Single-electron tunneling (SET) and comparable phenomena have lately end up regarded as "hot topics". This additionally turned obvious once we prepared the 4th foreign convention on Superconducting and Quantum impact units and Their purposes, SQUID'91, which used to be held June 18-21, 1991, in Berlin, Germany. inspired through the variety of contributions devoted to the recent physics of ultrasmall units, we deemed it applicable to commit this quantity of the Springer sequence in Electronics and Photonics to those really expert complaints. the opposite contributions offered at SQUID'91, that are extra traditional in personality yet however comprise excitingly cutting edge effects, are released individually as quantity sixty four of the sequence Springer lawsuits in Physics. in the beginning look it sort of feels unusual convention abbreviated SQUID'91 should still allure such a lot of papers on non-superconducting units, and in reality the 1st SQUID'XX meetings dealt completely with the physics and expertise of Josephson junctions, SQUIDs and different superconducting units and their ap­ plications. besides the fact that, many thoughts built for superconducting units, like tunneling, flux quantization, and flux-charge conjugation, seemed to be appropriate for ultrasmall non-superconducting buildings in addition, and lots of researchers within the box of superconducting units prolonged their actions consequently. therefore the extension of the convention programme advanced really informally. in the meantime, the conferences tested themselves as famous convention sequence culture­ best friend liked through the SQUID group for its balanced mix of physics and know-how, overview and preview. SQUID'XX grew to become one of those a trademark.

The IAU Colloquium No. 143 "The sunlight as a Variable famous person: sunlight and Stellar Irradiance adaptations" was once hung on June 20 - 25, 1993 on the Clarion Harvest residence, Boulder, Colorado, united states. the most aim of this Colloquium used to be to study the latest effects at the observations, theoretical interpreta­ tions, and empirical and actual versions of the differences saw in sunlight and stellar irradiances. a unique emphasis of the Colloquium was once to debate the implications received at the climatic influence of sun irradiance variability. The examine of alterations in sunlight and stellar irradiances has been of excessive curiosity for a very long time. deciding on absolutely the price of the luminosity of stars with diverse a long time is an important query for the idea of stellar evolu­ tion and effort construction of stellar interiors. Observations of the temporal adjustments of sun and stellar irradiances - within the complete spectral band and at various wavelengths - supply an extra software for learning the actual approaches under the photosphere and within the sun- stellar atmospheres. because the Sun's radiative output is the most driving force of the actual procedures with­ within the Earth's surroundings, the learn of irradiance adjustments is a very very important factor for climatic experiences in addition. Climatic versions exhibit that small, yet continual adjustments in sun irradiance might effect the Earth's climate.

Biominerals are generated through the sophisticated interplay of organic association and mineral development. They belong either to the residing and the inanimate international and as such their genesis is likely one of the so much intri­ guing and basic matters in technological know-how. in spite of the fact that, the conceptual and technical assets which are to be had in actual chemistry and within the organic sciences is frequently insufficient for the elucidation of the professional­ blems concerned, and for this reason this box is especially tricky to ex­ plore. this can be a tremendous the reason is, primary study on bio­ mineralization mechanisms has normally been performed by means of a com­ paratively small crew of scientists. There are indicators, besides the fact that, that the location is ripe for a metamorphosis. quite a few conferences on biomineralization were equipped within the previous few years, quite within the scientific area. it's typically felt that extra advancements within the remedy of bone and the teeth ailments should be mostly depending on a better knowing of the fundamen­ tal underlying mechanisms of biomineralization.
