Metaphysicians should pay attention to quantum mechanics. Why? Not because it provides definitive answers to many metaphysical questions-the theory itself is remarkably silent on the nature of the physical world, and the various interpretations of the theory on offer present conflicting ontological pictures. Rather, quantum mechanics is essential to the metaphysician because it reshapes standard metaphysical debates and opens up unforeseen new metaphysical possibilities. Even if quantum mechanics provides few clear answers, there are good reasons to think that any adequate understanding of the quantum world will result in a radical reshaping of our classical world-view in some way or other.
In this book, the author provides a comprehensive overview of the intense and sustained work on the relationship between collective memory and history, retracing the royal roads pioneering scholars have traveled in their research and writing on this topic: notably, the politics of commemoration (purposes and practices of public remembrance); the changing uses of memory worked by new technologies of communication (from the threshold of literacy to the digital age); the immobilizing effects of trauma upon memory (with particular attention to the remembered legacy of the Holocaust).
In this book, an attempt is made to provide a hybrid grand unified theory to understand the universe, both in its micro/quantum aspects as well as macro/galactic aspects. The book describes a truly hybrid theory as it encompasses both the modern and ancient theories of the universe, together with its functioning at all levels of human comprehension. One of its authors, Dr Escultura, was nominated in 2005 for a Nobel Prize for his flux theory of gravitation. From then on this theory has been improved, clarified and is now known as the hybrid grand unified theory.
Tissue engineering integrates knowledge and tools from biological sciences and engineering for tissue regeneration. A challenge for tissue engineering is to identify appropriate cell sources. The recent advancement of stem cell biology provides enormous opportunities to engineer stem cells for tissue engineering. The impact of stem cell technology on tissue engineering will be revolutionary. This book covers state-of-the-art knowledge on the potential of stem cells for the regeneration of a wide range of tissues and organs and the technologies for studying and engineering stem cells.
Volume IV continues the author’s odyssey on l-D cellular automata as chronicled in Volumes I, II and III, by uncovering a novel quasi-ergodicity phenomenon involving orbits meandering among omega-limit orbits of complex (group 5) and hyper (group 6) Bernoulli rules. This discovery is embellished with analytical formulas characterizing the fractal properties of characteristic functions, as well as explicit formulas for generating colorful and pedagogically revealing isomorphic basin tree diagrams.
The book introduces Chinese culture to readers of English, using poetry from the various periods rendered into English verse to bring back to life past Chinese society as it developed from about 1000 B.C to the form we see today. With China’s increasing importance on the world stage today, many readers, no doubt, would want to learn more about its ancient culture. However, to learn about a culture from its history alone, especially one as long as that of China, is time-consuming and requires a historian’s expert skill.
Learn how to think and engage like a scientist! BIOLOGY: THE DYNAMIC SCIENCE, Second Edition, provides you with a deep understanding of the core concepts in Biology, building a strong foundation for additional study. In a fresh presentation, the authors explain complex ideas clearly and describe how biologists collect and interpret evidence to test hypotheses about the living world. Russell, Hertz, and McMillan will spark your curiosity about living systems instead of burying it under a mountain of disconnected facts.
Analogies play a fundamental role in science. To understand how and why, at a given moment, a certain analogy was used, one has to know the specific, historical circumstances under which the new idea was developed. This historical background is never presented in scientific articles and quite rarely in books.
"Theory of Numbers: A Textbook" is aimed at students of Mathematics who are graduates or even undergraduates. Very little prerequisites are needed. The reader is expected to know the theory of functions of a real variable and in some chapters complex integration and some simple principles of complex function theory are assumed. The entire book is self contained except theorems 7 and 9 of chapter 11 which are assumed. The most ambitious chapter is chapter 11 where the most attractive result on difference between consecutive primes is proved.
Hermann Sicius stellt in diesem "essential" die Elemente der sechsten Nebengruppe (Chromgruppe) ausfuhrlich vor. Er zeigt, dass die Elemente dieser Gruppe chemisch meist relativ reaktionstrage sind und regelmassige Abstufungen ihrer Eigenschaften zeigen. So nehmen vom Chrom zum Wolfram Dichte, Schmelz- und Siedepunkte zu, die Reaktivitat leicht ab. Chrom, Molybdan und Wolfram entdeckte man Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts, das nur kunstlich darstellbare Seaborgium erst etwa 200 Jahre spater.
Wie der Autor in diesem einführenden Lehrbuch, das auch ohne Vorwissen verständlich ist, schreibt, ist die Chemie "die schönste Unbekannte unter den Wissenschaften". Gerade das Unbekannte aber ängstigt uns am meisten. Das Buch versucht, den Blick für den Reiz dieser faszinierenden Naturwissenschaft zu schärfen und sie so begreifbar zu machen. Dabei hilft eine Darstellung, die auf Vorkenntnisse weitgehend verzichtet. Zahlreiche einfache Versuche vertiefen das Verständnis, Formeln bleiben auf ein Minimum beschränkt.

Plant diseases are destructive and threaten virtually any crop grown on a commercial scale. They are kept in check by plant breeding strategies that have introgressed disease resistance genes into many important crops, and by the deployment of costly control measures, such as antibiotics and fungicides.

In the more than thirty years since the publication of Daniel H. Janzen’s classic Costa Rican Natural History, research in this small but astonishingly biodiverse, well-preserved, and well-studied Latin American nation has evolved from a species-level approach to the study of entire ecosystems. And from the lowland dry forests of Guanacaste to the montane cloud forests of Monteverde, from the seasonal forests of the Central Valley to the coastal species assemblages of Tortuguero, Costa Rica has proven to be as richly diverse in ecosystems as it is in species.I
Differential Geometry: A First Course is an introduction to the classical theory of space curves and surfaces offered at the Graduate and Post- Graduate courses in Mathematics. Based on Serret-Frenet formulae, the theory of space curves is developed and concluded with a detailed discussion on fundamental existence theorem. The theory of surfaces includes the first fundamental form with local intrinsic properties, geodesics on surfaces, the second fundamental form with local non-intrinsic properties and the fundamental equations of the surface theory with several applications.
Though ordinary differential equations is taught as a core course to students in mathematics and applied mathematics, detailed coverage of the topics with sufficient examples is unique.Written by a mathematics professor and intended as a textbook for third- and fourth-year undergraduates, the five chapters of this publication give a precise account of higher order differential equations, power series solutions, special functions, existence and uniqueness of solutions, and systems of linear equations.R
