Romances of War: Die Erinnerung an die Revolutions- und by Lars Peters

By Lars Peters

Napoleon und Nelson, Wellington und Blücher, Trafalgar und Austerlitz - Personen und Orte, die im europäischen Gedächtnis für die napoleonische Epoche stehen. Wie wurden die Revolutions- und Napoleonischen Kriege in Großbritannien und Irland erinnert?
Neben mehr als 500 historischen Romanen bezieht Lars Peters u.a. auch Gedichte und Werke der Geschichtsschreibung in seine examine ein. Die Erinnerungen an diese Kriege trugen dazu bei, Engländer, Schotten und Waliser unter dem Dach einer britischen kingdom zu vereinen. In Irland hingegen blieb die Deutung der Ereignisse umstritten. Dem Land fehlt bis heute ein konfessionsübergreifender Gründungsmythos. Wer sich künftig mit dem Nachleben der napoleonischen Epoche im englischsprachigen Raum beschäftigt, kommt an diesem Buch nicht vorbei.

»Abroad at Göttingen": Britische Studenten an der by Johanna Oehler

By Johanna Oehler

Deutsch-britischer Kulturkontakt durch junge Akademiker - Göttinger Universitätsgeschichte als Personengeschichte und Beitrag zu Reiseforschung.

Was bedeutete die Personalunion zwischen Hannover und Großbritannien für die aufklärerische »Reformuniversität" Göttingen? Einen zentralen Aspekt dieses Themas beleuchtet Johanna Oehler, indem sie die Fragerichtung umkehrt: used to be bedeutete Göttingen für die 237 britischen Studenten, die sich zwischen 1735 und 1806 hier immatrikulierten? Dazu gehörten neben drei königlichen Prinzen anfangs überwiegend Aristokraten, dann zunehmend auch Angehörige der bürgerlichen Elite und junge Akademiker mit speziellen wissenschaftlichen Interessen. Die intensiv recherchierte Kollektivbiographie mit vielen Selbstzeugnissen zeigt, dass ein solcher Aufenthalt keineswegs nur oberflächliches Intermezzo sein musste. Der wissenschaftliche Austausch, vermittelt von adligen und akademischen Netzwerken, und ganz praktisch-alltägliche Erfahrungen - beides hinterließ vielfach extensive Spuren. Ein vergleichender Blick auf das bei britischen Studenten ähnlich beliebte Collegium Carolinum in Braunschweig ergibt, dass die Personalunion keine zwingende Voraussetzung für diese Beziehungen darstellte, im Kurfürstentum Hannover aber zu einem spürbar stärkeren Zusammengehörigkeitsbewusstsein beitrug.

MWW-Type Titanosilicate: Synthesis, Structural Modification by Peng Wu,Hao Xu,Le Xu,Yueming Liu,Mingyuan He

By Peng Wu,Hao Xu,Le Xu,Yueming Liu,Mingyuan He

This booklet offers a finished evaluation of a brand new new release of selective oxidation titanosilicate catalysts with the MWW topology (Ti-MWW) in line with the examine achievements of the previous 12 years. It supplies an outline of the synthesis, constitution amendment and catalytic houses of Ti-MWW. Ti-MWW can conveniently be ready through direct hydrothermal synthesis with crystallization-supporting brokers, utilizing dual-structure-directing brokers and a dry-gel conversion process. It may also be post-synthesized via distinctive reversible constitution transformation and liquid-phase isomorphous substitution. The structural conversion of Ti-MWW into the fabrics usable for processing huge molecules is summarized. making the most of the constitution range of the lamellar precursor of Ti-MWW, it may be absolutely or in part delaminated, and suffer interlayer silylation to procure a singular constitution with better porosity. within the selective oxidation (alkene epoxidation and ketone/aldehyde ammoximation) with hydrogen peroxide or natural peroxide as an oxidant, the original catalytic homes of Ti-MWW are defined compared to conventional titanosilicates similar to TS-1 and Ti-Beta.

Bruno Kreisky -Transformation der SPÖ: Bruno Kreisky wird by Harald Pesendorfer

By Harald Pesendorfer

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 1996 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - Nachkriegszeit, Kalter Krieg, word: sehr intestine, Universität Wien, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Im Sommersemester 1995 befasste ich mich im Rahmen des Seminars „Politische Kultur in Österreich 1945-1983“ mit dem Thema „Die SPÖ in der Ära Klaus“. Den Schwerpunkt bildete dabei der Weg der SPÖ von der competition zur Minderheitsregierung und der Aufstieg Bruno Kreiskys zum Bundeskanzler. Mein Interesse wurde geweckt, als ich auf die großen innerparteilichen Widerstände stieß, mit denen Kreisky zu kämpfen hatte. Vor seiner erfolgreichen Zeit als Parteiobmann und später auch als Regierungschef battle er bei weitem nicht so unumstritten, wie sich dies oft darstellte. Bis zu den verlorenen Wahlen 1966 wäre ein Bruno Kreisky an der Spitze der Partei eine unrealistische Vorstellung gewesen. In der einschlägigen Literatur wird diese Tatsache meist nur am Rande erwähnt.

Hier soll deshalb die Frage behandelt werden, welche Umstände dazu führten, dass Kreisky Parteiobmann wurde. Im ersten Kapitel wird zunächst die Entwicklung der SPÖ in den Jahren 1958 - 1966 dargestellt. Das besondere Augenmerk gilt den Auflösungserscheinungen der Großen Koalition und den Krisen innerhalb der SPÖ, vor allem den Auseinandersetzungen rund um Innenminister Franz Olah. Das Ergebnis der Nationalratswahlen 1966, bei denen die ÖVP die absolute Mehrheit erreichte, struggle die Konsequenz dieser Missstände.

Das zweite Kapitel behandelt das Ende der Großen Koalition, das Scheitern der Regierungsverhandlungen und die Bemühungen der SPÖ, die Niederlage aufzuarbeiten. Dabei kam es zu einer Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Landesorganisationen und der Zentrale in Wien. Die Ablösung Pittermanns und die Suche nach einem Nachfolger begannen sich anzukündigen. Kreisky, der sich nicht ganz freiwillig in die niederösterreichische Landespolitik zurückgezogen hatte, wurde immer häufiger als substitute genannt, sehr zum Missfallen der Parteispitze.

Der Parteitag 1967 und die Wahl Bruno Kreiskys zum Parteiobmann bilden den Schluss der Arbeit. Beschrieben werden die Ereignisse im Vorfeld des Parteitages, die Versuche, Kreiskys Wahl zu verhindern, und die Kür des neuen Parteivorsitzenden.

Die Forschung hat sich mit diesem Zeitraum in den letzten Jahren ausführlicher beschäftigt, doch behandelt die Literatur den Aufstieg Kreiskys nicht schwerpunktmäßig. Wichtige Informationen lieferten das Kreisky-Archiv, Parteitagsprotokolle, Tageszeitungen und Parteipresse sowie der Broda-Nachlaß. Ergänzend wurden mehrere Interviews mit ehemaligen Politikern geführt.

Adaptive and Robust Active Vibration Control: Methodology by Ioan Doré Landau,Tudor-Bogdan Airimițoaie,Abraham

By Ioan Doré Landau,Tudor-Bogdan Airimițoaie,Abraham Castellanos-Silva,Aurelian Constantinescu

This publication methods the layout of lively vibration keep an eye on structures from the point of view of today’s principles of machine regulate. It formulates a few of the layout difficulties encountered within the lively administration of vibration as regulate difficulties and searches for the main applicable instruments to unravel them. The experimental validation of the suggestions proposed on appropriate assessments benches is additionally addressed. to advertise the frequent popularity of those ideas, the presentation removes pointless theoretical advancements (which are available in different places) and makes a speciality of algorithms and their use.

MATLAB®routines, Simulink® diagrams and bench-test information can be found for obtain and inspire effortless assimilation of the experimental and exemplary material.

Three significant difficulties are addressed within the book:

  • active damping to enhance the functionality of passive absorbers;
  • adaptive suggestions attenuation of unmarried and a number of tonal vibrations; and
  • feedforward and suggestions attenuation of large band vibrations.

Adaptive and powerful energetic Vibration Control will curiosity working towards engineers and support them to obtain new techniques and methods with sturdy sensible validation. it may be used because the foundation for a path for graduate scholars in mechanical, mechatronics, commercial electronics, aerospace and naval engineering. Readers operating in energetic noise keep an eye on also will realize innovations with a excessive measure of cross-over capability to be used of their field.
