The role of leisure is highlighted as an important component of work-life balance. Parents with non-traditional work schedules often face considerable challenges coordinating employment with family routines. The findings raise questions about reconciling parents’ and employers’ needs with the rhythm of family life, and why patterns of gendered behaviour persist despite the obstacles and opportunities created by non-standard or irregular work hours. At the same time, the nature of motherhood and fatherhood is changing and raising children has become more time-intensive than ever before. This book is particularly useful to researchers, educators, parents and employers interested in gaining critical insight into the effect of non-traditional schedules and time-intensive parenting practices on parents’ lives. In this book, Margo Hilbrecht explores how employed parents spend their time and the relationship to time pressure, stress and work-life balance. Drawing on a gender relations perspective, she uses quantitative data to outline differences and similarities among mothers and fathers, weaving together household factors, employment arrangements and broader socio-cultural influences.

|Real-time visualization of arbitrary implicit functions Feature Based Visualization. Книга по Требованию Younis H. |
In this thesis we applied powerful mathematical tools such as interval arithmetic for applications in computational geometry, visualization and computer graphics, leading to robust, general and e? cient algorithms. We presented a completely novel approach for computing the arrangement of arbitrary implicit planar curves and performed ray casting of arbitrary implicit functions by jointly achieving, for the ? rst time, robustness, e? ciency and ? exibility. Indeed we were able to render even the most di? cult implicits in real-time with guaranteed topology and at high resolution.
