Physics of nonlinear optics. (1999).

Guang S., He, Song H., Liu. Singapore : World Scientific













Nonlinear optics has been a rapidly growing field in recent decades. It is based on the study of effects and phenomena related to the interaction of intense coherent light radiation with matter.

Physics of Nonlinear Optics describes various major nonlinear optical effects, including physical principles, experimental techniques, up-to-date research achievements, and current or potential applications. This book features clear conceptual descriptions, concise formulations, and emphasizes both theoretical and experimental aspects of nonlinear optics. The readability of this book is particularly enhanced by a series of color photographs showing the spectacular appearances of various nonlinear optical effects.

Both authors of this book are outstanding research scientists renowned in their professional areas. Their major research achievements in nonlinear optics include the pioneering studies of two-wave-coupled refractive-index change, Raman-enhanced self-focusing, optical-frequency Pockels effect, stimulated Kerr scattering, optical phase-conjugation via backward stimulated emission, and two-photon-absorption based optical limiting, stabilization and reshaping.


 

Intro to Python for computer science and data science : learning to program with AI, big data and the cloud. (2020). Paul Deitel, Harvey Deitel. New York, NY : Pearson Education, Inc.












The Deitels’ Introduction to Python for Computer Science and Data Science: Learning to Program with AI, Big Data and the Cloud offers a unique approach to teaching introductory Python programming, appropriate for both computer-science and data-science audiences. Providing the most current coverage of topics and applications, the book is paired with extensive traditional supplements as well as Jupyter Notebooks supplements. Real-world datasets and artificial-intelligence technologies allow students to work on projects making a difference in business, industry, government and academia. Hundreds of examples, exercises, projects (EEPs), and implementation case studies give students an engaging, challenging and entertaining introduction to Python programming and hands-on data science. The book's modular architecture enables instructors to conveniently adapt the text to a wide range of computer-science and data-science courses offered to audiences drawn from many majors. Computer-science instructors can integrate as much or as little data-science and artificial-intelligence topics as they'd like, and data-science instructors can integrate as much or as little Python as they'd like. The book aligns with the latest ACM/IEEE CS-and-related computing curriculum initiatives and with the Data Science Undergraduate Curriculum Proposal sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

Global clay : themes in world ceramic traditions. (2020). Burrison, John A. Bloomington, Indiana : Indiana University Press












For over 25,000 years, humans across the globe have shaped, decorated, and fired clay. Despite great differences in location and time, universal themes appear in the world's ceramic traditions, including religious influences, human and animal representations, and mortuary pottery. In 'Global Clay: Themes in World Ceramic Traditions', noted pottery scholar John A. Burrison explores the recurring artistic themes that tie humanity together, explaining how and why those themes appear again and again in worldwide ceramic traditions. The book is richly illustrated with over 200 full-color, cross-cultural illustrations of ceramics from prehistory to the present. Providing an introduction to different styles of folk pottery, extensive suggestions for further reading, and reflections on the future of traditional pottery around the world, 'Global Clay' is sure to become a classic for all who love art and pottery and all who are intrigued by the human commonalities revealed through art.


 

C'mon C'mon : drawings from the set. (2022). Yann Kebbi.

New York, NY : A24 Films LCC
















Drawings from the set Yann was invited by the writer/director and visual artist, Mike Mills (Beginners, 20th Century Women)to join the production of his new film ‘C’mon C’mon’ and draw some of the locations and actors during the shoot. Towards the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, Yann joined filming in Los Angeles and New Orleans where he created over 300 drawings. Most of the artworks were produced on set, as scenes were being filmed and Yann also had the opportunity to spend time alone with the actors (including Joaquin Phoenix and Gaby Hoffman) to create portraits of the main characters.

Tamara de Lempicka 1898-1980. (1992) Gilles Neret. Germany : Benedikt Taschen











As the Goddess of the Automobile Age, Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980) stood at the center of the sophisticated Paris art world of the Twenties and Thirties. Her love for beautiful women, elegant automobiles and the modern metropolis provided not only motifs for her pictures, but also influenced her artistic style. Simultaneously with her career as artist, Tamara de Lempicka pioneered a new image of life on the screen, evident in the new, self-confident woman and the changing aspects of femininity and masculinity. The same sense of style was reflected in a futuristic cult of speed, domestic design forms promulgated by the Bauhaus, and the dandyism of George Brummell. Tamara de Lempicka's best-known painting, “Self-Portrait,” or “Tamara in a Green Bugatti,” presents the artist as a female dandy brimming with cool elegance. Whether as an Art-Deco artist, a post-Cubist or a Neoclasissist, de Lempicka struck the taste of a cosmopolitan (and wealthy) public that found its own image reflected in her work. This book traces Tamara de Lempicka’s idiosyncratic career, while the numerous full-color illustrations document the most important periods in her lengthy life in art.
