  • A Concordance to the Poetry of William Carlos Williamsby C.A. Gable

    William Carlos Williams was one of the most significant and influential English-language poets of the twentieth century. This concordance, the first of its kind, is designed to facilitate better access to and critical scrutiny of Williams’s body of poetical work. The concordance is a comprehensive non-contextual alphabetical listing of all the... more...

  • Fluid Dynamics I / Strömungsmechanik Iby C.A. Truesdell

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 103.60

    343 Whilst this may be so it is also true that this in itself is not sufficient to deter­ mine it completely. In fact the extent of the dead air region and the behaviour of the shear layer are also of prime importance and in short a unified treatment comprising external flow, boundary layer, shear layer and dead air region becomes necessary to complete... more...

  • Physical Theory as Logico-Operational Structureby C.A. Hooker

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 88.63

    In two earlier volumes, entitled The Logico-Algebraic Approach to Quan­ tum Mechanics (hereafter LAA I, II), I have presented collections of research papers which trace out the historical development and contem­ porary flowering of a particular approach to physical theory. One might characterise this approach as the extraction of an abstract logico-algebraic... more...

  • The Logico-Algebraic Approach to Quantum Mechanicsby C.A. Hooker

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 100.15

    The twentieth century has witnessed a striking transformation in the un­ derstanding of the theories of mathematical physics. There has emerged clearly the idea that physical theories are significantly characterized by their abstract mathematical structure. This is in opposition to the tradi­ tional opinion that one should look to the specific applications... more...

  • Chemistry of Virusesby C.A. Knight

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 88.63

    In 1963, the first edition of Chemistry of Viruses was published as a contribution to the series on viruses sponsored by Protoplasmatologia. An aim of the first edition was to review some major principles and techniques of chemical virology in a concise manner and to accompany this review with a compilation of pertinent references. It was anticipated... more...

  • Contemporary Research in the Foundations and Philosophy of Quantum Theoryby C.A. Hooker

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 88.63

    To mathematicians, mathematics is a happy game, to scientists a mere tool and to philosophers a Platonic mystery - or so the caricature runs. The caricature reflects the alleged 'cultural gap' between the disciplines­ a gap for which there too often has been, sadly, sound historical evidence. In many minds the lack of communication between philosophy... more...

  • Regelungstechnische stochastische Optimierungsverfahren in Unternehmensforschung und Wirtschaftstheorieby C.A. Schneeweiß

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 41.59

    Regelungstechnische stochastische Optimierungsverfahren markieren ein weites Feld in der allgemeinen Theorie der stochastischen Ent­ scheidungsprozesse. Sie sind wesentlich durch drei Faktoren bestimmt. Einmal haugen sie von der statistischen Struktur der auftretenden stochastischen Prozesse ab, zum anderen sind sie bestimmt durch den Typ des gewahlten... more...

  • Fluid Dynamics / Strömungsmechanikby C.A. Truesdell

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 88.63

    Sect 2. 317 tinuity surfaces 1. This suggests that a wake pressure Pw be associated with each flow past a bluff body, and that a wake parameter (2. 4) which plays the same role as the cavitation parameter (2. 1), be defined for the flow. This idea has been made the basis of a modified wake theory (ef. Sect. 11) which proves to be in good qu- titative... more...

  • The Chemistry of Matter Wavesby Jan C.A. Boeyens

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 103.60

    ​The quantum and relativity theories are considered to underpin all of science. This monograph argues against this premise on the basis of the incompatibility of the two theories and on some untenable philosophical implications of the quantum model. more...
