Spreadsheets provide one of the most easily learned routes to scientific computing. This book uses Excel®, the most powerful spreadsheet available, to explore and solve problems in general and chemical data analysis. It follows the usual sequence of college textbooks in analytical chemistry: statistics, chemical equilibria, pH calculations, titrations, and instrumental methods such as chromatography, spectrometry, and
This book is a practical introduction to scientific computing and offers
BPSIC subroutines, suitable for use on a perscnal complter, for solving a
number of important problems in the areas of chmistry, biology and
pharmacology. Althcugh our text is advanced in its category, we assume only
that you have the normal mathmatical preparation associated with an
undergraduate degree in science, and that you have some familiarity with the

This richly illustrated publication about scientific visual literacy critically examines the images and icons of evolution as they appear in scientific and in popular contexts. It seeks to help teachers to understand the complexities of evolution through visual means and, in the process, to acquire the skills needed to read the visuals with accuracy and depth of interpretation.
The present volume of the series of English translations of M. Arago's works consists of his own
autobiography and a selection of some of his memoirs of eminent scientific men, both continental and British.
It does not distinctly appear at what period of his life Arago composed the autobiography, but it bears
throughout the characteristic stamp of his ardent and energetic disposition.
Concerns about the size and adequacy of the U.S. scientific, technical, engineering, and mathematics workforce have grown amid fears of a dwindling labor pool and concern that this may erode U.S. leadership in science and technology and could complicate mobilization of appropriate

When the Iraqi army withdrew from Kuwait during the Gulf war, it left the Kuwait oil fields in flames. Burning crude oil produces a wide range of pollutants. This report examines the peer-reviewed scientific literature regarding possible health effects on U.S. troops of exposure to the oil well fires. The author reports that

A study by Kenneth E. Harper indicates that word order in Russian scientific writing is sufficiently similar to that of English to permit word-for-word translation from Russian to English. Further study of Russian texts shows that word order in scientific Russian is sufficiently different to require analysis, for translation purposes, based on form and function rather than on word-for-word correspondence.
The order of subject and object is an adequate criterion for distinguishing between them when other grammatical properties are ambiguous.HARPERl AND LEHISTE2 have discussed the order of subjects and predicates in Russian scientific text. Lehiste concludes that "form and function" should be used to distinguish the subject from the predicate of a Russian sentence; although her conclusion may be accepted (subject to assumptions about the value of maintaining customary English order in the output), her dictum must be converted into programmable instructions....
(BQ) Looking back at the creation and accelerated development of the early U.S. and former-Soviet "space race," ebook Scientific American: Great Moments in Space Exploration profiles the intrepid American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts who boldly ventured where none had gone before. It also offers current facts on the most recent developments in space technology, including those involving international cooperation among countries.

Everything is easy when you know how! The skill of scientificwriting is no exception. To be a good writer, all you need to dois learn and then follow a few simple rules. However, it can be
difficult to get a good grasp on the rules if your learningexperience is a protracted process of trial and error. There is nothing more discouraging than handing a document that
has taken hours to write to a coworker who takes a few
minutes to cover it in red pen and expects you to find this a
rewarding learning exercise....
English as their native tongue are compelled to write
their work in English which, by chance, happens to be the de facto, universal language of
science. As a result, it compelled me to address many of the aspects of scientific writing from
the viewpoint of non-native English speaking authors and to emphasise that they are not as
disadvantaged as they perhaps may think. The language of science which conveys logic and
reasoning, is independent of the language in which it happens to be expressed.
Scientific writing is dynamic. For proof, you only have to compare a modern-day article with
one written, say, in the 1960s. Of course, some things such as the need for precision, clarity
and brevity seem to be immutable, but many others, like the use of the passive voice or the
first person—I or we—have changed remarkably in a relatively short time.
From graduate school to retirement, giving presentations is
part of the fabric of scientiﬁ c life. In the course of that life,
scientists generally progress from “entrance” poster presen-
tations, to short oral presentations, to longer invited lec-
Hundreds of people contributed to this book. Most of them were researchers who
attended workshops and courses in which we collectively applied concepts about thinking
and reasoning to the task of converting ideas and experimental data into focused articles for
publication. They came from many countries and spoke many languages.
