Title:Thermodynamics [electronic resource] : For Physicists, Chemists and Materials Scientists
Author(s): Reinhard Hentschke
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Thermodynamics is the foundation of many-body physics and thus of physical chemistry and material science as well. Today new sources of useful energy, energy storage, transport and conversion, requiring development of noveltechnology, are of rapidly increasing importance. This development strongly affects modern industry. Thus thermodynamics will have to be given more prominence in the science curriculum in colleges and universities - something that isattempted in this book. The structure of this tex t is simple and transparent, enabling the easy mapping of the text onto a one-semester course syllabus and the attendant study. There are 8 chapters total and one three-part appendix.Throughout the text the student finds numerous examples (solved problems ) reaching from cosmic to molecular evolution or from cloud formation to Bose condensation
Contents:Two Fundamental Laws of Nature
Thermodynamic Functions
Equilibrium and Stability
Simple Phase Diagrams
Microscopic Interactions

Title:Telescopes and Techniques [electronic resource]
Author(s): C. R Kitchin
Date:2013
Edition:3rd ed. 2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Telescopes and Techniques has proved itself in its first two editions, having become probably one of the most widely used astronomy texts, both for amateur astronomers and astronomy and astrophysics undergraduates. Both earliereditions of the book we re widely used for introductory practical astronomy courses in many universities. In this Third Edition the author guides the reader through the mathematics, physics and practical techniques needed to use today'stelescopes (from the smaller models to the larger instruments installed in many colleges) and how to find objects in the sky. Most of the physics and engineering involved is described fully and requires little prior knowledge orexperience. Both visual and electronic imaging techniques are covered, together with an introduction to how data (measurements) should be processed and analyzed. A simple introduction to radio telescopes is also included. Briefcoverage of the more advanced topics of photometry and spectroscopy are included, but mainly to en able the reader to see some of the developments possible from the basic observing techniques covered in the rest of the book. For anyoneintending to enter astronomy as a professional, an understanding of the physics is essential - and this newest version of Telescopes and Techniques is one of the best starting points!

Title:New Eyes on the Sun [electronic resource] : A Guide to Satellite Images and Amateur Observation
Author(s): John Wilkinson
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Information collected by satellites recently sent by the USA, the European Space Agency, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Russia to monitor the Sun has changed our knowledge and understanding of the Sun, particularly itseffect on Earth. This b ook presents these findings in a way that will be welcomed by amateur astronomers, students, educators and anyone interested in the Sun. Enhanced by many colour photographs, the book combines newly acquiredscientific understanding with detailed descriptio ns of features visible on the Suns surface and in its atmosphere. In the past, observing the Sun has been left to academics with specialised instruments, since solar observation hasbeen unsafe because of the risk of eye damage. This book explains how amat eur astronomers can safely observe the various solar phenomena using special hydrogen-alpha telescopes that are not too expensive. Amateurs can now make apositive contribution to science by monitoring the Sun as professionals do. Amateurs can also access the solar images taken by satellites via the internet. This book helps readers interpret and understand what these images areshowing about the Sun, including the latest 3D images. Solar observers will enjoy comparing their own solar telescope observations with those produced by space probes such as SDO, SOHO, Hinode and STEREO, and further enjoy learningabout transits, eclipses, and space weather and how the Sun compares to other stars in the universe. The main purpose of this book is to present some of t he fascinating solar phenomena in their full splendor to readers through avariety of illustrations, photographs and easy to understand text. John Wilkinson is a science educator with over 30 years experience in teaching science, physics and chemistry in secondary colleges and universities in Australia. Heis author of over 100 science textbooks. He completed his Masters degree and PhD in science education at La Trobe University, Australia. Thro
