By A. Halanay, V. Rasvan

The 12 months 1992 marks the centennial anniversary of e-book of the prestigious monograph "The common challenge of balance of movement" written by means of A. M. Liapunov. This anniversary evokes to contemplate the way in which thought and purposes have built in this century. the 1st commentary you can actually make is that the so-called "second method", these days often called the "Liapunov functionality method", has bought extra awareness than the "first method"; allow us to additionally point out the research of severe circumstances, which introduced extra consciousness lately in reference to the examine of bifurcations and with nonlinear stabilization. one of many purposes of recognition of the Liapunov functionality process will be the truth that, in lots of events in technology and engineering, and never in basic terms in mechanics, which was once the most resource of notion for the paintings of Liapunov, traditional Liapunov services can be proposed, in detail hooked up with the homes of the strategies. it's one of many reasons of this e-book to recommend this concept. From the mathematical point of view, the century after the 1st seem­ ance of Liapunov's monograph has been characterised either through common­ izations and via refinements of Liapunov's principles. yet we believe that the main awesome growth is the certainty of the large probabilities open for functions via balance concept as developed through Liapunov a century in the past. we now have attempted to teach the various rules during this path by means of begin­ ing with our own adventure within the research of a few models.

Amorphous Silicon / Crystalline Silicon Heterojunction Solar Cells

Amorphous Silicon/Crystalline Silicon sunlight Cells offers with a few general homes of heterojunction sun cells, akin to their heritage, the houses and the demanding situations of the cells, a few vital measurementtools, a few simulation courses and a short survey of the state-of-the-art, aiming to supply an preliminary framework during this box and function a prepared reference for all these drawn to the topic.

Strategic Planning Decisions in the High Tech Industry

The dimensions and complexity of analysis and practices of open innovation mandate a correspondingly refined type of selection making. Strategic making plans judgements brings jointly a couple of instruments that ease the choice technique in know-how businesses, supplying either conceptual frameworks and sensible functions.

Multimedia: Systems, Interaction and Applications

This quantity is a checklist of the 1st Eurographics Workshop on Multimedia, held on the division of Numerical research and Computing technology (NADA), Royal Institute of expertise, Stockholm, April 18-19, 1991. Eurographics is the ecu organization for special effects. it's a non-profit association, certainly one of whose actions is organizing workshops to supply an interface among educational and business learn within the box of special effects.

Phase Transitions in Soft Condensed Matter

This quantity includes the lawsuits of a NATO complex examine Institute held in Geilo, Norway, among four - 14 April 1989. This Institute was once the 10th in a sequence held at Geilo as regards to part transitions. It used to be the 1st to be troubled with the turning out to be region of soppy condensed subject, that's neither usual solids nor traditional drinks, yet someplace in among.
