Hypergeometric functions, my love : modular interpretations by Masaaki Yoshida

By Masaaki Yoshida

The classical tale - of the hypergeometric capabilities, the configuration house of four issues at the projective line, elliptic curves, elliptic modular capabilities and the theta features - now evolves, during this e-book, to the tale of hypergeometric funktions in four variables, the configuration house of 6 issues within the projective aircraft, K3 surfaces, theta capabilities in four variables.
this contemporary conception has been validated by way of the writer and his collaborators within the 1990's; additional improvement to diversified points is expected.
It leads the reader to a desirable four-dimensional world.
the writer tells the tale casually and visually in a undeniable language, beginning shape ordinary point reminiscent of equivalence family, the exponential functionality, ... Undergraduate scholars can be capable of benefit from the text.

Foldable Flex and Thinned Silicon Multichip Packaging by John W. Balde (auth.), John W. Balde (eds.)

By John W. Balde (auth.), John W. Balde (eds.)

Foldable Flex and Thinned Silicon Multichip Packaging Technology provides newly rising tools used to make stacked chip programs within the so-called 2-1/2 D expertise (3-D in actual structure, yet interconnected merely during the circuits on folded flex). it's also getting used in unmarried chip applications the place the thinness of the chips and the flex substrate made applications considerably thinner than via the other potential.

The Hoover Dam (Building America: Then and Now) by Rebecca Aldridge

By Rebecca Aldridge

The Hoover Dam is well-known as one of many seven engineering wonders of the trendy global. the development of this behemoth dam - the foundation of 1 Arthur Powell Davis - used to be an immense feat on many degrees. Years-long political disputes needed to be settled. participants and firms within the engineering and development nation-states needed to bond jointly to shape a unmarried corporation able to taking up one of these groundbreaking venture. millions of employees from round the kingdom flocked to the venture to escape the poverty of the nice melancholy. Roads, homes, and electrical energy needed to be equipped and put in within the untouched surroundings of Black Canyon. Then, with virtually unimaginable pace, the Hoover Dam rose from the dry dirt of the western usa to turn into the most amazing engineering accomplishments in heritage.

Geological CO2 Storage Characterization: The Key to by Ronald C. Surdam (auth.), Ronald C. Surdam (eds.)

By Ronald C. Surdam (auth.), Ronald C. Surdam (eds.)

This publication investigates geological CO2 garage and its position in greenhouse fuel emissions relief, better oil restoration, and environmentally liable use of fossil fuels. Written for energy/environmental regulators at each point of presidency (federal, nation, etc.), scientists/academics, representatives from the facility and fossil strength sectors, NGOs, and different events, this booklet makes use of the characterization of the Rock Springs Uplift website in Wyoming as an built-in case examine to demonstrate the applying of geological CO2 garage technology, rules, and conception in a real-world scenario.

The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American by Jon Gertner

By Jon Gertner

The definitive historical past of America's maximum incubator of technological innovation In this primary complete portrait of the mythical Bell Labs, journalist Jon Gertner takes readers in the back of one of many maximum collaborations among enterprise and technological know-how in background. formally the examine and improvement wing of AT&T, Bell Labs made seminal breakthroughs from the Twenties to the Nineteen Eighties in every little thing from lasers to mobile telephony, changing into arguably the simplest laboratory for brand spanking new principles on the planet. Gertner's riveting narrative lines the intersections among technological know-how, company, and society that allowed a cadre of eccentric geniuses to put the rules of the data age, delivering classes in administration and innovation which are as very important at the present time as they have been a new release ago.
