Stephen Hawkings Vermächtnis In seinem letzten Buch gibt Stephen Hawking Antworten auf die drängendsten Fragen unserer Zeit und nimmt uns mit auf eine persönliche Reise durch das Universum seiner Weltanschauung. Seine Gedanken zu Ursprung und Zukunft der Menschheit sind zugleich eine Mahnung, unseren Heimatplaneten besser vor den Gefahren unserer Gegenwart zu schützen. Zugänglich und klar finden Sie in diesem Buch Hawkings Antworten auf die drängendsten Fragen unserer Zeit. - Warum gibt es uns Menschen überhaupt? - Und woher kommen wir? - Gibt es im Weltall andere intelligente Lebewesen? - Existiert Gott? - In welchem Zustand befindet sich unser Heimatplanet? - Werden wir auf der Erde überleben? - Retten oder zerstören uns Naturwissenschaften und Technik? - Hilft uns die künstliche Intelligenz, die Erde zu bewahren? - Können wir den Weltraum bevölkern? - Wie werden wir die Schwächsten – Kinder, Kranke, alte Menschen – schützen? - Wie werden wir unsere Kinder erziehen? Brillanter Physiker, revolutionärer Kosmologe, unerschütterlicher Optimist. Für Stephen Hawking bergen die Weiten des Universums nicht nur naturwissenschaftliche Geheimnisse. In seinem persönlichsten Buch beantwortet der Autor die großen Fragen des menschlichen Lebens und spricht die wichtigsten Themen unserer Zeit an. Zugänglich und klar erläutert er die Folgen des menschlichen Fortschritts – vom Klimawandel bis hin zu künstlicher Intelligenz – und diskutiert seine Gefahren. Hier finden Sie Hawkings Antworten auf die Urfragen der Menschheit. Ein großer Appell an politische Machthaber und jeden Einzelnen von uns, unseren bedrohten Heimatplaneten besser zu schützen.

Noch bessere Didaktik, noch mehr Beispiele, noch mehr Aufgaben, noch mehr Spaß - die Neuauflage des "Halliday" erfüllt alle Wünsche an ein zeitgemäßes Lehrbuch der Physik! Das Lehrbuch bietet den gesamten Stoff der einführenden Experimentalphysik-Vorlesungen für Hauptfachstudenten. Mehrere Kapitel wurden im Sinne der besseren Verständlichkeit komplett umgeschrieben, etwa zum Gauß'schen Satz und zum elektrischen Potential. Die Kapitel zur Quantenmechanik sind deutlich umfangreicher und behandeln nun die Schrödinger-Gleichung ausführlicher bis hin zur Reflexion von Materiewellen an Potentialstufen und der Schwarzkörperstrahlung. Doch für die dritte Auflage wurden die Kapitel nicht nur überarbeitet, sondern didaktisch neu strukturiert: die Lerninhalte sind nun in Modulen organisiert, wobei jede Einheit die Lernziele explizit aufführt und die Schlüsselkonzepte zusammenfasst. So können Studentinnen und Studenten zielgerichtet lernen und den Lernerfolg nach der Lektüre selbst überprüfen. Das selbstständige Lernen wird unterstützt durch rund 300 im Text durchgerechnete Beispiele, 250 Verständnis-Checks, mehr als 650 konzeptionelle Fragen sowie mehr als 2500 Aufgaben unterschiedlichen Schwierigkeitsgrads.

From core concepts to current applications, Chemistry: The Practical Science promotes an interrogative approach that develops effective problem solvers and critical thinkers for today's world. Using the text and its pedagogical features as a model, students learn to appreciate the role of questioning in the process of chemistry and begin to think like chemists. In addition, applications woven throughout the narrative, examples, and exercises present core chemical concepts in the context of everyday life. This integrated approach encourages curiosity and demonstrates the relevance of chemistry and its uses in students' lives, their future careers, and their world. Chemistry introduces new topics as an instructor would in the classroom. The authors' approach to problem solving prompts students to begin by asking questions about the topic, think critically to arrive at a solution, evaluate their answers, and uncover related information about the concepts being explored. A dynamic art program, comprehensive end-of-chapter materials, and powerful technology resources complete this innovative textbook program. Real-world applications integrated throughout the chapter-opening case studies, examples, and exercises demonstrate why chemistry matters, as well as its uses in industry, the human body, and the environment. Boxed essays explore scientific applications; connections between nano-level interactions and chemistry at the macro level; and current, controversial topics related to chemistry. In addition, Applications Icons highlight Chemical Encounters and other real-world applications in the narrative. Sample worked-out exercises complement the authors' problem-solving approach and help students develop critical-thinking skills. Each exercise begins with a Question, followed by First Thoughts to capture and maintain student interest. The worked-out Solution, accompanied by Further Insights, extends the concept. Finally, Practice problems and corresponding End-of-Chapter Exercises provide an opportunity for students to apply this approach independently. Designed for optimal student support, Here's What We Know So Far in-chapter summaries reinforce complex or important chemical concepts, and The Bottom Line end-of-chapter reviews highlight the main topics of each chapter and provide key words with definitions and page references for further review. End-of-chapter problems test students' understanding of key concepts and problem-solving skills. Organized by chapter section and in pairs, Skills Review and Chemical Applications and Practices are followed by increasingly challenging Comprehensive Problems and Thinking Beyond the Calculation exercises that involve multiple concepts. The dynamic art program promotes visual learning and resonates with students who expect exciting and appealing graphics. Molecular-level illustrations of key concepts help students connect nanoscale activity to macroscale phenomena, while electrostatic potential maps use vibrant colors to demonstrate the distribution of electrons within a molecule. For further visual learning, the HM ClassPresent CD offers scaleable, searchable animations and lab demonstration videos for use in classroom presentations. The innovative technology program reinforces concepts and allows students to practice problem-solving strategies. Interactive teaching and learning tools—from Chemwork interactive homework problems to video lessons from Thinkwell—present content in a variety of formats to meet different learning styles. Accuracy reviewers worked diligently to ensure the integrity of content, exercises, and supplements for Chemistry: The Practical Science.

Lara Jeans Liebesleben verlief bisher eher unauffällig. Nicht, dass es ihr an Herz oder Fantasie mangelte. Im Gegenteil, Liebeskummer hatte sie schon oft, und unsterblich verliebt war sie auch schon. Einmal sogar in den Freund ihrer großen Schwester. Klar, dass sie das keinem anvertrauen kann. Außer ihrer Hutschachtel. Denn um sich ihrer Gefühle klar zu werden, schreibt Lara Jean jedes Mal einen Abschieds-Liebesbrief, in dem sie so richtig ihr Herz ausschüttet, und legt ihn dort hinein. Diese fünf Briefe sind ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem auf mysteriöse Weise jeder Brief seinen Empfänger erreicht und Lara Jeans rein imaginäres Liebesleben völlig außer Kontrolle gerät ...
