The Death and Life of Great American Cities

In this classic text, Jane Jacobs set out to produce an attack on current city planning and rebuilding and to introduce new principles by which these should be governed. The result is one of the most stimulating books on cities ever written. Throughout the post-war period, planners temperamentally unsympathetic to cities have been let loose on our urban environment. Inspired by the ideals of the Garden City or Le Corbusier's Radiant City, they have dreamt up ambitious projects based on self-contained neighbourhoods, super-blocks, rigid 'scientific' plans and endless acres of grass. Yet they seldom stop to look at what actually works on the ground. The real vitality of cities, argues Jacobs, lies in their diversity, architectural variety, teeming street life and human scale. It is only when we appreciate such fundamental realities that we can hope to create cities that are safe, interesting and economically viable, as well as places that people want to live in. 'Perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning... Jacobs has a powerful sense of narrative, a lively wit, a talent for surprise and the ability to touch the emotions as well as the mind' New York Times Book Review

The Theory and Technique of Electronic Music

Author: Miller Puckette

Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company

ISBN: 9813106859

Category: Computers

Page: 348

View: 4480

This is the first book to develop both the theory and the practice of synthesizing musical sounds using computers. Each chapter starts with a theoretical description of one technique or problem area and ends with a series of working examples (over 100 in all), covering a wide range of applications. A unifying approach is taken throughout; chapter two, for example, treats both sampling and wavetable synthesis as special cases of one underlying technique. Although the theory is presented quantitatively, the mathematics used goes no further than trigonometry and complex numbers. The examples and supported software — along with a machine-readable version of the text — are available on the web and maintained by a large online community. The Theory and Techniques of Electronic Music is valuable both as a textbook and as professional reading for electronic musicians and computer music researchers.

Symposium K, "Oxide Nanoelectronics," was held Nov. 29-Dec. 3 at the 2010 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. The emerging field of oxide nanoelectronics has grown tremendously in the last decade. Many striking empirical observations in a variety of oxide materials show great promise for ultrahigh-density storage, passive and active nanodevice creation, and functionality based on multiple properties (e.g., magnetic and ferroelectric). The prospect for band-device engineering in oxide heterostructures is comparable to what took place for III-V semiconductors roughly 30 years ago. The symposium that this volume is based on brought together researchers working in this new field to lay a materials-based foundation that can pave the way for major industrial use of these high-performance nanoelectronic systems. The presented topics included: the growth of new oxide materials and heterostructures using pulsed-laser deposition and molecular beam epitaxy; integration of oxides with silicon substrates; characterization of novel electronic and correlated-electron properties in oxide thing films and superlattices; nanoscale control of phase transitions and correlated properties; theory of oxide nanostructures; mixed ion-electronic conduction; magnetism; and oxide 2DEGs.
