Tutor - Adding several movies in 1 Dvd

Many of us have download tv series, anime or other short movies, and want to put it in 1 dvd, the simplest way or the simplest application you can use is convertXto Dvd, but this application can't give all we want to , like motion menu with sound, or motion scene selection or DTS sound , put to much movie the result after converting is not very good, etc...
and in here i want to share a little, with TMPGExpress and DVDlab pro , we can create almost all we want to

In this tutor step by step from beginning till burn to disc
i use 4 tv series with total length ( duration ) were 2:48:09
and for summing bitrate for rendering i use VideoCalc

VideoCalc ( Freeware )

Video bitrate calculator for DVD/SVCD/DivX/etc formats. Use the DivX-option for all other video formats like XviD, MP4, MKV or whatever.



A. For Bitrate it shown 3413 kbit/s ( i will use 3000 kbit/s )














repeat again for movie 2, movie 3, movie 4


MediaChance DVD-lab PRO v2.5

Handbook Of Mathematical Formula And Integrals (4th Edition)
Allan Jeffrey, Hui-Hui Dai


Academic Press | English | ISBN: 978-0-12-374288-9 | PDF | Size 4.62 MB | 589 pages

Preface to the Fourth Edition

The preparation of the fourth edition of this handbook provided the opportunity to enlarge the sections on special functions and orthogonal polynomials, as suggested by many users of the third edition. A number of substantial additions have also been made elsewhere, like the enhancement of the description of spherical harmonics, but a major change is the inclusion of a completely new chapter on conformal mapping. Some minor changes that have been made are correcting of a few typographical errors and rearranging the last four chapters of the third edition into a more convenient form. A significant development that occurred during the later stages of preparation of this fourth edition was that my friend and colleague Dr. Hui-Hui Dai joined me as a co-editor. Chapter 30 on conformal mapping has been included because of its relevance to the solution of the Laplace equation in the plane. To demonstrate the connection with the Laplace equation, the chapter is preceded by a brief introduction that demonstrates the relevance of conformal mapping to the solution of boundary value problems for real harmonic functions in the plane. Chapter 30 contains an extensive atlas of useful mappings that display, in the usual diagrammatic way, how given analytic functions w = f(z) map regions of interest in the complex z-plane onto corresponding regions in the complex w-plane, and conversely. By forming composite mappings, the basic atlas of mappings can be extended to more complicated regions than those that have been listed. The development of a typical composite mapping is illustrated by using mappings from the atlas to construct a mapping with the property that a region of complicated shape in the z-plane is mapped onto the much simpler region comprising the upper half of the w-plane. By combining this result with the Poisson integral formula, described in another section of the handbook, a boundary value problem for the original, more complicated region can be solved in terms of a corresponding boundary value problem in the simpler region comprising the upper half of the w-plane. The chapter on ordinary differential equations has been enhanced by the inclusion of material describing the construction and use of the Green’s function when solving initial and boundary value problems for linear second order ordinary differential equations. More has been added about the properties of the Laplace transform and the Laplace and Fourier convolution theorems, and the list of Laplace transform pairs has been enlarged. Furthermore, because of their use with special techniques in numerical analysis when solving differential equations, a new section has been included describing the Jacobi orthogonal polynomials. The section on the Poisson integral formulas has also been enlarged, and its use is illustrated by an example. A brief description of the Riemann method for the solution of hyperbolic equations has been included because of the important theoretical role it plays when examining general properties of wave-type equations, such as their doains of dependence. For the convenience of users, a new feature of the handbook is a CD-ROM that contains the classified lists of integrals found in the book. These lists can be searched manually, and when results of interest have been located, they can be either printed out or used in papers or worksheets as required. This electronic material is introduced by a set of notes (also included in the following pages) intended to help users of the handbook by drawing attention to different notations and conventions that are in current use. If these are not properly understood, they can cause confusion when results from some other sources are combined with results from this handbook. Typically, confusion can occur when dealing with Laplace’s equation and other second order linear partial differential equations using spherical polar coordinates because of the occurrence of differing notations for the angles involved and also when working with Fourier transforms for which definitions and normalizations differ. Some explanatory notes and examples have also been provided to interpret the meaning and use of the inversion integrals for Laplace and Fourier transforms.

Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy by Mayo Clinic.


Author : by Mayo Clinic
Publisher: Collins
Pages: 611
ISBN: 0060746378
2.83 MB

Would-be mothers looking for precise, accurate information from a reputable source will appreciate this mammoth pregnancy guide from the celebrated Mayo Clinic. The volume actually provides much more information than most parents will need: week by week accounts of the baby’s development, entries on how pregnancy can be affected by dozens of previous health conditions (such as HIV and diabetes), self-care tips for side effects like nausea and back pain, sidebars that explain the difference between identical and fraternal twins, etc. But the book contains at least one feature that most pregnant women will find indispensable: charts that indicate how to handle "troublesome signs and symptoms" during each three week period. For example, if a woman has slight spotting during the first four weeks of pregnancy, the chart tells her to notify a doctor during her next hospital visit. But if she has any bleeding at all during weeks 29 to 32, the chart indicates that she should tell her doctor immediately. Another stellar feature is the book’s even-handed series of "decision guides," which help parents make those hard (and even guilt-inducing) choices about breastfeeding, circumcision and whether or not to go back to work. Some parents may find the book’s cool, no-nonsense tone intimidating, or even scary, but when deciding what to do about mid-term cramps or pain, most readers will find great reassurance this volume’s carefully vetted facts.
