Describes how dietary supplements and herbs can be used to alleviate chakra imbalances, with profiles that include each one's function, deficiency level, interaction with other medicines, and chakra relationship.
The author of The Complete Handbook of Quantum Healing serves up “a must read for anyone interested in holistic health, supplements, and healing” (Elise Marie Collins, author of Super Ager). Quantum Supplements bridges together the seemingly disparate scientific and spiritual realms through popular modern-day concepts, dietary supplements and nutrition, and the ancient chakra system to help people explore the ever-growing field of energy medicine. This user-friendly, cutting edge guide explains the “energy healing” and vibrational properties of vitamins, minerals, and herb/botanicals, specifically their effects on activating and balancing the body’s natural energy centers. Following a practical overview to the different types of dietary supplements and how they work, the author elaborates on the physiological and psychological activities of each energy center, or chakra, and the supplemental nutrients that assist their balance. The book includes many easy-to-read tables, and charts are provided as a quick reference guide to determining which supplements are most appropriate for any and everything—from bolstering the immune system, to fighting off frequent colds, to improving circulation, to even battling memory loss. “A critical handbook for anyone who wants to blend a practical approach with chakras to equal ‘real energy’ for life.”—Cyndi Dale, author of The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy “An absolute gem! . . . Dr. Minich seamlessly weaves together scientific fact and ancient/intuitive wisdom in a highly readable fashion. Your understanding of vitamins, minerals, and herbs will be forever changed. I consider this book a must have reference work that takes us into the future of nutrition.”—Marc David, founder and director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, author of The Slow Down Diet
The exponential progress and accessibility of computing has vastly increased data flows and revolutionized the practice of science, engineering, and communication. Computing plays a critical role in advancing research across almost every scientific discipline. Computation for Humanity: Information Technology to Advance Society is a guide for the creation of services, products, and tools that facilitate, support, and enhance progress of humanity toward more sustainable life. This book: Provides a deep understanding of the practical applications of computation to solve human-machine problems Delivers insight into theoretical approaches in an accessible manner Provides a comprehensive overview of computational science and engineering applications in selected disciplines Crosses the boundaries between different domains and shows how they interrelate and complement one another Focuses on grand challenges and issues that matter for the future of humanity Shows different perspectives of computational thinking, understanding, and reasoning Provides a basis for scientific discoveries and enables adopting scientific theories and engineering practices from other disciplines Takes a step back to provide a human-related abstraction level that is not ultimately seen in pure technological elaborations/collections The editors provide a collection of numerous computation-related projects that form a foundation from which to cross-pollinate between different disciplines and further extensive collaboration. They present a clear and profound understanding of computing in today's world, and provide fundamental solutions to some of the most pertinent humanity-related problems.
In the CRC Handbook of Laser Science and Technology: Supplement 2, experts summarize the discovery and properties of new optical materials that have appeared since the publication of Volumes III-V. Included are the latest advances in optical crystals, glasses and plastics, laser host materials, phase conjugation materials, linear electrooptic materials, nonlinear optical materials, magnetooptic materials, elastooptic materials, photorefractive materials, liquid crystals, and thin film coatings. The book also includes expanded coverage of optical waveguide materials and new sections on optical liquids, glass fiber lasers, diamond optics, and gradient index materials. Appendices include Designation of Russian Optical Glasses; Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Mineralogical or Common Names for Optical Materials; and Abbreviations for Methods of Preparing Optical Materials. Extensive tabulations of materials properties with references to the primary literature are provided throughout the supplement. The CRC Handbook of Laser Science and Technology: Supplement 2 represents the latest volume in the most comprehensive, up-to-date listing of the properties of optical materials for lasers and laser systems, making it an essential reference work for all scientists and engineers working in laser research and development.
The material collected in this book originated from lectures given by authors over many years in Warsaw, Trieste, Schladming, Istanbul, Goteborg and Boulder. There is no other comparable book on group representations, neither in mathematical nor in physical literature and it is hoped that this book will prove to be useful in many areas of research. It is highly recommended as a textbook for an advanced course in mathematical physics on Lie algebras, Lie groups and their representations. Request Inspection Copy
The contributions collected here address the question of whether the usage of logic in the sciences requires a deviation from classical mathematical logic. The monograph provides a succinct picture of recent research in alternative logics as they have been developed for applications in the sciences.
Appending the Encyclopedia of Surface and Colloid Science by 42 entries as well as 3800 new citations, 1012 equations, and 485 illustrations and chemical structures, this important supplement summarizes a constellation of new theoretical and experimental findings related to chemical characterization, mechanisms, interfacial behavior, methods and modeling, and applications.
Hilary Whitehall Putnam was one of the leading philosophers of the second half of the 20th century. As student of Rudolph Carnap's and Hans Reichenbach's, he went on to become not only a major figure in North American analytic philosophy, who made significant contributions to the philosophy of mind, language, mathematics, and physics but also to the disciplines of logic, number theory, and computer science. He passed away on March 13, 2016. The present volume is a memorial to his extraordinary intellectual contributions, honoring his contributions as a philosopher, a thinker, and a public intellectual. It features essays by an international team of leading philosophers, covering all aspects of Hilary Putnam's philosophy from his work in ethics and the history of philosophy to his contributions to the philosophy of science, logic, and mathematics. Each essay is an original contribution.
