Examines the lifetime of the Polish-born scientist who, along with her husband Pierre, was once offered a 1903 Nobel Prize for locating radium.

This present day, radar in a single shape or one other is probably going to show up all over: on the street, on the waterfront, in an underground motor-road. via some distance the widest use of radar is made by way of the army and scientists. In all of those fields millions upon millions of radar units are at paintings. a few of them are sufficiently small to be equipped into spectacles, others weigh enormous quantities of plenty.

A↑↑Β iff A↑Β and A≠B. 6 Definition Let |YX | = {(a,z) / a∈ X, a is finite, z∈ |Y| }. Moreover, let (a,z) ↑ (a',z') iff i. a ↑↑ a' [mod X] ⇒ z ↑↑ z' [mod Y] and ii. a ↑ a' [mod X] ⇒ z ↑ z' [mod Y]. Then YX is the arrow domain (exponent object). Exercises 1. Prove that conditions (i) and (ii) may be stated equivalently as (a,z) = (a',z') or z↑↑z' or not a↑a'. 2. Prove that every element of YX is a trace of some stable function from X to Y , and conversely that if F: X→Y is stable then tr(F)∈YX.

The elements of |X| are called points, and the relation ↑ is called coherence. The coherent domain associated with (|X|,↑ ) is the collection X of subsets of P(|X|) whose points are pairwise coherent. The elements of X are ordered by set-inclusion. Coherence is extended to X in the obvious way, that is: A ↑ B iff A∪B∈X. Exercise Prove, when X is a coherent domain, that 1. ∅∈X 2. X is closed under directed union 3. 2 Definition Let X, Y be two coherent domains. A function F: X → Y is stable iff i).

Prove that conditions (i) and (ii) may be stated equivalently as (a,z) = (a',z') or z↑↑z' or not a↑a'. 2. Prove that every element of YX is a trace of some stable function from X to Y , and conversely that if F: X→Y is stable then tr(F)∈YX. 3. Let f,g : X → Y be two stable functions. Define f ≤B g (Berry's order) iff ∀x,y∈X x ⊆ y ⇒ f(x) = f(y)∩g(x) Prove that f ≤B g if and only if Tr(f) ⊆ Tr(g). Let moreover ≤p be the pointwise order. Prove that: 25 2.
