Overview

After gaining degrees in physics and maths, I worked for many years in IT development. I retrained in proofreading and editing over 8 years ago, and now I am a full-time professional copy-editor. I work on a broad range of subjects, especially physical sciences, maths, engineering, computer science and technology in various varieties of English. I have lots of experience with non-native English.

I have worked on titles for publishers such as OUP, CUP, Woodhead, Chandos, Kognity, Educational Company of Ireland and Folens. I mainly edit for journals, such as “Mathematics Today”, “Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society”, “Trials”, “BMC Medicine”, “Science China Information Sciences” and many others.

The Design and Statistical Analysis of Animal Experiments

Dr Simon T. Bate, Dr Robin A. Clark

Written for animal researchers, this book provides a comprehensive guide to the design and statistical analysis of animal experiments. It has long been recognised that the proper implementation of these techniques helps reduce the number of animals needed. By using real-life examples to make them more accessible, this book explains the statistical tools employed by practitioners. A wide range ... read more

Nuclear Fuel Cycle Science and Engineering (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy)

The nuclear fuel cycle is characterised by the wide range of scientific disciplines and technologies it employs. The development of ever more integrated processes across the many stages of the nuclear fuel cycle therefore confronts plant manufacturers and operators with formidable challenges. Nuclear fuel cycle science and engineering describes both the key features of the complete nuclear fue... read more

Spectral Analysis of Relativistic Operators

A A Balinsky

Over the last decade, there has been considerable interest and progress in determining the spectral properties of various operators that take relativistic effects into account, with important implications for mathematics and physics. Difficulties are encountered in many-particle problems due to the lack of semiboundedness of the Dirac operator, and this has led to the investigation of operator... read more

Modeling Ordered Choices: A Primer

William H. Greene, David A. Hensher

It is increasingly common for analysts to seek out the opinions of individuals and organizations using attitudinal scales such as degree of satisfaction or importance attached to an issue. Examples include levels of obesity, seriousness of a health condition, attitudes towards service levels, opinions on products, voting intentions, and the degree of clarity of contracts. Ordered choice models... read more

Navier-Stokes Equations in Planar Domains

Matania Ben-Artzi, Jean-Pierre Croisille, Dalia Fishelov

This volume deals with the classical Navier-Stokes system of equations governing the planar flow of incompressible, viscid fluid. It is a first-of-its-kind book, devoted to all aspects of the study of such flows, ranging from theoretical to numerical, including detailed accounts of classical test problems such as "driven cavity" and "double-driven cavity". A comprehensive treatment of the math... read more
