Interior design is curently one of the most innovative disciplines of architecture. Contemporary architects are aware that there is a need for multi-functional spaces and the same time highly defined spaces that are pleasant and calm and make their inhabitants feel comfortable. The search for bold and completely original forms that are adapted to the lifestyle of their inhabitants is often a factor that leads to experimentation and creativity with forms and materials.
Interior design is currently one of the most innovative disciplines of architecture. Contemporary architects are aware that there is a need for multi-functional and polyvalent spaces and at the same time highly defined spaces that are pleasant and calm and make their inhabitants feel comfortable. The search for bold and completely original forms that are adapted to the lifestyle of their inhabitants is often a factor that leads to experimentation and creativity with forms and materials. In the works of architects such as Takao Shiotsuka, Gracia Studio, Jay Kammen and Simone Micheli presented in this volume - including floor plans, technical specifications, materials used and a commentary on each project - we find stimulating answers, ingenious solutions, unexpected points of view and proposals that will certainly influence the concept of architectural interiors.

Applications of frames in different sciences encouraged the author to present some extensions of frames in both Hilbert and Banach spaces. Some years ago, Ole Christensen published two great books on frame theory. His books provide the fundamental theorems and properties of frames in Hilbert spaces. The main aim of this book is to provide the new applications of frames, have been motivating the existence of some extensions and generalizations of frames. During the past few years, frames have become increasingly popular and several explicate contractions and applications motivated the researchers for introducing some new concepts that originally coming from frame theory, like continuous frames, fusion frames, g-frames, continuous g-frames and etc.
The complex analysis is one of the classical branches of mathematics and has its roots in the XVIII century. Two important directions of complex analysis are the theory of conformal representations and the geometric theory of analytic functions. Applications and extensions of these theories have been developed in numerous fields, including differential equations, harmonic functions, meromorphic functions, integral operators, Banach spaces and others. This book, pertaining to the geometric function theory, provides several new classes of meromorphic functions, some new integral operators and preserving properties results, regarding the new introduced operators. These new classes are extensions of the well-known starlike, convex and close-to-convex classes. After a review of some basic concepts and standard results, related to the subordination and superordination, sandwich-type results are obtained, using the generalized Briot-Bouquet differential subordinations and superordinations. The book is useful for mathematicians, physicists, engineers, students, researches and other specialists who want to have a good training in the field of geometric function theory.
Until recently, recognition to urban forestry and parks were limited in most developing countries. There was little or no private participation in developing parks, green and open-spaces. However there is a great deal of realization that with out having safer and environmentally sound green open spaces, health and other urban problems will be perpetuated. The great hopes pinned on the development of urban green open-spaces in developing countries have been the creation of employment, increasing revenue from tourist attractions and making the urban center viable for living. There are some countries which went a little in this turn. The Introduction of the Economic value of Urban green open-spaces will help private firms to participate in developing and delivering to the increased needs of recreational sites. This book will give an insight about how one can value green open-spaces as well as the costs and benefits of developing green open-spaces in in a defined scenario.

Great Breads – Home–Baked Favorites from Europe, The British Isles & North America (Paper)
This qualitative case study focuses on 10 Chinese late-arriving ELL adolescents, and examines their cross-trajectory experiences of language use in their daily lives and their language identities in Canada. Findings showed that this group’s language use in daily life is full of conflicts, negotiation and consolidation, not only at school as a usual space of contested language use, but also at home, with peers and in other spaces. At school, social division existed both in and out of class, yet such social division was not merely due to the ELLs’ reluctance to integrate. The participants positioned themselves differently in English Literature courses and core classes in accordance with their perceived proficiency. Home, generally regarded as a traditionally stable space of language practice, became another site of complex dynamics. Peer networks also emerged as embodying similar complications. In addition to racial and ethnic factors, age on arrival and length of residence played a significant role in social interaction, impacting both same-ethnic and cross-ethnic peer networks. The author suggests a theoretical framework for teachers, schools, parents, and researchers.
