Multiscale modeling is necessary for the design of novel materials and devices. In this book, active international researchers describe approaches, applications, design, and results of different techniques across scales. The text emphasizes models that explicitly include the atomic scale, rather than including this scale via empirical parameters. Predictive and design capabilities of models are also explored, and the book includes applications involving electron and mass transport.

This book introduces a new graphs-based language called Formal Graphs for representing the mathematical equations found in a large number of scientific domains, including mechanics, physical chemistry, dynamics, solid state physics, rheology, surface energy, electrochemistry, and chemical reactivity. This elementary approach consists of drawing links and nodes on a graph, instead of writing algebraic equations. The graphs encourage a visual, unified comprehension of the relationships between physical concepts and variables, properties, and operators.

Usak University, Turkey Series: Textile Progress

R.A. Chapman

Fiber testing instruments must be very fast and accurate to be competitive. For example, the length, color, and trash content of hundreds of thousands of cotton bales should be tested within a very short period of time. Without having the data describing the properties of cotton fibers, cotton bales cannot be sold commercially in most countries. Many of the properties of cotton fibers can be assessed by using a HVI fiber-testing instrument. This book covers the historical perspective of fiber friction studies and fiber friction measurement-testing devices.

One of the fastest growing and most exciting sectors of the textiles market, nonwovens offer a broad spectrum of end uses, ranging from medical products to interior textiles. This book focuses on the variety of technical nonwoven applications available. Part One examines the fundamental principles of nonwoven fabrics, and includes topics such as the formation of nonwovens and the influence of fiber and fabric properties on nonwoven performance. Part Two provides valuable examples of how nonwoven materials can be used in a variety of textile products for apparel, filtration, and personal hygiene.

Hitoshi Ohmori, Ioan D. Marinescu, and Kazutoshi Katahira

Malgorzata Sopicka-Lizer

A complete review of Electorlytic-In-Process Dressing (ELID) fundamentals and applications, this book explains what ELID is and covers its development process since the early 90s from Japan. The author covers the basic fundamentals of ELID, the fundamentals of ELID grinding types, ELID grinding methods, ELID lap-grinding, ELID honing, ELID free form grinding, ultra/nanoprecision ELID, and Micro-ELID grinding. He examines how this process improves the surface characteristics of the processed piece, and why it is more efficient and productive than polishing and lapping.

Mechanochemical processing is a novel and cost-effective method of producing a wide range of nanopowders. It involves the use of conventional high energy ball mill to initiate chemical reactions and structural changes. The resulting nanopowders are then used in the production of ceramic and metallic components using sintering and other powder metallurgy techniques to produce net shape components. Without using mechanochemical processing, production of the precursor nanopowders would require significant energy inputs. This book focuses on this revolutionizing technique for the manufacture of many advanced materials.

Daniel Minoli

This work covers interrelated methods and tools of spherically oriented geomathematics and periodically reflected analytic number theory. It establishes multi-dimensional Euler and Poisson summation formulas corresponding to elliptic operators for the adaptive determination and calculation of formulas and identities of weighted lattice point numbers, in particular the non-uniform distribution of lattice points. The book presents multi-dimensional techniques for periodization, describes weighted lattice point and ball numbers in georelevant “potato-like” regions, and discusses radial and angular non-uniform lattice point distribution.

Covering new advances, theories, and techniques, this book reflects the range of questions being posed about post-production 3D mastering, delivery options, and home screens. Each chapter deals with a different stage of an end-to-end 3DTV system, including capture, representation, coding, transmission, and display. Discussing theory and application, the text covers stereoscopic and autostereoscopic techniques—the latter eliminating the need for special glasses and allowing for viewer movement. It also examines emerging holographic approaches, which have the potential to provide the truest three-dimensional images.

Edited by

An integral component of the Perspectives in Nanotechnology Series, this book is based primarily on a review of available social science evidence as well as the author’s research concerning public perceptions of nanotechnology. She applies lessons learned from other emerging technologies to help clarify and define the issues of risk and the public that accompany nanotechnology, and to suggest the challenges involved in managing those risks. The book demonstrates how the wide variety of nanotechnologies under development precludes reliance on a single approach.

This book is about VLSI micro/nanophotonics, which is meant to define photonic devices, circuits and subsystems in small sizes reaching down in scale to micron, submicron, nano-scale, and quantum-scale dimensions. This book examines issues concerning three essential steps in this technology: miniaturization, interconnection, and integration of microphotonic devices, circuits, and systems in micron or submicron scale. It highlights the technology’s advantages with respect to size as well as its ability to offer new and unexplored functions toward novel applications.

This book demonstrates the huge practical utility of another of these routes in explaining quantum phenomena in various research fields. Bohmian mechanics— the formulation of the quantum theory pioneered by Louis de Broglie and David Bohm—offers an alternative mathematical formulation of quantum phenomena in terms of quantum trajectories. It sheds light on the limits and extensions of our present understanding of quantum mechanics toward other paradigms, such as relativity or cosmology.

Every scientist and engineer encounters problems that may be solved at least in part using the principles of thermodynamics. The importance of thermodynamics is so fundamental to life that practitioners and researchers in a range of fields need a fairly detailed understanding of this core discipline. This clearly written, easy-to-follow guide allows even nonscientists considering the use of alternative fuel sources to achieve a solid grounding in thermodynamics. The authors cover topics spanning from energy sources to the environment to climate change.

Textbook

Data Management Using Stata A Practical Handbook Michael N. Mitchell

Biophotonics Research Institute, Highett, Australia

UCLA Academic Technology Services Consulting Group, Los Angeles, California, USA

This is the first text to be written on the topic of Self-Field Theory (SFT), a new mathematical description of physics distinct from quantum field theory, the physical theory of choice by physicists at the present time. SFT is a recent development that has evolved from the classical electromagnetics of the electron’s self-fields that were studied by Abraham and Lorentz in 1903-04. SFT is capable of obtaining closed-form solution for all atomic structures rather than the probabilistic solutions of QFT.

Using simple language and illustrative examples, this book comprehensively covers data management tasks that bridge the gap between raw data and statistical analysis. Rather than focus on clusters of commands, the author takes a modular approach that enables readers to quickly identify and implement the necessary task without having to access background information first. Each section presents a self-contained lesson that uses examples to illustrate a particular data management task, such as creating data variables and automating error-checking.
