Aviation and Its Management: Global Challenges and Opportunities

This book was written with the purpose of meeting this need of the aviation sector. Due to the diversified nature of aviation knowledge, which includes flying, engineering, airports, allied trades for aircraft and airports, airline and airport management and operations, education, etc., one text alone will not suffice and do justice to address all these areas. It is envisaged to develop subsequent parts of this book to cover all thes...

The Overestimation of Medical Consequences of Low-Dose Exposure to Ionizing Radiation

This book shows that the medical consequences of low-dose, low-rate exposures to ionizing radiation have been overestimated by certain scientists, which apparently occurred in accordance with unofficial policies and directives. It analyses and exposes the biases and hidden conflicts of interest in numerous scientific publications overestimating the medico-biological consequences of low-dose radiation. After the Chernobyl accident, ma...

Toute la physique à portée de main - 3e édition

Pourquoi ne traversons-nous pas le sol? Quelle est la forme de l'Univers? Peut-on aller plus vite que la lumière? Cet ouvrage, actualisé à l'occasion de cette nouvelle édition, répond à ces questions et à bien d'autres. Aucun prérequis n'est nécessaire : les fondements physiques des phénomènes les plus simples comme les plus complexes sont expliqués clairement, sans recours à l'outil mathématique : les formules sont concentrées dans ...

Reusable and Sustainable Building Materials in Modern Architecture

Designing buildings and physical environments depends on social structure, social needs, economic data, environment, and technological development. Planning these environments is heavily influenced by cultural and regional need, the existing environment, and the materials available. Reusable and Sustainable Building Materials in Modern Architecture is an essential reference source that discusses the shaping of building design through...

Introduction to Distributed Self-Stabilizing Algorithms

This book aims at being a comprehensive and pedagogical introduction to the concept of self-stabilization, introduced by Edsger Wybe Dijkstra in 1973. Self-stabilization characterizes the ability of a distributed algorithm to converge within finite time to a configuration from which its behavior is correct (i.e., satisfies a given specification), regardless the arbitrary initial configuration of the system. This arbitrary initial con...

Geographical Design: Spatial Cognition and Geographical Information Science, Second Edition

With spatial technologies ranging from mapping software to the use of location-based services, spatial knowledge is often acquired and communicated through geographic information technologies. This book describes the interplay between spatial cognition research and use of spatial interfaces. It begins by reviewing what is known about how humans process spatial concepts and then moves on to discuss how interfaces can be improved to ta...

Effective Field Theories

This book is a broad-based text intended to help the growing student body interested in constructing and applying methods of effective field theory to solve problems in their research. It begins with a review of using symmetries to identify the relevant degrees of freedom in a problem, and then presents a variety of methods that can be used to construct various effective theories. A detailed discussion of canonical applications of ef...

Ion Traps for Tomorrow's Applications

Ion trapping was first accomplished in Europe more than 50 years ago. Since then, research and development have increased steadily, and the last decades have seen a remarkable growth in applications, mainly due to the improvement of laser-based techniques for spectroscopy, cooling and the manipulation of ions. Nowadays ion trapping plays a crucial role in a wide range of disciplines, including atomic and plasma physics, chemistry, hi...
