Title:The Vitreous State [electronic resource] Thermodynamics, Structure, Rheology, and Crystallization
Author(s): Ivan S Gutzow

Date:2013
Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book summarizes the experimental evidence and modern classical and theoretical approaches in understanding the vitreous state, from structural problems, over equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, to statisticalphysics. Glasses, and esp ecially silicate glasses, are only the best known representatives of this particular physical state of matter. Other typical representatives include organic polymer glasses, and many other easily vitrifyingorganic and inorganic substances, technically imp ortant materials, amidst them vitreous water and vitrified aqueous solutions, and also many metallic alloy systems. Some of these systems only form glasses under particular conditions,e.g. through ultra-rapid cooling. This book describes the properties an d the formation of both every-day technical glasses and especially of such more exotic forms of vitreous matter. Itis a unique source of knowledge and new ideasfor materials scientists, engineers and researchers working on condensed matter. The new editio n emphasizes latest experimental findings and modern theories, explaining the kinetics of glass formation, the relaxation and stabilizationof glasses and their crystallization in terms of new models, derived from the framework of the thermodynamics of irr eversible processes. It shows how the properties of common technical glasses, window glass, or the vitreous ice kernelof comets can be used to develop a new understanding of the existence of matter in various, unusualforms. The developed theoretical model scan find application even in the description of lasers and in unusual processes in theuniverse

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complexity occurs in biological and synthetic systems alike. This general phenomenon has been addressed in recent publications by investigators in disciplines ranging from chemistry and biology to psychology and philosophy.Studies of complexity for m olecular scientists have focussed on breaking symmetry, dissipative processes, and emergence. Investigators in the social and medical sciences have focused on neurophenomenology, cognitive approaches andself-consciousness. Complexity in both structure and function is inherent in many scientific disciplines of current significance and also in technologies of current importance that are rapidly evolving to address global societalneeds. Several of these multifaceted scientific disciplines are addressed in th is book including complexity from the general and philosophical perspective, magnetic phenomena, control of self assembly and function in largemulticomponent clusters, application of theory to probe structure and mechanism in highly complex molecular spec ies, and the design of multifunctional nanoscale molecules of value in decontamination and solar fuels research. Eachchapter is both a review and addresses some ongoing challenges, thus each should provide a good preparation for further work in these high ly active areas of research endeavour.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mathematical modelsincluding those based on ordinary, partial differential, integral, and integro-differential equationsare indispensable tools for studying the physical world and its natural manifestations. Because of theusefulness of these models, it is critical for practitioners to be able to find their solutions by analytic and/or computational means. This two-volume set is a collection of up-to-date research results that illustrate how a veryimportant class of mathematical tools can be manipulat ed and applied to the study of real-life phenomena and processes occurring in specific problems of science and engineering. The two volumes contain 65 chapters, which are based ontalks presented by reputable researchers in the field at the Tenth Internati onal Conference on Integral Methods in Science and Engineering. The chapters address a wide variety of methodologies, from the construction of boundaryintegral methods to the application of integration-based analytic and computational techniques in almost all aspects of today's technological world. Among the topics covered are deformable structures, traffic flow, acoustic wavepropagation, spectral procedures, eutrophication of bodies of water, pollutant dispersion, spinal cord movement, submarine avalanch es, and many others with an interdisciplinary flavor. Integral Methods in Science and Engineering,Volumes 1 and 2 are useful references for a broad audience of professionals, including pure and applied mathematicians, physicists, biologists, and mechanica l, civil, and electrical engineers, as well as graduate students, who useintegration as a fundamental technique in their research.

Title:Scattering from Model Nonspherical Particles [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications to Environmental Physics
Author(s): Ferdinando Borghese
Paolo Denti

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 scattering of electromagnetic radiation by nonspherical particles has become an increasingly important research topic over the past 20 years. Instead of handling anisotropic particles of arbitrary shape, the authors considerthe more amenable prob lem of aggregates of spherical particles. This is often a very satisfactory approach as the optical response of nonspherical particles depends more on their general symmetry and the quantity of refractive materialthan on the precise details of their shape . The book addresses a wide spectrum of applications, ranging from scattering properties of water droplets containing pollutants, atmospheric aerosols and ice crystals to the modeling of cosmicdust grains as aggregates. In this extended second edition the authors have encompassed all the new topics arising from their recent studies of cosmic dust grains. Thus many chapters were deeply revised and new chapters were added. Thenew material spans The description of the state of polarization of electromagnetic waves of general form The conservation theorems of combined systems of fields and particles The appropriate multipole expansion for waves of generalwave vector and of general state of polarization A number of new applications The effects of radiation pre ssure and radiation torque on cosmic dust grains A study of the morphology of cosmic dust grains and of the distribution andpolarization of the electromagnetic field in the interior of aggregated dust grains

Title:Functional Approach to Nonlinear Models of Water Flow in Soils [electronic resource]
Author(s): Gabriela Marinoschi
Date:2006
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a work of applied mathematics focusing on the functional study of the nonlinear boundary value problems relating to water flow in porous media. As far as revealed by the literature, a systematic study of these modelswithin the above ment ioned framework has not been done and the book has been written with the belief that the abstract theory may be sometimes easier and richer in consequences for applications than standard classical approaches are.The volume deals with diffusion type models and emphasizes the mathematical treatment of their nonlinear aspects. A unifying functional approach to different boundary value problems modelling the water movement in porous media ispresented, and the high degree of generality and abstraction, kept ho wever within reasonable limits, is rewarded by the richness of the results obtained in this way. From the mathematical point of view the results obtained can beconsidered as general results in the theory of nonlinear parabolic equations. Although water fl ow in soils was the principal exemplification for the functional treatment, the techniques used within the book and the results obtainedhere turn out useful for studying other appropriate problems arising in general in the movement of fluids in porous med ia, in the heat theory, phase transitions, biology, chemistry or engineering

Note:Stars are born and die in clouds of gas and dust, opaque to most types of radiation, but transparent in the infrared. Requiring complex detectors, space missions and cooled telescopes, infrared astronomy is the last branch of thisdiscipline to come o f age. After a very successful sky survey performed in the eighties by the IRAS satellite, the Infrared Space Observatory, in the nineties, brought spectacular advances in the understanding of the processes givingrise to powerful infrared emission by a gr eat variety of celestial sources. Outstanding results have been obtained on the bright comet Hale-Bopp, and in particular of its water spectrum, as well as on the formation, chemistry anddynamics of planetary objects in the solar system. Ideas on the earl y stages of stellar formation and on the stellar initial mass function have been clarified. ISO is the first facility in space able to provide a systematic diagnosisof the physical phenomena and the chemistry in the close environment of pre-main sequence stars, in the interstellar medium, and in the final stages of stellar life, using, among other indicators, molecular hydrogen, ubiquitouscrystalline silicates, water and ices. ISO has dramatically increased our ability to investigate the power production, excitation and fuelling mechanism of galaxies of every type, and has discovered a new very cold dust component ingalaxies. ISO has demonstrated that luminous infrared galaxies were brighter and much more numerous in the past, and that they played a domin ant role in shaping present day galaxies and in producing the cosmic infrared background
