Mr. Docker Is off His Rocker!

Something weird is going on! Mr. Docker must be a mad scientist. He does nutty experiments and has an evil, demented, cackling laugh. Plus he invented a car that runs on potatoes! Mr. Docker is the weirdest science teacher ever! Is he trying to take over the world?

Snow, Ice and Other Wonders of Water

The book illustrates the fascinating world of the different forms of water from ice and snow to liquid water. The water molecule, H2O, is the second most common molecule in the Universe (behind hydrogen, H2) and ice is the most abundant solid material. Snow and ice appear in a countless large number of different shapes and with properties which can be quite different. Detailed knowledge of the properties of snow is of great importanc...

Recent Climate Change Impacts on Mountain Glaciers

Glaciers are considered a key and an iconic indicator of climate change. The World Glacier Monitoring Service has noted that global alpine balance has been negative for 35 consecutive years. This highlights the dire future that alpine glaciers face. The goal of this volume is to tell the story, glacier by glacier, of response to climate change from 1984-2015. Of the 165 glaciers examined in 10 different alpine regions, 162 have retre...

Winter School on Hadronic Physics

The main goal of the School is to present to young physicists the major open problems in hadronic physics in the confinement region, and to show that they are closely linked to similar open problems in nuclear physics and condensed matter. New experimental facilities and techniques related to the solution of the above problem are presented.

Virtual and Remote Control Tower

The interdisciplinary research and development work carried out in the last ten years which is presented in this book aimed at replacing the conventional airport control tower by a new “remote tower operation” work environment (RTO) which should enhance work efficiency and safety and reduce costs. This revolutionary human–system interface allows for remote aerodrome traffic control without a physical tower building and enables the es...

Hendee's Radiation Therapy Physics

The publication of this fourth edition, more than ten years on from the publication of Radiation Therapy Physics third edition, provides a comprehensive and valuable update to the educational offerings in this field. Led by a new team of highly esteemed authors, building on Dr Hendee’s tradition, Hendee’s Radiation Therapy Physics offers a succinctly written, fully modernised update. Radiation physics has undergone many changes in th...

Quantum Aspects of Light Propagation

Quantum Aspects of Light Propagation provides an overview of spatio-temporal descriptions of the electromagnetic field in linear and nonlinear dielectric media, appropriate to macroscopic and microscopic theories. Readers will find an introduction to canonical quantum descriptions of light propagation in a nonlinear dispersionless dielectric medium, and an approach to linear and nonlinear dispersive dielectric media. Illustrated by o...

On Angular Momentum (Dover Books on Physics)

A concise treatment of angular momentum by an important American physicist, this major work was first published under the auspices of the United States Atomic Energy Commission in 1952 and is finally available to a general audience of students and professionals in the field. Advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics will particularly benefit from its teachings. One of the most prominent American physicists of the twent...

In Praise of Simple Physics: The Science and Mathematics behind Everyday Questions

Physics can explain many of the things that we commonly encounter. It can tell us why the night is dark, what causes the tides, and even how best to catch a baseball. With In Praise of Simple Physics, popular math and science writer Paul Nahin presents a plethora of situations that explore the science and math behind the wonders of everyday life. Roaming through a diverse range of puzzles, he illustrates how physics shows us ways to ...
