Title:Space Weather and Coronal Mass Ejections [electronic resource]
Author(s): Tim Howard
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Space weather has attracted a lot of attention in recent times. Severe space weather can disrupt spacecraft, and on Earth can be the cause of power outages and power station failure. It also presents a radiation hazard forairline passengers and astro nauts. These magnetic storms are most commonly caused by coronal mass ejections, or CMES, which are large eruptions of plasma and magnetic field from the Sun that can reach speeds of several thousandkm/s. In this SpringerBrief, Space Weather and Coronal M ass Ejections, author Timothy Howard briefly introduces the coronal mass ejection, its scientific importance, and its relevance to space weather at Earth and other planets. Thistitle focuses on the latest advances in CME observation and modeling, includin g new results from the NASA STEREO and SDO missions. It also includes topical issues regarding space weather and the most recent observations and anecdotalexamples of the impacts of space weather and CMEs

Title:Taking the Back off the Watch [electronic resource] : A Personal Memoir
Author(s): Thomas Gold
Simon Mitton
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Thomas Gold (1920-2004) had a curious mind that liked to solve problems. He was one of the most remarkable astrophysicists in the second half of the twentieth century, and he attracted controversy throughout his career. Based ona full-length autobiog raphy left behind by Thomas Gold, this book was edited by the astrophysicist and historian of science, Simon Mitton (University of Cambridge). The book is a retrospective on Golds remarkable life. He fled fromVienna in 1933, eventually settling in England and completing an engineering degree at Trinity College in Cambridge. During the war, he worked on naval radar research alongside Fred Hoyle and Hermann Bondi which, in an unlikelychain of events, eventually led to his working with them on steady-state cosmology. In 1968, shortly after their discovery, he provided the explanation of pulsars as rotating neutron stars. In his final position at Cornell, he and hiscolleagues persuaded the US Defense Department to fund the conversion of the giant radio teles cope at Arecibo in Puerto Rico into a superb instrument for radio astronomy. Golds interests covered physiology, astronomy, cosmology,geophysics, and engineering. Written in an intriguing style and with an equally intriguing foreword by Freeman Dyson, thi s book constitutes an important historical document, made accessible to all those interested in the history ofscience.

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

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a collection of essays written by the very scientists and engineers who have led, and continue to lead, the scientific quest known as SETI, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Divided into three parts, thefirst section, The Spi rit of SETI Past, written by the surviving pioneers of this then emerging discipline, reviews the major projects undertaken during the first 50 years of SETI science and the results of that research. In thesecond section, The Spirit of SETI Present, the p resent-day science and technology is discussed in detail, providing the technical background to contemporary SETI instruments, experiments, and analytical techniques, including theprocessing of the received signals to extract potential alien communication s. In the third and final section, The Spirit of SETI Future, the book looks ahead to the possible directions that SETI will take in the next 50 years,addressing such important topics as interstellar message construction, the risks and assumptions of inte rstellar communications, when we might make contact, what aliens might look like and what is likely to happen in the aftermath ofsuch a contact

Title:Selected Unsolved Problems in Coding Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): David Joyner
Jon-Lark Kim
Date:2011
Edition:1
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Using an original mode of presentation and emphasizing the computational nature of the subject, this book explores a number of the unsolved problems thatcontinue toexist in coding theory. A well-established and still highlyrelevant branch of mathemat ics, the theory of error-correcting codes is concerned with reliably transmitting data over a noisy channel. Despite its frequent use in a range of contextsthe first close-up pictures of the surfaceof Mars, taken by the NASA spacecraft Mariner 9, were tra nsmitted back to Earth using a ReedMuller codethe subject contains interesting problems that have to date resisted solution by some of the most prominent mathematicians ofrecent decades. Employing SAGEa free open-source mathematics software systemto illus trate their ideas, the authors begin by providing background on linear block codes and introducing some of the special families of codes exploredin later chapters, such as quadratic residue and algebraic-geometric codes. Also surveyed is the theory that i ntersects self-dual codes, lattices, and invariant theory, which leads to an intriguing analogy between the Duursma zetafunction and the zeta function attached to an algebraic curve over a finite field. The authors then examine a connectionbetween the the ory of block designs and the AssmusMattson theorem andscrutinize the knotty problem offinding a non-trivial estimate for the number of solutions over a finite field to a hyperelliptic polynomial equation of small degree, as well as the best asymptotic bou nds for a binary linear block code. Finally, some of the moremysterious aspects relating modular forms and algebraic-geometric codes are discussed. Selected Unsolved Problems in Coding Theory is intended for graduate students and researchers in algebraic coding theory, especially those who areinterested in finding current unsolved problems. Familiarity with concepts in algebra, number theory, and modular forms is assume

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Stata is the most flexible and extensible data analysis package available from a commercial vendor. R is a similarly flexible free and open source package for data analysis, with over 3,000 add-on packages available. This bookshows you how to extend the power of Stata through the use of R. It introduces R using Stata terminology with which you are already familiar. It steps through more than 30 programs written in both languages, comparing and contrastingthe two packages' different approaches. When f inished, you will be able to use R in conjunction with Stata, or separately, to import data, manage and transform it, create publication quality graphics, and perform basic statisticalanalyses. A glossary defines over 50 R terms using Stata jargon and aga in using more formal R terminology. The table of contents and index allow you to find equivalent R functions by looking up Stata commands and vice versa. Theexample programs and practice datasets for both R and Stata are available for download. Robert A. Muenchen is the author of the book, R for SAS and SPSS Users, and is a consulting statistician with 29 years of experience. He has servedon the advisory boards of SAS Institute, SPSS Inc., and the Statistical Graphics Corporation. He currently manages Res earch Computing Support at The University of Tennessee. Joseph M. Hilbe is Solar System Ambassador with NASA/JetPropulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, an adjunct professor of statistics at Arizona State, and emeritus professor at the U niversity of Hawaii. He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and electedmember of the International Statistical Institute. Hilbe was the first editor of the Stata Technical Bulletin, (later named the Stata Journal) and is author of a number of textbooks, including Logistic Regression Models and NegativeBinomial Regression

Note:Lars Lindberg Christensen, Raquel Yumi Shida & Davide De Martin Cosmic Collisions: The Hubble Atlas of Merging Galaxies Like majestic ships in the grandest night, galaxies can slip ever closer until their mutual gravitationalinteraction begins to mol d them into intricate figures that are finally, and irreversibly, woven together. It is an immense cosmic dance, choreographed by gravity. Cosmic Collisions contains a hundred new, many thus far unpublished,images of colliding galaxies from the NASA/ESA H ubble Space Telescope. It is believed that many present-day galaxies, including the Milky Way, were assembled from such a coalescence of smaller galaxies, occurring over billions ofyears. Triggered by the colossal and violent interaction between the galax ies, stars form from large clouds of gas in firework bursts, creating brilliant blue star clusters. The importance of these cosmic encounters reaches far beyondthe stunning Hubble images. They may, in fact, be among the most important processes that shape the universe we inhabit today.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Ice, Rock, and Beauty is a book for anybody who lives in the solar neighborhood, and takes an interest in its significance to us as residents. Human experience of the Solar System is changing rapidly. Techniques of observationfrom Earth-based telesco pes continue to develop, while missions such as Voyager, Galileo, Cassini, and the Hubble Space Telescope have yielded many stunning images. So although most people have some knowledge of the essential structureof the Solar System, relatively few are fami liar with the amazing diversity of objects that travel with and amongst the planets in their journeys around the Sun. The book gathers images from a rich pool, many from national andinternational organizations such as NASA and ESA, some directly from acad emic astronomers, and a few from private individuals. Together they tell a story of the Solar System, and of its beauty, that has not been told before

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Lars Lindberg Christensen is a science communication specialist and works in Munich, Germany, as head of communication for the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope in Europe. Many people know something about communication it isafter all an innate human a bility but a full comprehension of how to do science communication effectively is not acquired easily. This Guide touches upon all aspects of science communication, revealing a tightly interwoven fabricof issues: product types, target groups, written com munication, visual communication, validation processes, practices of efficient workflow, distribution, promotion, advertising and much more. New science communicators will find thisGuide both helpful and inspirational. I am overwhelmed at how thorough and how well thought-through this book is. Even with my regular relationships with popular communication and with public relations officers, I hadnt realizedhow well documented the field could be until I saw it done here. -Jay M. Pasachoff, Williams College, President, IAU Commission on Education and Development, author of The Cosmos: Astronomy in the New Millennium and The CompleteIdiots Guide to the Sun I would have expected a high standard from a public outreach scientist at the European Space Agency, but this soars way above the normal standard of competence. I have certainly learned a great deal fromthis guide. It deserves a wide readership among science communicators. -Simon Mitton, Author of Conflict in the Cosmos: Fred Hoyles Life in Science and Edit or of The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy Christensen uses clearprinciples and well-chosen examples, along with tables, diagrams, and even a press release visibility scale to convey the art and science of Science Communication in an authoritative and illuminating manner. -Stephen P.

Title:Space Systems Failures [electronic resource] : Disasters and Rescues of Satellites, Rockets and Space Probes

Publisher:New York, NY : Praxis
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 1960s and 1970s deep space missions were dispatched in pairs in case one was lost in launch or failed during its journey. Following the triumphs of the Viking landings on Mars in 1976 and both Voyagers spacecraftsuccessfully surveying the oute r giant planets of the Solar System, it was decided by NASA to cut costs and send out just a single probe. Although Magellan successfully mapped Venus by radar, it suffered from problems during theflight. Then came the loss of Mars Observer, whose engine exploded as it was preparing to enter Mars orbit because it was using technology designed for Earths satellites and the engine was not suited to spending several months inspace. Later came the high-profile losses of Mars Climate Observer and Mars Polar La nder - a consequence of the faster, better, cheaper philosophy introduced by Dan Goldin in 1993. Even the highly successful Galileo mission suffered amajor setback when its high-gain antenna (also based on satellite mission suffered a major setback when i ts high-gain antenna (also based on satellite communication technology) failed to deploy fully, greatly diminishing the craftsradio transmission capabilities, forcing the ground crew to re-programme the on-board computer to enable it to fulfil its mission and provide stunning images of Jupiter and its moons. In Space Systems Failures, David Harland (hereworking with co-author Ralph Lorenz) describes the many quite fascinating tales of woe involving failures of rockets, satellites and deep space missions i n his inimitable style, providing a unique insight into the trials andtribulations of exploration at the high frontier
