In this collection of passionately argued essays, the internationally acclaimed poet and critic Wai-lim Yip calls Western scholarship to account for its treacherous representation of non-Western literature. Yip moves from Plato to Hans-Georg Gadamer, from Chuang-tzu to Mao Tse-tung, from John Donne to Robert Creeley, as he attempts to create a double consciousness that includes the state of mind of the original author and the expressive potentials of the target language. He aims, first, to expose the types of distortions that have occurred in the process of translation from one language to another and, second, to propose guidelines that will prevent this kind of linguistic violence in the future.

Diffusion Processes in Nuclear Materials

Because of the slow diffusion , penetration distances for the tracer are small ,
even at temperatures which are relatively high for diffusion work , say 1600 to
1800 °C . Also , as shown in Section 2 . 5 , surface effects often interfere with
diffusion .

Diffusion phenomena have played an important role for material scientists in improving products in a variety of fields. An ever widening number of diffusion limited processes have found their way into development, fabrication and irradiation of nuclear materials in controlling grain growth, recrystallisation, sintering, creep, etc. This volume gives a comprehensive overview on the various diffusion processes involved in nuclear materials, whether they are operative in fissionable or fissile nuclear fuels or in the prospective fuels or clads under passive or reactor operating conditions. Unless this information is well understood, it is not possible to develop or fabricate these fuels to withstand the vagaries of temperature, its gradient or changes in stoichiometry. The role of defects and impurities in controlling diffusion processes in nuclear materials is of immense importance and requires its proper evaluation. On irradiation, under the reactor operating conditions, nuclear fuels undergo fission gas release resulting in precipitation into bubbles, or their venting, or radiation induced re-solution, the effects of this irradiation are also examined in depth. The work will be of value to all those interested in getting a clearer insight into the different mechanisms of diffusion, the latest techniques of studying diffusion phenomena, the effect of some of the constraints such as impurities (chemical doping or fission product build up), and temperature and stoichiometry changes.

Seeking to emphasize broad concepts and principles, this textbook explains physiology with the understanding that one of the central goals of physiology is the elucidation of organisms' ability to maintain homeostasis. Berne (emeritus, molecular physiology and biological physics, U. of Virginia Health Sciences Center), Levy (emeritus physiology and biomedical engineering, Case Western Reserve U.), Koeppen (medicine and physiology, U. of Connecticut Health Center), and Stanton (physiology, Dartmouth Medical School), present eight sections covering cellular physiology and the nervous, muscle, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal, and endocrine systems. The text is heavily illustrated with line drawings. Cited in Brandon-Hill. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).

To fully exploit VLSI technology, future CAD tools need to perform a high proportion of the intelligent decision-making necessary for design. It is imperative that these tasks be massively automated so that the intellectual load on the human designer is reduced, allowing a more efficient use of his time and creative abilities. This book investigates the applicability of knowledge-based techniques to the problems of VLSI design. Topics covered include: an overview of knowledge-based techniques; a description of work illustrating the application of these techniques to various VLSI design tasks; and a survey of workstations and software available for constructing knowledge-based systems. Although much of the material in this book has been illustrated using examples from microelectronic CAD, the issues and techniques have been presented in such a way as to make them useful to managers, designers and researchers who wish to learn of the advantages of knowledge-based techniques in practical applications.
