A Tribute to F R N Nabarro Excerpt :

New models for dislocation structure and motion are presented for nanocrystals, nucleation at grain boundaries, shocked crystals, interphase interfaces, quasicrystals, complex structures with non-planar dislocation cores, and colloidal crystals. A theory for the magnetoplastic effect explains many diverse results of this type. The model has many potential applications for forming processes influenced by magnetic fields. Dislocation model for the magnetoplastic effect New mechanism for dislocation nucleation and motion in nanocrystals New models for the dislocation structure of interfaces between crystals with differing crystallographic structure A unified view of dislocations in quasicrystals, with a new model for dislocation motion A general model of dislocation behavior in crystals with non-planar dislocation cores Dislocation properties at high velocities Dislocations in colloidal crystals.

Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs Excerpt :

Antitumor chemotherapy is nowadays a very active field of research, and a huge amount of information on the topic is generated every year. Although many books are available that deal with clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapy, this book addresses the need for an updated treatment from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design. The focus of Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs is on the mechanism of action of antitumor drugs from the molecular point of view and on the relationship between chemical structure and chemical and biochemical reactivity of antitumor agents, aiming at the rationalization of the action of this type of drug, which would allow the design of new active structures. * Explains the biological basis of cancer treatment and the role of chemists in improving anticancer drugs * Provides the historical background and serves as a comprehensive and practical guide on cancer research and anticancer drug development * Includes coverage of different approaches to treating cancer, drug resistance, and a chapter on cancer prevention

Sir Charles Frank OBE FRS An Eightieth Birthday Tribute Excerpt :

Sir Charles Frank is one of the foremost scientists of the last fifty years. He has made important advances in a large number of different fields in physics, notably the properties of dislocations in crystals. This book is a celebration of his work, with contributions from many of his former colleagues and students. The contributors are all eminent in their particular fields, and the great variety in their contributions demonstrates the vast impact Sir Charles has had on modern physics. The papers range over many of the fields in which Sir Charles has worked. These include crystal growth and crystal properties, liquid crystals, particle physics, metallurgy, polymer physics, materials science, geophysics and the mechanics of the Earth's crust. A major part of the book is concerned with the subject with which he is most closely associated, namely the behaviour of dislocations in crystals. The contributions are mainly of two types. There are reviews of Sir Charles' work, concentrating on his original ideas and extensions of his theories that have been made by other researchers. There are also original contributions describing the outcome of new and ongoing research, showing that Sir Charles' pioneering work is still producing important results. Also included are reminiscences of Sir Charles' life and work at Bristol and elsewhere, with many anecdotes demonstrating his unique approach to research and teaching. Because of the wide-ranging nature of Sir Charles Frank's work, this collection of essays will be of great interest to scientists in a wide range of fields.

Physics on Manifolds Excerpt :

This volume contains the proceedings of the Colloquium "Analysis, Manifolds and Physics" organized in honour of Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat by her friends, collaborators and former students, on June 3, 4 and 5, 1992 in Paris. Its title accurately reflects the domains to which Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat has made essential contributions. Since the rise of General Relativity, the geometry of Manifolds has become a non-trivial part of space-time physics. At the same time, Functional Analysis has been of enormous importance in Quantum Mechanics, and Quantum Field Theory. Its role becomes decisive when one considers the global behaviour of solutions of differential systems on manifolds. In this sense, General Relativity is an exceptional theory in which the solutions of a highly non-linear system of partial differential equations define by themselves the very manifold on which they are supposed to exist. This is why a solution of Einstein's equations cannot be physically interpreted before its global behaviour is known, taking into account the entire hypothetical underlying manifold. In her youth, Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat contributed in a spectacular way to this domain stretching between physics and mathematics, when she gave the proof of the existence of solutions to Einstein's equations on differential manifolds of a quite general type. The methods she created have been worked out by the French school of mathematics, principally by Jean Leray. Her first proof of the local existence and uniqueness of solutions of Einstein's equations inspired Jean Leray's theory of general hyperbolic systems.

Specialty Steels and Hard Materials Excerpt :

Specialty Steels and Hard Materials covers the proceedings of the International Conference on Recent Developments in Specialty Steels and Hard Materials (Materials Development '82). The main focus of the materials in the selection is on the microstructural detail, alloy design, processing technology, applications, and economic viability. The first part of the title presents the invited papers in the conference; this part includes topics such as toughness in high speed steels and hard metals; the use of vanadium in low alloy structural steels; and design of strong, ductile, duplex low alloy steels. The second part of the text covers topics about high strength low alloy steels, stainless steels, and rapid solidification processing. The last part of selection deals with tungsten carbide-cobalt hard metals, non-oxide ceramics, and sintered polycrystalline ultra-hard materials. The book will be of great interest to students, researchers, and practitioners of materials engineering and metallurgy.

Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs Excerpt :

Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs, Second Edition, provides an updated treatment from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design, focusing on the mechanism of action of antitumor drugs from the molecular level, and on the relationship between chemical structure and chemical and biochemical reactivity of antitumor agents. Antitumor chemotherapy is a very active field of research, and a huge amount of information on the topic is generated every year. Cytotoxic chemotherapy is gradually being supplemented by a new generation of drugs that recognize specific targets on the surface or inside cancer cells, and resistance to antitumor drugs continues to be investigated. While these therapies are in their infancy, they hold promise of more effective therapies with fewer side effects. Although many books are available that deal with clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapy, this book provides a sorely needed update from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design. Presents information in a clear and concise way using a large number of figures Historical background provides insights on how the process of drug discovery in the anticancer field has evolved Extensive references to primary literature
