Title:Three Dimensional Creativity [electronic resource] : Three Navigations to Extend our Thoughts
Author(s): Kwang Hyung Lee
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Is creativity something that we are simply born with and cannot hone with effort? Some say that creativity cannot be cultivated. Is it true? In general, our thinking sticks to reality unless there is any external stimulation. Withour thinking fixed o n a certain situation, it becomes difficult to come up with a fresh idea. In this regard, three questions are suggested: (1) Question of Time: When a problem arises, question yourself on a time axis first of all.How would the matter be handled 10 or 20 ye ars from now? (2) Question of Space: Ask yourself some questions on its spatial elements. How would the matter be handled in Saudi Arabia or in China? (3) Question of Field: Apply the givenproblem in a variety of fields. How would the matter be handled in the field of music or electronic engineering? The three questions suggested here are given on the three axes: time, space, and field, and this book deals withtheoretical and practical aspects on the topics. In this way it is a unique book about the syste matic method of developing creativity, which will have appeal to researchers and students in multidisciplinary fields from neuroscience tophysics, and engineering and computer science, as well as a general public

Title:Unsteady Computational Fluid Dynamics in Aeronautics [electronic resource]
Author(s): P.G Tucker
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The field of Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and hybrids is a vibrant research area. This book runs through all the potential unsteady modelling fidelity ranges, from low-order to LES. The latter is probably the highest fidelity forpractical aerospace sy stems modelling. Cutting edge new frontiers are defined. One example of a pressing environmental concern is noise. For the accurate prediction of this, unsteady modelling is needed. Hence computationalaeroacoustics is explored. It is also emerging that th ere is a critical need for coupled simulations. Hence, this area is also considered and the tensions of utilizing such simulations with the already expensive LES. This work hasrelevance to the general field of CFD and LES and to a wide variety of non-aero space aerodynamic systems (e.g. cars, submarines, ships, electronics, buildings). Topics treated include unsteady flow techniques LES and hybrids generalnumerical methods computational aeroacoustics computational aeroelasticity coupled simulations and tur bulence and its modelling (LES, RANS, transition, VLES, URANS). The volume concludes by pointing forward to future horizons and inparticular the industrial use of LES. The writing style is accessible and useful to both academics and industrial practitione rs. From the reviews: Tucker's volume provides a very welcome, concise discussion of current capabilitiesfor simulating and modellng unsteady aerodynamic flows. It covers the various possible numerical techniques in good, clear detail and presents a very wide range of practical applications beautifully illustrated in many cases. Thisbook thus provides a valuable text for practicing engineers, a rich source of background information for students and those new to this area of Research & Development, and an excellent state-of-the-art review for others.

Title:International Conference on Theory and Application in Nonlinear Dynamics (ICAND 2012) [electronic resource]
Author(s): Visarath In
Antonio Palacios
Patrick Longhini
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:A collection of different lectures presented by experts in the field of nonlinear science provides the reader with contemporary, cutting-edge, research works that bridge the gap between theory and device realizations of nonlinearphenomena. Represent ative examples of topics covered include: chaos gates, social networks, communication, sensors, lasers, molecular motors, biomedical anomalies, stochastic resonance, nano-oscillators for generating microwavesignals and related complex systems. A common th eme among these and many other related lectures is to model, study, understand, and exploit the rich behavior exhibited by nonlinear systems to design and fabricate novel technologieswith superior characteristics. Consider, for instance, the fact that a s harks sensitivity to electric fields is 400 times more powerful than the most sophisticated electric-field sensor. In spite of significant advances in materialproperties, in many cases it remains a daunting task to duplicate the superior signal processing capabilities of most animals. Since nonlinear systems tend to be highly sensitive to perturbations when they occur near the onset of abifurcation, there are also lectures on the general topic of bifurcation theory and on how to exploit such bifurcations for signal enhancements purposes. This manuscript will appeal to researchers interested in both theory andimplementations of nonlinear systems.

Title:Integrating Routing Decisions in Public Transportation Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marie E Schmidt
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book treats three planning problems arising in public railway transportation planning: line planning, timetabling, and delay management, with the objective to minimize passengers travel time. While many optimizationapproaches simplify these prob lems by assuming that passengers route choice is independent of the solution, this book focuses on models which take into account that passengers will adapt their travel route to the implementedplanning solution. That is, a planning solution and passenger s routes are determined and evaluated simultaneously. This work is technically deep, with insightful findings regarding complexity and algorithmic approaches to publictransportation problems with integrated passenger routing. It is intended for researcher s in the fields of mathematics, computer science, or operations research, working in the field of public transportation from an optimizationstandpoint. It is also ideal for students who want to gain intuition and experience in doing complexity proofs and designing polynomial-time algorithms for network problems. The book models line planning, timetabling, and delaymanagement as combined design and routing problems on networks. In a complexity analysis, the border between NP-hard and polynomially solvable problems is illustrated. Based on that, the insights gained are used to develop solutionapproaches for the considered problems. Besides integer programming formulations, a heuristic method iterating planning and routing steps is proposed to solve the prob lems

Note:Martin Grtschel is one of the most influential mathematicians of our time. He has received numerous honors and holds a number of key positions in the international mathematical community. He celebrated his 65th birthday onSeptember 10, 2013. Martin G rtschels doctoral descendant tree 19832012, i.e., the first 30 years, features 39 children, 74 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren, a total of 139 doctoraldescendants. This book starts with a personal tribute to Martin G rtschel by the editors (Part I), a contribution by his very special predecessor Manfred Padberg on Facets and Rank of Integer Polyhedra (Part II), and thedoctoral descendant tree 19832012 (Part III). The core of this book (Part IV) contains 16 contributio ns, each of which is coauthored by at least one doctoral descendant. The sequence of the articles starts with contributions tothe theory of mathematical optimization, including polyhedral combinatorics, extended formulations, mixed-integer convex optimiza tion, superclasses of perfect graphs, efficient algorithms for subtree-telecenters, junctions in acyclicgraphs, and preemptive restricted strip covering, as well as efficient approximation of non-preemptive restricted strip covering. Combinations of new t heoretical insights with algorithms and experiments deal with network designproblems, combinatorial optimization problems with submodular objective functions, and more general mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problems. Applications include VLSI layout design, systems biology, wireless network design,mean-risk optimization, and gas network optimization. Computational studies include a semidefinite branch and cut approach for the max k-cut problem, mixed-integer nonlinear optimal control, and mixed-inte ger linear optimization forscheduling and routing of fly-in safari planes. The two closing articles are devoted to computational advances in general mixed-integer li

Note:This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlyingmathematical principl es, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational formulations of partial differential equations, but with a minimum level of advanced mathematical machinery from functionalanalysis and partial differential equations. In principle, the material should be accessible to students with only knowledge of calculus of several variables, basic partial differential equations, and linear algebra, as the necessaryconcepts from more advanced analysis are introduced when needed. Thro ughout the text we emphasize implementation of the involved algorithms, and have therefore mixed mathematical theory with concrete computer code using the numericalsoftware MATLAB is and its PDE-Toolbox. We have also had the ambition to cover some of the most important applications of finite elements and the basic finite element methods developed for those applications, including diffusion andtransport phenomena, solid and fluid mechanics, and also electromagnetics.

Note:This updated and revised second edition of the leading reference volume on distance metrics includes a wealth of new material that reflects advances in a field now regarded as an essential tool in many areas of pure and appliedmathematics. The publi cation of this volume coincides with intensifying research efforts into metric spaces and especially distance design for applications. Accurate metrics have become a crucial goal in computational biology, imageanalysis, speech recognition and information retrieval. Leaving aside the practical questions that arise during the selection of a good distance function, this work focuses on providing the research community with aninvaluable comprehensive listing of the main available distances. As well as provi ding standalone introductions and definitions, the encyclopedia facilitates swift cross-referencing with easily navigable bold-faced textual links tocore entries. In addition to distances themselves, the authors have collated numerous fascinating curiosit ies in their Whos Who of metrics, including distance-related notions and paradigms that enable applied mathematicians in othersectors to deploy research tools that non-specialists justly view as arcane. In expanding access to these techniques, and in many cases enriching the context of distances themselves, this peerless volume is certain to stimulate freshresearch

Note:This book provides an example of a thorough statistical treatment in space and time of ocean wave data. It is demonstrated how the flexible framework of Bayesian hierarchical space-time models can be applied to oceanographicprocesses such as signific ant wave height in order to describe dependence structures and uncertainties in the data. This monograph is a research book and it is in some sense cross-disciplinary. The methodology itself is firmly rootedin the statistical research tradition, based on probability theory and stochastic processes. However, the methodology has been applied to a problem within physical oceanography, analysing data for significant wave height, which are ofcrucial importance to ocean engineering disciplines. Indeed, the stat istical properties of significant wave height are important for the design, construction and operation of ships and other marine and coastal structures. Furthermore,the book addresses the question of whether climate change has an effect of the ocean wave climate, and if so what these effects might be. Thus, this book is an important contribution to the on-going debate on climate change, itsimplications and how to adapt to a changing climate, with a particular focus on the maritime industries and the marin e environment. This book should be of general interest to anyone with an interest in statistical modelling ofenvironmental processes, and in particular to those with a particular interest in the ocean wave climate. It is written on a level that should be understandable to everyone with a basic background in statistics or elementarymathematics, and an introduction to some basic concepts is given in appendices for the uninitiated reader. The intended readership incudes students and professionals involved in statistics, oceanography, ocean engineering,environmental research, climate sciences and risk assessment. Moreover, different stakeholders within the maritime industries such as design offices, classif

Note:The approximation of functions by linear positive operators is an important research topic in general mathematics and it also provides powerful tools to application areas suchas computer-aided geometric design, numericalanalysis, and solutions of dif ferential equations. q-Calculus is a generalization of many subjects, such as hypergeometric series, complex analysis, and particle physics. This monograph is an introduction to combining approximationtheory and q-Calculus with applications, by usingwell- known operators. The presentation is systematic and the authors include a brief summary of the notations and basicdefinitions ofq-calculus before delving into more advancedmaterial. Themany applications of q-calculus in the theory of approximation, espec ially onvariousoperators,which includes convergence of operators to functions in real and complex domain forms the gist of the book.

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.

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:This book provides a detailed discussion and commentary on the fundamentals of metrology. The fundamentals of metrology, the principles underlying the design of the SI International System of units, the theory of measurementerror, a new methodology f or estimation of measurement accuracy based on uncertainty, and methods for reduction of measured results and estimation of measurement uncertainty are all discussed from a modern point of view. The concept ofuncertainty is shown to be consistent with the classical theory of accuracy. The theory of random measurement errors is supplemented by a very general description based on the generalized normal distribution systematic instrumentalerror is described in terms of a methodology for normalizing the metro logical characteristics of measuring instruments. A new international system for assuring uniformity of measurements based on agreements between nationalmetrological institutes is discussed, in addition to the role and procedure for performance of key com parisons between national standards. The conclusion describes a new methodology for assurance of measurement accuracy (based on theprovisions contained in the ISO 5725-series standards) that is now becoming more and more common around the world. All of th e theoretical statements and calculation methods are illustrated using examples. This book will be of interestto personnel working in government metrological services (or in the metrological services of legal entities), and to specialists who use measurin g instruments or make use of measured data in their daily activities It will be useful tostudents at technical universities when studying the academic disciplines of Metrology, Standardization, and Certification Metrology and Measurement Assurance and Met rology and Measuring Instruments

Note:Sunlight profoundly influences the Earth's atmosphere and biosphere. Nature fuels the evolution of all living things, their visual systems, and the manner in which they adapt, accommodate, and habituate. Sun luminance measurementsserve as data to cal culate typical changes in the daily, monthly, and annual variability characteristics of daylight. Climate-based sky luminance patterns are used as models in predicting daylighting calculation and computer programsapplied in architecture and building desig n. Historically, daylight science and daylighting technology has prioritized photometric methods of measurements, calculation, and graphical tools aimed at predicting or evaluating thedaylighting of architectural design alternatives. However, due to a hei ghtened awareness of general health and well-being, sunlight exposure and freedom from visual discomfort while undertaking visual tasks are now equally prioritized.Therefore, in order to assure optimal environmental quality, daylighting technology must be based on sound science. Daylight Science and Daylighting Technology, by Richard Kittler, Miroslav Kocifaj, and Stanislav Darula, sketches theentire evolution of daylight science from atmospheric science through apt visual workplace psychophysics

Title:Computation of Viscous Incompressible Flows [electronic resource]
Author(s): Dochan Kwak
Cetin C Kiris
Date:2011
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph is intended as a concise and self-contained guide to practitioners and graduate students for applying approaches in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to real-world problems that require a quantification of viscousincompressible flows. In various projects related to NASA missions, the authors have gained CFD expertise over many years by developing and utilizing tools especially related to viscous incompressible flows. They are looking at CFDfrom an engineering perspective, which is esp ecially useful when working on real-world applications. From that point of view, CFD requires two major elements, namely methods/algorithm and engineering/physical modeling. As for themethods, CFD research has been performed with great successes. In terms of modeling/simulation, mission applications require a deeper understanding of CFD and flow physics, which has only been debated in technical conferences and to alimited scope. This monograph fills the gap by offering in-depth examples for students and e ngineers to get useful information on CFD for their activities. The procedural details are given with respect to particular tasks from theauthors field of research, for example simulations of liquid propellant rocket engine subsystems, turbo-pumps and the blood circulations in the human brain as well as the design of artificial heart devices. However, those examplesserve as illustrations of computational and physical challenges relevant to many other fields. Unlike other books on incompressible flow simul ations, no abstract mathematics are used in this book. Assuming some basic CFD knowledge,readers can easily transfer the insights gained from specific CFD applications in engineering to their area of interest
