Title  A Passion for Space : Adventures of a Pioneering Female NASA Flight Controller 
Author(s)  Dyson, Marianne J 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 381 p. 97 illus., 72 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Marianne J. Dyson recounts for us a time when women were making the first inroads into space flight control, a previously maledominated profession. The story begins with the inspiration of the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon and follows the challenges of pursuing a science career as a woman in the 70s and 80s, when it was far from an easy path. Dyson relates the first five space shuttle flights from the personal perspective of mission planning and operations in Houston at the Johnson Space Center, based almost exclusively on original sources such as journals and NASA weekly activity reports. The book???s historical details about astronaut and flight controller training exemplify both the humorous and serious aspects of space operations up through the Challenger disaster, including the almost unknown fire in Mission Control during STS5 that nearly caused an emergency entry of the shuttle. From an insider with a unique perspective and credentials to match, this a mustread for anyone interested in the workings of NASA during one of its busiest and defining times, and the challenges faced by women pursuing scientific careers

Title  Conceptual Evolution of Newtonian and Relativistic Mechanics 
Author(s)  Ghosh, Amitabha 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2018. 
Description  XVI, 122 p. 153 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an introduction to Newtonian and relativistic mechanics. Unlike other books on the topic, which generally take a 'topdown' approach, it follows a novel system to show how the concepts of the 'science of motion' evolved through a veritable jungle of intermediate ideas and concepts. Starting with Aristotelian philosophy, the text gradually unravels how the human mind slowly progressed towards the fundamental ideas of inertia physics. The concepts that now appear so obvious to even a high school student took great intellectuals more than a millennium to clarify. The book explores the evolution of these concepts through the history of science. After a comprehensive overview of the discovery of dynamics, it explores fundamental issues of the properties of space and time and their relation with the laws of motion. It also explores the concepts of spatiotemporal locality and fields, and offers a philosophical discussion of relative motion versus absolute motion, as well as the concept of an absolute space. Furthermore, it presents Galilean transformation and the principle of relativity, inadequacy of Galilean relativity and emergence of the spatial theory of relativity with an emphasis on physical understanding, as well as the debate over relative motion versus absolute motion and Mach's principle followed by the principle of equivalence. The natural followon to this section is the physical foundations of general theory of relativity. Lastly, the book ends with some new issues and possibilities regarding further modifications of the laws of motion leading to the solution of a number of fundamental issues closely connected with the characteristics of the cosmos. It is a valuable resource for undergraduate students of physics, engineering, mathematics, and related disciplines. It is also suitable for interdisciplinary coursework and introductory reading outside the classroom

Author(s)  Nolting, Wolfgang 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XII, 358 p. 88 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook offers a clear and comprehensive introduction to analytical mechanics, one of the core components of undergraduate physics courses.It follows on naturally from the previous volumes in this series, thus expanding the knowledge in classical mechanics. The book starts with a thorough introduction into Lagrangian mechanics, detailing the d???Alembert principle, Hamilton???s principle and conservation laws. It continues with an indepth explanation of Hamiltonian mechanics, illustrated by canonical and Legendre transformation, the generalization to quantum mechanics through Poisson brackets and all relevant variational principles. Finally, the HamiltonJacobi theory and the transition to wave mechanics are presented in detail. Ideally suited to undergraduate students with some grounding in classical mechanics, the book is enhanced throughout with learning features such as boxed inserts and chapter summaries, with key mathematical derivations highlighted to aid understanding. The text is supported by numerous worked examples and end of chapter problem sets. About the Theoretical Physics series Translated from the renowned and highly successful German editions, the eight volumes of this series cover the complete core curriculum of theoretical physics at undergraduate level. Each volume is selfcontained and provides all the material necessary for the individual course topic. Numerous problems with detailed solutions support a deeper understanding. Nolting is famous for his refined didactical style and has been referred to as the "German Feynman" in reviews

Title  Spectral Analysis of Nonlinear Elastic Shapes 
Author(s)  Doyle, James F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XI, 409 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book concerns the elastic stability of thinwalled structures ??? one of the most challenging problems facing structural engineers because of its high degree of nonlinearity ??? and introduces the innovative approach of using spectral analysis of the shapes and the stiffness to gain insights into the nonlinear deformations. The methodology greatly facilitates correlating the shape changes with the stiffness changes. Professor Doyle also develops specific computer procedures that complement finite element methods so that the ideas and methods are applicable to general structural problems. Basic validity of the procedures is established using key archetypal problems from buckling/postbuckling of columns, arches, curved plates, and cylindrical shells, all worked out in significant detail. The book is ideal for a wide variety of structural engineers, particularly those in aerospace and civil fields. Researchers in computational mechanics also find a rich source of new ideas for postprocessing data from nonlinear analyses. Presents an innovative way of tackling nonlinear elastic stability problems with many new results and insights presented; Adopts a thoroughly modern, computationally based approach using finite elements as its basis as well as for its validations; Reinforces reader understanding with a range of practical problems encompassing arbitrary frame and shell structures; Develops concepts systematically starting with basic deformations of structural members followed by analysis of structures with coupled deformations, progressing seemlessly to the nonlinear analysis of structures and buckling/postbuckling behaviors

Title  Introduction to Mechanics of Particles and Systems 
Author(s)  Papachristou, Costas J 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  IX, 269 p. 197 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is based on the author???s lecture notes for his Introductory Newtonian Mechanics course at the Hellenic Naval Academy. In order to familiarize students with the use of several basic mathematical tools, such as vectors, differential operators and differential equations, it first presents the elements of vector analysis that are needed in the subsequent chapters. Further, the Mathematical Supplement at the end of the book offers a brief introduction to the concepts of differential calculus mentioned. The main text is divided into three parts, the first of which presents the mechanics of a single particle from both the kinetic and the dynamical perspectives. The second part then focuses on the mechanics of more complex structures, such as systems of particles, rigid bodies and ideal fluids, while the third part consists of 60 fully solved problems. Though chiefly intended as a primary text for freshmanlevel physics courses, the book can also be used as a supplemental (tutorial) resource for introductory courses on classical mechanics for physicists and engineers

Title  LaminarTurbulent Transition : IUTAM Symposium, Sedona/AZ September 13 ??? 17, 1999 
Author(s)  Fasel, H.F;Saric, W.S 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000. 
Description  XXXIV, 686 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The origins of turbulent flow and the transition from laminar to turbulent flow are among the most important unsolved problems of fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. Besides being a fundamental question of fluid mechanics, there are any number of applications for information regarding transition location and the details of the subsequent turbulent flow. The JUT AM Symposium on LaminarTurbulent Transition, cohosted by Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, was held in Sedona, Arizona. Although four previous JUT AM Symposia bear the same appellation (Stuttgart 1979, Novosibirsk 1984, Toulouse 1989, and Sendai 1994) the topics that were emphasized at each were different and reflect the evolving nature of our understanding of the transition process. The major contributions of Stuttgart 1979 centered on nonlinear behavior and later stages of transition in twodimensional boundary layers. Stability of closed systems was also included with Taylor vortices in different geometries. The topics of Novosibirsk 1984 shifted to resonant wave interactions and secondary instabilities in boundary layers. Pipe and channelflow transition were discussed as model problems for the boundary layer. Investigations of free shear layers were presented and a heavy dose of supersonic papers appeared for the first time. The character of Toulouse 1989 was also different in that 3D boundary layers, numerical simulations, streamwise vortices, and foundation papers on receptivity were presented. Sendai 1994 saw a number of papers on swept wings and 3D boundary layers. Numerical simulations attacked a broader range of problems

Title  Multiparameter Equations of State : An Accurate Source of Thermodynamic Property Data 
Author(s)  Span, Roland 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000. 
Description  XVIII, 367 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  As basis of printed property charts and tables, empirical multiparameter equations of state are the most important source of accurate thermodynamic property data for more than 30 years now. However, due to increasing demands on the accuracy of thermodynamic property data in computerised calculations, to the availability of appropriate software tools, and to increasing computer power, such formulations became a valuable tool for every days work nowadays. This development has increased the number of scientists, engineers, and students who are working with empirical multiparameter equations of state. Nevertheless, the common knowledge on this kind of thermodynamic property models and on the ongoing progress in this scientific discipline is still very limited. This book is the first attempt to summarise the available knowhow from the fundamentals to very recent developments in a single reference. Since the book is dedicated both to common users and to scientists who want to engage themselves in the development of multiparameter equations of state, general topics like the application of empirical equations of state or typical performances of different classes of formulations are discussed separately from advanced topics like the optimisation of the functional form or the improved representation of properties in the critical region. In this way, the book becomes a useful reference for readers with very different background. 480 references, 352 equations, 154 figures, and 36 tables underline the ambitiousness of this approach
