Kinematics and Dynamics of...

Stellar dynamics is an interdisciplinary field where mathematics, statistics, physics, and astronomy overlap. The approaches to studying a stellar system include dealing with the collisionless Boltzmann equation, the Chandrasekhar equations, and stellar hydrodynamic equations, which are comparable to the equations of motion of a co...

Magnetic and Electric Reso...

This book is devoted to a quasi-classical treatment of quantum transitions, with an emphasis on nuclear magnetic resonance, nuclear quadrupole resonance and electric dipolar resonance. The method described here is based on the quasi-classical description of condensed matter, and makes use of the equation of motion of harmonic oscil...

Measuring the Evolution Co...

The reality of evolution is indisputable and, based on current scientific evidence, all people in the world should accept it as fact. Yet, only 41% of adults worldwide embrace evolution, and they do it under the premise that a deity created humans. One in every three people is a strict creationist who believes in religious scriptur...

Metaphorical Imagination

This book tells the story of an intellectual journey with metaphor. It questions the basis of evidence in social research, especially the 21st century fallacies surrounding it. Metaphor itself serves as the story-teller here.As the book shows, social research evidence is hidden deep inside metaphor, and is uncovered by the use of t...

Paradigms and Perspectives...

In Paradigms and Perspectives on Value and Reality, one encounters a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approach to the study of timeless questions relating to the human condition. In the book, the reader will encounter the fundamental questions of what the nature of reality is, how one can come to know this, and what our moral o...

Patents and Climate Change

After 4.5 billion years of change, is the planet Earth a complex and delicate ecosystem? It is well-known that some human activities may be part of a climate-change process that affects global warming. Environmental scientists continue to make substantial progress in advancing our understanding of how such activities affect climate...

Physiological and Anatomic...

Rice is a well-established salt-sensitive cereal crop and is the second most widely grown and consumed food crop worldwide. It is also a semi-aquatic cereal crop. The rice plant has many adaptations for surviving the aquatic environment, which include the development of specialised roots called adventitious roots, increase in aeren...

Quantum Theatre

Quantum Theatre uses the science of quantum mechanics to construct a rigorous framework for examining performance practice and the theatrical event, and live performance as a means of exploring the implications of quantum mechanics. Key ideas from physics are used to develop an interdisciplinary approach to writing about the work o...

Ranges of Bimodule Project...

The algebraic theory of corner subrings introduced by Lam (as an abstraction of the properties of Peirce corners eRe of a ring R associated with an idempotent e in R) is investigated here in the context of Banach and C*-algebras. We propose a general algebraic approach which includes the notion of ranges of (completely) contractive...

Recent Advances in Science...

Science and technology education research, influenced by inquiry-based thinking, not only concentrates on the teaching of scientific concepts and addressing any misconceptions that learners may hold, but also emphasizes the ways in which students learn and tries to find out avenues to achieve better learning through creativity. New...

Science and Empire in the ...

The issue at stake in this volume is the role of science as a way to fulfil a quest for knowledge, a tool in the exploration of foreign lands, a central paradigm in the discourse on and representations of Otherness. The interweaving of scientific and ideological discourses is not limited to the geopolitical frame of the British emp...

Science and its Publics

The relationship between science and its publics has concerned commentators since science itself began. Yet in recent years, questions of how—and how should—science and society interact have come to particular prominence. A field of practice, initially dubbed ‘public understanding of science’ and later rebranded as ‘public engageme...
