Turbulent Heating and Anisotropy in the Solar Wind: A Numerical Study

This book presents two important new findings. First, it demonstrates from first principles that turbulent heating offers an explanation for the non-adiabatic decay of proton temperature in solar wind. Until now, this was only proved with reduced or phenomenological models. Second, the book demonstrates that the two types of anisotropy of turbulent fluctuations that are

Mobile Robotics 2nd Edition

Mobile Robotics 2nd Edition Mobile Robotics presents the different tools and methods that enable the design of mobile robots; a discipline booming with the emergence of flying drones, underwater mine-detector robots, robot sailboats and vacuum cleaners. Illustrated with simulations, exercises and examples, this book describes the fundamentals of modeling robots, developing the concepts of actuators, sensors,

Mass Transfers and Physical Data Estimation 1st Edition

Mass Transfers and Physical Data Estimation 1st Edition Many practical operations, such as environment depollution, blood dialysis or product purification, require matter transfer. With an emphasis on the aforementioned subjects, this book revisits the founding principles of materials transfer on the basis of Fick’s first law, which constitutes the foundation of diffusional phenomena. Additionally, continuity equations

Electromagnetic Wave Absorbers: Detailed Theories and Applications 1st Edition

Electromagnetic Wave Absorbers: Detailed Theories and Applications 1st Edition Demands for various EM-wave absorbers are rapidly increasing along with recent trends toward complicated electromagnetic environments and development of higher-frequency communication equipment, including AI technology. This book provides a broad perspective on electromagnetic wave absorbers, as well as discussion of specific types of absorbers, their advantages and

Geomagnetically Induced Currents from the Sun to the Power Grid

Geomagnetically Induced Currents from the Sun to the Power Grid Geomagnetic storms are a type of space weather event that can create Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GICs) which, once they reach Earth’s surface, can interfere with power grids and transport infrastructure. Understanding the characteristics and impacts of GICs requires scientific insights from solar physics, magnetospheric physics,

Multi-Scale Reliability and Serviceability Assessment of In-Service Long-Span Bridges

Multi-Scale Reliability and Serviceability Assessment of In-Service Long-Span Bridges With the development in global economic and transportation engineering, the traffic loads on brides have been growing steadily, which become potential safety hazards for existing bridges. In particular, long-span suspension bridges support heavy traffic volumes and simultaneous truck loads on the bridge deck, and thus the

Reproducible Econometrics Using R

Reproducible Econometrics Using R Across the social sciences there has been increasing focus on reproducibility, i.e., the ability to examine a study’s data and methods to ensure accuracy by reproducing the study. Reproducible Econometrics Using R combines an overview of key issues and methods with an introduction to how to use them using open source software (R)
