By Dimitris N. Chorafas

the purpose of this publication is to discover technology and know-how from the perspective of constructing new wisdom, instead of the reinterpretation of latest wisdom in ever larger yet doubtful element. Scientists and technologists make development by way of distinguishing among what they regard as significant and what they think about as secondary or unimportant. The significant is dynamic; mostly, the fewer very important is static. technological know-how and expertise have made an important contribution to the tradition and to the normal of dwelling of our society. From antiquity to the current day, the main wonderful scientists and technologists were thinkers, experimenters and folks prepared and ready to problem “the obvious”. expertise develops items and techniques in keeping with the breakthroughs of technological know-how. If technologists fail to gradually improve their talents, instruments and techniques, they're going to basically be nearly as good as their final layout, risking obsolescence. utilizing functional examples and case reviews, this booklet files the correlations current among technology and know-how, and elucidates those correlations with functional functions starting from real-life events, from R&D to strength creation. because it is a salient challenge, and a such a lot demanding one to our society, energy creation has been selected as a tremendous case learn. The holistic method of technology and know-how by means of this article complements the facility to bring useful effects. This e-book is meant for college students and researchers of technology, know-how and mathematical research, whereas additionally delivering a precious reference booklet for pros.
