Advances in Bio-Mechanical Systems and Materials (Advanced by Holm Altenbach, Andreas Oechsner

By Holm Altenbach, Andreas Oechsner

This monograph provides the newest effects regarding bio-mechanical platforms and fabrics. The bio-mechanical platforms with which his book is involved are prostheses, implants, clinical operation robots and muscular re-training platforms. To symbolize and layout such platforms, a multi-disciplinary technique is needed which comprises the classical disciplines of mechanical/materials engineering and biology and medication. The problem in such an strategy is that perspectives, recommendations or perhaps language are often various from self-discipline to self-discipline and the interplay and conversation of the scientists needs to be first built and altered. in the context of materials' technological know-how, the publication covers the interplay of fabrics with mechanical structures, their description as a mechanical system  or their mechanical homes.

SuperFuel: Thorium, The Green Energy Source for the Future

A riveting examine how another resource of power is revoluntionising nuclear energy, promising a secure and fresh destiny for thousands, and why thorium was once sidelined on the top of the chilly struggle

In this groundbreaking account of an strength revolution within the making, award-winning technological know-how author Richard Martin introduces us to thorium, a radioactive point and replacement nuclear gasoline that's a ways more secure, purifier, and extra considerable than uranium.

At the sunrise of the Atomic Age, thorium and uranium in shut festival because the gas of the longer term. Uranium, with its skill to suffer fission and bring explosive fabric for atomic guns, received out over its extra pacific sister point, relegating thorium to the dustbin of technology.

Now, as we grapple with the perils of nuclear power and rogue atomic guns, and mankind confronts the threat of international weather switch, thorium is re-emerging because the missed strength resource as a small crew of activists and outsiders is operating, with the aid of Silicon Valley traders, to construct a thorium-power undefined.

In the 1st publication mainstream e-book to take on those concerns, Superfuel is a narrative of rediscovery of a protracted misplaced expertise that has the ability to rework the world's destiny, and the tale of the pacifists, who have been sidelined in favour of atomic weapon hawks, yet who can wean us off our fossil-fuel dependancy and ward off the chance of nuclear meltdown for ever.

Transcendence: The Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity

Transhumanism is a world circulation that advocates using technology and know-how to beat the "natural" obstacles skilled via humanity, via such advancements as:

the Singularity—the production of desktop intelligences that exceed the capacities of our organic brains
the skill to copy person minds and placed them into solid-state our bodies or digital environments
individual keep an eye on over psychological and emotional states for reinforcing functionalities and/or ecstasies
Some of this can be occurring now. a few it really is nonetheless within the minds of dreamers.

In approximately 90 A-Z entries, Transcendence presents a multilayered examine the accelerating advances in synthetic intelligence, cognitive technological know-how, genomics, info know-how, nanotechnology, neuroscience, area exploration, artificial biology, robotics, and digital worlds which are making transhumanism a truth. Entries diversity from Cloning and Cyborg Feminism to fashion designer infants and Memory-Editing medications. additionally, the publication notes ancient predecessors and personalities, either in mythology and history—ranging from Timothy Leary to Michael Jackson to Ray Kurzweil. It additionally introduces the tradition round Transhumanism, masking all of the geeky obsessions of the Transhumanist move.

The Meaning of Science: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science

Technological know-how has produced motives for every little thing from the mechanisms of insect navigation to the formation of black holes and the workings of black markets. yet how a lot do we belief technological know-how, and will we really recognize the realm via it? How does technology paintings and the way does it fail? and the way can the paintings of scientists help—or hurt—everyday humans?

Progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science Volume I

This can be the 1st of a chain of books on Ultrafast extreme Laser technological know-how, a newly rising interdisciplinary learn box, spanning atomic and molecular physics, molecular technological know-how, and optical technological know-how. Its development is being prompted via the hot improvement of ultrafast laser applied sciences. Highlights of this quantity contain severe VUV laser--cluster interplay, resonance and chaos-assisted tunneling, and the consequences of the carrier-envelope part on high-order harmonic new release.
