Phenomena of Optical Metamaterials provides an overview of phenomena enabled by artificial and designed metamaterials and their application for photonic devices. The book explores the study of active metamaterials with tunable and switchable properties and novel functionalities, such as the control of spontaneous emission and enhancement.   Meta-phenomena would not be subject to physical constraints like the inverse-square law and the light barrier, but would exist at a higher level of abstraction. Imagine waves of subtle energy (information) pouring forth from the galactic center, almost instantly reaching every star and spilling into each solar system and planet.   This is the first book to introduce the new statistics - effect sizes, confidence intervals, and meta-analysis - in an accessible way. It is chock full of practical examples and tips on how to analyze and report research results using these techniques. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to performing meta-analysis using the statistical software R. It is intended for quantitative researchers and students in the medical and social sciences who wish to learn how to perform meta-analysis with R. As such, the book introduces the key concepts and models used in meta-analysis.

The first book I’m going to mention is by the philosopher who first taught me metaphysics — when I was an undergraduate in the s — the late E.J. Lowe or Jonathan Lowe at Durham University.

The word "metaphysics" comes from two Greek words that, together, literally mean "after or behind or among [the study of] the natural". Metafiction is a form of fiction which emphasizes its own constructedness in a way that continually reminds readers to be aware that they are reading or viewing a fictional work. Metafiction is self-conscious about language, literary form, and story-telling, and works of metafiction directly or indirectly draw attention to their status as artifacts.

Metafiction is fiction about fiction. It is a novel or short story (or film or play) in which the author knowingly draws attention to the fact that it is being made up. This book provides a very clear overview of meta-analysis – what it is, why we use it, how to perform and interpret a meta-analysis, and how to avoid common mistakes. It starts with basic ideas (how to compute an effect size and perform a simple analysis) but then moves on to more advanced issues (subgroups analysis, meta-regression, multiple. This book provides a clear and thorough introduction to meta-analysis, the process of synthesizing data from a series of separate studies. Meta-analysis has become a critically important tool in fields as diverse as medicine, pharmacology, epidemiology, education, psychology, business, and s: This is the first book to introduce the new statistics - effect sizes, confidence intervals, and meta-analysis - in an accessible is chock full of practical examples and tips on how to analyze and report research results using these s:
