Theory of photon acceleration (plasma) (IOP 2000) by J.T Mendonca

By J.T Mendonca

SYNOPSISThe e-book describes a idea which has ruled the new theoretical plasma physics sector for the final 5-10 years and has stumbled on software in all topics the place waves in non-stop media are studied - plasma physics, astrophysics and optics. the final conception provided right here permits fluid, kinetic, quantum and classical electrodynamical ways to be formulated and examples are drawn from plasma physics, cosmology, fibre optics, mathematical physics, particle accelerator physics and radiation physics.This normal concept will offer a brand new smooth figuring out of photon interplay with subject for future years, and is the following offered by means of one of many significant avid gamers in its improvement in a transparent structure in an effort to make it obtainable to a wide selection of researchers. FROM THE CRITICSBooknewsThe thought of photon acceleration has chanced on software in matters the place waves in non-stop media are studied, comparable to plasma physics, astrophysics, and nonlinear optics. Mendonca (physics, Instituto improved Tecnico, Lisbon) provides an outline of this concept and comparable new techniques comparable to the powerful photon mass and the an identical photon cost or the photon Landau damping. 4 diverse theoretical ways to photon acceleration are thought of: unmarried photon trajectories, photon kinetic idea, classical complete wave types, and quantum concept. The innovations of time mirrored image and time refraction are also brought. Annotation c. ebook information, Inc., Portland, OR (

Ice Physics and the Natural Environment by J. S. Wettlaufer (auth.), John S. Wettlaufer, J. Gregory

By J. S. Wettlaufer (auth.), John S. Wettlaufer, J. Gregory Dash, Norbert Untersteiner (eds.)

The complicated learn Institute Ice Physics within the average and Endangered Environ­ ment used to be held at Acquafredda di Maratea, Italy, from September 7 to 19, 1997. The ASI was once designed to check the huge diversity of ice technology and expertise, and it introduced jointly an thoroughly interdisciplinary team of teachers and scholars to review the various elements of the topic. The talks and poster displays explored how easy molecular physics of ice have vital environmental results, and, con­ versely, how typical phenomena current new questions for primary research. The of lectures discusses those linkages, so that total solidarity of following sunimary the topic and this quantity will be perceived. now not all the academics and members have been in a position to give a contribution a written piece, yet their lively involvement was once the most important to the good fortune of the Institute and thereby encouraged the content material of the quantity. We all started the Institute by way of retracing the heritage of the quest for a microscopic un­ derstanding of melting. Our motivation was once elementary. approximately each phenome­ non related to ice within the setting is inspired by way of the swap of section from reliable to liquid or vice-versa. as a result, a sufficiently deep actual photo of the melting tran­ sition enriches our appreciation of an enormous array of geophysical and technical problems.

Physics of Negative Refraction and Negative Index Materials: by Dr. Yong Zhang, Angelo Mascarenhas (auth.), Dr. Clifford M.

By Dr. Yong Zhang, Angelo Mascarenhas (auth.), Dr. Clifford M. Krowne, Dr. Yong Zhang (eds.)

This publication bargains with the topic of optical and digital unfavourable refraction (NR) and unfavourable index fabrics NIM). various methods for attaining NR and NIM are lined, corresponding to utilizing photonic crystals, phononic crystals, split-ring resonators (SRRs) and non-stop media, focusing of waves, guided-wave habit, and nonlinear results. particular issues taken care of are polariton conception for LHMs (left passed materials), focusing of waves, guided-wave habit, nonlinear optical results, magnetic LHM composites, SRR-rod realizations, low-loss guided-wave bands utilizing SRR-rods unit cells as LHMs, NR of electromagnetic and digital waves in uniform media, box distributions in LHM guided-wave constructions, dielectric and ferroelectric NR bicrystal heterostructures, LH metamaterial photonic-crystal lenses, subwavelength focusing of LHM/NR photonic crystals, focusing of sound with NR and NIMs, and LHM quasi-crystal fabrics for focusing.

Processing of Solid–Liquid Suspensions by P. Ayazi Shamlou

By P. Ayazi Shamlou

In the course of such a lot method operations solids and drinks are introduced into touch for processing. How they behave in those events is of serious value to the method as a complete. according to the collective event of overseas industrialists and teachers who're energetic in primary and utilized learn, this booklet moves a stability among idea and alertness, and offers a compilation of the massive volume of various paintings within the processing of solid-liquid suspensions
