About M&C

This is the retail bookstore for Morgan & Claypool where you can purchase print books and individual eBooks. If you are looking for institutional access to our scalable digital libraries, click on the gray Institutional Users button to the right. We do things differently here. We began the “short book” revolution, and we’ve been the top provider ever since. Other publishers laughed…now they copy us. If you are looking for critical updates in COMPUTER & INFORMATION SCIENCE, ENGINEERING, LIFE SCIENCE, and PHYSICS but don’t want to be inundated with information you don’t need; this is the place for you. There are still some traditional books here (like the ACM Book series), but, when you revolutionize an industry, your mantra better remain steadfast. Short books…because everyone needs information, and everyone is pressed for time, always.

Sex and the Developing Brain, Second Edition
Margaret M. McCarthy
The brains of males and females, men and women, are different, that is a fact. What is debated is how different and how important are those differences. Sex differences in the brain are determined by genetics, hormones, and experience, which in humans includes culture, society, and parental and peer expectations...

Deep Learning for Computer Architects
Brandon Reagen, Robert Adolf, Paul Whatmough, Gu-Yeon Wei, David Brooks
Machine learning, and specifically deep learning, has been hugely disruptive in many fields of computer science. The success of deep learning techniques in solving notoriously difficult classification and regression problems has resulted in their rapid adoption in solving real-world problems...

Beyond Curie
Scott Calvin
In the 116 year history of the Nobel Prize in physics, only two women have won the award; Marie Curie (1903) and Maria Mayer (1963). During the sixty years between those awards, several women did work in physics of similar caliber including Cecilia Payne, Lise Meitner, and Chien-Shiung Wu...

Introduction to Quantitative Cell Biology
Wallace F. Marshall
For the past decade or more, much of cell biology research has been focused on determining the key molecules involved in different cellular processes, an analytical problem that has been amenable to biochemical and genetic approaches. Now, we face an integrative problem of understanding how all of these molecules work together to produce living cells, a challenge that requires using quantitative approaches to model the complex interactions within a cell, and testing those models with careful quantitative measurements...

Computerized Analysis of Mammographic Images for Detection and Characterization of Breast Cancer
Paola Casti, Arianna Mencattini, Marcello Salmeri, Rangaraj Rangayyan
The identification and interpretation of the signs of breast cancer in mammographic images from screening programs can be very difficult due to the subtle and diversified appearance of breast disease. This book presents new image processing and pattern recognition techniques for computer-aided detection and diagnosis of breast cancer in its various forms...

Spiral Structure in Galaxies
Marc S. Seigar
A spiral galaxy is a type of galaxy originally described by Edwin Hubble in his 1936 work The Realm of Nebulae and, as such, forms part of the Hubble sequence. Spiral galaxies consist of a flat, rotating disk containing stars, gas and dust, and a central concentration of stars known as the bulge...

Computational Prediction of Protein Complexes from Protein Interaction Networks
Sriganesh Srihari, Chern Han Yong, Limsoon Wong
Complexes of physically interacting proteins constitute fundamental functional units that drive almost all biological processes within cells. A faithful reconstruction of the entire set of protein complexes (the "complexosome") is therefore important not only to understand the composition of complexes but also the higher level functional organization within cells...
