Science and empires : historical studies about scientific development and European expansion by Patrick Petitjean( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

SCIENCE AND EMPIRES: FROM THE INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM TO THE BOOK Patrick PETITJEAN, Catherine JAMI and Anne Marie MOULIN The International Colloquium "Science and Empires - Historical Studies about Scientific De­ velopment and European Expansion" is the product of an International Colloquium, "Sciences and Empires - A Comparative History of Scien­ tific Exchanges: European Expansion and Scientific Development in Asian, African, American and Oceanian Countries". Organized by the REHSEIS group (Research on Epistemology and History of Exact Sciences and Scientific Institutions) of CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research), the colloquium was held from 3 to 6 April 1990 in the UNESCO building in Paris. This colloquium was an idea of Professor Roshdi Rashed who initiated this field of studies in France some years ago, and proposed "Sciences and Empires" as one of the main research programmes for the The project to organize such a colloquium was a bit REHSEIS group. of a gamble. Its subject, reflected in the title "Sciences and Empires", is not a currently-accepted sub-discipline of the history of science; rather, it refers to a set of questions which found autonomy only recently. The terminology was strongly debated by the participants and, as is frequently suggested in this book, awaits fuller clarification

DE L'AGRICULTURE COLONIALE A L'AGRONOMIE TROPICALE : LA PROFESSIONNALISATION DES AGRONOMES TROPICAUX. 1902-1939 by Mina Kleiche( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CAN AGRONOMY BE DEFINED AS A REAL SCIENTIFIC SUBJECT, WHEN IT'S USUALLY RELATED TO PUTTING INTO PRACTICE DIFFERENT SCIENTIFIC KNWOLEDGE TO AGRICULTURE ? IS TROPICAL AGRONOMY A SUBJECT AS A WHOLE OR A MERE FIELD OF AGRONOMY ? HOWEVER, TODAY, IN FRANCE, TROPICAL AGRONOMY HAS TRAINING CENTERS, SUCH AS THE NATIONAL CENTER OF AGRONOMIC STUDIES FOR WARM REGIONS (CNEARC), RESEARCH CENTERS, SUCH AS INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION CENTER OF AGRONOMIC RESEARCH FOR DEVELOPMENT (CIRAD), A PART OF ORSTOM (FRENCH INSTITUTE OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH FOR DEVELOPMNT IN COOPERATION), PUBLICATIONS REVIEWS ; SO TROPICAL AGRONOMIC DOES SEEM TO BE AN APPLIED SCIENCE. ITS GOAL IS TO FIND SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEMS OF AGRICULTURAL UNDERDEVELOPMENT OF THE SOUTH. TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION, I GOT INTERESTED IN THE EMEGENCE OF TROPICAL AGRONOMISTS. INDEED, I ACCURATELY ANALYSED L'ENSAC (NATIONAL COLLEGE OF COLONIAL AGRICULTURE) AS AN INSTITUTE, THE TRAINING AND CAREER OF AGRONOMISTS AS WELL AS THEIR SCIENTIFIC PRODUCTION FROM 1902 TO 1939. THEREFORE I COULD SHOW HOW THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN SOCIAL REQUESTS (FROM COLONS AND THE ADMINISTRATION), PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES AND ENSAC STRUCTURES HAVE PROGRESSIVELY DRIVEN TO WHAT IT'S CALLED TROPICAL AGRONOMY. SO I'VE TRIED TO DESCRIBE THE ORIGINS OF TROPICAL AGRONOMY AS A SCIENCE, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL ACTIVITIES IN LOCAL AND INSTITUTIONAL IMPLANTING. TO FOCUS ON THOSE THREE ELEMENTS HAS ENABLED ME TO AVOID A LINEAR STORY AND TO SPECIFY SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITY

CONTRIBUTIONS A L'ETUDE DE GAZ PHOTOIONISE by Patrick Petitjean( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CETTE THESE EST CONSACREE A L'ETUDE ET LA MODELISATION DE PHASES DILUEES PHOTOIONISEES. LA PREMIERE PARTIE TRAITE DES SYSTEMES D'ABSORPTION DANS LE SPECTRE DES QUASARS. APRES UNE REVUE GENERALE DES CONNAISSANCES DANS LE DOMAINE, L'UTILISATION DE CERTAINES TECHNIQUES CLASSIQUES EST EXPOSEE ET LES HYPOTHESES SOUS-JACENTES SONT DISCUTEES. ON ETUDIE ENSUITE LA MULTIPLICITE DE SYSTEMES MGII OBSERVES A HAUTE RESOLUTION. UN MODELE CINEMATIQUE DE HALO DE GALAXIE CONTENANT UNE DISTRIBUTION DE NUAGES DISCRETS PERMET DE DISCUTER LA REPARTITION DES SOUS-COMPOSANTES. UNE ETUDE DES ABONDANCES EN ELEMENTS LOURDS ET DU CONTENU EN POUSSIERE EST FAITE DANS LES SYSTEMES A RAIE LYMAN ALPHA TRES SATUREE, A PARTIR D'ELEMENTS PEU ABONDANTS COMME LE ZINC ET LE CHROME. LA DEUXIEME PARTIE TRAITE DE LA MODELISATION DE NEBULEUSES EN EMISSION A L'AIDE DE CODES DE PHOTOIONISATION. LE FONCTIONNEMENT DE CES CODES EST DECRIT RAPIDEMENT. L'ETUDE DE LA GALAXIE DE SEYFERT 2 NGC 1068 MET EN EVIDENCE UNE PHASE DE HAUTE EXCITATION QUI EST INTERPRETEE DANS LE CADRE DES MODELES DE GALAXIES DE SEYFERT 1 OBSCURCIES. LE POSSIBLE CHAUFFAGE PAR L'ENERGIE LIBEREE DE L'EXPLOSION DE SUPERNOVAE EST DISCUTE. APRES UNE REVUE D'ENSEMBLE DES PROCESSUS DE RECOMBINAISON, LE PRINCIPAL DU CALCUL DES COEFFICIENTS DE RECOMBINAISON EST DONNE. L'EMISSION DU GAZ ENTOURANT LA NOVA DQ HER 1934 EST MODELISEE. C'EST UN GAZ IONISE A BASSE TEMPERATURE, 500 K, CAR SURABONDANT EN ELEMENTS LOURDS C, N, O. LE MODELE PERMET DE DISCUTER LA GEOMETRIE DE L'ECHAPPEMENT DU FLUX IONISANT ET DE FAIRE DES PREVISIONS SPECIFIQUES EN OPTIQUE ET EN INFRAROUGE
