"Waves and Structures in Nonlinear Nondispersive Media: General Theory and Applications to Nonlinear Acoustics" is devoted completely to nonlinear structures. The general theory is given here in parallel with mathematical models. Many concrete examples illustrate the general analysis of Part I. Part II is devoted to applications to nonlinear acoustics, including specific nonlinear models and exact solutions, physical mechanisms of nonlinearity, sawtooth-shaped wave propagation, self-action phenomena, nonlinear resonances and engineering application (medicine, nondestructive testing, geophysics, etc.). This book is designed for graduate and postgraduate students studying the theory of nonlinear waves of various physical nature. It may also be useful as a handbook for engineers and researchers who encounter the necessity of taking nonlinear wave effects into account of their work. Dr. Gurbatov S.N. is the head of Department, and Vice Rector for Research of Nizhny Novgorod State University. Dr. Rudenko O.V. is the Full member of Russian Academy of Sciences, the head of Department at Moscow University and Professor at BTH (Sweden). Dr. Saichev A.I. is the Professor at the Faculty of Radiophysics of Nizhny Novgorod State University, Professor of ETH Zurich.
This comprehensive, 600-page book helps both experienced counsel and rookies advance their clients' cause more effectively at every stage of the mediation process. A few more examples: * Creating a "plan for movement" in offers and counteroffers * Spotting the chance to "arbitrage" a deal point * Using "zingers" to create positional vulnerabilities for your opponent * Mediation prep and its potential for cementing client relationships * How miscommunication through numbers can cause lost opportunities * Perils of the "fatigue factor" * Breaking impasse - the pros and pitfalls of mediators' techniques Every chapter also includes a variety of "sidebars"-standalone pieces ranging from instructive anecdotes to direct me-to-you advice on specific mediation topics. Some examples: "Johnathan C. Bolton's Bad First Time" ..."Why Jay Cohen Reads Tom's Mediation Brief First" ..."What Maralee Eriksen Learned From Watching 40 Mediated Settlement Conferences" ..."How Parties Can (Mis)communicate Through Numbers" ...and many more.
Since the late-1980s the rise of the Internet and the emergence of the Networked Society have led to a rapid and profound transformation of everyday life. Underpinning this revolution is the computer - a media technology that is capable of not only transforming itself, but almost every other machine and media process that humans have used throughout history.
In Philosophy of Media, Hassan and Sutherland explore the philosophical and technological trajectory of media from Classical Greece until today, casting a new and revealing light upon the global media condition. Key topics include:
Laid out in a clear and engaging format, Philosophy of Media provides an accessible and comprehensive exploration of the origins of the network society. It is essential reading for students of philosophy, media theory, politics, history and communication studies.
