Quantum statistical mechanics in the natural sciences: a volume dedicated to Lars Onsager on the occasion of his seventieth birthday; [proceedings] by Coral Gables Conference on Unity in the Natural Sciences( Book )

15 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leagues and, in many cases, students, of Professor Onsager. Professor Onsager, himself, has contributed a paper on Illife in early times" to the volume. Among the topics discussed are some interesting applications of low temperature experimental techniques to cardiology and astrophysics. We would like to express our particular appreciation to Mrs. Helga Billings and Miss Sara Lesser for their excellent typing of these Proceedings and to Mrs. Jacquelyn Zagursky, as well as to Mrs. Billings and Miss Lesser for their invaluable assistance with the details of the conference and the publication of these Proceedings.

Topics in energy and resources; [part of the proceedings of Orbis Scientiae held by the Center for Theoretical Studies, University of Miami, January 7-11, 1974] by Stephan L Mintz( Book )

12 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the papers presented during the Energy Session of the first Orbis Scientiae of the Center for Theoretical Studies, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida. With this first Orbis, which met January 7- 11, 1974, the Center for Theoretical Studies has inaugurated a new series of annual gather ings devoted to the natural sciences and to problems on the "interface" of science and society. This volume contains, in addition, a contribution by Behram Kursunoglu on the "Energy Black Hole", which was not actually presented during the Orbis. The content of the talks present~d ranged over a wide variety of topics in the fields of future energy needs and resources. Special thanks are due to Mrs. Helga Billings, Miss Sara Lesser, and Mrs. Jacquelyn Zagursky for the typing of the manuscript and for their efficient and cheerful attention to the details of the conference.

Fundamental theories in physics; [proceedings] by Stephan L Mintz( Book )

Progress in lasers and laser fusion by Behram Kurşunoğlu( Book )

10 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a portion of the presentations given at the session on Laser-Fusion and Laser Develop­ ment of Orbis Scientiae II, held at the Center for Theoretical Studies, University of Miami, from January 20 through January 24, 1975. This second in the new series of meetings held at the CTS strove to implement the goals professed in the organization of Orbis Scientiae in 1974, namely to encourage scientists in several disci­ plines to exchange views, not only with colleagues who share similar research interests, but also to acquaint scientists in other fields with the leading ideas and current results in each area represented. Thus, an effort has been made to include papers in each session that discuss fundamental issues in a way which is com­ prehensible to scientists who are specialists in other areas. Also in keeping with the philosophy of Orbis Scientiae, the major topics each year are to be varied, with the invariant being the inclusion of developments in fundamental physics. The discussions of the current state of the art in lasers and fusion represented in this volume are not only of interest because they deal with newly unfolding branches of physics, but also because of their potential technological and societal significance. The paper by v. N. Lugovoi and A. M. Prokhorov was not presented at Orbis Scientiae II, but is included because of its relevance to the topics in this volume
Theories and experiments in high-energy physics by Arnold Perlmutter( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a portion of the presentations given at the session on High Energy Physics and Astro­ physics of Orbis Scientiae II, held at the Center for Theoretical Studies, University of Miami, from January 20 through January 24, 1975. This, second in the new series of meetings held at the CTS, strove to implement the goals professed in the organization of Orbis Scientiae in 1974, namely to encourage scientists in several disciplines to exchange views, not only with colleagues who share similar research interests, but also to acquaint scientists in other fields with the leading ideas and current results in each area repre­ sented. Thus, an effort has been made to include papers in each session that discuss fundamental issues in a way which is comprehensible to scientists who are specialists in other areas. Also in keeping with the philosophy of Orbis Scientiae, the major topics each year are to be varied, with the invariant being the inclusion of developments in fundamental physics. The discussions of the current state of the art in high energy physics represented in this volume include new theories and experiments in the field. v PREFACE Special gratitude is due to the following for their contributions as organizers and moderators of the ses­ sions on high energy physics and astrophysics: Abdus Salam, Jogesh Pati, Karl Strauch, O. W. Greenberg, Sheldon Glashow, George Sudarshan and W. John Cocke. The editors wish to express their appreciation to Mrs. Helga Billings and Mrs

Progress in the neurosciences and related fields : orbis scientiae by Behram Kurşunoğlu( )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the papers presented during the Neurophysiology Session of the first Orbis Scientiae of the Center for Theoretical Studies, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida. With this first Orbis which met from January 7 - 11, 1974, the Center for Theoretical Studies has inaugerated a new set of annual gatherings devoted to the natural sciences and to problems on the "interface" of science and society. The content of the talks presented ranged over a wide variety of topics in neurophysiology, biophysics and biochemistry. A number of the talks concerned various aspects of the brain and its functions. Recent results were also presented on the physics and chemistry of membranes. The papers in the volume are presented in the order in which they were originally delivered. Special thanks are due to Mrs. Helga Billings, Miss Sara Lesser and Mrs. Jacquelyn Zagursky for the typing of the manuscript and for their efficient and cheerful attention to the details of the conference

Intervention with Haitian Entrants in South Florida by Susan M Widmayer( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the effectiveness of the Haitian Perinatal Intervention Project, which provided services to Haitian women and children in south Florida. The project's goals were to help Haitian mothers obtain health services for themselves and their infants and to provide information concerning child care and cognitive stimulation. Participants were identified in the second trimester of their pregnancy and randomly assigned to an intervention or control group. Intervention group mothers were visited in their homes by Haitian paraprofessionals every two weeks during the last trimester and biweekly for two years after infants' deliveries. Control mothers were visited in their homes twice before delivery, but no postpartum home intervention was provided. The study suggests that a biweekly home intervention program provided by indigenous paraprofessionals to Haitian women during pregnancy and the first 12 months of infants' lives may provide: (1) early and continuing access to prenatal obstetric care; (2) favorable birth outcomes in term delivery and appropriate growth in utero; (3) increased developmental scores; and (4) more appropriate and stimulating mother-infant interaction throughout the first year.
