This book is meant for the inquiring student seeking an introduction to the subject and for busy biologists in other fields who want to get a ""feel"" for the subject. It can also serve as a basic textbook for the existing biorhythms courses and act as a seed for the inauguration of new courses.
"The story of John Palmer takes the reader behind the scenes with telling anecdotes and instructive insights. His dream came true and now he’s shared it with all of us."--Tom Brokaw, Special Correspondent, NBC News
From one of the most respected newsmen in broadcast journalism comes Newscatcher, an insightful and revealing memoir by John Palmer of NBC News.
Posthumously released just over a year after his passing in August 2013, this remembrance captures the essence of Palmer's ability to tell stories, both personal and historical, in his informal style as if being recounted by an old friend.
Newscatcher includes stories about Palmer's years as a young boy growing up in Tennessee and details the path that led to his career in TV news - a serendipitous journey that lasted for more than 40 years.
It was a profession that provided John Palmer the unique opportunity to pay witness to and report on some of history's most memorable moments, including the early days of the civil rights movement, crime and politics in the streets of Chicago and New York, the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr., turmoil in the Middle East, the Challenger disaster, as well as the aftermath of 9/11.
A Washington insider, Palmer discusses his time as an NBC News White House correspondent covering presidential politics from the Carter administration through George W. Bush’s first years in office.
This incredible overview of John Palmer's life and career is also a must-read for Journalism courses at universities across the nation that will provide budding students who have an interest in broadcasting with a fascinating look at the ever-changing world of television news.
New results have made it possible to obtain a detailed nonperturbative analysis of the multi-spin correlations. In particular, the book focuses on deformation analysis of the scaling functions of the Ising model. This self-contained work also includes discussions on Pfaffians, elliptic uniformization, the Grassmann calculus for spin representations, Weiner--Hopf factorization, determinant bundles, and monodromy preserving deformations.
This work explores the Ising model as a microcosm of the confluence of interesting ideas in mathematics and physics, and will appeal to graduate students, mathematicians, and physicists interested in the mathematics of statistical mechanics and quantum field theory.
