Biomimetic Architectures by Plasma Processing: Fabrication and Applications
Plasma-processed biomimetic structures are an extremely focused and small subset of biomimetics. Although other methods can also be adopted, experimental synthesis of biomimetic structures mainly focuses on plasma processing. This book deals with the theoretical description of photonic structures available in nature, and the physics and applications of biomimetic structures prepared in the laboratory. It discusses anti-reflection properties of moth eye- or cicada wing-type nanostructured materials on semiconductor surfaces, with emphasis on plasma fabrication procedures. It also explains, with the help of related theories, the superhydrophobic or hydrophilic wetting properties demonstrated by most of these natural structures. It discusses biomedical applications, especially in implants, as one of the key applications of such materials.
The book focuses mainly on plasma processing of biomimetic nanostructures and is, therefore, different from similar books that are more general in nature. It presents essential schematics, sufficient details, and advanced instrumentation techniques that would help readers understand why these structures are considered so important in materials science and physics.

Laruelle: Against the Digital (Posthumanities) by Alexander R. Galloway
2014 | ISBN: 0816692130, 0816692122 | English | 304 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Laruelle: Against the Digital
Laruelle is one of the first books in English to undertake in an extended critical survey of the work of the idiosyncratic French thinker François Laruelle, the promulgator of non-standard philosophy. Laruelle, who was born in 1937, has recently gained widespread recognition, and Alexander R. Galloway suggests that readers may benefit from colliding Laruelle’s concept of the One with its binary counterpart, the Zero, to explore more fully the relationship between philosophy and the digital.

In Laruelle, Galloway argues that the digital is a philosophical concept and not simply a technical one, employing a detailed analysis of Laruelle to build this case while referencing other thinkers in the French and Continental traditions, including Alain Badiou, Gilles Deleuze, Martin Heidegger, and Immanuel Kant. In order to explain clearly Laruelle’s concepts such as the philosophical decision and the principle of sufficient philosophy, Galloway lays a broad foundation with his discussions of “the One” as it has developed in continental philosophy, the standard model of philosophy, and how philosophers view “the digital.”

Digital machines dominate today’s world, while so-called digital thinking—that is, binary thinking such as presence and absence or self and world—is often synonymous with what it means to think at all. In examining Laruelle and digitality together, Galloway shows how Laruelle remains a profoundly non-digital thinker—perhaps the only non-digital thinker today—and engages in an extensive discussion on the interconnections between media, philosophy, and technology.

Albert Schweitzer’s Ethical Vision A Sourcebook

Albert Schweitzer's Ethical Vision A Sourcebook by Predrag Cicovacki
English | 2009-02-02 | ISBN: 0195377885, 0195377893 | PDF | 264 pages | 2 MB

Albert Schweitzer’s Ethical Vision A Sourcebook
The philosophy of Albert Schweitzer has proved widely influential in modern thinking, especially in the field of ethics. His leading ethical idea can be summarized in the phrase "reverence for life" – namely, that good consists in maintaining and perfecting life, and evil consists in destroying and obstructing life. For Schweitzer, all life is sacred. Ethics thus deals with human attitudes and behavior toward all living beings.

Unlike many moral philosophers, Schweitzer argues that knowledge of human nature does not provide a sufficient foundation for any adequate moral theory. That is why he bases his ethics on much broader foundations, articulated in his philosophy of civilization and the philosophy of religion. Schweitzer argues that the material aspect of our civilization has become far more important than its spiritual counterpart. Even organized religion has put itself in the service of politics and economy, thereby losing its vitality and moral authority.

Schweitzer's ethics of reverence for life, argues Predrag Cicovacki, offers a viable alternative at a time when traditional ethical theories are found inadequate. Schweitzer's robust and un-dogmatic idealism may offer the best antidote to the prevailing relativism and nihilism of the postmodern epoch. His ethical vision directs us toward a new way of building a more just and more peaceful world. Collecting sixteen of Schweitzer's most effective essays, this volume serves as a compelling introduction to this remarkable thinker and humanist.

Optimal Control, 2nd edition By Frank L. Lewis, Vassilis L. Syrmos
1995 | 560 Pages | ISBN: 0471033782 | PDF | 14 MB

Optimal Control, 2nd edition
This new, updated edition of Optimal Control reflects major changes that have occurred in the field in recent years and presents, in a clear and direct way, the fundamentals of optimal control theory. It covers the major topics involving measurement, principles of optimality, dynamic programming, variational methods, Kalman filtering, and other solution techniques. To give the reader a sense of the problems that can arise in a hands-on project, the authors have included new material on optimal output feedback control, a technique used in the aerospace industry. Also included are two new chapters on robust control to provide background in this rapidly growing area of interest. Relations to classical control theory are emphasized throughout the text, and a root-locus approach to steady-state controller design is included. A chapter on optimal control of polynomial systems is designed to give the reader sufficient background for further study in the field of adaptive control.

The authors demonstrate through numerous examples that computer simulations of optimal controllers are easy to implement and help give the reader an intuitive feel for the equations. To help build the reader's confidence in understanding the theory and its practical applications, the authors have provided many opportunities throughout the book for writing simple programs.

Optimal Control will also serve as an invaluable reference for control engineers in the industry. It offers numerous tables that make it easy to find the equations needed to implement optimal controllers for practical applications. All simulations have been performed using MATLAB and relevant Toolboxes.

Optimal Control assumes a background in the state-variable representation of systems; because matrix manipulations are the basic mathematical vehicle of the book, a short review is included in the appendix.

A lucid introductory text and an invaluable reference, Optimal Control will serve as a complete tool for the professional engineer and advanced student alike.

As a superb introductory text and an indispensable reference, this new edition of Optimal Control will serve the needs of both the professional engineer and the advanced student in mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering. Its coverage encompasses all the fundamental topics as well as the major changes of recent years, including output-feedback design and robust design. An abundance of computer simulations using MATLAB and relevant Toolboxes is included to give the reader the actual experience of applying the theory to real-world situations. Major topics covered include:
* Static Optimization
* Optimal Control of Discrete-Time Systems
* Optimal Control of Continuous-Time Systems
* The Tracking Problem and Other LQR Extensions
* Final-Time-Free and Constrained Input Control
* Dynamic Programming
* Optimal Control for Polynomial Systems
* Output Feedback and Structured Control
* Robustness and Multivariable Frequency-Domain Techniques

Plato: A Very Short Introduction by Julia Annas
English | 2003-05-15 | ISBN: 019280216X | PDF | 120 pages | 2,7 MB

Plato: A Very Short Introduction
This lively and accessible book focuses on the philosophy and argument of Plato's writings, drawing the reader into Plato's way of doing philosophy and the general themes of his thinking. It discusses Plato's style of writing: his use of the dialogue form, his use of what we today call fiction, and his philosophical transformation of myths. It also looks at his discussions of love and philosophy, his attitude towards women, and towards homosexual love. It explores Plato's claim that virtue is sufficient for happiness and touches on his arguments for the immorality of the soul and his ideas about the nature of the universe.

Surface-Based Remote Sensing of the Atmospheric Boundary Layer

FREEDownload : Surface-Based Remote Sensing of the Atmospheric Boundary Layer

Surface-Based Remote Sensing of the Atmospheric Boundary Layer by Stefan Emeis
English | 2010-09-09 | ISBN: 9048193397 | PDF | 200 pages | 5 MB

Surface-Based Remote Sensing of the Atmospheric Boundary Layer
The book presents a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) research. It focuses on experimental ABL research, while most of the books on ABL discuss it from a theoretical or fluid dynamics point of view.
Experimental ABL research has been made so far by surface-based in-situ experimentation (tower measurements up to a few hundred meters, surface energy balance measurements, short aircraft experiments, short experiments with tethered balloons, constant-level balloons, evaluation of radiosonde data). Surface flux measurements are also discussed in the book. Although the surface fluxes are one of the main driving factors for the daily variation of the ABL, an ABL description is only complete if its vertical structure is analyzed and determined. Satellite information is available covering large areas, but it has only limited temporal resolution and lacks sufficient vertical resolution. Therefore, surface-based remote sensing is a large challenge to enlarge the database for ABL studies, as it offers nearly continuous and vertically highly resolved information for specific sites of interest.
Considerable progress has been made in the recent years in studying of ground-based remote sensing of the ABL. The book discusses such new subjects as micro-rain radars and the use of ceilometers for ABL profiling, modern small wind lidars for wind energy applications, ABL flux profile measurements, RASS techniques, and mixing-layer height determination.

Rumanian Folk Music: Carols and Christmas Songs (Colinde) (Bartok Archives Studies in Musicology) (Volume 4) by Bela Bartok
English | 1975 | ISBN: 9401016852 | 604 Pages | PDF | 51 MB
n the first volume of Rumanian Folk Music (Instrumental Melodies) I portions of Bela Bart6k's subsequently-discarded preface, concern­ ing the fate of his folklore publications, are presented in explanation of the editorial processes necessary for achieving the publication. 1 By way of introduction to this revised edition of a previous, although in­ complete, published version of the Rumanian Carols and Christmas Songs (Colinde), we refer again to the author's suppressed lines which pertain to this volume: The second publication by the same publisher was to include my collection of Rumanian Colindas (Winter-solstice songs).

Rumanian Folk Music: Carols and Christmas Songs
Their extremely interesting texts were supposed to appear in original as well as in English. After several years of delay, the translation to English prose was completed, one part in adequate archaic English, the rest (by someone else) in most unsuitable Kitchen-English. The publisher did not wish to change this, though. Result: I published the book at my own expense; however, only the musical part, because of lack of sufficient funds. The texts are still in manuscript, even today. 2 Our primary aim, therefore, has been to unite the Rumanian poetic texts and translations with the musical part, in one volume, as was the desire of the author.

Mathematical and Computer Programming Techniques for Computer Graphics by Peter Comninos
English | October 11, 2005 | ISBN: 1852339020 | 548 Pages | PDF | 5 MB
Mathematical and Computer Programming Techniques for Computer Graphics introduces the mathematics and related computer programming techniques used in Computer Graphics. Starting with the underlying mathematical ideas, it gradually leads the reader to a sufficient understanding of the detail to be able to implement libraries and programs for 2D and 3D graphics. Using lots of code examples, the reader is encouraged to explore and experiment with data and computer programs (in the C programming language) and to master the related mathematical techniques.

Mathematical and Computer Programming Techniques for Computer Graphics
Written for students with a minimum prerequisite knowledge of mathematics, the reader should have had some basic exposure to topics such as functions, trigonometric functions, elementary geometry and number theory, and also to have some familiarity with computer programming languages such as C. The material presented in this book has been used successfully with final year undergraduate and masters students studying Computer Graphics and Computer Animation. A simple but effective set of routines are included, organised as a library, covering both 2D and 3D graphics – taking a parallel approach to mathematical theory, and showing the reader how to incorporate it into example programs. This approach both demystifies the mathematics and demonstrates its relevance to 2D and 3D computer graphics.
