From Remedy Entertainment, the masters of cinematic action games such as Max Payne and Alan Wake, comes a gripping novelization of this time-amplified suspenseful blockbuster. The Quantum Break experience is part game, part show—where decisions in one dramatically affect the other. Both experiences share the same incredible cast of actors who have played leading roles in Lost, X-Men, Game of Thrones and more. The novel, Quantum Break: Zero State, is the story of the game’s hero, Jack Joyce, who, with his newly gained superpowers, fights the nefarious Monarch corporation to stop the end of time. Epic moments of destruction, frozen in chaotic “time stutters,” become playgrounds for intense combat and gripping story. The novel greatly expands on the game’s narrative, offering intriguing new timelines and characters to explore! At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

This book presents several recent advances on Evolutionary Computation, specially evolution-based optimization methods and hybrid algorithms for several applications, from optimization and learning to pattern recognition and bioinformatics. This book also presents new algorithms based on several analogies and metafores, where one of them is based on philosophy, specifically on the philosophy of praxis and dialectics. In this book it is also presented interesting applications on bioinformatics, specially the use of particle swarms to discover gene expression patterns in DNA microarrays. Therefore, this book features representative work on the field of evolutionary computation and applied sciences. The intended audience is graduate, undergraduate, researchers, and anyone who wishes to become familiar with the latest research work on this field.
With this fourth edition, accountants will acquire a practical set of tools and the confidence they need to use them effectively in making business decisions. It better reflects a more conceptual and decision-making approach to the material. The authors follow a "macro- to micro-" strategy by starting with a discussion of real financial statements first, rather than starting with the Accounting Cycle. The objective is to establish how a financial statement communicates the financing, investing, and operating activities of a business to users of accounting information. This motivates accountants by grounding the discussion in the real world, showing them the relevance of the topics covered to their careers.
