  science. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Mathematics, while not a science, is closely allied to the sciences because of their extensive use of it.
The physical sciences include physics, chemistry, and astronomy; the earth sciences (sometimes considered a part of the physical sciences) include geology, paleontology, oceanography, and meteorology; and the life sciences include all the branches of biology such as botany, zoology, genetics, and medicine.
Science, in the modern sense of the term, came into being in the 16th and 17th cent., with the merging of the craft tradition with scientific theory and the evolution of the scientific method.

In "The Ascent of Science," Brian Silver, a professor of physical chemistry at the Israel Institute of Technology, refutes the learned English professor.
Although it is intended for the lay reader, the science is rigorous and humanists will have to work hard to understand it.
"Science is not a means of obtaining absolute truth," he writes.

Science honors nine additional major discoveries in fields that span the universe, from the edgy dance of subatomic particles to the biological wizardry that imprints memories.
In December 1998, the publication of the first genome of a multicellular organism, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, ushered in a new era in genomics--that of rapidly comparing thousands of genes in complex organisms.
Faced with a data deluge, bioinformation experts this year revved up their efforts to link different kinds of information, hoping to allow researchers of all stripes to capitalize on the growing genomic riches.

 MATERIALS SCIENCE: ON MOLECULAR PLASMONICS
For instance, SPs are being explored for their potential in optics, magneto-optic data storage, microscopy, and solar cells, as well as being used to construct sensors for detecting biologically interesting molecules.
SPs are waves that propagate along the surface of a conductor, usually a metal, and are essentially light waves that are trapped on the surface because of their interaction with the free electrons of the conductor (strictly speaking, they should be called surface plasmon polaritons to reflect this hybrid nature(2)).
Plasmons and phonons are examples of "collective excitation", a quantized mode in a many-body system produced by cooperative motion of the whole system as the result of interaction between particles.

 H-Net Review: Andre Wakefield on Newtonianism for the Ladies and Other Uneducated Souls: The Popularization of Science ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
Rogers frames her study in terms that will be familiar to all readers of Kant and Habermas: the Enlightenment sought to cultivate autonomous thought and action, while relying on an expanding public sphere of readers to achieve those goals.
Within this framework, the popularization of science served to reify existing social boundaries and distinctions, while print culture, with its mechanisms of control, divided the knowledge-maker from the recipients of knowledge.
Still, she is quite clear about the moral of her story: "I believe that by unearthing some of these mechanisms, we may look at the roots of contemporary sexism and elitism and contribute to undoing the power it still has in contemporary culture" (p.

Materials Science at UW-Madison is nationally recognized and is committed to providing leadership in research, education and outreach services.
The former is administered by the Materials Science Program, while the latter resides with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
Recent materials science research results that have had national impact include preparation of the first micron-sized metal gears, major advances in X-ray lithography that can be exploited in the design of microelectronic devices, and experiments that have revealed the nature of "weak links" in high-temperature superconductors.

To be sure, the field of human biology has been able to function effectively without much more than a nominal reference to the actual principles of evolutionary theory for a very long time.
The metric analysis and the use of the coefficient of variation is all very carefully and conscientiously thought out, but no consideration is given to the fact that island populations are not the proper model to use for comparison with continentally distributed populations.

These findings enabled him to make fundamental contributions to mathematics, astronomy, and theoretical and experimental physics.
Newton summarized his discoveries in terrestrial and celestial mechanics in his Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica [mathematical principles of natural philosophy] (1687), one of the greatest milestones in the history of science.
In it he showed how his principle of universal gravitation provided an explanation both of falling bodies on the earth and of the motions of planets, comets, and other bodies in the heavens.

 MATERIALS SCIENCE: ON INTERFACE ELECTRONIC RECONSTRUCTION
1) Surface science is an important and well-established branch of materials science involving the study of changes in material properties near a surface or interface.
A fundamental issue has been atomic reconstruction: how the surface lattice symmetry differs from the bulk.
As a step towards a general understanding of such phenomena, the authors present a theoretical study of an interface between a strongly correlated Mott insulator and a band insulator.
