Long life to your children! : a portrait of High Albania by Stan Sherer( )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long considered the most mysterious and inaccessible country in Europe, Albania is still little known and poorly understood. The recent political and financial crisis brought about by collapsing pyramid investment schemes is only the latest example of Albania's unique situation. To discover how Albanians see the world and their place in it, Stan Sherer and Marjorie Senechal spent three months in the northern mountains, photographing and interviewing people of all ages and all walks of life. In Long Life to Your Children! (the title is an Albanian toast), ordinary men and women invite the reader into their homes and talk about their work, their children, their hopes, and the problems they face as their country emerges into the modern world after nearly fifty years of isolationist communism." "The text includes introductory chapters on Albanian history and customs, as well as several photographic essays that convey a vivid sense of place. The book captures the beauty of the country, the warmth of the people and the rigors of contemporary Albanian life."--Jacket

Quasicrystals and geometry by Marjorie Senechal( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quasicrystals and Geometry brings together for the first time the many strands of contemporary research in quasicrystal geometry and weaves them into a coherent whole. The author describes the historical and scientific context of this work, and carefully explains what has been proved and what is conjectured. This, together with a bibliography of over 250 references, provides a solid background for further study." "The discovery in 1984 of crystals with 'forbidden' symmetry posed fascinating and challenging problems in many fields of mathematics, as well as in the solid state sciences. By demonstrating that 'order' need not be synonymous with periodicity, it raised the question of what we mean by 'order', and how orderliness in a geometric structure is reflected in measures of order such as diffraction spectra. Increasingly, mathematicians and physicists are becoming intrigued by the quasicrystal phenomenon, and the result has been an exponential growth in the literature on the geometry of diffraction patterns, the behavior of the Fibonacci and other nonperiodic sequences, and the fascinating properties of the Penrose tilings and their many relatives." "This first-ever detailed account of quasicrystal geometry will be of great value to mathematicians at all levels with an interest in quasicrystals and geometry, and will also be of interest to graduate students and researchers in solid state physics, crystallography and materials science."--Jacket
Shaping space : exploring polyhedra in nature, art, and the geometrical imagination by Marjorie Senechal( )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molecules, galaxies, art galleries, sculptures, viruses, crystals, architecture, and more: Shaping Space--Exploring Polyhedra in Nature, Art, and the Geometrical Imagination is an exuberant survey of polyhedra and at the same time a hands-on, mind-boggling introduction to one of the oldest and most fascinating branches of mathematics. Some of the world's leading geometers present a treasury of ideas, history, and culture to make the beauty of polyhedra accessible to students, teachers, polyhedra hobbyists, and professionals such as architects and designers, painters and sculptors, biologists and chemists, crystallographers, physicists and earth scientists, engineers and model builders, mathematicians and computer scientists. The creative chapters by more than 25 authors explore almost every imaginable side of polyhedra. From the beauty of natural forms to the monumental constructions made by man, there is something to fascinate every reader. The book is dedicated to the memory of the legendary geometer H.S.M. Coxeter and the multifaceted design scientist Arthur L. Loeb. Contributing Authors: P. Ash, T.F. Banchoff, J. Baracs, E. Bolker, C. Chieh, R. Connelly, H.S.M. Coxeter, H. Crapo, E. Demaine, M.

The Narcotic Farm( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Narrated and scored by former inmate Wayne Kramer, the film tells the story of this long forgotten American institution through the voices of the former addicts who spent years of their lives locked within its walls. The film also features candid interviews with former government doctors at 'Narco' who reflect on both the challenges of treating addicts there and the research achievements made possible in a total institution populated by hardcore drug addicts. Astonishing, government-produced 16mm films and photographs take viewers back to the grounds and inside the walls of The Narcotic Farm, highlighting its thriving jazz scene and revealing publicly for the first time the experience of prisoners involved in this world famous drug research program."--Container
