Title:Imminent Science [electronic resource] : What Remains to be Discovered
Author(s): Giovanni F Bignami
Date:2014
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This is not a piece of science fiction. Its a voyage along the arrow of time to encounter the discoveries of the coming fifty years. The legendary palindromic character, Mr. Qfwfq, from Italo Calvinos The Cosmicomicswillgo with us: he who knows all t he answers, but will give out no hints. He goads imagination onwards and corrects customs by laughing. He will help us discover the innovations that will have changed our lives (and those of ourdescendants) in 2062, when, riding astride Halleys comet, our omniscient extraterrestrial will be back to visit us. What is left for us to understand and to explore is 96% of the Universe. There is still a long way to travel, butstep by step we shall go deeper and deeper into the study of our Earth in order to expl oit, for instance, the immense thermal energy that lies beneath our feet. We shall solve anotherenigmain todays science, as big as the BigBang the origin of life also by creating itex nihilo.We shall learn how to buildadirect contact between our brain ( which is made like a three-flavored ice-cream cone) and the rest of the world: had Cicero and Mozartlived tomorrow, they would have been happy with the invention of a USB keyto beimplanted behind their ears, for an immediate transcript of speeches and mus ic. By means of genetics we shall obtain the talents of lizards, whichregenerate their lost tails, or of Methuselah flies, which live four times longer than other flies. And shortly before Halleys 2062 passage, the baby will be born who will see it three times, by living for over 150 years. But thefuture is made mainly by the appropriate tools, beginning with maths. Solving the problem of prime numbers would send all cash machines off their rocker, thus emptying our bank accounts overnight. The solution t o the equation of fluidswill teach us how to carry an iceberg from Greenland to Sicily, thus supplying fresh water at a low cost. Meatculture growing steaks re

Title:The Protos Mandate [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Nick Kanas M.D.
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In the 25th Century, the effects of overpopulation and global warming on Earth have led to the formation of human colonies on the Moon, Mars and elsewhere in the Solar System, yet the limited number of viable places forceshumanity to look to the star s.A crash program has been developed to send Protos 1, a giant multigenerational starship, to a newly discovered Earth-like planet orbiting a nearby star. The plan is for awake crewmembers to run the ship,and for people in suspended animation to be roused before planetfall to use their skills in exploration and colony formation. To fulfill the goals of the mission and ensure that the in-flight population does not deplete the limitedresources, the Protos Mandate is set up to govern a tightly controlled soc ial system for the duration of the journey, which will take several generations.But problems threaten to sabotage the mission during its launch and transit,and what finally awaits the crewmembers shocks them in an unpredictable way. This novel chronicles the trials and tribulations of this epic first interstellar mission. The scientific appendix at the end of the book discusses thechallenges of such an interstellar mission based on an extensive literature review, and it links these challenges to specific episodes in the novel. Issues that are considered include interstellar propulsion systems, economicconsiderations of interstellar flight, psychological and sociological factors inherent in a multigenerational space mission, problems with suspended animat ion, current knowledge of exoplanets, and issues related to colonizing a distantplanet and the possible discovery of extraterrestrial life.A history of interstellar missions in science fiction is also reviewed. Nick Kanas is an Emeritus Professor of Psyc hiatry at the University of California, San Francisco,where he directed the group therapy training program. For over 20 years he conducted research in group therapy, and for nearly 2

Title:The Hunter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Giancarlo Genta
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The 24th century: humankind has become a spacefaring civilization, colonizing the solar system and beyond. While no alien forms of life have yet been encountered in this expansion into space, colonists suddenly encounter machinesof alien origin - hug e robots able to reproduce themselves. Called replicators by the colonists, they seem to have but a single goal: to destroy all organic life they come in contact with. Since the colonial governments have no meansto fight this menace directly, they instead promise huge rewards to whoever destroys a replicator. As a result, the frontier attracts a new kind of adventurers, the Hunters, who work to find and destroy the replicators. Mike Edwards, avvskilled young maintenance technician and robotics expert at a faraway outpost, will not only become one of them - but be the very first one to unlock the secret behind the replicators origin and mission. The scientific andtechnical aspects underlying the plot - in particular space travel, robotics and self-replica ting spacecraft - are introduced and discussed by the author in an extensive non-technical appendix. An expert in space flight technology,with a special interest in space robotics and advanced space propulsion, Giancarlo Genta is a professor in the Depart ment of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the Politecnico di Torino, in Turin, Italy. He is also director ofthe Italian SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) study center and is a full member of the International Academy of Astronautics. H e has written more than 300 scientific papers and 11 scientific books.Among his popularscience books are Space: The Final Frontier?, published by Cambridge University Press in 2002, and Lonely Minds in the Universe - The Search for Extraterrestrial Intell igence, published by Springer-Copernicus in June 2007. The Hunter,already published in Italian and Ukrainian, is his first novel

Title:Holy Sci-Fi! [electronic resource] : Where Science Fiction and Religion Intersect
Author(s): Paul J Nahin
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Can a computer have a soul? Are religion and science mutually exclusive?Is there really such a thing as free will?If you could time travel to visit Jesus, would you (and should you)?For hundreds of years, philosophers,scientists, and science fiction writers have pondered these questions and many more. In Holy Sci-Fi!, popular writer Paul Nahin explores the fertile and sometimes uneasy relationship between science fiction and religion. With a scopespanning the history of religion, philosophy, and lite rature, Nahin follows religious themes in science fiction from Feynman to Foucault, and from Asimov to Aristotle. An intriguing journey through popular and well-loved books andstories, Holy Sci-Fi! shows how sci-fi has informed humanity's attitudes toward s our faiths, our future, and ourselves

Title:Integrating Routing Decisions in Public Transportation Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marie E Schmidt
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book treats three planning problems arising in public railway transportation planning: line planning, timetabling, and delay management, with the objective to minimize passengers travel time. While many optimizationapproaches simplify these prob lems by assuming that passengers route choice is independent of the solution, this book focuses on models which take into account that passengers will adapt their travel route to the implementedplanning solution. That is, a planning solution and passenger s routes are determined and evaluated simultaneously. This work is technically deep, with insightful findings regarding complexity and algorithmic approaches to publictransportation problems with integrated passenger routing. It is intended for researcher s in the fields of mathematics, computer science, or operations research, working in the field of public transportation from an optimizationstandpoint. It is also ideal for students who want to gain intuition and experience in doing complexity proofs and designing polynomial-time algorithms for network problems. The book models line planning, timetabling, and delaymanagement as combined design and routing problems on networks. In a complexity analysis, the border between NP-hard and polynomially solvable problems is illustrated. Based on that, the insights gained are used to develop solutionapproaches for the considered problems. Besides integer programming formulations, a heuristic method iterating planning and routing steps is proposed to solve the prob lems

Title:A Mathematical Odyssey [electronic resource] : Journey from the Real to the Complex
Author(s): Steven G Krantz
Harold R Parks
Date:2014
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Mathematics is a poem. It is a lucid, sensual, precise exposition of beautiful ideas directed to specific goals. It is worthwhile to have as broad a cross-section of mankind as possible be conversant with what goes on inmathematics. Just as everyone knows that the Internet is a powerful and important tool for communication, so everyone should know that the Poincar conjecture gives us important information about the shape of our universe. Just asevery responsible citizen realizes that the mass-product ion automobile was pioneered by Henry Ford, just so everyone should know that the P/NP problem has implications for security and data manipulation that will affect everyone. Thisbook endeavors to tell the story of the modern impact of mathematics, of its trials and triumphs and insights, in language that can be appreciated by a broad audience. It endeavors to show what mathematics means for our lives, how itimpacts all of us, and what new thoughts it should cause us to entertain. It introduces new vistas of mathematical ideas and shares the excitement of new ideas freshly minted. It discusses the significance and impact of these ideas,and gives them meaning that will travel well and cause people to reconsider their place in the universe. Mathematics is on e of mankind's oldest disciplines. Along with philosophy, it has shaped the very modus of human thought. And itcontinues to do so. To be unaware of modern mathematics is to be miss out on a large slice of life. It is to be left out of essential modern dev elopments. We want to address this point, and do something about it. This is a book to makemathematics exciting for people of all interests and all walks of life. Mathematics is exhilarating, it is ennobling, it is uplifting, and it is fascinating. We wan t to show people this part of our world, and to get them to travel newpaths

Title:Exploring Science Through Science Fiction [electronic resource]
Author(s): Barry B Luokkala
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:How does Einsteins description of space and time compare with Dr. Who? Can James Bond really escape from an armor-plated railroad car by cutting through the floor with a laser concealed in a wristwatch? What would it take tocreate a fully-intelligent android, such as Star Treks Commander Data? How might we discover intelligent civilizations on other planets in the galaxy? Is human teleportation possible? Will our technological society ever reach thepoint at which it becomes lawful to discriminate on the basis of genetic information, as in the movie GATTACA? Exploring Science Through Science Fiction addresses these and other interesting questions, using science fiction as aspringboard for discussing fundamental science concepts and cutting-edge scienc e research. The book is designed as a primary text for a college-level course which should appeal to students in the fine arts and humanities as well as toscience and engineering students. It includes references to original research papers, landmark scien tific publications and technical documents, as well as a broad range of science literature at a more popular level. With over 180references to specific scenes in 130 sci-fi movies and TV episodes, spanning over 100 years of cinematic history, it should be an enjoyable read for anyone with an interest in science and science fiction

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the variousengineering and science dis ciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operationalvehicles that are closely interrelated to discipl ines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences. The knowledge of environmental conditions on and around the Moon, Mars, Venus and the low Earthorbit as well as other possible candidates for landing such as asteroi ds have become an important issue, and protecting both hardware and human life from the effects of space environments has taken on a new meaning in light of theincreased interest in space travel and colonization of other planets. And while many material e xperiments have been carried out on the ground and in open space in the last 50 years (LDEF, MEEP, SARE, MISSE, AOP, DSPSE, ESEM, EURECA,HST, MDIM, MIS, MPID, MPAC and SEED), many questions regarding the environmental impact of space on materials remain e ither poorly understood or unanswered. The coming generations of scientists will have to continue this work andtackle new challenges, continuing to build the level of confidence humans will need to continue the colonization of space. It is hoped that the proceedings of the ICPMSE-10J presented in this book will constitute a small contributionto doing so

Title:It Came From Outer Space Wearing an RAF Blazer! [electronic resource] : A Fan's Biography of Sir Patrick Moore

Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:To British television viewers, the name Patrick Moore has been synonymous with Astronomy and Space Travel since he first appeared on The Sky at Night in 1957. To amateur astronomers he has been a source of inspiration, joy,humour and even an eccentri c role model since that time. Most people know that his 55 years of presenting The Sky at Night is a world record, but what was he really like in person? What did he do away from the TV cameras, in hisobservatory, and within the British Astronomical Assoc iation, the organisation that inspired him as a youngster? Also, precisely what did he do during the War Years, a subject that has always been shrouded in mystery? Martin Mobberley,a friend of Patrick Moores for 30 years, and a former President of the Bri tish Astronomical Association, has spent ten years exhaustively researching Patricks real life away from the TV cameras. His childhood, RAF service,tireless voluntary work for astronomy and charity and his endless book writing are all examined in detail. His astronomical observations are also examined in unprecedented detail, along with the battles he fought along the way and hishatred of bureaucracy and political correctness. No fan of Sir Patrick Moore can possibly live without this work on their booksh elf!

Note:This text introduces upper division undergraduate/beginning graduate students in mathematics, finance, or economics, to the core topics of a beginning course in finance/financial engineering. Particular emphasis is placed onexploiting the power of th e Monte Carlo method to illustrate and explore financial principles. Monte Carlo is the uniquely appropriate tool for modeling the random factors that drive financial markets and simulating their implications.The Monte Carlo method is introduced early and it is used in conjunction with the geometric Brownian motion model (GBM) to illustrate and analyze the topics covered in the remainder of the text. Placing focus on Monte Carlo methodsallows for students to travel a short road from theory to practical ap plications. Coverage includes investment science, mean-variance portfolio theory, option pricing principles, exotic options, option trading strategies, jumpdiffusion and exponential Lvy alternative models, and the Kelly criterion for maximizing investment growth. Novel features: inclusion of both portfolio theory and contingent claim analysis in a single text pricing methodology forexotic options expectation analysis of option trading strategies pricing models that transcend the BlackScholes framework opt imizing investment allocations concepts thoroughly explored through numerous simulation exercises numerousworked examples and illustrations The mathematical background required is a year and one-half course in calculus, matrix algebra covering solutions o f linear systems, and a knowledge of probability including expectation, densities andthe normal distribution. A refresher for these topics is presented in the Appendices. The programming background needed is how to code branching, loops and subroutines in some mathematical or general purpose language.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As one of the most prolific mathematicians of our time, Karl Gustafson has been a central figure in the astonishing technological revolution of the last half-centurya revolution which has transformed human life. This, his ownaccount of his journey th rough those decades, takes the reader from his early pioneering work in computing and espionage, where his contribution was vital to the American Cold War effort, to his observations on core contemporary issuessuch as the stability of the worlds financial system. Gustafsons crucial role in top-secret military intelligence, which saw him tracking Russian submarines, intercepting electronic intelligence and writing the software forAmericas first spy satellite, is related here for the first time. His narrati ve includes fascinating encounters with Nobel laureates and figures of historical importance, the European post-doctoral fellowships that expanded hisperspectives on science and life, and hair-raising stories from his early rock-climbing days including br ushes with death then and later, such as being struck by lightning and knocked unconscious near a mountain top. Gustafsonswide-ranging mathematical accomplishments have led to invitations and travel throughout the world, and he tells of the greatand at ti mes strangepersonalities he has met along the way. His unique journey has included hard knocksand beautiful women, who have, as he likes to say, added to the great adventure

Note:The most massive stars in the galaxy - those with more than 15 to 20 solar masses - are lilkely to ionize their surroundings before they reach their final mass. How can they accrete in spite of the presence of over-pressurizedgas? This thesis present s results of Submillimeter Array (SMA) and Very Large Array (VLA) studies of massive star formation regions in the early stages of ionization, as well as an analysis of numerical simulations of the evolution ofthese young HII regions. The results favor a picture in which very massive stars form in accretion flows that are partially ionized and that keep accreting material from their environment.

Title:Emigrating Beyond Earth [electronic resource] : Human Adaptation and Space Colonization

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For four million years humankind has been actively expanding geographically and in doing so has adapted to a wide variety of hostile environments. Now we are looking towards the ultimate adaptation - the colonization of space.Emigrating Beyond Earth illustrates that this is not a technocratic endeavor, but a natural continuation of human evolution a journey not just for the engineer and rocket scientist, but for everyman. Based on the most currentunderstanding of our universe, human adaptation and ev olution, the authors explain why space colonization must be planned as an adaptation to, rather than the conquest of, space. Emigrating Beyond Earth argues that space colonizationis an insurance policy for our species, and that it isn't about rockets and robots, it's about humans doing what we've been doing for four million years: finding new places and new ways to live. Applying a unique anthropologicalapproach, the authors outline a framework for continued human space exploration and offer a glimpse of a possible human future involving interstellar travel and settlement of worlds beyond our own

Note:Numerical Ecology with R provides a long-awaited bridge between a textbook in Numerical Ecology and the implementation of this discipline in the R language. After short theoretical overviews, the authors accompany the usersthrough the exploration of the methods by means of applied and extensively commented examples. Users are invited to use this book as a teaching companion at the computer. The travel starts with exploratory approaches, proceeds with theconstruction of associationmatrices, then addre sses three families of methods: clustering, unconstrained and canonical ordination,and spatial analysis. All the necessary data files, the scripts used in the chapters, as well as theextra R functions and packages written by the authors, can be downloaded from a web page accessible through the Springer web site(http://adn.biol.umontreal.ca/~numericalecology/numecolR/). This book is aimed at professionalresearchers, practitioners, graduate students and teachers in ecology, environmental science and enginee ring, and in related fields such as oceanography, molecular ecology, agriculture and soil science, who already have a background ingeneral and multivariate statistics and wish to apply this knowledge to their data using the R language, as well as people w illing to accompany their disciplinary learning with practical applications. People from other fields (e.g.geology, geography, paleoecology, phylogenetics, anthropology, the social and education sciences, etc.) may also benefit from the materials presente d in this book. The three authors teach numerical ecology, both theoretical andpractical, to a wide array of audiences, in regular courses in their Universities and in short courses given around the world. Daniel Borcard is lecturer of Biostatistics and E cology and researcher in Numerical Ecology at Universitde Montral, Qubec, Canada.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:April 12, 2011 is the 50th Anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's pioneering journey into space. To commemorate this momentous achievement, Springer-Praxis is producing a mini-series of books that reveals how humanity's knowledge offlying, working, and living in space has grown in the last half century. Foothold in the Heavens focuses on the early 1970s, when we completed our first exploration of the Moon and established a real, long-term presence in orbit withthe first space stations. It marked a transitiona l phrase between the heady days of the 1960s and efforts to make space travel more economical, more frequent and more routine in the later 1970s and 1980s. This book explores the intensecompetition and bitter rivalry between the United States and the Sovi et Union - with one side devoting its energies to lunar exploration, the other diverting its attention to near-Earth studies - which eventually brought a pair of ColdWar foes away from the nuclear trigger to the negotiating table and opened a new era of c ooperation in space

Note:Typical travel guides have sections on architecture, art, literature, music and cinema. Rarely are any science-related sites identified. For example, a current travel guide for Germany contains one tidbit on science: Einstein isidentified as the most famous citizen of Ulm. By contrast, this travel guide walks a tourist through Berlin and identifies where Max Planck started the quantum revolution, where Einstein lived and gave his early talks on generalrelativity, and where, across the street, Einstei ns books were burned by the Nazis. Or, if you are walking in Paris, this guide tells you where radioactivity was discovered and where radium was discovered. Scientific discoveries ofthe past, like art of the past, has shaped life in the 21st century. From this travel guide, a tourist will learn what other guides leave out

Title:Elementary Functional Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Barbara MacCluer
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:This text is intended for a one-semester introductory course in functional analysis for graduate students and well-prepared advanced undergraduates in mathematics and related fields. It is also suitable for self-study, and couldbe used for an indepen dent reading course for undergraduates preparing to start graduate school. While this book is relatively short, the author has not sacrificed detail. Arguments are presented in full, and many examples arediscussed, making the book ideal for the reader who may be learning the material on his or her own, without the benefit of a formal course or instructor. Each chapter concludes with an extensive collection of exercises. The choice oftopics presented represents not only the author's preferences, but also h er desire to start with the basics and still travel a lively path through some significant parts of modern functional analysis. The text includes some historicalcommentary, reflecting the author's belief that some understanding of the historical context o f the development of any field in mathematics both deepens and enlivens one's appreciation of the subject. The prerequisites for this bookinclude undergraduate courses in real analysis and linear algebra, and some acquaintance with the basic notions of po int set topology. An Appendix provides an expository discussion of the more advanced real analysis prerequisites,which play a role primarily in later sections of the book. Barbara MacCluer is Professor of Mathematics at University of Virginia. She also co -authored a book with Carl Cowen, Composition Operators on Spaces of Analytic Functions (CRC1995)

Note:In The Search for Extraterrestrials, Monte Ross explores in detail the key problems in starting a search, the programs that have failed and those that continue. He includes the fundamental considerations and the physics of thenecessary laser, UV, IR and RF technologies, as well as coding and information theory considerations. The author explores future possibilities providing the reader with a comprehensive view of the many ways signals from aliens could besent and explains why the search using RF le aves more than 99% of the electromagnetic spectrum unexamined. He also demonstrates the many parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, considering the next likely steps in this uniqueenterprise. Given mans intrinsic nature to explore, the search will continu e in one form or many, until success is achieved, which may be tomorrow or a millennium away. In summary, Monte Ross proposes to get around the failure of afruitless search at radio frequencies by developing, in a precise way, the argument for searching f or transmissions in the optical region of the electromagnetic spectrum

Title:Chance Rules [electronic resource] : an informal guide to probability, risk and statistics

Note:Chance continues to govern our lives in the 21st Century. From the genes we inherit and the environment into which we are born, to the lottery ticket we buy at the local store, much of life is a gamble. In business, education,travel, health, and marr iage, we take chances in the hope of obtaining something better. Chance colors our lives with uncertainty, and so it is important to examine it and try to understand about how it operates in a number ofdifferent circumstances. Such understanding becomes s impler if we take some time to learn a little about probability, since probability is the natural language of uncertainty. This second edition of Chance Rules again recounts thestory of chance through history and the various ways it impacts on our lives. Here you can read about the earliest gamblers who thought that the fall of the dice was controlled by the gods, as well as the modern geneticist and quantumtheory researcher trying to integrate aspects of probability into their chosen speciality. Example included in the first addition such as the infamous Monty Hall problem, tossing coins, coincidences, horse racing, birthdays and babiesremain, often with an expanded discussion, in this edition. Additional material in the second edition includes, a probab ilistic explanation of why things were better when you were younger, consideration of whether you can useprobability to prove the existence of God, how long you may have to wait to win the lottery, some court room dramas, predicting the future, and how ev olution scores over creationism. Chance Rules lets you learn about probabilitywithout complex mathematics. Brian Everitt is Professor Emeritus at King's College, London. He is the author of over 50 books on statistics

Title:Gravity, Black Holes, and the Very Early Universe [electronic resource] : An Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology
Author(s): Tai L Chow
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the early 1900s, Albert Einstein formulated two theories that would forever change the landscape of physics: the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity. By 1925, quantum mechanics had been born outof the dissection of th ese two theories, and shortly after that, relativistic quantum field theory. We now had in place some important ties between the laws of physics and the types of particle interactions the new physics wasuncovering. Gravity is one of the four types of forc es that are found throughout the universe. In fact, although it is a relatively weak force, it operates at huge distances, and so must be accounted for in any cosmological system.Unfortunately, gravity continues to defy our neat categorization of how all the forces in nature work together. Professor Tai Chow, from the California State University at Stanislaus in Turlock, lays out for us the basic ideas ofEinstein, including his law of gravitation, explains the physics behind black holes, and weaves into t his an absorbing account an explanation of the structure of the universe and the science of cosmology, including presenting thevarious models of the Big Bang, the Inflationary Universe, and the Unification of Forces. Travel with him down this engaging pat h to reach some fascinating conclusions, which raise even more interesting questions for the future ofastronomy and physics. Says Dr. Mark Silverman of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut: The author introduces the mathematical methods essential to understanding and applying general relativitybut leaves to more advancedreferences derivations that a beginning student would likely find overly long and tedious. In this way the student can concentrate on learning physics .A strong point [is] the compreh ensive discussion of the physics of blackholes. Here again the author has hit just the right level of presentation: sufficient mathematical detail to demonstrate the physical attributes

Note:Springer e-book platform
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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Inexpensive webcams are revolutionizing imaging in amateur astronomy by providing an affordable alternative to cooled-chip astronomical CCD cameras, for photographing the brighter astronomical objects. Webcams costing only afew tens of dollars are capable of more advanced high resolution work than normal digital cameras because their rapid image download speed can freeze fine planetary details, even through the Earth's turbulent atmosphere. Also,their simple construction makes it easy to remove the lens, allowing them to be used at high power at the projected focus of an astronomical telescope. Webcams also connect direct to a PC, so that software can be used to stackmultiple images, providing a stunning increase in image quality. In the Lunar and Planetary Webcam Users Guide Martin Mobberley de-mystifies the jargon of webcams and computer processing, and provides detailed hints and tips forimaging the Sun, Moon and planets with a webcam. He looks at each observing target separately, describing and explaining all specialised techniques in context. Glance through the images in this book to see just how much you can easily achieve by using a webcam with your telescope!

Title:Solar journey: The significance of our galactic environment for the heliosphere and earth [electronic resource]
Author(s): Priscilla C Frisch
Date:2006
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Humans evolved when the Sun was in the great void of the Local Bubble. The Sun entered the present environment of interstellar clouds only during the late Quaternary. Astronomical data reveal these long and short term changes inour galactic environme nt. Theoretical models then tell us how these changes affect interplanetary particles, planetary magnetospheres, and the Earth itself. Cosmic rays leave an isotopic signature in the paleoclimate record that helpstrace the solar journey through space. Sola r Journey: The Significance of Our Galactic Environment for the Heliosphere and Earth lays the foundation for an interdisciplinary study of the influence of interstellar material on thesolar system and Earth as we travel through the Milky Way Galaxy. The solar wind bubble responds dynamically to interstellar material flowing past the Sun, regulating interstellar gas, dust, and cosmic particle fluxes in theinterplanetary medium and the Earth. Cones of interstellar gas and dust focused by solar gravity, the magnetospheres of the outer planets, and cosmic rays at Earth all might yield the first hints of changes in our galactic environment.Twelve articles from leading experts in diverse fields discuss the physical changes expected as the heliosphere adjusts t o its galactic environment. Topics include the interaction between the solar wind and interstellar dust and gas,cosmic ray modulation, magnetospheres, temporal variations in the solar environment, and the cosmic ray isotope record preserved in paleoclimat e data. The breadth of processes discussed in this book make it a valuable resource forscientists and students doing research in the fields of Space Physics, Astronomy and the Paleoclimate

Note:Although transportation economists have advocated the tolling of urban streets as a mechanism for controlling congestion and managing travel demands for over 50 years, it is only recently that this idea has become practical. Whencompared to the alter native of building more roads, congestion pricingin particular via electronic tollingis attractive and has been adopted in countries around the world. Recent implementations in London, Singapore, and variouscities in Norway, as well as a number of project s in the United States, have been judged successful. This book presents rigorous treatments of issues related to congestion pricing. The chapters describe recent advances in areas such asmathematical and computational models for predicting traffic congest ion, determining when, where, and how much to levy tolls, and analyzing the impact of tolls on transporation systems. The analyses and methodologies developed in thisbook provide Mechanisms that aid in determining and comparing congestion pricing schemes Methodologies for evaluating the efficiency of existing and proposed congestion pricing schemes A means to predict the impact of pricing onurban transporation systems Information essential to the financial and political success of congestion pricing progr ams.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Fiber-optic communication systems have revolutionized our telecommunication infrastructures currently, almost all telephone land-line, cellular, and internet communications must travel via some form of optical fibers. Inthese transmission systems, n either the phase nor frequency of the optical signal carries information only the intensity of the signal is used. To transmit more information in a single optical carrier, the phase of the opticalcarrier must be explored. As a result, there is renewed i nterest in phase-modulated optical communications, mainly in direct-detection DPSK signals for long-haul optical communication systems. When optical amplifiers are used tomaintain certain signal level among the fiber link, the system is limited by amplifi er noises and fiber nonlinearities. Phase-Modulated Optical Communication Systems surveys this newly popular area, covering the following topics: Thetransmitter and receiver for phase-modulated coherent lightwave systems Method for performance analysis of phase-modulated optical signals Direct-detection DPSK signal with fiber nonlinearities, degraded by nonlinear phase noise andintrachannel effects Wavelength-division-multiplexed direct-detection DPSK signals Multi-level phase-modulated optical signals, s uch as the four-phase DQPSK signal Graduate students, professional engineers, and researchers will allbenefit from this updated treatment of an important topic in the optical communications field
