#### Foundations of Measurement

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 140.00From the Foreword is infinite in multitude; and I mean by the sand not only that which exists about Syracuse and the rest of Sicily but also that which is found in every region whether inhabited or unhabited. Again there are some who, without regarding it as infinite, yet think that no number has been named which is great enough to exceed its multitude.... more...

#### Foundations of Measurement

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 139.95Foundations of Measurement offers the most coherently organized treatment of the topics and issues central to measurement. Much of the research involved has been scattered over several decades and a multitude of journals--available in many instances only to specialties. With the publication of Volumes two and three of this important work, Foundations... more...

#### Measurement and Probability

Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 97.97Measurement 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 International Publishing 2014; US$ 92.53This book recasts classical Gaussian error calculus from scratch. The new edition thoroughly restructures and systematizes the text and offers numerous numerical examples, showing how to understand uncertainties, to localize the true values of measured values. more...

#### Heavy Neutral Particle Decays to Tau Pairs

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 97.97This book describes an innovative reconstruction algorithm for tau decays and details how it was instrumental in providing a measurement of Z decay to tau lepton pairs. It guides the reader through how complicated physics analyses are performed at the LHC. more...

#### Metrology and Theory of Measurement

De Gruyter 2013; US$ 174.14Metrology 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... more...

#### Metrology for Fire Experiments in Outdoor Conditions

Springer New York 2013; US$ 46.80Natural 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$ 144.00This 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 Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 336.42The Springer Handbook of Metrology and Testing presents the principles of Metrology, and testing methods relevant to chemical and microstructural analysis. Readers will find extensive coverage of the measurement and testing of materials properties and performance, including modeling and simulation. more...
