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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

As long as the human species has existed, men and women have had to contend with the unpredictable forces of nature. Geographer Barry A. Vann brings a unique perspective to this age-old struggle in this illuminating overview of human population shifts and their precarious relationship with climate change and geography. Vann takes us on a journey along the migration routes of the earliest modern humans and tells why our ancestors chose to settle down in places that can be best described as natural utopias. In the religiously oriented worldview of ancient peoples, such places took on a sacred aura of divine favor. Similarly, destructive events such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes were interpreted as expressions of divine wrath. Vann shows how the ancient texts of the Bible and the Qur’an offer glimpses of past climates that were distinctly different from the climate of our time. He also discusses the rise of technology as a means of controlling the threatening features of the natural world. Though technology has enabled humanity to cope with hostile climates, it has also created a false sense of security. Vann notes that population clusters are increasing in dangerous areas and that no technology can protect vulnerable groups from major-category hurricanes, tornadoes, or earthquakes. Finally, he considers our current anxieties regarding global warming, pointing out that this focus has obscured a good deal of historical and geological evidence for a return of another ice age. The Forces of Nature offers a challenging perspective on the precarious balance between fragile human communities and their often-threatening environments. From the Hardcover edition.

How do and how did people perceive, manage and respond to natural disasters? How are the causes of natural disasters explained in history, how are they explained today? This volume investigates relationships between forces of nature and human culture in a multidisciplinary context bridging science and the humanities. Forces of nature and cultural responses is divided into four sections: (1) ball lightnings, (2) earthquakes and tsunamis, (3) volcanic eruptions and plagues, and (4) hurricanes and floodings. Specifically, Section 1 investigates theories and case studies of ball lightning phenomena. Section 2 includes a psychological study on the impact of earthquakes on academic performance, a study on tsunami vulnerability and recovery strategies in Thailand and a study on the social and economic aftermaths of a tsunami and a hurricane in Hawaii. Section 3 consists of a chapter on volcanic eruptions and plagues as well as cultural responses in Ancient Times and a study on contemporary vulnerability and resilience under chronic volcanic eruptions. Section 4 investigates the impact of hurricane Katrina on the current jazz scene in New Orleans and cultural responses to floodings in The Netherlands in Early Modern Times.
