The Science of Why Volume 5

Chock-full of peculiar puzzles, mind-bending mythbusters, and quirky questions, the fifth pop science book in the bestselling Science of Why series is perfect for anyone curious about the weird and wondrous world we live in. Have you ever wondered if octopuses are from outer space? What Mexican jumping beans are? Or if banana peels are really slippery? If questions like these are keeping you up at night, you can rest easy. Bestselling author Jay Ingram is here to answer all the whimsical and whacky wonderings that have baffled people since the dawn of time. From our bodies to our pets (and other beasts) to the natural world around us, Jay tackles science topics big and small, such as: Did dinosaurs sit on their eggs? What is our funny bone?

Flipping the Translation in Popular Science

Flipping the Translation in Popular Science

Flipping the Translation in Popular Science

Summary Flipping the Translation in Popular Science is a collection of Dr. Tsai’s research and teaching experiences over the years as an instructor of courses on popular science and translation, and on translation practice in both directions between Chinese and English. The research material covers the latest science articles published through 2014-2016, providing translation examples with updates of technological development and new information on scientific matters. The book looks into common errors made by translation students, categorizes the reasons for such analysis error, and offers practical solutions and principles for translators to practice translation on scientific subjects. Key Features The author of the book has both a linguistics and a neuroscience background, providing a cross-disciplinary perspective to the discipline of translation. The participants in the study are graduate students of a translation and interpreting program, thus the discussion in the book avoids basic grammar and spelling errors that beginning learners of English would make. Data provided in this study are specific to translation as an academic research subject, not translation as a medium in English teaching. The book provides real-life translation examples from two directions, from English to Chinese, and from Chinese to English. Information about the Author Dr. Pei-Shu Tsai is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Institute of Translation and Interpretation, National Changhua University of Education, Taiwan. She received a MA in linguistics at National Taiwan University and obtained training in cognitive neuroscience for her PhD study at National Yang-Ming University. Her research interests cover linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, and first/second-language acquisition, with a focus on semantics and ambiguity at lexical, sentential, pragmatic, and cultural levels.

The Science of Quantitative Information Flow

The Science of Quantitative Information Flow

The Science of Quantitative Information Flow

This book presents a comprehensive mathematical theory that explains precisely what information flow is, how it can be assessed quantitatively - so bringing precise meaning to the intuition that certain information leaks are small enough to be tolerated - and how systems can be constructed that achieve rigorous, quantitative information-flow guarantees in those terms. It addresses the fundamental challenge that functional and practical requirements frequently conflict with the goal of preserving confidentiality, making perfect security unattainable. -- Topics include: a systematic presentation of how unwanted information flow, i.e., "leaks", can be quantified in operationally significant ways and then bounded, both with respect to estimated benefit for an attacking adversary and by comparisons between alternative implementations; a detailed study of capacity, refinement, and Dalenius leakage, supporting robust leakage assessments; a unification of information-theoretic channels and information-leaking sequential programs within the same framework; and a collection of case studies, showing how the theory can be applied to interesting realistic scenarios. -- The text is unified, self-contained and comprehensive, accessible to students and researchers with some knowledge of discrete probability and undergraduate mathematics, and contains exercises to facilitate its use as a course textbook.
