Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Law - European and International Law, Intellectual Properties, grade: Masters' (LLM), , course: LLM International Commercial Law, language: English, abstract: The 21st Century is considered to be the age of nuclear energy and development, and the right to nuclear power is one of the most controversial topics in the World at the moment. Dual use of this technology has caused complexity and confusion amongst the nations. The nuclear law came to existence after the access of some states to the full aspects of this technology. Obviously the latter rules have stopped the rest of the world gaining access to the dual usage of nuclear while the previous nuclear states insist in keeping a right to maintain their superior technology. This paper will argue this issue from the legal, commercial and human rights perspective in more depth and wishes to seek any possible resolutions or recommendations to solve this international dispute amongst the nations. One of the other contributions of this thesis is to assess the inadequacy of some of the NPT articles and the main role of the IAEA to encourage the members to use the technology for peaceful purposes and the prohibition of its diversion into military ones. These flaws include the failure of the suppliers to supply adequate support to some of the non-nuclear states, mostly in developing countries, the lack of a proper timetable to eliminate nuclear weapons and the states selective...

What is the role of things in political participation? This book, now in paperback, develops a fresh perspective on the role of everyday objects, technology and settings in engagement, proposing that they enable a distinctive form of involvement: material participation. The book contributes to wider debates about democracy and materiality, but it also offers empirical analyses of particular objects and devices of material engagement: smart energy meters, environmental show homes and sustainable living gadgets. Material Participation brings social studies of science and technology (STS) into conversation with political theory in order to develop a novel approach to the analysis of specifically material forms of participation. In doing so, it explores the next steps to be taken in studies of participation, technology and the environment, focusing our critical, empirical and creative attention squarely on the materials and devices of the public.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Computer Science - Bioinformatics, Technical University of Munich, language: English, abstract: Nuclear transport of proteins is a basic cellular mechanism preceding a lot of biological processes. The classical transport mechanism for nuclear proteins involves karyopherins importing and exporting the proteins. The karyopherins recognize typically nuclear transport signals in the protein sequence. Three main types of nuclear localization signals (NLS) are focused in the scientific field of nuclear protein transport: monopartite, bipartite and PY-NLS. In studies on nuclear export signals (NES) the specific type of leucine-rich signals is often investigated. The first goal of this thesis was to update NLSdb, a database containing 114 experimental and 194 potential NLS, to the current state of available data. Towards this end, a set of 2452 novel signals with published experimental evidence was extracted from the literature and used as development set. An in silico mutagenesis approach was applied to this set to detect 4301 novel potential NLS in nuclear proteins. We matched these potential NLS in protein sequences of unannotated subcellular localization to identify nuclear proteins. We were able to confirm the predicted localization using our potential NLS in literature. Additional to the collection of data, an extensive analysis on protein sequences containing NLS and NES was performed to provide insights into subcellular locali...

L. Satpathy and R. C. Nayak Infinite Nuclear Matter Model of Atomic Nuclei

6359 руб.
This book deals with some perennial problems in nuclear physics originating from the traditional picture of the nucleus as a classical liquid drop. It has introduced a relatively new model called Infinite Nuclear Matter Model in which the classical liquid has been replaced by quantum mechanical many-fermionic liquid in accord with the true nature of the matter contained in the nucleus. The model is based on a many-body theoretic foundation with the generalized Hugenholtz-Van Hove theorem playing the pivotal role. Thus the two main features of nuclear dynamics namely, the liquid and shell features are taken into account non-perturbatively at a microscopic level. Besides solving the long standing problem of the saturation properties of infinite nuclear matter using the nuclear masses only leading to the resolution of r0 -paradox, it has succeeded in determining the incompressibility in a more or less model independent manner following an Ab initio method with the input of nuclear ground state properties only. The model has given rise to a mass formula for nuclei with unique success in predicting unknown masses and unraveling new nuclear phenomena.

Why did nuclear energy policies in France, Sweden, and the United States, very similar at the time of the oil crisis of 1973 and 1974, diverge so greatly in the following years? In answering this question, James Jasper challenges one of the most popular trends in political analysis: explanations relying exclusively on political and economic structures to account for public policies. Jasper proposes a new cultural and state-centered approach--one heeding not only structural factors but cultural meanings, individual biographies, and elite discretion. Surveying the period from the successful commercialization of light-water-reactor technology in the early 1960s to the present, he explains the events that occurred after 1973: France built even more reactors than it needed, the United States canceled most reactor orders, and Sweden completed planned nuclear plants but decided to phase out nuclear energy by 2010.This work is based on one hundred interviews with managers, policymakers, and activists in the three countries. In addition to providing a unique theoretical perspective, it broadens our understanding of nuclear policy by looking at three countries in depth and over a long historical span.Originally published in 1990.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Energy Sciences, grade: 1,7, The FOM University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg, course: Economics, language: English, abstract: Worldwide nuclear power exerts strong pressure on the economic factor of supply and demand. Nuclear power is a cheap and traditional form of energy. Therefore, there is a large international supply with a strong demand for it. Nevertheless, there are also big risks in the production of nuclear power. Nuclear meltdowns with far-reaching consequences have occurred in the past, e.g. the well-known meltdown at Chernobyl in 1986 and the newest disturbance at the Fukushima nuclear power station in Japan in 2011. These have provoked a major global, public discussion on the future energy supply from nuclear power stations. In Germany, 17 nuclear power stations supply most households and companies with energy, and 7 of the oldest nuclear power stations are temporarily recaptured from the electrical network. An important consideration regarding the economical shutdowns of nuclear power stations in Germany dominates public workaday life. The alternatives are renewable energies. However, they supply only a small amount of energy. If there is a consideration to shut down nuclear power in Germany, it is significant to do so in an economical manner.

Unraveling the role of microRNAs in cancer has gained growing interest in the last few years. In this study, we identified miR-215 as a potential prognostic biomarker and miR-129 as a potential tumor suppressor and a novel therapeutic target in colorectal cancer. We showed that miR-215 levels were significantly decreased in tumors compared with corresponding normal tissues in patients diagnosed with stage II or stage III colorectal cancer. Furthermore, we described a novel mechanism mediated by miR-129 to trigger apoptosis by suppressing a key anti-apoptotic protein, BCL2. The expression of miR-129 was significantly and progressively down regulated in colorectal cancer tissue specimens compared with the adenomas and normal control samples. More importantly, we demonstrated that miR-129 increased the cytotoxic effect of 5- fluorouracil, in vitro and in vivo. We expect that our findings will provide a better insight into the role of microRNAs in cancer and will allow us to carry these molecules into clinical application.

Nuclear physics is the field of physics that studies the constituents and interactions of atomic nuclei. The most commonly known applications of nuclear physics are nuclear power generation, but the research has provided application in many fields, including those in nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear weapons, ion implantation in materials engineering, and radiocarbon in geology and archaeology. The field of particle physics evolved out of nuclear physics and is typically taught in close association with nuclear physics.A heavy nucleus can contain hundreds of nucleons which means that with some approximation it can be treated as a classical system, rather than a quantum-mechanical one. In the resulting liquid-drop model, the nucleus has an energy which arises partly from surface tension and partly from electrical repulsion of the protons. The liquid-drop model is able to reproduce many features of nuclei, including the general trend of binding energy with respect to mass number, as well as the phenomenon of nuclear fission.Superimposed on this classical picture, however, are quantummechanical effects, which can be described using the nuclear shell model, developed in large part by Maria Goeppert-Mayer and J. Hans D. Jensen. Nuclei with certain numbers of neutrons and protons (the magic numbers 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82, 126, ...) are particularly stable, because their shells are filled.Other more complicated models for the nucleus have also been proposed, suc...

Essays in Post-Critical Philosophy of Technology

Technology, in all its forms, has had and continues to have an indisputable impact on society and culture. Philosophy of technology seeks to understand this impact and the meaning of technology for society and culture. Although its origins can be traced back to the Greeks, it wasn’t until the late 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century that it gained ground as a philosophical discipline. Now more than ever it is considered an essential philosophical enterprise. ‘The Budapest Workshop on Philosophy of Technology’ was a lively and successful event that sort to discuss, reflect on and apply this branch of philosophical inquiry to both historical and contemporary examples. Importantly, the contributors’ methodological approaches were influenced by, although not limited to, Michael Polanyi’s term ‘post-critical’. Moving beyond the rigidity of past approaches, the selected essays were driven by two lines of inquiry, what has been the historical role of technology in social and scientific change? And, how can a ‘post-critical’ approach enhance and extend our understanding of philosophy of technology?This edited volume begins by exploring the role of technology in social and scientific developments from a historical perspective, before moving towards a discussion of philosophy of technology from a ‘Post-Critical’ epistemic stance. Free from the constraints of previous methodologies, the third part of this work engages with the term ‘Post-Critical’ in its broadest sense. Th...

Ceramic materials have found numerous applications in science, technology and industry as mentioned earlier. One of the recent applications of titania and zirconia based ceramic precursors is in immobilization and solidification of radioactive isotopes in waste effluents coming out of nuclear establishments and power plants. Due to long term stability and integrity of the ceramic waste forms of high and intermediate level nuclear waste, several countries have now switched over from 'glass technology' to 'ceramic technology' of radwaste management. These and many more applications make ceramics materials an interesting area of research and engineering sciences. The book is particularly aimed at scientific and technical staff in the nuclear and waste management industries in addition to universities and research organizations active in these areas. It will also appeal to a wider audience with interests in environmental issues and will be of benefit to anyone who requires background information on radioactive issues connected with nuclear energy or defense processes, or hazardous waste sources, properties and treatments using crystallographic methods.

Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Law - European and International Law, Intellectual Properties, grade: merit, Queen Mary University of London (Department of Law), course: LLM, language: English, abstract: In this essay I would like to argue that the existing international nuclear liability framework cannot prevent great nuclear disasters. I will start with some considerations about Chernobyl and Fukushima, and then my discussion will continue with a framework of the international legal provisions that address related clauses of liability. I attempted to furnish plausible interpretation of the existing international legal framework before arriving at conclusion about the efficiency of this framework. The nuclear accidents of Chernobyl, USSR in 1986 and Fukushima, Japan in 2011 rekindled serious and thought provoking discussions among the scientific communities, policy planners and beneficiaries of the world to understand whether the existing legal liability ensures the nuclear safeguards to the world for continued use of the nuclear technology at the cost of human and environmental tragedies. A thorough review of these two nuclear tragedies in light of legal provisions is made in the subsequent sections to understand [...]

The book has been developed in conjunction with NERS 462, a course offered every year to seniors and graduate students in the University of Michigan NERS program. The first half of the book covers the principles of risk analysis, the techniques used to develop and update a reliability data base, the reliability of multi-component systems, Markov methods used to analyze the unavailability of systems with repairs, fault trees and event trees used in probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs), and failure modes of systems. All of this material is general enough that it could be used in non-nuclear applications, although there is an emphasis placed on the analysis of nuclear systems. The second half of the book covers the safety analysis of nuclear energy systems, an analysis of major accidents and incidents that occurred in commercial nuclear plants, applications of PRA techniques to the safety analysis of nuclear power plants (focusing on a major PRA study for five nuclear power plants), practical PRA examples, and emerging techniques in the structure of dynamic event trees and fault trees that can provide a more realistic representation of complex sequences of events. The book concludes with a discussion on passive safety features of advanced nuclear energy systems under development and approaches taken for risk-informed regulations for nuclear plants.

Peaceful and non-peaceful applications of nuclear technologies share a common fate: one cannot exist without the other. As the world is about to experience a nuclear renaissance, the nuclear industry has gone through a phase of consolidation. Despite more efficient intra-industry structures and technological advancements it will still not be able to close the increasing gap in energy demand to be expected in the near future. The economic attractiveness and relative absence of emissions still make atomic power an attractive candidate for an energy mix comprising several different "clean" technologies.A renewed interest in nuclear energy will at the same time demand for a robust non-proliferation framework as a safety-guarantee for the market. Export controls have been found to be an effective tool in this regard. The Zangger Committee as the legitimate interpreter of the Non-Proliferation Treaty and the Nuclear Suppliers Group representing the most influential countries in nuclear commerce have established a system of checks and balances that may not halt proliferation altogether, but which has managed to slow it down significantly.The effect of these control structures on the development of the nuclear market cannot be assessed directly. Political and security concerns particularly attributed to nuclear matters make their application a necessity for the existence of the commerce itself. Recent global efforts such as the United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1540...

Cementitious materials are an essential part in any radioactive waste disposal facility. Conditioning processes such as cementation are used to convert waste into a stable solid form that is insoluble and will prevent dispersion to the surrounding environment. It is incredibly important to understand the long-term behavior of these materials. This book summarises approaches and current practices in use of cementitious materials for nuclear waste immobilisation. It gives a unique description of the most important aspects of cements as nuclear waste forms: starting with a description of wastes, analyzing the cementitious systems used for immobilization and describing the technologies used, and ending with analysis of cementitious waste forms and their long term behavior in an envisaged disposal environment. Extensive research has been devoted to study the feasibility of using cement or cement based materials in immobilizing and solidifying different radioactive wastes. However, these research results are scattered. This work provides the reader with both the science and technology of the immobilization process, and the cementitious materials used to immobilize nuclear waste. It summarizes current knowledge in the field, and highlights important areas that need more investigation. The chapters include: Introduction, Portland cement, Alternative cements, Cement characterization and testing, Radioactive waste cementation, Waste cementation technology, Cementitious wasteform durability and performance assessment.

In recent years, increasing attention has been given to the effects of maternal supplementation with n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) during pregnancy on pregnancy outcome and later child development. A relatively new upcoming issue in the context of maternal supplementation with n-3 LCPUFA during pregnancy is the role of n-3 LCPUFA in influencing offspring body composition as a prevention strategy against childhood overweight. A few post hoc analyses of studies that addressed this issue have shown variable and inconclusive results. The INFAT-trial (Impact of Nutritional Fatty acids during pregnancy and lactation for early human Adipose Tissue development) is the first study to directly address this question in a prospective randomized controlled trial (RCT) in humans. Aim of the present study was to examine the effect of a reduction in the n-6/n-3 LCPUFAs ratio in the diet of pregnant/breastfeeding women on adipose tissue growth in their infants´ ≤ 1 year of age by using two different methods of body fat assessment.
