Title:Basic Concepts in Physics [electronic resource] : From the Cosmos to Quarks
Author(s): Masud Chaichian
Hugo Perez Rojas
Anca Tureanu
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Basic Concepts in Physics: From the Cosmos to Quarks is the outcome of the authors' long and varied teaching experience in different countries and for different audiences, and gives an accessible and eminently readableintroduction to all the main ide as of modern physics. The books fresh approach, using a novel combination of historical and conceptual viewpoints, makes it ideal complementary reading to more standard textbooks. The first fivechapters are devoted to classical physics, from planetary mot ion to special relativity, always keeping in mind its relevance to questions of contemporary interest. The next six chapters deal mainly with newer developments in physics,from quantum theory and general relativity to grand unified theories, and the book concludes by discussing the role of physics in living systems. A basic grounding in mathematics is required of the reader, but technicalities areavoided as far as possible thus complex calculations are omitted so long as the essential ideas remain clear. The book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students in physics and will also be appreciated by many professionalphysicists. It will likewise beof interest to students, researchers and teachers of other natural sciences, as well as to engineers, h igh-school teachers and the curious general reader, who will come to understand what physics isabout and how it describes the different phenomena of Nature. Not only will readers of this book learn much about physics, they will also learn to love it.

Note:Born after World War II, large-scale experimental high-energy physics (HEP) has found itself limited ever since by available accelerator, detector and computing technologies. Accordingly, HEP has made significant contributions tothe development of th ese fields, more often than not driving their innovations. The invention of the World Wide Web at CERN is merely the best-known example out of many. This book is the first comprehensive account to trace the historyof this pioneering spirit in the field of computing technologies. It covers everything up to and including the present-day handling of the huge demands imposed upon grid and distributed computing by full-scale LHC operations -operations which have for years involved many thousands of collaborati ng members worldwide and accordingly provide the original and natural testbed for grid computing concepts. This book takes the reader on a guided tour encompassingall relevant topics, including programming languages, software engineering, large databases, the Web, and grid- and cloud computing. The important issue of intellectual property regulations for distributed software engineering andcomputing is also addressed. Aptly, the book closes with a visionary chapter of what may lie ahead. Approachable and requiring only basic understanding of physics and computer sciences, this book is intended for both education andresearch

Edition:1st Edition
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Channel modeling and analysis of multiband signals are becoming increasingly important in the field of communications, and the study of time and band limiting is a crucial component of these processes. This concise butcomprehensive monograph is the f irst to be devoted specifically to this study, providing a thorough investigation of its theory and applications. Via state-of-the-art numerical methods, it develops the tools for applications not onlyto communications engineering, but also to optical eng ineering, geosciences, planetary sciences, and biomedicine. Duration and Bandwidth Limitingbegins with a discussion of the Bell Labs theory, both discrete and continuous, andgoes on to address various related numerical and analytical techniques. It introd uces a number of problems relevant to finite signal processing, and finally builds a theoretical framework for the sampling of time- and band-limitedsignals. Throughout, the book contains extensive supplemental material, giving greater depth on these subt opics to those who desire it. With an unprecedented breadth of coverage and a careful balance between rigor and readability,Duration and Bandwidth Limiting is a particularly convenient resource both for mathematicians interested in the field and for profe ssional engineers with an interest in theory. While its main target audience is practicing scientists,the book may also serve as useful supplemental reading material for mathematically-based graduate courses in communications and signal processing

Title:High-Pressure Crystallography [electronic resource] : From Fundamental Phenomena to Technological Applications
Author(s): Elena Boldyreva
Przemyslaw Dera
Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
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

Title:A Passion for the Planets [electronic resource] Envisioning Other Worlds, From the Pleistocene to the Age of the Telescope
Author(s): William Sheehan
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Astronomy is by far the most popular of the physical sciences, enticing enough to become a major cultural preoccupation for many, and for some an enthralling scientific activity which veritably rules their lives. What is thenature of that seemingly u nstoppable attraction? In this lively and compelling account, William Sheehan professional psychiatrist, noted historian of astronomy, and incurable observer - explores the nature of that allure throughthe story of man's visual exploration of the planets . In this volume, the first of a trilogy, Sheehan starts with observational astronomys profound and lasting effect on his own life, setting the points of embarkation for thejourney to come. He travels across the historical landscape seeking the earliest o rigins of man's compulsion to observe the planets among the hunter gatherers of the upper palaeolithic, and traces the evolving story from the planetaryrecords of the earliest cities, to Pharonic Egypt through to Hellenistic Greek astronomy culminating in Ptolemy. The necessity to observe played its part in the perceptual changes wrought by the Copernican revolution, as well as theobservational advances achieved by such extraordinary characters as Tycho with his sharpest of eyes, and his luxurious practic e of total astronomy. The two epochal advances published in 1609, both born through planetary observation,namely Kepler's discovery of the true nature of the orbit of Mars and Harriot and Galileos observations of the Moon, have a pivotal place in this acc ount. Sheehan weaves a rich tapestry of social and technological settings,patronage and personalities, equipment and skills, cosmologies and goals, motives and compulsions to try to explain why we have observed, and continue to observe, the planets. The c ompelling text of A Passion for the Planets isenhanced by the specially commissioned planetary artwork of Julian Baum, himself son of a noted planetary observer and historian of planetary obser

Title:The Earth as a Distant Planet [electronic resource] A Rosetta Stone for the Search of Earth-Like Worlds
Author(s): M Vzquez
E Pall
P Montas Rodrguez
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Is the Earth, in some way, special? Or is our planet but one of the millions of other inhabited planets within our galaxy? This is an exciting time to be asking this old question, because for the first time in history, the answeris within reach. In T he Earth as a Distant Planet, the authors set themselves as external observers of our Solar System from an astronomical distance. From that perspective, the authors describe how the Earth, the third planet indistance to the central star, can be catalogued as having its own unique features and as capable of sustaining life. The knowledge gained from this original perspective is then applied to the ongoing search for planets outside thesolar system, or exoplanets. Since the discovery in 1992 of the first ex oplanet, the number of known planets has increased exponentially. Ambitious space missions are already being designed for the characterization of their atmospheresand to explore the possibility that they host life. The exploration of Earth and the rest of the rocky planets in our Solar System will help us in classifying and understanding the multiplicity of planetary systems that exist in ourgalaxy. In time, statistics on the formation and evolution of exoplanets will be available and will provide vital i nformation for solving some of the unanswered questions about the formation, as well as the evolution, of our own world.The authors provide an introductory but also very much up-to-date referenced text, making this book useful not only for the layman, but also for researchers and advanced students in Astrophysics and Earth Sciences
