The Best Short Works of Richard P. Feynman

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

This collection from scientist and Nobel Peace Prize winner highlights the achievements of a man whose career reshaped the world's understanding of quantum electrodynamics. The Pleasure of Finding Things Out is a magnificent treasury of the best short works of Richard P. Feynman-from interviews and speeches to lectures and printed articles. A sweeping, wide-ranging collection, it presents an intimate and fascinating view of a life in science-a life like no other. From his ruminations on science in our culture to his Nobel Prize acceptance speech, this book will fascinate anyone interested in the world of ideas.

Techshock Caution

Future Under Repair

Techshock Caution

In typical Dick Morley fashion, the Father of the PLC doesnA't hold back expressing his views on a world undergoing major technological change. From start to finish, this easy-to-read book reveals DickA's strong opinions on technological analysis, predictive success, and some theory regarding marketing in engineering and industry, as well as a little food for thought on PLCs. Any proposed plans seldom survive such an autopsy. Dick skewers conventional wisdom and provides insight into his unique reality. He strongly recommends you have two cups of coffee before digesting his latest thought-provoking prose. Good luck! A"There are plenty of people who write about the future and technological changes. Morley not only writes about the future, heA's helped create it. HeA's not only analyzed changes, heA's driven them. HeA's one of the few, not the plenty.A" "Gary S. Vasilash, Editorial Director" Automotive Design & Production, Time Compression A"Morley brings back memories of minicomputers, drum memories and clunky computers from my own past. This is a literary explosion of brilliant observations, from the mind of a man who has always been 10 years ahead of the rest of us.A" "Rich Merritt, former Technical editor of" InTech," " I&CS," and" Control "magazines" A"Conversations with Dick are always edgy. Either you are on the edge of your seat eagerly anticipating the next revelation, or Dick is making you think hard about how what is being said can or will affect you. "Techshock" will do that, too, by taking you out of your comfort zone A-- making you look at technology, how you apply it, how it affects you and does it need to? This book may not be a comfortable read but it is a fun way to prepare yourself for the potential A'next big thing.A'A" "Ian Verhappen, Industrial Networks Consultant/Specialist" A"Typical Morley writing A-- tugs on the brain some and leaves you with a smile at the same time. I highly recommend this book.A" "Rick Caldwell, President, SCADAware, Inc."

Photon Physics at the LHC

A Measurement of Inclusive Isolated Prompt Photon Production at √s = 7 TeV with the ATLAS Detector

Photon Physics at the LHC

This thesis reports on the first studies of Standard Model photon production at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) using the ATLAS detector. Standard Model photon production is a large background in the search for Higgs bosons decaying into photon pairs, and is thus critical to understand. The thesis explains the techniques used to reconstruct and identify photon candidates using the ATLAS detector, and describes a measurement of the production cross section for isolated prompt photons. The thesis also describes a search for the Higgs boson in which the analysis techniques used in the measurement are exploited to reduce and estimate non-prompt backgrounds in diphoton events.

Electrochemical Energy Systems

Foundations, Energy Storage and Conversion

Electrochemical Energy Systems

This book is for anyone interested in renewable energy for a sustainable future of mankind. Batteries, fuel cells, capacitors, electrolyzers and solar cells are explained at the molecular level and at the power plant level, in their historical development, in their economical and political impact, and social change. Cases from geophysics and astronomy show that electrochemistry is not confined to the small scale. Examples are shown and exercised.

X-ray Studies on Electrochemical Systems

Synchrotron Methods for Energy Materials

X-ray Studies on Electrochemical Systems

This book is your graduate level entrance into battery, fuel cell and solar cell research at synchrotron x-ray sources. Materials scientists find numerous examples for the combination of electrochemical experiments with simple and with highly complex x-ray scattering and spectroscopy methods. Physicists and chemists can link applied electrochemistry with fundamental concepts of condensed matter physics, physical chemistry and surface science.
