Advances in Instrumentation

Advances in Instrumentation

Author: Julius Wiedemann Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/05/2013

Earlier efforts in the field of thermal analysis were concerned with the demonstration of the applicability of techniques to a broad spectrum of materials and to establish the relationship of such techniques with other more accepted methods. While such efforts will and should continue, the Third International Conference was unique in that the first standards were disclosed for differential thermal analysis. This was the culmination of the international, cooperative effort of the ICTA's Standardization Committee. The standards currently are available from the United State's National Bureau of Standards. Thus, thermal analysis can be considered to have attained its majority. Reali zation of full maturity can be expected in the near future. Inclusion of plenary lectures in these volumes represents a significant departure from previous Conferences. This change is the result of the ICTA's recognition of its educational responsibilities. In the Foreword of the Proceedings of the Second International Confer ence, Professor L. Berg expressed the hope that thermal methods of analysis would find wider application in science and technology. The citation above, together with the papers presented, indicate the fulfillment of this hope. Xerox Corporation C. B. Murphy Rochester, N.Y., U.S.A. President, ICTA 1968-1971 X Ill PREFACE For the past two decades thermoanalytical methods have reached a stage of considerable importance, which is particularly due to the developments in the area of instrumentation.

LHC: Large Hadaron Collider

LHC: Large Hadaron Collider

Author: Peter Ginter, Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Franzobel Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/02/2013

The Large Hadron Collider is the largest particle accelerator in the world, a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets in a tunnel 100 m beneath the Franco-Swiss border at the CERN research laboratory. It was built to answer the most fundamental question of our universe: where do we come from? Peter Ginter, one of the world's leading photographers, acclaimed author Franzobel and Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Director General of CERN, tackle the subject of this largest and most complex machine ever imagined by man, the 'World Machine', a huge underground particle physics experiment, which will offer science insights into the beginnings of our universe. Unique and amazing photographs make the invisible visible. Peter Ginter has documented the making of the LHC over more than 15 years, not only at CERN, but also by visiting locations across the world where significant contributions have been made to the construction of the LHC. The book was published in scientific, editorial and artistic collaboration with CERN and UNESCO. Text in English, German & French.

Research Project Success The Essential Guide for Science and Engineering Students

Research Project Success The Essential Guide for Science and Engineering Students

Author: Cliodhna McCormac, James Davis, Pagona Papakonstantinou, Neil I. Ward Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/09/2012

The undergraduate research project is almost universally treated as the culmination of all previous lecture, lab and tutorial work. The project allows for the development of individuality and confers ownership of a challenge possessing an originality that goes far beyond the communal legacy presented by age old lab scenarios. Central to this is the magical transition of the student from a consumer of knowledge to a producer, yet the journey is often both daunting and perplexing when considering where to start and how to reach the destination using the resources provided and in the allotted time. There are numerous books within the social sciences which provide students with guidance on how to conduct a successful project but few can be found in relation to the physical sciences. This can be ascribed to the fact that the former has a very similar structure and procedural methodology whereas the latter can possess a near fractal differentiation into a myriad of sub disciplines and specialisms thereby preventing the provision of a single, expansive catchall text. This book adapts some of the components and ethos of the Projects in Controlled Environments (PRinCE2) project management approach to physical science projects. This is the industry and government standard and was introduced to address the common causes of project failure ie. not delivering projects on time, within budget, within scope or to the right quality. It has rapidly emerged as an international standard and most graduates will doubtless encounter it upon moving outside academia and into the wider world. It is a concise, multilevel resource that provides guidance on the core components common to almost every project within the physical, engineering and life sciences (problem assessment and contextualisation, literature review practices, sources and citation, data presentation, reporting styles, data analysis and error etc). It standardises the delivery of the material but, more importantly, links the components together by outlining a coherent procedural road map that can highlight to the student what to do , when to do it and how to solve it procedures. The content of the book is presented through case studies so as to enhance the relevance of the processes, presents examples of good practice and, in keeping with the toolbox approach, can be readily adapted and applied by the students. The book is an accessible reference guide for students, written in a light style, suitable for dipping in and out of as required and the how to/when to/what if examples are presented in an often humorous light. It includes flow charts to emphasize the project planning, dissertation components etc and charts to highlight presentation of data, analysis, interpretation and error.

Scientific Method in Brief

Scientific Method in Brief

Author: Hugh G., Jr. Gauch Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/09/2012

The fundamental principles of the scientific method are essential for enhancing perspective, increasing productivity, and stimulating innovation. These principles include deductive and inductive logic, probability, parsimony and hypothesis testing, as well as science's presuppositions, limitations, ethics and bold claims of rationality and truth. The examples and case studies drawn upon in this book span the physical, biological and social sciences; include applications in agriculture, engineering and medicine; and also explore science's interrelationships with disciplines in the humanities such as philosophy and law. Informed by position papers on science from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, National Academy of Sciences and National Science Foundation, this book aligns with a distinctively mainstream vision of science. It is an ideal resource for anyone undertaking a systematic study of scientific method for the first time, from undergraduates to professionals in both the sciences and the humanities.

Die dargestellten Projekte spiegeln auch die kreative Vielfalt von Jugend(sub)kulturen in Deutschland wider. Dazu wollen wir mit diesem Buch auch beitragen und ermutigen gerade auch bei dem Thema Jugend und Jugendkulturen noch genauer hinzuschauen, sich nicht nur auf Artikel in den Tageszeitungen oder sonstwo ber Jugendliche zu verlassen, sondern vielleicht auch mal selbst auf Entdeckungsreise zu gehen in der Welt der Jugend(sub)kulturen. So geht die "e;Entdeckungsreise"e; in diesem Buch ber Musik, HipHop, bis hin zu Visual Kei ber Streetstyle und zurck. Eine Reihe von Bildern und Photos vervollstndigen den Gesamteindruck und machen Lust auf mehr.

International Animal Research Regulations Impact on Neuroscience Research: Workshop Summary

International Animal Research Regulations Impact on Neuroscience Research: Workshop Summary

Animals are widely used in neuroscience research to explore biological mechanisms of nervous system function, to identify the genetic basis of disease states, and to provide models of human disorders and diseases for the development of new treatments. To ensure the humane care and use of animals, numerous laws, policies, and regulations are in place governing the use of animals in research, and certain animal regulations have implications specific to neuroscience research. To consider animal research regulations from a global perspective, the IOM Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders, in collaboration with the National Research Council and the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research, held a workshop in Buckinghamshire, UK, July 26-27, 2011. The workshop brought together neuroscientists, legal scholars, administrators, and other key stakeholders to discuss current and emerging trends in animal regulations as they apply to the neurosciences. This document summarizes the workshop.
