Editors Laurie Brown, Max Dresden, Lillian Hoddeson and Michael Riordan have brought together a distinguished group of elementary particle physicists and historians of science to explore the recent history of particle physics. Based on a conference held at Stanford University, this is the third volume of a series recounting the history of particle physics and offers the most up-to-date account of the rise of the Standard Model, which explains the microstructure of the world in terms of quarks and leptons and their interactions. Major contributors include Steven Weinberg, Murray Gell-Mann, Michael Redhead, Silvan Schweber, Leon Lederman and John Heilbron. The wide-ranging articles explore the detailed scientific experiments, the institutional settings in which they took place, and the ways in which the many details of the puzzle fit together to account for the Standard Model.
For the first time ever, clear, comprehensive information about the major e-learning standards has been brought together in a single resource. No more confusing patchworks of information gleaned from scattered Web sites and periodicals. No more frustrating searches through hundreds of pages of technical specifications to find the twenty pages that apply to you. No more sorting through the alphabet soup of acronyms trying to discern which of them you need. Written by the developers of the first Learning Management System (LMS) to be AICC-certified for Web-based interoperability, E-Learning Standards: A Guide to Purchasing, Developing, and Deploying Standards-Conformant E-Learning thoroughly covers this complex topic.
The pace of development in financial reporting has accelerated sharply during the last few years and shows no sign of abating as the UK prepares to comply with International Accounting Standards. This text seeks to give accounting professionals an understanding of UK accounting standards and demonstrate how standards are used in practice. This text is the perfect companion for those who need to keep abreast of changes to accounting standards or those who need to see how the standards are applied in practice.
The Web is shaping the way we communicate and live. It would therefore be beneficial to have a truly trustworthy Web. However, a systematic model of our relationship with the Web is missing, and this makes such a trustworthy Web an elusive target. The Foundations of a Trustworthy Web presents a thorough description of a model that enables the systematic analysis of the impact that the Web has on society, thus facilitating a discussion about the construction of a trustworthy Web. It is a self-contained introduction to another monograph, The Trustworthy and Trusted Web, by the same author. The model presented in this monograph incorporates the Web into the theory of social systems, and analyses how the existence of the Web alters the way in which society creates its reality. Against this background, it defines the position and role of trust and trustworthiness, as well as the social function of the Web, all in the dual perspective of social sciences and technology. This is an excellent monograph for anyone who is interested in learning about modelling the relationship between society and information technology, specifically the Web. It is comprehensive and informative in analysing the current situation while also delivering a visionary yet pragmatic exploration of the social purpose of the Web.
The standard model brings together two theories of particle physics in order to describe the interactions of subatomic particles, except those due to gravity. This book uses the standard model as a vehicle for introducing quantum field theory.
