The evolution of hydrogen gas at the cathode is one of the reactions most frequently occurring in industrial cells. Besides the obvious case of water electrolyzers, hydrogen evolution occurs at the cathode of chlor-alkali and chlorate cells, which are among the most intensive electrochemical processes. On the other hand, hydrogen liberation is the cathodic process in cells containing aqueous solutions or protonated solvents where the wanted reaction takes place at the anode.
Before entering upon the subject-matter of these new memoirs, I must explain an hypothesis which will undoubtedly seem strange, but in the absence of which it is impossible for me to proceed intelligibly: I mean the hypothesis of a God.
To suppose God, it will be said, is to deny him. Why do you not affirm him?
Is it my fault if belief in Divinity has become a suspected opinion; if the bare suspicion of a Supreme Being is already noted as evidence of a weak mind; and if, of all philosophical Utopias, this is the only one which the world no...

THE EVOLUTION OF CIRCUIT SWITCHING
The current circuit switched network concept has remained essentially unchanged from the original electromechanical Strowger exchange (see the Preface for an explanation of how this exchange came by its name). At its most basic level the telephone network comprises transmission paths and switching nodes. The design of a circuit switch is based on the ability to physically create a path (circuit) from one network element to another and to hold this path open for the duration of the interaction (call)....
Ecologic Evolution of Cambrian Trilobites
Skeletonized Cambrian trilobites are both varied and abundant and provide potential proxies for understanding the evolution of nonskeletonized arthropod groups. Soft- and hard-part morphology suggests that Cambrian Trilobita.
These lectures intend to give a self-contained exposure of some techniques for
computing the evolution of plane curves. The motions of interest are the so-called
motions by curvature. They mean that, at any instant, each point of the curve moves
with a normal velocity equal to a function of the curvature at this point. This kind of
evolution is of some interest in differential geometry, for instance in the problem of
"Ah, well," an American visitor is said to have soliloquized on the site of the battle of Hastings, "it is but a
little island, and it has often been conquered." We have in these few pages to trace the evolution of a great
empire, which has often conquered others, out of the little island which was often conquered itself.

Soon after the first sequences of proteins and nucleic acids became available
for comparative analysis, it became apparent that they can play a key role for
reconstructing the evolution of life. The availability of the sequence of several
proteins prompted the birth of the field of molecular evolution, which aims
at both the reconstruction of the biochemical history of life and the understanding
of the mechanisms of evolution at the molecular level through the
analysis of the macromolecules of existing organisms.
The security world is constantly changing,
both in the context in which it has to operate,
and in terms of what it can offer as a response
to a wide range of threats. This is true across the
world. Indeed, globalization and the impact of
technology are just two trends that have seen
to that. As a consequence, security has become
more complicated; or, at least, the breadth of
knowledge that a good security operative, at any
level, needs to draw upon has been stretched
Understanding the origins of humanity has long been one of our foremost
intellectual pursuits, and one that greatly interests the general public as
evidenced by museum attendance and by numerous media productions
and general interest publications. Progress toward an improved understanding
of our heritage is a continuing challenge for the scientific community, requiring
advances in a range of disciplines that include archaeology, anthropology, geology,
biology, oceanography, and genetics, and particularly research advances in
areas where two or more of these fields intersect.
Th ere is something about being human that instills in us a sense of wonder.
When we stop to think about it, the very idea of life seems such a mystery.
Where did we come from? How did life begin? When we look at the
sky, we wonder about the vastness of the universe and whether other life
may exist there. If we look through a microscope at a drop of pond water,
we are amazed at the variety of tiny creatures we see.
Since cells form the very basis of life, it is only natural that our sense
of wonder extends to the cell. Where did...
