Phase Diagram and Magnetic Excitations of BaFe2-xNixAs2: A Neutron Scattering Study By Xingye Lu
English | PDF | 2017 | 127 Pages | ISBN : 9811049971 | 7.4 MB
This book studies the structural, magnetic and electronic properties of, as well as magnetic excitations in, high-temperature BaFe2-xNixAs2 superconductors using neutron diffraction and neutron spectroscopic methods. It describes the precise determination of the phase diagram of BaFe2-xNixAs2, which demonstrates strong magnetoelastic coupling and avoided quantum criticality driven by short-range incommensurate antiferromagnetic order, showing cluster spin glass behavior.
Theory of Semigroups and Applications By Kalyan B. Sinha, Sachi Srivastava
English | PDF | 2017 | 176 Pages | ISBN : 9811048649 | 1.75 MB
The book presents major topics in semigroups, such as operator theory, partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, probability and statistics and classical and quantum mechanics, and applications. Along with a systematic development of the subject, the book emphasises on the explorations of the contact areas and interfaces, supported by the presentations of explicit computations, wherever feasible. Designed into seven chapters and three appendixes, the book targets to the graduate and senior undergraduate students of mathematics, as well as researchers in the respective areas.
Microbial Biomass Process Technologies and Management By Basanta Kumara Behera, Ajit Varma
English | PDF | 2017 | 321 Pages | ISBN : 3319539124 | 10.7 MB
This book describes how microbes can be used as effective and sustainable resources to meet the current challenge of finding suitable and economical solutions for biopharmaceuticals, enzymes, food additives, nutraceuticals, value added biochemicals and microbial fuels, and discusses various aspects of microbial regulatory activity and its applications.
Foodsaving in Europe: At the Crossroad of Social Innovation By Simone Baglioni, Francesca Calò, Paola Garrone, Mario Molteni
English | PDF | 2017 | 165 Pages | ISBN : 3319565540 | 3 MB
This book provides comparative, multi-disciplinary research on the surplus food distribution in Europe and its relation to food poverty, with a focus on the interaction of for-profit and non-profit organisations. It offers an informed and rich discussion in understanding the collaboration between profit and non-profit organisations involved in food recovery dynamics, and provides understanding as to how the two types of players create effective, innovative and sustainable processes.
Civic Education and Liberal Democracy: Making Post-Normative Citizens in Normative Political Spaces By Peter Strandbrink
English | PDF | 2017 | 245 Pages | ISBN : 3319557971 | 1.9 MB
This book explores the inherent tension in civic education. There is a surging belief in contemporary European society that liberal democracy should work harder to reproduce the civic and normative setups of national populations through public education. The cardinal notion is that education remains the best means to accomplish this end, and educational regimes appropriate tools to make the young more tolerant, civic, democratic, communal, cosmopolitan, and prone to engaged activism.
State, Nationalism, and Islamization: Historical Analysis of Turkey and Pakistan By Raja M. Ali Saleem
English | PDF | 2017 | 311 Pages | ISBN : 331954005X | 12.7 MB
This book argues that Islam’s role in state nationalism is the best predictor of the Islamization of government using two most different cases: Turkey, which was an aggressively secular country until recently, and Pakistan, a country that is synonymous with Islamization. It establishes a causal link between Islam’s role in state nationalism and Islamization of government during various periods of the history of both countries.
All the Wonder that Would Be: Exploring Past Notions of the Future By Stephen Webb
English | EPUB | 2017 | 344 Pages | ISBN : 3319517589 | 3.5 MB
It has been argued that science fiction (SF) gives a kind of weather forecast – not the telling of a fortune but rather the rough feeling of what the future might be like. The intention in this book is to consider some of these bygone forecasts made by SF and to use this as a prism through which to view current developments in science and technology.
Fish on the Move: Fishing Between Discourses and Borders in the Northern Adriatic By Nataša Rogelja, Alenka Janko Spreizer
English | PDF | 2017 | 218 Pages | ISBN : 331951895X | 3.31 MB
This book analyses the relation between different discourses and actors through an ethnographic approach, showing not only how fishermen in Slovenia respond to international political economy, how they struggle to survive but also how they generate small changes. Fishing in the northeastern part of the Adriatic Sea makes for a substantial economy anchored in many stories.
Creative Economies in Peripheral Regions By Patrick Collins, James A. Cunningham
English | PDF | 2017 | 242 Pages | ISBN : 3319521640 | 9.5 MB
Economies are dynamic entities and subject to constant flux. Driven by changing tastes, new ways to make and disruptive innovations, new routes of economic development present themselves at ever increasing rates. This study is concerned with the rise of the creative economy. UNCTAD has marked the emergence of the creative economy across the globe and noted its resilience in the face of recent economic turmoil. Here, the authors intend to bring the level of analysis down to the regional and firm level by uncovering the extent of the creative economy in some of Europe’s most peripheral regions.
