In the last couple of decades, the field of biomaterials science and tissue engineering is at the frontier of research and innovation, considering the number of scientific discoveries and their potential impact in treating human diseases. This topical area has been the focus of this textbook.
The majority of IT projects necessitate the incorporation of domain knowledge into working software. This knowledge needs to be consistently managed across the project’s activities and outputs. This book assesses how two well-known software development methodologies – Waterfall and Agile – attempt to meet this challenge.
An alternative model, the Project Knowledge Model (PKM), is put forward. The model scopes the knowledge relevant to the project into a specified number of data points assisting in its digitisation. It establishes a connection between enterprise knowledge and project knowledge for continuous improvement and accelerated project delivery. It can assist existing methodologies in managing knowledge better and has been further developed into a new methodology: Knowledge Driven Development (KDD).
The primary goal of this text book is that any student (beginner), even one who has never heard of the subject, should be able to learn what ultrafast spectroscopy is, why optics related to the subject requires special attention, how to use the basic ideas of the subject in laboratory-based ultrafast spectroscopy experiments, and how to interpret the experimental observations. The level of mathematics is suitably selected in the book so that any student with basic knowledge of algebra, differentiation and integration would comfortably go through the book. As chemists often tend to see the physical picture of a mathematical formula, significant discussion on the meaning of mathematical expressions used in the text is included.

IIScPress publishes some books on its own and co-publishes other books in partnership with other publishers. Several books were published in collaboration with World Scientific Publishing Company (WSPC)from 2008 and 2013. WSPC was established in 1981. It is a leading publishing company in science, technology, and medicine, with its world headquarters in Singapore.
In 2013, IIScPress signed a co-publishing agreement with Cambridge University Press (CUP). CUP, established in 1584, is the world’s oldest publisher and the second largest university press. It publishes about 2500 books and 200 journals every year. See the following link for information about collaborative agreement between IIScPress and CUP.
IIScPress invites authors from India and abroad to explore publishing with us.
Its office is in the Archives and Publications Cell (APC) of IISc. A committee appointed by the Director of the IISc looks after various aspects of the IIScPress. At present, the following are the members of the IIScPress committee.
