The Soviet Nuclear Weapons Program: The History...
9,95 € *

Tens of millions died during World War II as the warring powers raced to create the best fighter planes, tanks, and guns, and eventually that race extended to bombs which carried enough power to destroy civilization itself. While the war raged in Europe and the Pacific, a dream team of Nobel Laureates was working on the Manhattan Project, a program kept so secret that Vice President Harry Truman didn’t know about it until he took the presidency after FDR’s death in April 1945.The Manhattan Project would ultimately yield the "Little Boy" and "Fat Man" bombs that released more than 100 Terajoules of energy at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but weeks earlier, on July 16, 1945, the first detonation of a nuclear device took place in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The first bomb was nicknamed the "gadget", to avoid espionage attempts to discover that it was, indeed, a bomb. In some sense, the device detonated in July was not really a "bomb" anyway; it was not a deployable device, though it was a detonatable one.With this success, word reached President Truman, who was then attending the Potsdam Conference, and while there, he presented the news to Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. Stalin feigned surprise; in an ironic twist of fate, espionage missions had revealed American nuclear research to the Soviets before it had even reached Vice President Truman.The attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, along with the Cold War-era tests and their accompanying mushroom clouds, would demonstrate the true power and terror of nuclear weapons, but in the late 1930s these bombs were only vaguely being thought through, particularly after the successful first experiment to split the atom by a German scientist. Despite the fact the Nazis’ quest for a nuclear weapon began in earnest in 1939, no one really had a handle on how important nuclear weapons would prove to war and geopolitics, so the Germans were hesitant to expend resources on it. Moreover, they were hampe 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory T. Luzitano. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/163278/bk_acx0_163278_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Intercomprehension in Germanic Languages
24,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Potsdam (Institut für Anglistik/ Amerikanistik), course: Transfer in Second Language Acquisition , language: English, abstract: Since communication relies on comprehension, intercomprehension as a learning principle is a way to save time and energy when learning a language. In this respect, (partial) multilingualism or plurilingualism becomes attainable for many more language learners at a time. But in order to reach the goal of multilingualism in the form of partial skills learning, some basic requirements have to be met. (van de Poel in: Kischel 2002: 97) (...) In this paper, I want to prove that L1 speakers of German are able to understand the main information provided by a short text in Dutch - a language, no one of the subjects in the short study I conducted has formally acquired before. The basis of such receptive comprehension of Dutch by L1 speakers of German is laid by the principle of Germanic intercomprehension, whose main characteristics and aspects will be discussed in the first part of the paper. In the second part, the study itself will be presented and analyzed. Is L1 German the `only` important resource language for reading comprehension in Dutch? Do L1 speakers of German with a high proficiency in L2 English have a higher success rate in this respect than L1 Germans with low-intermediate proficiency in L2 English? What are the possibilities of Germanic intercomprehension? With the help of the study presented, these questions shall be answered in the course of this paper.

Stress Field of the Earth's Crust
101,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Stress Field of the Earth’s Crust is based on lecture notes prepared for a course offered to graduate students in the Earth sciences and engineering at University of Potsdam. In my opinion, it will undoubtedly also become a standard reference book on the desk of most scientists working with rocks, such as geophysicists, structural geologists, rock mechanics experts, as well as geotechnical and petroleum en- neers. That is because this book is concerned with what is probably the most pe- liar characteristic of rock – its initial stress condition. Rock is always under a natural state of stress, primarily a result of the gravitational and tectonic forces to which it is subjected. Crustal stresses can vary regionally and locally and can reach in places considerable magnitudes, leading to natural or man-made mechanical failure. P- existing stress distinguishes rock from most other materials and is at the core of the discipline of “Rock Mechanics”, which has been developed over the last century. Knowledge of rock stress is fundamental to understanding faulting mechanisms and earthquake triggering, to designing stable underground caverns and prod- tive oil fields, and to improving mining methods and geothermal energy extraction, among others. Several books have been written on the subject, but none has atte- ted to be as all-encompassing as the one by Zang and Stephansson.

Cost-Benefit Analyses of Climate Change

The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) was founded in 1992 as a 'Blue List' research institute, with the Federal Ministry for Education, Science, Research and Technology and the Ministry for Science, Research and Culture of the federal state of Brandenburg each provid ing half ofthe funding. PIK currently has a staff of 100 (1997), including about 75 scientists and guest scientists, as well as a number of students and temporary assistants. Further expansion is taking place at the institute site in the 'Albert Einstein' Science Park in Potsdam. The interdisciplinary nature of climate impact research, especially the interface between the natural scientific and socioeconomic dimensions of environmental research, is reflected at PIK in the close cooperation with partner institutes at national and international level. The flexible frame work created for the institute enables new problems and issues to be taken up as they arise. As a center of scientific innovation, PIK also coordinates international activities in the fields of climate impact research and Earth System analysis. The institute houses project offices for the IGBP international research programs, for example. Simulations of Global Change are performed on PIK's supercomputer using models and data drawn from various disciplines. The parallel compu ter (an IBM-SP2) boasts 20 gigaflops of computing power, making it one of the most powerful research computers in Germany. The Workshop on Cost-Benefit Analyses of Climate Change was jointly organized by PIK and the Wuppertal Institute for Energy, Climate, and Environment (WI).

Selected extended papers from the Brazilian-German Conference on Frontiers of Science and Technology Symposium (BRAGFOST), Potsdam 5.-10- October 2017 In October 2017 the 8th Brazilian-German Frontiers of Science and Technology Symposium (BRAGFOS)) was held in Potsdam, Germany, gathering German and Brazilian researchers in the fields of Hybrid climate-control strategies, Multifunctional integration, Light-weight structures, Energy Harvesting, and Urban agriculture. This series of symposia, initiated in 2010, is the result of the collaboration between the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) and the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES), and has a special format. Experienced specialists are giving overviews about their research which covers a wide area and making it accessible for specialists from other fields of science and technology.
