  1. 1. The Physical Foundation of the Patterning of Physical Action Verbs : A Study of Chinese Verbs

    University dissertation from Linguistics and Phonetics

    Author : Hong Gao; [2001]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Languages and literatures of South and South-East Asia; verbal semantics; trajector; semantic representation; pyscholingistics; polysemy; physical reality; physical foundation; physical action verbs; observability; motion; lexicalization patterning; landmark; intentionality; innateness; physical contact; force-dynamics; combinability; conflation; cognitive semantics; active zone; affectability; Chinese; Kinesiska och språk och litteratur från Syd- och Sydostasien; Linguistics; Lingvistik; Grammar; semantics; semiotics; syntax; Grammatik; semantik; semiotik;

    Abstract : This work is a study of verbal semantics with a focus on the discussion and illustration of the role of body parts and the semantic incorporation into verbal roots of the actions that involve various body parts. Following a general discussion of the basic issues of language construction and human body actions with the image schemas of force-dynamics presented in line with the framework of cognitive semantics, it is argued that the event structures of physical action verbs are not arbitrarily constructed but rather the constructions are built through systematic cognitive processes in relation to both human physical reality and concrete reality in the world.

  2. 2. Physics from Wholeness Dynamical Totality as a Conceptual Foundation for Physical Theories

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Barbara Piechocinska; Claes-Göran Granqvist; Erik Sjöqvist; Laszlo Kish; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; wholeness; elementary embedding; left-distributivity; braids; special braids; entropy; Temperley-Lieb algebra; von Neumann algebra; Potts model; Fysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Solid State Physics; fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Motivated by reductionism's current inability to encompass the quantum theory we explore an indivisible and dynamical wholeness as an underlying foundation for physics. After reviewing the role of wholeness in the quantum theory we set a philosophical background aiming at introducing an ontology, based on a dynamical wholeness. READ MORE

  3. 3. Elements of modeling nanoparticle growth: Surface thermodynamics and dispersive interactions

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Joakim Löfgren; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; density functional theory; growth mechanism; gold nanorods; dispersive interactions; molecular dynamics; van der Waals forces; thermodynamics; CTAB; anisotropic nanoparticles; modeling; surface phase diagram;

    Abstract : Metal nanoparticles have in recent decades been the subject of intense research owing to their wide range of size and shape-dependent properties, which makes them interesting candidates for a variety of applications. Gold nanorods represent a particularly intriguing type of particle due to their tunable plasmonic properties. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Models of Quantum Plasmas and their Nonlinear Implications

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Martin Stefan; Gert Brodin; Mattias Marklund; Tito Mendonca; [2014]

    Abstract : The theory of quantum plasmas dates back to the first attempts of Wigner, Moyal and others to find a suitable formalism to describe many body quantum systems, and from this foundation a rich field has emerged. A plasma is a system consisting of many charged particles, and in a quantum plasma these particles have quantum mechanical properties, such as for example spin. READ MORE

  5. 5. Digital Mammography with a Photon Counting Detector in a Scanned Multislit Geometry

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Magnus Åslund; Mats Danielsson; Ehsan Samei; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mammography; digital; photon counting; scanning; detective quantum effciency; scattered radiation; automatic exposure control; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : Mammography screening aims to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by early detection of the disease, which is one of the leading causes of deaths for middle aged women in the western world. The risk from the x-ray radiation in mammography is relatively low but still a factor in the benefit-risk ratio of screening. READ MORE
