In any given society, master artisans have devoted their time, energy, and talent to the fine art of jewelry making, creating some of the most spectacular objects known to humankind.

This volume, geared toward jewelry makers, scholars, scientists, students, and fashionistas alike, begins with a lively introduction that offers a cultural history of jewelry and its production.

Bell-Roberts Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of 10+ years 100 projects - architecture in a democratic South Africa and a companion to 10+ years 100 buildings - architecture in a democratic South Africa (2009) which in 2010 received an Award of Excellence from the South African Institute of Architecture. (http://bell-roberts.com?book=128). 10+ years 100 projects entails the documenting of the most meritorious design dissertations from the eight South African universities offering architectural tuition at a post-graduate level, including the submissions of the national winners of the Corobrik Student of the Year Award from 2002 to 2017. None of the work has previously been assembled and the inf ormation is gradually being lost. The content is structured according to the different Schools of Architecture and includes the following universities: TUT, UP, UJ, WITS, UFS, UCT, NMU and UKZN. Each of the 12+ submissions per university is accompanied by an introduction by an academic from each of these tertiary institutions, contextualising the work of that particular chapter. The 4-page submissions, in turn, consist of a synopsis of the socio-design intentions of each the 100 projects, an academic assessment of each of the projects by the editor, and are accompanied by a series of exploratory design and technical drawings. The result is a 480-page omnibus, and an impressive record of the current architectural discourse within our particular socio-economic and political circumstances. This book is intended to serve as a reference for South African students of architecture, and also for professionals. In its experimental and commercially unfettered form, the collection of projects is undoubtedly the most authentic barometer to gauge how radically our design priorities have shifted in recent years and where our current architectural output is situated. It moreover provides an extraordinary range of highly relevant and exceptionally innovative architectural interpretations, which would also find appeal to everyone associated with the building industry.

R18,518 Discovery Miles 185 180 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The Encyclopedia of Systems and Control collects a broad range of short expository articles that describe the current state of the art in the central topics of control and systems engineering as well as in many of the related fields in which control is an enabling technology. The editors have assembled the most comprehensive reference possible, and this has been greatly facilitated by the publisher's commitment continuously to publish updates to the articles as they become available in the future. Although control engineering is now a mature discipline, it remains an area in which there is a great deal of research activity, and as new developments in both theory and applications become available, they will be included in the online version of the encyclopedia. A carefully chosen team of leading authorities in the field has written the well over 250 articles that comprise the work. The topics range from basic principles of feedback in servomechanisms to advanced topics such as the control of Boolean networks and evolutionary game theory. Because the content has been selected to reflect both foundational importance as well as subjects that are of current interest to the research and practitioner communities, a broad readership that includes students, application engineers, and research scientists will find material that is of interest.

It follows a new style, namely to group derivations under the leading word instead of treating them as separate entries. There appear after the main word, in bold print and alphabetically, the suffixes to the main word with translations. Concessions have again been made to anglicisms for the sake of clarity of meaning.

This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics of science.

The 5800-page Encyclopedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopolitical boundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia tells (as the author himself puts it) "not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done."

The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys 100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists, engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing: mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, earth and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry), associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and more).

The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas in the leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scientific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered from the wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times.
