#### Measurement and Probability

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00Measurement plays a fundamental role both in physical and behavioral sciences, as well as in engineering and technology: it is the link between abstract models and empirical reality and is a privileged method of gathering information from the real world.Is it possible to develop a single theory of measurement for the various domains of science and... more...

#### Measurement Uncertainties in Science and Technology

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00This book recasts the classical Gaussian error calculus from scratch, the inducements concerning both?random and unknown systematic errors. The idea of this book?is to create a formalism being fit to localize the true values of physical quantities considered - true?with respect?to the set of predefined physical units. Remarkably enough, the prevailingly... more...

#### Heavy Neutral Particle Decays to Tau Pairs

Springer 2013; US$ 129.00The work presented in this thesis spans a wide range of experimental particle physics subjects, starting from level-1 trigger electronics to the final results of the search for Higgs boson decay and to tau lepton pairs. The thesis describes an innovative reconstruction algorithm for tau decays and details how it was instrumental in providing a measurement... more...

#### Metrology and Theory of Measurement

De Gruyter 2013; US$ 195.00Metrology is the science of measurements. It is traceable to measurement standards, thus to the concept of measurement accuracy, which is used in all natural and technical sciences, as well as in some fields of social sciences and liberal arts.The key problem is one of obtaining knowledge of the physical reality, which is observed through a prism of... more...

#### Metrology for Fire Experiments in Outdoor Conditions

Springer 2013; US$ 49.99Natural fires can be considered as scale-dependant, non-linear processes of mass, momentum and heat transport, resulting from a turbulent reactive and radiative fluid medium flowing over a complex medium, the vegetal fuel. In natural outdoor conditions, the experimental study of natural fires at real scale needs the development of an original metrology,... more...

#### How Tall Was Milton?

National Science Teachers Association 2012; US$ 8.21In this funny fairy tale, it takes a village to figure out the height of Milton the friendly giant. The townspeople’s attempts to gauge just how big he is will entertain young readers as they learn the importance of standard units of measurement. How Tall Was Milton? even accounts for the real-life origin of such silly-sounding units as feet.... more...

#### Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology and Testing Ix

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 234.00This volume contains original, refereed worldwide contributions. They were prompted by presentations made at the ninth AMCTM Conference held in Göteborg (Sweden) in June 2011 on the theme of advanced mathematical and computational tools in metrology and also, in the title of this book series, in testing. The themes in this volume reflect the importance... more...

#### Springer Handbook of Metrology and Testing

Springer 2011; US$ 469.00This Springer Handbook of Metrology and Testing presents the principles of Metrology -- the science of measurement -- and the methods and techniques of Testing -- determining the characteristics of a given product -- as they apply to chemical and microstructural analysis, and to the measurement and testing of materials properties and performance, including... more...

#### Distributed Large-Scale Dimensional Metrology

Springer 2011; US$ 209.00The field of large-scale dimensional metrology (LSM) deals with objects that have linear dimensions ranging from tens to hundreds of meters. It has recently attracted a great deal of interest in many areas of production, including the automotive, railway, and shipbuilding sectors. Distributed Large-Scale Dimensional Metrology introduces a new paradigm... more...

#### Night at the Community Center

Shell Education 2010; US$ 8.99A community center has many exciting activities to choose from. You can play games, swim, and even learn how to cook there. As you read, you can compare the size of a tennis racket to a ping pong racket, use cubes to measure the world’s smallest snake, and even use feet to measure the length of a basketball court. What would you use to measure... more...
