Title  Physics of Earth???s Radiation Belts : Theory and Observations 
Author(s)  Koskinen, Hannu E. J;Kilpua, Emilia K. J 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XX, 272 p. 71 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This open access book serves as textbook on the physics of the radiation belts surrounding the Earth. Discovered in 1958 the famous Van Allen Radiation belts were among the first scientific discoveries of the Space Age. Throughout the following decades the belts have been under intensive investigation motivated by the risks of radiation hazards they expose to electronics and humans on spacecraft in the Earth???s inner magnetosphere. This textbook teaches the field from basic theory of particles and plasmas to observations which culminated in the highly successful Van Allen Probes Mission of NASA in 20122019. Using numerous data examples the authors explain the relevant concepts and theoretical background of the extremely complex radiation belt region, with the emphasis on giving a comprehensive and coherent understanding of physical processes affecting the dynamics of the belts. The target audience are doctoral students and young researchers who wish to learn about the physical processes underlying the acceleration, transport and loss of the radiation belt particles in the perspective of the stateoftheart observations

Title  Environmental Issues of Blasting : Applications of Artificial Intelligence Techniques 
Author(s)  Bhatawdekar, Ramesh M;Armaghani, Danial Jahed;Azizi, Aydin 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Nature Singapore, 2021. 
Description  IX, 77 p. 9 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book gives a rigorous and uptodate study of the various AI and machine learning algorithms for resolving environmental challenges associated with blasting. Blasting is a critical activity in any mining or civil engineering project for breaking down hard rock masses. A small amount of explosive energy is only used during blasting to fracture rock in order to achieve the appropriate fragmentation, throw, and development of muck pile. The surplus energy is transformed into unfavourable environmental effects such as backbreak, flyrock, air overpressure, and ground vibration. The advancement of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques has increased the accuracy of predicting these environmental impacts of blasting. This book discusses the effective application of these strategies in forecasting, mitigating, and regulating the aforementioned blasting environmental hazards

Title  Magnetic universe: Geophysical and Astrophysical Dynamo Theory 
Author(s)  Gunther Rudiger;Rainer Hollerbach 
Publication  Verlag, John Wiley and Sons, 2004. 
Abstract Note  Magnetism is one of the most pervasive features of the Universe, with planets, stars and entire galaxies all having associated magnetic fields. All of these fields are generated by the motion of electrically conducting fluids, the socalled dynamo effect. The precise details of what drives the motion, and indeed what the fluid consists of, differ widely though. In this work the authors draw upon their expertise in geophysical and astrophysical MHD to explore some of these phenomena, and describe the similarities and differences between different magnetized objects. They also explain why magnetic fields are crucial in the formation of the stars, and discuss promising experiments currently being designed to study some of the relevant physics in the laboratory. This interdisciplinary approach makes the book appealing to a wide audience in physics, astrophysics and geophysics

Title  Computational Multiscale Modeling of Fluids and Solids : Theory and Applications 
Author(s)  Steinhauser, Martin Oliver 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2017. 
Description  XXIII, 405 p. 139 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The idea of the book is to provide a comprehensive overview of computational physics methods and techniques, that are used for materials modeling on different length and time scales. Each chapter first provides an overview of the basic physical principles which are the basis for the numerical and mathematical modeling on the respective lengthscale. The book includes the microscale, the mesoscale and the macroscale, and the chapters follow this classification. The book explains in detail many tricks of the trade of some of the most important methods and techniques that are used to simulate materials on the perspective levels of spatial and temporal resolution. Case studies are included to further illustrate some methods or theoretical considerations. Example applications for all techniques are provided, some of which are from the author???s own contributions to some of the research areas. The second edition has been expanded by new sections in computational models on meso/macroscopic scales for ocean and atmosphere dynamics. Numerous applications in environmental physics and geophysics had been added

Title  Rogue and Shock Waves in Nonlinear Dispersive Media 
Author(s)  Onorato, Miguel;Resitori, Stefania;Baronio, Fabio 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 370 p. 152 illus., 132 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained set of lectures addresses a gap in the literature by providing a systematic link between the theoretical foundations of the subject matter and cuttingedge applications in both geophysical fluid dynamics and nonlinear optics. Rogue and shock waves are phenomena that may occur in the propagation of waves in any nonlinear dispersive medium. Accordingly, they have been observed in disparate settings ??? as ocean waves, in nonlinear optics, in BoseEinstein condensates, and in plasmas. Rogue and dispersive shock waves are both characterized by the development of extremes: for the former, the wave amplitude becomes unusually large, while for the latter, gradients reach extreme values. Both aspects strongly influence the statistical properties of the wave propagation and are thus considered together here in terms of their underlying theoretical treatment. This book offers a selfcontained graduatelevel text intended as both an introduction and reference guide for a new generation of scientists working on rogue and shock wave phenomena across a broad range of fields in applied physics and geophysics

Title  New Approaches to Nonlinear Waves 
Author(s)  Tobisch, Elena 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 298 p. 65 illus., 15 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book details a few of the novel methods developed in the last few years for studying various aspects of nonlinear wave systems. The introductory chapter provides a general overview, thematically linking the objects described in the book. Two chapters are devoted to wave systems possessing resonances with linear frequencies (Chapter 2) and with nonlinear frequencies (Chapter 3). In the next two chapters modulation instability in the KdVtype of equations is studied using rigorous mathematical methods (Chapter 4) and its possible connection to freak waves is investigated (Chapter 5). The book goes on to demonstrate how the choice of the Hamiltonian (Chapter 6) or the Lagrangian (Chapter 7) framework allows us to gain a deeper insight into the properties of a specific wave system. The final chapter discusses problems encountered when attempting to verify the theoretical predictions using numerical or laboratory experiments. All the chapters are illustrated by ample constructive examples demonstrating the applicability of these novel methods and approaches to a wide class of evolutionary dispersive PDEs, e.g. equations from BenjaminOro, Boussinesq, HasegawaMima,?? KdVtype,?? KleinGordon, NLStype, Serre,?? Shamel , Whitham and Zakharov. This makes the book interesting for professionals in the fields of nonlinear physics, applied mathematics and fluid mechanics as well as students who are studying these subjects. The book can also be used as a basis for a onesemester lecture course in applied mathematics or mathematical physics. ?? ??
