The Geometrical Language of Continuum Mechanics by Marcelo Epstein

By Marcelo Epstein

Epstein provides the elemental techniques of recent differential geometry in the framework of continuum mechanics. Divided into 3 components of approximately equivalent size, the ebook opens with a motivational bankruptcy to provoke upon the reader that differential geometry is certainly the usual language of continuum mechanics or, greater nonetheless, that the latter is a first-rate instance of the applying and materialisation of the previous. within the moment half, the basic notions of differential geometry are offered with rigor utilizing a writing type that's as casual as attainable. Differentiable manifolds, tangent bundles, external derivatives, Lie derivatives, and Lie teams are illustrated when it comes to their mechanical interpretations. The 3rd half comprises the idea of fiber bundles, G-structures, and groupoids, that are acceptable to our bodies with inner constitution and to the outline of fabric inhomogeneity. The summary notions of differential geometry are therefore illuminated by way of sensible and intuitively significant engineering applications.

Chemical Thermodynamics: An Introduction by Ernö Keszei

By Ernö Keszei

This course-derived undergraduate textbook presents a concise rationalization of the most important strategies and calculations of chemical thermodynamics. rather than the standard ‘classical’ creation, this article adopts a simple postulatory process that introduces thermodynamic potentials comparable to entropy and effort extra at once and transparently.

Structured round numerous gains to help scholars’ knowing, Chemical Thermodynamics :

  • Develops purposes and strategies for the prepared remedy of equilibria on a valid quantitative basis.
  • Requires minimum historical past in calculus to appreciate the textual content and provides formal derivations to the coed in a close yet comprehensible way.
  • Offers end-of-chapter difficulties (and solutions) for self-testing and assessment and reinforcement, of use for self- or workforce study.

This publication is appropriate as crucial examining for classes in a  bachelor and grasp chemistry software and is additionally useful as a reference or  textbook for college kids of physics, biochemistry and fabrics technological know-how.

Vibration of Nearly Periodic Structures and Mistuned Bladed by Alok Sinha

By Alok Sinha

this can be the 1st complete quantity on approximately periodic constructions and mistuned blade vibration. Alok Sinha provides primary innovations and state of the art concepts within the research of loose and compelled reaction of a virtually periodic constitution, weaving jointly his personal paintings (covering thirty-five years of study during this box) with works through different researchers. He additionally discusses similarities among instruments utilized in bladed rotor research and condensed topic physics. particular matters coated comprise the explanations at the back of mode localization, the explanations at the back of amplitude amplification of steady-state reaction, state of the art computational innovations for mistuned bladed rotors together with multistage rotors, id of mistuning from measured reaction, vibration localization in linear atomic chains, and research of two-dimensional periodic structures.

An Introduction to Quantum Communication by Vinod K. Mishra

By Vinod K. Mishra

Quantum mechanics is the main winning thought for describing the micro-world of photons, atoms, and their aggregates. it's in the back of a lot of the successes of the trendy know-how. It has deep philosophical implications to the basic nature of fabric fact. a couple of many years in the past it was once additionally discovered that it really is attached to the pc technology and knowledge concept. With this knowing was once born the hot disciplines of quantum computing and quantum conversation. the present e-book introduces the very fascinating zone of quantum communique which lies on the intersection of quantum mechanics, details thought, and atomic physics. The proper suggestions of those disciplines are defined and their implication for the duty of unbreakably safe communique is elucidated. Mathematical formula of varied techniques are defined and try has been made to maintain the exposition self-contained.
