Electromagnetic Waves and Lasers Ed 2


Wayne D Kimura, "Electromagnetic Waves and Lasers Ed 2"
English | ISBN: 0750335211 | 2020 | 158 pages | PDF | 31 MB
Electromagnetic Waves and Lasers reviews electromagnetic wave theory with a special emphasis on lasers and how to use them in optical systems. As a short treatise on this subject matter, this book aims to offer a quick overview that will allow the reader to gain a competent general understanding of electromagnetic waves and lasers, and how to use lasers in optical systems. Beginning with an introduction on electromagnetic waves, the book progresses to examine the application of electromagnetic wave theory, and the different aspects of working with lasers and their associated components. This second edition includes detailed information and procedures for setting up a laser optical system making it an excellent guide for those involved with using lasers.

Waves of Global Terrorism From 1879 to the Present


David Rapoport, "Waves of Global Terrorism: From 1879 to the Present"
English | ISBN: 0231133030 | 2022 | 448 pages | PDF | 3 MB
Terrorism is a persistent form of political violence, but it appears intermittently, afflicting certain places in certain eras while others remain unscathed. Since the late nineteenth century, it has risen and fallen in recurrent generation-long spasms in which hundreds of short-lived groups wreak havoc. Why have past outbreaks of terror tended to come in waves, and how does this pattern shed light on future threats?

The High Energy Solar Corona Waves, Eruptions, Particles


The High Energy Solar Corona: Waves, Eruptions, Particles by Karl-Ludwig Klein, Alexander L. MacKinnon
English | PDF | 2007 | 288 Pages | ISBN : 354071569X | 20.1 MB
An outgrowth of a workshop held by the Community of European Solar Radio Astronomers (CESRA), this volume collects reviews on current research and perspectives on the variable solar corona: high-energy particles, large-scale disturbances such as mass ejections and waves, and radio diagnostics of the coronal plasma. Multiwavelength observations of the Sun with radio instruments and recent space missions are drawn on extensively, as well as input from neighbouring fields e.g. solar wind, Earth’s bow shock. Recent developments are discussed alongside key developments in this rapidly evolving field.

Making Waves The Story of Ruby Payne-Scott Australian Pioneer Radio Astronomer


Making Waves: The Story of Ruby Payne-Scott: Australian Pioneer Radio Astronomer by M Goss
English | PDF | 2013 | 276 Pages | ISBN : 3642357512 | 6.2 MB
This book is an abbreviated, partly re-written version of "Under the Radar – The First Woman in Radio Astronomy: Ruby Payne-Scott." It addresses a general readership interested in historical and sociological aspects of astronomy and presents the biography of Ruby Payne-Scott (1912 – 1981). As the first female radio astronomer (and one of the first people in the world to consider radio astronomy), she made classic contributions to solar radio physics.

My Journey with Shock Waves


My Journey with Shock Waves
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9811937117 | 316 Pages | PDF EPUB (True) | 23 MB
This book compiles historical notes and a review of the work of the author and his associates on shock compression of condensed matter (SCCM). The work includes such topics as foundational aspects of SCCM, thermodynamics, thermodynamics of defects, and plasticity as they relate to shock compression, shock-induced phase transition, and shock compaction. Also included are synthesis of refractory and hard ceramic compounds such as Ni aluminides, SiC and diamonds, method of characteristics, discrete element methods, the shock compression process at the grain scale, and modeling shock-to-detonation transition in high explosives.

The Physics of Vibrations and Waves


The Physics of Vibrations and Waves by H. John Pain
English | March 15, 2013 | ISBN: N/A | ASIN: B00XCHACHY | 570 pages | PDF | 2.14 Mb
The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics.

Recent Developments in Using Seismic Waves as a Probe for Subsurface Investigations Theory and Practices


Recent Developments in Using Seismic Waves as a Probe for Subsurface Investigations Theory and Practices
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9781003177692 | 438 pages | True PDF | 55.93 MB
Seismology has come a long way. Being the scientific study of seismic waves and their allied phenomena, it has entered a multidisciplinary realm. As the main tool, it provides a wealth of information when applied systematically to dig inside the Earth structure. Notwithstanding, the utility of seismic waves has increased manifold. Starting from knowing the epicenter of seismic events, it has influenced mapping of civil engineering structures such as dams and bridges, as well as huge constructions. Although there is no dearth of technical papers in the area of seismic waves, there is an absence of synchronized and recent coherent contents in the direction of seismic waves.
