This edition of Acetaria is a faithful reprint of the First Edition of 1699, with the correction of a few obvious
typographical errors, and those noted in the Errata of the original edition. Whereas no attempt has been made
to reproduce the typography of the original, the spirit has been retained, and the vagaries of spelling and
punctuation have been carefully followed; also the old-style S [s] has been retained. Much of the flavour of
Acetaria is lost if it is scanned too hurriedly; and one should remember also that Latin and Greek were the
gauge of a man of letters, and if the titles...
Our primary objective herein is not to determine how approximate calculations introduce
errors into situations with accurate hypotheses, but instead to study how rigorous
calculations transmit errors due to inaccurate parameters or hypotheses. Unlike quantities
represented by entire numbers, the continuous quantities generated from physics,
economics or engineering sciences, as represented by one or several real numbers, are
compromised by errors.

Since its first demonstration in 1960, the laser has found widespread application in diverse
areas including medicine, materials processing, optical communications and information
technology. The number of engineers and scientists working on lasers or in laser related
fields is continuously increasing as new applications for this exciting technology are being
discovered. This also means that more and more people need to gain a detailed knowledge
of lasers and their characteristics.
Our analysis will emphasize a mechanism of propagation of the effects of cloud
computing which depends on the endogenous market structures. Through business
creation, the adoption of cloud computing is going to enhance competition in each
sector and to increase production and lower mark ups. This will have a positive im-
pact on consumption so as to contribute to the recovery of the EU economy. Most
of all, part of these effects are going to be positively related to the speed of adop-
tion of the new technology.
There are many classes of green bonds that have been issued or proposed, and they have taken on a
confusing plethora of names such as green gilts, green retail bonds, green investment bank bonds, green
multilateral development bank green bonds, green corporate bonds, green sectoral
bonds, rainforest bonds and index-linked carbon bonds. One class of green bonds that has attracted
attention recently is the climate bond, which is a type of green bond issued to raise capital for investments
in projects which specifically mitigate or adapt to climate change.
This book is intended as a general introduction to modern physics for science and
engineering students. It is written at a level which presurnes a prior tull year’s
course in classical physics, and a knowledge of elementary differential and
The material discussed here includes probability, relativity, quantum mechanics,
atomic physics, statistical mechanics, nuclear physics and elementary
We have known the close connection between changing eletric fields
and magnetic fields. They can create each other and form a system of
Electromagnetic fields can propagate in the space (vacuum or material
environment). We call them electromagnetic waves. They play a very
important role in science and technology.
This volume, derived from the Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics (2004), is
intended as a desk reference for the fundamentals of engineering electromagnetics.
Because electromagnetics provides the underpinnings for many technological fields such
as wireless communications, fiber optics, microwave engineering, radar, electromagnetic
compatibility, material science, and biomedicine, there is a great deal of interest and need
for training in the concepts of engineering electromagnetics.
This book is intended for courses at least at Masters level to provide an introduction
to the field of signal processing in telecommunications. The text therefore
deals mainly with source coding, channel coding, modulation and demodulation.
Adaptive channel equalisation, the signal processing aspects of adaptive antennas
as well as multi-user detectors for CDMA are also included. Shorter sections on
link budget, synchronising and cryptography are also included. Network aspects
are not discussed and very little is given about wave propagation.
“Diffraction” of light can be understood as any deviation of light rays
from their geometrical propagation line (that is straight in a homogeneuos material)
An example (shown in the picture):The edge of shadow is never
perfectly sharp. Some light
appears in the geometrical
shadow, and there are dark
and light fringers in the area of
Airborne instruments designed for remote sensing of the surface of the Earth and
its atmosphere are important sources of information regarding the processes occurring
on Earth. This information is used widely in the fields of meteorology, geography,
geology, and oceanology, among other branches of the sciences.
Lately, there has been a growing interest in electromagnetic wave propagation in
complex systems such as modern materials and structures. This book is intended to
give the explanatory 20 chapters which consist of original works of the leading scientists
in the field of wave propagation which produced theoretical and experimental
methods in this field of research and obtained important results.
Textbooks on radio antennas and propagation have changed little
over the last 50 years. Invariably they base themselves on the
famous electromagnetic equations described by James Clerk Max-
well, a great nineteenth-century genius of theoretical physics
(Torrance, 1982). Maxwell's equations brilliantly encompassed all
the electromagnetic phenomena known by his time (except photo-
electric long-wave cut-off, which remained ...
A major topic in this book is the study of propagation and scattering
of waves by randomly distributed particles. We first consider scattering by a
single particle. This chapter and the next discuss and derive the scattering
characteristics of a single particle. Both exact and solutions are studied.
Scattering by a single ...
Corticosteroids are often used as an adjunct in the treatment of various forms of tuberculosis (TB) and for the prevention
of complications, such as constrictive pericarditis, hydrocephalus, focal neurological deficits, pleural adhesions, and intestinal
strictures. Notwithstanding, they have been proven in clinical trials to improve the following outcomes only — death or
disability in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-seronegative patients with tubercular meningitis and tubercular
Chapter 1 is for readers who have less background in partial differential equations (PDEs).
It contains materials which will be useful in understanding some of the jargon related to the
rest of the chapters in this book. A discussion about the classification of the PDEs is
presented. Here, we outline the major analytical methods. Later in the chapter, we introduce
the most important numerical techniques, namely the finite difference method and finite
element method. In the last section we briefly introduce the level set method.
