Chaos: From Simple Models to Complex Systems (Series on by Massimo Cencini

By Massimo Cencini

"Chaos: From basic types to complicated structures" goals to lead technological know-how and engineering scholars via chaos and nonlinear dynamics from classical examples to the latest fields of analysis. the 1st half, meant for undergraduate and graduate scholars, is a gradual and self-contained creation to the techniques and major instruments for the characterization of deterministic chaotic platforms, with emphasis to statistical ways. the second one half can be utilized as a reference by way of researchers because it specializes in extra complex themes together with the characterization of chaos with instruments of data conception and functions encompassing fluid and celestial mechanics, chemistry and biology. The ebook is novel in devoting recognition to a couple subject matters usually missed in introductory textbooks and that are often stumbled on basically in complex surveys equivalent to: info and algorithmic complexity thought utilized to chaos and generalization of Lyapunov exponents to account for spatiotemporal and non-infinitesimal perturbations. the choice of issues, quite a few illustrations, routines and recommendations for computing device experiments make the ebook perfect for either introductory and complex classes.

Graphite Intercalation Compounds II: Transport and by Hartmut Zabel, Stuart A. Solin (auth.), Professor Dr.

By Hartmut Zabel, Stuart A. Solin (auth.), Professor Dr. Hartmut Zabel, Stuart A. Solin Ph. D. (eds.)

The learn on graphite intercalation compounds usually acts as a forerunner for examine in different sciences. for example, the concept that of staging, that is basic to graphite intercalation compounds, is usually appropriate to floor technology in reference to adsorbates on steel surfaces and to high-temperature superconducting oxide layer fabrics. Phonon-folding and mode-splitting results aren't merely simple to graphite intercalation compounds but additionally to polytypical platforms similar to supercon­ ductors, superlattices, and steel and semiconductor superlattices. cost move results playa enormously very important function in lots of components, and so they should be most simply and essentially studied with intercalated graphite. This checklist might be augmented with many extra examples. the $64000 message, notwithstanding, is that graphite inter­ calation compounds characterize a category of fabrics that not just can be utilized for trying out numerous condensed-matter recommendations, but additionally stimulates new rules and methods. This quantity is the second one of a two-volume set. the 1st quantity addressed the structural and dynamical features of graphite intercalation compounds, including the chemistry and intercalation of latest compounds. This moment quantity offers an updated prestige document from professional researchers at the shipping, magnetic, elec­ tronic and optical houses ofthis designated type of fabrics. The band-structure cal­ culations of a few of the donor and acceptor compounds are mentioned extensive, and particular experiences are supplied ofthe experimental verification ofthe digital struc­ ture when it comes to their photoemission spectra and optical properties.

Macromolecular Crystallography with Synchrotron Radiation by John R. Helliwell

By John R. Helliwell

This hugely illustrated monograph offers a accomplished examine of the constitution and serve as of proteins, nucleic acids and viruses utilizing synchrotron radiation and crystallography. Synchrotron radiation is severe, polychromatic and finely collimated, and is very potent for probing the constitution of macromolecules. it is a fast-expanding box, and this well timed monograph supplies a whole creation to the strategy and its makes use of. starting with chapters at the basics of macromolecular crystallography and macromolecular constitution, the ebook is going directly to assessment the resources and homes of synchrotron radiation, instrumentation and information assortment. There are chapters at the Laue technique, on diffuse X-ray scattering and on variable wavelength dispersion tools. The ebook concludes with an outline and survey of purposes together with experiences at excessive answer, using small crystals, the examine of huge unit cells, and time-resolved crystallography (particularly of enzymes). Appendices are supplied which current crucial details for the synchrotron person in addition to information regarding synchrotron amenities at the moment to be had. an in depth bibliography and reference part completes the amount. Many tables, diagrams and pictures are incorporated.
