How can you build sturdy Platonic Solids that will hold together through to the last gluing? The templates in this book were designed to answer that question. You can build the solids directly from the templates, or use them as a model to build on colored paper, cardboard, or paper you have colored or painted yourself. The completed solids made from the templates are about 1.8 inches (4.5 cm) high, and you can also follow the instructions to build bigger solids. Each template is included in the book three times, allowing you to get practice or build them along with your friends. Includes 3 x 5 black-and-white templates for building Platonic Solids and instructions.

MICHAEL T. POPE AND ACHIM MULLER Department of Chemistry, Georgetown University, Washington, DC 20057-2222, U.S.A.; Department of Chemistry, University of Bielefeld, D-4BOO Bielefeld 1, F.R.G. Polyoxometalates, from their discovery and early development in the final decades of the 19th century to their current significance in disciplines as diverse as chemistry, mathematics, and medicine, continue to display surprisingly novel structures, unexpected reactivities and applications, and to attract increasing attention worldwide. Most of the contributors to the present volume participated in the workshop held at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research at the University of Bielefeld, July 15-17, 1992. The choice of topics illustrates some of the variety of directions and fields in which polyoxometalates can play an important role. Although many of the leading polyoxometalate research groups are represented here, we regret that time constraints, financial limitations, and in some cases difficulties of communication did not allow us to include significant and imp- tant work from other groups outside Europe and North America. In the following we briefly review the current status of the field of po- oxometalates.

Andrew Glassner's computer graphics career combines renowned technical expertise with an exceptional ability to convey what he knows to professionals and hobbyists in many different fields. Reproducing and expanding almost all of his columns from IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications over the past three years, Andrew Glassner's Notebook is an eclectic, provocative, and broadly relevant book sure to entertain and inform you, regardless of the nature of your interest in graphics or the extent of your knowledge. The 4-color illustrations alone, some not previously published, will empower your skills and interest in the graphics world. Inside, you'll gain lasting insights into the principles of computer graphics-not instruction in program-specific techniques but a deep and broad understanding of how to approach the visual world in terms of geometry, patterns, and relationships. And the story doesn't end there. To help you put this understanding to work, Glassner grounds these principles in dozens of detailed examples drawn from a wide variety of fields, ranging from traditional modeling and rendering, to more exotic subjects like tiling, Moire patterns, and more. Broad in scope yet rich in specifics, Andrew Glassner's Notebook delivers stimulating challenges and even greater rewards. * Collects three years' worth of insights and expands this original work with an all-new introductory chapter, corrections, updates, and clarifications. * Filled with hundreds of full-color images. * Carries traditional computer graphics techniques and applications into new territory, covering topics drawn from science, the arts, and other fields. * Provides detailed information on building beautiful and unusual physical models. * Illustrates the realities of the research process, illustrating some of the dead ends encountered in the search for a good solution to a problem. * Lets you avoid most math and clearly explains what little is required.

Mathematics forms bridges between knowledge, tradition, and contemporary life. The continuous development and growth of its many branches, both classical and modern, permeates and fertilizes all aspects of applied science and technology, and so has a vital impact on our modern society. The book will focus on these aspects and will benefit from the contribution of several world-famous scientists from mathematics and related sciences, such as: Ralph Abraham, Andrew Crumey, Peter Markowich, Claudio Procesi, Clive Ruggles, Ismail Serageldin, Amin Shokrollahi, Tobias Wallisser.

Welcome to the first comprehensive encyclopedia of the human energetic anatomy. Here is a reference that no personal or professional health-care library should be without—an in-depth, illustrated guide to the invisible energies of the spirit, psyche, and consciousness that influence every aspect of our well-being. Whether you are looking for the right complementary medicine to enhance your own healing practice, seeking perennial wisdom about your body’s energetic nature from world traditions, or exploring the quantum edge of intention-based care, The Subtle Body is an indispensible companion for exploring virtually any facet of holistic healing. Created for healing professionals and patients alike, this volume provides a lexicon of terms, illustrations, and detailed entries about our energetic biology and how it relates to our physical being. This invaluable information will help you enhance any form of health care and give you the knowledge you need to develop an integrated approach for your clients’ well-being—or your own.

The Subtle Body is a comprehensive encyclopedia devoted to the critical world of our invisible anatomy, where so much of healing actually occurs. Compiled by intuitive healer and scholar Cyndi Dale, this 500-page full color illustrated reference book covers: What is the "subtle body"? New scientific understanding of our quantum-state existence and the unseen fields that determine our physical condition True integrative care: how combining Eastern energetic modalities with Western scientific rigor yields optimum results The meridians, fields, and chakras: detailed information and diagrams about the role of these energetic structures in our overall health Energy-based therapy principles from the world's healing traditions--including Ayurveda, Qigong, Reiki, Quabalah, and many more For professionals who want to make the leap from being good healers to great ones, one thing is clear: we need to care for every facet of our well-being. With The Subtle Body, practitioners and patients alike now have an unprecedented resource for understanding the physical, energetic, and spiritual elements of human health--for an informed, complete approach to healing.

Rather than relying on separate literature in the fields of structural engineering, architecture, construction and history, this text presents the field of structures holistically in terms of building and architecture. Buildings are studied from all points of view: geometrical, aesthetic, historical, functional, environmental and construction - providing the broadest treatment of structures available.* Descriptive, analytical, and graphical treatment of topics are presented with nearly equal emphasis. * Numerous case studies throughout exemplify structural concepts and develop a feeling for structure and form, instead of supporting specific architectural styles or structural acrobatics. * Teaching in the context of building structure and form (i.e., low-rise, high-rise, long-span, etc.) allows students to understand structures on real, not abstract, mathematical terms. * Structural systems (i.e., frames, arches, space frames, soft shells, etc.) and how they aid in making space and enhancing the formal presentation of a structure are discussed in detail. * Chapter 3 deals with approximate design methods for steel, wood, reinforced concrete, and prestressed concrete according to the
