Combining laboratory experience with research and policy developments, this book provides an insight into the historical background of marine monitoring, its regulatory frameworks and sciencepolicy interactions. With experience in the European Commission, the author draws from practical experience in research and policy implementation to present a concise review of marine monitoring on...




Originally published in 1928, this book discusses, debates and deliberates the many discoveries of modern physics.




Originally published in 1903, this dynamic textbook introduces the theoretical and practical side of electricity and magnetism.




Radioastronomical Tools and Techniques presents methods of processing radioastronomical data and also reviews current developments in equipment, radioastronomical antennae and observation techniques. The volume comprises of two parts:  Space projects which consists of papers contributing to the ongoing groundspace radiointerferometer RadioAstron VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry) project...





Originally published in 1926, this textbook provides a detailed and engaging introduction on the theory of electricity.




Starting from the beginning, this book teaches the fundamentals of polarization along with the advanced information needed for performing and intercepting accurate polarization methods. Developed for the senior undergraduate, graduate, and advanced course of polarization optical design, this carefully thought out and classroom tested text keeps the students in mind. Problem sets, worked...




Covering essential areas of thermal physics, this book includes kinetic theory, classical thermodynamics, and quantum thermodynamics. The text begins by explaining fundamental concepts of the kinetic theory of gases, viscosity, conductivity, diffusion, and the laws of thermodynamics and their applications. It then goes on to discuss applications of thermodynamics to problems of physics and...




Many molecular electronic structure studies are performed within nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, although there has been a recognition of the importance of relativistic effects of molecules. This work descibes theoretical and computational apparatus fo




This book provides a systematic, comprehensive and uptodate account of the recent developments in noncommutative geometry, at a pedagogical level. It does not go into the details of rigorous (advanced level) mathematical formulation of noncommutative geometry; rather, it restricts itself to the domain of strings and quantum fields.Since noncommutative geometry has recently aroused renewed...




Reflecting on the explosion of research activities in this field over the last decade, this edition has been substantially expanded.

This book is a singlesource guide to nonlinearity and nonlinear techniques in energy harvesting, with a focus on vibration energy harvesters for micro and nanoscale applications. The authors demonstrate that whereas nonlinearity was avoided as an undesirable phenomenon in early energy harvesters, now it can be used as an essential part of these systems. Readers will benefit from an overview of...




This text on radiation detection and measurement is a response to numerous requests expressed by students at various universities, in which the most popularly used books do not provide adequate background material, nor explain matters in understandable terms. This work provides a modern overview of radiation detection devices and radiation measurement methods. The topics selected in...




This book covers all important topics of optical fiber communications in detail, with an emphasis on applications and userfriendly features.




Originally published in 1915, this textbook was written by English mathematician Harry Bateman (18821946) and 'is intended as an introduction to some recent developments of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory which are directly connected with the solution of the partial differential equation of wavemotion'. Notably, 'the higher developments of the theory which are based on the dynamical equations...





This book is open access under a CC BYNC 4.0 license. The third edition of this indispensable book in radio interferometry provides extensive updates to the second edition, including results and technical advances from the past decade; discussion of arrays that now span the full range of the radio part of the electromagnetic spectrum observable from the ground, 10 MHz to 1 THz; an...




This volume contains a collection of papers based on lectures delivered by distinguished mathematicians at Clay Mathematics Institute events over the past few years. It is intended to be the first in an occasional series of volumes of CMI lectures. Although not explicitly linked, the topics in this inaugural volume have a common flavour and a common appeal to all who are interested in recent...




This book contains lecture notes by world experts on one of the most rapidly growing fields of research in physics. Topological quantum phenomena are being uncovered at unprecedented rates in novel material systems. The consequences are far reaching, from the possibility of carrying currents and performing computations without dissipation of energy, to the possibility of realizing platforms for...
