TitleOrganizing scientific meetings
Author(s)August Epple
Description1 online resource (xiv, 184 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteDealing with virtually all aspects of scientific meetings, August Epple gives invaluable guidance for prospective organizers. He covers events from local afternoon Symposia to International Congresses with more than 1000 participants. He also provides insights for the tourist industry into the specific requirements that make scientific meetings different from others. The author gets straight to the point, identifying common problems and offering solutions. In twenty chapters and an extensive appendix, attention is given to critical details such as selection of the meeting site and timing of the event; stepwise program development; the selection of speakers and other key participants; social functions; budget matters; fund raising; the design of forms and brochures; publication of proceedings. If you are organizing a scientific meeting this is your indispensable guide

TitleIEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee as enabling technologies for low-power wireless systems with quality-of-service constraints
Author(s)Stefano Tennina...
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteThis book outlines the most important characteristics of IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee and how they can be used to engineer Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) systems and applications, with a particular focus on Quality-of-Service (QoS) aspects. It starts by providing a snapshot of the most relevant features of these two protocols, identifying some gaps in the standard specifications. Then it describes several state-of-the-art open-source implementations, models and tools that have been designed by the authors and have been widely used by the international community. The book also outlines the fundament

TitleAstrophysics of the interstellar medium
Author(s)Walter J. Maciel;translated by Margarida Serote Roos
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteThe space between the stars includes a large variety of objects, where physical processes occur that are fundamental for the structure and evolution of galaxies. This book gives the reader some basic knowledge of these processes and at the same time, presents estimates of the main quantities relevant to the study of the interstellar medium. The book could be used as an introductory course on the interstellar medium by science students or by readers interested in astrophysics with an adequate physics and mathematics background

TitleNatural fabrications : science, emergence and consciousness
Author(s)William Seager
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2012.
Description1 online resource : ill
Abstract NoteThe spectacular success of the scientific enterprise over the last four hundred years has led to the promise of an all encompassing vision of the natural world. In this elegant picture, everything we observe is based upon just a few fundamental processes and entities. The almost infinite variety and complexity of the world is thus the product of emergence. But the concept of emergence is fraught with controversy and confusion. This book ponders the question of how emergence should be understood within the scientific picture, and whether a complete vision of the world can be attained that includes consciousness

TitlePhysics of collisional plasmas : introduction to high-frequency discharges
Author(s)Michel Moisan;Jacques Pelletier;translation by Graeme Lister
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2012.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteThis text is an introduction to the physics of collisional plasmas, as opposed to plasmas in space. It is intended for graduate students in physics and engineering . The first chapter introduces with progressively increasing detail, the fundamental concepts of plasma physic. The motion of individual charged particles in various configurations of electric and magnetic fields is detailed in the second chapter while the third chapter considers the collective motion of the plasma particles described according to a hydrodynamic model. The fourth chapter is most original in that it introduces a gene

TitleWave Equations in Higher Dimensions
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (298 p.)
Abstract NoteHigher dimensional theories have attracted much attention because they make it possible to reduce much of physics in a concise, elegant fashion that unifies the two great theories of the 20th century: Quantum Theory and Relativity. This book provides an elementary description of quantum wave equations in higher dimensions at an advanced level so as to put all current mathematical and physical concepts and techniques at the reader's disposal. A comprehensive description of quantum wave equations in higher dimensions and their broad range of applications in quantum mechanics is provided, which complements the traditional coverage found in the existing quantum mechanics textbooks and gives scientists a fresh outlook on quantum systems in all branches of physics
Contents NotePart I: Introduction -- Part II: Theory -- Part III: Applications in non-relativistic quantum mechanics -- Part IV: Applications in relativistic quantum mechanics -- Part V: Conclusions and outlooks

TitleElegance and enigma : the quantum interviews
Author(s)Maximilian Schlosshauer (ed.)
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xiii, 311 p.) : ports
Abstract NoteQuantum mechanics is one of mankind's most remarkable intellectual achievements. Stunningly successful and elegant, it challenges our deepest intuitions about the world. For this book, seventeen leading scientists and philosophers, all deeply concerned with understanding quantum mechanics, were interviewed about the central issues. Their responses provide us with an intimate look at the radically different ways of making sense of the theory's strangeness. What is the quantum mechanics about? What is it telling us about nature? Can recent developments, such as quantum information, help lift the
