Cet ouvrage vous proposera quelques expériences scientifiques à faire chez vous, tout en vous expliquant aussi simplement que possible le comment du pourquoi de chaque expérience.<br />Les expériences de cet ouvrage vous apprendrons à fabriquer un mini réacteur semblable à ceux des fusés, mettre en évidence le fer dans vos aliment, fabriquer du papier pH, fabriquer une lampe, etc...<br />Certaines expériences peuvent s’avérer dangereuses et ne devront être reproduites qu’en présence d’un adulte responsable. Il est à noter que rien de toxique ne sera utilisé lors des manipulations.<br />De plus, tous les réactifs utilisés dans les expériences se trouvent généralement dans votre cuisine ou peuvent facilement être acheté dans les supermarchés ou pharmacies. <br /><br /><br /><br />

“From A to Z - Introduction To Your MICROSCOPE" is intended to serve as a primary resource for young students and those who are just getting started with microscopes. In the book, the author extensively covers various topics on microscopy in a bid to help the reader master the foundational principles of microscopy. The following is a brief look at the main chapters in the book. <br /><br />Chapter 1 - 3<br /><br />From chapter 1 through to chapter 3, the author explains the history of microscopy (light microscopes) parts of the microscope and provides an introduction to light microscopy. <br /><br />Chapter 4 - 7<br /><br />Chapter 4 through to chapter 7 of the book are largely dedicated to the types of light microscopes and light microscope techniques. <br /><br />Chapter 8 - 10<br /><br />These chapters focus on setting up the microscope, focusing and the objectives. Having understood the different types of light microscopes and how they work in the previous chapters, these three chapters will inform the reader on how to actually use the microscope for making observations. <br /><br />Chapter 11 - 12<br /><br />Chapter 11 and 12 of the book focus on the various accessories and enhancements of a light microscope as well as applications of light microscopes. Having understood the basics of microscopy such as setting up a microscope and focusing to observe the specimen, it is important for users to understand the different types of accessories and enhancements used to increase functionalities and enhance the experience. <br /><br />Chapter 13 - 17<br /><br />Chapters 13 through to 17 educate the reader about the qualities of a good light microscope, different types of specimen and specimen preparation and ultimately give simple practice experiments to begin with, ending with microscope cleaning and maintenance as well as a definition of important terms.<br /><br />Any questions please feel free to contact the author H M Anderson, writer and researcher at MicroscopeMaster.com who is your resident microscope geek.

<p>This thesis demonstrates and investigates novel dual-polarization interferometric fiber-optic gyroscope (IFOG) configurations, which utilize optical compensation between two orthogonal polarizations to suppress errors caused by polarization nonreciprocity. Further, it provides a scheme for dual-polarization two-port IFOGs and details their unique benefits.</p><p>Dual-polarization IFOGs break through the restriction of the "minimal scheme," which conventional IFOGs are based on. These innovative new IFOGs have unique properties: They require no polarizer and have two ports available for signal detection. As such, they open new avenues for IFOGs to achieve lower costs and higher sensitivity.</p><div><br /></div><p></p><p></p>

<p>Science and technology are embedded in virtually every aspect of modern life. As a result, people face an increasing need to integrate information from science with their personal values and other considerations as they make important life decisions about medical care, the safety of foods, what to do about climate change, and many other issues. Communicating science effectively, however, is a complex task and an acquired skill. Moreover, the approaches to communicating science that will be most effective for specific audiences and circumstances are not obvious. Fortunately, there is an expanding science base from diverse disciplines that can support science communicators in making these determinations.</p> <p><i>Communicating Science Effectively</i> offers a research agenda for science communicators and researchers seeking to apply this research and fill gaps in knowledge about how to communicate effectively about science, focusing in particular on issues that are contentious in the public sphere. To inform this research agenda, this publication identifies important influences – psychological, economic, political, social, cultural, and media-related – on how science related to such issues is understood, perceived, and used.</p>

<p>The concept of utilizing big data to enable scientific discovery has generated tremendous excitement and investment from both private and public sectors over the past decade, and expectations continue to grow. Using big data analytics to identify complex patterns hidden inside volumes of data that have never been combined could accelerate the rate of scientific discovery and lead to the development of beneficial technologies and products. However, producing actionable scientific knowledge from such large, complex data sets requires statistical models that produce reliable inferences (NRC, 2013). Without careful consideration of the suitability of both available data and the statistical models applied, analysis of big data may result in misleading correlations and false discoveries, which can potentially undermine confidence in scientific research if the results are not reproducible. In June 2016 the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop to examine critical challenges and opportunities in performing scientific inference reliably when working with big data. Participants explored new methodologic developments that hold significant promise and potential research program areas for the future. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.</p>

In all the experimental sciences, good design of experiments is crucial to the success of research. Well-planned experiments can provide a great deal of information efficiently and can be used to test several hypotheses simultaneously. This book is about the statistical principles of good experimental design and is intended for all applied statisticians and practising scientists engaged in the design, implementation and analysis of experiments. Professor Mead has written the book with the emphasis on the logical principles of statistical design and employs a minimum of mathematics. Throughout he assumes that the large-scale analysis of data will be performed by computers and he is thus able to devote more attention to discussions of how all of the available information can be used to extract the clearest answers to many questions. The principles are illustrated with a wide range of examples drawn from medicine, agriculture, industry and other disciplines. Numerous exercises are given to help the reader practise techniques and to appreciate the difference that good design of experiments can make to a scientific project.
