The second volume of the collected papers of W D Hamilton, the most important theoretical biologist of the 20th century. Volume 1, The Evolution of Social Behaviour (OUP, still in print), was devoted to the first half of Hamilton's life's work; Volume 2 is devoted to the other half, on sex and sexual selection. Each paper is accompanied by a specially-written autobiographical introduction.

This invaluable second volume of a two-volume set is filled with details about the integrated circuit design for space applications. Various considerations for the selection and application of electronic components for designing spacecraft are discussed. The basic constructions of submicron transistors and schottky diodes during the technological process of production are explored. This book provides details on the energy consumption minimization methods for microelectronic devices. Specific topics include: Features and physical mechanisms of the effect of space radiation on all the main classes of microcircuits, including peculiarities of radiation impact on submicron integrated circuits;Special design, technology, and schematic methods of increasing the resistance to various types of space radiation;Recommendations for choosing research equipment and methods for irradiating various samples;Microcircuit designers on the composition of test elements for the study of the effect of radiation;Microprocessors, circuit boards, logic microcircuits, digital, analog, digital–analog microcircuits manufactured in various technologies (bipolar, CMOS, BiCMOS, SOI);Problems involved with designing high speed microelectronic devices and systems based on SOS-and SOI-structures;System-on-chip and system-in-package and methods for rejection of silicon microcircuits with hidden defects during mass production.

Im Jahr 2014 geschieht das Unbegreifliche: Künstlich hergestellte Viren entweichen aus einem Labor und verbinden sich zu einem neuen Krankheitserreger, der die Toten zum Leben erweckt. Millionen Menschen sterben, als eine Flut von Zombies die ganze Welt überrennt. Zwanzig Jahre nach dem Ausbruch sind die Internetblogger Georgia und Shaun Mason auf der Suche nach den Hintergründen der Epidemie. Als Senator Peter Ryman sie bittet, ihn bei seiner Wahlkampagne zu begleiten, sagen die beiden sofort zu. Doch dann kommt es zu einem Zombie-Angriff, der eindeutig auf Sabotage zurückzuführen ist. Eine gefährliche Jagd beginnt ...

This monograph treats the application of numerous graph-theoretic algorithms to a comprehensive analysis of dynamic enterprise networks. Network dynamics analysis yields valuable information about network performance, efficiency, fault prediction, cost optimization, indicators and warnings. Based on many years of applied research on generic network dynamics, this work covers a number of elegant applications (including many new and experimental results) of traditional graph theory algorithms and techniques to computationally tractable network dynamics analysis to motivate network analysts, practitioners and researchers alike.
