Boobs. knockers. Hooters. titties. Jugs. Breasts. We rejoice them; we revile them. They nourish us; they kill us. And despite what we name them, breasts have involved us on account that prehistoric instances. This A-to-Z encyclopedia explores the historic importance and cultural value of the breast over the years and round the world.

A workforce of overseas students from a variety of disciplines offers key insights and knowledge in regards to the breast in paintings, historical past, type, social activities, drugs, sexuality, and extra. Entries talk about depictions of breasts on historical collectible figurines, in Renaissance work, and in present-day ads. They learn how style has emphasised or de-emphasized the breast at a variety of instances. They take on clinical issues—such as breast augmentation and breast cancer—and controversies over breastfeeding. The breast as sexual item or even a domain of smuggling also are lined. As a complete, the Cultural Encyclopedia of the Breast takes a fascinating and available examine this remarkable physique half.

Indeed, F changes sign from positive at low densities to negative at high densities. Although this equation describes the electron density dependence of the energy of formation (with the exception of the density dependence of the selfinteraction of an ion with its screening electrons), it is not sufficient, as emphasized by Hafner (1983) and as recognized by Pettifor and Gelatt themselves. The interatomic potentials can contribute significantly to the energy of formation. Thus, at the present moment, there is no simple microscopic model applicable to all simple metal alloys.

22 which is predicted by the closest packing of atoms on this lattice. 2 Electronegativity The zinc blende lattice considered in Fig. 1 is more typical of a covalent rather than an ionic system, since its atoms are fourfold tetrahedrally coordinated like the carbon atoms in diamond. This more open structure is a consequence of the directional nature of the sp^ covalent bonding which is absent in the ionic treatment of the atoms as spherical entities. Thus, another factor that determines structural stability is the amount of ionic character or ionicity of the bond, Pauhng (1960) related the ionicity y; of a heteronuclear AB bond to the electronegativity difference Δ= - A^A through where Ä: is a constant and A^^es is the number of resonating bonds per atom.
