This is the way it starts. ..
. .. with the Silence, born of mysterious, space-originated phenomena that render Earth's dominant applied sciences dead -- inspiring paranoia and alien invasion fears inside mystery executive enterprises, 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 -- an exciting, seething stew of microscopic equipment and genetic engineering; of totalinarianism, eco-terrorism and violence -- Marie Laveau's starvation for vengance is giving technique to anything greater.
For future has named her savior of the outcasts, the opressed, the crazies, the hunted and the Silence's mutant little ones, who all flock to her dream of a destiny as candy as an Ellington riff. .. and a secure haven referred to as Crescent urban.

Example text

The Fermi level (EoF ) represents the 50 % probability of finding an electron in this level. For intrinsic semiconductors, EoF falls inside the energetic gap and depends on the mass of electrons at the end of the conduction band (mÃe ), on the effective mass of electrons at the beginning of the valence band (mÃh ), and on the amplitude of the band gap (Eg). The equation of the Fermi level is as follows: EFo  Ã 1 3 m ¼ EG þ kTln hà 2 4 me ð1:43Þ The value of EoF is equivalent to the electrochemical potential of an electron.

In the propagation of a wave through a crystal lattice, the frequency is a periodic function of some wave vector k, in which multiple solutions to the Schro¨dinger equation exist, labeled by n, the band index that numbers the energy bands. Each of these energy levels, with changes in k, forms a smooth band of states. For each band, a function En(k) can be defined. The wave vector takes on any value inside what is known as the Brillouin zone [77], which is a polyhedron in reciprocal space of the crystal lattice.
