Tradition, modernity and European hegemony in the Mediterranean (2002)
Journal Article
Argyrou, V. (2002). Tradition, modernity and European hegemony in the Mediterranean. Journal of Mediterranean studies, 12(1), 23-42

This paper argues that tradition and modernity, invented in European societies with an eye both on the European past and the non-European present, are ontological categories which structure the way we think about the world. This means that the world... Read More

An investigation of the sensitivity of embedded passive component temperatures to PCB structure (2002)
Journal Article
Stubbs, D. M., Pulko, S. H., & Wilkinson, A. J. (2002). An investigation of the sensitivity of embedded passive component temperatures to PCB structure. IEEE Transactions on Components and Packaging Technologies, 25(4), 701-707. doi:10.1109/TCAPT.2002.806175

The embedding of passive components such as resistors, capacitors and inductors within printed circuit boards (PCBs) is motivated, to a large extent, by the desire for increased miniaturization of electronic goods. However, resistors and, to a lesser... Read More
