"Gold Nanoparticles for Physics, Chemistry and Biology offers an overview of recent research into gold nanoparticles, covering their discovery, usage and contemporary practical applications. This Second Edition begins with a history of over 2000 years of the use of gold nanoparticles, with a review of the specific properties which make gold unique. Updated chapters include gold nanoparticle preparation methods, their plasmon resonance and thermo-optical properties, their catalytic properties and their future technological applications. New chapters have been included, and reveal the growing impact of plasmonics in research, with an introduction to quantum plasmonics, plasmon assisted catalysis and electro-photon conversion. The growing field of nanoparticles for health is also addressed with a study of gold nanoparticles as radiosensibiliser for radiotherapy, and of gold nanoparticle functionalisation. This new edition also considers the relevance of bimetallic nanoparticles for specific applications. World-class scientists provide the most up-to-date findings for an introduction to gold nanoparticles within the related areas of chemistry, biology, material science, optics and physics. It is perfectly suited to advanced level students and researchers looking to enhance their knowledge in the study of gold nanoparticles."--Publisher's website.

"Symmetries play a fundamental role in physics. Non-Abelian gauge symmetries are the symmetries behind theories for massless spin-1 particles, while the reparametrization symmetry is behind Einstein's gravity theory for massless spin-2 particles. In supersymmetric theories these particles can be connected also to massless fermionic particles. Does Nature stop at spin-2 or can there also be massless higher spin theories. In the past strong indications have been given that such theories do not exist. However, in recent times ways to evade those constraints have been found and higher spin gauge theories have been constructed. With the advent of the AdS/CFT duality correspondence even stronger indications have been given that higher spin gauge theories play an important role in fundamental physics. All these issues were discussed at a recent international workshop in Singapore where the leading scientists in the field participated. This volume presents an up-to-date, detailed overview of the theories including its historic background, as well as the latest accomplishments in understanding the foundational properties of higher spin physics."--Publisher's website.

106. hitch: unchained mobility [2017] Online

Collection
ME310 Project Based Engineering Design
The Electronics Research Laboratory within the Volkswagen Group challenged a group of Standford Graduate Engineers partnered with a group of Engineers from Hasso-Plattner Institute (Germany) to improve user mobility within a car-sharing network. Specifically, the Corporate Sponsor wanted to address the issue of managing personal items while on the move without a private vehicle. As we investigated this issue, it became clear to us that one user group's mobility was impeded more than others with regard's to ride and car sharing; that user group being bikers. Bikers have always had to choose between biking or taking a ride sharing / car sharing vehicle. Bikers could not rely, for instance, on an Uber driver having a bike rack mounted to their vehicle. Until now. With hitch, the rack responsibility is no longer in the hands of the driver, but rather, the biker now has control of their own ride-hauling destiny. This is because hitch, unlike traditional bike racks, is mounted to the bike itself, rather than the car. Our bike rack conforms to and attaches to a wide variety of vehicles, accommodating whatever Uber, Lyft, or car sharing vehicles are in a given fleet. The basic mechanism of hitch relies upon using a tensegrity system of flexible and rigid members with magnetic tips, to quickly and easily attach to any vehicle. Preliminary testing has shown that a rider can attach to a standard vehicle in under a minute and detach in under 15 seconds, allowing ride sharing drivers to continue on their way with little disturbance. Further, the entire system tucks away cleanly within the bike frame itself and weights under 3 lbs, allowing the biker to ride without disruption. With hitch, we have introduced a new lifestyle for bikers. hitch will enable cyclists to extend their biking range, as well as give them freedom to change their modes of transportation to accommodate any change of plans.

"A unique individual with a fascinating life story, Ivar Giaever is a scientist who won the Nobel Prize in Experimental Physics in 1973. In his own words, Giaever relates an absorbing tale of how important luck and good fortune have been in shaping his life. He narrates the story of an ordinary childhood in Norway and an unremarkable undergraduate career at university. After finishing his engineering degree, he served in the Norwegian army and married his childhood sweetheart, Inger Skramstad. His desire to make a better life for his new family led Ivar to Canada and then to the United States. Even without an advanced degree in a scientific field, Ivar was given the opportunity to work with cutting-edge scientific researchers at General Electric R&D in Schenectady, New York. While there, he completed his PhD at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute — one of the United States' oldest technological universities. His work on superconductivity led to worldwide recognition and the Nobel Prize. This memoire is more than the story of an accomplished, world-renowned scientist: it is an engaging reminiscence of an independent, highly creative thinker and problem solver who loves games and puzzles, skiing and windsurfing, and time with friends and family. Dr Ivar Giaever's fascinating story intertwines his views on the nature of science, scientific processes, contemporary issues such as global warming, and the great benefits the Nobel Prize has afforded him. Written with humor and often tongue-in-cheek, "I am the Smartest Man I know" is one man's meditation on science, intellectual inquiry, and life itself."--Publisher's website.

"The book is aimed at graduate students and researchers with basic knowledge of Probability and Integration Theory. It introduces classical inequalities in vector and functional spaces with applications to probability. It also develops new extensions of the analytical inequalities, with sharper bounds and generalizations to the sum or the supremum of random variables, to martingales and to transformed Brownian motions. The proofs of many new results are presented in great detail. Original tools are developed for spatial point processes and stochastic integration with respect to local martingales in the plane. This second edition covers properties of random variables and time continuous local martingales with a discontinuous predictable compensator, with exponential inequalities and new inequalities for their maximum variable and their p-variations. A chapter on stochastic calculus presents the exponential sub-martingales developed for stationary processes and their properties. Another chapter devoted itself to the renewal theory of processes and to semi-Markovian processes, branching processes and shock processes. The Chapman–Kolmogorov equations for strong semi-Markovian processes provide equations for their hitting times in a functional setting which extends the exponential properties of the Markovian processes."--Publisher's website.

114. Kandodis: Unlocking Mastery [2017] Online

Collection
Learning, Design & Technology 2017
Throughout the US, student athletes, especially those who are aspiring to represent the US at the summer Olympics or become professional athletes, struggle to balance athletic training with academic pursuits. So focused are they on physical conditioning, practice, and tournaments that they neglect their academics, often resulting in weak academic foundations and precluding their success on standardized tests, a requirement for admission and scholarships to prep-schools and colleges. Without scholarships, many student athletes are unable to afford college. Regardless of whether these athletes ultimately pursue a career in sports, excelling on standardized tests opens up a wider array of career opportunities. Research shows that the refined ability to manage time, prioritize, and apply mastery outside of their sport distinguishes student athletes who successfully balance academics and athletics from other athletes. Given these findings, high school athletes need a supportive mobile community of peers who prioritize honing these skills such that they can transfer mastery techniques developed in their sports to a target area, namely standardized tests, and improve their long-term professional outcomes. Enter Kandodis, a mobile application with three key components: Journey, a series of lessons on time management, prioritization, and mastery; Projects, a tool to plan, execute, and curate project experiences; and Storyboard, a platform to share experiences and motivational videos. Having tested high fidelity wire-frame prototypes, I have confirmed the value to the learner; however, testing the actual mobile app is needed to validate the design herein described and measure the projected improvement in academic performance.
