In a study inspired by author's observation of the spiraling out of control use of mathematics by bankers, financiers and economists, the Western world's reliance on arithmetic and geometry is traced back, with support from the works of Medieval historian Alfred Crosby and of Anthropologist of Knowledge Paul Jorion, to its Medieval and Antiquity roots. The author bases on different areas such as philosophy with François Jullien's Chinese thought and Michel Bitbol with his epistemological reflections.
There has been growing interest in the use of cannabis-based products for the treatment of a wide range of diseases, including epilepsy. A number of studies were published during the last 5 years
demonstrating efficacy of purified CBD for the control of a large spectrum of seizure-types, particularly those observed in severe childhood epilepsies, such as Lennox- Gastaut and Dravet syndromes. This book, co-authored by leaders in the field of epileptology, critically reviews recent data from clinical trials. Authors discuss issues related to pharmacology, drug interactions, efficacy, potential adverse events and
long-term effects on development and behaviour. Child and adult neurologists and all clinicians contributing to epilepsy care will find useful information on the best practices, when using purified CBD for the treatment of
Material appearance has emerged as a scientific topic in its own right rather recently and an increasing number of professionals concerned by this topic, belonging to various application areas, are entering this vast field. Thanks to the rise of imaging systems and visual rendering software, and the rapid development of accessible devices for color and gloss analysis, non-expert people can now check, for example, the compliance of a product with an appearance standard, or create a realistic virtual prototype. Most of these tools are based on optical concepts which are generally not in the forefront at an elementary level usage, but which are necessary for a consistent analysis of the specific cases studied. The objective of this book is precisely to introduce the fundamental notions of optics allowing the readers to understand the radiometric quantities measured with common devices, to learn how to analyze them, and to review some classical optics-based predictive models for various types of materials and structures. We have chosen to illustrate the theoretical notions with numerous examples and corrected exercises, easily transposable to a variety of materials: glass plates, polymer films, pigment layers, metals, papers and printed surfaces, coatings, etc. The book targets an audience of students, engineers and researchers who have a scientific background but not necessarily versed in optics, who are seeking sound bases in order to characterize the appearance of products and better comprehend the more advanced research currently being conducted in this area.
This cahier contains almost all the contributions to the two day meeting, commemorating the 70th year of the publication of Quine's seminal paper "New Foundations for Mathematical Logic", in which he describes for the first time the remarkable set theory

The health information systems of developing countries have made significant progress these last years. Nowadays, the challenge they are facing is that of their use and the acknowledgement of their usefulness by all health-systems players. Indicators at the national level would be of interest if health information systems are effectively operational.
Progressive myoclonus epilepsy strikes healthy children and has a slow yet devastating impact upon their lives. Almost all forms are caused by single gene defects, the majority of which were identified during the genomic era.
Reactor physics is the discipline devoted to the study of interactions between neutrons and matter in a nuclear reactor. This third edition of Applied Reactor Physics, addresses the fundamentals of reactor physics. Legacy numerical techniques are introduced with sufficient details to help readers implement them in Matlab. The fundamental approaches presented here provide a solid foundation for the more advanced and proprietary techniques that readers may encounter in production environments.
Applied Reactor Physics emphasizes the algorithmic nature of the numerical solution techniques used in reactor physics. Many numerical solution approaches described in the book are accompanied by Matlab scripts, and readers are encouraged to write short Matlab scripts of their own in order to solve the end-of-chapter exercises.
The third edition includes key improvements in the text, a completely rewritten appendix on numerical methods, new end-of-chapter exercises, and an extended bibliography.
Since 1984, the year of the publication of its first edition, the famous "Blue Guide" has been the international reference for paediatricians and neuropaediatricians with regard to epileptic syndromes in infants, children and adolescents.
This 6th edition reviews some of the most noteworthy developments in the field, particularly in epileptic syndromes, but also focuses on the genetic aspects of the syndromes and their development. Progress brought about by advances in neuroimaging is also discussed in addition to specific etiologies such as parasitic diseases and immune and autoimmune diseases.
The different backgrounds of the contributors - coordinators and authors - ensure that the book's longstanding reputation for objectivity and seriousness, built over almost 35 years, remain well-deserved.
This book written by the current leading specialists is recognized worldwide as the international reference in epilepsy.
Big Earth Data in Support of the Sustainable Development Goals 2019 presents 27 case studies of "Big Earth Data Science Engineering Program" (CASEarth) on the development of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) indicators and sustainability assessments in six SDGs, including: SDG 2 (Zero Hunger), SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), SDG 13 (Climate Action), SDG 14 (Life below Water), and SDG 15 (Life on Land). These cases provide in-depth, systematic research and evaluation results on the selected SDGs and indicators by means of data, method models, and decision support at global, regional, national and local scales. The 27 case studies covered 20 indicators, with focus varying from constructing databases, building index systems, and evaluating indicator progress. Each case study first clearly lists the corresponding SDG targets and indicators it addresses, and then proceeds with the research methods, data, analysis results, and prospects for future research. It can be seen that Big Earth Data as a new scientific methodology has started demonstrating its great value and potential for applications in monitoring and evaluating SDGs for China and developing countries around the world. The report concludes with a summary of the major progress in Big Earth Data for SDGs and future research priorities.
This book describes and comments on the results of research devoted to the studies of phase assemblages in the CaO-SiO2-Al2O3-Fe oxides chemical system, their stability and their evolution in our environment (temperature, pressure). Its aim is to be a research support, not only for researchers and development engineers but also more generally for others interested in materials sciences.
The book is divided in two parts; the first devoted to a description of `the system' using phase diagrams. The second explores the properties and uses of some of the minerals that are in widespread industrial and commercial use.
Much of the work presented in this book is fully original and corresponds to the research undertaken by François Sorrentino from his time at the chemistry department of the University of Aberdeen during the early 1970's, to recent years when he has resumed his interest in mineral research, particularly related to the synthesis of calcium silicates and calcium aluminates, and their industrial manufacture.
The business of upstream oil and gas industry is a complex process that involves multidisciplinary participation. Producing crude oil and natural gas from the subsurface reservoir rocks to the point of the selling terminal requires stage by stage processes that costs several hundreds of millions of dollars to the operating companies. Because of the capital intensive nature of upstream investments, every required process is challenged of its economic impact or benefits it will have on the project's net present value (NPV). The techniques applied in determining the economics of these processes and their selection criteria are addressed in the book.
This book guides the reader through these strategic processes, and presents the participants involved in the business of upstream oil and gas prospecting and the conditions that dictate the field development and investment decisions by investors. It also reveals the shared interests and relationships that exist between international oil companies (IOCs) and national oil companies (NOCs) in the exploration and exploitation of their hydrocarbon resources and reserves. This text will serve the purpose of teaching and learning to those in the energy and financial sectors, as the methods, tools, and techniques discussed throughout the chapters will equip students, tutors, experts, and professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge of Exploration and Production (E&P) projects and energy financing and investment. The principles of project management as it applies in upstream oil/gas projects are discussed as well. And the criteria for project ranking, selection, and budgeting which are sine qua non to project financing and execution are well documented in this book.
The first two volumes of the Chinese Plant Names Index (CPNI) cover the years 2000 through 2009, with entries 1 through 5,516, and 2010 through 2017, with entries 5,517 through 10,795. A unique entry is generated for the specific name of each taxon in a specific publication. Taxonomic treatments cover all novelties at the rank of family, genus, species, subspecies, variety, form and named hybrid taxa, new name changes (new combinations and new names), new records, new synonyms and new typifications for vascular plants reported or recorded from China. Detailed information on the place of publication, including author, publication name, year of publication, volume, issue, and page number, are given in detail. Type specimens and collections information for the taxa and their distribution in China, as well as worldwide, are also provided. The bibliographies were compiled from 182 journals and 138 monographs or books published worldwide. In addition, more than 400 herbaria preserve type specimens of Chinese plants are also listed as an appendix.
This book can be used as a basic material for Chinese vascular plant taxonomy, and as a reference for researchers in biodiversity research, environmental protection, forestry and medicinal botany.
The significance of the existence of the system is to realize its function and maintain its stability, that is, the reliability and stability of the reliability. Reliability is affected by factors, component properties and system structure, and its changes are complex. In order to solve this problem, the authors proposed the space fault tree theory in 2012. This book is the first time that the fundamental part of the theory has been presented internationally. The authors of the book are Pro. Tiejun Cui and Dr. Shasha Li.
What is the connection between planet Mars and Iron Man, nickel and the Seven Dwarves, or DNA, walnuts and Jupiter, fuchsine, the fox and Zorro, or even ammoniac and the god Amun?
This book tells the stories behind the naming of the elements, whether they are chemical elements of the Periodic Table, first published by Mendeleev in 1869, or organic elements which are components of DNA and RNA, as well as proteins, themselves elements of living kingdom, plants and animals. The book goes further, into materials and products which became essential elements of modern life.
Readers will learn that the names often refer to (or reveal) dreams and aspirations of men and women of their time. This truly amazing history of the names guides us through an incredible set of worlds: nature, astronomy, history, literature, journeys, and even takes in contributions from legends and mythology.
The present book is the continuation of a first volume, which dwelt on fairly classical materials science and environmental issues. This second volume of «Sustainable Materials Science» explores more broadly the connection of materials with the biosphere, the anthroposphere and society. There is a shift, therefore, from a STEM approach (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to an SSH one (Social Sciences and Humanities).
This book is meant for students, researchers, engineers, social scientists and concerned citizens interested in how materials, nature and people interact. This volume concentrates on emissions to air, water and soil, on the connection with health and toxicology, climate change and the c collapse of biodiversity. It shows how materials exhibit a social value, in addition to their engineering properties and economic valuation. Materials also provide ecosystems services in the realm of industrial ecology. They are definitely social constructs. They exhibit agency. Their role, in their value chains, can be described in terms of Actors Network Theory (ANT).
This book is unique in its approach of overarching so many fields of knowledge. There are excellent treatises on materials science and on industrial ecology. However, the connection of materials with the social dimension of sustainability is rarely discussed elsewhere and the pluridisciplinary cocktail of approaches used here is truly new. The book positions itself in a worldview of four intersecting dimensions: materials and energy, space and time.
This book reports on the state-of-the-art in terms of dosimetric, ionizing radiation metrology and radiation protection through exercises related to practical applications. For each problem, the book provides resolutions by means of analytical and semi-empirical formulas stemming from nuclear physics theory and the latest research contributions. For most applications (cavity theory, absorbed dose calculation for protons, quantities and dimensioning of X-ray generators...) the most recent data and calculation methods are part of the tools used. Moreover, in most applications/problems discussed, an inter-comparison with the numerical results obtained with a Monte-Carlo code commonly in worldwide use, MCNP, is presented. This code allows providing "actual" values in order to test the accuracy of the whole of analytical or semi-empirical results. For each case study, the numerical model is discussed, the input file is fully provided, and its structure is detailed. Some complex geometries involved in the modeled radiological scenes as well as the features used to generate, transport and track particles are described. On another note, emphasis is placed on the raw MCNP results normalization and on variance reduction techniques employed to improve or enable the convergence of statistical estimators toward the end result.
This book is aimed at an audience having a solid background in the addressed themes and is recommended for students from Physics Bachelor's degree. It can provide theoretical and technical information to engineers carrying out calculations and to graduate students performing their research work as well. The book is intended to be instructive and each problem is treated independently. The reader can therefore study the applications of interest in the desired order.
BEFORE WORLD WAR II there were no regular international physics conferences, with the notable exception of seven « SOLVAY COUNCILS ». The first Council in 1911 was the result of a miraculous chain of events. Impressed by Einstein's specific heat paper, Nernst wanted its quantum basis to be discussed by international experts. By a series of coincidences the planned « summit » was convened by Solvay, the Belgian industrialist and Maecenas. Thanks to
chairman Lorentz, the meeting was so successful that to this day similar Councils have been convened by the International Physics Institute, founded by Solvay and supported by his family. Lorentz chaired five Councils that testify to the transition from classical to modern physics. The first stimulated the physicists' interest in the quantum
problem. The fifth, in 1927, solved the problem by marking, according to Heisenberg, the completion of Quantum Mechanics. The book focuses on the personal relations between the physicists who actively participated in the quantum revolution. These relations came under great strain during the Great War, but the Councils survived thanks to Lorentz's and Solvay's faith in the universality of
France's leading nutritionist Dr. Jean-Michel Cohen pinpoints why you struglle with other weight-loss diets and shows how to achieve your ideal weight while embracing life's pleasures.
The Parisian Diet is a progressive weight-loss plan that keeps you motivated through the Café, Bistro, and Gourmet phases until you reach your ideal weight. Strongly opposed to "extreme" diets and the inevitable weight gain that ensues, Dr. Cohen proposes a sensible
and holistic approach that addresses the physical, psychological, and cultural factors that impact our ability to control our relationship with food. His method encourages a global change in attitude towards what we eat. Based on habits and food choices typical of the Parisian lifestyle, the simple, delicious, and satisfying menus emphasize the use of fresh
ingredients and a balanced intake throughout the day. The Parisian Diet is not a fl ashin- the pan fad, it's a new approach to food and a way to celebrate life, helping you look and feel your best.
Thanks to improved performance and lower manufacturing costs, lithium batteries originally marketed in 1991 by SONY to power portable equipment now play a key role in the expected massive development of electric mobility.
Connected to the power grid via the electrified vehicles in which they will be onboard, lithium batteries will also be used as a massive buffer for renewable energy, as well as network support tools (erasure of peak hours, frequency regulation, etc.), allowing, beyond their primary function (ensuring the mobility of the vehicle), to increase their usefulness.
These developments will profoundly transform our societies, and will allow not only to significantly reduce CO2 emissions and the consumption of fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal), but also, if they are conducted and coordinated effectively, contribute to economic growth.
The development of electric mobility thus offers a unique opportunity to match legitimate environmental protection requirements with industrial development objectives.
The purpose of this book is to provide the reader an overview of lithium battery technologies, current initiatives around the world, and some perspectives for the future.
Researchers at the CEA and the CNRS, the authors of this book have, all, an expertise based on several years of experience in the development of lithium battery systems and post-lithium-ion systems, on all the elements of the value chain, from the design and synthesis of electrode materials to the integration into the vehicle.
Dravet syndrome is a rare and severe type of epilepsy. "Severe myoclonic epilepsy in infancy" was first described in 1978 by Charlotte Dravet, who observed common features: onset in the first year of life, fever sensitivity, multiple seizure types, often including myoclonic seizures, and cognitive deterioration. Subsequent descriptions contributed to delineating a newly recognised epilepsy syndrome. Renzo Guerrini contributed to the knowledge of the genetic basis and response to anti epileptic drugs of Dravet syndrome. New molecules have emerged, and studies on cognitive development have qualified the impairment. Families' associations have also contributed to a better knowledge of the syndrome.
Charlotte Dravet and Renzo Guerrini present here the state of current knowledge about this epilepsy type.
This book aims to provide more information on the syndrome to those neurologists, child neurologists, and pediatricians confronted with infants, children and adults who either have or are suspected to have Dravet syndrome. Even if significant gaps in our understanding of the syndrome remain, the authors hope this contribution may assist in the understanding of the disease and optimization of treatments.
"Simplexity, as I understand it, is the range of solutions living organisms have found, despite the complexity of natural processes, to enable the brain to prepare an action and plan for the consequences of it. These solutions are simplifying principles that enable the processing of information or situations, by taking into account past experience and anticipating the future. They are neither caricatures, shortcuts, or summaries. They are new ways of asking questions, sometimes at the cost of occasional detours, in order to achieve faster, more elegant, more effective actions." A. B. As Alain Berthoz demonstrates in this profoundly original book, simplicity is never easy; it requires suppressing, selecting, connecting, thinking, in order to then act in the best way possible. And what if we, in turn, are inspired by the living world to process the complexity that surrounds us? Alain Berthoz is professor at the Collège de France where he is co-director of the Laboratoire de physiologie de la perception et de l'action. [Laboratory for the physiology of perception and action]. He is a member of the French Academy of Sciences, and is the author of Le Sens du mouvement [The Brain's Sense of Movement] and La Décision [Emotion and Reason].
