Property testing algorithms are ultra"-efficient algorithms that decide whether a given object (e.g., a graph) has a certain property (e.g., bipartiteness), or is significantly different from any object that has the property. To this end property testing algorithms are given the ability to perform (local) queries to the input, though the decisions they need to make usually concern properties with a global nature. In the last two decades, property testing algorithms have been designed for many types of objects and properties, amongst them, graph properties, algebraic properties, geometric properties, and more. In this article we survey results in property testing, where our emphasis is on common analysis and algorithmic techniques. Among the techniques surveyed are the following: a) The self-correcting approach, which was mainly applied in the study of property testing of algebraic properties; b) The enforce and test approach, which was applied quite extensively in the analysis of algorithms for testing graph properties (in the dense-graphs model), as well as in other contexts; c) Szemeredi's Regularity Lemma, which plays a very important role in the analysis of algorithms for testing graph properties (in the dense-graphs model); d) The approach of Testing by implicit learning, which implies efficient testability of membership in many functions classes. e) Algorithmic techniques for testing properties of sparse graphs, which include local search and random walks.

The 5th Symposium on Stochastic Algorithms, Foundations and Applications (SAGA 2009) took place during October 26–28, 2009, at Hokkaido University, Sapporo(Japan).ThesymposiumwasorganizedbytheDivisionofComputerS- ence,GraduateSchoolofComputerScienceandTechnology,HokkaidoUniversity. It o?ered the opportunity to present original research on the design and analysis of randomized algorithms, random combinatorialstructures, implem- tation, experimental evaluation and real-world application of stochastic al- rithms/heuristics. In particular, the focus of the SAGA symposia series is on investigating the power of randomization in algorithms, and on the theory of stochastic processes especially within realistic scenarios and applications. Thus, the scope ofthe symposiumrangesfromthe study oftheoreticalfundamentals of randomizedcomputationtoexperimentalinvestigationsonalgorithms/heuristics and related stochastic processes. The SAGA symposium series is a biennial meeting. Previous SAGA s- posiatookplaceinBerlin,Germany(2001,LNCSvol.2264),Hat?eld,UK(2003, LNCS vol. 2827), Moscow, Russia (2005, LNCS vol. 3777), and Zur ¨ ich, Switz- land (2007, LNCS vol. 4665). This year 22 submissions were received, and the Program Committee selected 15 submissions for presentation. All papers were evaluated by at least three members of the ProgramCommittee, partly with the assistance of subreferees. The present volume contains the texts of the 15 papers presented at SAGA 2009, divided into groups of papers on learning, graphs, testing, optimization, and caching as well as on stochastic algorithms in bioinformatics.

The research and development of nanofibers has gained much prominence in recent years due to the heightened awareness of its potential applications in the medical, engineering and defense fields. Among the most successful methods for producing nanofibers is the electrospinning process. In this timely book, the areas of electrospinning and nanofibers are covered for the first time in a single volume. The book can be broadly divided into two parts: the first comprises descriptions of the electrospinning process and modeling to obtain nanofibers while the second describes the characteristics and applications of nanofibers. The material is aimed at both newcomers and experienced researchers in the area.

Continuing the tradition of its previous editions, the third edition of Introduction to Polymer Chemistry provides a well-rounded presentation of the principles and applications of natural, synthetic, inorganic, and organic polymers. With an emphasis on the environment and green chemistry and materials, this third edition offers detailed coverage of natural and synthetic giant molecules, inorganic and organic polymers, biomacromolecules, elastomers, adhesives, coatings, fibers, plastics, blends, caulks, composites, and ceramics. Using simple fundamentals, the book demonstrates how the basic principles of one polymer group can be applied to all of the other groups. It covers reactivities, synthesis and polymerization reactions, techniques for characterization and analysis, energy absorption and thermal conductivity, physical and optical properties, and practical applications. This edition addresses environmental concerns and green polymeric materials, including biodegradable polymers and microorganisms for synthesizing materials. Case studies woven within the text illustrate various developments and the societal and scientific contexts in which these changes occurred. Now including new material on environmental science, Introduction to Polymer Chemistry, Third Edition remains the premier book for understanding the behavior of polymers. Building on undergraduate work in foundational courses, the text fulfills the American Chemical Society Committee on Professional Training (ACS CPT) in-depth course requirement.
