Ein atmosphärisch dichter und psychologisch ausgefeilter Krimi, der im Busch Australiens spielt - dort, wo der Wald am undurchdringlichsten ist. Fünf Frauen unternehmen eine von ihrer Firma organisierte Wanderung durch den dichtesten Teil des australischen Buschs, ausgerüstet nur mit Kompass und Landkarte. Tage später kommen nur vier von ihnen zurück... Aaron Falk, Ermittler der australischen Finanzpolizei, und seine Kollegin Carmen müssen die vermisste Alice Russell finden, denn sie ist ihre zentrale Informantin bei Bailey Tennants, einem Unternehmen, das unter Verdacht steht, Geld zu waschen. Alice kennt nicht nur die Machenschaften der Firma, sondern auch die dunklen Geheimnisse ihrer Kolleginnen - an deren Vertuschung womöglich jemand ein vitales Interesse hat. Die Suche nach Alice ist ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, die Kälte und die Nässe - und die Angst, denn im Busch treibt sich womöglich ein Serienmörder herum. Doch die wahre Gefahr droht von ganz anderer Seite... Grausamer als die Natur ist nur der Mensch.

Die schlimmste Dürre seit Jahrzehnten lastet wie heißes Blei auf dem ländlichen Städtchen Kiewarra mitten im Nirgendwo. Das Vieh der Farmer stirbt, die Menschen fürchten um ihre Existenz. Als Luke Hadler, seine Frau und ihr Sohn Billy erschossen aufgefunden werden, glauben alle, dass der Farmer durchgedreht ist und erweiterten Suizid begangen hat. Aber Sergeant Raco hat seine Zweifel. Aaron Falk kehrt nach zwanzig Jahren zum ersten Mal nach Kiewarra zurück - zur Beerdigung seines Jugendfreundes Luke. Bald brechen alte Wunden wieder auf; das Misstrauen wirft seine langen Schatten auf die Kleinstadt. Und in der Hitze steigt der Druck immer mehr ... Ein beklemmender Thriller um Heimat, Loyalität und Vergebung. «The Dry katapultiert Jane Harper sofort in die Elite der Thrillerautoren. Phantastische Charaktere, ein einzigartiges und unglaublich atmosphärisches Setting, ein atemberaubender Plot. Dieses Buch hat einfach alles.» (John Lescroart) «Eines der beeindruckendsten Debüts, die ich je gelesen habe. Ich habe die glühende Hitze Australiens am eigenen Leib gespürt. Jedes einzelne Wort sitzt perfekt. Die Geschichte baut sich wie eine riesige Welle auf, bis sie schließlich auf die Erde kracht und alles auslöscht, was man vorher über diese fesselnde Geschichte gedacht hat. Lesen!» (David Baldacci, Bestsellerautor von «Der Auftrag», «Die Kampagne», «Am Limit»)

This is a new edition of Paul Davies' very highly regarded text on high-energy particle physics aimed at the scientifically educated general reader. Since the appearance of the first edition in 1979 there have been many major developments in the field, and the author has taken this opportunity to bring the text completely up to date. Paul Davies includes details of one of the most significant of these developments, the experimental discovery in 1983 of the W and Z intermediate vector bosons, and discusses the implications for the eventual unification of the four forces of nature. In addition to this, the discovery of the top and bottom quarks, the details and predictions of modern grand unified theories (GUTs), and the application of the results of high-energy physics to studies of the very early universe are all included.

The Story of Gauge Fields

Author: Kerson Huang

Publisher: World Scientific

ISBN: 9812706445

Page: 270

View: 7536

Gauge fields are the messengers carrying signals between elementary particles, enabling them to interact with each other. Originating at the level of quarks, these basic interactions percolate upwards, through nuclear and atomic physics, through chemical and solid state physics, to make our everyday world go round. This book tells the story of gauge fields, from Maxwell's 1860 theory of electromagnetism to the 1954 theory of Yang and Mills that underlies the Standard Model of elementary particle theory. In the course of the narration, the author introduces people and events in experimental and theoretical physics that contribute to ideas that have shaped our conception of the physical world.

This book is a popular description of the unity of the forces of nature for the general reader.At present, all interactions between bodies in nature are through to be ultimately due to the interaction of elementary particles and involve only four types of forces: universal gravitation, or gravitational forces, electromagnetic forces, nuclear forces and the so-called weak interaction.This book describes the principal properties of these four types of force and their "sphere of action", that is, the part they play in diverse natural processes that range from galaxies to the atomic nucleus and the mutual transformations of elementary particles. It includes the latest achievements of physics and gives a picture of the unresolved problems that confront science today.

The Principles of Rotation

“Forces of Nature” gives a new and comprehensive perspective of how nature was formed. With a radically new idea, the author opens up a whole new dimension by looking at the mechanical principles of the universe. Through his years of research, he has found that rotational mechanics have been able to explain the complexities of the different systems working under different conditions. From the infinitesimal to the astronomically large bodies, he summarizes it with five states of rotation. The first state of rotation states that a particle’s tangential velocity will increase proportionally with the radius from the center of the system. It follows that the particle’s tangential velocity will decrease after a certain point in the second state. The third state describes that a particle’s tangential velocity is inversely proportional to the radius of the system. The fourth and fifth states are extensions when a particle is subjected to rotation and translation simultaneously, parallel or perpendicular towards the direction of the motion respectively. In the absence of an internal force, the particle will continue to translate and rotate in the same direction with reference to the original system unless an external force is applied.

Thia book is based on the Kenneth Kassler endowed lecture delivered by Ito at Princeton University School of Architecture in the spring of 2009. The book is delivered primarily in Ito's voice, through the lecture transcript, which is the focus of the book, and through extended interviews, and a previously untranslated essay from 1980, all of which tie together his ideas of the interface of nature and society through the formal constructs of architecture. The publication is unique in bringing together unpublished visuals of built and un-built projects by Ito, as well as bringing together his theory spanning across his whole career, with commentary by respected scholars Stan Allen and Julian Worrall.

E = mc2 ist die berühmteste Formel der Welt. Mit ihr brachte Einstein es auf den Punkt: Energie und Masse sind zwei Seiten derselben Medaille und die Lichtgeschwindigkeit c ist ihr Wechselkurs. Doch warum besteht dieses so einfache Verhältnis? Wie ist Albert Einstein zu diesem Schluss gekommen? Und welche Folgen für das Verständnis des Universums ergeben sich daraus? Brian Cox, Professor für Physik und in England durch seine Sendungen auf BBC sehr bekannt, hat sich zusammen mit seinem Kollegen Jeff Forshaw, Professor für theoretische Physik, die scheinbar einfache Einstein-Gleichung vorgenommen, um sie mit viel Energie ausführlich und verständlich zu erklären.

In Forces of Nature, the authors investigate the relationships between the natural world and gender and sexuality. The authors explore the frameworks within which femininity and nature have been constructed, as well as the impact nature has had on our understandings of masculinity, homosexuality, and heterosexuality. For some writers nature has restorative powers, for others nature embodies violence and destruction. Yet, one common thread runs across all of the chapters in this collection: nature and animals can not be separated from the human experience. Forces of Nature brings to light the intimate connection humans have with the natural world and provides students and scholars with innovative readings of both canonical and noncanonical texts.

Joe Pickett’s friend’s past comes back to haunt everyone he cares about in this “violent, bloody, and quite satisfying thriller”* from #1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box. In 1995, Nate Romanowski was in a Special Forces unit abroad when his commander, John Nemecek, did something terrible. Now the high-ranking government official and cold-blooded sociopath is determined to eliminate anyone who knows about it—like Nate, who’s hidden himself away in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains. And he knows exactly how Nemecek will do it—by targeting Nate's friends to draw him out. That includes his friend, game warden Joe Pickett, and Pickett’s entire family. The only way to fight back is outside the law. Nate knows he can do it, but he isn't sure about his straight-arrow friend. And all their lives could depend on it.

"Starred Review. Reeves deploys his considerable writing skill in portraying Rutherford's personality ... capturing the full aspect of the man."—Booklist Born in colonial New Zealand, Ernest Rutherford grew up on the frontier—a different world from Cambridge, to which he won a scholarship at the age of twenty-four. His work revolutionized modern physics. Among his discoveries were the orbital structure of the atom and the concept of the "half-life" of radioactive materials. Rutherford and the young men working under him were the first to split the atom, unlocking tremendous forces—forces, as Rutherford himself predicted, that would bring us the atomic bomb. In Richard Reeves's hands, Rutherford comes alive, a ruddy, genial man and a pivotal figure in scientific history.
