1 How to Make a Noise: Analog Synthesis - Simon Cann
Auteur : Simon Cann
Genre : Musique
How to Make a Noise: Analog Synthesis looks at creating sounds using analog synthesis techniques.

Analog synthesis works by taking a sound source and shaping it with a filter. This is a simple but powerful technique which allows you to create the warm, rich, energetic, and commanding sounds, and with some care you will find tones with detail, complexity, and delicacy.

You will have heard these techniques used on many recordings and will immediately recognize the sounds they produce. After reading the book you will be able to create and control these classic sounds when you apply the techniques to hardware or software synthesizers.

Modulation
2 How to Make a Noise: Frequency Modulation Synthesis - Simon Cann
Auteur : Simon Cann
Genre : Musique
Frequency modulation synthesis is capable of creating a broad, detailed, highly nuanced range of tones which can be controlled with a fine level of detail.

The technique starts with a simple wave—usually a sine wave—which is then modulated by another wave. The interaction between the two (or more) waves creates and shapes the sound over time.

FM synthesis offers an infinite range of possibilities and permutations: it is this range of choices which gives the broad array of tonal nuances that are available with FM.

How to Make a Noise: Frequency Modulation Synthesis shows you how to create a broad, detailed, highly nuanced range of controllable tones. These principles can then be applied to any synthesizer with frequency modulation capabilities.

3 How to Make a Noise: Sample-Based Synthesis - Simon Cann
Auteur : Simon Cann
Genre : Musique
Sample-based synthesizers can be used to create the sound of a full orchestra or individual instruments. They can replicate the sound of a full drum kit, delicate vintage gear, and specialist instruments. Samplers allow one musician to play the bagpipes, a shamisen, a lute, and a whole orchestra, all at the push of a button.

As well as offering the facility to recreate the sound of real instruments with a high degree of sonic fidelity, sample-based synthesis also allows real sounds to be used as the basis for new sounds. These sounds can then be manipulated and mangled to create unimagined sounds with genuine complexity and depth.

How to Make a Noise: Sample-Based Synthesis looks at how to create and control sounds--both realistic recreations of real instrument and creative warped tones--and the tools and techniques that are available to help shape your sounds.

12 The Neuroscience of Emotion - Ralph Adolphs & David J. Anderson
Auteur : Ralph Adolphs & David J. Anderson
Genre : Science de la vie
A new framework for the neuroscientific study of emotions in humans and animals

The Neuroscience of Emotion presents a new framework for the neuroscientific study of emotion across species. Written by Ralph Adolphs and David J. Anderson, two leading authorities on the study of emotion, this accessible and original book recasts the discipline and demonstrates that in order to understand emotion, we need to examine its biological roots in humans and animals. Only through a comparative approach that encompasses work at the molecular, cellular, systems, and cognitive levels will we be able to comprehend what emotions do, how they evolved, how the brain shapes their development, and even how we might engineer them into robots in the future.

Auteur : Committee to Review the U.S. Climate Change Science Program's Synthesis and Assessment Product 5.2 & National Research Council
Genre : Sciences de la Terre
This report reviews the U.S. Climate Change Science Program’s new draft assessment product on characterizing and communicating uncertainty information for climate change decision making, one of 21 climate change assessment products that the program is developing to meet the requirements of the 1990 Global Change Research Act. Although the draft assessment is effective in discussing methods of characterizing uncertainty, it falls short in several ways. It is written for researchers involved in assessment efforts and will likely be of use to them, but does not address other key audiences, particularly policymakers, decision-makers, and members of the media and general public. In addition, it does not assess the full range of "best practice approaches" for characterizing, incorporating, and communicating uncertainty. These weaknesses were due in part to a change in the prospectus after th

21 Asymmetric Synthesis of Bioactive Lactones and the Development of a Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis of α-Aryl Ketones - Robert Doran
Auteur : Robert Doran
Genre : Chimie
This thesis addresses two fundamental areas in contemporary organic chemistry: synthesis of natural products and catalytic asymmetric synthesis. Firstly, a new methodology, developed by our research group, which allows the asymmetric synthesis of lactones, a structural unit ubiquitous in natural products, was utilised in the synthesis of a number of natural product analogues that showed significant biological activity. Secondly, the development of a catalytic asymmetric synthesis of a key structural motif present in a number of natural products and pharmaceuticals was accomplished. During the course of this work we discovered dual stereocontrol, which is significant because it allows the configuration of a new stereocentre to be controlled by a simple change of proton source.

In this challenging climate, the visionary policies and electoral victories of die Grunen in Germany appeared to be nothing short of a political miracle. Hundreds of thoughtful and idealistic people throughout the US, from many walks of life, gravitated toward the idea of a US Green movement as a symbol of hope that the liberatory spirit of recent decades might continue to grow and develop. Thus it was much more than the pragmatic electoral victories of the German Greens that sparked people's imagination on this side of the Atlantic. We were inspired

When I point out that such a statement is based on faith and not on reason, they take it personally and accuse me of being "uncivil."

42 Total Synthesis of Plakortide E and Biomimetic Synthesis of Plakortone B - Xiao-Yu Sun
Auteur : Xiao-Yu Sun
Genre : Chimie
In his thesis, Xiao-yu Sun conducts the first total synthesis of all possible stereoisomers of plakortide E and also confirms the absolute configuration of natural plakortide E. Xiao-yu Sun subsequently converts Plakortide E methyl ester to plakortone B in a biomimetic conversion. Construction and functionalization of cyclic peroxides are notoriously difficult due to the very low O-O bond dissociation energy. Plaktoride E is isolated from the Jamaican marine sponge platorits halichondrioides and contains a five-membered peroxide ring, with oxygen atoms linked to tertiary C4 and C6 centers. The methodology used for synthesizing highly substituted cyclic peroxides is novel and useful, and not only extends the field of Pd-catalyzed reactions, but also provides a convenient synthetic approach for the preparation of the 1,2-dioxolanes series. Plakortide E and plakortone B are bioactive, which

43 Science of Synthesis: Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis Vol. 1 - Johannes G. de Vries
Auteur : Johannes G. de Vries
Genre : Chimie
Catalytic reductions are among the most used synthetic transformations, and the past 15 years have seen great progress in this field. “Science of Synthesis: Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis” includes the latest developments, as well as selective coverage of more well-established methods. Both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic systems are covered, and enantioselective methodology is well represented. There is a focus on the use of metal nanoparticles, both in suspension as well as on solid supports. Furthermore, the advent of research on the conversion of renewable resources into fuels and chemicals has given a great impetus to the field, as deoxygenations are often the first step in the conversion of biomass and this can often be achieved using hydrogenation or hydrogenolysis reactions. Scope, limitations, and mechanism of the reactions are discussed and key experimenta

44 Speech Prosody in Speech Synthesis: Modeling and Generation of Prosody for High Quality and Flexible Speech Synthesis - Keikichi Hirose & Jianhua Tao
Auteur : Keikichi Hirose & Jianhua Tao
Genre : Arts et disciplines linguistiques
The volume addresses issues concerning prosody generation in speech synthesis, including prosody modeling, how we can convey para- and non-linguistic information in speech synthesis, and prosody control in speech synthesis (including prosody conversions).  A high level of quality has already been achieved in speech synthesis by using selection-based methods with segments of human speech.  Although the method enables synthetic speech with various voice qualities and speaking styles, it requires large speech corpora with targeted quality and style.

Accordingly, speech conversion techniques are now of growing interest among researchers.  HMM/GMM-based methods are widely used, but entail several major problems when viewed from the prosody perspective; prosodic features cover a wider time span than segmental features and their frame-by-frame processing is not always

45 The Death of Recycling (Biodevastation) - Synthesis/Regeneration
Auteur : Synthesis/Regeneration
Genre : Science et nature
Recycling has become lazy, relying on yesterday's methods and advancing no new ideas to inspire the public. The practitioners have become used to income derived from the low grade collection of garbage. Their method is to pick away at garbage streams recapturing small amounts of smashed up low-grade materials. Alternatively they profit by exacting garbage dumping surcharges, resembling guilt taxes, from the dumpers. They have formed close alliances with the garbage industry, the two often being indistinguishable. Since no approach to conservation that relies on harvesting garbage can ever threaten the garbage paradigm, they have no way to inspire the public. They do promote themselves mendaciously as being fundamentally opposed to garbage, but that ideology is merely a holdover from a time when recycling was young. The contradiction is disturbing to even casual observers. What would y

46 Whither the Mangroves? from the Gulf war to the Gulf of Mexico - Synthesis/Regeneration
Auteur : Synthesis/Regeneration
Genre : Science et nature
What if, instead of a nasty oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the US public was now confronted with a natural catastrophe in the Grand Canyon or in the Redwood forests of California? Within the popular imagination, certain types of ecosystems elicit more sympathy than others, and very low on the totem pole are mangrove forests. Located in the tropics, mangroves are a mess of thick, tangled, salt-tolerant trees and shrubs which thrive in brackish tidal waters. When I paddled through the Florida Everglades in a canoe some 15 years ago, I found mangroves bizarre looking: the trees have long roots which stick out above the water level. Perhaps because they are swampy and inhospitable, mangroves have failed to capture the public's attention. Yet they fulfill a vital environmental purpose, as they are home to a wide diversity of plant and animal life. What's more, their myriad exposed root

Auteur : Yasuhisa Asano
Genre : Chimie
Volume 1 begins with chapters discussing the historical development of the field, sources of enzymes and appropriate selection of catalysts, and general strategies employed in biocatalysis. This is followed by reviews of the biocatalytic hydrolysis of various substrates. The volume concludes with chapters devoted to biocatalytic isomerizations, and the synthesis of glycosides.
The three Science of Synthesis volumes on "Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis" are designed to present the new possibilities offered by modern biocatalysis to the nonspecialist academic and industrial readership who are involved in practical organic synthesis. The goal of the reference work is to help start a new wave of enthusiasm for biocatalysis in the broader community and to give an overview of the field. As is the case with all of the Science of Synthesis volumes, "Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis" offer

Hard times are looming. And in their desperation to keep the American economy afloat, government and business will be tossing overboard any proposals for real environmental protection. No time for such romantic foolishness when there are investments to be protected. Get those tax refunds back into retailers' registers, quick! Not that we won't be hearing about the environment; indeed, the next growth spurt, if it comes, is likely to be clothed in a green as green as the felt on a blackjack table.

Auteur : Synthesis/Regeneration
Genre : Science et nature
At the stroke of midnight this past January 1, a hundred or so farmers and day laborers from both sides of the border converged on the hump of the Cordoba Las Americas bridge that connects El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, to mark the demise of Mexican agriculture. In accordance with the timetables set by the North American Free Trade Agreement signed by Mexico, the US and Canada 14 years ago, as of January 1 2008, all tariffs on corn, beans, powdered milk, sugar and 200 agricultural products were reduced to zero, setting in motion a doomsday scenario that farmers organizations here say will inevitably lead to crisis in the Mexican "campo" or countryside, mass abandonment of unsustainable plots, increased hunger, and even armed rebellion by the nation's beleaguered small farmers. "If they build steel walls to keep our people from entering the United States, we will make walls of people to ke
