Nanotech Quartet [3]

Nominated - Nebula 2000, Nominated - Locus SciFi 2001

Note, it is a prequel to Queen urban Jazz

This is the way it starts off. ..
. .. with the Silence, born of mysterious, space-originated phenomena that render Earth's dominant applied sciences dead -- inspiring paranoia and alien invasion fears inside of mystery govt companies, which, in flip, encourage repressive activities opposed to a perceived enemy populace.

. .. and with homicide, as New Orleans mob boss and voudoun queen, Marie Laveau, dies in a hail of gunfire -- and is remade throughout the wonders of nanotechnology.

In a brand new global that necessity has transfigured -- a thrilling, seething stew of microscopic equipment and genetic engineering; of totalinarianism, eco-terrorism and violence -- Marie Laveau's starvation for vengance is giving strategy to anything greater.
For future has named her savior of the outcasts, the opressed, the crazies, the hunted and the Silence's mutant kids, who all flock to her dream of a destiny as candy as an Ellington riff. .. and a secure haven known as Crescent urban.

Martin: Experimental Aspects of Metal Clusters 23 Fig. 16. An n/z spectrum of Nazn clusters. large clusters were first charged by multistep ionization using a high-fluence, arF laser. The clusters were then heated to reduce their size by evaporation. A portion of the spectrum is expanded to show the appearance threshold for Na5+ n clusters (black filled). 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 are 27 ± 1, 64 ± 1, 123 ± 2, 208 ± 5, 321 ± 5 and 448 ± 10 atoms, respectively. These values are plotted on a double log scale in Figure 18.

The fission process for nuclei can be described qualitatively in terms of three energies; the initial energy (Ei ) of the charged, nondeformed clusters, the final energy (Ef ) which is the sum of the energies of the noninteracting fission products. The third energy necessary to characterize fission products. The third energy necessary to characterize fission is the energy (Eb ) of the lowest barrier separating the initial and final states. If Eb < Ei , the nucleus is unstable. If Ef < Ei < Eb , the nucleus is metastable to fission by tunneling through the barrier.
