''So effortless to appreciate but so dense with wisdom that you will by no means examine waves on a seashore a similar manner again.''—San Francisco Chronicle
''One of the easiest renowned technology books.''—The Kansas urban Star
''Perfect for the weekend scientist.''—The Richmond News-Leader
A famous physicist and renowned technology author heads for the seashore to respond to universal and unusual questions on the sea. James S. Trefil, writer of Dover guides' The second of production: substantial Bang Physics from sooner than the 1st Millisecond to the current Universe, explains why the ocean is salty, how bubbles shape at the water's floor, the place waves come from, and different curiosities of the marine international. Dr. Trefil attracts upon his distinct reward for clarifying complicated clinical ideas and the theories at the back of them to provide a story that's transparent, available, and completely compelling.

For many years experiments carried out on area stations like MIR and the ISS were amassing info in lots of fields of study within the traditional sciences, drugs and engineering. the eu Union-sponsored ULISSE venture fascinated with exploring the wealth of detailed experimental info supplied through revealing uncooked and metadata from those experiences through a web Portal.
Devoted to Arto Salomaa, a towering determine of theoretical machine technological know-how, at the social gathering of his sixty fifth birthday, this publication is a tribute to him on behalf of the theoretical machine technological know-how group. The contributions are written via across the world well-known scientists and canopy so much of Salomaa's many learn components.
This publication constitutes the completely refereed post-conference complaints of the 4th foreign convention on Intelligence technology and large facts Engineering, IScIDE 2013, held in Beijing, China, in July/August 2013. The 111 papers offered have been rigorously peer-reviewed and chosen from 390 submissions.
