Since 1995, when Costas Fotakis first brought together restorers and scientists to discuss the potential of lasers in art conservation, the field has grown enormously in importance, and today restorers and laser scientists work together to develop new applications. This book presents the more than six dozen research papers prepared for LACONA V (Lasers in Art Conservation), held in Osnabrueck/Germany in September 2003. The fifth congress once again gathered restorers, art historians, museum staff, laser scientists and laser manufacturers. The topics include, among others: laser cleaning of artworks (case studies and side effects), removal of former conservation layers, fundamentals of laser-artwork interaction, online monitoring and process control, laser diagnostics, spectroscopy for monitoring and identification, networks and cooperation projects.

This volume contains invited and contributed papers presented at the conference on ‘Microscopy of Semiconducting Materials’ held at the University of Cambridge on 2-5 April 2007. The event was organised under the auspices of the Electron Microscopy and Analysis Group of the Institute of Physics, the Royal Microscopical Society and the Materials Research Society. This international conference was the fifteenth in the series that focuses on the most recent world-wide advances in semiconductor studies carried out by all forms of microscopy and it attracted delegates from more than 20 countries. With the relentless evolution of advanced electronic devices into ever smaller nanoscale structures, the problem relating to the means by which device features can be visualised on this scale becomes more acute. This applies not only to the imaging of the general form of layers that may be present but also to the determination of composition and doping variations that are employed. In view of this scenario, the vital importance of transmission and scanning electron microscopy, together with X-ray and scanning probe approaches can immediately be seen. The conference featured developments in high resolution microscopy and nanoanalysis, including the exploitation of recently introduced aberration-corrected electron microscopes. All associated imaging and analytical techniques were demonstrated in studies including those of self-organised and quantum domain structures. Many analytical techniques based upon scanning probe microscopies were also much in evidence, together with more general applications of X-ray diffraction methods.

Narrow Gap Semiconductors 2007

Narrow gap semiconductors have provided an exciting field of research and show a number of extreme physical and material characteristics. They are the established material systems for infrared detectors and emitters, and with new developments in the technology these materials are emerging as a viable route to high speed, low power electronics. New kinds of narrow gap semiconductor, such as graphene and other composite nanocrystals, are also providing renewed interest in the underlying physics. The Thirteenth International Conference on Narrow Gap Semiconductors (NGS-13) was held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK in July 2007. The conference brought together experts and young scientists to discuss the latest findings and developments in the field. This book contains the invited and contributed papers which were presented at this meeting and serves to provide a broad overview of the current worldwide activities in narrow gap semiconductor research. The subjects covered are theoretical and material physics of narrow gap semiconductors and quantum heterostructures, spin related phenomenon including carrier dynamics and magnetotransport, carbon nanotubes and graphene as novel narrow gap material, as well as device physics including transistors, mid and far-infrared lasers and detectors.

Dieses Lehrbuch ist der erste Band einer dreiteiligen Einführung in die Analysis. Es ist durch einen modernen und klaren Aufbau geprägt, der versucht den Blick auf das Wesentliche zu richten. Anders als in den üblichen Lehrbüchern wird keine künstliche Trennung zwischen der Theorie einer Variablen und derjenigen mehrerer Veränderlicher vorgenommen. Der Leser soll in dem Erkennen der wesentlichen Inhalte und Ideen der Analysis geschult werden und sich ein solides Fundament für das Studium tieferliegender Theorien erwerben. Das Werk richtet sich an Hörer und Dozenten der Anfängervorlesung der Analysis. Durch zahlreiche Beispiele, Übungsaufgaben und Ergänzungen zum üblichen Vorlesungsstoff ist der Text ausserdem zum Selbststudium, als Vorlage für vertiefende Seminare und als Grundlage für das gesamte Mathematik- bzw. Physikstudium geeignet.

Erzbischof Hinkmar und die Folgen

der vierhundertjährige Weg historischer Erinnerungsbilder von Reims nach Trier

The present study is concerned with sources for the history of the dioceses of Reims and Trier since the 8th century. It starts with essential information on the history of these dioceses in the Early Middle Ages which can be traced back mainly to accounts by the influential Archbishop Hinkmar of Reims (845-882). The problems of Hinkmar s accounts and their continued influence are brought out against the contemporary background of the age of their composition, and their later deformations are followed over time. By taking up the trail of these deformations, the contingency of historical information and transmission becomes clear. "

Trotz ihres sozialen und politischen Engagements wurden die Logischen Empiristen – allen voran die Mitglieder des Wiener Kreises – nicht für ihr Interesse an Ethik und Wertphilosophie bekannt. Ihnen wurde sogar vorgeworfen, Werte und Moral zu zerstören. Die Autorinnen und Autoren liefern in diesem Band eine längst fällige Neubewertung logisch-empiristischer Positionen hinsichtlich der Frage von Werten und Moral. Sie beleuchten die wissenschaftlich-humanistisch motivierte Ablehnung traditioneller Ethik jenseits von vorherrschenden Klischeebildern.

Poetry. African American Studies. Cultural Writing. Music. William Parker was and remains firmly established in New York's downtown scene. He is not only one of the most important composers and bassists in the field of free improvisation but also plays a leading role as an integrating figure in the current New York avant-garde jazz scene. Parker is regarded as the leader, the uncrowned king, the father and high priest of young jazz musicians on New York's Lower East Side. WHO OWNS MUSIC? is a collection of William Parker's political writings, essays on music theory and poems. He writes as a musician, a teacher, a son and a father, but above all as a man who is intent upon making his own indelible imprint on the world.

insideout is a unique performance art piece that blurs the distinction between dance and architecture, and between performer and audience. Developed by Sasha Waltz, in collaboration with twenty performers and ten musicians from Asia, Europe, and North and South America, insideout takes the dancer's life stories as its changing values, lifestyles, and status symbols. insideout fully documents and captures the though-provoking complexity of this groundbreaking new work -- concert, dance performance, and installation all in one, through which the audience can freely move -- which debuted in Graz in Fall, 2003.
