Phase Behavior of Petroleum Reservoir Fluids

This book discusses sampling, characterization, compositional analyses, and equations of state used to simulate various pressure–volume–temperature (PVT) properties of reservoir fluids. Developed in conjunction with several oil companies using experimental data for real reservoir fluids, this book introduces industry standard methods for modeling the phase behavior of petroleum reservoir fluids at different stages in the process.

Time in Powers of Ten : Natural Phenomena and Their Timescales

In 1957, Kees Boeke published an influential book, _Cosmic View: The Universe in 40 Jumps_, looking at where we live in different, wide-ranging scales. This was the precursor for the famous short film by Charles and Ray Eames, _Powers of Ten_, a mind-blowing view of scales subatomic to cosmic, each step of the way moving ten times further out or closer in. There are plenty of variations of this sort of scaling view of our universe av...

Quantum Nanochemistry, Volume One: Quantum Theory and Observability

Volume 1 of the 5-volume Quantum Nanochemistry set presents an overall perspective of nuclear, atomic, molecular, and solids structures, and the observability and quantum properties as based on the quantum principles in their various levels of applications, from Planck, Bohr, Einstein, Schrödinger, Hartree-Fock, up to Feynman Path Integral approaches. The volume presents in a balanced manner the fundamental and advanced concepts, pri...

At the Frontier of Particle Physics: Handbook of QCD Vol. 4

This is the fourth and last volume of the invaluable publication At the Frontier of Particle Physics: Handbook of QCD. In this volume the reader will find three important sections. The first is devoted to QCD-based phenomenology. It covers issues deeply woven into the fabric of particle physics: weak interactions of light quarks (J Bijnens) and heavy quarkonium physics (A Hoang). The second section is a report on recent advances in t...

Breakup of Liquid Sheets and Jets

The theme of this book is an exposition of what we know about the physicsunderlying the onset of instability in liquid sheets and jets. Wave motionand breakup phenomena subsequent to the onset of instability are alsocarefully explained. Physical concepts are established through rigorousmathematics, accurate numerical analyses and comparison of theory withexperiment. Exercises are provided for students new to the subject; and, researc...

Designing Audio Effect Plugins in C++: For AAX, AU, and VST3 with DSP Theory, Second Edition
PDF
Designing Audio Effect Plugins in C++

Book by Steven W. Smith, is an excellent introduction to audio dsp. The first version was a good book but it lacked a good intro to dsp theory and had several errors in the code. This version has been extensively rewritten with a much more detailed introduction to the theory and cleaned up code as well. Learning dsp theory is a big undertaking so pair this more practical book with the smith book to get the full picture.

Agnes Mary Clerke and the rise of astrophysics

"This first full-length biography of Clerke, a woman historian of astronomy of the last half of the 19th century, also details a significangt period in the rise of modern astrophysics with the development of larger and better telescopes, the use of photography in the mapping of the skies, and the invention of the spectroheliograph. Working primarily from archival sources, BrÜck has written a detailed, scholarly, and thorough account ...
