9 In the case of a water and ethanol mixture the maximum of the velocity occurs for a concentration by weight of ethanol of 27%. This percentage is close to the 8 9 Of course, there is a fundamental difference in the sense that, in contrast to molecules, people can adapt to new situations. However, adaptation often relies on the replacement of generations; it should not be overestimated for time spans shorter than 20 years. More details on this point can be found in Roehner (2005a). 75 0 20 40 60 80 100 Concentration by weight of ethanol (%) Fig.

The first technique relies on pattern identification. It is a common experience that even in a very noisy place, such as a pub, we are able to identify a familiar melody however softly played. We do this by pattern matching. Our ears and brain are wonderful pattern matching organs. Catching gravitational wave signals is not unlike what our ears do routinely. Of course, the pattern of the signal depends upon the source. A supernova and a spinning neutron star have very different signal patterns.
