AUTOMATIQUE
Linear feedback controls
Mark A. Haidekker, ...-1 vol. (XIV-268 p.)-629.8 HAI-Elsevier-2013"The design of control systems is at the very core of engineering. Feedback controls are ubiquitous,
ranging from simple room thermostats to airplane engine control. Helping to make sense of this wideranging field, this book provides a new approach by keeping a tight focus on the essentials with a
limited, yet consistent set of examples. Analysis and design methods are explained in terms of theory
and practice. The book covers classical, linear feedback controls, and linear approximations are used
when needed. In parallel, the book covers time-discrete (digital) control systems and juxtaposes timecontinuous and time-discrete treatment when needed. One chapter covers the industry-standard PID
control, and one chapter provides several design examples with proposed solutions to commonly
encountered design problems. The book is ideal for upper level students in electrical engineering,
mechanical engineering, biological/biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and agricultural and
environmental engineering and provides a helpful refresher or introduction for graduate students and
professionals" (Editor's description)
Reliability and maintenance
Frank Beichelt, Peter Tittmann-1 vol. (X-332 p.)-629.801 BEI-CRC Press-2012"Reliability and Maintenance: Networks and Systems gives an up-to-date presentation of system and
network reliability analysis as well as maintenance planning with a focus on applicable models.
Balancing theory and practice, it presents state-of-the-art research in key areas of reliability and
maintenance theory and includes numerous examples and exercises. Every chapter starts with
theoretical foundations and basic models and leads to more sophisticated models and ongoing
research. The first part of the book introduces structural reliability theory for binary coherent systems.
Within the framework of these systems, the second part covers network reliability analysis. The third
part presents simply structured maintenance policies that may help with the cost-optimal scheduling of
preventive maintenance. Each part can be read independently of one another. "(Editor's Notes)
BIOGRAPHIE
Conversations with myself
Nelson Mandela-1 vol. (XXI-454 p.)-920 MAN-Macmillan-2010"This book comes with a foreword by President Barack Obama. Nelson Mandela is one of the most
inspiring and iconic figures of our age. Now, after a lifetime of taking pen to paper to record thoughts
and events, hardships and victories, he has opened his personal archive, which offers an unprecedented
insight into his remarkable life. "Conversations With Myself" gives readers access to the private man
behind the public figure: from letters written in the darkest hours of Mandela's twenty-seven years of
imprisonment to the draft of an unfinished sequel to "Long Walk to Freedom". Here he is making
notes and even doodling during meetings, or recording troubled dreams on the desk calendar of his
cell on Robben Island; writing journals while on the run during the anti-apartheid struggles in the early
1960s, or conversing with friends in almost seventy hours of recorded conversations. In these pages,
he is neither an icon nor a saint; here he is like you and me. An intimate journey from the first stirrings
of his political conscience to his galvanizing role on the world stage, "Conversations with myself" is a
rare chance to spend time with Nelson Mandela the man, in his own voice: direct, clear, private."

BIOLOGIE
The brain that changes itself
Norman Doidge,...-1 vol. (XVI- 427 p.)-573.8 DOI-Penguin-2007"A new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the old notion that the human brain is
immutable. Psychoanalyst Doidge traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists
championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they've transformed--people whose mental
limitations or brain damage were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that
rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised,
aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to
move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character
traits changed. Using these stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and
education, Dr. Doidge has written an inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our
brains, human nature, and human potential." (Editor’s Description)
Quand la vie remplace le silicium
Dennis Shasha,... Cathy Lazere,...-1 vol. (XII-207 p.)-570 SHA-Dunod-2011"[...] La première partie de ce livre explique par exemple comment des chercheurs s’efforcent de
comprendre les mécanismes naturels de l’apprentissage et de l’évolution pour concevoir des vaisseaux
spatiaux plus autonomes et des systèmes industriels plus sûrs. La deuxième partie décrit différents
travaux de recherche qui contrôlent et utilisent des entités biologiques, comme de l’ADN, des
bactéries ou des virus, pour construire des nano-robots, des virus affaiblis ou des circuits biologiques.
La troisième partie présente quatre architectures totalement révolutionnaires, qu’il s’agisse
d’ordinateurs massivement parallèles orientés vers des problèmes de modélisation biologique ou
cryptographique, ou d’ordinateurs analogiques, ou encore d’ordinateurs quantiques. [...] " (Quatrième

DOCUMENTATION
L'avenir des bibliothèques
Sous la direction de Florence Roche et Frédéric Saby-1 vol. (224 p.)-025 ROC-Presses de l'Enssib2013"L'évolution des bibliothèques est permanente ; du traitement des collections, sanctuarisées, protégées,
le métier de bibliothécaire, après s'être emparé des technologies de l'information, est devenu plus
technique : il doit aujourd'hui se tourner vers un public plus exigeant, plus inconstant, aux attentes plus
imprévisibles et plus diverses. Depuis le vote de la loi relative aux libertés et responsabilités des
universités, dite loi LRU, en août 2007, et le passage aux responsabilités et compétences élargies
(RCE), les missions, la place de la bibliothèque au sein de la communauté académique ne vont plus de
soi. Cet ouvrage s'intéresse donc particulièrement aux bibliothèques universitaires ; il installe l'usager,
le lecteur, l'étudiant au centre des réflexions ; il traite des usages des étudiants, du devenir des
collections, du rôle des personnels, de la politique de services au public, des indicateurs appropriés et
conclut par une vision prospective et stratégique de la bibliothèque. Au-delà des personnels des
bibliothèques universitaires, cet essai s'adresse à tous les directeurs et professionnels, quel que soit le
type d'établissement ; il nous interroge sur le devenir de nos professions et sur la plus-value apportée à
la communauté nationale ; il intéressera à ce titre un lectorat plus large, soucieux de comprendre la
place qu'occupe aujourd'hui la bibliothèque dans la construction du savoir." (Quatrième de couverture)

Le web sémantique en bibliothèque
Emmanuelle Bermès-1 vol. (171 p.)-025 BER-Electre | Éditions du Cercle de la librairie-2013"Présentation des différentes briques technologiques qui constituent le web sémantique. La première
partie explique les objectifs et les promesses du web de données pour les bibliothèques, la seconde
présente quatre cas pratiques d'application à leur usage : publier des données en RDF, enrichir les
pages web, agréger les données, lier les données avec le LED (linked enterprise data)." (Présentation
de l'éditeur)
Le livre numérique
Bernard Prost, Xavier Maurin, Mehdi Lekehal-1 vol. (126 p.)-025 PRO-Éd. du Cercle de la librairie2013"Le livre numérique a signé son véritable acte de naissance avec sa normalisation liée au format ePub,
presque conjointement à l'apparition des tablettes, avant de s'introduire dans les téléphones, les
liseuses, les ordinateurs. Croissance mesurée en France, explosive aux États-Unis et plus généralement
dans le monde anglophone, le marché du livre numérique est une réalité qui s'impose à tous les
éditeurs papier, mais également à de nombreux pure-players qui y voient des opportunités nouvelles.
Cet ouvrage apporte une vision pragmatique du livre numérique (ce qu'il faut connaître, sans pour cela
être technicien) et se destine à tous ceux qui souhaitent découvrir ou qui découvrent la réalité de ce
marché : décideurs, éditeurs, fabricants et, bien sûr, auteurs curieux ou ambitieux." (Quatrième de
couverture)
Manuel de constitution de bibliothèques numériques
Sous la direction de Thierry Claerr et Isabelle Westeel-1 vol. (407 p.)-025 CLA-Éd. du Cercle de la
librairie-2013"Dans la continuité du Manuel de la numérisation, un guide pratique pour aider aux différentes étapes
de conception et de construction d'une bibliothèque numérique à l'ère du web sémantique. Ce manuel
aborde les questions juridiques et techniques liées au web 2.0, au web mobile et au web de données et
contient un guide de préservation et d'archivage des collections numériques." (Présentation de
l'éditeur)
Regards croisés sur les métiers des sciences de l'information
Jean-Philippe Accart-1 vol. (122 p.)-025 ACC-Editions KLOG-2014" Cet ouvrage s’attache à porter des regards croisés sur les métiers des bibliothèques, des archives, de
la documentation et des musées. À une époque où la référence à la mémoire, au patrimoine, au livre,
est supplantée par celle ayant trait au numérique, à la technologie et aux réseaux sociaux – ce qui n’a
rien d’antinomique – il devient urgent de réfléchir à la finalité de ces services. Leurs rôles sont
multiples, à la fois collectifs et individuels, ils participent à l’éducation, à la culture et à la formation
tout au long de la vie. À l’heure d’Internet, ces rôles sont renforcés par l’aspect technologique,
informatique, qui fait partie de ce que tout citoyen doit apprendre et maitriser s’il veut avoir une part
active dans la société du savoir. En la matière, les services dont nous parlons ont un rôle primordial à
jouer, et les professionnels de l’information eux-mêmes – archivistes, bibliothécaires, documentalistes,
personnels des musées – sont au premier rang. À travers de nombreux exemples et témoignages, cet
essai montre comment ces services s’enrichissent les uns les autres, se complètent, utilisent des
méthodes de travail proches bien que différenciées et se transforment, avec l’apparition de nouveaux
profils métier." (Quatrième de couverture)

Multicore simulation of power system transients
Fabian M. Uriarte-1 vol. (XXVI-285 pages)-621.319 URI-The Institution of Engineering and
Technology-2013"Multicore Simulation of Power System Transients introduces a notional power system model
consisting of hundreds of power apparatus and is used to demonstrate how to partition and parallelise
the simulation of power system transients on a multicore desktop PC. The power system throughout
Multicore Simulation of Power System Transients is discretised and formulated using the mesh and
nodal methods. The author shows that the mesh method can result in matrices that are 99% sparse and
that graph theory is not required. Several examples are included in this new book to conceptually show
how power systems are partitioned and parallelised. To provide a reference on how fast a multicore
solver can be, parallel simulation runtimes are compared against MATLAB/Simulink. Topics covered
include: power system modelling in the time domain, discretisation, network formulation, network
partitioning, multithreading and performance analysis." (Editor's Description)

Réseaux sociaux et entreprise, les bonnes pratiques
Christine Balagué et David Fayon-1 vol. (VII-230 p.)-651.7 BAL-Pearson-2011"À l’heure où les internautes utilisent les réseaux sociaux pour rester en contact avec leurs marques
préférées, où les entreprises ouvrent leurs « murs » à leurs fans sur Facebook et où contrôler sa eréputation devient vital, il est essentiel pour toute entreprise de définir sa stratégie sur les réseaux
sociaux. En interne, il est également crucial d’anticiper l’évolution vers une entreprise 2.0 où les
directions et les métiers se décloisonnent pour faciliter la circulation de l’information, tout en se
protégeant par une charte d’utilisation à l’usage des salariés. Les auteurs déclinent les bénéfices et les
risques de l’utilisation des réseaux sociaux. Études de cas réels (Ikea, Oasis, La Redoute, PagesJaunes,
La Vache Qui Rit, Louis Vuitton, BNP Paribas, Gap…) et interviews d’acteurs clés viennent étayer

INFORMATIQUE
A first course in Machine Learning
Simon Rogers, Mark Girolami-1 vol. (XX-285 p.)-006.3 ROG-CRC Press-2012"A First Course in Machine Learning covers the core mathematical and statistical techniques needed to
understand some of the most popular machine learning algorithms. The algorithms presented span the
main problem areas within machine learning: classification, clustering and projection. The text gives
detailed descriptions and derivations for a small number of algorithms rather than cover many
algorithms in less detail. Referenced throughout the text and available on a supporting website
(http://bit.ly/firstcourseml), an extensive collection of MATLAB®/Octave scripts enables students to
recreate plots that appear in the book and investigate changing model specifications and parameter
values. By experimenting with the various algorithms and concepts, students see how an abstract set of
equations can be used to solve real problems. Requiring minimal mathematical prerequisites, the
classroom-tested material in this text offers a concise, accessible introduction to machine learning. It
provides students with the knowledge and confidence to explore the machine learning literature and
research specific methods in more detail." (Book Cover)

Software engineering
Richard F. Schmidt-1 vol. (XXIV-351 p.)-005.1 SCH-Elsevier | Morgan Kaufmann-2013"Software Engineering: Architecture-driven Software Development is the first comprehensive guide to
the underlying skills embodied in the IEEE's Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK)
standard. Standards expert Richard Schmidt explains the traditional software engineering practices
recognized for developing projects for government or corporate systems. Software engineering
education often lacks standardization, with many institutions focusing on implementation rather than
design as it impacts product architecture. Many graduates join the workforce with incomplete skills,
leading to software projects that either fail outright or run woefully over budget and behind schedule.
Additionally, software engineers need to understand system engineering and architecture-the hardware
and peripherals their programs will run on. This issue will only grow in importance as more programs
leverage parallel computing, requiring an understanding of the parallel capabilities of processors and
hardware. This book gives both software developers and system engineers key insights into how their
skillsets support and complement each other. With a focus on these key knowledge areas, Software
Engineering offers a set of best practices that can be applied to any industry or domain involved in
developing software products. * A thorough, integrated compilation on the engineering of software

Computation and storage in the cloud
Dong Yuan and Yun Yang, ... Jinjun Chen, ...-1 vol. (XIV-113 p.)-004.5 YUA-Elsevier-2013"Computation and Storage in the Cloud is the first comprehensive and systematic work investigating
the issue of computation and storage trade-off in the cloud in order to reduce the overall application
cost. Scientific applications are usually computation and data intensive, where complex computation
tasks take a long time for execution and the generated datasets are often terabytes or petabytes in size.
Storing valuable generated application datasets can save their regeneration cost when they are reused,
not to mention the waiting time caused by regeneration. However, the large size of the scientific
datasets is a big challenge for their storage. By proposing innovative concepts, theorems and
algorithms, this book will help bring the cost down dramatically for both cloud users and service
providers to run computation and data intensive scientific applications in the cloud." (Editor's

An introduction to numerical methods
Abdelwahab Kharab, Ronald B. Guenther-1 vol. ([9]-567 p.)-005.3 KHA-CRC Press-2012"Highly recommended by CHOICE, previous editions of this popular textbook offered an accessible
and practical introduction to numerical analysis. An Introduction to Numerical Methods: A
MATLAB(R) Approach, Third Edition continues to present a wide range of useful and important
algorithms for scientific and engineering applications. The authors use MATLAB to illustrate each
numerical method, providing full details of the computer results so that the main steps are easily
visualized and interpreted. New to the Third Edition A chapter on the numerical solution of integral
equations A section on nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) in the last chapter Inclusion of
MATLAB GUIs throughout the text The book begins with simple theoretical and computational
topics, including computer floating point arithmetic, errors, interval arithmetic, and the root of
equations. After presenting direct and iterative methods for solving systems of linear equations, the
authors discuss interpolation, spline functions, concepts of least-squares data fitting, and numerical
optimization. They then focus on numerical differentiation and efficient integration techniques as well
as a variety of numerical techniques for solving linear integral equations, ordinary differential
equations, and boundary-value problems. The book concludes with numerical techniques for
computing the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix and for solving PDEs. CD-ROM Resource
The accompanying CD-ROM contains simple MATLAB functions that help students understand how
the methods work. These functions provide a clear, step-by-step explanation of the mechanism behind
the algorithm of each numerical method and guide students through the calculations necessary to
understand the algorithm. Written in an easy-to-follow, simple style, this text improves students'
ability to master the theoretical and practical elements of the methods. Through this book, they will be

Clustering for data mining
Boris Mirkin-1 vol. (XXIII-350 p.)-006.3 MIR-Chapman & Hall/CRC-2012"Often considered more of an art than a science, books on clustering have been dominated by learning
through example with techniques chosen almost through trial and error. Even the two most popular,
and most related, clustering methods-K-Means for partitioning and Ward's method for hierarchical
14
clustering-have lacked the theoretical underpinning required to establish a firm relationship between
the two methods and relevant interpretation aids. Other approaches, such as spectral clustering or
consensus clustering, are considered absolutely unrelated to each other or to the two above mentioned
methods. Clustering: A Data Recovery Approach, Second Edition presents a unified modeling
approach for the most popular clustering methods: the K-Means and hierarchical techniques,
especially for divisive clustering. It significantly expands coverage of the mathematics of data
recovery, and includes a new chapter covering more recent popular network clustering approachesspectral, modularity and uniform, additive, and consensus-treated within the same data recovery
approach. Another added chapter covers cluster validation and interpretation, including recent
developments for ontology-driven interpretation of clusters. Altogether, the insertions added a hundred
pages to the book, even in spite of the fact that fragments unrelated to the main topics were removed.
Illustrated using a set of small real-world datasets and more than a hundred examples, the book is
oriented towards students, practitioners, and theoreticians of cluster analysis. Covering topics that are
beyond the scope of most texts, the author's explanations of data recovery methods, theory-based
advice, pre- and post-processing issues and his clear, practical instructions for real-world data mining

The Internet of things
edited by Hakima Chaouchi-1 vol. (XVI-265 p.)-004.65 CHA-ISTE | J. Wiley & Sons-2010Progress towards networked communication ubiquity started a number of years ago, with the initial
aim of offering telecommunications users various different services at any time and in any place. This
vision is coming true largely because wireless and mobile communication have undergone a
remarkable evolution, as has the miniaturization of mobile devices, while simultaneously maintaining
high levels of performance and security. The Internet of things (which is the emerging term for this
technological phenomenon) appears to be the ultimate or at least the next link in the chain of
ubiquitous networking. It is defined as the next, imminent, future generation of networks that will
connect not only networked devices (mobile phones, computers, smart devices), but also everyday
objects that have been until now just “un-networked things” or “inert objects”, such as refrigerators,
washing machines, radios, TVs, and so on. This will be made possible by combining evolving
technologies and networking frameworks to deliver an entirely new field of communication. This book
describes the technologies and the networking architectures which make it possible for the Internet of
Things to exit. Amongst these technologies, RFID, sensor and PLC technologies are described, and a
clear vision of how they combine to create the Internet of Things is provided. The book also provides
a good overview of some other significant issues facing the Internet of Things such as privacy and
security concerns, applications, usage and standardization. (Book Cover)

Flow networks
Michael T. Todinov, ...-1 vol. (XVIII-247 p.)-519.8 TOD-Elsevier-2013"Repairable flow networks are a new area of research, which analyzes the repair and flow disruption
caused by failures of components in static flow networks. This book addresses a gap in current
network research by developing the theory, algorithms and applications related to repairable flow
networks and networks with disturbed flows. The theoretical results presented in the book lay the
foundations of a new generation of ultra-fast algorithms for optimizing the flow in networks after
failures or congestion, and the high computational speed creates the powerful possibility of optimal
control of very large and complex networks in real time. Furthermore, the possibility for re-optimizing
the network flows in real time increases significantly the yield from real production networks and
reduces to a minimum the flow disruption caused by failures. The potential application of repairable
flow networks reaches across many large and complex systems, including active power networks,
telecommunication networks, oil and gas production networks, transportation networks, water supply
networks, emergency evacuation networks, and supply networks. The book reveals a fundamental flaw
in classical algorithms for maximizing the throughput flow in networks, published since the creation
of the theory of flow networks in 1956. Despite the years of intensive research, the classical
algorithms for maximizing the throughput flow leave highly undesirable directed loops of flow in the
optimized networks. These flow loops are associated with wastage of energy and resources and
increased levels of congestion in the optimized networks." (Editor's Description)

Mathematical modeling
Sandip Banerjee, ...-1 vol. (XVII-254 p.)-511.8 BAN-CRC Press-2014"Almost every year, a new book on mathematical modeling is published, so, why another? The answer
springs directly from the fact that it is very rare to find a book that covers modeling with all types of
differential equations in one volume. Until now. Mathematical Modeling: Models, Analysis and

Applications covers modeling with all kinds of differential equations, namely ordinary, partial, delay,
and stochastic. The book also contains a chapter on discrete modeling, consisting of differential
equations, making it a complete textbook on this important skill needed for the study of science,
engineering, and social sciences. More than just a textbook, this how-to guide presents tools for
mathematical modeling and analysis. It offers a wide-ranging overview of mathematical ideas and
techniques that provide a number of effective approaches to problem solving. Topics covered include
spatial, delayed, and stochastic modeling. The text provides real-life examples of discrete and
continuous mathematical modeling scenarios. MATLAB® and Mathematica® are incorporated
throughout the text. The examples and exercises in each chapter can be used as problems in a project.
Since mathematical modeling involves a diverse range of skills and tools, the author focuses on
techniques that will be of particular interest to engineers, scientists, and others who use models of

Statistical and machine-learning data mining
Bruce Ratner-1 vol. (XXV-516 p.)-519.5 RAT-CRC Press-2012"The second edition of a bestseller, Statistical and Machine-Learning Data Mining: Techniques for
Better Predictive Modeling and Analysis of Big Data is still the only book, to date, to distinguish
between statistical data mining and machine-learning data mining. The first edition, titled Statistical
Modeling and Analysis for Database Marketing: Effective Techniques for Mining Big Data, contained
17 chapters of innovative and practical statistical data mining techniques. In this second edition,
renamed to reflect the increased coverage of machine-learning data mining techniques, the author has
completely revised, reorganized, and repositioned the original chapters and produced 14 new chapters
of creative and useful machine-learning data mining techniques. In sum, the 31 chapters of simple yet
insightful quantitative techniques make this book unique in the field of data mining literature. The
statistical data mining methods effectively consider big data for identifying structures (variables) with
the appropriate predictive power in order to yield reliable and robust large-scale statistical models and
analyses. In contrast, the author's own GenIQ Model provides machine-learning solutions to common
and virtually unapproachable statistical problems. GenIQ makes this possible - its utilitarian data
mining features start where statistical data mining stops. This book contains essays offering detailed
background, discussion, and illustration of specific methods for solving the most commonly
experienced problems in predictive modeling and analysis of big data. They address each methodology
and assign its application to a specific type of problem. To better ground readers, the book provides an
in-depth discussion of the basic methodologies of predictive modeling and analysis. While this type of
overview has been attempted before, this approach offers a truly nitty-gritty, step-by-step method that
both tyros and experts in the field can enjoy playing with." (Editor's Notes)

PHILOSOPHIE ET PSYCHOLOGIE
Sérendipité
Sylvie Catellin-1 vol. (264 p.)-501 CAT-Éd. du Seuil-2014"Quand Walpole invente le mot « sérendipité » en 1754, il évoque la faculté de découvrir, « par hasard
et sagacité », ce que l’on ne cherchait pas. Aujourd’hui, le terme connaît une vogue croissante au sens
de « découverte par hasard ». Mais si cette focalisation permet d’affirmer la dimension imprévisible et
non programmable de la recherche, l’occultation de la sagacité empêche de saisir ce que « sérendipité
» désigne véritablement, et qui est au cœur de toute découverte. Pour comprendre le sens profond du
terme, il faut remonter aux contes orientaux qui ont inspiré Walpole et Voltaire (pour la « méthode de
Zadig »), et lire les romanciers et les savants qui se sont passionnés pour cette idée. Parmi eux, Balzac
et Poe, Freud et Poincaré, Cannon et Wiener. Tous ont cherché à saisir le fonctionnement de l’esprit
humain quand il est attentif à ce qui le surprend et en propose une interprétation pertinente, par
l’association d’idées, l’imagination, la réflexivité. L’étonnante histoire du mot révèle de profonds
changements dans la conception des processus de création, et dans les rapports entre sciences,
littérature et politique. Au terme de l’enquête, ce mot venu d’un conte ancestral acquiert la puissance
d’un concept, porteur d’enjeux épistémologiques, politiques et humanistes." (Quatrième de

Electromagnetic surface waves
John A. Polo, Jr.,...Tom G. Mackay,... Akhlesh Lakhtakia,...-1vol. (XX-293 p.)-537 POL-Elsevier2013"For decades, the surface-plasmon-polariton wave guided by the interface of simple isotropic materials
dominated the scene. However, in recent times research on electromagnetic surface waves guided by
planar interfaces has expanded into new and exciting areas. In the 1990's research focused on
advancing knowledge of the newly discovered Dyakonov wave. More recently, much of the surface
wave research is motivated by the proliferation of nanotechnology and the growing number of
materials available with novel properties. This book leads the reader from the relatively simple
surface-plasmon-polariton wave with isotropic materials to the latest research on various types of
electromagnetic surface waves guided by the interfaces of complex materials enabled by recent
developments in nanotechnology. This includes: Dyakonov waves guided by interfaces formed with
columnar thin films, Dyakonov-Tamm waves guided by interfaces formed with sculptured thin films,
and multiple modes of surface-plasmon-polariton waves guided by the interface of a metal and a
periodically varying dielectric material." (Editor's Notes)

Fundamentals of magnetism
Mario Reis,...-1 vol. (XV-264 p.)-538 REI-Elsevier-2013" The Fundamentals of Magnetism is a truly unique reference text, that explores the study of
magnetism and magnetic behavior with a depth that no other book can provide. It covers the most
detailed descriptions of the fundamentals of magnetism providing an emphasis on statistical mechanics
which is absolutely critical for understanding magnetic behavior. The books covers the classical areas
of basic magnetism, including Landau Theory and magnetic interactions, but features a more concise
and easy-to-read style. Perfect for upper-level graduate students and industry researchers, The
Fundamentals of Magnetism provides a solid background of fundamentals with clear and in-depth
explanations, in comparison to a brief overview before moving into more advanced topics. Many
applications directly for the purpose of a deep understanding of magnetism and other non-cooperative
phenomena help readers make the transition from theory to application and experimentation effortless.
This book is the true 'study' of the fundamentals of magnetism, enabling readers to move into far more
advance aspects of magnetism more easily. It offers accessible, self-contained content without needing
to seek other sources on topics like Fermion fas; angular moment algebra, etc. It includes over 60
pages devoted to an in-depth discussion of diamagnetism and paramagnetism, topics usually described
in only few pages in other books. It incorporates numerous applications including Molecular Magnets
and other non-cooperative phenomena." (Editor's Notes)

The twelve tribes of Hattie
Ayana Mathis-1 vol. (303 p.)-AN MAT-Vintage books-2013"In 1923, fifteen-year-old Hattie Shepherd, swept up by the tides of the Great Migration, flees Georgia
and heads north. Full of hope, she settles in Philadelphia to build a better life. Instead she marries a
man who will bring her nothing but disappointment, and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins are
lost to an illness that a few pennies could have prevented. Hattie gives birth to nine more children,
whom she raises with grit, mettle, and not an ounce of the tenderness they crave. She vows to prepare
them to meet a world that will not be kind. Their lives, captured here in twelve luminous threads, tell
the story of a mother’s monumental courage—and a nation's tumultuous journey." (Book Cover)

Expo 58
Jonathan Coe-1 vol. (265 p.)-AN COE-Viking Penguin-2013"London, 1958: unassuming civil servant Thomas Foley is plucked from his desk at the Central Office

brand new pub which will form the heart of the British presence at Expo 58 - the biggest World's Fair
of the century, and the first to be held since the Second World War. As soon as he arrives at the site,
Thomas feels that he has escaped a repressed, backward-looking country and fallen headlong into an
era of modernity and optimism. He is equally bewitched by the surreal, gigantic Atomium, which
stands at the heart of this brave new world, and by Anneke, the lovely Flemish hostess who meets him
off his plane. But Thomas's new-found sense of freedom comes at a price: the Cold War is at its
height, the mischievous Belgians have placed the American and Soviet pavilions right next to each
other - and why is he being followed everywhere by two mysterious emissaries of the British Secret
Service? Expo 58 may represent a glittering future, both for Europe and for Thomas himself, but he
will soon be forced to decide where his public and private loyaties really lie."(Book cover)
