Starting in Spring 2010, the International Ludwig Wittgenstein Society will be publishing a new series of Wittgenstein Studies with Walter de Gruyter Publishers; the series is designed as an annual forum for Wittgenstein research. The Wittgenstein Studies publish articles and materials on Ludwig Wittgenstein's life, work and philosophy and on his philosophical and cultural environment. The majority of the articles in the Yearbook are concerned with his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, and there is a section on core themes.
This specialist monograph provides an overview of the recent research on the fundamental and applied properties of nanoparticles extracted from cellulose, the most abundant polymer on the planet and an ubiquitous essential renewable resource. Given the rapid advances in the field and the high level of interest within the scientific and industrial communities, this revised and updated second edition expands the broad overview of recent research and will be required reading for all those working with nanocellulose in the life sciences and bio-based applications, biological, chemical and agricultural engineering, organic chemistry and materials science. It combines a general introduction to cellulose and basic techniques with more advanced chapters on specific properties, applications and current scientific developments of nanocellulose. The book profits from the author's extensive knowledge of cellulose nanocomposite materials.
The volume consists of invited refereed research papers. The contributions cover a wide spectrum in algebraic geometry, from motives theory to numerical algebraic geometry and are mainly focused on higher dimensional varieties and Minimal Model Program and surfaces of general type. A part of the articles grew out a Conference in memory of Paolo Francia (1951-2000) held in Genova in September 2001 with about 70 participants.
