Learn the business thinking behind financial modeling and execute what you know effectively using Microsoft Excel. Many believe that sales and profitability projections shown in financial models are the keys to success in attracting investors. The truth is that investors will come up with their own projections.

If the investor is satiated, the entrepreneur has successfully demonstrated a complete understanding of the business side of the enterprise. Pro Excel Financial Modeling provides the keys necessary to learn this thinking and to build the models that will illustrate it. Step-by-step approach to developing financial models in Excel Extensive case studies and Excel templates provided
We all know that today´s architectural design has moved from the sketchpad to the screenthe era of the Mayline and the drafting board now seems downright Paleolithicbut techniques for using the computer not just as a tool for rendering but as a generative instrument remain woefully unexplored. In Tooling, the latest installment in our renowned Pamphlet Architecture series, the technologically progressive young firm Aranda/Lasch illustrates how advanced computational methods and algorithmic codes can be used to foster architectural design. Tooling explores patterns generated by computer codes that in turn create an organizational template assembling projects. By openly sharing these codes, the authors seek to foster further investigation into their methods, allowing other architects to model and evolve more critical and insightful geometries and patterns.

With thoughtful attention given to the entire cycle of human life, Bill Plotkin´s guide helps readers create a more fulfilling existence through attunement to nature. At once a parenting primer and a model for self-improvement, ´´Nature and the Human Soul´´ illustrates how great changes in personal culture can be had when people allow themselves and their children to fully engage with the world. The book creates and defines five stages of a human life -- Innocent, Explorer, Societal Entrepreneur and Wanderer, Soul Apprentice and Artisan, and Master and Sage -- and offers insight as to how readers can realize their greatest potential, whatever stage they may be in. Told in meditative prose and featuring many moving anecdotes, this book truly builds a template for a more holistic and engaged life through the connection to nature many have been missing.
This book focuses on motions of incompressible ?uids of a freely moving surface being in?uenced by both the Earth´s rotation and density strati?cation. In contrast to traditional textbooks in the ?eld of geophysical ?uid dynamics, such as those by by Cushman-Roisin (1994) and Gill (1982), this book uses the method of proce- oriented hydrodynamic modelling to illustrate a rich variety of ?uid phenomena. To this end, the reader can adopt the model codes, found on the Springer server accompanying this book, to reproduce most graphs of this book and, even better, to create animation movies. The reader can also employ the codes as templates for own independent studies. This can be done by a lay person as a hobby activity, undergraduate or postgraduate students as part of their education, or professional scientists as part of research. Exercises of this book are run with open-source software that can be freely downloaded from the Internet. This includes the FORTRAN 95 compiler ´´G95´´ used for execution of model simulations, the data visualisation program ´´SciLab´´, and ´´ImageMagick´´ for the creation of graphs and GIF animations, which can be watched with most Internet browsers.
