This monograph provides a comprehensive and up-to-date approach on biomineralization. The topical focus of the book lies on the question of how matrix proteins and cells catalyze and regulate mineralization in organisms. Recent advances in the understanding of biomineralization help to better understand biomaterials, in particular their mechanical properties. The target audience primarily comprises practitioners and research experts in the field, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.

Surfing through Hyperspace

Understanding Higher Universes in Six Easy Lessons

Do a little armchair time-travel, rub elbows with a four-dimensional intelligent life form, or stretch your mind to the furthest corner of an uncharted universe. With this astonishing guidebook, Surfing Through Hyperspace, you need not be a mathematician or an astrophysicist to explore the all-but-unfathomable concepts of hyperspace and higher-dimensional geometry. No subject in mathematics has intrigued both children and adults as much as the idea of a fourth dimension. Philosophers and parapsychologists have meditated on this mysterious space that no one can point to but may be all around us. Yet this extra dimension has a very real, practical value to mathematicians and physicists who use it every day in their calculations. In the tradition of Flatland, and with an infectious enthusiasm, Clifford Pickover tackles the problems inherent in our 3-D brains trying to visualize a 4-D world, muses on the religious implications of the existence of higher-dimensional consciousness, and urges all curious readers to venture into "the unexplored territory lying beyond the prison of the obvious." Pickover alternates sections that explain the science of hyperspace with sections that dramatize mind-expanding concepts through a fictional dialogue between two futuristic FBI agents who dabble in the fourth dimension as a matter of national security. This highly accessible and entertaining approach turns an intimidating subject into a scientific game open to all dreamers. Surfing Through Hyperspace concludes with a number of puzzles, computer experiments and formulas for further exploration, inviting readers to extend their minds across this inexhaustibly intriguing scientific terrain.

The quaternary sciences constitute a dynamic, multidisciplinary field of research that has been growing in scientific and societal importance in recent years. This branch of the Earth sciences links ancient prehistory to modern environments. Quaternary terrestrial sediments contain the fossil remains of existing species of flora and fauna, and their immediate predecessors. Quaternary science plays an integral part in such important issues for modern society as groundwater resources and contamination, sea level change, geologic hazards (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis), and soil erosion. With over 360 articles and 2,600 pages, many in full-color, the Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science provides broad ranging, up-to-date articles on all of the major topics in the field. Written by a team of leading experts and under the guidance of an international editorial board, the articles are at a level that allows undergraduate students to understand the material, while providing active researchers with the latest information in the field. Also available online via ScienceDirect (2006) – featuring extensive browsing, searching, and internal cross-referencing between articles in the work, plus dynamic linking to journal articles and abstract databases, making navigation flexible and easy. For more information, pricing options and availability visit www.info.sciencedirect.com. 360 individual articles written by prominent international authorities, encompassing all important aspects of quaternary science Each entry provides comprehensive, in-depth treatment of an overview topic and presented in a functional, clear and uniform layout Reference section provides guidence for further research on the topic Article text supported by full-color photos, drawings, tables, and other visual material Writing level is suited to both the expert and non-expert

Punkt und Linie zu Fläche (Mit Original-Zeichnungen)

Diese illustrierte Ausgabe von "Punkt und Linie zu Fläche" wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Kandinsky besaß eine außergewöhnliche bildnerische Intelligenz und hatte ein ausgeprägtes Empfinden für Farbe und Form. - "Der Punkt ist Urelement, Befruchtung der leeren Fläche. Die Horizontale ist kalte, tragende Basis, schweigend und 'schwarz'. Die Vertikale ist aktiv, warm, 'weiß'. Die freien Geraden sind beweglich, 'blau' und 'gelb'. Die Fläche selbst ist unten schwer, oben leicht, links wie 'Ferne', rechts wie 'Haus'."" – Wassily Kandinsky: Punkt und Linie zu Fläche (1926) Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) war ein russischer Maler, Grafiker und Kunsttheoretiker, der auch in Deutschland und Frankreich lebte und wirkte. Kandinsky war ein Künstler des Expressionismus und einer der Wegbereiter der abstrakten Kunst. Er wird häufig nach eigenen Angaben als Schöpfer des ersten abstrakten Bildes der Welt genannt."

Runen

Geschichte – Gebrauch – Bedeutung

Die germanischen Schriftzeichen der Runen umgab seit jeher ein Schleier des Geheimnisvollen. Diese Aura verstärkte der englische Fantasy-Autor J. R. R. Tolkien, indem die Fabelwesen seiner Mittelerde-Welt Runen als rätselhafte Symbole verwenden. Seine Romane und deren Verfilmungen haben so das Interesse an germanischer Kultur und Geschichte rapide verstärkt. Grund genug, erstmals ein wissenschaftlich fundiertes und verständliches Sachbuch über Runen vorzulegen. Arnulf Krause präsentiert in diesem marixwissen-Band eine unterhaltsame Geschichte der Schrift seit ihrem frühesten Auftreten und eine leicht einsichtige Einführung in ihren Gebrauch. Er zeichnet ihre Verwendung, wie z. B. bei den berühmten Runensteinen der Wikinger, nach und verfolgt ihre Renaissance in der Neuzeit. Kritisch setzt er sich mit dem völkischen und nationalsozialistischem Missbrauch auseinander, der den Schriftzeichen in Deutschland den Ruf rechtsextremer Attribute einbrachte – während sie in Skandinavien immer als authentisches Erbe angesehen wurden.
