Title:A Direct Method for Parabolic PDE Constrained Optimization Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Andreas Potschka
Date:2014
Publisher:Wiesbaden : Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden : Imprint: Springer Spektrum
Size:1 online resource
Note:Andreas Potschka discusses a direct multiple shooting method for dynamic optimization problems constrained by nonlinear, possibly time-periodic, parabolic partial differential equations. In contrast to indirect methods, thisapproach automatically com putes adjoint derivatives without requiring the user to formulate adjoint equations, which can be time-consuming and error-prone. The author describes and analyzes in detail a globalized inexact SequentialQuadratic Programming method that exploits the mat hematical structures of this approach and problem class for fast numerical performance. The book features applications, including results for a real-world chemical engineeringseparation problem. Contents Parabolic PDE Constrained Optimization Problems Two-Grid Newton-Picard Inexact SQP Structure Exploiting Solution of QPs Applications and Numerical Results Target Groups Researchers and students in the fields of mathematics, information systems, and scientific computing Users with PDE constrainedo ptimization problems, in particular in (bio-)chemical engineering The Author Dr. Andreas Potschka is a postdoctoral researcher in the Simulation and Optimization group of Prof. Dr. Dres. h.c.

Title:Basic Concepts in Computational Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Benjamin A. Stickler
Ewald Schachinger
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:With the development of ever more powerful computers a new branch of physics and engineering evolved over the last few decades: Computer Simulation or Computational Physics. It serves two main purposes: - Solution of complexmathematical problems such as, differential equations, minimization/optimization, or high-dimensional sums/integrals. - Direct simulation of physical processes, as for instance, molecular dynamics or Monte-Carlo simulation ofphysical/chemical/technical processes. Consequently, the book is divided into two main parts: Deterministic methods and stochastic methods. Based on concrete problems, the first part discusses numerical differentiation and integration,and the treatment of ordinary differential equations. This is augmented by n otes on the numerics of partial differential equations. The second part discusses the generation of random numbers, summarizes the basics of stochastics whichis then followed by the introduction of various Monte-Carlo (MC) methods. Specific emphasis is on MARKOV chain MC algorithms. All this is again augmented by numerous applications from physics. The final two chapters on Data Analysisand Stochastic Optimization share the two main topics as a common denominator. The book offers a number of appendices to provide the reader with more detailed information on various topics discussed in the main part. Nevertheless, thereader should be familiar with the most important concepts of statistics and probability theory albeit two appendices have been dedicated to provide a rudimentary discussion

Title:Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics in Multiphase Flows [electronic resource]
Author(s): Roberto Mauri
Date:2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Non-equilibrium thermodynamics is a general framework that allows the macroscopic description of irreversible processes. This book introduces non-equilibrium thermodynamics and its applications to the rheology of multiphaseflows. The subject is relev ant to graduate students in chemical and mechanical engineering, physics and material science. This book is divided into two parts. The first part presents the theory of non-equilibrium thermodynamics,reviewing its essential features and showing, when pos sible, some applications. The second part of this book deals with how the general theory can be applied to model multiphase flows and, in particular, how to determine theirconstitutive relations. Each chapter contains problems at the end, the solutions of which are given at the end of the book. No prior knowledge of statistical mechanics is required the necessary prerequisites are elements of transportphenomena and on thermodynamics. The style of the book is mathematical, but nonetheless it remains very r eadable and anchored in the physical world rather than becoming too abstract. Though it is up-to-date and includes recentimportant developments, there is a lot of classical material in the book, albeit presented with unprecedented clarity and coherence. T he first six chapters are actually a very good introduction to the theory underlying many phenomenain soft matter physics, beyond the focus on flow and transport of the later chapters of the book.

Title:Recent Advances in Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy [electronic resource]
Author(s): Yuri P Kalmykov
Date:2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume considers experimental and theoretical dielectric studies of the structure and dynamics of complex systems. Complex systems constitute an almost universal class of materials including associated liquids, polymers,biomolecules, colloids, p orous materials, doped ferroelectric crystals, nanomaterials, etc. These systems are characterized by a new mesoscopic length scale, intermediate between molecular and macroscopic. The mesoscopic structuresof complex systems typically arise from fluctuati ons or competing interactions and exhibit a rich variety of static and dynamic behaviour. This growing field is interdisciplinary it complements solid state and statistical physics, andoverlaps considerably with chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, and biology. A common theme in complex systems is that while such materials are disordered on the molecular scale and homogeneous on the macroscopic scale,they usually possess a certain degree of order on an intermediate, or mesoscopic, scale due to the delicate balance of interaction and thermal effects. In the present Volume it is shown how the dielectric spectroscopy studies ofcomplex systems can be applied to determine both their structures and dynamics

Title:Optically Active Charge Traps and Chemical Defects in Semiconducting Nanocrystals Probed by Pulsed Optically Detected Magnetic Resonance [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kipp van Schooten
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Colloidal nanocrystals show much promise as an optoelectronics architecture due to facile control over electronic properties afforded by chemical control of size, shape, and heterostructure. Unfortunately, realizing practicaldevices has been forestal led by the ubiquitous presence of charge trap states which compete with band-edge excitons and result in limited device efficiencies. Little is known about the defining characteristics of these traps,making engineered strategies for their removal difficul t. This thesis outlines pulsed optically detected magnetic resonance as a powerful spectroscopy of the chemical and electronic nature of these deleterious states. Counterintuitivefor such heavy atom materials, some trap species possess very long spin cohe rence lifetimes (up to 1.6 s). This quality allows use of the trapped charge's magnetic moment as a local probe of the trap state itself and its localenvironment. Beyond state characterization, this spectroscopy can demonstrate novel effects in heterostru ctured nanocrystals, such as spatially-remote readout of spin information and the coherent control of light harvesting yield

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Thermodynamics is an essential part of chemical physics and is of fundamental importance in physics, chemistry and engineering courses. This textbook takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject and is therefore suitablefor undergraduates in al l those courses. The book is an introduction to phenomenological thermodynamics and its applications to phase transitions and chemical reactions, with some references to statistical mechanics. It strikes thebalance between the rigorousness of the Callen t ext and phenomenological approach of the Atkins text. The book is divided in three parts. The first introduces the postulates and laws of thermodynamics and complements these initialexplanations with practical examples. The second part is devoted to appli cations of thermodynamics to phase transitions in pure substances and mixtures. The third part covers thermodynamic systems in which chemical reactions takeplace. There are some sections on more advanced topics such as thermodynamic potentials, natural va riables, non-ideal mixtures and electrochemical reactions, which make this book of suitable also to post-graduate students. RobertHoyst (1963) is a professor at the Institute of Physical Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences. He specializes in statistical physics, physical chemistry, biologistics and soft matter physics. He has published 182 papers and 2 books.He presented his works at multiple universities/institutes, e.g. Harvard, MIT, University of Chicago, ESPCI-Paris, ENS-Paris, several Max Planck Ins titutes, University of Tokyo, Oxford and Cambridge. He has over 17 yearsexperience in teaching thermodynamics for undergraduate students.

Title:High Temperature Phenomena in Shock Waves [electronic resource]
Author(s): Raymond Brun
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The high temperatures generated in gases by shock waves give rise to physical and chemical phenomena such as molecular vibrational excitation, dissociation, ionization, chemical reactions and inherently related radiation. Incontinuum regime, these pr ocesses start from the wave front, so that generally the gaseous media behind shock waves may be in a thermodynamic and chemical non-equilibrium state. This book presents the state of knowledge of thesephenomena. Thus, the thermodynamic properties of high temperature gases, including the plasma state are described, as well as the kinetics of the various chemical phenomena cited above. Numerous results of measurement and computationof vibrational relaxation times, dissociation and reaction rate constants a re given, and various ionization and radiative mechanisms and processes are presented. The coupling between these different phenomena is taken into account aswell as their interaction with the flow-field. Particular points such as the case of rarefied flo ws and the inside of the shock wave itself are also examined. Examples of specific non-equilibrium flows are given, generallycorresponding to those encountered during spatial missions or in shock tube experiments

This book presents these fields as a conversation between the theory of mathematics and computer science and casestudies demonstrating e ngineering and management. Most of all, the case studies illustrate what may reasonably be expected from an optimization project in a commercial enterprise. While many other books treat some of the aspects ofthis book, it is practical and may be used as a manual for conducting an optimization project. This book will not make its reader into a mathematician but it will help him to improve his plant. The book requires no mathematical ortechnical background beyond a good high school training all else is addr essed within. It is aimed at managers or engineers of industrial facilities and is also suitable for university students and their professors as an illustrationof how academic material may be used in real life. The book includes 19 case studies that were conducted in real plants. They include chemical plants, fossil power plants, wind power plants, nuclear power plants, oil refineries, oilproduction plants, injection molding fascilities and retail industry shops. All case studies were conducted by the aut hor in cooperation and co-authorship with some of the leading industrial enterprises including RWE, Vattenfall, EDF,PetroChina, Vestolit, Sasol, and Hella

Title:Nanophotonic Fabrication [electronic resource] : Self-Assembly and Deposition Techniques
Author(s): Takashi Yatsui
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nanophotonics, a novel optical technology, utilizes the local interaction between nanometric particles via optical near fields. The optical near fields are the elementary surface excitations on nanometric particles, i.e. dressedphotons that carry mat erial energy. Of the variety of qualitative innovations in optical technology realized by nanophotonics, this books focuses on fabrication. To fabricate nano-scale photonic devices with nanometer-scalecontrollability in size and position, we developed a s elf-assembly method for size- and position-controlled ultra-long nanodot chains using a novel effect of near-field optical desorption. A novel deposition and etching scheme undernonresonant conditions is also demonstrated and its origin is reviewed

Title:Discretization of Processes [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jean Jacod
Philip Protter
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In applications, and especially in mathematical finance, random time-dependent events are often modeled as stochastic processes. Assumptions are made about the structure of such processes, and serious researchers will want tojustify those assumptions through the use of data. As statisticians are wont to say, In God we trust all others must bring data. This book establishes the theory of how to go about estimating not just scalar parametersabout a proposed model, but also the underlying structure of the model itself. Classic statistical tools are used: the law of large numbers, and the central limit theorem.Researchers have recently developed creative and originalmethods to use these tools in sophisticated (but highly technical) ways to reveal new de tails about the underlying structure. For the first time in book form, the authors present these latest techniques, based on research from the last10 years. They include new findings. This book will be of special interest to researchers, combining the th eory of mathematical finance with its investigation using market data, and it will also prove to be useful in a broad rangeof applications, such as to mathematical biology, chemical engineering, and physics

Title:Mixed Integer Nonlinear Programming [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jon Lee
Sven Leyffer
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Many engineering, operations, and scientific applications include a mixture of discrete and continuous decision variables and nonlinear relationships involving the decision variables that have a pronounced effect on the set offeasible and optimal sol utions. Mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problems combine the numerical difficulties of handling nonlinear functions with the challenge of optimizing in the context of nonconvex functions and discretevariables. MINLP is one of the most flexible modeling paradigms available for optimization but because its scope is so broad, in the most general cases it is hopelessly intractable. Nonetheless, an expanding body of researchers andpractitioners including chemical engineers, operations researchers, industrial engineers, mechanical engineers, economists, statisticians, computer scientists, operations managers, and mathematical programmers are interested insolving large-scale MINLP instances

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Metal-dielectric interfaces are ubiquitous in modern electronics. As advanced gigascale electronic devices continue to shrink, the stability of these interfaces is becoming an increasingly important issue that has a profoundimpact on the operational reliability of these devices. In this book, the authors present the basic science underlying the thermal and electrical stability of metal-dielectric interfaces and its relationship to the operation ofadvanced interconnect systems in gigascale electronics . Interface phenomena, including chemical reactions between metals and dielectrics, metallic-atom diffusion, and ion drift, are discussed based on fundamental physical and chemicalprinciples. Schematic diagrams are provided throughout the book to illustra te interface phenomena and the principles that govern them. Metal-Dielectric Interfaces in Gigascale Electronics provides a unifying approach to the diverseand sometimes contradictory test results that are reported in the literature on metal-dielectric in terfaces. The goal is to provide readers with a clear account of the relationship between interface science and its applications ininterconnect structures. The material presented here will also be of interest to those engaged in field-effect transistor an d memristor device research, as well as university researchers and industrial scientists working in the areasof electronic materials processing, semiconductor manufacturing, memory chips, and IC design. Presents a unified approach to understanding the div erse phenomena observed at metal-dielectric interfaces Features fundamentalconsiderations in the physics and chemistry of metal-dielectric interactions Explores mechanisms of metal atom diffusion and metal ion drift in dielectrics Provides keys to underst anding reliability in gigascale electronics Focuses ona dynamic area of current research that is a foundationof future interconnect systems, memristors, and solid-state electrolyte devices P

Title:Helium Cryogenics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Steven W Van Sciver
Date:2012
Edition:2nd ed. 2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Twenty five years have elapsed since the original publication of Helium Cryogenics. During this time, a considerable amount of research and development involving helium fluids has been carried out culminating in severallarge-scale projects. Furthermo re, the field has matured through these efforts so that there is now a broad engineering base to assist the development of future projects. Helium Cryogenics, 2nd edition brings these advances in heliumcryogenics together in an updated form. As in the ori ginal edition, the author's approach is to survey the field of cryogenics with emphasis on helium fluids. This approach is more specialized and fundamental than that contained inother cryogenics books, which treat the associated range of cryogenic fluids. As a result, the level of treatment is more advanced and assumes a certain knowledge of fundamental engineering and physics principles, including somequantum mechanics. The goal throughout the work is to bridge the gap between the physics and engineering aspects of helium fluids to provide a source for engineers and scientists to enhance their usefulness in low-temperature systems.Dr. Van Sciver is a Distinguished Research Professor and John H. Gorrie Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Florida State University. He is also a Program Director at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL). Dr. VanSciver joined the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and the NHMFL in 1991, initiating and teaching a graduate program in magnet and materials engineerin g and in cryogenic thermal sciences and heat transfer. He also led the NHMFLdevelopment efforts of the cryogenic systems for the NHMFL Hybrid and 900 MHz NMR superconducting magnets. Between 1997 and 2003, he served as Director of Magnet Science and Techn ology at the NHMFL. Dr. Van Sciver is a Fellow of theASME and the Cryogenic Society of America and American Editor for the journal Cryogenics. He is the 2010 recipient of the Kurt Mendelssohn Award. P
