  • The Tests of Timeby Lisa M. Dolling; Arthur F. Gianelli; Glenn N. Statile

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 78.50 US$ 71.44

    The development of physical theory is one of our greatest intellectual achievements. Its products--the currently prevailing theories of physics, astronomy, and cosmology--have proved themselves to possess intrinsic beauty and to have enormous explanatory and predictive power. This anthology of primary readings chronicles the birth and maturation of... more...

  • Monoethylene Glycol as Hydrate Inhibitor in Offshore Natural Gas Processingby Alexandre Mendonça Teixeira; Lara de Oliveira Arinelli; José Luiz de Medeiros; Ofélia de Queiroz Fernandes Araújo

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 51.36

    This book addresses several issues related to hydrate inhibition and monoethylene glycol (MEG) recovery units (MRUs) in offshore natural gas fields, from fundamentals to engineering aspects and from energy consumption assessment to advanced topics such as exergy analysis. The assessment of energy degradation in MRUs is critical in offshore rigs, and... more...

  • Meghnad Sahaby Pramod V. Naik

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 71.66

    This biography is a short yet comprehensive overview of the life of Meghnad Saha, the mastermind behind the frequently used Saha equations and a strong contributor to the foundation of science in India. The author explores the lesser known details behind the man who played a major role in building scientific institutions in India, developed the breakthrough... more...

  • Non-equilibrium Evaporation and Condensation Processesby Yuri B. Zudin

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 119.45

    This monograph presents a comprehensive treatment of analytical solutions to problems in the area of non-equilibrium evaporation and condensation processes. The book covers, among others, topics such as systems of conversation equations for molecular fluxes of mass, momentum and energy within the Knudsen layer, spherical growth of vapor bubbles in... more...

  • First Measurement of Neutrino and Antineutrino Oscillation at T2Kby Kirsty Elizabeth Duffy

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 103.92

    This thesis reports the measurement of muon neutrino and antineutrino disappearance and electron neutrino and antineutrino appearance in a muon neutrino and antineutrino beam using the T2K experiment. It describes a result in neutrino physics that is a pioneering indication of charge-parity (CP) violation in neutrino oscillation; the first to be obtained... more...

  • Thermodynamikby Herbert Windisch

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2017; US$ 45.99

    Studierende der Ingenieurwissenschaften, insbesondere des Maschinenbaus an Fachhochschulen, Berufsakademien und technischen Universitäten, schätzen die große Stärke dieses Buchs, nämlich das didaktisch klare Konzept mit Lernzieldefinition und Lernzielkontrolle, besonders. Alltagserfahrungen bilden den Ausgangspunkt: Das erleichtert den Einstieg in... more...

  • Turbulence and Interactionsby Michel O. Deville; Vincent Couaillier; Jean-Luc Estivalezes; Vincent Gleize; Thiên HiêpLê; Marc Terracol; Stéphane Vincent

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 179.18

    This book presents a snapshot of the state-of-art in the field of turbulence modeling, with an emphasis on numerical methods. Topics include direct numerical simulations, large eddy simulations, compressible turbulence, coherent structures, two-phase flow simulation and many more. It includes both theoretical contributions and experimental works, as... more...

  • Silicon Anodization as a Structuring Techniqueby Alexey Ivanov

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2017; US$ 71.66

    Alexey Ivanov investigates the application of a silicon anodization process as a three-dimensional structuring technique, where silicon is transformed into porous silicon as a sacrificial layer or directly dissolved in electropolishing regime. The work contains a detailed state of the art, experimental studies and modeling of the process for basic... more...

  • Plasma Physicsby Alexander Piel

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 89.58

    The enlarged new edition of this textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the basic processes in plasmas and demonstrates that the same fundamental concepts describe cold gas-discharge plasmas, space plasmas, and hot fusion plasmas. Starting from particle drifts in magnetic fields, the principles of magnetic confinement fusion are explained... more...

  • Symmetry in Complex Network Systemsby Visarath In; Antonio Palacios

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2017; US$ 155.29

    This book bridges the current gap between the theory of symmetry-based dynamics and its application to model and analyze complex systems. As an alternative approach, the authors use the symmetry of the system directly to formulate the appropriate models, and also to analyze the dynamics. Complex systems with symmetry arise in a wide variety of fields,... more...
