Title:Viscometry for Liquids [electronic resource] : Calibration of Viscometers
Author(s): S. V Gupta
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book is written for scientists involved in the calibration of viscometers. A detailed description for stepping up procedures to establish the viscosity scale and obtaining sets of master viscometers is given in the book.Uncertainty consideration s for standard oils of known viscosity are presented. The modern viscometers based on principles of tuning fork, ultrasonic, PZT, plate waves, Love waves, micro-cantilever and vibration of optical fiber arediscussed to inspire the reader to further resear ch and to generate improved versions. The primary standard for viscosity is pure water. Measurements of its viscosity with accuracy/uncertainty achieved are described. The principles ofrotational and oscillation viscometers are explained to enhance the kn owledge in calibration work. Devices used for specific materials and viscosity in non SI units are discussed with respect to the need to correlate viscosity valuesobtained by various devices. The description of commercial viscometers meets the needs of th e user

Title:Getting Started in Radio Astronomy [electronic resource] : Beginner Projects for the Amateur
Author(s): Steven Arnold
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Radio astronomy is a mystery to the majority of amateur astronomers, yet it is the best subjectto turn to whendesirous of an expandedknowledge of the sky. This guide intends to instruct complete newcomers to radioastronomy, and provides help for the first steps on the road towards the study of this fascinating subject. In addition to a history of the science behind the pursuit,directions are included forfour easy-to-build projects, basedaround long-term NASA and Stanford Solar Center projects.The fir st three projects constitute self-contained units available as kits, so there is no need to hunt around for parts. The fourth more advanced project encouragesreaders to do their own research and track down items. Getting Started in Radio Astronomy provi des an overall introduction to listening in on the radio spectrum. With details of equipment that really works, a list of suppliers, listsof online help forums, and written by someone who has actually built and operated the tools described, this book cont ains everything the newcomer to radio astronomy needs to get going

Title:Decoherence and the Quantum-To-Classical Transition [electronic resource]
Author(s): Maximilian Schlosshauer
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The ultimate introduction, textbook, and reference on decoherence and the quantum-to-classical transition. This detailed but accessible text describes the concepts, formalism, interpretation, and experimental observation ofdecoherence and explains ho w decoherence is responsible for the emergence, from the realm of quantum mechanics, of the classical world of our experience. Topics include: Foundational problems at the quantumclassical border The role of the environment and entanglement Environment- induced loss of coherence and superselection Scattering-induced decoherence and spatial localization Master equations Decoherence models Experimentalrealization of Schrdinger kittens and their decoherence Quantum computing, quantum error correction, and decoherence-free subspaces Implications of decoherence for interpretations of quantum mechanics and for themeasurement problem Decoherence in the brain. Written in a lucid and concise style that is accessible to all readers with a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics, this stimulating book tells the classical from quantum storyin a comprehensive and coherent manner that brings together the foundational, technical, and experimental aspects of decoherence. It will be an indispensable resource for newc omers and experts alike. Reads like a bestseller. Anengaging and intuitive treatment of a very important subject, combining the scope of a monograph with the clarity of a textbook and the intellectual excitement of a Sherlock Holmes adventure. Wojciech Zu rek, Los Alamos Everyone whoworks in the borderlands between quantum and classical physics, from philosophers of physics to quantum-computer technologists, will find much here to stimulate and inspire. Gerard Milburn, University of Queensland A thorough,r eadable, and very useful account of decoherence theory and its diverse applications. Valuable as a text and as a reference work, both for graduate

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of the essays collected in this volume is to consider the future of analysis and related areas of physics. It is published in honor of Lennart Carleson, who has devoted much of his career to broadening the scope ofharmonic analysis. Writt en by leading mathematicians and mathematical physicists, the articles should inspire new avenues of research. The collection shows the impressive relationship between physical intuition and mathematicalanalysis. These essays give confidence that the meet ing ground between these areas of mathematics and physics will only grow more fertile in the future
