Australian Banking and Finance Law and Regulation provides a comprehensive, up-to-date and accessible introduction to the complexities of contemporary law and regulation of banking and financial sectors in one volume. The book provides a detailed analysis of Australia's financial market regulatory framework and the theoretical underpinnings of government intervention in the field. It delves into the legal changes implemented in response to the Global Financial Crisis and recent local scandals, exploring the complexities and subtleties of the 'banker–customer' relationship. Readers will appreciate the clear and concise treatment of key issues, cases and examples that offer an overview of major developments. The questions and answers at the end of each chapter serve as an effective tool for readers to assess and reinforce their grasp of the fundamental principles discussed.
Underground Nuclear Astrophysics in China (JUNA) will take the advantage of the ultra-low background in Jinping underground lab. High current accelerator with an ECR source and detectors were commissioned. JUNA plans to study directly a number of nuclear reactions important to hydrostatic stellar evolution at their relevant stellar energies. At the first period, JUNA aims at the direct measurements of 25Mg(p,γ)26 Al, 19F(p,α) 16 O, 13C(α, n) 16O and 12C(α,γ) 16O near the Gamow window. The current progress of JUNA will be given.
Although moissanite has been found in various rocks, reliable primary moissanite has been reported only from kimberlites and meteorites. The Dabie Mountain moissanite reported in this paper is the first occurrence of primary moissanite hosted by serpentinite. It differs from synthetic silicon carbide in optical properties, inclusions and infrared spectrum. The biaxiality of the Dabie Mountain moissanite is thought to be the result of intracrystal deformation. In reference to the ultrahigh pressure (7—8 GPa) signature of exsolution of rod-like apatite, clinopyroxene and rutile in garnets, and magnetite lamellae in olivine reported in the Dabieshan, we inferred that the moissanite from the Dabie Mountains was probably generated at a depth of 180 km; and then subducted to a depth of 210—250 km, where the moissanite became biaxial before its exhumation.

A facile inexpensive route has been developed to prepare ZnO hierarchical materials with microplate/nanohole structures based on the colloidal monolayer template by the precursor thermal decomposition. These hierarchical structured materials demonstrated an excellent superhydrophobicity with self-cleaning effect and an enhanced photocatalytic performance to organic molecules, which are attributed to big roughness and large surface area of such special hierarchical structures. The formation mechanism of such hierarchical structures was investigated in detail by tracing morphology changing at different precursor concentrations. At high precursor concentration, both incompletely restricted ZnO growth of colloidal templates and preferable growth of microplates take place at the same time, and hence, ZnO hierarchical materials with microplate/nanohole structures are formed. With increasing precursor concentration, the number density of ZnO microplates tends to be larger. The large number density of ZnO microplates and holes on the microplates render the sample a large surface area and surface roughness, leading to good superhydrophobicity and photocatalytic activity. Such hierarchical ZnO micro/nanostructured materials have important applications in environmental science, microfluidic devices, etc.
We present a primality test for numbers of the form Mh, n = h·2n ±1 (in particular with h divisible by 15), which generalises Berrizbeitia and Berry's test for such numbers with h ≢ 0 mod 5. With our generalised test, the primality of such a number Mh, n can be proved by means of a Lucas sequence with a seed determined by h and πq — primary irreducible divisor of a prime q ≡ 1 mod 4. We call the prime q a judge of the number Mh, n. We prescribe a sequence S of 48 primes ≡ 1 mod 4 in the interval [13, 2593] such that, for all odd h = 15t < 108 and for all n < 7.3 1011, each number Mh, n has a judge q in . Comparisons with Bosma's explicit primality criteria in “a well-defined finite sense” for the case h = 3t < 105 are given.
Nano-sized copper particles are loaded into the pores of monolithic mesoporous silica by soaking and drying, followed by thermal reduction of copper nitrate [Cu(NO3)2]in a hydrogen atmosphere at 973 K for 90 min. It has been shown that copper nanoparticles are isolated from each other and highly uniformly dispersed inside the pores of silica. It is found that the surface plasmon resonance peak of the copper particles shows a significant red-shift with decreasing the particle size, which is in contrast to the corresponding fully embedded system. The peak decreases with exposure time to air and exhibits a linear relation with logarithmic exposure time. This red-shift phenomenon and decrease are explained on the basis of the structural features of this new composite or coexistence of local porosity and the nanoparticle's free surface in contact with air.
