Die Vertrauensforschung, noch vor 10 Jahren eine Art Stiefkind wissenschaftlicher Schwerpunktsetzungen, boomt. Neue Erkenntnisse sind gewonnen, neue Themenfelder erschlossen, im gesellschaftlichen Diskurs sind Vertrauensphanomene bzw. Vertrauenskrisen in aller Munde. Dieser Band versucht, die inzwischen hohe Vielfalt der vorliegenden Forschungsergebnisse zu bundeln und den 'State of the Art' in verschiedenen wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zu resumieren. Aktuelle theoretische Stromungen, wissenschaftliche Fragestellungen und empirische Ergebnisse werden von renommierten Wissenschaftler/innen interdisziplinar beleuchtet. Die behandelten Thematiken orientieren sich hierbei an zentralen Lebensbereichen und -phasen, dementsprechend liegt der Fokus auf den Aspekten -Vertrauen im Lebenslauf-, -Vertrauen und soziale Systeme- sowie -Vertrauen im Kontext von Pravention und Intervention-."

Die europäische Medienlandschaft ändert sich gegenwärtig durch die Verfügbarkeit neuer Technologien und durch veränderte politische Rahmenbedingungen - wie z. B. die Zulassung privatwirtschaftlicher Sender - in einem schnellen Tempo, das durch die bevorstehende europäische Einigung noch zusätzlich forciert wird. Damit kommen auf die Medienwissenschaft wie auch auf die Medienpsychologie neue Fragestellungen und Anforderungen zu, die von Medienforschern und -praktikern aus zehn europäischen Ländern in diesem in englischer Sprache verfaßten Band aufgezeigt und erörtert werden.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: In Zeiten immer schnelleren Fortschrittes der Wissenschaft, Technik und Wirtschaft steigen die Anforderungen an die Menschen, die diese Bereiche gestalten und lenken. Dies gilt auch für das Personalmanagement bei seinem Umgang mit den in zweierlei Hinsicht knappen Personalressourcen. Erstens zeigt die demografische Entwicklung, dass immer weniger Menschen im arbeitsfähigen Alter zur Verfügung stehen. Zweitens sieht sich die Wirtschaft einem Engpass an Arbeitskräften entgegen, die den qualifikatorischen Anforderungen entsprechen. Diese zweite Ursache führt zum War for Talent . Aus diesen Entwicklungen lässt sich schließen, dass die Ressource Humankapital immer bedeutender wird. Der Erfolg eines Unternehmens hängt vom richtigen Einsatz dieser wertvollen Ressource ab, der maßgebend vom Personalmarketing gesteuert wird. Das Personalmarketing avanciert damit zu einer Schlüsselfunktion im Unternehmen und versucht die geeignetsten Mitarbeiter zu gewinnen und diese an das Unternehmen zu binden. Im Rahmen des Personalmarketings wird das Employer Branding immer wichtiger. Es geht dabei um die Gestaltung einer Arbeitgebermarke, die durch ein unverwechselbares Erscheinungsbild helfen soll im War for Talent zu bestehen. Nicht nur das Employer Branding hat das Personalmarketing stark verändert, sondern auch die vermehrte internetgestützte Kommunikation. Die Unternehmen können dabei vielfältige neue Methoden im Rahmen des Personalmarketings einsetzen. Die Aktualität des Personalmarketings lässt sich auch aus den Tageszeitungen und fachlichen Zeitschriften entnehmen, die über den derzeitigen und zukünftigen Arbeitskräftemangel oder über das aktuelle Employer Branding berichten. Gang der Untersuchung: Kapitel 2 zeigt die für das Personalmarketing relevanten Veränderungen der Rahmenbedingungen auf. Darunter fallen der Wandel des Personalmanagements und des Arbeitsmarktes sowie der demografische Wandel und der Wertewandel. Besondere Berücksichtigung findet das Humankapital, das nicht nur als Produktionsfaktor gesehen wird, sondern als zentraler Erfolgsfaktor für Unternehmen. Kapitel 3 erläutert die Grundlagen des Personalmarketings. Zuerst erfolgt eine Einführung in das allgemeine Marketing, da das Personalmarketing durch die Übertragung von Prinzipien des Marketings auf das Personalwesen entstand. Nach einer Darstellung der Methodenähnlichkeit von Marketing und Personalmarketing folgt eine Einführung in die zeitliche Entwicklung [...]

Silicon photonics is currently a very active and progressive area of research, as silicon optical circuits have emerged as the replacement technology for copper-based circuits in communication and broadband networks. The demand for ever improving communications and computing performance continues, and this in turn means that photonic circuits are finding ever increasing application areas. This text provides an important and timely overview of the ‘hot topics’ in the field, covering the various aspects of the technology that form the research area of silicon photonics. With contributions from some of the world’s leading researchers in silicon photonics, this book collates the latest advances in the technology. Silicon Photonics: the State of the Art opens with a highly informative foreword, and continues to feature: the integrated photonic circuit; silicon photonic waveguides; photonic bandgap waveguides; mechanisms for optical modulation in silicon; silicon based light sources; optical detection technologies for silicon photonics; passive silicon photonic devices; photonic and electronic integration approaches; applications in communications and sensors. Silicon Photonics: the State of the Art covers the essential elements of the entire field that is silicon photonics and is therefore an invaluable text for photonics engineers and professionals working in the fields of optical networks, optical communications, and semiconductor electronics. It is also an informative reference for graduate students studying for PhD in fibre optics, integrated optics, optical networking, microelectronics, or telecommunications.

Computational Intelligence is a very dynamic domain of modern information society which integrates fields such as neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation and intelligent systems in general. The book presents papers from the Euro-International Symposium on Computational Intelligence held in Kosice (Slovak Republic) in August 2000. It contains theoretical studies along with a chapter on applications and case studies. One of the main results of the symposium is that the combination of various techniques into hybrid intelligent systems will be very important for the development of intelligent information systems in the 21st century. The book also contains interesting forewords written by L.A. Zadeh, D.E. Goldberg, and K. Fukushima.

This report establishes the state of the art in a full range of renewable energy technologies that harness the power of oceans. Papers discuss mature technologies, such as tidal energy extraction, and conjectural technologies, such as salinity gradients. In addition, the economics of the major systems are compared in a uniform manner, making it possible to realistically assess their economic potential. This publication provides a single source of balanced technical and economic assessments of competing technologies and should interest those involved in the search for alternative sources of energy.

Quasicrystals: The State of the Art has proven to be a useful introduction to quasicrystals for mathematicians, physicists, materials scientists, and students. The original intent was for the book to be a progress report on recent developments in the field. However, the authors took care to adopt a broad, pedagogical approach focusing on points of lasting value. Many subtle and beautiful aspects of quasicrystals are explained in this book (and nowhere else) in a way that is useful for both the expert and the student. In this second edition, some authors have appended short notes updating their essays. Two new chapters have been added. Chapter 16, by Goldman and Thiel, reviews the experimental progress since the first edition (1991) in making quasicrystals, determining their structure, and finding applications. In Chapter 17, Steinhardt discusses the quasi-unit cell picture, a promising, new approach for describing the structure and growth of quasicrystals in terms of a single, repeating, overlapping cluster of atoms.
