When the Stanmore parents leave for India, their children, Charles, Caroline and Charlotte, go to their great uncle for a summer holiday in his old house. They find out that one of their ancestors was a witch, the uncle tells them about her lost magic book called The Language of Flowers, and the Three C's start looking for it willing to try different magical charms and spells. Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) was the author of world famous books for children - the tales of fantastical adventures, journeys back in time and travel to magical worlds.
Beam explains the emerging ANSI standard of the C programming language, using examples to provide first-hand experience in entering code, compiling, and running powerful programs. Novices and experts alike will appreciate the logical explanations and clear format.
The present volume in the organogermanium series describes mononuclear compounds containing only germanium-carbon and germanium-hydrogen bonds (Chapter 1.3). Germanium hydrides with other additional non-carbon ligands, such as halogen or oxygen bonded groups, appear in later chapters according to the Gmelin principle of the last posi tion. Compounds with Ge-H and Ge-O bonds have already been described in Volume 5, Section 126.96.36.199, pp. 50/62. The present volume covers the literature to the end of 1992 and includes many references up to 1994. The nomenclature recommended by IUPAC has been generally adhered to. However, compound names were largely avoided, as most of the compounds are presented in tables and are only identified by their formulas. Many of the data in the tables appear in abbreviated form without units; general explanations are given on pp. X/XI. The volume contains an empirical formula index (p. 327) and a ligand formula index (p.341). The editor wishes to express his gratitude to the former author, Professor J. E. Drake, and to Professor J. Satge for his kind advice and fruitful collaboration. Thanks are due also to Dr. A. R. Pebler for editing the English text and to Mr. H.-G. Karrenberg for drawing the numerous formulas and molecular structures.

Emerging Nanoelectronic Devices focuses on the future direction of semiconductor and emerging nanoscale device technology. As the dimensional scaling of CMOS approaches its limits, alternate information processing devices and microarchitectures are being explored to sustain increasing functionality at decreasing cost into the indefinite future. This is driving new paradigms of information processing enabled by innovative new devices, circuits, and architectures, necessary to support an increasingly interconnected world through a rapidly evolving internet. This original title provides a fresh perspective on emerging research devices in 26 up to date chapters written by the leading researchers in their respective areas. It supplements and extends the work performed by the Emerging Research Devices working group of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS). Key features: • Serves as an authoritative tutorial on innovative devices and architectures that populate the dynamic world of “Beyond CMOS” technologies. • Provides a realistic assessment of the strengths, weaknesses and key unknowns associated with each technology. • Suggests guidelines for the directions of future development of each technology. • Emphasizes physical concepts over mathematical development. • Provides an essential resource for students, researchers and practicing engineers.
Markus Berndt explains the observable evolution and persistence of differences in financial systems by elaborating on the influence of network effects on corporate governance systems. He develops a coherent theoretical framework pulling together existing agency theories and providing new theoretical foundations wherever there is a gap in the current theoretical understanding of corporate governance.
C++ Illustrated is designed from the ground up to teach modern approaches to C++ programming: it will help you master all the skills, paradigms, and development practices you need to build tomorrow's production applications. Dylan Smith and Steve Smith introduce today's best programming practices upfront, reinforce them throughout the book and a powerful accompanying code tutorial based on their pioneering tutorial/testing framework. All you'll need to use their code tutorial is a modern, easy-to-install C++14 compiler and the cross-platform CMake build management system. As you progress, you'll modify the framework itself, acclimating yourself to working in a large, complex C++ code base. Numerous hands-on project chapters cover engaging topics ranging from cryptography to 3D graphics and game programming. By the time you're finished with the book, tutorial, and example projects, you'll have all the skills you need to work on professional C++ assignments.
