This work confronts the question of geometric processes of derivation, specifically the derivation of affine planes - keying in on construction techniques and types of transformations in which lines of a newly-created plane can be understood as subplanes of the original plane. The book provides a...

While in the late 1970s and early 1980s health compliance research on adults represented a vigorous field of study, a marked decline of interest on the topic set in during the last part of the 1980s. By contrast, research on health compliance involving pediatric populations was less popular during...
