By P. B. Medawar
To these drawn to a existence in technology, Sir Peter Medawar, Nobel laureate, deflates the myths of invincibility, superiority and genius; as an alternative, he demonstrates it's common feel and an inquiring brain which are necessary to the scientist's calling.

Vito Volterra (1860-1940) was once essentially the most well-known representatives of Italian technological know-how in his day. Angelo Guerragio and Giovanni Paolini examine Volterra's most crucial contributions to arithmetic and their functions, in addition to his amazing organizational achievements in medical coverage.

Having investigated the exact spin correlations in the original Kitaev model, Chap. 5 investigates those in an extended Kitaev model. The addition of a time reversal symmetry breaking three spin interaction leaves the exact solubility and the mapping of the spin correlations to a quantum quench intact, but leads to a new QSL phase with non-Abelian quasiparticles. I discuss the special role of flux excitations in this phase which locally bind Majorana fermions. I show that peculiar signatures of these bound states are manifest in the spin structure factor.
