Historia de la ciencia en la Argentina / José Babini ; estudio preliminar de Marcelo Monserrat. - 1a ed. - Buenos Aires: Solar, 1986. - 273 p. ; 20 cm. No todos los libros poseen historia propia; y cada vez hay menos de esa clase. Pero esta Historia de la ciencia en la Argentina de José Babini (1897-1984) sí la tiene y bastante rica. Vio la luz por primera vez en 1954 y es ésta su tercera edición (no una mera reimpresión, como suele suceder con tantos textos, a los que desaprensivamente se "reedita"). De hecho el único historiador de la ciencia argentina durante bastantes años y hasta hace poco tiempo, Babini reivindicó siempre lo específico de su quehacer. "No me ocupo de filosofía ni de sociología de la ciencia —afirmaba—, mi trabajo es el del historiador, en una disciplina que no debe ser confundida con otras. Aunque, por supuesto, no niego para nada el lugar de la subjetividad; al contrario, creo que lo que hace el historiador es una labor de interpretación". Puntal para investigaciones que siguieron los pasos dados por Babini y apoyo para otras que vendrán, esta obra es el resultado de un trabajo tenaz. Configura un panorama básico para quien quiera conocer el tema en sus rasgos más generales. Pero no es un manual. En rigor, si nos atenemos al título original (La evolución del pensamiento científico en la Argentina), es una toma de posición y una refirmación de la creencia de Babini en el progreso incesante del conocimiento

Climatology : an atmospheric science / John J. Hidore ... [et al.]. - 3rd ed. - New York : Prentice Hall, c2010. - xviii, 385 p., láms. : il. ; 29 cm. Taking the study of atmospheric science beyond the daily weather map, Climatology explores the broader impacts of weather and climate. The authors cover multiple facets of climate, many of which play a significant role in everyday life—and examine many topics, such as past climates, that are seldom adequately covered in other introductions to the subject. The science behind widely publicized events is explained within the systematic coverage of climate and climatology. The relationships between climate and peopleare discussed in detail, and readers are shown how common things ranging from wind-chill to architecture are understood in the wider context of climate. In the Third Edition, data and information have been updated throughout and significant coverage is devoted to climate change.

Each section initiates discussion with governing equations, derives the state equations and then shows examples of their usage. Clinical applications, extensive worked examples, and numerous end of chapter problems clearly show the applications of fluid mechanics to biomedical engineering situations. A section on experimental techniques provides a springboard for future research efforts in the subject area. Uses language and math that are appropriate and conducive for undergraduate learning, containing many worked examples and end of chapter problems. All engineering concepts and equations are developed within a biological context. Covers topics in the traditional biofluids curriculum, as well as addressing other systems in the body that can be described by biofluid mechanics principles, such as air flow through the lungs, joint lubrication, intraocular fluid movement, and renal transport.    Clinical applications are discussed throughout the book, providing practical applications for the concepts discussed.

Synchronization and arbitration in digital systems / David Kinniment. - New Jersey : J. Wiley & Sons, 2007. - xvi, 263 p. : il. ; 24 cm. Today’s networks of processors on and off chip, operating with independent clocks, need effective synchronization of the data passing between them for reliability. When two or more processors request access to a common resource, such as a memory, an arbiter has to decide which request to deal with first. Current developments in integrated circuit processing are leading to an increase in the numbers of independent digital processing elements in a single system. With this come faster communications, more networks on chip, and the demand for more reliable, more complex, and higher performance synchronizers and arbiters. Written by one of the foremost researchers in this area of digital design, this authoritative text provides in-depth theory and practical design solutions for the reliable working of synchronization and arbitration hardware in digital systems. The book provides methods for making real reliability measurements both on and off chip, evaluating some of the common difficulties and detailing circuit solutions at both circuit and system levels. With its logical approach to design methodology, this will prove an invaluable guide for electronic and computer engineers and researchers working on the design of digital electronic hardware. Postgraduates and senior undergraduate students studying digital systems design as part of their electronic engineering course will struggle to find a resource that better details the information given inside this book.
