Magnetohydrodynamics of Laboratory and Astrophysical Plasmas
Magnetohydrodynamics of Laboratory and Astrophysical Plasmas
With ninety per cent of visible matter in the universe existing in the plasma state, an understanding of magnetohydrodynamics is essential for anyone looking to understand solar and astrophysical processes, from stars to accretion discs and galaxies; as well as laboratory applications focused on harnessing controlled fusion energy. This...
Solving Fermi's Paradox (Cambridge Astrobiology)
Solving Fermi's Paradox (Cambridge Astrobiology)
The search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (SETI) has for sixty years attempted to solve Fermi's paradox: if intelligent life is relatively common in the universe, where is everybody? Examining SETI through this lens, this volume summarises current thinking on the prevalence of intelligent life in the universe, and discusses sixty-six...
Humanomics: Moral Sentiments and the Wealth of Nations for the Twenty-First Century (Cambridge Studies in Economics, Choice, and Society)
Humanomics: Moral Sentiments and the Wealth of Nations for the Twenty-First Century (Cambridge Studies in Economics, Choice, and Society)
While neoclassical analysis works well for studying impersonal exchange in markets, it fails to explain why people conduct themselves the way they do in their personal relationships with family, neighbors, and friends. In Humanomics, Nobel Prize-winning economist Vernon L. Smith and his long-time co-author Bart J. Wilson bring their study of...
Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine
Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine

Justice in the Question of Palestine is often framed as a question of law. Yet none of the Israel-Palestinian conflict's most vexing challenges have been resolved by judicial intervention. Occupation law has failed to stem Israel's settlement enterprise. Laws of war have permitted killing and destruction during Israel's...

Cassandra and the Poetics of Prophecy in Greek and Latin Literature
This book explores the miscommunications of the prophet Cassandra - cursed to prophesy the truth but never to be understood until too late - in Greek and Latin poetry. Using insights from the field of translation studies, the book focuses on the dialogic interactions that take place between the articulation and the realization of Cassandra's...
War and Childhood in the Era of the Two World Wars (Publications of the German Historical Institute)
War and Childhood in the Era of the Two World Wars (Publications of the German Historical Institute)
The histories of modern war and childhood were the result of competing urgencies. According to ideals of childhood widely accepted throughout the world by 1900, children should have been protected, even hidden, from conflict and danger. Yet at a time when modern ways of childhood became increasingly possible for economic, social, and political...
Architecture, Society, and Ritual in Viking Age Scandinavia: Doors, Dwellings, and Domestic Space
Architecture, Society, and Ritual in Viking Age Scandinavia: Doors, Dwellings, and Domestic Space
In this book, Marianne Hem Eriksen explores the social organization of Viking Age Scandinavia through a study of domestic architecture, and in particular, the doorway. A highly charged architectural element, the door is not merely a practical, constructional solution. Doors control access, generate movement, and demark boundaries, yet also serve...
Art and Form: From Roger Fry to Global Modernism (Refiguring Modernism)
Art and Form: From Roger Fry to Global Modernism (Refiguring Modernism)

This important new study reevaluates British art writing and the rise of formalism in the visual arts from 1900 to 1939. Taking Roger Fry as his starting point, Sam Rose rethinks how ideas about form influenced modernist culture and the movement’s significance to art history today.

In the context of modernism,...

Geometric Folding Algorithms: Linkages, Origami, Polyhedra
Geometric Folding Algorithms: Linkages, Origami, Polyhedra
How can linkages, pieces of paper, and polyhedra be folded? The authors present hundreds of results and over 60 unsolved 'open problems' in this comprehensive look at the mathematics of folding, with an emphasis on algorithmic or computational aspects. Folding and unfolding problems have been implicit since Albrecht Dürer in the...
Simulating Ecol Evolution Systems C
Simulating Ecol Evolution Systems C
Computer simulations are a powerful tool for understanding ecological and evolutionary systems. Simulating Ecological and Evolutionary Systems in C models a diverse range of biological processes and systems, including competition, foraging, predation, mating systems, and life-history optimization, by simulating large collections of interacting...
Updating Logical Databases (Cambridge Tracts in Theoretical Computer Science)
Updating Logical Databases (Cambridge Tracts in Theoretical Computer Science)
This book tackles the problems of update algorithms for databases. How can one construct and maintain a database of facts, capable of incorporating new information and getting rid of all outdated information, and yet in the process not disturb any other information in the database? The author has produced a formal method of specifying the...
