Constructing reality : quantum theory and particle physics by John H Marburger( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Questions of the fundamental nature of matter continue to inspire and engage our imagination. However, the exciting new concepts of strings, supersymmetry and exotic matter build on ideas that are well known to physicists but mysterious and puzzling to people outside of these research fields. Covering key conceptual developments from the last century, this book provides a background to the bold ideas and challenges faced by physicists today. Quantum theory and the Standard Model of particles are explained with minimal mathematics, and advanced topics, such as gauge theory and quantum field theory, are put into context. With concise, lucid explanations, this book is an essential guide to the world of particle physics"--

Leadership under challenge : information technology R & D in a competitive world : an assessment of the Federal Networking and Information Technology R & D Program by President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States is today the global leader in networking and information technology (NIT). That leadership is essential to U.S. economic prosperity, security, and quality of life. This report presents a formal assessment of the Federal Networking and Information Technology R & D (NITRD) Program, beginning with a review of global networking and information technology competitiveness. The NITRD Program is examined in the broader context of U.S. networking and information technology leadership and global competitiveness in order to provide a current picture of the U.S. competitive stance and an evaluation of how well the NITRD Program is positioned to help sustain and strengthen U.S. leadership in these critical technologies. The report highlights the need to revolutionize postsecondary education and advanced training in NIT fields and to rebalance the Federal NIT R & D portfolio to emphasize more large-scale, long-term, multidisciplinary activities and visionary, high-payoff goals. This report is organized into five chapters. Chapter 1 provides broad context by examining America's global leadership and competitive position in NIT as compared to major current and likely future competitor nations. Chapters 2 and 3 focus on central aspects of the U.S. NIT ecosystem: NIT education and training, the structure of the Federal NIT R & D portfolio, and technology transfer. In Chapter 4, the PCAST discusses specific NIT R & D areas that it has identified as priorities. The report concludes in Chapter 5 with an assessment of the mechanisms through which the NITRD Program is implemented

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Climate Change Science Program for Fiscal Year 2008 describes the activities and plans of the Climate Change Science Program (CCSP), which incorporates the U.S. Global Change Research Program established under the Global Change Research Act of 1990, and the Climate Change Research Initiative that was established by the President in 2001. CCSP coordinates and integrates scientific research on climate and global change supported by 13 participating departments and agencies of the U.S. Government. This Fiscal Year 2009 edition highlights recent advances and progress supported by CCSP-participating agencies in each of the program's research and observational elements, as called for in the Strategic Plan for the U.S. Climate Change Science Program released in July 2003. It provides details on progress towards understanding the ongoing and projected effects of climate change on nature and society, including the interconnected relationships between climate, forests, and wildfire. The document also describes how observational and predictive capabilities are being improved and used to create tools to support decisionmaking at local, regional, and national scales to cope with environmental variability and change. The document outlines how CCSP plans to continue implementation of the Strategic Plan during FY 2008. The program will continue to emphasize work on 21 scientific synthesis and assessment products, three of which have been completed. The remaining products are well underway. CCSP is committed to its mission to facilitate the creation and application of knowledge to the Earth's global environment through research, observations, decision support, and communication

The National Nanotechnology Initiative: Second Assessment and Recommendations of the National Nanotechnology Advisory Panel( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Nanotechnology Advisory Panel (NNAP) was created by the United States Congress in the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act (P.L. 108-153), signed by President Bush on December 3, 2003. The Act required the President to establish or designate an NNAP to review the Federal nanotechnology research and development program. On July 23, 2004, President Bush formally designated the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) to act as the NNAP. The Act that created the NNAP calls for this advisory body to conduct a review of the NNI and report its findings to the President. The Act calls upon the NNAP to assess the trends and developments in nanotechnology, and the strategic direction of the NNI, particularly as it relates to maintaining U.S. leadership in nanotechnology research. The Act also requires comment on NNI program activities, management, coordination, implementation, and whether the program is adequately addressing societal, ethical, legal, environmental, and workforce issues. The Act calls for the NNAP to report on its assessments and to make recommendations for ways to improve the program at least every two years. The Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy is to transmit a copy of the NNAP report to Congress. This is the second report of the NNAP under the Act. Since the first report, increasing attention has been focused on the potential risks of nanotechnology, especially the possible harm to human health and the environment from nanomaterials. In this second assessment, the NNAP paid special attention to the NNI efforts in these areas
The Energy Imperative: Report Update( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The long-term prosperity of the Nation depends on continued innovation in technologies for electric power generation, transportation, and industry. Given the importance of energy security and the pace of recent technological and policy developments, President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) has highlighted progress in energy policy and advanced energy technologies that could significantly enhance U.S. energy security over the next two decades. Overall, since publication of the 2006 report, PCAST has seen notable improvements in energy supply and demand trends, advanced energy technologies, and Federal policies related to energy security. These improvements warrant PCAST's optimism that the Nation's imported oil demand will continue to decrease in coming years. Continued increases in the Nation's R & D investments will be needed, however, to make clean and efficient energy technologies more cost-competitive. In particular, cellulosic biofuels and energy storage technologies for PHEVs and EVs represent key opportunities to displace a large portion of U.S. petroleum consumption. Also, even with energy-efficiency improvements on the grid, these and other new applications may lead to a much larger increase in electricity demand especially in base load power demand than currently projected. Therefore, policy makers should prepare for and help enable a large increase in nuclear power and renewable power generation over the next two decades
