Comprehensive multi-volume encyclopedias: pauly-wissowa and its offspring

Real-Encyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft . 2nd ed. August Pauly, Georg Wissowa, Wilhelm Kroll, and Karl Mittelhaus, eds. 68 vols., plus 15 supplementary vols. Stuttgart. 1894-1980. [Abbreviation: RE or P-W ; the supplementary volumes are customarily identified with the letter A: e. g., RE 13A]

Comprehensive encyclopedia of the classical world on a vast scale, covering from the Bronze Age to the Carolingian renaissance (ca. 800 CE ). Written and material sources are given equal consideration. Articles typically very detailed and thorough.

Paulys Real-Encyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft. Gesamtregister . Tobias Erler et al., eds. 2 vols. Stuttgart. 1997, 2000.

Since many articles of RE were published out of sequence and a number were revised, sometimes heavily revised, either in later volumes of the regular series or in the supplementary series, it can sometimes be difficult to locate the article you want. To remedy that, the first volume of these two gives an alphabetic listing of all articles with their location (and thus replaces several earlier partial indexes). The second volume, a subject index, is not an actual book but was issued solely on a CD-ROM.

Der Kleine Pauly. Lexikon der Antike . Konrat Ziegler, Walther Sontheimer, and Hans Gärtner, eds. 5 vols. Stuttgart. 1964-75.

A handily consulted abridgment of the large-scale RE , yet also incorporating many new articles with fresh methods and points of view, not to mention more recent bibliography. Each volume includes supplements and corrigenda et addenda not only for that volume but for previous ones as well; of these, there is no index. An inexpensive paperback version was published for the Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft (Munich, 1979).

Der Neue Pauly. Encyclopädie der Antike . Hubert Cancik and Helmuth Schneider, eds. 16 vols. in 19 parts. Stuttgart. 1996-2003. [ DNP ]

A thorough revision of RE , on a smaller scale and with a somewhat different arrangement. Volumes 1-12/1 deal with antiquity proper; Volumes 13-15/3, with the reception of the various subjects and the history of scholarship thereon—a feature not found in the earlier versions. Supplements are found in volumes 12/2 and 15/3. Volume 16 contains indexes, lists, and tables. Far more attractive in format than its parent. A number of valuable supplementary volumes have been published as well, starting in 2004:

Vol. 1: Herrscherchronologien der antiken Welt: Namen, Daten, Dynastien . Walter Eder and Johannes Renger, eds.

Vol. 2: Geschichte der antiken Texte: Autoren- und Werklexikon . Manfred Landfester et al., eds.

Vol. 3: Historischer Atlas der antiken Welt . Anne-Maria Wittke, Eckhart Olshausen, and Richard Szydlak, eds.

Vol. 4: Rezeptions- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte: Register zu den Bänden 13-15/3 . Manfred Landfester and Brigitte Egger, eds.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
