              Dirac's Dream tells the story of the quest for the magnetic monopole, the long lost brother of the electron, in Maxwell's four famous equations. The existence of the magnetic monopole, first suggested by the curious asymmetry of Maxwell's equations from over 150 years ago, if con...firmed would mark a revolutionary paradigm shift in our understanding of the universe, resounding across the entire field of physics, from electromagnetic theory to cosmology.This scientific quest has involved, directly or indirectly, some of the greatest minds of physics: Maxwell, Thomson*, Poincare, Heaviside, Curie*, Dirac*, Jordan, Schwinger*, Polyakov, 't Hooft*, Gross*, Sorkin, Wu, Yang* and Cho (* denotes recipient of a Nobel Prize). Kicked off by Dirac's groundbreaking work, monopoles have been sought at each new accelerator as the high-energy frontier is pushed to greater and greater energies. This book is ideal reading for anyone - from professional researchers to the interested layperson - wishing to understand the historical search for the magnetic monopole in the context of contemporary physics developments and research efforts.

              This important book deals with the question of what the mechanical treatment of solids is, and why the reactivity of solids is changed as a result of mechanical treatment (called mechanical activation). It outlines the possible human activities where these phenomena can be used (...including the synthesis of new materials processing of mineral raw materials, synthesis and modification of pharmaceuticals, preparation of catalyst, cosmetics).The book is concerned with a young but fast-developing branch of chemical science -- mechanochemistry. It discusses the main ideas features of this field and its possible applications in industry. It is intended for readers interested in the problems of modern chemistry, and for students in chemical departments of higher education establishments, as material for extracurricular reading.

              This book aims to provide a unique introduction to the mathematics of computing with imperfect information. This rapidly developing field has been represented by a growing number of diverse contributions to academic journals and the proceedings of international conferences. The a...im here is to bring a new coherence and clarity to this complex and expanding body of research, and to give a comprehensive overview that will be invaluable to both experts and research students new to the area.In many real-world contexts, it is necessary to make decisions based on incomplete information. This book deals with the mathematics underlying the practical computations that it entails. The theory impacts on a wide range of fields, within mathematics and beyond, and has given rise to unexpected connections and deep and interesting ongoing research. This book is essential reading for mathematicians and computer scientists concerned with the computational structure of information, and many others for whom computing in a real context involves working on emergent data.

              Waging Cooperation In Asia: A Balanced View Towards Regional Integration (Hardback)

              Being open and particularly dependent on trade with G2, the Asian economy should have suffered greatly during the Great Recession. Yet, the region has performed remarkably well. The strength of domestic demand is only a part of the explanation. The other important part is a risin...g economic integration, featured by, among others, growing intra-Asian trade and trade between Asia and other emerging market economies. This book argues that this trend is likely to continue even with the G2 recovery, because it can provide better opportunities for a more balanced and sustainable development. The future intensity and nature of integration, however, depends on how the regional authorities will frame and pursue economic cooperation that has started to proliferate after the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. To the extent that the past success of the Asian miracle has been driven by unilateral liberalization, and the recent trend of rising regional integration is more market-driven than institution-driven, unlike in the European case, the goals of regional cooperation should be distinct. The book distills some of the important facts and provides the analysis of regional integration in Asia. One of the author's premises is that, regional integration should be viewed in a balanced way: it can provide benefits and opportunities, but it can also be costly and carry some risks. It is in this context that regional cooperation should be placed. Given the free flows of capital in the current global economic uncertainty, regional cooperation in the provision of financial safety nets is particularly highlighted.
