»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Blockchain ermöglicht Peer-to-Peer-Transaktionen ohne jede Zwischenstelle wie eine Bank. Die Teilnehmer bleiben anonym und dennoch sind alle Transaktionen transparent und nachvollziehbar. Somit ist jeder Vorgang fälschungssicher. Dank Blockchain muss man sein Gegenüber nicht mehr kennen und ihm vertrauen – das Vertrauen wird durch das System als Ganzes hergestellt. Und digitale Währungen wie Bitcoins sind nur ein Anwendungsgebiet der Blockchain-Revolution. In der Blockchain kann jedes wichtige Dokument gespeichert werden: Urkunden von Universitäten, Geburts- und Heiratsurkunden und vieles mehr. Die Blockchain ist ein weltweites Register für alles. In diesem Buch zeigen die Autoren, wie sie eine fantastische neue Ära in den Bereichen Finanzen, Business, Gesundheitswesen, Erziehung und darüber hinaus möglich machen wird.

Krisenjahre und Aufbruchszeit

Alltag und Politik im französisch besetzten Baden 1945–1949

Frankreich: "Erbfeind" oder "Erneuerer"? Die französische Besatzungspolitik von 1945 bis 1949 galt lange als Hindernis für die deutsch-französische Freundschaft. Aber das Bild muß korrigiert werden. Die französische Politik zeichnete sich bei aller Widersprüchlichkeit durch Eigenständigkeit, Originalität und durch Reformansätze aus, die sich an den Zielen von Demokratisierung, Dezentralisierung und Denazifizierung orientierten. Ein Teil der Reformen versandete jedoch, weil sie den Alltagsbedürfnissen der Bevölkerung nicht entsprachen. Dies zeigen die Autoren am Beispiel des Landes Baden. Eindringlich schildern sie, Alltag und Alltagsnot der Menschen und bringen das in Zusammenhang mit der politischen Geschichte. Die Betroffenen empfanden die französischen Vorhaben trotz überzeugender Konzepte häufig als negativ. Diese Kluft wirkte noch lange nach. Ein Beispiel ist die in der französischen Besatzungszone praktizierte Spielart der Entnazifizierung, die "auto-épuration". Sie sollte nicht schematisch, sondern unter Würdigung der individuellen Umstände die wirklich Schuldigen treffen und zugleich, da die Deutschen selbst entscheidend am Verfahren beteiligt waren, eine gründliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Vergangenheit ermöglichen. Die Art der Verwirklichung ließ die "Selbst-Reinigung" scheitern, doch die Idee kann immer noch eine gewisse Plausibilität beanspruchen. Sie war nicht die einzige Besonderheit Nachkriegsbadens innerhalb der Besatzungszonen. Manches aus der Nachkriegszeit Badens ist vergessen worden, war aber keineswegs bedeutungslos. Dieses Buch hilft mit, es wieder bewußt zu machen.

The International Conference on Geological Information represents the first major attempt to bring together geoscience information specialists from allover the world. The purpose of the conference was to assess the current state-of the-art in geoscience information from both the regional and functional point of view. It was hoped that the conference could take steps to bring about increased international cooperation and collaboration in the field of geological information. The papers ranged over the whole spec trum of documentation from primary publishing back to the user, including data. Perhaps a keyword for the conference might be "cooperation". The idea of, and need for, cooperation was stressed in almost every talk. The final panel session was devoted to a discussion on the formation of a proposed International Association for Geological Information. Despite the growing pressure on information managers, stimulated by increasing international activities in geology, the global perspective of plate tectonics and worldwide concern for the availability of non-renewable resources, there does not exist an international organisation specifi cally concerned with geological information. Delegates agreed that there was no need for a new professional society of individuals but that a federation or similar organisation might be desirable. In the final session it became apparent that if the geological information community is to make the best use of all the systems and developments available there is very clearly a need to know what exists in all these areas at present. An urgent task is to identify these systems.

These Transactions publish archival papers in the broad area of Petri nets and other models of concurrency, ranging from theoretical work to tool support and industrial applications. ToPNoC issues are published as LNCS volumes, and hence are widely distributed and indexed. This Journal has its own Editorial Board which selects papers based on a rigorous two-stage refereeing process. ToPNoC contains: - Revised versions of a selection of the best papers from workshops and tutorials at the annual Petri net conferences - Special sections/issues within particular subareas (similar to those published in the Advances in Petri Nets series) - Other papers invited for publication in ToPNoC - Papers submitted directly to ToPNoC by their authors The 9th volume of ToPNoC contains revised and extended versions of a selection of the best workshop papers presented at the 34th International Conference on Application and Theory of Petri Nets and Concurrency (Petri Nets 2013) and the 13th International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD 2013). It also contains one paper submitted directly to ToPNoC. The 8 papers cover a diverse range of topics including model checking and system verification, refinement and synthesis, foundational work on specific classes of Petri nets, and innovative applications of Petri nets and other models of concurrency. Application areas covered in this volume are: biological systems, communication protocols, business processes, distributed systems, and multi-agent systems. Thus, this volume gives a good view of ongoing concurrent systems and Petri nets research.
