Science in Action

Lenihan
January 01, 1990

In Science in Action, John Lenihan shares his irrepressible enthusiasm for science. With characteristic wit and humor, he explains how science affects our daily lives in diverse areas such as medicine, poetry, politics, the environment, and the paranormal-cheerfully debunking some popular...

Quantum Theory without Reduction,

Cini
January 01, 1990

Quantum theory offers a strange, and perhaps unique, case in the history of science. Although research into its roots has provided important results in recent years, the debate goes on. Some theorists argue that quantum theory is weakened by the inclusion of the so called "reduction of the state...

The Physics and Technology of Laser Resonators

Denis Hall
January 01, 1990

Comprehensive yet concise, The Physics and Technology of Laser Resonators presents both the fundamentals and latest developments in laser resonator technology, including specific case studies. The book covers various types of resonators, including unstable, ring laser, and multifold laser. It also...

Database Systems in Science and Engineering

J.R Rumble, F.J Smith
January 01, 1990

Computerized databases provide a powerful everyday tool for data handling by scientists and engineers. However, the unique nature of many technical tasks requires a specialized approach to make use of the many powerful commercial database tools now available. Using these tools has proved difficult...

From the Watching of Shadows: The Origins of Radiological Tomography

S. Webb
January 01, 1990

From the Watching of Shadows: The Origins of Radiological Tomography presents the first complete history of body imaging by discrete sections, from its earliest beginnings around 1920 to modern times. Divided into two parts, the book is highly illustrated with many original figures from patents and...

Laser Spectroscopy of Highly Vibrationally Excited Molecules

Vladilen Stepanovich Letokhov
November 01, 1989

Laser spectroscopy has been perfected over the last fifteen years to become a precise tool for the investigation of highly vibrationally excited molecules. Intense infrared laser radiation permits both the multiple-photon resonant excitation and the dissociation of polyatomic molecules. In this...

Single-Mode Fiber Optics: Prinicples and Applications, Second Edition,

Jeunhomme
October 23, 1989

A basic, unified reference, rather than a description of the current experimental activity, presenting the scientific and engineering principles of single-mode optical fibers. It does, however, update discussions to reflect developments since the 1983 first edition, particularly those spurred by the...
