This book consists of chapters that focus specifically on single figures that worked on Descriptive Geometry and also in Mechanisms Sciences and contain biographical notes, a survey of their work and their achievements, together with a modern interpretation of their legacy. Since Vitruvius in ancient times, and with Brunelleschi in the Renaissance, the two disciplines began to share a common direction which, over the centuries, took... more...

The Arashiyama group of Japanese macaques holds a distinguished place in primatology as one of the longest continuously studied non-human primate populations in the world. The resulting long-term data provide a unique resource for researchers, allowing them to move beyond cross-sectional studies to tackle larger issues involving individual, matrilineal and group histories. This book presents an overview of the scope and magnitude of research topics and... more...

This book discusses the physical properties of noble fluids, operational principles of detectors based on these media, and the best technical solutions to the design of these detectors. Essential attention is given to detector technology: purification methods and monitoring of purity, information readout methods, electronics, detection of hard ultra-violet light emission, selection of materials, cryogenics etc. The book is mostly addressed to... more...

Research on biomaterials has been growing in the past 10 years due to the clinical needs in organ and tissue replacement and regeneration. Bioceramics are suitable candidates for many clinical applications, such as bone-like scaffolds, and bone regeneration materials. They include calcium phosphates, silica-based ceramics, such as bioglasses and mesoporous silica, carbon-based materials such as carbon nanotubes and graphene, and... more...

Geomaterials, or geologically derived materials, are of enormous economic importance to the global construction industry. If you are a geologist or petrographer who provides consultation to architects, civil engineers, and construction engineers, you must have the knowledge and expertise of the features and applications of geomaterials to provide accurate and safe recommendations. This is the first guide to the petrography of... more...

This book provides the reader with an illustrative overview concerning successful and widely used applications of organocatalysis in the field of natural product synthesis. The main focus will be on organocatalytic key-steps for each (multi-step) synthesis described, whereas other often particularly innovative transformations will be omitted, as this would be beyond the scope of this volume.
