It is not an alternative to a standard anatomy text, it acts more as a laboratory supplement. The fun bit is that your kitchen takes the place of the dissection room. Each recipe provides an insight into one or more organs, and all you need to do is go to the supermarket and be prepared to think a

Dr Joel Feinstein taught one of the four courses available on Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras. He delivered four 90 minute lectures on and this learning object contains the slides, handouts, annotated slides and audio podcasts from each session. Banach function algebras are complete normed algebras of bounded, continuous, complex-valued functions defined on topological spaces.
