Quadrants of the Corporeal
The universe has the resources to create conscious beings with cognitive powers. We are the living proof. But what if these resources are limited in such a way that the universe cannot create a being with sufficient cognitive powers to fully comprehend any corporeal object—not acorns or water molecules, let alone intelligent animals. Quadrants of the Corporeal: Reflections on the Foundations of Experience presents reasons to believe that precisely this is the case, and explains why this cosmic fact makes “the mind-body problem” or “the hard problem of consciousness” impossible to solve. No being that this universe can make can understand what makes conscious beings consci...

Qualitative Theory of Dynamical Systems, Tools and Applications for Economic Modelling
The book presents the lectures delivered during a short course held at Urbino University in summer 2015 on qualitative theory of dynamical systems, included in the activities of the COST Action IS1104 “The EU in the new economic complex geography: models, tools and policy evaluation”. It provides a basic introduction to dynamical systems and optimal control both in continuous and discrete time, as well as some numerical methods and applications in economic modelling.<br /><br />Economic and social systems are intrinsically dynamic, characterized by interdependence, nonlinearity and complexity, and these features can only be approached using a qualitative analysis based on...

Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations
Computational resources have developed to the level that, for the first time, it is becoming possible to apply large-eddy simulation (LES) to turbulent flow problems of realistic complexity. Many examples can be found in technology and in a variety of natural flows. This puts issues related to assessing, assuring, and predicting the quality of LES into the spotlight. Several LES studies have been published in the past, demonstrating a high level of accuracy with which turbulent flow predictions can be attained, without having to resort to the excessive requirements on computational resources imposed by direct numerical simulations. However, the setup and use of turbulent ...

Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations II
The second Workshop on "Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations", QLES2009, was held at the University of Pisa from September 9 to September 11, 2009. Its predecessor, QLES2007, was organized in 2007 in Leuven (Belgium). The focus of QLES2009 was on issues related to predicting, assessing and assuring the quality of LES. The main goal of QLES2009 was to enhance the knowledge on error sources and on their interaction in LES and to devise criteria for the prediction and optimization of simulation quality, by bringing together mathematicians, physicists and engineers and providing a platform specifically addressing these aspects for LES. Contributions were made by...

Quality Assurance for Environmental Analysis
Quality assurance (QA) for environmental analysis is a growing feature of the nineties as is illustrated by the number of QA guidelines and systems which are being implemented nowadays. There is, however, often a huge gap between the implementation and respect of QA guidelines and the technical approach undertaken to improve and validate new analytical methods. This is particularly true for complex determinations involving multi-step methodologies such as those used in speciation and organic analyses.Quality assurance may also be considered from the technical point of view, which is the focus of this book. The techniques used in different analytical fields (inorganic, spe...

Quality by Design for Biopharmaceuticals
<b>The concepts, applications, and practical issues of Quality by Design</b> <br />Quality by Design (QbD) is a new framework currently being implemented by the FDA, as well as EU and Japanese regulatory agencies, to ensure better understanding of the process so as to yield a consistent and high-quality pharmaceutical product. QbD breaks from past approaches in assuming that drug quality cannot be tested into products; rather, it must be built into every step of the product creation process.<br /><br /><i>Quality by Design: Perspectives and Case Studies</i> presents the first systematic approach to QbD in the biotech industry. A comprehensive resource, it combines an in-d...

Quality Quantification Theory
What is the meaning of good? The word good, embodies a concept that enables me(everybody) to differentiate everything that surrounds me in life. Good is the quantity of the concept `s quality. The word quality has not a scientific definition .Everybody interpret this word according his mind (empirically). For the set of people the concept and the word quality dos not exist. The lack of scientific definition for the quality is the reason of: The political, economical and social sciences confusion and economic crises. In this book the reader will find the definition of the basic concepts of goods like: Goodness of goods (quality of goods), good goods (quality quantity of g...

Quand la dent mène l'enquête...
Dans cet ouvrage digne d'un Sherlock Holmes ou d'un Hercule Poirot, l'auteur nous entraîne avec frénésie à la découverte d'enquêtes bien réelles concernant des personnalités du passé. De Hatshepsout à Che Guevara ou encore J.F. Kennedy, en passant notamment par Henri IV et Voltaire, il nous révèle les grandes supercheries que l'étude des dents a dénoncées ainsi que les vérités que leur examen a confirmées comme étant authentiques. Une approche palpitante d'odontologie légale et des principes des grandes investigations de police scientifique.

Quand la mafia se légalise
La mafia est, d’ores et déjà, très infiltrée dans l’économie légale : pour la seule Italie, on estime son chiffre d’affaires à 135 milliards d’euros. Ce faisant, et c’est ce qui la rend singulière dans la galaxie du crime organisé, elle recherche moins le profit que le pouvoir. Le temps qui passe la renforce : la mafia est une organisation pérenne qui sait s’adapter à des changements majeurs de paradigme – elle a ainsi survécu sans dommage au passage du féodalisme au capitalisme en Sicile ou du socialisme au capitalisme en Russie. Sur ce sujet, les économistes sont bien silencieux, car le modèle dominant est incapable de percevoir les caractéristiques du système mafieux. ...

Quand la terre tremblait
Les tremblements de terre, image même de la fin du monde, ont de tout temps suscité terreur et questionnement. Ce livre retrace l’histoire au cours de laquelle philosophes et savants assignent aux séismes leur caractère d’événements naturels et non plus de prodiges, et comment ils ont cherché à en comprendre les causes. Quelles représentations, quelles explications les hommes, depuis l’Antiquité, en ont-ils trouvé ? Cette histoire, c’est celle de l’humanité qui n’a jamais accepté de subir sans chercher à comprendre.<br> Emanuela Guidoboni est historienne de la sismicité (SGA, Bologne) et membre de l’Academia Europea.<br> Jean-Paul Poirier est physicien émérite de l’Instit...

Quand les mots manquent... la violence explose
Cet essai sur le passage à l'acte se veut un questionnement sur ce qui fait que l'on passe à l'acte (ou pas) dans une situation insupportable, difficile à gérer. L'acte est un appel au secours, une quête de sens. La parole permettait de de désamorcer l'acte. Émaillée d'anecdotes, de fragments d'histoires singulières, cette lecture non exhaustive de la violence incite à la réflexion et ouvre quelques pistes sur un phénomène qui prend de l'ampleur.

Quantifying Environmental Impact Assessments Using Fuzzy Logic
Environmental impact assessments are required for a wide range of projects throughout the world. These assessments have increasingly involved complex, political decision-making and incorporated values and beliefs of both stakeholders and interested parties. However, the results are often ineffective because values and beliefs are not easily quantifiable, and decisions are considered subjective. This analysis recognizes these problems and proposes practical methods based on fuzzy logic that will enable people preparing assessments to define terms and quantify opinions and input so that they are agreed upon by all involved parties. Fuzzy logic also quantifies the complex en...
