Abstract

Joseph Lanner (1801-18439 is one of the most important and outstanding composers of dance music in the so called "Biedermeier" (the period after the "Wiener Kongress", 1st half of the 19th century). He invented the form of the Viennese waltz and founded a tradition, which was successfully carried on by the Strauß-family. Although Lanner wrote more than three hundred compositions until now there is no list of works existing, which describes the existing sources. After more than five years of recherché this list of works is now completed. The first part gives an introduction and describes some of the attributes of Lanners compositions. A short biography is followed by chapters about the development of dance in Vienna at the beginning of the 19th century, a list of other dance music composers of that time, an overview of the forms Lanner used in his dances, but also specific themes such as instrumentation, a list of the most important halls where Lanner performed e.g. The second part is the list of works, ordered by works with Opus-number and works without. For every composition the user will find full information's about the instruments which are required in the composition, the existing editions including autographs, copies and music in print (as well as information's in which Viennese libraries these scores are available), information's about first performances and the person to whom the dance was dedicated, and references of newspapers or books in which the work is mentioned. At the beginning there are the incipients printed (for Ländler and waltz including first and second theme), which allows musicians all over the world to recognize a certain dance by the melody. In the appendices all works are listed once more by alphabetical order, furthermore you will find a list of all persons to whom a dance was dedicated and a short list of works of Lanners son, August. This list of works of the compositions of Lanner fulfils all criteria a modern list of works requires.

Abstract

This book on water soluble polymers (WSP) contains contributions that deal with this extremely popular area of scientific investigation in polymer science and engineering, both in academic and industrial environments. The book contents cover a wide variety of topics, starting from polymerization kinetics (emphasis on multicomponent systems), clarification of factor effects (for example, ionic strength, pH, monomer concentration, and how they influence important chain characteristics and properties), mathematical modelling, parameter estimation, and process design, and ending with applications (i.e., using the well characterized polymer molecules to deliver specific desirable properties for specific applications (hydrogels, cosmetics, drug release, flocculation, nanotechnology, enhanced oil recovery, polymer flooding, absorbents, crosslinking, and many others)). This book contains 17 very high quality contributions from author groups that span the globe and represent currently active researchers in the WSP area.

Abstract

Comfort during resting, half-closed eyes when feeding on highly palatable feed, or vigorous tail wagging when being brushed are some of the positive indicators that can be used to evaluate the quality of the environment in which domestic animals live. This has been a radical shift from the past as, until now, the welfare assessment on farms has meant assessing negative indicators, namely the number of lame animals, presence of lesions, or frequency of agonistic behaviours. However, the latest research confirms that the absence of a problem or of suffering does not necessarily imply that the animals are experiencing a good life and that their level of welfare is high. To guarantee high welfare standards, animals should experience positive conditions that allow them to live a “life worth living”, and positive indicators are needed to identify these conditions. This Special Issue focuses on the development and validation of indicators of positive welfare or on the refinement of the existing ones, as well as on the identification of suitable living conditions for providing positive welfare to farmed and companion animals.

Abstract

This book is made up of contributions dealing with heritage stones from different countries around the world. The stones are described, as well as their use in vernacular and contemporaneous architecture. Heritage stones are those stones that have special significance in human culture. Examples include some very important stones that have been either neglected because they are no longer extracted, or stones that have great significance in commercial terms but knowledge of their national and/or international heritage has not been well documented. In this collection of articles, we have tried to spread awareness of architectural heritage around the world, the natural stones that have been used in its construction, and the need to preserve historical quarries that once provided the source of such stones. Historical quarries are linked to regional culture and tradition. Because of the specific technical and aesthetical characteristics of heritage stones, which have lasted for centuries, these historical quarries should be preserved to be able to use the stones for the proper restoration of monuments and historical buildings to avoid negative actions that can be observed in many places in the restoration of buildings, which are some times part of World Heritage sites. The final intention of this book is to continuosly grow the interest on this fascinating subject of heritage stones.
