Udo J. Birk, “Super-Resolution Microscopy: A Practical Guide”

English | ISBN: 3527341331 | 2017 | 408 pages | PDF | 13 MB
This unique book on super–resolution microscopy techniques presents comparative, in–depth analyses of the strengths and weaknesses of the individual approaches. It was written for non–experts who need to understand the principles of super–resolution or who wish to use recently commercialized instruments as well as for professionals who plan to realize novel microscopic devices. Explaining the practical requirements in terms of hardware, software and sample preparation, the book offers a wealth of hands–on tips and practical tricks to get a setup running, provides invaluable help and support for successful data acquisition and specific advice in the context of data analysis and visualization. Furthermore, it addresses a wide array of transdisciplinary fields of applications.
The author begins by outlining the joint efforts that have led to achieving super–resolution microscopy combining advances in single–molecule photo–physics, fluorophore design and fluorescent labeling, instrument design and software development. The following chapters depict and compare current main standard techniques such as structured illumination microscopy, single–molecule localization, stimulated emission depletion microscopy and multi–scale imaging including light–sheet and expansion microscopy. For each individual approach the experimental setups are introduced, the imaging protocols are provided and the various applications illustrated. The book concludes with a discussion of future challenges addressing issues of routine applications and further commercialization of the available methods.
Guiding users in how to make choices for the design of their own experiments from scratch to promising application, this one–stop resource is intended for researchers in the applied sciences, from chemistry to biology and medicine to physics and engineering.

Mechanics of Liquid Nano- and Microdispersed Magnetic Media by V. M. Polunin, A. M. Storozhenko, P.A. Ryapolov

2017 | ISBN: 1138068233 | English | 210 pages | PDF | 10 MB
This book offers unique coverage of the mechanical properties of nano- and micro-dispersed magnetic fluids. Magnetic fluids are artificially created materials that do not exist in the nature. Researchers developing materials and devices are keenly interested in their “mutually exclusive” properties including fluidity, compressibility, and the ability to magnetize up to saturation in relatively small magnetic fields. Applications of micro- and nanodispersed magnetic fluids include magnetic-seals, magnetically operated grease in friction units and supports, separators of non-magnetic materials, oil skimmers and separators, sensors of acceleration and angle, and gap fillers in loudspeakers.

Andreas Öchsner, Holm Altenbach, “Improved Performance of Materials: Design and Experimental Approaches”

English | EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 277 Pages | ISBN : 331959589X | 7 MB
This book offers a snapshot of recent developments in improving the properties and performance of engineering materials and structures. It discusses modeling properties related to classical mechanical, thermal, electrical and optical fields as well as those related to surface-specific quantities (e.g. roughness, wear and modifications due to surface coatings). The material types presented range from classical metals and synthetic materials to composites.
Competitiveness due to cost efficiency (e.g. lighter structures and the corresponding fuel savings for transportation systems) and sustainability (e.g. recyclability or reusability) are the driving factors for engineering developments. The outcomes of these efforts are difficult to be accurately monitored due to the ongoing evaluation cycles.

Pierre Delhaes, “Materials and Thermodynamics”

English | ISBN: 178630208X | 2017 | 292 pages | PDF | 22 MB
A thermodynamic system is defined according to its environment and its compliance. This book promotes the classification of materials from generalized thermodynamics outside the equilibrium state and not solely according to their chemical origin.
The author goes beyond standard classification of materials and extends it to take into account the living, ecological, economic and financial systems in which they exist: all these systems can be classified according to their deviation from an ideal situation of thermodynamic equilibrium.
The concepts of dynamic complexity and hierarchy, emphasizing the crucial role played by cycles and rhythms, then become fundamental. Finally, the limitations of the uniqueness of this description that depend on thermodynamic foundations based on the concepts of energy and entropy are discussed in relation to the cognitive sciences.

Geraint F. Lewis, Luke A. Barnes, “A Fortunate Universe – Life in a Finely Tuned Cosmos”

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1107156610 | 388 pages | PDF | 3 MB
Over the last forty years, scientists have uncovered evidence that if the Universe had been forged with even slightly different properties, life as we know it – and life as we can imagine it – would be impossible. Join us on a journey through how we understand the Universe, from its most basic particles and forces, to planets, stars and galaxies, and back through cosmic history to the birth of the cosmos. Conflicting notions about our place in the Universe are defined, defended and critiqued from scientific, philosophical and religious viewpoints. The authors’ engaging and witty style addresses what fine-tuning might mean for the future of physics and the search for the ultimate laws of nature. Tackling difficult questions and providing thought-provoking answers, this volumes challenges us to consider our place in the cosmos, regardless of our initial convictions.
