Cacciatori di neutrini
Polo Sud: quasi 3000 metri d'altitudine e 30 gradi sotto zero. In un deserto glaciale, da alcuni anni un'avveniristica installazione scientifica raccoglie dati su improvvisi bagliori blu che si accendono nelle profondità dei ghiacci, sono le tracce del passaggio dei neutrini, le particelle più "timide" dell'universo, le più sfuggenti ed elusive, tanto difficili da studiare quanto affascinanti. Dalle prime ipotesi teoriche sulla loro esistenza fino agli esperimenti più recenti, "Cacciatori di neutrini" ripercorre le tappe di questa ricerca, che negli ultimi decenni ha coinvolto schiere di scienziati impegnati a svelare i segreti sulla natura della materia e sulla struttura...

Calculating the Cosmos
Ian Stewart's up-to-the-minute guide to the cosmos moves from the formation of the Earth and its Moon to the planets and asteroids of the solar system and from there out into the galaxy and the universe. He describes the architecture of space and time, dark matter and dark energy, how galaxies form, why stars implode, how everything began, and how it will end. He considers parallel universes, what forms extra-terrestrial life might take, and the likelihood of Earth being hit by an asteroid.<br />Mathematics, Professor Stewart shows, has been the driving force in astronomy and cosmology since the ancient Babylonians. He describes how Kepler's work on planetary orbits led N...

Calculus On Manifolds
This little book is especially concerned with those portions of ”advanced calculus” in which the subtlety of the concepts and methods makes rigor difficult to attain at an elementary level. The approach taken here uses elementary versions of modern methods found in sophisticated mathematics. The formal prerequisites include only a term of linear algebra, a nodding acquaintance with the notation of set theory, and a respectable first-year calculus course (one which at least mentions the least upper bound (sup) and greatest lower bound (inf) of a set of real numbers). Beyond this a certain (perhaps latent) rapport with abstract mathematics will be found almost essential.

Caldera Volcanism
This volume aims at providing answers to some puzzling questions concerning the formation and the behavior of collapse calderas by exploring our current understanding of these complex geological processes. Addressed are problems such as:- How do collapse calderas form? - What are the conditions to create fractures and slip along them to initiate caldera collapse and when are these conditions fulfilled? - How do these conditions relate to explosive volcanism?- Most products of large caldera-forming eruptions show evidence for pre-eruptive reheating. Is this a pre-requisite to produce large volume eruptions and large calderas?- What are the time-scales behind caldera proces...

Camel
A distinct symbol of the desert and the Middle East, the camel was once unkindly described as “half snake, half folding bedstead.” But in the eyes of many the camel is a creature of great beauty. This is most evident in the Arab world, where the camel has played a central role in the historical development of Arabic society—where an elaborate vocabulary and extensive literature have been devoted to it.&#xa0;<br /><br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; In <i>Camel</i>, Robert Irwin explores why the camel has fascinated so many cultures, including those cultivated in locales where camels are not indigenous. Here, he traces the history of th...

Campbell's Atlas of Oil and Gas Depletion
<b><i>Campbell's Atlas of Oil and Gas Depletion, Second Edition,</i></b>&#xa0;is the product of a half-century of critical analysis and updating of &#xa0;data on the status of oil and gas depletion by country, region and &#xa0;the world as a whole. Separate analyses of &#xa0;conventional and non-conventional oil and gas, which are depleting at different rates and costs, show when these critical energy sources peak and decline. The Atlas also summarizes the history and political circumstances of each country to assess the impact on oil and gas production and reserves. It contrasts the First Half of the Oil Age, which saw the rapid expansion of the world economy, allowing t...

Can Neuroscience Change Our Minds?
Neuroscience, with its astounding new technologies, is uncovering the workings of the brain and with this perhaps the mind. The 'neuro' prefix spills out into every area of life, from neuroaesthetics to neuroeconomics, neurogastronomy and neuroeducation. With its promise to cure physical and social ills, government sees neuroscience as a tool to increase the 'mental capital' of the children of the deprived and workless. It sets aside intensifying poverty and inequality, instead claiming that basing children's rearing and education on brain science will transform both the child's and the nation's health and wealth. <br /><br /> Leading critic of such neuropretensions, neur...

Can Science End War?
Free-roaming killer drones stalk the battlespace looking for organic targets. Human combatants are programmed to feel no pain. Highpower microwave beams detonate munitions, jam communications, and cook internal organs.<br /><br />Is this vision of future war possible, or even inevitable? In this timely new book, Everett Carl Dolman examines the relationship between science and war. Historically, science has played an important role in ending wars – think of the part played by tanks in breaching trench warfare in the First World War, or atom bombs in hastening the Japanese surrender in the Second World War – but to date this has only increased the danger and destructivenes...

Can Science Fix Climate Change?
Climate change seems to be an insurmountable problem. Political solutions have so far had little impact. Some scientists are now advocating the so-called ‘Plan B’, a more direct way of reducing the rate of future warming by reflecting more sunlight back to space, creating a thermostat in the sky.&#xa0; &#xa0; In this book, Mike Hulme argues against this kind of hubristic techno-fix. Drawing upon a distinguished career studying the science, politics and ethics of climate change, he shows why using science to fix the global climate is undesirable, ungovernable and unattainable. Science and technology should instead serve the more pragmatic goals of increasing societal resil...

Canadian Spacewalkers
Spacewalking is a physically exhausting, mentally rigorous endeavor. It is so difficult, only three Canadians have ever succeeded: Chris Hadfield, Steve MacLean, and Dave Williams. Hadfield completed the first Canadian spacewalk and installed the Canadarm 2 on the International Space Station, while Williams holds the record for the longest spacewalk by a Canadian. And Steve MacLean, former head of the Canadian Space Agency, was one of Canada’s original six astronauts.<br /><br />But what is it really like to leap out into space with only the thin fabric of your suit between you and the universe? In <i>Canadian Spacewalkers,</i> author Bob McDonald compiles each of the spa...

Cancer
Microevolution explains what cancer is, how it develops and how to eradicate it. Cancer occurs in multi-celled organisms when cells escape the body&#39;s controls and behave like their single-celled ancestors. Such changes, triggered by oxidative damage, result in faulty cell division. Animals and plants have developed ways to stop their cells reverting to primitive forms. Hence, anticancer substances are common throughout nature. Therapies based on these take advantage of metabolic differences between cancer cells and healthy cells, to destroy cancer while helping healthy cells. Clinical trials are needed to test such non-toxic therapies. Biological research suggests ...

Cancer All You Should Know
Excellent natural treatments abound… and at a fraction of the cost of conventional cancer care. Thousands of people each year are being healed of cancer and other major diseases by natural means which have decades of success bringing vibrant health back to “terminally” diagnosed cancer patients. This is precisely what happened in my case.<br/> Each day over 1,600 Americans die from cancer.1 Sadly, many of these deaths are absolutely unnecessary. Conventional oncology holds tightly to a limited tool box which includes deadly chemotherapy, radiation, drugs, unnecessary or invasive surgeries, and other such toxic treatments. Most of us have family members, friends, or acquai...

Cancer Patient
&#34;Cancer Patient&#34; is the true story of the author&#39;s encounter with cancer, from initial investigations through to diagnosis, followed by chemotherapy then radiation therapy. In this medical memoir, Hugh Cook tells of his experience with non-Hodgkin&#39;s lymphoma of the central nervous system - that is to say, cancer of the brain and spinal cord. In addition to the medical details, the book includes some experiences which provided a context for this experience, including the birth of the author&#39;s daughter. The book also includes some poems and a couple of short stories, clearly marked as such, one being very short, the other a little longer.

Candide et le physicien
&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Les avancées considérables de la physique d’après guerre n’ont – on le sait – été possibles qu’au prix d’une vraie rupture entre elle et la physique dite «classique». A quels changements cette rupture nous contraint-elle en ce qui concerne des notions essentielles, telles celles d’espace, de temps, d’objet et d’objectivité ? Quelles en sont les incidences quant à la portée de la connaissance, au rôle de la conscience, aux relations entre science et ontologie ?<br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Ce sont là des questions de fond, fort délicates, auxquelles les personnes de tendance quelque peu philosophique sont plus sensibles que ne le sont les physicie...
