Pulses of electrons manipulate nanomagnets and store information

Magnets and magnetic phenomena underpin the vast majority of modern data storage, and the measurement scales for research focused on magnetic behaviors continue to shrink with the rest of digital technology. Skyrmions, for example, are a kind of nanomagnet, comprised of a spin-correlated ensemble of electrons acting as a topological magnet on certain microscopic surfaces. The precise properties, like spin orientation, of such nanomagnets can store information. But how might you go about moving o...


Ancient Italian fossils reveal risk of parasitic infections due to climate change

In 2014, a team of researchers led by a paleobiologist from the University of Missouri found that clams from the Holocene Epoch (that began 11,700 years ago) contained clues about how sea level rise due to climate change could foreshadow a rise in parasitic trematodes, or flatworms. The team cautioned that the rise could lead to outbreaks in human infections if left unchecked. Now, an international team from Mizzou and the Universities of Bologna and Florida has found that rising seas could be d...

Global Mobility of Research Scientists - by Academic Press

Item description: This Academic Business, Management Science and Accounting product is by Academic Press - In a world of increasing globalization and dependence on scarce knowledge inputs, it is crucial to have a better understanding of how the localization and mobility of academic researchers contributes to the production of knowledge. What characterizes nationally and internationally mobile researchers? What are the individual and social implications of increased mobility of research scientists? Eight independent but coordinated chapters will address these and other questions, drawing on a set of newly developed databases covering 30 countries (including the US, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, China among others). A comprehensive framework characterizes and analyzes mobility in science, and an original set of applied methodologies addresses the research questions.... Learn More

  Lukasiewicz-Moisil Algebras
The Lukasiewicz-Moisil algebras were created by Moisil as an algebraic counterpart for the many-valued logics of Lukasiewicz. The theory of LM-algebras has developed to a considerable extent both as an algebraic theory of intrinsic interest and in view of its applications to logic and switching theory.This book gives an overview of the theory, comprising both classical results and recent contributions, including those of the authors. N-valued and &THgr;-valued algebras are presented, as well as ...See The Price
