Boom!
Black powder, the world's first chemical explosive, was originally developed during the Tang dynasty in China.It was a crude mixture at first, but over time chemists discovered the optimum proportion of sulfur, charcoal, and nitrates, as well as the best way to mix them for a complete and powerful reaction. Author and chemistry buff Simon Quellen Field takes readers on a decades-long journey through the history of things that go boom, from the early days of black powder to today's modern plastic explosives. Not just the who, when, and why, but also the how. How did Chinese alchemists come to create black powder? What accidents led to the discovery of high explosiv...

Boreal and Temperate Trees in a Changing Climate
This book provides an overview of how boreal and temperate tree species have adapted their annual development cycle to the seasonally varying climatic conditions. &#xa0;Therefore, &#xa0;the frost hardy dormant phase, and the susceptible growth phase, are synchronized with the seasonality of the climate.<br /><br />The volume discusses the annual cycle, including various attributes such as timing of bud burst and other phenological events, seasonality of photosynthetic capacity or the frost hardiness of the trees.<br /> &#xa0;<br /><br /> During the last few decades dynamic ecophysiological models have been used increasingly in studies of the annual cycle, particularly whe...

Borehole Climatology
Climate for the 21st century is expected to be considerably different from the present and recent past. Industrialization growth combined with the increasing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere and massive deforestation are well above the values over the past several decades and are expected to further grow. Air temperature is rising rapidly well as does the weather variability producing frequent extreme events. Six of the ten warmest years occurred in the 1990s. Temperatures predicted for the 21st century ranges well above the present day value. The time period of the last 100-200 years covered by the direct meteorological observations is too short and does not provide m...

Borges y la memoria
«El trabajo de Quian Quiroga demuestra su conocimiento de la obra de<br />Borges y va dándonos de una manera inefable la unión o la premonición<br />entre esa obra y su especialidad, la neurociencia». María Kodama<br /><br />La hiperconectividad del nuevo siglo determina, nos guste o no, un flujo<br />informativo permanente: vivimos pegados a una pantalla, recibiendo<br />datos. Si no es la TV es el mail, o Facebook, o Twitter, o la<br />computadora, o el sms que pasa de goteo a temporal. «Funes el memorioso»<br />se ha hecho realidad: la información abruma y no hay tiempo para<br />detenerse a pensar. Desde esa perspectiva, el investigador argentino<br />Rodrigo Quian Qu...

Borrowed Knowledge
What happens to scientific knowledge when researchers outside the natural sciences bring elements of the latest trend across disciplinary boundaries for their own purposes? Researchers in fields from anthropology to family therapy and traffic planning employ the concepts, methods, and results of chaos theory to harness the disciplinary prestige of the natural sciences, to motivate methodological change or conceptual reorganization within their home discipline, and to justify public policies and aesthetic judgments.<br /><br />Using the recent explosion in the use (and abuse) of chaos theory, <i>Borrowed Knowledge and the Challenge of Learning across Disciplines</i> examin...

Bottled Lightning
The sleek electronic tools that have become so ubiquitous—laptops, iPods, eReaders, and smart phones—are all powered by lithium batteries. Chances are you've got some lithium on your person right now. But aside from powering a mobile twenty first-century lifestyle, the third element on the periodic table may also hold the key to an environmentally sustainable, oil-independent future. From electric cars to a "smart" power grid that can actually store electricity, letting us harness the powers of the sun and the wind and use them when we need them, lithium—a metal half as dense as water, created in the first minutes after the Big Bang and found primarily in some of the most...

Bottled Water Production In the United States
While all ground water withdrawals should be managed in a sustainable and compatible manner, the study concluded that concerns about the bottled water industry&#39;s use of ground water are not science-based. Furthermore, effective management of ground water resources may be better accomplished by focusing on multi-jurisdictional ground water management policies that are based on sound science, consider all users, and treat all users equitably.

Bottleneck: Our human interface with reality. The disturbing and exciting implications of its true nature.
Bottleneck is about “the Narrowness of Now”, the shockingly low information rate of human learning, our learning bottleneck. It is what we discover when we dare to apply the science of information to the psychology of perception and learning.<br />The process of learning is intrinsic to every human life yet we understand surprisingly little about it. Bottleneck is aimed at anyone interested in the science behind our everyday human experience and how we learn about the world around us. It reveals insights that will forever change your perspective on the world and people around you.<br />Though the world we inhabit and experience through our senses appears incredibly detail...

Bottom-Up Self-Organization in Supramolecular Soft Matter
This book presents the general concepts of self-organized spatio-temporal ordering processes. These concepts are demonstrated via prototypical examples of recent advances in materials science. Particular emphasis is on nanoscale soft matter in physics, chemistry, biology and biomedicine. The questions addressed embrace a broad spectrum of complex nonlinear phenomena, ranging from self-assembling near the thermodynamical equilibrium to dissipative structure formation far from equilibrium. Their mutual interplay gives rise to increasing degrees of hierarchical order. Analogues are pointed out, differences characterized and efforts are made to reveal common features in the m...

Bouillon de culture
De même que l'organisation des cellules aboutit à des ensembles de plus en plus compliqués qui exigent une hiérarchisation et une spécialisation de plus en plus grandes, le groupe social évolue du plus simple au plus complexe. Ainsi une conscience de groupe tend à se substituer de plus en plus à la conscience individuelle. D'où conflit entre la collectivité et l'individu et menace d'une rupture d'équilibre. Le sort de l'humanité est-il fatalement lié aux réactions de la «&#xa0;supraconscience&#xa0;» de cette «&#xa0;biosphère&#xa0;» dont parle Teilhard de Chardin&#xa0;? Et, dans ce cas, comment éviter que l'humanité connaisse le sort du bouillon de culture qui, enfermé dan...

Boundaries of a Complex World
The central theme of this book is the extent to which the structure of the free dynamical boundaries of a system controls the evolution of the system as a whole. Applying three orthogonal types of thinking - mathematical, constructivist and morphological, it illustrates these concepts using applications to selected problems from the social and life sciences, as well as economics.<br><br>&#xa0;In a broader context, it introduces and reviews some modern mathematical approaches to the science of complex systems. Standard modeling approaches (based on non-linear differential equations, dynamic systems, graph theory, cellular automata, stochastic processes, or information theo...

Boundary Management
"Business architecture" is a concept for optimizing corporate boundaries aimed at realizing targeted business models and corporate system design involving stakeholders. To optimize the corporate boundaries, companies must partially and/or wholly optimize the individual management elements s (strategy, organization, technology, operation, and leadership) comprising the corporate system that has achieved congruence with its environment. The type of management concerned with optimizing these corporate boundaries and the corporate systems that consist of individual management elements is referred to in this book as "boundary management." <br /> <br />The concept of&nbsp; "bo...

Bounds on the Effective Theory of Gravity in Models of Particle Physics and Cosmology
The effective theory of quantum gravity coupled to models of particle physics is being probed by cutting edge experiments in both high energy physics (searches for extra dimensions) and cosmology (testing models of inflation). This thesis derives new bounds that may be placed on these models both theoretically and experimentally. In models of extra dimensions, the internal consistency of the theories at high energies are investigated via perturbative unitarity bounds. Similarly it is shown that recent models of Higgs inflation suffer from a breakdown of perturbative unitarity during the inflationary period. In addition, the thesis uses the latest LHC data to derive the fi...
