Magnetic Mysteries by Daniel Avery 1.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 57 minutes ago

There's no escape from the force which we perceive as magnetism. Magnetic fields not only power solar flares and affect the Earth's weather and telecommunications, this strong invisible force also pervades the entire Universe as we know it. Whilst scientists have learnt a great deal about magnetism, gaps still remain in our knowledge about this phenomenon. Written for the layperson and student alike, this jargon-free essay examines some entertaining 'magnetic mysteries' and contains an assortment of facts and fascinating stories relating to magnetism and its possible links to supernatural phenomena.

Microgreens contain comparable and often larger measurements of these supplements than the developed greens. ?? ??They can also reduce the risk of associated diseases: ?? ??

Solar Secret by Shane McMinn 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Science and Spirituality have been opposing forces for some time now. It has not always been this way. Both important fields in their own right, which influence our lives, are starting to realign again. In this book we look at what we scientifically know about our solar system and the planets within it. This book is part scientific and part psychically channelled. In it we are also introduced to the 'Solar council', who are a group of entities/representatives from each of the planets within the solar system that make up the council. The 'Solar council' enlighten us as to the nature of our planetary system and the reason for existence of each individual planet within the solar family. They introduce us to life upon each planet and some of the moons at varying dimensional levels. This introductory book, that will lead to further books from the 'Solar council', sheds light on the premise that our whole solar system is a school of learning, something that has been known of by previous civilisations inhabiting planet earth in the past, but the information has been lost and on occasion, hidden from the masses of people living and experiencing here. This book also provides evidence as to how the fields of science and spirituality are aligning.

ZERO to ONE: Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization by Bruce 'Zen' Benefiel 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

You might think this is going to be about computer code, the binary system of ones and zeros, and how technology is going to help manage our planetary civilization. In a sense you'd be right, but not in the way you might think. In another sense, and perhaps quite literally, the internet is an interface into such a system that is driven by both emotion and logic, with the capability to engage people, places and things for various purposes. There is another binary connection that, through the choice of 'yes' or 'no,' molds our reality on a moment to moment basis. It, too, is an emotion and logic driven system. The two are nearly inseparable and often in conflict. We ask questions and ponder paths, imagining possibilities for creating a sustainable world. Current quantum theory indicates we have more capacity for becoming self-aware and managing our reality better; individually influencing a collective consciousness. On the theme of destiny or fate, or even just making better choices, does synchronicity have anything to do with it? How do we access a clearer path toward self-actualization and self-realization that benefits us all? If we consider the notion of creating our reality, does that eliminate determinism or is it complementary? How specific is the form, fit and function for us and a prudent path in the world? Does this commitment take free will away or refine it with discernment and wisdom? Will knowing more have an effect on our activity in the future? Is your shift in awareness going to impact the world around you? How do you know? ZERO to ONE - Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization is more than advancing toward a Type I civilization. According to Kardashev and now Dr. Kaku, it is one that has reached a point of sustainability; a balanced approach of people and planet working together as one. How does our knowledge and thinking get us there? Is there a movement toward advancing consciousness in humanity? Is consciousness more ...

Aquaponics for beginners: A beginners guide to maintain and grow various organic fruits ,vegetables, herbs with easy method by Milo Gross 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Would you like to start growing organic vegetables, fruit, herbs at home, while fish does all the work and even on a low cost? If yes, read on... Inside you will find and discover everything you need about Aquaponic gardening: ????????Aquaponic gardens produce food with a reduced amount of water compared to a conventional yard. Aquaponics is now popular with people concerned with nutrition, the prevention of synthetic sweeteners, and environmental protection. You can create an aquaponic garden almost anywhere you are ready to bring light and space with a footprint as small as a square foot. The science and operation of Aquaponics are pure. When you set up your machine, you don't need to germinate or bend the water. You will be able to grow more plants in less space than in a traditional garden, and your plants will grow faster and more substantially. ????????The science of Aquaponics in the 21st century is the custom of raising fish and vegetables in a symbiotic recirculation system. It is a marriage of Hydroponics and aquaculture in which fish create chemicals that simplify the expensive chemical fertilizers used in Hydroponics. Subsequently, the plants oxygenate the water to make it suitable for fish, replacing expensive filters and aeration equipment used in aquaculture. ????????Aquaponics has existed for centuries, practiced in China, where fish were raised near prosperous rice fields, and by the ancient Aztecs who built floating barges called chinampas in Mexico. Chinampas were mostly a network of canals that supported the growth of various crops on these floating islands. Plant growth was fueled and supported by the nutrient-rich waste at the bottom of these channels. SYSTEM ????????Getting an aquaponics system can be a chore and very expensive. Opting for a cheaper system could be very risky as it might not adequately provide the desired solution. To avoid being a scam victim, there are specific questions to ask yourself before embarking on ...

From Newton to Einstein - The Changing Conceptions of the Universe by Benjamin Harrow (e-artnow) Price verified one day ago

Einstein's contributions to our ideas of time and space and to our knowledge of the universe in general, are of so momentous a nature, that they easily take their place among the two or three greatest achievements of the twentieth century. This book attempts to give, in popular form, an account of this work. As, however, Einstein's work is so largely dependent upon the work of Newton and Newton's successors, the first two chapters are devoted to the latter.

Cool Numbers by Alan Hall PhD 3.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 23 hours ago

Hidden deep inside the Amazonian jungle, there are tribes that happily exist in a 'world without numbers'. These so-called 'primitives' can get along just fine without the need to count above 5 - apparently they have no money and don't actually need it. Moreover, scientists who have traveled to study this race of subsistence farmers have emerged with 'glazed over faces' as though they have entered a magical realm that is devoid of even the most basic mathematical skills. This poses a question - 'what have numbers and mathematics done for us?' Here, I take a look at numbers, that is, where numbers came from and how the symbols for the known digits were derived. I investigate, in an easy-to-understand and entertaining way, how, shortly after crawling out of caves, mankind began to count. I detail, in fascinating stories, how some of the most intelligent mathematicians and the mind-boggling theorems and mathematics they discovered have irreversibly altered the trajectory of mankind and the planet we currently inhabit. This is by no means a comprehensive treatise on number theory or any particular branch of the vast subject that is mathematics. To this end, I have cherry-picked a number of mathematical themes which range from 'magical numbers' right through to Pi and the significance of numbers to the Universe.

RESPECTING THE LORD: The True Beginning of Knowledge (Hiking the Trail of Truth Book 9) by Mark Stephen Taylor Price verified one day ago

There does not seem to be a predominant amount of respect for the Lord in these current times in which we live. Let's face it -- it's a chaotic world out there, is it not? I would blame most of that on a lack of both teaching and understanding regarding the Creator of the world. However, the existence of God can be clearly seen through the things He has made, which things are quite obvious all around us Yet, it appears that many are not really looking. Why is that, I wonder? It is written that a fear (respect) of the Lord is truly the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 1:7). Here, Solomon is clearly teaching that belief in God is the necessary prelude to the understanding of solid truth and the acquisition of any knowledge. Beginning is literally first in order of importance; the first principle. In many Biblical passages the fear (respect) of the Lord is to be taught and learned. The beginning (foundation) of all true knowledge is grounded in this respect. The purpose of this particular writing is to teach one how and why to respect the Lord. It is an eye- opening hike along the trail of truth which can give understanding to the simple -- to those of contrite heart. To anyone who has the ability to reason this journey will be quite profoundly informative. This journey requires courage -- the personal will to reach the summit of the mountain of believing. We are hoping, dear reader, that you are one of those rare persons...

An Introduction to Syntropy by Ulisse Di Corpo 4.3 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

As a mathematician Luigi Fantappiè could not accept that Heisenberg had rejected half of the solutions of the fundamental equations and in 1941, while listing the properties of the forward and backward in time energy, Fantappiè discovered that the forward in time energy is governed by the law of entropy, whereas the backward in time energy is governed by a complementary law that he named syntropy, combining the Greek words syn which means converging and tropos which means tendency. Entropy is the tendency towards energy dissipation, the famous second law of thermodynamics, also known as the law of heat death. On the contrary, syntropy is the tendency towards energy concentration, increase in differentiation, complexity and structures. These are the mysterious properties of life!

Studies On Darwinism & Genetics by Giovanni Lo Presti (Gruppo Albatros Il Filo) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

The structure that supports the Universe is the Unicum: a unique phenomenon that reveals itself only once and in different forms, codified in the four Fundamental Laws of Nature, among which electromagnetism is the most meaningful expression for the living and the most qualifying one for our species. The Universe, which we are part of, is ruled by the uniqueness of its phenomena, for no event can repeat itself into other events, but only in its own uniqueness. Everyone is unique and different from other types of uniqueness. Different uniquenesses (cells) create an individual, who is, therefore, the product of various and different cellular uniquenesses that are mutually connected. Different individuals who have a unique protein structure give birth to a species that, as the product of protein uniquenesses, is unique itself. For this reason, its original uniqueness does not allow it to evolve into a different species. Reality is integrated in a conventional Time-Space dimension, which is equivalent to itself, hence an existing being, as inert (matter) and dynamic (life) electromagnetic energy cannot be subject to Darwinian evolutionary processes, integrated in a time that does not exist. The existing being has to be considered, indeed, as a transitory phase from the potential state to the dynamic one under different forms, because electromagnetic energy, which is the essence of the matter, dynamically expressed by life, always remains the same, even in materials of different forms. Form does not have an effect on substance, because it is nothing but a mental representation used to give a conventional identity to the matter. Since there is no intellect without life, intellect is a qualifying aspect of universal electromagnetic energy, which expresses itself through brain structures codified in the DNA of every individual. For this reason, an intelligent person is intelligent because he or she was born intelligent. One cannot become smart through evolutionary ...

Cow Dung - A Down-To-Earth Solution To Global Warming And Climate Change by Dr. Sahadeva dasa (Soul Science University Press) 3.6 Stars (12 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Environmental crisis is for real and it's coming around faster than you think. It's not a brainchild of some conspiracy theorist but a tangible, perceivable fact, proven by the catastrophic events all over the world. But for most of us, caught up in the daily grind, it's hardly a subject worth pondering over. Common man in the streets of London, New York or Delhi has very little time to worry about some ozone layer up there or some damn iceberg in the North Pole. At best, it is a snow bear's problem. But the scientific fraternity and many political leaders don't think so. They are waking up to the horrors of global warming and climatic change. Hectic efforts are on to contain the damage but with very little success. This book provides a simple solution to this grave crisis which has the potential to wipe out life altogether. This is a calamity of unprecedented proportions coming our way and a point of no return for the industrial civilization. One of the arguments sceptics throw back at you is that the climate has always changed, and that is absolutely right. It's the rate of change that is the problem right now. It's changing so quickly that it exceeds our adaptive capacity. We are in a hole and it's time to stop digging.

A History of Force Feeding: Hunger Strikes, Prisons and Medical Ethics, 1909–1974 by Ian Miller (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This book is Open Access under a CC BY license. It is the first monograph-length study of the force-feeding of hunger strikers in English, Irish and Northern Irish prisons. It examines ethical debates that arose throughout the twentieth century when governments authorised the force-feeding of imprisoned suffragettes, Irish republicans and convict prisoners. It also explores the fraught role of prison doctors called upon to perform the procedure. Since the Home Office first authorised force-feeding in 1909, a number of questions have been raised about the procedure. Is force-feeding safe? Can it kill? Are doctors who feed prisoners against their will abandoning the medical ethical norms of their profession? And do state bodies use prison doctors to help tackle political dissidence at times of political crisis?

Ben Ketchum is an assistant professor at a small college in Montana with just one year left to secure his tenure or he's going to be out of a job, this at a time when there are already alarming cutbacks going on in science due to Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq War. And as if to complicate his life further, the all important anthrax grant Ben was counting on didn't come through so now he's forced to begin a new project, this one involving a different type of microbe than what he's used to: the brewer's yeast. To learn all he can about the yeast, Ben takes two weeks off and travels first to exotic Egypt where he discovers the yeast's role in building this once-great civilization, including brewing beer, making wine, raising bread as well as the pyramids. He then travels to Germany, a more recent example of a beer culture, where he uncovers the yeast's influence in Western civilization including his own country. Ben's day-to-day concerns with being a mentor, teacher, and scientist while at the same time having to secure his tenure, is a unifying theme. Each story is woven together with interesting facts about ancient history & science so as to give the reader an appreciation for not only what it's like to run a modern research laboratory, but also how our everyday world has been shaped by unseen microbes, often for thousands of years.

Differential Undercounts in the U.S. Census: Who is Missed? (SpringerBriefs in Population Studies) by William P. O’Hare (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This open access book describes the differences in US census coverage, also referred to as "differential undercount", by showing which groups have the highest net undercounts and which groups have the greatest undercount differentials, and discusses why such undercounts occur. In addition to focusing on measuring census coverage for several demographic characteristics, including age, gender, race, Hispanic origin status, and tenure, it also considers several of the main hard-to-count populations, such as immigrants, the homeless, the LBGT community, children in foster care, and the disabled. However, given the dearth of accurate undercount data for these groups, they are covered less comprehensively than those demographic groups for which there is reliable undercount data from the Census Bureau. This book is of interest to demographers, statisticians, survey methodologists, and all those interested in census coverage.

Biofuels and Sustainability: Holistic Perspectives for Policy-making (Science for Sustainable Societies) by Kazuhiko Takeuchi (Springer) 3.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This open access book presents a comprehensive analysis of biofuel use strategies from an interdisciplinary perspective using sustainability science. This interdisciplinary perspective (social science-natural science) means that the strategies and policy options proposed will have significant impacts on the economy and society alike. Biofuels are expected to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, revitalizing economies in agricultural communities and alleviating poverty. However, despite these anticipated benefits, international organizations such as the FAO, OECD and UN have published reports expressing concerns that biofuel promotion may lead to deforestation, water pollution and water shortages. The impacts of biofuel use are extensive, cross-sectoral and complex, and as such, comprehensive analyses are required in order to assess the extent to which biofuels can contribute to sustainable societies. Applying interdisciplinary sustainability science concepts and methodologies, the book helps to enhance the establishment of a sustainable society as well as the development of appropriate responses to a global need for urgent action on current issues related to biofuels.

Charles Peirce's Theory of Scientific Method (American Philosophy Book 7) by Francis E. Reilly (Fordham University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This book is an attempt to understand a significant part of the complex thought of Charles Sanders Peirce, especially in those areas which interested him most: scientific method and related philosophical questions. It is organized primarily from Peirce's own writings, taking chronological settings into account where appropriate, and pointing out the close connections of several major themes in Peirce's work which show the rich diversity of his thought and its systematic unity. Following an introductory sketch of Peirce the thinking and writer is a study of the spirit and phases of scientific inquiry, and a consideration of its relevance to certain outstanding philosophical views which Peirce held. This double approach is necessary because his views on scientific method are interlaces with a profound and elaborate philosophy of the cosmos. Peirce's thought is unusually close-knit, and his difficulty as a writer lies in his inability to achieve a partial focus without bringing into view numerous connections and relations with the whole picture of reality. Peirce received some of the esteem he deserves when the publication of his Collected Papers began more than thirty-five years ago. Some reviewers and critics, however, have attempted to fit Peirce into their own molds in justification of a particular position; others have disinterestedly sought to present him in completely detached fashion. Here, the author has attempted to understand Peirce as Peirce intended himself to be understood, and has presented what he believes Perice's philosophy of scientific method to be. He singles out for praise Peirce's Greek insistence on the primacy of theoretical knowledge and his almost Teilhardian synthesis of evolutionary themes. Primarily philosophical, this volume analyzes Peirce's thought using a theory of knowledge and metaphysics rather than formal logic.

At the heart of Fields of Gold is a tension between efforts to transform farmland into a new financial asset class, and land's physical and social properties, which frequently obstruct that transformation. But what makes the book unique among the growing body of work on the global land grab is Fairbairn's interest in those acquiring land, rather than those affected by land acquisitions. Fairbairn's work sheds ethnographic light on the actors and relationships -- from Iowa to Manhattan to São Paulo -- that have helped to turn land into an attractive financial asset class.

Roundup (Glyphosate) is Making You Sicker than You Think:: Overcome Cancer, Allergies, Autism, Liver Damage and more! by George McClelland 3.4 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This book is short, but perhaps the most important book you will read in order to improve your health. We were assured that Roundup was safe and did not damage our environment. History and research has proven it is not safe and is damaging our environment. It is behind most of the explosion of illnesses. It is used in such large quantities that it is in our air, rain and water supply. Even those of us who are careful of what we eat and drink are still exposed to it and even small exposure causes major health problems. Research has found a way to repair the damage in your body caused by Roundup (glyphosate). You will find a link enclosed which will educate you on this breakthrough. I did not attempt to give you all the details because you will learn enough in this book to make an educated decision. If you want the background scientific research, you can click on the proper link below. The explosion in all forms of sicknesses have many causes, most of which lie in what industry is doing to us and our environment. Most of the big corporations are owned or controlled by the same cartel of people. They have the money to buy our politicians or to force the politicians to do their bidding. Laws are being written to allow them to destroy our health and environment and not be held accountable. Unless we, the public, educate ourselves about what is really going on in our world, we are doomed to die painful and early deaths. We cannot count on our government to protect us because it is too busy protecting the people who are destroying our world and our health. We have been brainwashed to believe everything they say is good and we must wake ourselves up from our slumber. If not, the future of humans on this earth is going to be a lot shorter than any of us expect. We must begin holding our government - representatives and congressmen/women alike - accountable. Elected officials who vote for detrimental laws must be removed from office. And I am talking about both federal ...

Nuclear Back-end and Transmutation Technology for Waste Disposal: Beyond the Fukushima Accident by Ken Nakajima (Springer) 3.8 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This book covers essential aspects of transmutation technologies, highlighting especially the advances in Japan. The accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) has caused us to focus attention on a large amount of spent nuclear fuels stored in NPPs. In addition, public anxiety regarding the treatment and disposal of high-level radioactive wastes that require long-term control is growing. The Japanese policy on the back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle is still unpredictable in the aftermath of the accident. Therefore, research and development for enhancing the safety of various processes involved in nuclear energy production are being actively pursued worldwide. In particular, nuclear transmutation technology has been drawing significant attention after the accident. This publication is timely with the following highlights: 1) Development of accelerator-driven systems (ADSs), which is a brand-new reactor concept for transmutation of highly radioactive wastes; 2) Nuclear reactor systems from the point of view of the nuclear fuel cycle. How to reduce nuclear wastes or how to treat them including the debris from TEPCO's Fukushima nuclear power stations is discussed; and 3) Environmental radioactivity, radioactive waste treatment and geological disposal policy. State-of-the-art technologies for overall back-end issues of the nuclear fuel cycle as well as the technologies of transmutation are presented here. The chapter authors are actively involved in the development of ADSs and transmutation-related technologies. The future of the back-end issues in Japan is very uncertain after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi NPP and this book provides an opportunity for readers to consider the future direction of those issues.

The Climate Solutions Consensus: What We Know and What To Do About It by National Council for Science and the Environment (Island Press) 3.7 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize (with former Vice President Al Gore) for its reporting on the human causes of climate change. In 2008, the National Council for Science and the Environment reported that the acceleration of climate change is already faster than the IPCC projected only a year earlier. How we deal with the rapid environmental changes, and the human forces that are driving these changes, will be among the defining issues of our generation. Climate Solutions Consensus presents an agenda for America. It is the first major consensus statement by the nation's leading scientists, and it provides specific recommendations for federal policies, for state and local governments, for businesses, and for colleges and universities that are preparing future generations who will be dealing with a radically changed climate. The book draws upon the recommendations developed by more than 1200 scientists, educators and decision makers who participated in the National Council for Science and the Environment's 8th National Conference on Science, Policy and the Environment. After presenting a lucid narrative of the science behind climate change and its solutions, Climate Solutions Consensus presents 35 practical, results-oriented approaches for minimizing climate change and its impacts. It clearly spells out options for technological, societal, and policy actions. And it deals head-on with controversial topics, including nuclear energy, ocean fertilization and atmospheric geo-engineering. One of the book's key conclusions is that climate solutions are about much more than energy sources. They involve re-examining everything people do with an eye toward minimizing climate impacts. This includes our eating habits, consumption patterns, transportation, building and housing, forestry, land use, education, and more. According to these scientists, the time to act is now. With clarity and urgency, they tell us ...

Dissecting the Criminal Corpse: Staging Post-Execution Punishment in Early Modern England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its ... by Elizabeth T. Hurren (Palgrave Macmillan) 3.4 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 21 hours ago

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman's rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma. Criminals had large bull-necks, strong willpowers, and hearty survival instincts. Extreme hypothermia often disguised coma in a prisoner hanged in the winter cold. The youngest and fittest were capable of reviving on the dissection table. Many died under the lancet. Capital legislation disguised a complex medical choreography that surgeons staged. They broke the Hippocratic Oath by executing the Dangerous Dead across England from 1752 until 1832. This book is open access under a CC-BY license.

Nature Guiding by William Gould Vinal (Comstock Publishing Associates) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Nature Guiding is the science of inculcating nature enthusiasm, nature principles, and nature facts into the spirit of individuals. "Doing" nature-study means observing, wondering, and solving problems. It could include collecting, building, measuring, painting, planning, writing, touching, experimenting or any of a wide range of other activities. Most importantly, it allows children to be "original investigators." This book is intended as a resource for teachers and students engaged in nature study at summer camps and in schools. William Gould Vinal believed that the teacher of nature study should be "in sympathy with the simple life and the country way," that the nature study should emphasize observation of the interactions of plants and animals in their environment, and not be reduced to matters of taxonomy and anatomy. In Nature Guiding, he offers advice to camp counselors and school teachers on incorporating nature study into everyday activities, as well as suggestions for parents and others about using visits to state and national parks to teach nature lore.

Riverine Ecosystem Management: Science for Governing Towards a Sustainable Future (Aquatic Ecology Series Book 8) by Stefan Schmutz 3.7 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This open access book surveys the frontier of scientific river research and provides examples to guide management towards a sustainable future of riverine ecosystems. Principal structures and functions of the biogeosphere of rivers are explained; key threats are identified, and effective solutions for restoration and mitigation are provided. Rivers are among the most threatened ecosystems of the world. They increasingly suffer from pollution, water abstraction, river channelisation and damming. Fundamental knowledge of ecosystem structure and function is necessary to understand how human acitivities interfere with natural processes and which interventions are feasible to rectify this. Modern water legislation strives for sustainable water resource management and protection of important habitats and species. However, decision makers would benefit from more profound understanding of ecosystem degradation processes and of innovative methodologies and tools for efficient mitigation and restoration. The book provides best-practice examples of sustainable river management from on-site studies, European-wide analyses and case studies from other parts of the world. This book will be of interest to researchers in the field of aquatic ecology, river system functioning, conservation and restoration, to postgraduate students, to institutions involved in water management, and to water related industries.

Particle Accelerator Physics (Graduate Texts in Physics) by Helmut Wiedemann (Springer) 4.9 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This book by Helmut Wiedemann is a well-established, classic text, providing an in-depth and comprehensive introduction to the field of high-energy particle acceleration and beam dynamics. The present 4th edition has been significantly revised, updated and expanded. The newly conceived Part I is an elementary introduction to the subject matter for undergraduate students. Part II gathers the basic tools in preparation of a more advanced treatment, summarizing the essentials of electrostatics and electrodynamics as well as of particle dynamics in electromagnetic fields. Part III is an extensive primer in beam dynamics, followed, in Part IV, by an introduction and description of the main beam parameters and including a new chapter on beam emittance and lattice design. Part V is devoted to the treatment of perturbations in beam dynamics. Part VI then discusses the details of charged particle acceleration. Parts VII and VIII introduce the more advanced topics of coupled beam dynamics and describe very intense beams - a number of additional beam instabilities are introduced and reviewed in this new edition. Part IX is an exhaustive treatment of radiation from accelerated charges and introduces important sources of coherent radiation such as synchrotrons and free-electron lasers. The appendices at the end of the book gather useful mathematical and physical formulae, parameters and units. Solutions to many end-of-chapter problems are given. This textbook is suitable for an intensive two-semester course starting at the senior undergraduate level.

High Mountain Conservation in a Changing World (Advances in Global Change Research Book 62) by Jordi Catalan (Springer) 3.8 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This book provides case studies and general views of the main processes involved in the ecosystem shifts occurring in the high mountains and analyses the implications for nature conservation. Case studies from the Pyrenees are preponderant, with a comprehensive set of mountain ranges surrounded by highly populated lowland areas also being considered. The introductory and closing chapters will summarise the main challenges that nature conservation may face in mountain areas under the environmental shifting conditions. Further chapters put forward approaches from environmental geography, functional ecology, biogeography, and paleoenvironmental reconstructions. Organisms from microbes to large carnivores, and ecosystems from lakes to forest will be considered. This interdisciplinary book will appeal to researchers in mountain ecosystems, students and nature professionals. This book is open access under a CC BY license.

Shaping Natural History and Settler Society: Mary Elizabeth Barber and the Nineteenth-Century Cape (Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies ... by Tanja Hammel (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This book explores the life and work of Mary Elizabeth Barber, a British-born settler scientist who lived in the Cape during the nineteenth century. It provides a lens into a range of subjects within the history of knowledge and science, gender and social history, postcolonial, critical heritage and archival studies. The book examines the international importance of the life and works of a marginalized scientist, the instrumentalisation of science to settlers' political concerns and reveals the pivotal but largely silenced contribution of indigenous African experts. Including a variety of material, visual and textual sources, this study explores how these artefacts are archived and displayed in museums and critically analyses their content and silences. The book traces Barber's legacy across three continents in collections and archives, offering insights into the politics of memory and history-making. At the same time, it forges a nuanced argument, incorporating study of the North and South, the history of science and social history, and the past and the present.
