Mechanics: From Theory to Computation: Essays in Honor of by S. S. Antman (auth.)

By S. S. Antman (auth.)

Starting in 1996, a series of articles seemed within the magazine of Nonlinear technology devoted to the reminiscence of 1 of its unique editors, Juan-Carlos Simo, utilized Me­ chanics, Stanford collage. unfortunately, Juan-Carlos passed on to the great beyond at an early age in 1994. We misplaced an excellent colleague and an excellent individual. those articles are accumulated within the current quantity. lots of them are up to date and corrected specifically for this celebration. those essays are in parts of medical curiosity of Juan-Carlos, together with mechanics (particles, inflexible our bodies, fluids, elasticity, plastic­ ity, etc.), geometry, utilized dynamics, and, after all, computation. His pursuits have been tremendous broad-he didn't see barriers among computation, arithmetic, me­ chanics, and dynamics, and, in that experience, he preferably mirrored the spirit of the magazine and lots of of the main intriguing components of present medical curiosity. Juan-Carlos was once a type of pick out and talented those who may well move interdisci­ plinary limitations with tremendous top of the range and efficient interactions of lasting price. His contributions, starting from concrete engineering difficulties to primary mathematical theorems in geometric mechanics, are striking. In present meetings in addition to in clinical books and articles, and over quite a lot of matters, one usually hears how his principles in addition to particular effects are usually used and quoted-this is one indication of simply how profound and primary his paintings has impacted the community.

Voodoo Histories: The Role of the Conspiracy Theory in Shaping Modern History

A heritage so humorous, so actual, so frightening, it's absolute to be referred to as a conspiracy.

"Meticulous in its learn, forensic in its reasoning, powerful in its argument, and infrequently hilarious in its debunking, Voodoo Histories is a hugely enjoyable rumble with the century's significant conspiracy theorists and their theories" (John Lahr). From Pearl Harbor to Sept. 11 to the assassination of JFK to the Birthers, Aaronvitch probes and explores the foremost conspiracy theories (and theorists) of our time. In doing so, he examines why humans think those conspiracies and makes a controversy for a real skepticism.

Theory and Applications of Relational Structures as Knowledge Instruments: COST Action 274, TARSKI. Revised Papers

Relational buildings abound in our day-by-day atmosphere: relational databases, info mining, scaling techniques, choice family, and so forth. because the documentation of clinical effects completed in the ecu price motion 274, TARSKI, this e-book advances the certainty of relational constructions and using relational tools in quite a few software fields.

Theory and Practice of Risk Assessment: ICRA 5, Tomar, Portugal, 2013

This booklet covers the most recent leads to the sphere of chance research. offered issues comprise probabilistic versions in melanoma examine, types and strategies in sturdiness, epidemiology of melanoma possibility, engineering reliability and most economical possibility difficulties. The contributions of this quantity originate from the fifth foreign convention on hazard research (ICRA 5).
