TitleThe Muleskinner and the Stars : The Life and Times of Milton La Salle Humason, Astronomer
Author(s)Voller, Ronald L
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2016.
DescriptionXLV, 196 p. 48 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteMilt Humason???s unlikely story began on the shores of the Mississippi River in Winona, Minnesota, in 1891 and led to the foot of Mount Wilson outside Los Angeles, California, twelve years later. Captivated by his surroundings, the mountain would become the backdrop for his life and career over the next six decades as he first helped build George Ellery Hale???s observatory on the summit and then rose to become one of that institution???s leading figures through the first half of the twentieth century. ?? The story chronicles Humason???s life on Mount Wilson, from his first trip to the mountain to his days as a muleskinner, leading teams of mules hauling supplies to the summit during the construction of the observatory, and follows him through his extraordinary career in spectroscopy, working beside Edwin Hubble as the two helped to reconstruct our concept of the universe, despite having no formal education beyond the eighth grade. His work, which included assisting in the formulation of Hubble???s Law of redshifts, helped to set the field of cosmology solidly on its foundation. ?? Milton Humason was one of the most charismatic characters in science during the first half of the 20th century. Uneducated, streetwise, moonshining, roguish, humble and thoroughly down to earth, he rose by seizing opportunity and using his innate ability and incredible will to become the leading deep space observer of his day. ???The Renaissance man of Mount Wilson,??? as Harlow Shapley once referred to him, Humason???s extraordinary life reminds us that passion and purpose may find us at any moment

TitleQuantum-Limit Spectroscopy
Author(s)Ficek, Zbigniew;Tana??, Ryszard
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2017.
DescriptionXVII, 376 p. 102 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book covers the main ideas, methods, and recent developments of quantum-limit optical spectroscopy and applications to quantum information, resolution spectroscopy, measurements beyond quantum limits, measurement of decoherence, and entanglement. Quantum-limit spectroscopy lies at the frontier of current experimental and theoretical techniques, and is one of the areas of atomic spectroscopy where the quantization of the field is essential to predict and interpret the existing experimental results. Currently, there is an increasing interest in quantum and precision spectroscopy both theoretically and experimentally, due to significant progress in trapping and cooling of single atoms and ions. This progress allows one to explore in the most intimate detail the ways in which light interacts with atoms and to measure spectral properties and quantum effects with high precision. Moreover, it allows one to perform subtle tests of quantum mechanics on the single atom and single photon scale which were hardly even imaginable as ``thought experiments'' a few years ago.

TitleClassical Mechanics with Maxima
Author(s)Timberlake, Todd Keene;Mixon, J. Wilson
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2016.
DescriptionXI, 258 p. 156 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book guides undergraduate students in the use of Maxima???a computer algebra system???in solving problems in classical mechanics. It functions well as a supplement to a typical classical mechanics textbook. When it comes to problems that are too difficult to solve by hand, computer algebra systems that can perform symbolic mathematical manipulations are a valuable tool. Maxima is particularly attractive in that it is open-source, multiple-platform software that students can download and install free of charge. Lessons learned and capabilities developed using Maxima are easily transferred to other, proprietary software

Abstract NoteThe revised second edition of this textbook provides the reader with a solid foundation in probability theory and statistics as applied to the physical sciences, engineering and related fields. It covers a broad range of numerical and analytical methods that are essential for the correct analysis of scientific data, including probability theory, distribution functions of statistics, fits to two-dimensional data and parameter estimation, Monte Carlo methods and Markov chains. Features new to this edition include: ??? a discussion of statistical techniques employed in business science, such as multiple regression analysis of multivariate datasets. ??? a new chapter on the various measures of the mean including logarithmic averages. ??? new chapters on systematic errors and intrinsic scatter, and on the fitting of data with bivariate errors. ??? a new case study and additional worked examples. ??? mathematical derivations and theoretical background material have been appropriately marked,to improve the readability of the text. ??? end-of-chapter summary boxes, for easy reference. As in the first edition, the main pedagogical method is a theory-then-application approach, where emphasis is placed first on a sound understanding of the underlying theory of a topic, which becomes the basis for an efficient and practical application of the material. The level is appropriate for undergraduates and beginning graduate students, and as a reference for the experienced researcher. Basic calculus is used in some of the derivations, and no previous background in probability and statistics is required. The book includes many numerical tables of data, as well as exercises and examples to aid the readers' understanding of the topic

DescriptionX, 114 p. 64 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book focuses on the specific mission planning for lunar sample collection, the equipment used, and the analysis and findings concerning the samples at the Lunar Receiving Laboratory in Texas. Anthony Young documents the collection of Apollo samples for the first time for readers of all backgrounds, and includes interviews with many of those involved in planning and analyzing the samples. NASA contracted with the U.S. Geologic Survey to perform classroom and field training of the Apollo astronauts. NASA???s Geology Group within the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Texas, helped to establish the goals of sample collection, as well as the design of sample collection tools, bags, and storage containers. In this book, detailed descriptions are given on the design of the lunar sampling tools, the Modular Experiment Transporter used on Apollo 14, and the specific areas of the Lunar Rover vehicle used for the Apollo 15, 16, and 17 missions, which carried the sampling tools, bags, and other related equipment used in sample collection. The Lunar Receiving Laboratory, which was designed and built at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Texas for analysis and storage of the lunar samples returned from the Apollo lunar landing missions is also described in detail. There are also descriptions of astronaut mission training for sample collecting, with the focus on the specific portions of the mission EVAs devoted to this activity

TitleThe Unity of Science and Economics : A New Foundation of Economic Theory
Author(s)Chen, Jing
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2016.
DescriptionXVI, 136 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book presents a new economic theory developed from physical and biological principles. It explains how technology, social systems and economic values are intimately related to resources. Many people have recognized that mainstream (neoclassical) economic theories are not consistent with physical laws and often not consistent with empirical patterns, but most feel that economic activities are too complex to be described by a simple and coherent mathematical theory. While social systems are indeed complex, all life systems, including social systems, satisfy two principles. First, all systems need to extract resources from the external environment to compensate for their consumption. Second, for a system to be viable, the amount of resource extraction has to be no less than the level of consumption. From these two principles, we derive a quantitative theory of major factors in economic activities, such as fixed cost, variable cost, discount rate, uncertainty and duration. The mathematical theory enables us to systematically measure the effectiveness of different policies and institutional structures at varying levels of resource abundance and cost. The theory presented in this book shows that there do not exist universally optimal policies or institutional structures. Instead, the impacts of different policies or social structures have to be measured within the context of existing levels of resource abundance. As the physical costs of extracting resources rise steadily, many policy assumptions adopted in mainstream economic theories, and workable in times of cheap and abundant energy supplies and other resources, need to be reconsidered. In this rapidly changing world, the theory presented here provides a solid foundation for examining the long-term impacts of today's policy decisions
