From HIV to influenza, the battle between infectious agents and the immune system is at the heart of disease. Knowledge of how and why parasites vary to escape recognition by the immune system is central to vaccine design, the control of epidemics, and our fundamental understanding of parasite ecology and evolution. As the first comprehensive synthesis of parasite variation at the molecular, population, and evolutionary levels, this book is essential reading for students and researchers throughout biology and biomedicine.The author uses an evolutionary perspective to meld the terms and finding

The small East Texas town of Coreyville is shaken by brutal murders and kidnappings, striking too close to home for Greg Tenorly. And the only witness is a mentally ill neighbor whose remarks are rejected by the police as gibberish. But Greg listens carefully to the man’s seemingly incoherent statements, and later realizes that they just might contain enough clues to point him in the direction of the killer. But his investigation leads him into a hornet’s nest of dark secrets, old grudges, jealousy, and greed. Now, caught in the crossfire between two families, Greg’s life

In the area of combinatorial identities computers are able to find very elegant proofs of difficult theorems unassisted by human intervention. This autonomy means that not only is it possible to use a PC to find such a proof, but also the proof can be checked easily. This book shows how several recently developed computer algorithms can master the difficult job of simplifying complex summations and if there is no such simplification they will prove this to be the case. The authors present the underlying mathematical theory of these methods, the principle theorems and proofs, and include a pack

Greg Tenorly lives a quiet and lonely life in a small East Texas town, until he is selected as a juror for a murder trial. A beautiful, mysterious redhead befriends him, and seems to have a romantic interest. But is she merely using him to influence the outcome of the trial? By the end of the first week, three people connected with the case are dead, and Greg is beginning to fear for his own life. He is now convinced that a powerful Dallas attorney is directing the murder spree in his little town. But why? He is determined to find out. But his investigation just might earn him a spot at th
