7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this highly accessible book, leading scientists from around the world give a general overview of research advances in their subject areas within the field of Astronomy. They describe some of their own cutting-edge research and give their visions of the future. Re-written in a popular and well-illustrated style, the articles are mainly derived from scholarly and authoritative papers published in special issues of the Royal Societys Philosophical Transactions, the worlds longest running scientific journal. Carefully selected by the journals editor, topics include the Big Bang creation of t

Metal-organic and organic molecular magnets by Royal Society Discussion Meeting on Metal-Organic and Organic Molecular Magnets ( )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Traditionally, magnetic materials have been metals or, if inorganic compounds such as oxides, of continuous lattice type. However, in recent years chemists have synthesized increasing numbers of crystalline solids based on molecular building blocks in the form of coordination and organometallic complexes or purely organic molecules, which exhibit spontaneous magnetization. In striking contrast to conventional magnets, these materials are made from solutions close to room temperature rather than by metallurgical or ceramic methods. This book, which originates from contributions to a Discussion Meeting of The Royal Society of London, brings together many of the leading international practitioners in the field, who survey their own recent work and place it in the context of the wider fields of magnetism and supramolecular chemistry. All aspects of molecular-based magnets are addressed, including synthesis, structure-property relations and physical properties. Contents include details of the characterization of the first purely organic ferromagnet, the synthesis of high coercivity materials and a unique description of new materials with Curie temperatures well above ambient. A coherent survey of this rapidly developing field for the more general reader, Metal-Organic and Organic Molecular Magnets will also be welcomed by researchers and lecturers in materials science and inorganic or solid state chemistry

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A introdução a uma série de onze artigos em medidas e estimativas da biodiversidade, oito questões foram colocadas: O que é biodiversidade? Biodiversidade é somente o número de espécies em uma área? Se biodiversidade é mais do que o número de espécies como pode ser medida? Todas as espécies têm o mesmo peso? Medidas de biodiversidade incluem variância genética infraespecífica? Algumas espécies contribuem mais que outras para a biodiversidade em uma área? Existem indicadores úteis de áreas onde a biodiversidade é alta? E a extensão da biodiversidade em grupos taxonômicos podem ser estimados por extrapolação? Além disso, o conceito moderno de diversidade biológica é atribuído a Elliot R. Norse e seus colegas

"In this genuinely productive interdisciplinary dialogue, engineering scientists, archaeologists and historians discuss how recent exciting developments in imaging, image analysis, and image display/diffusion can be applied to three-dimensional objects of material culture from the classical world, ranging from inscribed writing tablets to buildings and urban sites." "The fifteen papers explore the ways in which the scientific contributors and the historians are thinking about subjectivity of interpretation, visual cognition, and the need to improve the presentation of evidence so as to feed directly back into their own scientific thinking and to encourage genuine innovation in developing methods of image-enhancement and the interpretation of objects."--BOOK JACKET
