Title:Dynamics of Magnetically Trapped Particles [electronic resource] : Foundations of the Physics of Radiation Belts and Space Plasmas
Author(s): Juan G Roederer
Hui Zhang
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book is a new edition of Roederers classic Dynamics of Geomagnetically Trapped Radiation, updated and considerably expanded. The main objective is to describe the dynamic properties of magnetically trapped particles inplanetary radiation belts a nd plasmas and explain the physical processes involved from the theoretical point of view. The approach is to examine in detail the orbital and adiabatic motion of individual particles in typicalconfigurations of magnetic and electric fields in the magnet osphere and, from there, derive basic features of the particles collective macroscopic behavior in general planetary environments. Emphasis is not on the whatbut on the why of particle phenomena in near-earth space, providing a solid and clear understandi ng of the principal basic physical mechanisms and dynamic processes involved. The book will also serve as an introduction to generalspace plasma physics, with abundant basic examples to illustrate and explain the physical origin of different types of plas ma current systems and their self-organizing character via the magnetic field. The ultimate aim is to help bothgraduate students and interested scientists to successfully face the theoretical and experimental challenges lying ahead in space physics in vie w of recent and upcoming satellite missions and an expected wealth of data on radiationbelts and plasmas

Title:Five Decades of Tackling Models for Stiff Fluid Dynamics Problems [electronic resource] : A Scientific Autobiography
Author(s): Radyadour Kh Zeytounian
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Rationality - as opposed to 'ad-hoc' - and asymptotics - to emphasize the fact that perturbative methods are at the core of the theory - are the two main concepts associated with the Rational Asymptotic Modeling (RAM) approach influid dynamics when t he goal is to specifically provide useful models accessible to numerical simulation via high-speed computing. This approach has contributed to a fresh understanding of Newtonian fluid flow problems and has openedup new avenues for tackling real fluid flow phenomena, which are known to lead to very difficult mathematical and numerical problems irrespective of turbulence. With the present scientific autobiography the author guides the readerthrough his somewhat non-traditional career first discovering fluid mechanics, and then devoting more than fifty years to intense work in the field. Using both personal and general historical contexts, this account will be of benefitto anyone interested in the early and contemporary developments of an important branch of theoretical and computational fluid mechanics

Title:Geomathematics: Theoretical Foundations, Applications and Future Developments [electronic resource]
Author(s): Frits Agterberg
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a wealth of geomathematical case history studies performed by the author during his career at the Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (NRCan-GSC). Several of the techniques newlydeveloped by the author and colleagues that are described in this book have become widely adopted, not only for further research by geomathematical colleagues, but by government organizations and industry worldwide. These includeWeights-of-Evidence modelling, mineral resource e stimation technology, trend surface analysis, automatic stratigraphic correlation and nonlinear geochemical exploration methods. The author has developed maximum likelihood methodologyand spline-fitting techniques for the construction of the international numerical geologic timescale. He has introduced the application of new theory of fractals and multifractals in the geostatistical evaluation of regional mineralresources and ore reserves and to study the spatial distribution of metals in rocks. The book also contains sections deemed important by the author but that have not been widely adopted because they require further research. Theseinclude the geometry of preferred orientations of contours and edge effects on maps, time series analysis of Quaternary retreating ice sheet related sedimentary data, estimation of first and last appearances of fossil taxa fromfrequency distributions of their observed first and last occurrences, tectonic reactivation along pre-existing schistosity planes in fold belts, us e of the grouped jackknife method for bias reduction in geometrical extrapolations, andnew applications of the theory of permanent, volume-independent frequency distributions

Note:Tutorials on Mssbauer Spectroscopy Since the discovery of the Mssbauer Effect many excellent books have been published for researchers and for doctoral and master level students. However, there appears to be no textbookavailable for final year bachel or students, nor for people working in industry who have received only basic courses in classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, chemistry and materials science. The challenge of thisbook is to give an introduction to Mssbauer Spectroscop y for this level. The ultimate goal of this book is to give this audience not only a scientific introduction to the technique, but also to demonstrate in an attractive way thepower of Mssbauer Spectroscopy in many fields of science, in order to create int erest among the readers in joining the community of Mssbauer spectroscopists. This is particularly important at times where in many Mssbauerlaboratories succession is at stake

Title:Wave Turbulence [electronic resource]
Author(s): Sergey Nazarenko
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Wave Turbulence refers to the statistical theory of weakly nonlinear dispersive waves. There is a wide and growing spectrum of physical applications, ranging from sea waves, to plasma waves, to superfluid turbulence, to nonlinearoptics and Bose-Einst ein condensates. Beyond the fundamentals the book thus also covers new developments such as the interaction of random waves with coherent structures (vortices, solitons, wave breaks), inverse cascades leading tocondensation and the transitions between wea k and strong turbulence, turbulence intermittency as well as finite system size effects, such as frozen turbulence, discrete wave resonances and avalanche-type energy cascades. Thisbook is an outgrow of several lectures courses held by the author and, as a result, written and structured rather as a graduate text than a monograph, with many exercises and solutions offered along the way. The present compactdescription primarily addresses students and non-specialist researchers wishing to enter and work in t his field

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This unique and encyclopedic reference work charts the evolution of the physics of shock waves and detonations from the earliest investigations into percussion and impact phenomena right up to the most recent groundbreakingresearch in the field. The history of this long and complex process is first reviewed in a general survey that encompasses everything from the earliest observations and interpretations of puzzling high-rate dynamic phenomena associatedwith natural and man-made explosions to a discu ssion of the merits of modern numerical computer simulations. The subject is then treated in more detail and in chronological order in the central section of the book, while also beingrichly illustrated in form of a picture gallery. The bibliographic inde x provides 122 short biographies of eminent researchers who have contributed to the field. Further references for biographical sources are given, and both name andsubject indices (with over 4500 and 2700 entries, respectively) are provided. This book is o f tremendous value to all who teach, research or write about the subject or, simply, are inquisitive about the people whose names appear inthe text or bibliographies.

Title:Full Meridian of Glory [electronic resource] : Perilous Adventures in the Competition to Measure the Earth
Author(s): Paul Murdin
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Paris Meridian is the name of the line running north-south through the astronomical observatory in Paris. One of the original intentions behind the founding of the Paris Observatory was to determine and measure this line. Tothat end, the French g overnment financed the Paris Academy of Sciences to do so in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries employing both astronomers people who study and measure the stars and geodesists people who studyand measure the Earth. This book is about what they di d and why. Full Meridian of Glory is the first English language presentation of this historical material in its entirety. It is an attractively written story of the scientists whocreated the Paris Meridian. They collaborated and worked together in allianc es, like scientists everywhere they also split into warring factions. They transcended national and political disputes, as scientists do now, their eyes fixedon ideals of accuracy, truth and objectivity. Yet also when their work served national interests they were sometimes less than neutral, and if their work was questioned they sometimes blindly descended into petty politics. This booktells the story of the adventures in France, in Spain, in Lapland and in Ecuador of the scientists who worked through re volution, war, rebellion, piracy, fire, shipwreck, blockade, snow, tropical heat, kidnapping, murder and turbulentlove affairs to pursue a problem of map making. They turned that practical problem into a crucial scientific test of one of the most importan t intellectual problems of their time Newtons theory of universal gravitation. Theirwork changed their own lives, affected the course of science and politics, and left its mark on the landscape, the art and the literature of history and in our own age

Title:Turbulence and Diffusion [electronic resource] : Scaling Versus Equations
Author(s): Oleg G Bakunin
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is an introduction to the multidisciplinary field of anomalous diffusion in complex systems, with emphasis on the scaling approach as opposed to techniques based on the quantitative analysis of underlying transportequations. Typical example s of such systems are turbulent plasmas, convective rolls, zonal flow systems and stochastic magnetic fields. From the more methodological point of view, the approach relies on the general use of correlationsestimates, quasilinear equations and continuous time random walk techniques. Yet, the mathematical descriptions are not meant to become a fixed set of recipes but rather develop and strengthen the reader's physical intuition andunderstanding on the underlying mechanisms involved. Most of the material stems from class-tested lectures, where graduate students where assumed to have a working knowledge of classical physics, fluid dynamics and plasma physics butotherwise no prior knowledge of the subject matter is assumed from the side of the reader

Title:Scattering from Model Nonspherical Particles [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications to Environmental Physics

Date:2007

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The scattering of electromagnetic radiation by nonspherical particles has become an increasingly important research topic over the past 20 years. Instead of handling anisotropic particles of arbitrary shape, the authors considerthe more amenable prob lem of aggregates of spherical particles. This is often a very satisfactory approach as the optical response of nonspherical particles depends more on their general symmetry and the quantity of refractive materialthan on the precise details of their shape . The book addresses a wide spectrum of applications, ranging from scattering properties of water droplets containing pollutants, atmospheric aerosols and ice crystals to the modeling of cosmicdust grains as aggregates. In this extended second edition the authors have encompassed all the new topics arising from their recent studies of cosmic dust grains. Thus many chapters were deeply revised and new chapters were added. Thenew material spans The description of the state of polarization of electromagnetic waves of general form The conservation theorems of combined systems of fields and particles The appropriate multipole expansion for waves of generalwave vector and of general state of polarization A number of new applications The effects of radiation pre ssure and radiation torque on cosmic dust grains A study of the morphology of cosmic dust grains and of the distribution andpolarization of the electromagnetic field in the interior of aggregated dust grains

Note:This new edition of Exploring the Secrets of the Aurora is based on the author's own experiences as a scientist. It describes the history of progress made in auroral science and magnetospheric physics by providing examples ofideas, controversies, str uggles, acceptance, and success. Although no general methodologies are mentioned, the hope is that the reader will learn about the history of progress in auroral science and examples of dealing with the manycontroversies. This book aims to help young scie ntific researchers learn how to persevere during periods of controversy and struggles for acceptance. In this second edition, by utilizing multiple examples, Akasofu is successful indemonstrating the importance and usefulness of Synthesis. Probably the bo ok's most valuable contribution to the history of space physics is precisely the narration of the discovery of substorms.---The book has specialfeatures.---Akasofu's coverage of the history of pre-space age solar-terrestrial relations is the most comprehe nsive among books on the subject known to me.---It is a unique mix of science, history, philosophy, and exhortation.-George Siscoe, Center for Space Physics, Boston University, Boston, MA
