Stepcoupling Book Excerpt:

Love may be sweeter the second time around, but once the bliss of a newfound relationship wears off a little, the reality of being part of a stepfamily sets in. If you are one of the millions of remarried Americans facing the challenge of blending two existing families into one cohesive whole, you are part of a stepcouple—and you know all too well how hard it can be to make your marriage work in sometimes tough terrain. Different parenting styles, finances, relationships with ex-spouses, legal matters, and even seemingly simple issues such as the kinds of chores assigned to children can chisel away at your union if you don’t always make your marriage a priority. Stepcoupling offers advice for stepcouples on how to do just that—all the while strengthening their blended family with a healthy marriage. Susan Wisdom and Jennifer Green provide tips and strategies on dealing with the issues remarried couples face, with a wealth of advice from real-life stepcouples, such as: * Learning to tailor your expectations of your spouse or children and remembering that no family is perfect * Knowing where your boundaries are, whether involving a hostile ex-spouse or a stepchild who demands too much attention * Realizing that traits like flexibility, tolerance, forgiveness, and openness are especially essential in a stepfamily situation * Making “us” time for talking, problem-solving, weekends away, and enjoying your marriage to constantly renew and strengthen your bond as a couple Let this invaluable remarriage manual help you make your stepcouple the foundation of a strong, happy, and successful stepfamily.

Modeling Control and Optimization of Water Systems Book Excerpt:

This book provides essential background knowledge on the development of model-based real-world solutions in the field of control and decision making for water systems. It presents system engineering methods for modelling surface water and groundwater resources as well as water transportation systems (rivers, channels and pipelines). The models in turn provide information on both the water quantity (flow rates, water levels) of surface water and groundwater and on water quality. In addition, methods for modelling and predicting water demand are described. Sample applications of the models are presented, such as a water allocation decision support system for semi-arid regions, a multiple-criteria control model for run-of-river hydropower plants, and a supply network simulation for public services.

Spin Chemical Physics of Graphene Book Excerpt:

Graphene’s nickname ‘miracle material’ normally means the material superior properties. However, all these characteristics are only the outward manifestation of the wonderful nature of graphene. The real miracle of graphene is that the specie is a union of two entities: a physical - and a chemical one, each of which is unique in its own way. The book concerns a very close interrelationship between graphene physics and chemistry as expressed via typical spin effects of a chemical physics origin. Based on quantum-chemical computations, the book is nevertheless addressed to the reflection of physical reality and it is aimed at an understanding of what constitutes graphene as an object of material science – sci graphene – on the one hand, and as a working material- high tech graphene - for a variety of attractive applications largely discussed and debated in the press, on the other. The book is written by a user of quantum chemistry, sufficiently experienced in material science, and the chemical physics of graphene is presented as the user view based on results of extended computational experiments in tight connection with their relevance to physical and chemical realities. The experiments have been carried out at the same theoretical platform, which allows considering different sides of the graphene life at the same level in light of its chemical peculiarity.

Advances in Organometallic Chemistry Book Excerpt:

This widely acclaimed serial contains authoritative reviews that address all aspects of organometallic chemistry, a field which has expanded enormously since the publication of Volume 1 in 1964. Almost all branchesof chemistry now interface with organometallic chemistry-the study of compounds containing carbon-metal bonds. Organometallic compounds range from species which are so reactive that they only have a transient existence at ambient temperatures to species which are thermally very stable. Organometallics are used extensively in the synthesis of useful compounds on both large and small scales. Industrial processes involving plastics, polymers, electronic materials, and pharmaceuticals all depend on advancements in organometallic chemistry. In basic research, organometallics have contributed inter alia to: Metal cluster chemistry Surface chemistry The stabilization of highly reactive species by metal coordination Chiral synthesis The formulation of multiple bonds between carbon and the other elements and between the elements themselves
