    Handbook of Culture, Therapy, and Healing
    Published: 2004-04-08 | ISBN: 0805849246 | PDF | 433 pages | 30 MB

    Emotional, as well as physical distress, is a heritage from our hominid ancestors; it has been experienced by every group of human beings since our emergence as a species. And every known culture has developed systems of conceptualization and intervention for addressing it.
    The editors have brought together leading psychologists, psychiatrists, anthropologists, and others to consider the interaction of psychosocial, biological, and cultural variables as they influence the assessment of health and illness and the course of therapy.

    The Local Group as an Astrophysical Laboratory
    Published: 2006-07-24 | ISBN: 0521847591 | PDF | 238 pages | 8 MB

    The Local Group of galaxies consists of the Milky Way and all of its neighbors. The proximity of these galaxies allows for detailed studies of the processes that have led to their formation, structures, and evolution. In particular, studies of the Local Group can test predictions of structure formation that are based on dark energy and cold dark matter. This book presents a collection of review papers, written by world experts, on some of the most important aspects of Local Group Astrophysics. It is an invaluable resource for both professional researchers and graduate students in this cutting-edge area of research.

    High-Temperature Superconductivity in Cuprates: The Nonlinear Mechanism and Tunneling Measurements
    Published: 2002-07-31 | ISBN: 1402008104 | PDF | 317 pages | 10 MB

    The main purpose of the book is to present a description of the mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity and to discuss the physics of high-temperature superconductors, both entirely based on experimental facts. The pairing mechanism of this remarkable phenomenon is based on an anomaly found in tunneling (V) characteristics of some cuprates. By using the soliton theory, it is then shown that this anomaly is caused by pairs of quasi-one dimensional excitations - bisolitons - bound due to a moderately strong, nonlinear electron-phonon interaction. At the same time, analysis of experimental data unambiguously shows that magnetic (spin) fluctuations mediate the phase coherence in cuprates. The mechanism of superconductivity in quasi-one dimensional organic superconductors and heavy fermions is discussed too. In cuprates, the origins of five different energy/temperature scales are identified. Finally, three main principles of superconductivity are introduced at the end of the book. Analysis of tunneling and angle-resolved photoemission measurements is presented in the last chapter. The book which contains 300 pages with 180 illustrations is addressed to researchers and graduate students in all branches of exact sciences.

    Hidden Harmony - Geometric Fantasies: The Rise of Complex Function Theory
    Published: 2013-07-02 | ISBN: 1461457246 | PDF | 824 pages | 7 MB

    Hidden Harmony—Geometric Fantasies describes the history of complex function theory from its origins to 1914, when the essential features of the modern theory were in place. It is the first history of mathematics devoted to complex function theory, and it draws on a wide range of published and unpublished sources. In addition to an extensive and detailed coverage of the three founders of the subject—Cauchy, Riemann, and Weierstrass—it looks at the contributions of great mathematicians from d’Alembert to Poincaré, and Laplace to Weyl.
    Select chapters examine the rise and importance of elliptic function theory, differential equations in the complex domain, geometric function theory, and the early years of complex function theory in several variables. Unique emphasis has been placed on the creation of a textbook tradition in complex analysis by considering some seventy textbooks in nine different languages. This book is not a mere sequence of disembodied results and theories, but offers a comprehensive picture of the broad cultural and social context in which the main players lived and worked by paying attention to the rise of mathematical schools and of contrasting national traditions.

    Atmospheric Effects in Space Geodesy (Springer Atmospheric Sciences)
    Published: 2013-06-27 | ISBN: 3642369316 | PDF | 300 pages | 5 MB

    Various effects of the atmosphere have to be considered in space geodesy and all of them are described and treated consistently in this textbook. Two chapters are concerned with ionospheric and tropospheric path delays of microwave and optical signals used by space geodetic techniques, such as the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI), or Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR). It is explained how these effects are best reduced and modelled to improve the accuracy of space geodetic measurements. Other chapters are on the deformation of the Earth’s crust due to atmospheric loading, on atmospheric excitation of Earth rotation, and on atmospheric effects on gravity field measurements from special satellite missions such as CHAMP, GRACE, and GOCE. All chapters have been written by staff members of the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation at TU Wien who are experts in the particular fields.

    Discrete-Time Control System Analysis and Design, Volume 71: Advances in Theory and Applications
    Published: 1995-10-03 | ISBN: 0120127717 | PDF | 349 pages | 10 MB

    Effective control concepts and applications date back over millennia. One very familiar example of this is the windmill. It was designed to derive maximum benefit from windflow, a simple but highly effective optimization technique. Harold Hazen's 1932 paper in the Journal of the Franklin Institute was one of the earlier reference points wherein an analytical framework for modem control theory was established. There were many other notable landmarks along the way, including the MIT Radiation Laboratory Series volume on servomechanisms, the Brown and Campbell book, Principles of Servomechanisms, and Bode's book entitled Nem'ork Analysis and Syntheses Techniques, all published shortly after mid-1945.

    Measure, Topology, and Fractal Geometry (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)
    Published: 2007-12-20 | ISBN: 0387747486 | PDF | 272 pages | 8 MB

    Based on a course given to talented high-school students at Ohio University in 1988, this book is essentially an advanced undergraduate textbook about the mathematics of fractal geometry. It nicely bridges the gap between traditional books on topology/analysis and more specialized treatises on fractal geometry. The book treats such topics as metric spaces, measure theory, dimension theory, and even some algebraic topology. It takes into account developments in the subject matter since 1990. Sections are clear and focused. The book contains plenty of examples, exercises, and good illustrations of fractals, including 16 color plates.
