Encyclopedia of physics by Rita G Lerner( Book )

53 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in English and German and held by 2,765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors of this Encyclopedia, earlier editions of which met with international acclaim, have now provided a fully revised, expanded and updated third edition of this comprehensive reference work. In two volumes, 500 experts -- among them several Nobel laureates and numerous other scientific award winners -- offer a comprehensive and topical account of physics and the physical world. The volumes comprise more than 500 articles, which have either been completely updated or are altogether new, covering the latest terminology and techniques in physics, including atomic trapping and cooling, biophotonics, econophysics, the formation of stars and planets, quantum communication, space science and technology, and traffic flow. - Publisher

Progress report on the development of a laser/maser vocabulary by Rita G Lerner( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of a laser/maser vocabulary follows the pattern established earlier in two similar projects--(1) Development of a Multi-Coordinate Vocabulary--Chemical Physics, and (2) Development of a Multi-Coordinate Index--Plasma Physics. A set of lists of terms judged to be important to a user of information was developed by a specialist in the field. The lists comprise Appendi a of the report and represents the initial draft. The categories for the sets of lists are (1) properties, and (2) properties or state of matter systems, (3) mathematical entities, (4) objects, (5) methods, and (6) devices. (Dh)

FINAL REPORT [microform] : INTERCHANGE OF DATA BASES by Rita G Lerner( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the methods, developed by the American Institute of Physics in cooperation with Engineering Index, Inc., By which both organizations could reduce costs by eliminating duplication of keyboarding and indexing. The three sets of problems that confronted the interchange of their data bases (classification and indexing, formats, data elements, and special characters) are noted, and the means by which they were resolved are explained. Included in the report are three tables that present a comparative study of special characters used by the two data bases, a data element identification log, and data element descriptions. A final section describes the format conversion for tape exchanges between aip and Ei. Appended are the processor flowchart, the AIP-Ei converter fowchart, the Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme (pacs) to Subject Headings for the Engineering (she) mapping table, the pacs optics supplement, and a description of the conversion of AIP-Ei indexing for optics.
