Hermann Sicius stellt ausführlich die Elemente der zweiten Nebengruppe vor (Zink, Cadmium, Quecksilber, Copernicium), deren physikalische und chemische Eigenschaften relativ ähnlich sind. Auswirkungen der Lanthanoidenkontraktion erkennt man hier kaum noch. Cadmium steht in seinen Eigenschaften etwa zwischen dem Zink und dem Quecksilber. Zink und Cadmium haben negative Normalpotentiale, wogegen Quecksilber ein Halbedelmetall ist. Die Elemente dieser Gruppe geben meist ein oder zwei äußere Valenzelektronen ab, um eine stabile Elektronenkonfiguration zu erreichen. Für das höchste Element dieser Nebengruppe, das Copernicium, konnten bisher kaum chemische Untersuchungen durchgeführt werden. Es ist zu erwarten, dass es sich chemisch ähnlich wie Quecksilber verhält. Zink als Element kennt man seit dem 17. Jahrhundert, Cadmium seit 1817, wogegen Quecksilber schon in der Antike bekannt war. Die erstmalige Darstellung von Atomen des Coperniciums gelang 1996.<p></p>

<p>This brief describes a novel approach to overcome the disadvantages of hemp fibres in cementitious composites. The authors describe how the new approach includes the combination of thermal pre-treatment of nanoclay (producing calcined nanoclay) and chemical pre-treatment of fibre surfaces to improve the microstructure, mechanical, physical and thermal properties and also durability of hemp fibre reinforced cement composites. In this work, the synthesis of several materials are studied: nanoclay-cement nanocomposite, calcined nanoclay-cement nanocomposite, untreated & treated hemp fabric-reinforced cement composite, hemp fabric-reinforced nanoclay-cement nanocomposite and treated hemp fabric-reinforced nanoclay-cement nanocomposite. The influence of nanoclay on properties of cement paste and hemp fabric-reinforced cement composite is also presented together with the influence of NaOH pre-treatment of fibre surfaces on properties of hemp fabric-reinforced cement composite.</p><br /><br />The authors have aimed this brief at those working on environmental-friendly, biodegradable, building materials.<p></p>

<p><i>Kappa Distributions: Theory and Applications in Plasmas</i> presents the theoretical developments of kappa distributions, their applications in space plasmas, and how they affect the underpinnings of our understanding of space and plasma physics, astrophysics, and statistical mechanics--thermodynamics. As such, this book is ideal for geophysicists, especially those interested in space and planetary science, particularly space plasma and upper earth atmosphere. </p> <p>The book is separated into three major parts, theoretical methods, analytical methods in plasmas, and applications in space plasmas. The first part of the book focuses on basic aspects of the theory of kappa distributions, beginning with the connection of kappa distributions with solid statistical backgrounds, hence the non-extensive statistical mechanics. </p> <p>The book then moves on to plasma physics, and is devoted to analytical methods related to kappa distributions on various basic plasma topics, spanning linear/nonlinear plasma waves, solitons, shockwaves, and dusty plasmas. The final part of the book deals with applications in space plasmas, focusing on applications of theoretical and analytical developments in space plasmas from the heliosphere and beyond.</p><ul><li>Answers important questions, such as how plasma waves are affected by kappa distributions and how solar wind, and planetary/cometary magnetospheres can be modeled using kappa distributions</li><li>Presents the features of kappa distributions in the context of space plasmas, including how kappa indices, temperatures, and densities vary among the various species populations in different space plasmas</li><li>Provides readers with the information they need to decide which specific formula of kappa distribution should be used for a certain occasion and system</li></ul>

New exploration tools and techniques for a breakthrough paradigm of regional groundwater occurrence<br /> Fresh water is undoubtedly our most precious resource aside from the air we breathe, and the only commodity whose cost has steadily risen over time. At the same time, our understanding of the origins, pathways, and recharge mechanisms of the earth's most valuable "economic" mineral-groundwater-remains in the nineteenth century. It is ironic that this scientific anachronism is contributing to a global shortage of available fresh water supplies while oil, gas, and mineral discoveries have proliferated, vastly increasing the world's energy, precious metals, and industrial mineral reserves.<br /> Modern Groundwater Exploration details applications and results of proven twenty-first- century technologies and geological concepts adapted from the oil, gas, and mineral exploration industries for evaluating, developing, and managing previously undiscovered, massive, sustainable groundwater resources. Unprecedented in both its scope and authority, this timely book presents:<br /> * A new groundwater paradigm, coined Megawatershed, which accurately and comprehensively describes the earth's natural complex groundwater systems<br /> * Innovative exploration, drilling, and testing technologies that make major new ground-water sources more locatable and cost-effective to produce than ever before<br /> * Actual case studies in which megawatershed methods have identified vast quantities of new water and brought new hope to previously arid and desperately water-short locales<br /> * Chapters by former OECD DAC chairman Alexander R. Love, geopolitical analyst Dr. Ewan Anderson, and former director of the Trinidad and Tobago Water Resources Agency Dr. Utam Maharaj on the tremendous global implications of the megawater-shed paradigm. These experts explore the many beneficial applications of megawater-shed development, from macroeconomics to development of small island developing state (SIDS), and from critical environmental issues to water conflict resolution and the potential for a second "green revolution"<br /> The world's need for clean, dependable water is more urgent-and addressable-than ever before. Let Modern Groundwater Exploration introduce you to the authors' revolutionary megawatershed paradigm, along with the latest concepts and technologies for accessing vast reservoirs of groundwater-still today's safest, cleanest, and most plentiful water resource.

<p>This book provides the reader with an explanation of the origin and establishment of quantum mechanics together with a descriptive survey of developments up to the present day. The mathematics is presented in a digestible form yet following the original approach.</p><p>This second edition presents two new chapters to supplement and extend the first edition material. “Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics” surveys a wide range of current topics, including the multiverse, 't Hooft's ideas for a deterministic local field theory, a summary of the de Broglie-Bohm pilot-wave theory and Anthony Valentini's development of it, and speculative concluding comments on the way ahead.</p><p>“A Reflective Interlude” looks in more detail than hitherto at the origin and early years of wave-particle duality, with emphasis on trying to discover, as far as possible, what was the physical reality implied by de Broglie's work as it progressed.</p><p>Appendices include useful reminder notes on associated background topics, with a new appendix “Planck Units”.</p><p>With references to the original works, to reviews and useful bibliographies, the reader is uniquely well-equipped to delve further into the subject.</p><p>In addition to its importance for those studying physics, this book is also intended for those studying the history of science.</p>
