Note:Design happens everywhere, whether in animate objects (e.g., dendritic lung structures, bacterial colonies, and corals), inanimate patterns (river basins, beach slope, and dendritic crystals), social dynamics (pedestrian trafficflows), or engineered systems (heat dissipation in electronic circuitry). This design in nature often takes on remarkably similar patterns, which can be explained under one unifying Constructal Law. This book explores theunifying power of the Constructal Law and its applicatio ns in all domains of design generation and evolution, ranging from biology and geophysics to globalization, energy, sustainability, and security. The Constructal Law accountsfor the universal tendency of flow systems to morph into evolving configurations that provide greater and easier access over time. The Constructal Law resolves the many and contradictory ad hoc statements of optimality, enddesign, and destiny in nature, such as minimum and maximum entropy production and minimum and maximum flow resist ance, and also explains the designs that are observed and copied in biomimetics. Constructal Law and the UnifyingPrinciple of Design covers the fundamentals of Constructal Theory and Design, as well as presenting a variety of state-of-the-art applications . Experts from the biological, physical and social sciences demonstrate the unification ofall design phenomena in nature, and apply this knowledge to novel designs in modern engineering, such as vascularization for self-healing and self-cooling materials for aircraft, and tree fins and cavities for heat transferenhancement. Captures a world-wide movement toward design as science Defines the place of the Constructal Law in physics and thermodynamics Features an interdisciplinaryapproach that spans phys ics, biology, engineering and the social sciences Demonstrates that a single law of physics governs all the pheno

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.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is devoted to the theme of crystallographic studies at high pressure, with emphasis on the phenomena characteristic to the compressed state of matter, as well as experimental and theoretical techniques used to studythese phenomena. As a the rmodynamic parameter, pressure is remarkable in many ways. In the visible universe its value spans over sixty orders of magnitude, from the non-equilibrium pressure of hydrogen in intergalactic space, to thekind of pressure encountered within neutron star s. In the laboratory, it provides the unique possibility to control the structure and properties of materials, to dramatically alter electronic properties, and to break existing, or formnew chemical bonds. This agenda naturally encompasses elements of phy sics (properties, structure and transformations), chemistry (reactions, transport), materials science (new materials) and engineering (mechanical properties) inaddition it has direct applications and implications for geology (minerals in deep Earth enviro nments), planetary sciences, biology and medicine

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book introduces materials scientists and designers, physicists and chemists to the properties of materials that can be modified by ion irradiation or implantation. These techniques can help design new materials or to testmodified properties nove l applications already show that ion-beam techniques are complementary to others, yielding previously unattainable properties. Also, ion-beam interactions modify materials at the nanoscale, avoiding the oftendetrimental results of lithographic or chemical techniques. Here, the effects are related to better-known quasi-equilibrium thermodynamics, and the consequences to materials are discussed with concepts that are familiar to materialsscience. Examples addressed concern semiconductor physics, crystal and nanocluster growth, optics, magnetism, and applications to geology and biology

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is dedicated to Olivier Pironneau. For more than 250 years partial differential equations have been clearly the most important tool available to mankind in order to understand a large variety of phenomena, natural atfirst and then those ori ginating from human activity and technological development. Mechanics, physics and their engineering applications were the first to benefit from the impact of partial differential equations on modeling anddesign, but a little less than a century ago the S chrdinger equation was the key opening the door to the application of partial differential equations to quantum chemistry, for small atomic and molecular systems at first, but thenfor systems of fast growing complexity. Mathematical modeling methods based on partial differential equations form an important part of contemporary science and are widely used in engineering and scientific applications. In this bookseveral experts in this field present their latest results and discuss trends in the numerical an alysis of partial differential equations. The first part is devoted to discontinuous Galerkin and mixed finite element methods, bothmethodologies of fast growing popularity. They are applied to a variety of linear and nonlinear problems, including the Sto kes problem from fluid mechanics and fully nonlinear elliptic equations of the Monge-Ampre type. Numericalmethods for linear and nonlinear hyperbolic problems are discussed in the second part. The third part is concerned with domain decomposition methods, with applications to scattering problems for wave models and to electronic structurecomputations. The next part is devoted to the numerical simulation of problems in fluid mechanics that involve free surfaces and moving boundaries. The finite difference solution of a problem from spectral geometry has also beenincluded in this part. Inverse problems are known to be efficient models used in geology, medicine, mechanics and many other natural science

Title:Permutation, Parametric and Bootstrap Tests of Hypotheses [electronic resource]
Author(s): Phillip Good
Date:2005
Edition:Third Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text will equip both practitioners and theorists with the necessary background in testing hypothesis and decision theory to enable innumerable practical applications of statistics. Its intuitive and informal style makes itsuitable as a text for both students and researchers. It can serve as the basis a one- or two-semester graduate course as well as a standard handbook of statistical procedures for the practitioners desk. Parametric, permutation, andbootstrap procedures for testing hypotheses ar e developed side by side. The emphasis on distribution-free permutation procedures will enable workers in applied fields to use the most powerful statistic for their applications andsatisfy regulatory agency demands for methods that yield exact significan ce levels, not approximations. Algebra and an understanding of discrete probability will take the reader through all but the appendix, which utilizes probabilitymeasures in its proofs. The revised and expanded text of the 3rd edition includes many more re al-world illustrations from biology, business, clinical trials, economics, geology, law, medicine, social science and engineering along withtwice the number of exercises. Real-world problems of missing and censored data, multiple comparisons, nonresponder s, after-the-fact covariates, and outliers are dealt with at length. New sections are added on sequential analysis andmultivariate analysis plus a chapter on the exact analysis of multi-factor designs based on the recently developed theory of synchronous permutations. The book's main features include: Detailed consideration of one-, two-, and k-sampletests, contingency tables, clinical trials, cluster analysis, multiple comparisons, multivariate analysis, and repeated measures Numerous practical applicati ons in archeology, biology, business, climatology, clinical trials, economics,education, engineering, geology, law, medicine, and the social sciences Valuable techniques for reducing computation time
