Fractal Mechanics of Polymers: Chemistry and Physics of Complex Polymeric Materials by G. V. Kozlov, Yu G. Yanovskii
2014 | ISBN: 1771880414 | English | 384 pages | PDF | 11 MB

Fractal Mechanics of Polymers: Chemistry and Physics of Complex Polymeric Materials
This new book explores the consideration of relationships that connect the structural and basic mechanical properties of polymeric mediums within the frameworks of fractal analysis with cluster model representations attraction. Incidentally, the choice of any structural model of medium or their combinations is defined by expediency and further usage convenience only. This book presents leading-edge research in this rapidly changing and evolving field.

The book presents descriptions of the main reactions of high-molecular substances within the frameworks of fractal analysis and irreversible aggregation models. Synergetics and percolation theory were also used. In spite of the enormous number of papers dealing with the influence of the medium on the rate of chemical reactions (including synthesis of polymers), no strict quantitative theory capable of "universal" application has been put forward up until now. It is now possible to describe the relationship between the reaction rate constants and the equilibrium constants with the nature of the medium in which the reactions take place by means of a single equation. This important book for the first time gives structural and physical grounds of polymers synthesis and curing, and the fractal analysis is used for this purpose.

This new book:

* Highlights some important areas of current interest in polymer products and chemical processes

* Focuses on topics with more advanced methods

* Emphasizes precise mathematical development and actual experimental details

* Analyzes theories to formulate and prove the physicochemical principles

* Provides an up-to-date and thorough exposition of the present state of the art of complex polymeric materials

Catherine Hess, “Maiolica in the Making: The Gentili/Barnabei Archive”

Catherine Hess, "Maiolica in the Making: The Gentili/Barnabei Archive"
Publisher: J. Paul Getty | 1999 | ISBN: 0892365005 | English | PDF | 196 pages | 59.3 Mb
“Colorful, spatially illusionistic, and intellectually intricate, the maiolica created by the Italian potters of Castelli during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries constitutes a final, supremely pictorial phase of this tin-glazed earthenware art. The Gentili/Barnabei archive at the Getty Research Institute affords a rare glimpse into the workshops that produced these wares. Maiolica in the Making not only documents the drawings, engravings, transfer patterns, letters, and other papers preserved in this unusual archive but also discusses their significance for the history of ceramics.

As the tattered sheets of paper preserved in the Gentili/Barnabei archive attest, the ceramists working in Castelli during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries were inspired by a rich admixture of religious and classical imagery, economic expediency, and local knowledge. In this archive, an engraving of a young flutist in a tricorne accompanies a print of Neptune plotting the destruction of man. Sketches of putti and satyrs coexist with drawings of saints and Madonnas. The pinpricked outline of a warrior on horseback traverses a potter’s letter. Poems and inventories are interleaved with sheets bearing elaborate scrolls, mysterious decorative elements, unidentified coats of arms, and the four oldest pricked cartoons for ceramic decoration known to be in existence. Maiolica in the Making describes the varied materials in this remarkable archive and explores what they imply about the use of design sources in the early ceramic workshops of Italy.

The Bibliographies & Dossiers series is designed to provide information about the primary materials held by the Getty Research Institute for the History of Art and the Humanities. These materials range from the fourteenth century to the present and constitute a resource for the study of all major periods of European history. The Research Institute expanded the geographic reach of its collecting to include areas such as North and South America, the ancient Near East, and the Islamic world. Among the diverse holdings are rare books, architectural drawings, original correspondence and other manuscripts, photographs, artists’ sketchbooks, and the archives of scholars, critics, artists, and galleries.

The volumes in the series will include annotated bibliographies and short compilations of visual and textual materials that describe and analyze significant groupings of material in the Research Institute’s collections. Compiled by scholars from the Research Institute and the international academic community, the publications will be significant research tools for students and scholars in a variety of disciplines. The editors are Julia Bloomfield, Harry F. Mallgrave, JoAnne C. Paradise, Thomas F. Reese, and Salvatore Settis.”

Press Reviews and Awards“This remarkable little book should be essential reading not just for students of Italian maiolica, but also for anyone interested in the transfer of images—most often, but not exclusively, in the form of prints—in the decorative arts.” —Apollo
