This primer provides an introduction to the subject of surfaces at the level of undergraduates and first year postgraduates. There are four chapters, the first concerns basic thermodynamic material used to understand the properties of surfaces including; surface tension, Gibbs adsorption, surface pressure and surface phase equilibria, surfactants and micelles, wetting, detergency, and contact angle. The second chapter concentrates on gas adsorbtion at solid surfaces and covers topics including adsorbtion, Langmuir isotherms, heats of adsorbtion, BET isotherms, physisorbtion, chemisorbtion, precursor adsorbtion kinetics, well-defined surfaces, UHV, surface sensitivity and selectivity, surface diffusion and electrons interacting with matter. Chapter three then outlines the physico- chemical principles of XPS, AES, LEED, STM, AFM, work function measurements, UPS, TPD, molecular beams, HREELS and PAIRS and the types of fundamental surface information each of these techniques provides. The final chapter contains a series of worked examples and problems, bringing together the various strands developed in Chapters 1-3 in order to elucidate surface phenomena. The book is unique in its mix of 'Classical' and 'Modern' surface science and should be relevant to physicists, chemists and material scientists.

In the new edition of this widely praised textbook the authors have brought the work completely up to date by the addition of new material on numerous topics, and all of the chapters have been revised. In recent years, solid state chemistry has become a vital component of mainstream chemistry and materials science. Students, teachers and researchers need to understand the chemistry of solids because of the crucial role this plays in determining the properties of materials. An understanding of solid state chemistry is also essential in materials design, and chemists continue to discover many fascinating relationships between the structure and properties of solids. This text requires only an understanding of basic physics, chemistry and crystallography, and contains the most recent examples, case studies and references. It will be a valuable reference for advanced students and researchers studying solid state chemistry and materials science.

Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation...Darwin a vu de son vivant la théorie de l'évolution acceptée par la communauté scientifique et le grand public, alors que sa théorie sur la sélection naturelle a dû attendre les années 1930 pour être généralement considérée comme l'explication essentielle du processus d'évolution. Au XXIe siècle, elle constitue en effet la base de la théorie moderne de l'évolution. Sous une forme modifiée, la découverte scientifique de Darwin reste le fondement de la biologie, car elle explique de façon logique et unifiée la diversité de la vie.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the international Symposium on Graph Drawing, GD '95, held in Passau, Germany, in September 1995. The 40 full papers and 12 system demonstrations were selected from a total of 88 submissions and include, in their revised versions presented here, the improvements suggested during the meeting. This book also contains a report on the graph-drawing contest held in conjunction with GD '95. Graph drawing is concerned with the problem of visualizing structural information, particularly by constructing geometric representations of abstract graphs and networks. The importance of this area for industrial applications is testified by the large number of people with industrial affiliations, submitting papers and participating in the meeting.

The story begins with the unnamed narrator arriving at the house of his friend, Roderick Usher, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining of an illness and asking for his help. As he arrives, the narrator notes a thin crack extending from the roof, down the front of the building and into the adjacent lake. Roderick and Madeline are the only remaining members of the Usher family. Roderick later informs the narrator that his sister has died and insists that she be entombed for two weeks in the family tomb located in the house before being permanently buried. The narrator helps Roderick put the body in the tomb, and he notes that Madeline has rosy cheeks, as some do after death. Le narrateur (dont l'identité ne nous est pas connue) arrive à la maison de son ami Roderick Usher, ayant reçu de lui une lettre dans laquelle il se plaignait de maladie et réclamait sa présence. Cette maladie se manifeste par une hyper-acuité des sens et une grande anxiété. Madeline, la sœur jumelle de Roderick, est elle aussi malade, tombant dans des états de transes cataleptiques. Plus tard, il lui annonce que Madeline est décédée et qu'il a l'intention de conserver son corps durant 15 jours dans un caveau en attendant de procéder à l'enterrement définitif. Après avoir aidé son ami dans cette tâche, le narrateur constate une aggravation rapide de l'état de Roderick.
