Il terzo numero della serie degli Annali del Centro Internazionale di Scienze Semiotiche di Urbino (CiSS) riunisce gli interventi del seminario del 2022 organizzato dal centro e dedicato a "Le scienze e l'Antropocene". Questo volume raccoglie una serie di contributi che, attraverso una lente interdisciplinare, esplorano le sfide e le implicazioni di questa presunta nuova era geologica. Al suo interno verranno affrontate diverse questioni pressanti, come la legittimità di considerare l'Antropocene un'epoca geologica, la relazione tra fenomeni migratori e cambiamenti climatici, la concezione della natura adottata dalla civiltà occidentale e il difficile tentativo di integrare le differenti prospettive delle scienze naturali e sociali. Nonostante la varietà dei punti di vista presentati, tutti i contributi invitano i lettori ad approfondire la comprensione dell'Antropocene, a riflettere sul nostro ruolo come agenti del cambiamento geologico e a esplorare nuove vie per un futuro sostenibile e in armonia con il nostro pianeta.

Gauss's law for electric fields, Gauss's law for magnetic fields, Faraday's law, and the Ampere–Maxwell law are four of the most influential equations in science. In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain-language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the equation, for both the integral and differential forms. The final chapter shows how Maxwell's equations may be combined to produce the wave equation, the basis for the electromagnetic theory of light. This book is a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. A website hosted by the author at www.cambridge.org/9780521701471 contains interactive solutions to every problem in the text as well as audio podcasts to walk students through each chapter.
