A bibliographic introduction to Latin metrics, including general and theoretical discussions and discussion of specific verse patterns. Includes separate bibliography and web-based resources.

Edited by Kenneth Haynes, Brown University (Kenneth_Haynes@Brown.edu)

The bibliography offers a selection of works on several topics in Latin meter. More comprehensive bibliographies are listed at the end. The general principles behind this selection are to include, for the most part, works from the last fifty years only (that is, published after 1960); to list around a half-dozen items for each topic; to scant technical or highly specialized discussions on the one hand and more general literary-critical ones on the other; and, with a few exceptions, to avoid referring to books and commentaries on individual poets.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
