An evaluation of policy related research : reviews and critical discussions of policy-related research in the field of police protection by Saul I Gass( Book )
7 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document is an effort to make a significant body of policy related research on police protection more accessible to and usable by policy makers and to provide a basis for future research projects. Approximately 200 research items are abstracted, arranged by broad policy categories, and reviewed for internal and external validity. These discussions and evaluations are presented for the following policy areas -- administration and managements, effectiveness and evaluation, crime prevention -- architecture and crime statistics, police technology, resource allocation, patrol operations patrol beat design, emergency response and traffic, personnel selection, evaluation and training, and police-community relations. The report identifies three major criticisms that apply to many law enforcement research endeavors. These are -- a lack of commitment to research by policy makers, a failure to articulate the goals and objectives of police protection, and the use of improper study designs and analytic methods. To counteract these criticisms, material describing recommended research methodologies is included. Through a survey of police chiefs, commissioners and policy planners, the following research topics were identified as being especially important and worthy of further research -- the reduction of police response time, police computerized information systems, measuring the effectiveness of crime prevention programs, evaluation of changes in crime rates and other measures of police effectiveness, standards for promotion of police officers, and surveys of public attitudes toward police, including victimization surveys

Nuclear diagnostic for fast alpha particles by L. R Grisham( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We investigate the possibility of seeding a fusion plasma with nuclei which can undergo nuclear reactions with energetic alpha particles to produce product nuclei which are radioactive. If a fraction of these product nuclei can be collected and measured, one can obtain information about the presence of fast alpha particles. It appears that a feasible diagnostic could be based upon the ¹°B(.cap alpha., n)¹³N reaction

Research on Plasma Simulation by Computer for Studies of Collisionless Shocks and Plasma Turbulence ( Book )
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The research dealt with the development of numerical techniques for simulating plasmas and the application of these techniques to solve important problems on the nonlinear and turbulent behavior of plasmas. A number of significant problems were solved on the anomalous absorption of intense radiation by plasma, and on the anomalous diffusion of plasma across a magnetic field. (Author)
