Public lectures celebrate International Year of Chemistry
Have you ever wondered how many water molecules you need to dissolve salt? Do you know how to measure fragments of DNA? Could you say how many atoms are needed until a substance actually does what it's meant to? A series of public lectures at The University of Nottingham to celebrate International Year of Chemistry will answer these and many more questions!

The Holloway Series in Poetry: Fanny Howe
Fanny Howe with graduate poet Yosefa Raz Introduced by UC Berkeley English PhD Candidate, Natalia Cecire One of the most widely read experimental poets today and the author of over twenty books of poetry, fiction, and essays, Fanny Howe hardly requires introduction to the Bay Area poetry community. Howe's wiry lyrics construct spaces of unsparing sincerity in which to examine and interrogate the embodied qualities of moral abstractions like mercy, guilt, and awe. Scouting through the complex te

Norman Borlaug: 60 Years of Fighting Hunger
Norman E. Borlaug was awarded the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize for developing methods to help the world's poorest nations feed themselves. Born of Norwegian descent, Dr. Borlaug was raised near Cresco, a small farming community in northeast Iowa. He earned a B.S. in forestry and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in plant pathology from the University of Minnesota. From 1942 to 1944, Dr. Borlaug worked as a microbiologist for E.I. Dupont de Nemours Foundation, in charge of research on industrial and agricultural

Fundamentals of Die Casting Design
This book describes the fundamentals of design of the die casting process and die mold/runner. It is intended for people who have at least some knowledge of the basics of fundamental science, such calculus, physics etc. This book will benefit the die casting engineer (the project and process engineers) as well as managers and anyone else who deals with the die casting operations will find this information useful.
Fundamentals of Compressible Flow Mechanics
This book deals with an introduction to the flow of compressible substances (gases). The main difference between compressible flow and almost incompressible flow is not the fact that compressibility has to be considered. Rather, the difference is in two phenomena that do not exist in incompressible flow. The first phenomenon is the very sharp discontinuity (jump) in the flow in properties. The second phenomenon is the choking of the flow. Choking is when downstream variations don't effect the fl
Math in Society
Math in Society is a free, open textbook. This book is a survey of mathematical topics, most non-algebraic, appropriate for a college-level topics course for liberal arts majors. The text is designed so that most chapters are independent, allowing the instructor to choose a selection of topics to be covered. Emphasis is placed on the applicability of the mathematics. Material for each topic is covered in the main text, with additional depth available through exploration exercises appropriate for
