The Fundamental Constants: A Mystery of Physics
The Fundamental Constants: A Mystery of Physics
The speed of light, the fine structure constant, and Newton's constant of gravity -- these are just three among the many physical constants that define our picture of the world. Where do they come from? Are they constant in time and across space? In this book, physicist and author Harald Fritzsch invites the reader to explore the mystery of the...
The Computer and the Brain (The Silliman Memorial Lectures Series)
The Computer and the Brain (The Silliman Memorial Lectures Series)
With a foreword by Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. ChurchlandThis book represents the views of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar...

Physics and Chemistry of Micro-Nanotribology
Physics and Chemistry of Micro-Nanotribology
The roots of micro/nanotribology can be found deep in conventional concepts of tribology. The recognition in the last century of elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) as the principal mode of fluid-film lubrication in many machine components enabled reliable design procedures to be developed for both highly stressed and low elastic modulus machine...
Radiobiology and Environmental Security (NATO Science for Peace and Security Series C: Environmental Security)
Radiobiology and Environmental Security (NATO Science for Peace and Security Series C: Environmental Security)

This volume - like the N.A.T.O. Advanced Research Workshop on which it is based - addresses the fundamental science that contributes to our understanding of the potential risks from ecological terrorism, i.e. dirty bombs, atomic explosions, intentional release of radionuclides into water or air. Both effects on human health (D.N.A. and...

Slow Light: Science and Applications (Optical Science and Engineering)
Slow Light: Science and Applications (Optical Science and Engineering)

Exotic effects of slow light have been observed in the laboratory. But most currently available texts do not explore the wider field of slow light in photonic structures and optical fibers. Reflecting recent research, this book presents a comprehensive introduction to slow light and its potential applications, including storage, switching,...

Effective Modern C++: 42 Specific Ways to Improve Your Use of C++11 and C++14
Effective Modern C++: 42 Specific Ways to Improve Your Use of C++11 and C++14

Coming to grips with C++11 and C++14 is more than a matter of familiarizing yourself with the features they introduce (e.g., auto type declarations, move semantics, lambda expressions, and concurrency support). The challenge is learning to use those features effectively—so that your software is correct, efficient,...

Early Days of X-ray Crystallography (International Union of Crystallography)
Early Days of X-ray Crystallography (International Union of Crystallography)

The year 2012 marked the centenary of one of the most significant discoveries of the early twentieth century, the discovery of X-ray diffraction (March 1912, by Laue, Friedrich and Knipping) and of Bragg's law (November 1912). The discovery of X-ray diffraction confirmed the wave nature of X-rays and the space-lattice hypothesis. It had...
