Topics in Stereochemistry, previously edited by «the father of stereochemistry» Ernest L. Eliel, is a longstanding, successful series covering the most important advances in the field. The much-anticipated Volume 26 on stereochemical aspects of organolithium compounds includes chapters on the following topics: * Asymmetric Deprotonations Using Chiral Lithium Amide Bases * Self-Regeneration of Stereocenters (SRS) via Stereolabile Axially Chiral Intermediates * Overview of Carbanion Dynamics and Electrophilic Substitutions in Chiral Organolithium Compounds * Oxiranyllithiums as Chiral Synthons for Asymmetric Synthesis * Test on the Configurational Stability/Lability of Organolithium Compounds * Mechanism and Stereochemical Features in Asymmetric Deprotonation Using RLi/(-)-Sparteine Bases * Dynamic Resolutions of Chiral Organolithiums Volume 26 of Topics in Stereochemistry marks the end of an era, while developing a bridge to the next generation. A new generation in publishing, parallel to a new generation in Stereochemistry mandated a new venue and modus operandi for Topics. Zurich, the home of Werner and Wislicenus, has a unique heritage in Stereochemistry. Fortunately, the Wiley family's publishing partnerships include Verlag Helvetica Chimica Acta, a house with a reputation for superior quality in publishing. Indeed, within the pages of its namesake periodical, Helvetica Chimica Acta, one finds many of the seminal research works of stereochemistry's giants. As such, a transfer of editorial operations to Zurich and a collaboration bringing Topics as a series closer to periodical status provides a growth platform for the future.

One of the most magical concoctions in childrens literature, Lewis Carrolls tale follows Alice into the upside-down, inside-out world of Wonderland where she attends the tea party of the Mad Hatter and plays croquet in the court of the Queen of Hearts. This is a beautifully illustrated edition of a much loved classic.
This book, comprising two volumes, presents current research and original investigations in the theory of large cracks capable of propagating and initiating partial or complete fracture in deformable solids. The book covers a wide variety of problems relating to the behavior of bodies with cracks, and ranges from crack extension criteria to the solution of complex problems of fracture mechanics. Also, the authors consider critical and subcritical states of equilibrium under single, multiple, thermal and dynamic loadings in elastic, viscoelastic, elastic-plastic and piezoelectrical bodies with cracks. Experimental methods for the determination of crack-resistance characteristics of materials are exposed.The second volume, which we present to the reader, contains a systematic study of special problems of fracture mechanics, among which are the effects of hydrogen-containing environment, the corrosion in presence of electromagnetic fields, thermal and dynamical loadings, electromagnetic interaction in piezoelectrical bodies, and others. The solution of these problems is entailed with considerable mathematical difficulties. For this reason, a high level of mathematical knowledge is required. The first volume, published as a separate book, contains the main criteria and methods of elastic and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics.The book is intended for scientists and practicing engineers working in the field of fracture mechanics and also for post-graduates and senior students specializing in solid mechanics and strength of machine parts.
This book discusses statistical methods that are useful for treating problems in modern optics, and the application of these methods to solving a variety of such problems This book covers a variety of statistical problems in optics, including both theory and applications. The text covers the necessary background in statistics, statistical properties of light waves of various types, the theory of partial coherence and its applications, imaging with partially coherent light, atmospheric degradations of images, and noise limitations in the detection of light. New topics have been introduced in the second edition, including: Analysis of the Vander Pol oscillator model of laser light Coverage on coherence tomography and coherence multiplexing of fiber sensors An expansion of the chapter on imaging with partially coherent light, including several new examples An expanded section on speckle and its properties New sections on the cross-spectrum and bispectrum techniques for obtaining images free from atmospheric distortions A new section on imaging through atmospheric turbulence using coherent light The addition of the effects of “read noise” to the discussions of limitations encountered in detecting very weak optical signals A number of new problems and many new references have been added Statistical Optics, Second Edition is written for researchers and engineering students interested in optics, physicists and chemists, as well as graduate level courses in a University Engineering or Physics Department.

Tribology is the “science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion” and encompasses the study of friction, wear and lubrication. By extension biotribology is usually defined as the tribological phenomena occurring in either the human body or in animals. Therefore, it is possible to consider tribological processes that may occur after implantation of an artificial device in the human body and the tribological processes naturally occurring in or on the tissues and organ of animals. Animals, including humans, possess a wide variety of sliding and frictional interfaces. The authors aim to provide some advances in research in biotribology. They cover several aspects of biotribology such as tribology of synovial joints and artificial replacements; wear of screws and plates in bone fractures repair; wear of denture and restorative materials; friction of the skin and comfort of clothing; wear of replacement heart valves; tribology of contact lenses and ocular tribology; biotribology on the microscale and nanoscale levels, etc. This book can be used as a research text for final undergraduate engineering courses (for example, materials, biomedical, etc.) or for those studying the subject of biotribology at the postgraduate level. It can also serve as a useful reference for academics, biomechanical researchers, biologists, chemists, physicists, biomedicals and materials engineers, and other professionals in related engineering, medicine and biomedical industries.

The House by the Churchyard is a novel by Sheridan Le Fanu published in 1863 that combines elements of the mystery novel and the historical novel. Set in the village of Chapelizod, near Dublin, in the 1760s the story opens with the accidental disinterment of an old skull in the churchyard, and an eerie late-night funeral. This discovery relates to murders, both recent and historical whose repercussions disrupt the complacent pace of village affairs and change the lives of many of its notable characters forever. Charm and chilling darkness abound in equal measure in one of the greatest novels of a Victorian master of mystery.
In “The Mad Scientist” the science that brought us revived dinosaurs now results in a pithecanthrope stalking the streets of the City of Light, climaxing in an amazing car chase involving a foe from the previous volume. Will the perpetually inept Inspector Caponi just make things worse? Probably. Then in the second episode, “A Dusting of Mummies,” the mummy glimpsed in Adele’s apartment in previous episodes comes alive! The volume concludes with the sudden startling (and delightful) incursion of some characters familiar to Tardi fans, and a shocking climax that leaves the future of both Adele and this series in doubt as World War I erupts. (It’s the only story in the entire series not to feature an “in our next episode” teaser.)
