Over the last 10 years the attention of the scientific and industrial research has been focused, with increasing interest, on the Applied MHD Technologies (Albano et al., 2000; Garnier, 2000; Li et al., 1996; Tani et al., 2000). Several applications, such as Electromagnetic Stirring, Braking and Shaping, have been studied in order to improve the steel... more...

For the first time ever, science gives us the answers to questions like "what's the chance of a team that wins the League or Premiership also winning the Cup? Can you predict how many goals will be scored? What's the best height for footballers? Is the winning team the best team?" The Science of Soccer is a fascinating book, dealing with a wide range... more...
