Constructing reality : quantum theory and particle physics by John H Marburger ( Book )
11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This picture of the winding state vector glosses over the subtlety that we freely choose when as well as where or what to measure. The Dirac view separates the abstract state vector from all of these contingent choices. Moreover, the principles of relativity demand that we treat when and where (time and space) on a more or less equal footing. Thus a better choice for an omniscient picture corresponding to the classical 'tapestry of world lines' is a Master State Vector for all of nature in an abstract Hilbert space 'outside of space and time' whose coordinates bear labels for time as well as for distance or momentum and other properties. In this picture space-time, being a property of the detectors, not the underlying stuff, is a macroscopic phenomenon. For historical reasons, the picture in which the state vector depends on time is called the Schrodinger picture, and the alternative static case is called the Heisenberg picture"--

The National Nanotechnology Initiative: Second Assessment and Recommendations of the National Nanotechnology Advisory Panel ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 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 1 WorldCat member library 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
Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Climate Change Science Program for Fiscal Year 2009 ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Climate Change Science Program for Fiscal Year 2009 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, and later modified in the 2008 CCSP Revised Research Plan. The document describes a wide range of activities. It provides details on progress towards understanding the ongoing and projected effects of climate change on nature and society, such as the relationship between climate change and shifts in storm tracks and how this may affect water availability in the southwestern United States. 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 report also describes the program's 21 scientific synthesis and assessment products and its recently completed Scientific Assessment of the Effects of Global Change on the United States. To date, eight of the synthesis and assessment products have been completed and the remaining products will be completed in the coming months. These products are being widely disseminated and briefed to stakeholders, including Congress. They are also providing important input to CCSP's ongoing strategic planning

Science and Technology: A Foundation for Homeland Security ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The United States has made significant strides to protect the homeland since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Since those tragic events, the Federal Government has responded in numerous ways to protect against future attacks. Science and technology (S & T) have played a vital part in the progress made to date, and will continue to inform and enhance the country's homeland security efforts. "Science and Technology: A Foundation for Homeland Security" details the numerous accomplishments of S & T that have helped to secure the homeland. This report builds upon the "National Strategy for Homeland Security," released by the President on July 16, 2002, which set forth a sound framework to reduce America's vulnerability and to respond with improved agility and effectiveness to future terrorist attacks. Since that time, much has been accomplished, and still more has been initiated. Some key accomplishments highlighted in this document are as follows: (1) Bolstering border security through the development and deployment of nuclear detection equipment along the U.S. border, airports, and seaports to detect, deter, and ultimately prevent the trafficking of nuclear and radioactive materials; (2) Providing an early warning system for bio-threats through Project BioWatch, a cooperative effort among the Department of Homeland Security, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Laboratory Response Network; and (3) Speeding development and procurement of new medical countermeasures against current and future chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear terrorist threats through Project BioShield, an initiative signed into law by the President in July 2004. Although by no means exhaustive, the efforts described in this report typify the progress that has been made in the key research areas designated as priority goals by the George W. Bush Administration in the "National Strategy."

Leadership Under Challenge: Information Technology R & D in a Competitive World. An Assessment of the Federal Networking and Information Technology R & D Program ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
