"This highly informative book provides precisely analysed situations highlighting migration's crucial role for emancipatory change and hence socio-political innovation. A so far hidden perspective is being made visible and contributes a highly compelling piece for rewriting Switzerland's history."
-Julia Nentwich, Research Institute for Organisational Psychology, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland

"Francesca Falk proposes a migrantisation of the history of gender equality in Switzerland. It was women with experience of migration who were engaged on behalf of women's suffrage with special verve. It was working Italian women in particular who created the conditions for the expansion of childcare infrastructure."
-Elisabeth Joris, Historian, Zurich, Switzerland

"Instead of sidelining issues of migration and gender, as is done so often, this important book teaches us that these perspectives must be central to any substantial narration of Swiss history."
-Patricia Purtschert, Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies, University of Bern, Switzerland

This open access book analyses migration and its relation to socio-political transformation in Switzerland. It addresses how migration has made new forms of life possible and shows how this process generated gender innovation in different fields: the changing division of work, the establishment of a nursery infrastructure, access to higher education for women, and the struggle for female suffrage. Seeing society through the lens of migration alters the perspective from which our past and thus our present is told-and our future imagined.

Francesca Falk is Senior Lecturer in Contemporary History at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland.

This textbook explains Technology Roadmapping, in both its development and practice, and illustrates the underlying theory of, and empirical evidence for, technologic evolution over time afforded by this strategy. The book contains a rich set of examples and practical exercises from a wide array of domains in applied science and engineering such as transportation, energy, communications, and medicine. Professor de Weck gives a complete review of the principles, methods, and tools of technology management for organizations and technologically-enabled systems, including technology scouting, roadmapping, strategic planning, R&D project execution, intellectual property management, knowledge management, partnering and acquisition, technology transfer, innovation management, and financial technology valuation. Special topics also covered include Moore's law, S-curves, the singularity and fundamental limits to technology. Ideal for university courses in engineering, management, and business programs, as well as self-study or online learning for professionals in a range of industries, readers of this book will learn how to develop and deploy comprehensive technology roadmaps and R&D portfolios on diverse topics of their choice.

  • Introduces a unique framework, Advanced Technology Roadmap Architecture (ATRA), for developing quantitative technology roadmaps and competitive R&D portfolios through a lucid and rigorous step-by-step approach;
  • Elucidates the ATRA framework through analysis which was validated on an actual $1 billion R&D portfolio at Airbus, leveraging a pedagogy significantly beyond typical university textbooks and problem sets;
  • Reinforces concepts with in-depth case studies, practical exercises, examples, and thought experiments interwoven throughout the text;
  • Maximizes reader competence on how to explicitly link strategy, finance, and technology.

The book follows and supports the MIT Professional Education Courses "Management of Technology: Roadmapping & Development," and "Management of Technology: Strategy & Portfolio Analysis"

This textbook describes rules and procedures for the use of Differential Operators (DO) in Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE). The book provides a detailed theoretical and numerical description of ODE. It presents a large variety of ODE and the chosen groups are used to solve a host of physical problems. Solving these problems is of interest primarily to students of science, such as physics, engineering, biology and chemistry. 

Scientists are greatly assisted by using the DO obeying several simple algebraic rules. The book describes these rules and, to help the reader, the vocabulary and the definitions used throughout the text are provided. A thorough description of the relatively straightforward methodology for solving ODE is given. The book provides solutions to a large number of associated problems. ODE that are integrable, or those that have one of the two variables missing in any explicit form are also treated with solved problems. The physics and applicable mathematics are explained and many associated problems are analyzed and solved in detail. Numerical solutions are analyzed and the level of exactness obtained under various approximations is discussed in detail.
