About this Item

The hard copy was 28 cm, with 212 pages and illustrations (some in color). This is the same information distributed as a CD/DVD. This is in the original shrinkwrap it was distributed in. Los Alamos Science, the flagship publication of Los Alamos National Laboratory from 1980 through 2005, was distributed to the international scientific community, academic libraries, and US government policymakers. It presented a coherent picture of some of the most exciting scientific initiatives of the Laboratory and served as a forum for LANL to display the breadth and depth of their national security research. This contains articles on weapons, uncertainty quantification, materials, computer networks, computational biology, turbulence, and numerical methods. Improving predictive capability is an implicit goal in the major missions of Los Alamos National Laboratory: simulating performance of weapons in the stockpile, quantifying uncertainties in those simulations, and developing strategies to mitigate global threats. These range from frontiers in the biosciences - Human Genome Project, AIDS research, and radiation protection - to those in the physical sciences - neutrons as probes of nanomaterials, quantum computing and information, and predictive science. Some themes reflect LANL's focus on fundamental physics - nonlinear studies and the legacy of Stan Ulam, neutrino physics and astrophysics - others convey LANL's role in national security - Russian-American collaborations and challenges in plutonium science. A hallmark of Los Alamos Science was the development of pedagogical articles that tackle difficult concepts. A special feature of the Los Alamos Science series are the volumes celebrating Laboratory anniversaries (40th, 50th, 60th). They provide snapshots of the entire Laboratory that illustrate the evolution of the nuclear weapons mission and other programs. The interviews, roundtable discussions, conferences, and personal essays help to capture the personality and the spirit of innovation that permeate this historic site. Bookseller Inventory # 73149
