This Handbook treats those parts of the theory of Boolean algebras of most interest to pure mathematicians: the set-theoretical abstract theory and applications and relationships to measure theory, topology, and logic. It is divided into two parts (published in three volumes). Part I (volume 1) is a comprehensive, self-contained introduction to the set-theoretical aspects of the theory of Boolean Algebras. It includes, in addition to a systematic introduction of basic algebra and topological ideas, recent developments such as the Balcar-Franek and Shelah-Shapirovskii results on free subalgebras. Part II (volumes 2 and 3) contains articles on special topics describing - mostly with full proofs - the most recent results in special areas such as automorphism groups, Ketonen's theorem, recursive Boolean algebras, and measure algebras.
Comprising two volumes this work provides a particularly comprehensive account of the development of kinetic theory and statistical mechanics up to the beginning of the 20th century. The author's historical researches go far beyond any other books on the subject, filling in many more details and putting the history of kinetic theory in the context of 19th century scientific and intellectual history. In the course of detailed examination of the sources, both published and unpublished, the author throws much new light on the dynamics of scientific change, and refutes some generally accepted ideas about historical events. In one section of the work, he demonstrates the use of a kind of historical document which has rarely, if ever, been exploited by historians of science, namely, referees' reports. The work is primarily directed towards physicists, but as it is not only concerned with technical aspects of the history of physics but also deals with cultural and philosophical connections, it will also appeal to historians of science and philosophers. Book 2 is completed by an unusually comprehensive bibliography.
This volume deals with laser physics emphasizing laser theory from
a physical point of view. It takes into account most recent

single and multimode lasers, mode competition, hole-burning,
Q-switched lasers, relaxation-oscillations, frequency shifts,
population pulsations, mode-locking, ultrashort pulses,
self-pulsing, laser light chaos, instability hierarchies, laser
gyro, optical bistability, optical transistor, two-photon laser,
laser line width, Hanbury-Brown-Twiss experiment, intensity

In spite of the extensive attention given by research workers to aphids no comprehensive review has been published covering all aspects of aphid biology. A few small books exist on certain aspects of nomenclature, ecology, physiology and natural enemies. Aphid biology is studied by many specialists, all representing their own area of interest, therefore the only way to present this comprehensive review is by the multi-author approach. This three-volume work is compiled in a similar way to the first books in the series World Crop Pests: Spider Mites. The volumes contain contributions by more than 40 authors. In this first volume an account is given on morphology and systematics, anatomy, genetics, life cycles, ways of life, reproduction and polymorphism and interaction with the environment. These topics are followed by an in-depth study of evolution of aphids, especially in connection with the evolution of plants. In addition processes governing the development of population structure and speciation are elicited.
This two-part volume with contributions from more than 50 international specialists, provides an up-to-date text and brings together facts and views of acarologists specialized in various aspects of the biology of spider mites. The need for such a treatment of scientific progress and recommended topics for future research exists among students, commencing in the study of acarology and plant protection, as well as among those engaged in acarological research and teaching. Both books will serve to provide a synthesis of much of the knowledge on basic and applied aspects of the biology of spider mites and their natural enemies; stimulate students to analyse critically the views propounded by the authors of the book, and instigate research into environmentally safe and cost effective means of pest control.
The Icelandic Sagas are prose histories, describing life and events that took place in Iceland, during the 10th and 11th centuries. They are stories of families, adventures, feuding, deal-making, wars, great journeys, history, and myth. They are stories of the Norse and Celtic settlers and their descendants in Iceland during what is sometimes called the Saga Age. For Asatruars and Heathens, there is indispensible knowledge to be gained here. These tales give us a window into the world of our heathen ancestors. What did they value? How did they resolve conflicts? How did they uphold their responsibilities to their famlies and their friends? How did they approach life and their places within the community? How did they view and honor their Gods and Ancestors? Contained in this volume are nearly 800 pages of Icelandic Sagas. Read, learn, and enjoy these tales of our Ancestors. This is part of a planned 3 volume set. All profits go into a fund to build a Hof and Hall here in the Heartland.
Arc welding continues to be the predominant fabrication process for
a wide range of manufacturing industries, and the conference
provided a unique insight into the process developments and
applications from around the world. The economic success of a
fabrication is critically dependent on the selection of the most
cost effective welding procedures - hence the importance of
companies keeping abreast of the latest developments in arc welding
technology to ensure that the most cost effective and reliable
procedures are used.
