Seit ein mysteröses 'Ereignis' vor mehr als dreißig Jahren das Gebiet erschütterte, ist Area X von einer unsichtbaren Grenze umgeben. Niemand weiß genau, was dahinter geschieht, aber es gibt Gerüchte von einer sich verändernden und die Reste der menschlichen Zivilisation überwuchernden Natur, einer Natur, die ebenso makellos und bezaubernd wie verstörend und bedrohlich ist. Zuständig für das Gebiet ist eine geheime Regierungsorganisation, die sich 'Southern Reach' nennt und den Auftrag hat, herauszufinden, was hinter der Grenze geschieht. Aber keine der Expeditionen, die 'Southern Reach' in das Gebiet entsandte, um Erklärungen für das Unerklärbare zu finden, hatte bisher Erfolg. Die meisten der Expeditionen endeten in Katastrophen, bei denen letztlich alle Mitglieder ums Leben kamen, und die Zeit, um Antworten zu finden, wird knapp, denn Area X scheint sich immer schneller auszudehnen. "Auslöschung" ist der Bericht über die zwölfte Expedition. Sie besteht aus vier Frauen: einer Anthropologin, einer Landvermesserin, einer Psychologin und einer Biologin. Ihre Aufgabe ist es, die Geheimnisse von Area X zu entschlüsseln, das Gebiet zu kartographieren, Flora und Fauna zu katalogisieren, ihre Beobachtungen in Tagebüchern zu dokumentieren, vor allem aber sich nicht von Area X kontaminieren zu lassen. Doch es sind die Geheimnisse, die sie mit über die Grenze gebracht haben, die alles verändern werden ... Ein fesselnder, fantastischer Roman über eine unheimliche Welt und die Fremdheit in uns. Ein Roman von der Kraft eines Mythos.

The Southern Reach Trilogy begins with this Nebula Award-winning novel that "reads as if Verne or Wellsian adventurers exploring a mysterious island had warped through into a Kafkaesque nightmare world" (Kim Stanley Robinson). Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide; the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, the first volume of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy, we join the twelfth expedition. The group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and of one another, and, above all, avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers—they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding—but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

The subject of this book is the investigation of lattice imperfections in semiconductors by means of positron annihilation. A comprehensive review is given of the different positron techniques, whose application to various kinds of defects, e.g. vacancies, impurity-vacancy complexes and dislocations, is described. The sensitivity range of positron annihilation with respect to the detection of these defects is compared to that of other defect-sensitive methods. The most prominent results obtained with positrons in practically all important semiconductors are reviewed. A special chapter of the book deals with positron annihilation as a promising tool for many technological purposes. The theoretical background necessary to understand the experimental results is explained in detail.

A sociologist, philosopher, literary theorist and fiction writer, who referred to himself as "a saint, perhaps a madman," George Bataille made a habit of exploding the categories which we use to order our business of everyday life. This strange yet lucidly written book is not so much an interpretation of his style of thought and ideas, but rather, a no-holds barred attempt to pursue Bataille's ideas to their conclusion. The result is an analysis of Bataille through the application of his style of thought and ideas rather than through more conventional methods of academic argument. Addressing such deviance, political and legal theory, the history of religion or poetry, Land proves that to write discursively about Bataille it is sufficient to be a scholar, but to spread the virulent horror of his writings, it is necessary to be an uncompromising devotee of Bataille's thought. -- Publisher description.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass dieser Titel berwiegend aus Inhalten besteht, die im Internet kostenlos erh ltlich sind (z.B. aus der Wikipedia-Enzyklop die). Annihilation bedeutet in der Physik die gegenseitige Vernichtung zweier entgegengesetzter Erscheinungen. In der Elementarteilchenphysik versteht man darunter den Prozess der Paarvernichtung (auch: Paarzerstrahlung), bei dem ein Elementarteilchen und sein Antiteilchen sich zusammen in andere Teilchen verwandeln. Anf nglich war nur die Positron-Elektron-Umwandlung in Photonen, also Teilchen ohne Ruhemasse, bekannt; dies erkl rt die Bezeichnung Vernichtung" oder Zerstrahlung." Mit den Hochenergie-Experimenten (siehe unten) hat der Begriff sich erweitert und schlie t nun auch F lle ein, bei denen zwar das urspr ngliche Teilchen-Antiteilchen-Paar verschwindet, aber neue Paare mit Ruhemasse, wie Myonen oder K-Mesonen, entstehen. In jedem Fall wird die Energie des urspr nglichen Teilchenpaares (Ruheenergie und Bewegungsenergie) nicht annulliert," sondern tritt in anderer Form wieder auf.
