Sarov: RFNC-VNIIEF, 2007. Three-hole punched Xerox-like copy in English. Disbound in accordion folder. 460 pages. In English. Illustrations (some in color). Sarov is a closed town in Nizhny Novgorod Oblast, Russia. It was known as Gorkiy-130 and Arzamas-16, after a (somewhat) nearby town of Arzamas, from 1946 to 1991. Until 1995, it was known as Kremlyov/Kremlev/Kremljov. The town is closed as it is the Russian center for nuclear research. In 1993, the town became a sister city to Los Alamos, New Mexico, the home of the U.S. nuclear weapons design laboratory (Los Alamos National Laboratory, or LANL). Scientists from LANL and VNIIEF have cooperated on various arms control and nuclear safeguards programs, under which the Los Alamos scientists learned, to their amusement, that their Russian colleagues paid homage to their American rivals by irreverently calling their own laboratory "Los Arzamas." It was the first Soviet nuclear weapon development and production center. Initially a KB-11 design bureau was established there, that was developing nuclear weapons. Research and development activities began in 1947. During the same year security forces began to build a perimeter across the closed area. In 1947 the city was removed from all official Soviet maps and statistical documents. The isolation of the area was completed by 1948. The existence of this city was made public and it appeared on the maps only in 1994. This city is a home to two nuclear weapon facilities - design institute and warhead assembly/disassembly facility. Today this city is known as Sarov. It is the main Russian nuclear weapons development and production center.

New York: PublicAffairs, 2004. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xvii, , 298,  pages. Word Index. Subject Index. Nunberg (linguistics, Stanford U.) does not spend much time on the romance of words or decrying the state of the language, but more often takes language as a jumping off point to see what words can reveal about other things, among them culture, war, politics, symbols, media, business, and technology. Many of the 65 essays began life as articles or radio commentaries. These essays are arranged in the following groups: Culture at Large, War Drums, Politics as Usual, Symbols, Media Words, Business Cycles, Tech Talk, and Watching our Language. Geoffrey Nunberg (June 1, 1945 – August 11, 2020) was an American lexical semantician and author. In 2001 he received the Linguistics, Language, and the Public Interest Award from the Linguistic Society of America for his contributions to National Public Radio's Fresh Air, and he has published a number of popular press books including Going Nucular: Language, Politics and Culture in Controversial Times (2004). Nunberg is primarily known for his public-facing work interpreting linguistic science for lay audiences, though his contributions to linguistic theory are also well regarded. Nunberg received his doctorate from the City University of New York (CUNY) in 1977 for his dissertation, The Pragmatics of Reference. Following his education, Nunberg began working as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California Berkeley and visiting professor at Stanford University. In the mid-1980s he moved to the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center where he worked until 2001. He then returned to academia.
Boulder, CO: Westview Press, 1985. Second printing [stated]. Trade paperback. xii, , 253,  pages. Tables. Diagrams. Notes. Glossary. Bibliographies. National Surveys on Defense and Economic Issues. Index. This is one of the Westview Special Studies in National Security and Defense Policy. Clark C. Abt is an American researcher born August 31, 1929 in Cologne, Germany. He became an American citizen in 1945, at age 16, and is known for first formalizing the concept and usages of Serious games. Abt left Germany for the United States in 1937. In 1947, he applied as an aeronautics student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he graduated in 1951. He then served four months in the merchant navy as a seaman, then spent a year at Johns Hopkins University as an English teacher, eventually obtaining a Master's degree in the Writing, Discourse and Drama Department for his thesis, titled A Year of Poems. In 1965, he earned a Ph.D. from MIT in Political Science. He founded Abt Associates immediately afterwards. Abt is known for his book Serious Games (1970), where he formally established a basis for the concept of Serious game. In this work and subsequent ones, he described sports games, role playing games and (then marginal) computer games as mediums for educative, political or marketing ideas. This interest probably stemmed from Abt's involvement with the development of TEMPER, an early computer wargame designed for a Cold War context.

Stanford, CA: Hoover Institution Press, Stanford University, 2009. First Printing [Stated]. Trade paperback. xiii, , 72,  pages. Illustrated front cover. Footnotes. Appendices. Foreword by George P Shultz. This work was sponsored by the Hoover Institution and the National Threat Initiative. A typed note is laid in, indicating that this copy was provided on behalf of Dr. Drell. This study's purpose is to stimulate further discussion and analysis, at both the conceptual and practical levels. For purposes of this study, we assume that the end state will be reached through successive stages of nuclear reductions that resemble the following: 1. The United States and Russia reduce to low numbers (200–500) operationally deployed warheads and bombs of all types; France, China, and the United Kingdom accept ceilings at less than 200; and India, Pakistan, and Israel freeze at then-current levels (assumed not to exceed approximately 100). 2. Each nuclear-armed state reduces deployed warheads to zero and non-deployed warheads to no more than 200, after which each nuclear-armed state might reduce the latter category to an interim number of 50–100 apiece. A variant could have a mix of 50–100 operationally deployed or declared reserve warheads retained by each state while all other warheads are eliminated. 3. Finally, each nuclear-armed state reduces warheads to zero while retaining monitored reconstitution capabilities within agreed parameters and for a period of agreed duration. Although those numbers are hypothetical, they provide a framework for examining key security issues that the United States and other nations will face as they approach and enter the end state.

Los Alamos, NM: Los Alamos National Laboratory, 2004. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. v, , 70,  pages plus covers. Illustrations (many with color). Miniflyer Publications. References. This paper describes a laser-driven MiniFlyer system used at Los Alamos National Laboratory for small-scale shock physics research. The system consists of a single shot Nd:glass driving laser; beam shaping optics; a sample holder, containing the flyer plate assembly and target material; and diagnostic equipment such as velocity interferometers. The beam from the driving laser, when incident on the flyer plate assembly, generates plasma that launches a small thin flyer plate ( 3 mm in diameter by 0.05 to 0.10 mm thick) at velocities up to 1 mm/us. This flyer plate impacts a target material, producing a shock wave. Various dynamic material properties, such as spall strength, can be determined from these experiments. The laser driving system is described in detail, along with several types of diagnostics used to determine the nature of the experiments and to measure the shock parameters. In addition, experiments are described to provide information about the type of research that can be done with this system. Data from these experiments are shown to add important new information concerning the dynamic spall behavior of copper.

Washington DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2007. Final Report--Presumed first edition, first printing. Wraps. Format is approximately 8.5 inches by 11 inches. 272 pages. Illustrated front and back cover. Illustrations (mostly in color). Definition of Terms. References. Appendices. Minor cover wear noted. NASA letter of appreciation to a senior National Nuclear Security Administration technical expert for support to this report. In the 2005 Budget Authorization Act, the U.S. Congress directed the NASA Administrator to provide an analysis of alternatives to detect, track, catalogue, and characterize potentially hazardous near-Earth objects (NEO). Congress required that the Administrator submit a program by December 28, 2006 to survey 90% of the potentially hazardous objects measuring at least 140 meters in diameter by the end of 2020. In addition, the legislation required the Administrator to submit an analysis of alternatives that NASA could employ to divert an object on a likely collision course with Earth. A study team, led by the Office of Program Analysis and Evaluation (PA&E), derived requirements and figures of merit from the Act, and used these factors to evaluate the alternatives. The team developed a range of options from public and private sources and then analyzed their capabilities, levels of performance, life-cycle costs, schedules, and development and operations risks. This document presents the detailed results of these analyses. A summary report was submitted to Congress in December of 2006.

La Grange Park, IL: American Nuclear Society Scientific Publications, 2013. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. xxix, , 280,  pages. Footnotes. Illustrations. Signed with sentiment and dated by compiler on the half-title page. Statement reads Nov. 14, 2018 "Everything in the world is done by and through people" HGR Paul; E. Cantonwine. The compiler has 20 years of experience working on nuclear fuel issues from cradle to grave - including the development, licensing and implementation of new fuel technology. With a Ph.D. In Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Virginia, his technical skills are in Mechanical Behavior of Materials, Statistical Data Analysis, Statistical Modeling, and Failure Analysis. Besides his over 25 published papers, Cantonwine published a collection of Admiral Rickover’s essays in the book “The Never-Ending Challenge of Engineering. This book is a practical and philosophical look at the principles used by engineers and leaders from the perspective of Admiral Hyman George Rickover - one of America's greatest engineers. Admiral Rickover is an icon in the history of nuclear power, and one of his greatest contributions was to develop nuclear power technology to meet much higher safety and quality standards than past technological developments. The record of safety in his nuclear navy and in the US commercial nuclear industry is unique in the history of power technology, and thus the thoughts of the man most responsible for how nuclear power technology was developed in the United States should be of interest to all engineers and leaders working in a technical field-especially ones where customer/public safety and quality are paramount.

Gainesville, FL: University of Florida, 1990. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Comb binding. vi, 75 pages. Clear plastic sheet in front of thesis cover. List of Figures. Abstract. Introduction. Experimental Description. Results. Conclusions, Appendices, and References. This work involved a literature survey, both theoretical and experimental methods and a review of current work. The experiment involved apparatus, procedure, sample description and post exposure analysis. The primary conclusion was that neither UO2 nor ThOs were suitable for use as structural or lining materials in exposure to pure UF4 in either the liquid or gas phase. However the results did prove the applicability of the phase diagram produced by Fonteneau and Lucas to the liquid phase reactions of these compounds, as well as proving the assumption that at the temperatures of interest in this study, corrosive reactions would proceed to equilibrium so rapidly as to make reaction kinetics relatively unimportant.
