Author: Chuck Winrich. Semiconductors and Modern Electronics is a brief introduction to the physics behind semiconductor technologies. Chuck Winrich, a physics professor at Babson College, explores the topic of semiconductors from a qualitative approach to understanding the theories and models used to explain semiconductor devices. Applications of semiconductors are explored and understood through the models developed in the book.
The qualitative approach in this book is intended to bring the advanced ideas behind semiconductors to the broader audience of students who will not major in physics. Author: Tapio Simula. Vortices comprising swirling motion of matter are observable in classical systems at all scales ranging from atomic size to the scale of galaxies. In quantum mechanical systems, such vortices are robust entities whose behaviours are governed by the strict rules of topology.
The physics of quantum vortices is pivotal to the basic science of quantum turbulence and high-temperature superconductors, and underpins emerging quantum technologies including topological quantum computation. This handbook is aimed at providing a dictionary-style portal to the fascinating quantum world of vortices.
Author: Gregory A DiLisi. Classical Mechanics teaches readers how to solve physics problems; in other words, how to put math and physics together to obtain a numerical or algebraic result and then interpret these results physically. These skills are important and will be needed in more advanced science and engineering courses. However, more important than developing problem-solving skills and physical-interpretation skills, the main purpose of this multi-volume series is to survey the basic concepts of classical mechanics and to provide the reader with a solid understanding of the foundational content knowledge of classical mechanics.
Classical Mechanics: Conservation laws and rotational motion covers the conservation of energy and the conservation of momentum, which are crucial concepts in any physics course. It also introduces the concepts of center-of-mass and rotational motion. Classical Mechanics: The universal law of gravitation focuses on the notion that forces act through their associated fields, which is first introduced when discussing Newton's universal law of gravitation.
A huge conceptual leap is required from the reader: an object can cause another object to move without even touching it. This is a difficult concept to reconcile with our everyday experiences but it makes perfect sense when we realize that is exactly how the Earth acts on us.pulitalygroup.it/includes/152/bigyw-come-spiare-gli.php

Gravity is able to pull on us even though we are not in direct contact with the Earth. Also, the concept of super-position and when it is applicable is introduced. Super-position is crucial to the development of problem-solving skills so it will be illustrated in a number of example problems. Classical Mechanics: Newton's laws and uniform circular motion focuses on the question: 'Why does an object move?
To answer that question, we turn to Isaac Newton. The hallmark of any good introductory physics series is its treatment of Newton's laws of motion. These laws are difficult concepts for most readers for a number of reasons: they have a reputation as being difficult concepts; they require the mastery of multiple sub-skills; and problems involving these laws can be cast in a variety of formats. Classical Mechanic: Kinematics and uniformly accelerated motion focuses on the difference between asking, 'How does an object move? This distinction requires a paradigm shift in the mind of the reader.
'Biophysics' implies physics applied to biology: is that what biophysics is?
Therefore, the reader must train themselves to clarify, 'Am I trying to describe how the object moves or why the object moves? Classical Mechanics: Tools and vectors is simply about transmitting information. The conventions used to transmit certain types of numerical information are crucial concepts that must be addressed at the outset of any series on classical mechanics by discussing scalars versus vectors for example.
Author: Sharon Ann Holgate. When you hear about the latest physics breakthroughs on the news, or attend university or college physics courses, it can be easy to think of physics as just an academic subject. But physics does much more than describe how matter and energy behave. It reveals how almost everything around us and, even, within us works. In fact, physics-based technologies are integral to many of the work and leisure activities we carry out everyday without giving science a second thought.
This book explores the use of physics in various sports.
We will see how professional athletes, coaches and amateurs in different sports use physics, and physics-based technologies, to participate in that sport and raise their performance levels as high as possible. Author: Matt Marone.

Leonhard Euler's Letters to a German Princess on Various Subjects in Physics and Philosophy is a milestone in the history of physics textbooks and the instruction of women in the sciences. It also covers views of its author on epistemology, religion, and innovations in scientific equipment, including telescopes and microscopes. Today, years later, we study this work of Euler's as a foundation for the history of physics teaching and analyze the letters from an historical and pedagogical point of view.

This book provides a general introduction to nanogels, and designs of various stimuli-sensitive nanogels that are able to control drug release in response to specific stimuli. Nanogels are three-dimensional nanosized networks that formed by physically or chemically crosslinking polymers. They have highly interesting properties such as biocompatibility, high stability, particle size adjustment, drug loading capability and modification of the surface for active targeting.
They can respond to stimuli which results in the controlled release of drug and targeting of the site. Author: Robert C Bishop. This book explores whether physics points to a reductive or an emergent structure of the world and proposes a physics-motivated conception of emergence that leaves behind many of the problematic intuitions shaping the philosophical conceptions. Examining several detailed case studies reveals results that point to stability conditions playing a crucial, though underappreciated, role in the physics of emergence.
This contextual emergence has thought-provoking consequences for physics and beyond. Authors: Leo Rodriguez and Shanshan Rodriguez. Holographic dualities are at the forefront of contemporary physics research, peering into the fundamental nature of our universe and providing best attempt answers to humankind's bold questions about basic physical phenomena.
Yet, the concepts, ideas and mathematical rigors associated with these dualities have long been reserved for the specific field researchers and experts. This book shatters this long held paradigm by bringing several aspects of holography research into the class room, starting at the college physics level and moving up from there.
Author: Bernard V Liengme. Maple is a comprehensive symbolic mathematics application which is well suited for demonstrating physical science topics and solving associated problems. This book records the author's journey of discovery; he was familiar with SMath but not with Maple and set out to learn the more advanced application.
It leads readers through the basic Maple features with physical science worked examples, giving them a firm base on which to build if more complex features interest them. Author: Bruce Cameron Reed. The development of man's understanding of planetary motions is the crown jewel of Newtonian mechanics. This book offers a concise but self-contained handbook-length treatment of this historically important topic for students at about the third-year-level of an undergraduate physics curriculum. After opening with a review of Kepler's three laws of planetary motion, it proceeds to the analyze the general dynamics of 'central force' orbits in spherical coordinates, how elliptical orbits satisfy Newton's gravitational law, and how the geometry of ellipses relates to physical quantities, such as energy and momentum.
Exercises are provided, and derivations are set up in such a way that readers can gain analytic practice by filling in the missing steps. A brief bibliography lists sources for readers who wish to pursue further study on their own.
Author: Nicolas A Pereyra. This book gives a rigorous, physics focused, introduction to set theory that is geared towards natural science majors. We present the science major with a robust introduction to set theory, focusing on the specific knowledge and skills that will unavoidably be needed in calculus topics and natural science topics in general, rather than taking a philosophical-math-fundamental oriented approach that is commonly found in set theory textbooks.
Chapters explicate the conceptual framework of the physics formalism and illustrate the biomedical applications.
With the addition of problem sets, guides to further study, and references, the interested reader can continue to explore independently the ideas presented. He is an internationally recognized expert in developing and applying magnetic resonance techniques to study animal as well as human physiology in vivo and has published extensively in the field of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy, bioenergetics, cardiovascular regulation, exercise, and marine biology.
