The present volume collects the contributions to the conference "Order, disorder and chaos in quantum systems" which was held at Dubna last October. It is the third meeting in the series started three years ago in which we tried to put together mathematical physicists from the member and non-member countries of JINR with their colleagues from soviet universities and institutes using this international centre as a convenient basis. As in the previous cases, new faces, subj ects and ideas appeared but the spirit remained the same, relaxed and inspirative. Among this conference contributions, a majority should be listed in the "orderly" category. Being more specific, this means mostly various aspects of the theory of Schroedinger operators that has been always a core of quantum mechanics. In spite of the fact that it is studied already for several decades, there are still many interesting problems to solve as some of the lectures collected below witness. At the same time, the theory extends to some new areas motivated by physical problems ; let us mention Schroedinger operators in complicated spatial domains appearing in some parts of solid-state physics or various models using the concept of contact interactions. Our world is far from perfect and to keep a perfect order is difficult not only in everyday life but also in most physical systems. Theoreticians are used to take this fact into account introducing stochastic factors into their considerations.
Simon Aicher, ?H.-W. Reinhardt, ?Harald Garrecht - Materials and Joints in Timber Structures: Recent Developments of Technology
Published: 2013-10-09 | ISBN: 9400778104 | PDF | 600 pages | 48 MB
This book contains the contributions from the RILEM International Symposium on Materials and Joints in Timber Structures that was held in Stuttgart, Germany from October 8 to 10, 2013. It covers recent developments in the materials and the joints used in modern timber structures. Regarding basic wooden materials, the contributions highlight the widened spectrum of products comprising cross-laminated timber, glulam and LVL from hardwoods and block glued elements. Timber concrete compounds, cement bonded wood composites and innovative light-weight constructions represent increasingly employed alternatives for floors, bridges and facades. With regard to jointing technologies, considerable advances in both mechanical connections and glued joints are presented. Self-tapping screws have created unprecedented options for reliable, strong as well as ductile joints and reinforcement technologies. Regarding adhesives, which constitute the basis of the jointing/laminating technology of modern timber products, extended options for tailor-made bonding solutions have to be stated. Apart from melamine-urea and phenolic-resorcinol adhesives, one-component-polyurethanes, emulsion isocyanate polymers and epoxies offer a wide range of possibilities. The contributions dealing with experimental and numerical investigations on static, cyclic and seismic behavior of structures clearly reveal the enhanced potential of modern timber construction for reliable and sustainable buildings and bridges of the new millennium.
Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine - A Comprehensive Study Guide, Seventh Edition
ISBN: 0071484809 | 2208 pages | PDF | 556 Mb
Collectively, they have once again produced an excellent text that manages to cover the broad scope of emergency medicine while remaining an easily readable and practical resource....Last, for the inevitable comparison of this current edition of Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine with other available emergency medicine textbooks available: in my opinion, Tintinalliís still comes out on top.
