What does it take to build an iPhone app with stunning 3D graphics? This book will show you how to apply OpenGL graphics programming techniques to any device running the iPhone OS -- including the iPad and iPod Touch -- with no iPhone development or 3D graphics experience required. iPhone 3D Programming provides clear step-by-step instructions, as well as lots of practical advice, for using the iPhone SDK and OpenGL. You'll build several graphics programs -- progressing from simple to more complex examples -- that focus on lighting, textures, blending, augmented reality, optimization for performance and speed, and much more. All you need to get started is a solid understanding of C++ and a great idea for an app. Learn fundamental graphics concepts, including transformation matrices, quaternions, and more Get set up for iPhone development with the Xcode environment Become familiar with versions 1.1 and 2.0 of the OpenGL ES API, and learn to use vertex buffer objects, lighting, texturing, and shaders Use the iPhone's touch screen, compass, and accelerometer to build interactivity into graphics applications Build iPhone graphics applications such as a 3D wireframe viewer, a simple augmented reality application, a spring system simulation, and more

Proteins, Pep tides and Amino Acids SourceBook is the second in a series of reference books conceived to cover the explosive growth in commercially available biological reagents. The success of our first reference work, Source Book of Enzymes published in 1997, encouraged us to continue this series. Choosing proteins, peptides, and amino acids as the subject matter for the second volume was simple, given their preeminence in regulating biochemical processes and their importance to modern molecular biology. The SourceBook series was inspired by our difficulty in locating a suitable replacement for a depleted reagent in the midst of an urgent research project. To our dismay, we found the reagent supplier out of business and the product line no longer available. Other reagent catalogs on our library bookshelf offered a narrow selection and incom plete functional information. We were ultimately able to locate a satisfactory alternative only by making countless inquiries and paging through innumerable product catalogs and technical data sheets. We needed-but could not find-a single resource that cataloged available compounds, organized them in a logical and accessible format, provided critical technical information to distinguish one from another, and told us where we could buy them.

When twenty-four-year-old Cassandra Ambrosia threatens to leave her husband in a reckless test of his love, the last thing she expects is for the huge, handsome beast of a man to strip her, spank her, and then claim her more thoroughly and shamefully than she would have thought possible. Cassandra made a vow, and her husband plans to make her keep it. He has been gentle, but now he will teach her what it means to belong to an alpha wolf. She will obey him or be punished. As her mate masters her beautiful body completely, taking her as hard and often as he pleases, Cassandra's passion is rekindled and soon burns hotter than ever. But her rash words unwittingly triggered an ancient curse which has plagued the Ambrosia family for generations, and with a terrible evil closing in, the entire pack will have to stand together if they are to survive. Publisher's Note: The Wolf's Demand is the first book in the Shifters' Call series. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.
