Récit traduit du russe par Lucile Nivat Dans la petite ville imaginaire de Khnov, le pilote de chasse Voskoboïev a été victime d'un accident lors d'un exercice aérien. Il s'est catapulté à temps, mais est devenu un inadapté à la vie. Le commandant Troutko, aviateur et poète, tente de lui redonner goût à la vie en l'entraînant à la chasse, à la cueillette de champignons, dans des beuveries de garnison. Élizavéta, l'épouse de Voskoboïev, réconforte la femme de Troutko, Galina, persuadée que son mari la délaisse. Troutko, lui, entretient une correspondance littéraire avec un homme de lettres moscovite, Zoïev. Comme les personnages de la Mouette de Tchekhov, tous se meurent lentement de mélancolie et imaginent leur propre théâtre. Un récit tout en subtilité, où se mêlent les cartes du vrai et du faux, de la cabale et de l'amour, par l'une des voix les plus originales de la prose russe d'aujourd'hui.

This book provides an essential overview of existing state-of-the-art quantitative imaging methodologies and protocols (intensity-based ratiometric and FLIM/ PLIM). A variety of applications are covered, including multi-parametric quantitative imaging in intestinal organoid culture, autofluorescence imaging in cancer and stem cell biology, Ca2+ imaging in neural ex vivo tissue models, as well as multi-parametric imaging of pH and viscosity in cancer biology. The current state-of-the-art of 3D tissue models and their compatibility with live cell imaging is also covered. This is an ideal book for specialists working in tissue engineering and designing novel biomaterial.
This book is a compendium of the finest research in nanoplasmonic sensing done around the world in the last decade. It describes basic theoretical considerations of nanoplasmons in the dielectric environment, gives examples of the multitude of applications of nanoplasmonics in biomedical and chemical sensing, and provides an overview of future trends in optical and non-optical nanoplasmonic sensing. Specifically, readers are guided through both the fundamentals and the latest research in the two major fields nanoplasmonic sensing is applied to - bio- and chemo-sensing - then given the state-of-the-art recipes used in nanoplasmonic sensing research.

Magnetotellurics is finding increasing applications for imaging electrically conductive structures below the Earth`s surface - in both industrial and academic research projects. In Models and Methods of Magnetotellurics the authors provide a systematic approach to understanding the modern theory of ill-posed problems which is essential to making confident meaningful interpretations of magnetotelluric and magnetovariational soundings. The interpretation is conducted in an interactive way, including the hypotheses tests and successive partial inversions with priority on the tippers, magnetic tensors and impedance-phases, which keeps out the destructive static effects of near-surface inhomogeneities. The efficiency of the interpretation is exemplified by new geoelectric models of the Baikal rift zone and the Cascadian subduction zone.

This book contains the papers selected by the Scientific Committee and represented at the XIII International Conference "Solar-Terrestrial Relations and Physics of Earthquake Precursors", which was hold at the Institute of Cosmophysical Research and Radio Wave Propagation, Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Kamchatka. The papers describe the investigation results in the fields of atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere physics. Mechanisms of transformation of solar wind energy into the energy of magnetospheric-ionospheric processes, effects of the processes in the Earth core on the lower and upper atmosphere, seismo-electromagnetic, seismo-electric and seismo-acoustic effects at different frequency ranges in the Earth crust, atmosphere and ionosphere are under consideration. Modern methods for geophysical data collection, processing, transfer and exchange as well as organisation issues of seismic activity monitoring are presented.The Conference "Solar-Terrestrial Relations and Physics of Earthquake Precursors" has 25 years of history. Scientists from Russia, Japan, Hungary, China, India, USA and other countries participate in it. In a traditional way, the Conference includes three sections: atmosphere physics, geophysical fields and their interaction, physics of earthquake precursors.
