Adaptive High-order Methods in Computational Fluid Dynamics

This book consists of important contributions by world-renowned experts on adaptive high-order methods in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It covers several widely used, and still intensively researched methods, including the discontinuous Galerkin, differential quadrature, residual distribution, spectral volume, spectral difference, flux reconstruction, and lifting collocation penalty methods. The main focus is applications in ae...

Thin Film Solar Cells: Current Status and Future Trends

Thin-film solar cells potentially offer a suitable technology for solving the energy production problem with an environmentally friendly method. Additionally, thin film technologies show advantages over their bulk-semiconductor counterparts due to their lighter weight, flexible shape, device fabrication schemes and low cost in large-scale industrial production. This book provides an international perspective on the latest research in...

Beyond the Einstein Addition Law and its Gyroscopic Thomas Precession: (Fundamental Theories of Physics)

This book is designed for those who are interested in mathematics and relativistic physics. In mathematics, group theory is often overemphasized where the associate law reigns supreme. However, there are many interesting algebraic structures that lack the associative property, but still contain the symmetry desired by mathematicians. These structures are the focus of quasigroups and loops. Quasigroups have been studied for centuries ...

The Cambridge Companion to Newton, 2 edition

'Taken as a whole this companion contains high-quality and up-to-date scholarship which will give the reader access to the different disciplines in which Newton was active in a representative way. This companion contains Newton scholarship at its best. In comparison with the first edition, Newton's so-called extra-scientific work now receives more attention. Even those who already possess a copy of the first edition should seriously ...

The Day-Glo Brothers: The True Story of Bob and Joe Switzer's Bright Ideas and Brand-New Colors

Starred Review. Grade 4–6—Before 1935, fluorescent colors did not exist. Barton discusses how two brothers worked together to create the eye-popping hues. Joe Switzer figured out that using a black light to create a fluorescent glow could spruce up his magic act, so the brothers built an ultraviolet lamp. They began to experiment with various chemicals to make glow-in-the-dark paints. Soon Joe used fluorescent-colored paper costumes ...

Acoustics and Psychoacoustics, 4th Edition

The acoustics of a space can have a real impact on the sounds you create and capture. Acoustics and Psychoacoustics gives you an essential grounding and understanding to how real music sounds behave in different spaces whether during a performance or a recording and how they are perceived by performers and listeners. With their clear and simple style, Howard and Angus address both theory and practice by addressing the science of soun...

Eddington's Search for a Fundamental Theory: A Key to the Universe

Ever since I was an undergraduate in physics at MIT in 1974 and found an obscure reference to Eddington's theory in another book (Applied Group Theoretic and Matrix Methods by Brian Higman), I've been reading Eddington's books and papers dealing with his theory and trying to understand his ideas. Finally there is a book that was written by someone who has studied them extensively, published papers dealing with them and obviously has ...
