer guten thematischen Auswahl, vielen Beispielen und ausführlichen Erläuterungen gibt dieses Buch eine Darstellung der Komplexen Analysis, die genau die Grundlagen und den wesentlichen Kernbestand dieses Gebietes enthält. Das Buch bietet über diese Grundausbildung hinaus weiteres Lehrmaterial als Ergänzung, sodass es auch für eine 3- oder 4 –stündige Vorlesung geeignet ist. Je nach Hörerkreis kann der Stoff unterschiedlich erweitert werden. So wurden für den „Bachelor Lehramt“ die geometrischen Aspekte der Komplexen Analysis besonders herausgearbeitet.

Technology has become increasingly important to both the function and our understanding of the justice process. Many forms of criminal behaviour are highly dependent upon technology, and crime control has become a predominantly technologically driven process – one where ‘traditional’ technological aids such as fingerprinting or blood sample analysis are supplemented by a dizzying array of tools and techniques including surveillance devices and DNA profiling. This book offers the first comprehensive and holistic overview of global research on technology, crime and justice. It is divided into five parts, each corresponding with the key stages of the offending and justice process: Part I addresses the current conceptual understanding of technology within academia and the criminal justice system; Part II gives a comprehensive overview of the current relations between technology and criminal behaviour; Part III explores the current technologies within crime control and the ways in which technology underpins contemporary formal and informal social control; Part IV sets out some of the fundamental impacts technology is now having upon the judicial process; Part V reveals the emerging technologies for crime, control and justice and considers the extent to which new technology can be effectively regulated. This landmark collection will be essential reading for academics, students and theorists within criminology, sociology, law, engineering and technology, and computer science, as well as practitioners and professionals working within and around the criminal justice system.
