Selected Nuclear Materials and Engineering Systems

The present volume in the New Series of Landolt-Börnstein provides critically evaluated data on phase diagrams, crystallographic and thermodynamic data of ternary alloy systems. Reliable phase diagrams provide materials scientists and engineers with basic information important for fundamental research, development and optimization of materials.

The often conflicting literature data have been critically evaluated by Materials Science International Team, MSIT®, a team working together since many years, and with expertise in a broad range of methods, materials and applications…

According to the customer reviews, its a highly satisfying conclusion to the series.


Cell Adhesion and Cytoskeletal Molecules in Metastasis (Cancer Metastasis - Biology and Treatment)

This volume highlights the expression of specific adhesion molecules within human cancer tissues. It details the expression signatures from published DNA microarray and immunohistochemistry studies. Coverage discusses the concept that the alteration of specific adhesion molecules influence the cancer migration ability and cancer damage responses, both features are essential for the survival of an invading tumor cell…

This is who reads science books. You're welcome, thanks reviewer


Nuclear Energy

The three volumes VIII/3A, B, C of Energy Technologies should primarily serve scientists, engineers, and students to gain information on physical, chemical, and technical properties of all technologies to provide, convert, distribute, store, and finally use energy. They are supplemented with economic background information and with specific concepts, to allow the reader a proper comparison of different energy technologies. In this way these volumes on energy technologies should help human society pave the way towards sufficient and environmentally safe provision and use of energy…

Chemical Shifts and Coupling Constants for Silicon-29 (Landolt-Börnstein: Numerical Data and Functional Relationships in Science and Technology - New Series / Condensed Matter)

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is based on the fact that certain nuclei exhibit a magnetic moment, oriented by a magnetic field, and absorb characteristic frequencies in the radiofrequency part of the spectrum. The spectral lines of the nuclei are highly influenced by the chemical environment, i.e. the structure and interaction of the molecules. NMR is now the leading technique and a powerful tool for the investigation of the structure and interaction of molecules…

A Survey of Radial Velocities in the Zodiacal Dust Cloud

The Zodiacal Light, that misty diffuse cone of light seen in the West after Sunset and the East before Sunrise, is a beautiful and intriguing phenomenon. Even though everyone can enjoy the sight from a suitably dark location, it is poorly understood, and has been the subject of relatively little research. Brian May began his research into the subject in 1970, and was finally awarded his PhD in 2007, after a hiatus of more than 30 years pursuing his other career as guitarist with his rock band Queen. This book is Brian’s thesis, and as such presents the results of his research for astronomers…

Dr. Brian May's Thesis Now Available on Amazon!

"A Survey of Radial Velocities in the Zodiacal Dust Cloud"...I predict that somehow this will be the biggest selling astrophysics thesis Amazon has ever sold.
