Periodic Tales: A Cultural History of the Elements, from Arsenic to Zinc

just like the alphabet, the calendar, or the zodiac, the periodic desk of the chemical components has an everlasting position in our mind's eye. yet other than the handful of universal ones (iron, carbon, copper, gold), the weather themselves stay wrapped in secret. we don't recognize what so much of them seem like, how they exist in nature, how they acquired their names, or of what use they're to us. Unlocking their marvelous secrets and techniques and colourful pasts, Periodic stories is a passionate trip via mines and artists’ studios, to factories and cathedrals, into the woods and to the ocean to find the genuine tales of those interesting yet mysterious development blocks of the universe.

The Lady Anatomist: The Life and Work of Anna Morandi Manzolini

Anna Morandi Manzolini (1714-74), a girl artist and scientist, surmounted meager origins and constrained formal schooling to turn into the most acclaimed anatomical sculptors of the Enlightenment. the woman Anatomist tells the tale of her arresting lifestyles and occasions, in gentle of the intertwined histories of technological know-how, gender, and paintings that advanced her upward thrust to popularity within the eighteenth century.

In such cases, a MultiConfiguration Self-Consistent Field or MCSCF wavefunction can be used[7]. This takes the same form as eq. (2), but includes only the most important configurations. The difference is that the CI coefficients c[( and the molecular orbital coefficients are optimised simultaneously. This MCSCF procedure accounts for some of the more important contributions to the electron correlation, and it can be followed by a CI calculation in which further CSFs are included but the molecular orbital coefficients are not optimised further.
