Title:In-situ Materials Characterization [electronic resource] : Across Spatial and Temporal Scales
Author(s): Alexander Ziegler
Heinz Graafsma
Xiao Feng Zhang
Joost W.M Frenken
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The behavior of nanoscale materials can change rapidly with time either because the environment changes rapidly, or because the influence of the environment propagates quickly across the intrinsically small dimensions of nanoscalematerials. Extremely fast time resolution studies using X-rays, electrons and neutrons are of very high interest to many researchers and is a fast-evolving and interesting field for the study of dynamic processes. Therefore, in situstructural characterization and measurement s of structure-property relationships covering several decades of length and time scales (from atoms to millimeters and femtoseconds to hours) with high spatial and temporal resolutions arecrucially important to understand the synthesis and behavior of mu ltidimensional materials. The techniques described in this book will permit access to the real-time dynamics of materials, surface processes, and chemical and biologicalreactions at various time scales. This book provides an interdisciplinary reference fo r research using in situ techniques to capture the real-time structural and property responses of materials to surrounding fields using electron,optical, and x-ray microscopies (e.g., scanning, transmission, and low-energy electron microscopy, and scannin g probe microscopy), or in the scattering realm with x-ray, neutron and electron diffraction

Title:The Influence of Demographic Stochasticity on Population Dynamics [electronic resource] : A Mathematical Study of Noise-Induced Bistable States and Stochastic Patterns
Author(s): Tommaso Biancalani
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The dynamics of population systems cannot be understood within the framework of ordinary differential equations, which assume that the number of interacting agents is infinite. With recent advances in ecology, biochemistry andgenetics it is becoming increasingly clear that real systems are in fact subject to a great deal of noise. Relevant examples include social insects competing for resources, molecules undergoing chemical reactions in a cell and a poolof genomes subject to evolution.When the popul ation size is small, novel macroscopic phenomena can arise, which can be analyzed using the theory of stochastic processes. This thesis is centered on two unsolved problems in populationdynamics: the symmetry breaking observed in foraging populations, and the robustness of spatial patterns. We argue that these problems can be resolved with the help of two novel concepts: noise-induced bistable states and stochasticpatterns

Author(s): Moiss Santilln
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book brings theories in nonlinear dynamics, stochastic processes, irreversible thermodynamics, physical chemistry, and biochemistry together in an introductory but formal and comprehensive manner. Coupled with examples, thetheories are developed stepwise, starting with the simplest concepts and building upon them into a more general framework. Furthermore, each new mathematical derivation is immediately applied to one or more biological systems. Thelast chapters focus on applying mathematical an d physical techniques to study systems such as: gene regulatory networks and ion channels. The target audience of this book are mainly final year undergraduate and graduate students with asolid mathematical background (physicists, mathematicians, and engi neers), as well as with basic notions of biochemistry and cellular biology. This book can also be useful to students with a biological background who are interestedin mathematical modeling, and have a working knowledge of calculus, differential equations, and a basic understanding of probability theory

Title:Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Peter Buchholz
Jan Kriege
Iryna Felko
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published

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:Ultrafast Phenomena in Molecular Sciences [electronic resource] : Femtosecond Physics and Chemistry
Author(s): Rebeca Nalda
Luis Baares
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents the latest developments in Femtosecond Chemistry and Physics for the study of ultrafast photo-induced molecular processes.Molecular systems, from the simplest H2 molecule to polymers or biologicalmacromolecules, constitute central objects of interest for Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and despite the broad range of phenomena that they exhibit, they share some common behaviors. One of the most significant of those is that manyof the processes involving chemical transformation (nucl ear reorganization, bond breaking, bond making) take place in an extraordinarily short time, in or around the femtosecond temporal scale (1 fs = 10-15 s). A number of experimentalapproaches - very particularly the developments in the generation and manipu lation of ultrashort laser pulses - coupled with theoretical progress, provide the ultrafast scientist with powerful tools to understand matter and itsinteraction with light, at this spatial and temporal scale. This book is an attempt to reunite some of t he state-of-the-art research that is being carried out in the field of ultrafast molecular science, from theoretical developments,through new phenomena induced by intense laser fields, to the latest techniques applied to the study of molecular dynamics

Title:Studying Complex Surface Dynamical Systems Using Helium-3 Spin-Echo Spectroscopy [electronic resource]
Author(s): Barbara A. J Lechner
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Chemical reactions and growth processes on surfaces depend on the diffusion and re-orientation of the adsorbate molecules. A fundamental understanding of the forces guiding surface motion is thus of utmost importance for theadvancement of many fields of science and technology. To date, our understanding of the principles underlying surface dynamics remains extremely limited, due to the difficulties involved in measuring these processes experimentally. Thehelium-3 spin-echo (HeSE) technique is uniquel y capable of probing such surface dynamical phenomena. The present thesis extends the field of application of HeSE from atomic and small molecular systems to more complex systems.Improvements to the supersonic helium beam source, a key component of the sp ectrometer, as well as a detailed investigation of a range of five-membered aromatic adsorbate species are presented. The thesis provides a comprehensivedescription of many aspects of the HeSE method - instrumentation, measurement and data analysis - and as such offers a valuable introduction for newcomers to the field

Title:Towards Autonomous Soft Matter Systems [electronic resource] : Experiments on Membranes and Active Emulsions
Author(s): Shashi Thutupalli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on the assembly, organization and resultant collective dynamics of soft matter systems maintained away from equilibrium byan energy flux. Living matter is the ultimate example of such systems, which arecomprised of different constit uents on very different scales (ions, nucleic acids, proteins, cells). The result of their diverse interactions, maintained using the energy from physiological processes, is a fantastically well-organizedand dynamic whole. This work describes results from minimal, biomimetic systems and primarily investigates membranes and active emulsions, as well as key aspects of both soft matter and non-equilibrium phenomena. It isshown thatthese minimal reconstitutions are already capable of a range of complex behavi our such as nonlinear electric responses, chemical communication and locomotion. These studies will bring us closer to a fundamental understanding of complexsystems by reconstituting key aspects of their form and function in simple model systems. Further, they may also serve as the first technological steps towards artificial soft functional matter

Title:Elliptic Partial Differential Equations [electronic resource] : Volume 2: Reaction-Diffusion Equations
Author(s): Vitaly Volpert
Date:2014
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:If we had to formulate in one sentence what this book is about it might be How partial differential equations can help to understand heat explosion, tumor growth or evolution of biological species. These and many otherapplications are described by re action-diffusion equations. The theory of reaction-diffusion equations appeared in the first half of the last century. In the present time, it is widely used in population dynamics, chemical physics,biomedical modelling. The purpose of this book is to pre sent the mathematical theory of reaction-diffusion equations in the context of their numerous applications. We will go from the general mathematical theory to specific equationsand then to their applications. Mathematical anaylsis of reaction-diffusion eq uations will be based on the theory of Fredholm operators presented in the first volume. Existence, stability and bifurcations of solutions will be studiedfor bounded domains and in the case of travelling waves. The classical theory of reaction-diffusion equations and new topics such as nonlocal equations and multi-scale models in biology will be considered

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.

Note:The Early Evolution of the Atmospheres of Terrestrial Planets presents the main processes participating in the atmospheric evolution of terrestrial planets. A group of experts in the different fields provide an update ofour current knowledge on this topic. Several papers in this book discuss the key role of nitrogen in the atmospheric evolution of terrestrial planets.The earliest setting and evolution of planetary atmospheres of terrestrial planetsis directly associated with accretion, chemical diffe rentiation, outgassing, stochastic impacts, and extremely high energy fluxes from their host stars. This book provides an overview of the present knowledge of the initial atmosphericcomposition of the terrestrial planets. Additionally it includes some pap ers about the current exoplanet discoveries and provides additional clues to our understanding of Earths transition from a hot accretionary phase into ahabitable world. All papers included were reviewed by experts in their respective fields. We are living in an epoch of important exoplanet discoveries, but current properties of these exoplanets do not match our scientific predictionsusing standard terrestrial planet models. This book deals with the main physio-chemical signatures and processes that could be useful to better understand the formation of rocky planets

Note:Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Tranpsort develops basic and advanced concepts of plasma transport to the modern treatment of the Chapman-Enskog method for the solution of the Boltzmann transport equation. Thebook invites the reader t o consider actual problems of the transport of thermal plasmas with particular attention to the derivation of diffusion- and viscosity-type transport cross sections, stressing the role of resonantcharge-exchange processes in affecting the diffusion-type c ollision calculation of viscosity-type collision integrals. A wide range of topics is then discussed including (1) the effect of non-equilibrium vibrational distributions onthe transport of vibrational energy, (2) the role of electronically excited states in the transport properties of thermal plasmas, (3) the dependence of transport properties on the multitude of Saha equations for multi-temperatureplasmas, and (4) the effect of the magnetic field on transport properties. Throughout the book, worked exam ples are provided to clarify concepts and mathematical approaches. This book is the second of a series of three published by theBari group on fundamental aspects of plasma chemical physics. The first book, Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: T hermodynamics, is dedicated to plasma thermodynamics and the third, Fundamental Aspects of Plasma ChemicalPhysics: Kinetics, deals with plasma kinetics

Note:Complexity occurs in biological and synthetic systems alike. This general phenomenon has been addressed in recent publications by investigators in disciplines ranging from chemistry and biology to psychology and philosophy.Studies of complexity for m olecular scientists have focussed on breaking symmetry, dissipative processes, and emergence. Investigators in the social and medical sciences have focused on neurophenomenology, cognitive approaches andself-consciousness. Complexity in both structure and function is inherent in many scientific disciplines of current significance and also in technologies of current importance that are rapidly evolving to address global societalneeds. Several of these multifaceted scientific disciplines are addressed in th is book including complexity from the general and philosophical perspective, magnetic phenomena, control of self assembly and function in largemulticomponent clusters, application of theory to probe structure and mechanism in highly complex molecular spec ies, and the design of multifunctional nanoscale molecules of value in decontamination and solar fuels research. Eachchapter is both a review and addresses some ongoing challenges, thus each should provide a good preparation for further work in these high ly active areas of research endeavour.

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.

Note:This long-awaited second edition of the classical textbook on Stellar Structure and Evolution by Kippenhahn and Weigert is a thoroughly revised version of the original text. Taking into account modern observational constraints aswell as additional ph ysical effects such as mass loss and diffusion, Achim Weiss and Rudolf Kippenhahn have succeeded in bringing the book up to the state-of-the-art with respect to both the presentation of stellar physics and thepresentation and interpretation of current sop histicated stellar models. The well-received and proven pedagogical approach of the first edition has been retained. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of thestellar interior and the underlying fundamental processes and parameters. The models developed to explain the stability, dynamics and evolution of the stars are presented and great care is taken to detail the various stages in astars life. Just as the first edition, which remained a standard work for more than 20 years after i ts first publication, the second edition will be of lasting value not only for students but also for active researchers in astronomyand astrophysics

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

Note:The aim of this book is to present highly accurate and extensive theoretical Atomic data and to give a survey of selected calculational methods for atomic physics, used to obtain these data. The book presents the results ofcalculations of cross secti ons and probabilities of a broad variety of atomic processes with participation of photons and electrons, namely on photoabsorption, electron scattering and accompanying effects. Included are data forphotoabsorption and electron scattering cross-sections and probabilities of vacancy decay formed for a large number of atoms and ions. Attention is also given to photoionization and vacancy decay in endohedrals and to positron-atomscattering. The book is richly illustrated. The methods used are one-electron H artree-Fock and the technique of Feynman diagrams that permits to include many-electron correlations. This is done in the frames of the Random Phaseapproximation with exchange and the many-body perturbation theory. Newly obtained and previously collected atomic data are presented. The atomic data are useful for investigating the electronic structure and physical processes insolids and liquids, molecules and clusters, astronomical objects, solar and planet atmospheres and atomic nucleus. Deep understanding of chemical reactions and processes is reached by deep and accurate knowledge of atomic structure andprocesses with participation of atoms. This book is useful for theorists performing research in different domains of contemporary physics, chemistry and biology, technologists working on production of new materials and forexperimentalists performing research in the field of photon and electron interaction with atoms, molecules, solid bodies and liquids

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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The term chemical evolution of galaxies refers to the evolution of abundances of chemical species in galaxies, which is due to nuclear processes occurring in stars and to gas flows into and out of galaxies. This book dealswith the chemical evolution of galaxies of all morphological types (ellipticals, spirals and irregulars) and stresses the importance of the star formation histories in determining the properties of stellar populations in differentgalaxies. The topic is approached in a didactical and logical manner via galaxy evolution models which are compared with observational results obtained in the last two decades: The reader is given an introduction to the concept ofchemical abundances and learns about the main stellar populations in our Galax y as well as about the classification of galaxy types and their main observables. In the core of the book, the construction and solution of chemicalevolution models are discussed in detail, followed by descriptions and interpretations of observations of t he chemical evolution of the Milky Way, spheroidal galaxies, irregular galaxies and of cosmic chemical evolution. The aim ofthis book is to provide an introduction to students as well as to amend our present ideas in research the book also summarizes the efforts made by authors in the past several years in order to further future research in the field

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Advances on Fractional Inequalities use primarily the Caputo fractional derivative, as the most important in applications, and presents the first fractional differentiation inequalities of Opial type which involves thebalanced fractional derivatives. The book continues with right and mixed fractional differentiation Ostrowski inequalities in the univariate and multivariate cases. Next the right and left, as well as mixed, Landau fractionaldifferentiation inequalities in the univariate and multivariat e cases are illustrated. Throughout the book many applications are given. Fractional differentiation inequalities are by themselves an important and great mathematical topicfor research. Furthermore they have many applications, the most important ones are in establishing uniqueness of solution in fractional differential equations and systems and in fractional partial differential equations. Also theyprovide upper bounds to the solutions of the above equations. Fractional Calculus has emerged as very usefu l over the last forty years due to its many applications in almost all applied sciences. This is currently seen in applicationsin acoustic wave propagation in inhomogeneous porous material, diffusive transport, fluid flow, dynamical processes in self-simi lar structures, dynamics of earthquakes, optics, geology, viscoelastic materials, bio-sciences,bioengineering, medicine, economics, probability and statistics, astrophysics, chemical engineering, physics, splines, tomography, fluid mechanics, electromagne tic waves, nonlinear control, signal processing, control of powerelectronic, converters, chaotic dynamics, polymer science, proteins, polymer physics, electrochemistry, statistical physics, rheology, thermodynamics, neural networks, etc. Almost all fields of research in science and engineering usefractional calculus in order to describe results.

Title:Semi-Discretization for Time-Delay Systems [electronic resource] : Stability and Engineering Applications

Gbor Stpn
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book presents the recently introduced and already widely cited semi-discretization method for the stability analysis of delayed dynamical systems with parametric excitation. Delay-differential equations often come up indifferent fields of enginee ring, such as feedback control systems, machine tool vibrations, and balancing/stabilization with reflex delay. The behavior of such systems is often counter-intuitive and closed form analytical formulas canrarely be given even for the linear stability co nditions. The same holds for parametrically excited systems. If parametric excitation is coupled with the delay effect, then the governing equation is a delay-differential equation withtime-periodic coefficients, and the stability properties are even more intriguing. The semi-discretization method is a simple but efficient method that is based on the discretization with respect to the delayed term and the periodiccoefficients only. This discretization results in a system of ordinary differential equations that can be solved using standard techniques, which are part of basic engineering curriculums. The method can effectively be used toconstruct stability charts in the space of system parameters. These charts provide a useful tool for engineers, since they present an overview on the effects of system parameters on the local dynamics of the system. The book presentsthe application of the method to different engineering problems, such as dynamics of turning and milling processes with constant and with varyin g spindle speeds, stick balancing with reflex delay, force control processes in thepresence of feedback delay, and stabilization using time-periodic control gains. The book is designed for graduate and PhD students as well as researchers working in the fi eld of delayed dynamical systems with application tomechanical, electrical and chemical engineering, control theory, biomechanics, population dynamics, neuro-physiology, and climate research

Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book brings to light peculiarities of the formation of critical regimes of two-phase flows with a polydisperse solid phase. A definition of entropy is formulated on the basis of statistical analysis of these peculiarities.The physical meaning of entropy and its correlation with other parameters determining two-phase flows are clearly defined. The interrelations and main differences between this entropy and the thermodynamic one are revealed. The mainregularities of two-phase flows both in critic al and in other regimes are established using the notion of entropy. This parameter serves as a basis for a deeper insight into the physics of the process and for the development ofexhaustive techniques of mass exchange estimation in such flows. The book is intended for graduate and postgraduate students of engineering studying two-phase flows, and to scientists and engineers engaged in specific problems of suchfields as chemical technology, mineral dressing, modern ceramics, microelectronics, pharmacolog y, power engineering, thermal engineering, etc. using flows with solid particles in their respective production methods

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents the first comprehensive compilation and review of the extensive body of experimental and theoretical material on solar neutrons and related phenomena published in the scientific literature over the last sixtyyears. Phenomena relate d to solar neutrons are more specifically: the decay products of solar neutrons solar gamma rays generated in processes like nuclear reactions between solar energetic charged particles and matter of the solaratmosphere, as well as by the capture of solar neutrons by hydrogen atoms in the solar atmosphere the propagation of solar neutrons, solar gamma rays and other secondary particles through the solar photosphere, chromosphere and corona,as well as through interplanetary space and through the Earth's atm osphere. Models and simulations of particle acceleration, interactions, and propagation processes show that observations of solar neutrons and gamma rays in space andin the Earth's atmosphere yield essential and unique information on the source function o f energetic solar particles, as well as on the chemical composition and density distribution of plasma in the solar atmosphere. The resultsdescribed in the book may also be useful for astrophysical studies of other stars and different astrophysical object s, as well as for space weather problems. The book will serve as a reference work for researchers and students in solarphysics, plasma, neutron, and gamma ray physics, as well as in cosmic ray physics, space science, geophysics and those researching space weather problems

Note:Extreme Photonics & Applications arises from the 2008 NATO Advanced Study Institute in Laser Control & Monitoring in New Materials, Biomedicine, Environment, Security and Defense. Leading experts in the manipulation of lightoffered by recent advances in laser physics and nanoscience were invited to give lectures in their fields of expertise and participate in discussions on current research, applications and new directions. The sum of their contributionsto this book is a primer for the state of scien tific knowledge and the issues within the subject of photonics taken to the extreme frontiers: molding light at the ultra-finest scales, which represents the beginning of the end tolimitations in optical science for the benefit of 21st Century technologic al societies. Laser light is an exquisite tool for physical and chemical research. Physicists have recently developed pulsed lasers with such short durationsthat one laser shot takes the time of one molecular vibration or one electron rotation in an atom, which makes it possible to observe their internal electronic structure, thereby enabling the study of physical processes and newchemical reactions. In parallel, advances in micro- and nano-structured photonic materials allow the precise manipulation of l ight on its natural scale of a wavelength. Photonic crystals, plasmons and related metamaterials - composedof subwavelength nanostructures - permit the manipulation of their dispersive properties and have allowed the experimental confirmation of bizarre n ew effects such as slow light and negative refraction. These advances open a vista on anew era in which it is possible to build lasers and engineer materials to control and use photons as precisely as it is already possible to do with electrons. http://ww w.photonics.uottawa.ca/nato-asi-2008/

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Stochastic Energetics by now commonly designates the emerging field that bridges the gap between stochastic dynamical processes and thermodynamics. Triggered by the vast improvements in spatio-temporal resolution innanotechnology, stochastic energeti cs develops a framework for quantifying individual realizations of a stochastic process on the mesoscopic scale of thermal fluctuations. This is needed to answer such novel questions as: Can one coola drop of water by agitating an immersed nano-particle? How does heat flow if a Brownian particle pulls a polymer chain? Can one measure the free-energy of a system through a single realization of the associated stochastic process?This book will take the reader gradually from the basics to the applications: Pa rt I provides the necessary background from stochastic dynamics (Langevin, master equation), Part II introduces how stochastic energetics describes suchbasic notions as heat and work on the mesoscopic scale, Part III details several applications, such as control and detection processes, as well as free-energy transducers. It aims in particular at researchers and graduate studentsworking in the fields of nanoscience and technology

Title:The Dynamics of Heat [electronic resource] A Unified Approach to Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer
Author(s): Hans U Fuchs
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on courses for students of science, engineering, and systems science at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences at Winterthur, this text approaches the fundamentals of thermodynamics from the point of view of continuumphysics. By describing p hysical processes in terms of the flow and balance of physical quantities, the author achieves a unified approach to hydraulics, electricity, mechanics and thermodynamics. In this way, it becomes clear thatentropy is the fundamental property that is trans ported in thermal processes (i.e., heat), and that temperature is the corresponding potential. The resulting theory of the creation, flow, and balance of entropy provides the foundationof a dynamical theory of heat. This extensively revised and updated se cond edition includes new material on dynamical chemical processes, thermoelectricity, and explicit dynamical modeling of thermal and chemical processes. To make thebook more useful for courses on thermodynamics and physical chemistry at different levels, coverage of topics is divided into introductory and more advanced and formal treatments. Previous knowledge of thermodynamics is not required,but the reader should be familiar with basic electricity, mechanics, and chemistry and should have some knowledg e of elementary calculus. The special feature of the first edition the integration of thermodynamics, heat transfer,and chemical processes has beenmaintained and strengthened. Key Features: Presents a unified approach to thermodynamics and heat transpor t in fundamental physical and chemical processes First revised edition of a successfultext/reference in fourteen years More than 25 percent new material Provides worked examples, questions, and problem sets for use as a teaching text or for self testing I ncludes many system dynamics models of laboratory experiments

Title:Practical Bifurcation and Stability Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Rdiger Seydel
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book covers the central role that bifurcations play in nonlinear phenomena, explaining mechanisms of how stability is gained or lost. It emphasizes practical and computational methods for analyzing dynamical systems. A widerange of phenomena bet ween equilibrium and chaos is explained and illustrated by examples from science and engineering. The book is a practical guide for performing parameter studies and includes exercises. Combining an introduction onthe textbook level with an exposition of c omputational methods, this book addresses the mathematical needs of scientists and engineers. It should be of interest to those in a wide variety of disciplines, including physics, mechanicalengineering, electrical engineering, chemistry and chemical engi neering, biology, and medicine. Both graduate students (in courses on dynamical systems, stability analysis, differential equations, and chaos) and professionals will beable to use the book equally well. The introduction avoids mathematical formalism, and the only required background is calculus. In the third edition there is a chapter on applications and extensions of standard ODE approaches, forexample, to delay equations, to differential-algebraic equations, and to reaction-diffusion problems. Addition al material is inserted, including the topics deterministic risk, pattern formation, and control of chaos, and many furtherreferences. Review of Earlier Edition: The outcome is impressive. The book is beautifully written in a style that seeks not only to develop the subject matter but also to expose the thought processes behind the mathematics.Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society

Note:This new Fifth Edition of Principles of Lasers incorporates corrections to the previous edition. The texts essential mission remains the same: to provide a wide-ranging yet unified description of laser behavior, physics,technology, and current applic ations. Dr. Svelto emphasizes the physical rather than the mathematical aspects of lasers, and presents the subject in the simplest terms compatible with a correct physical understanding. Praise forearlier editions: Professor Svelto is himself a longtime laser pioneer and his text shows the breadth of his broad acquaintance with all aspects of the field Anyone mastering the contents of this book will be well prepared tounderstand advanced treatises and research papers in laser science and technology. (Ar thur L. Schawlow, 1981 Nobel Laureate in Physics) Already well established as a self-contained introduction to the physics and technology oflasers Professor Sveltos book, in this lucid translation by David Hanna, can be strongly recommended for self-stud y or teaching at the final-year undergraduate or first-year post-graduate levels.

Title:IUTAM Symposium on Progress in the Theory and Numerics of Configurational Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): P Steinmann
Date:2009
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Configurational mechanics has attracted much attention from various research fields over the recent years/decades and has developed into a versatile tool that can be applied to a variety of problems. Since Eshelby's seminal worksa general notion of c onfigurational mechanics has evolved and has successfully been applied to many problems involving various types of defects in continuous media. The most prominent application is the use of configurational forces infracture mechanics. However, as configura tional mechanics is related to arbitrary material inhomogeneities it has also very successfully been applied to many materials science and engineering problems such as phase transitions andinelastic deformations. Also, the modeling of materials with micro -structure evolution is an important field, in which configurational mechanics can provide a better understanding of processes going on within the material. Besidesthese mechanical, physical, and chemical applications, ideas from configurational mechanics are now increasingly applied within computational mechanics. In this regard, in particular the combination of configurational mechanics and thefinite element method has a notable impact on computational mechanics. New methods based on configurational mec hanics are developing in computational fracture mechanics, structural optimization and adaptivity. These methods include,for example, r- and h-adaptive methods for mesh optimization and refinement. The IUTAM Symposium on Progress in the Theory and Numeric s of Configurational Mechanics that took place at the University of Erlangen/Nuremberg, Germany,from October 20th to 24th, 2008, shed light on the most recent state of affairs in configurational mechanics. This proceedings volume brings together a number of peer reviewed papers that were presented at the symposium
