Biofuels: Status And Perspective Ed.

This volume presents the progress of first and second generation biofuel production technology in selected countries. The book shows also some aspects of the environmental impact of the production and biofuels using, and describes perspectives of biofuel production technology development. It provides the review of biorefinery processes with a particular focus on pretreatment methods of selected primary and secondary raw materials. Th...

Statistical Mechanics (frontiers In Physics)

Physics, rather than mathematics, is the focus in this classic graduate lecture note volume on statistical mechanics and the physics of condensed matter. This book provides a concise introduction to basic concepts and a clear presentation of difficult topics, while challenging the student to reflect upon as yet unanswered questions. when i was undergrad, i read Prof. Kerson Huang's stat mech. i think that book is good. everything is ...

Ion Exchange: Studies And Applications Ed

This book provides broad coverage of ion exchange and its applications.Different chapters focus on the importance of ion exchange applications such as strengtening dental porcelains, gradient changes in glass refraction, and resins as effective sorbents. Each chapter includes a brief historical overview of ion exchange and its applications. The authors also give a brief overview of these applications as well as review current experim...

Advanced Fiber Optics

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the field of modern fiber optics, beginning with the basics of the field summarized in an introductory chapter. Expert contributors then topics such as polarization effects in optical fibers; photonic crystal fibers; highly-doped optical fibers; non-linear effects; amplification and lasing in optical fibers; supercontinuum generation, Rayleigh and inelastic scattering with applications ...

Chaos And Nonlinear Dynamics: An Introduction For Scientists And Engineers

This is an accessible and readable introductory textbook on chaos and nonlinear dynamics. It focuses on the ideas behind the theory of chaos, rather than on the details of the mathematics which can sometimes hinder rather than help the reader gain real insight into the mechanisms of nonlinear systems. By this I do not mean that the author skips over the required mathematics. The text is intended for people with a solid background in ...

Decommissioning Health Physics: A Handbook For Marssim Users (2nd Edition)

This book is the most complete treatment of the topic I’ve seen―including chapters on virtually every aspect of MARSSIM as well as problems to solve and worked-out solutions for many of them in the back (making it a great textbook on the topic for anyone teaching a graduate class or short course on the topic). It’s also a great reference since the chapters include equations, reference tables and plots, and a nice selection of case st...

Carbohydrates: Comprehensive Studies On Glycobiology And Glycotechnology Ed.

This comprehensive book is to readers who are interested in carbohydrates. This book contains excellent chapters written by experts from the fields of chemistry, glycobiology, microbiology, immunology, botany, zoology, as well as biotechnology. This book also offers much in the way of experiences, tools, and technologies for readers who are interested in different fields of Glycobiology. The readers can obtain more than anticipated f...

Physics Project Lab

This book is the result of many years of experience of the authors in guiding physics projects. It aims to satisfy a deeply felt need to involve students and their instructors in extended experimental investigations of physical phenomena. Over fifty extended projects are described in detail, at various levels of sophistication, aimed at both the advanced high school, as well as first and second year undergraduate physics students, an...
