TitleNew Developments in Quantum Field Theory and Statistical Mechanics Carg??se 1976
Author(s)L??vy, Maurice;Mitter, Pronob
PublicationBoston, MA, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1977.
DescriptionX, 473 p. 2 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThe 1976 Cargese Summer Institute was devoted to the study of certain exciting developments in quantum field theory and critical phenomena. Its genesis occurred in 1974 as an outgrowth of many scientific discussions amongst the undersigned, who decided to form a scientific committee for the organization of the school. On the one hand, various workers in quantum field theory were continuing to make startling progress in different directions. On the other hand, many new problems were arising from these various domains. Thus we feIt that 1976 might be an appropriate occasion both to review recent developments and to encourage interactions between researchers from different backgrounds working on a common set of unsolved problems. An important aspect of the school, as it took place, was the participation of and stimulating interaction between such a broad spectrum of theorists. The central topics of the school were chosen from the areas of solitons, phase transitions, critical behavior, the renormalization group, gauge fields and the analysis of nonrenormalizable field theories. A noteworthy feature of these topics is the interpene?? tration of ideas from quantum field theory and statistical mechanics whose inherent unity is seen in the functional integral formulation of quantum field theory. The actual lectures were partly in the form of tutorials designed to familiarize the participants with re?? cent progress on the main topics of the school. Others were in the form of more specialized seminars reporting on recent research

TitlePerceiving Environmental Quality : Research and Applications
Author(s)Craik, Kenneth H;Zube, Ervin H
PublicationBoston, MA, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer US, 1976.
DescriptionXIII, 310 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe purpose of this publication is to report on a series of research workshops which examined the place of environmental perception in a comprehensive system of indices for assessing and monitoring trends in environmental quality. The specific objectives of the workshops were to: (1) define the state-of-the-art in research on perception of environmental quality and identify salient conceptual and methodological issues; (2) delineate potential uses of perceived environmental quality indices (PEQIs) and related issues regarding ways in which PEQIs might enhance implementation, revision, or refinement of policy orientations; (3) identify the types of research which would assess adequately the efficacy of the development and the application of PEQIs; and (4) out?? line a realistic, pragmatic research strategy that relates to potential uses and identified policy issues. The workshops were supported by 'a grant from the National Science Foundation, No. GSOC75-0782, and were held during the spring and summer of 1975 in Amherst, Massachusetts, and New York City. Contributed chapters for this volume were commissioned with funds from the Institute for Man and Environment, University of Massachusetts. Scientific contributors to the understanding of environmental per?? ception have increased substantially over the last decade, along with recognition that this realm of knowledge is crucial for an informed perspective on-the impact of man on the environment. At the same time, there exists general consensus that the field remains diffuse and uncoor?? dinated (Lowenthal, 1972b)

TitleThe Science of Life : Contributions of Biology to Hunman Welfare
Author(s)Fisher, K. D;Nixon, A. U
PublicationBoston, MA, Springer US, 1972.
DescriptionXXV, 358 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe Science of Life: Contributions of Biology to Human Welfare is the fIrst of what we anticipate will be a series of monographs resulting from activities of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. From time to time material drawn from symposia presented at the an?? nual meetings of the Societies, when considered suitable, will be published as separate FASEB Monographs. Usually, the material will have appeared in Federation Proceedings. Occasionally, other papers resulting from symposia, conferences, or special meetings sponsored by the Federation or one of its constituent societies will appear as a F ASEB monograph. In some instances, special articles on the same topic will be drawn together under one cover. Why should information which has already been printed and distributed as a part of the editorial content of a journal be republished as a monograph? Most of the ma?? terial to be included in this effort, particularly the symposia presented at the annual meetings of the six Federated Societies, will summarize the state of the art ex?? cellently. Such information will be of considerable value to students and teachers, especially for undergraduate honors courses or in graduate studies

TitleMiniaturization of High-Energy Physics Detectors
Author(s)Stefanini, A
PublicationBoston, MA, Springer US, 1983.
DescriptionXIV, 260 p. 107 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThis meeting on "Miniaturization of High Energy Physics Detectors" had two principal aims: on the one hand to offer a Danoramic view, as comprehensive as possible, of this new field whose increasing interest can be understood by means of the justified hope to reach completely unconventional experimental aDparata for high energy physics in a short time: on the other hand to search for sufficient and, if Dossible, more advanced solutions to reduce the present (but more and more the future) gigantic experimental apparatuses to human dimensions. It is the conviction of this Organizing Committee that the first aim has been successfully achieved but for the second one there is still much to do; and so in the near future we foresee a new collective thinking over the progress in this field. Apologising for the delayed publication of these proceedings, due to technical reasons, the Organizing Committee thanks Prof. R. Favilli, Magnifico Rettore of the Pisa University, for his precious contribution to the realisation of the meeting and L. Bulleri, the Mayor of Pisa, for the warm welcome to the participants

TitleElectromagnetic Waves
Author(s)Dobbs, Roland
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 1985.
DescriptionX, 150 p. 8 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteElectromagnetism began in the nineteenth century when Faraday showed electricity and magnetism were not distinct, separate phenomena, but interacted when there were time-varying electric or magnetic fields. In Electricity and Magnetism I have shown from first principles how Faraday's experiments led finally to Maxwell's four equations, which with the electromagnetic-force law summarise the whole of classical electromagnetism. This book therefore begins with Maxwell's equations and then uses them to study the propagation and generation of electromagnetic waves. Physics is a subject in which the more advanced the treatment of a topic, the deeper the understanding of common occurrences that is revealed. In studying the solutions of Maxwell's equations you will find answers to such questions as: What is an electro?? magnetic wave? Why does a radio wave travel through space at the speed of light? How is a radio wave generated? Why does light pass through a straight tunnel when a radio wave does not? How does light travel down a curved glass fibre? It is a remarkable fact that the classical laws of electromagnetism are fully consistent with Einstein's special theory of relativity and this is discussed in Chapter 2. The following four chapters provide solutions of Maxwell's equations for the propagation of electro?? magnetic waves in free space, in dielectrics, across interfaces and in conductors respectively

TitleElectricity and Magnetism
Author(s)Dobbs, Roland
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 1984.
DescriptionX, 132 p. 1 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteElectromagnetism is basic to our understanding of the properties of matter and yet is often regarded as a difficult part of an under?? graduate physics course. In this book answers are developed from first principles to such questions as: What is electricity? What is electromagnetism? Why are some materials magnetic and others non-magnetic? What is magnetism? Physics answers these questions in two related ways. On the one hand the classical explanation is in terms of classical concepts: electric charge q, electric and magnetic fields (E and B) and electric currents. On the other hand the microscopic (or 'atomic ') explanation is in terms of quantum concepts: electrons, nuclei, electron orbits in atoms, electron spin and photons. Microscopic explanations underlie classical ones, but do not deny them. The great triumphs of classical physics are mechanics, gravitation, thermodynamics, electromagnetism and relativity. Historically they began at the time of Newton (seventeenth century) and were completed by Maxwell (nineteenth century) and Einstein (early twentieth century). Microscopic explanations began with J J. Thomson's discovery of the electron in 1897. For most physical phenomena it is best to seek a classical explanation first, especially phenomena at room temperature, or low energy, when quantum effects are small. Although this text is primarily concerned with classical explanations in a logical, self-consistent sequence, they are related to microscopic (quantum) explanations at each stage

TitleInverse Methods in Electromagnetic Imaging : Part 2
Author(s)Boerner, Wolfgang-M;Brand, Hans;Cram, Leonard A;Gjessing, Dag T;Jordan, Arthur K;Keydel, Wolfgang;Schwierz, G??nther;Vogel, Martin
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 1985.
DescriptionXII, 1347 p. 170 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteIn recent years, there has been an increased interest in the use of polarization effects for radar and electromagnetic imaging problems (References 1, 2, and 3). The problem of electro?? magnetic imaging can be divided into the following areas: (1) Propagation of the Stokes' vector from the transmitter to the target region through various atmospheric conditions (rain, dust, fog, clouds, turbulence, etc.). (2) Scattering of the Stokes' vector from the object. (3) Scattering of the Stokes' vector from the rough surface, terrain, and the volume scattering. (4) Propagation of the Stokes' vector from the target region to the receiver. (5) The characteristics of the receiver relating the Stokes' vector to the output. The propagation characteristics of the Stokes' vector through various media can be described by the equation of transfer. Even though the scalar equation of transfer has been studied extensively in the past, the vector equation of transfer has not received as much attention. In recent years, however, a need for further study of the vector radiative transfer theory has become increasingly evident and several important studies have been reported. This paper presents a general formulation of the vector theory of radiative transfer under general anisotropic scattering conditions. Some useful solutions are also presented 4 8 for several practical situations. - 2.

TitleFluctuations, Instabilities, and Phase Transitions
Author(s)Riste, Tormod
PublicationBoston, MA, Springer US, 1975.
DescriptionVIII, 389 p. 31 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book contains the papers presented at the NATO Advanced Study Institute held at Geilo, Norway, 11th - 20th April 1975. The institute was the third in a row devoted to phase transitions. The previous two dealt with 2nd- and 1st-order transitions in equilibrium systems and the proceedings have been published.i~ In order to make an overlap wi th those institutes, the first part of this institute was devoted to 1st -or der transitions with an emphasis on the problems of metast abi l i t y and instability en?? countered i n spinodal decomposition, nucleation etc. The main topic was, however, that of non-equilibrium systems, and the present institute was to our knowledge the first one devoted to the physics of such systems. The discovery of the analogy between phase transitions in equilibrium systems and instabilities in non-equilibrium systems was first made by Rolf Landauer in 1961 and later independently by others. The analogy was first pointed out for electronic devices (tunnel diodes, Gunn oscillators, lasers, etc. ) and the treatment of hydrodynamic instabilities followed later

TitlePerception of Displayed Information
Author(s)Biberman, Lucien M
PublicationBoston, MA, Springer New York, 1973.
DescriptionXVI, 346 p. 140 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteAs this book took form, its contents furnished the material for a graduate course at the University of Rhode Island. Toward the end of that course, the class reviewed the literature on display characteristics and design. The universal criticism voiced in those reviews was that there was lots of hardware information but no criteria upon which one could base a sound design. Though one could learn all about the size and brightness of various displays, one could not form any judgment about how ef?? fectively the display transferred information to an observer. As I reviewed our nearly completed text, an announcement crossed my desk stating that one of the professional societies in a seminar was to consider if one should not attempt to formulate a theory concerning information transfer from displays to an observer. That was the first title chosen for our book, before our publisher told us that "that was a paragraph, not a title. " The group of contributors to this book have labored long in the conviction that there was a real need to develop and present a consolidated theory based upon the work of a number of pioneers, including Barnes and Czerny, de Vries, Rose, Coltman and Anderson, Schade, Johnson, van Meeteren, and others, who established the various parts of a substantial theoretical and experimental back?? ground that seemed ripe for consolidation
