Polymer chemistry : A practical approach
(Oxford University Press, 2004)It is some time since Laurence Harwood suggested to me the idea of this volume of the Practical Approach in Organic Chemistry series, and whilst initially I could see the value of such a contribution, as the subsequent ... 
Plate tectonics : Continental drift and mountain building
(SpringerVerlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2011)In the late 1960’s, Wegener’s theory of continental drift , originally conceived fi ft y years earlier, was merged with the theory of plate tectonics and the concepts gained global acceptance among geoscientists. For the ... 
Physics of semiconductor devices : 17th international workshop on the physics of semiconductor devices 2013
(Springer International Publishing Switzerland, 2014)Science and technology of twentyﬁrst century is relying heavily on the development of new materials and their structures. In which the technology of semiconductors is the foundation of modern electronics, including ... 
Physics of semiconductor devices
(Springer Science+Business Media NewYork, 2015)This volume originates from the lectures on SolidState Electronics and Microelectronics that I have been giving since 1978 at the School of Engineering of the University of Bologna. Its scope is to provide the reader with ... 
Petroleum geoscience : From sedimentary environments to rock physics
(SpringerVerlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2015)The second edition of Petroleum Geoscience is an updated and corrected version of the ﬁrst edition from 2010 and there are also four new chapters. Petroleum geology and geophysics are not welldeﬁned academic subjects. ... 
Ordinary differential equations
(Springer Science+Business Media New York, 2012)This text is intended for the introductory three or fourhour onesemester sophomore level differential equations course traditionally taken by students majoring in science or engineering. The prerequisite is the standard ... 
Nanotechnology: Principles and practices
(Capital Publishing Company, 2015)Over the past 15 years, the scientiﬁc world has witnessed a dramatic interest in nanotechnology with research contributions from physicists, chemists, biologists as well as scientists working in the medical, agricultural, ... 
Multivariate calculus and geometry
(SpringerVerlag London, 2014)The importance assigned to accuracy in basic mathematics courses has, initially, a useful disciplinary purpose but can, unintentionally, hinder progress if it fosters the belief that exactness is all that makes mathematics ... 
Multivariable calculus with MATLAB : With applications to geometry and physics
(Springer International Publishing AG, 2017)The preface of a book gives the authors their best chance to answer an extremely important question: What makes this book special? This book is a reworking and updating for MATLAB of our previous book (joint with Kevin R. ... 
Mathematical physics : A modern introduction to Its foundations
(Springer International Publishing Switzerland, 2013)Basedonmyownexperienceofteachingfromtheﬁrstedition,andmoreimportantly based on the comments of the adopters and readers, I have made some signiﬁcant changes to the new edition of the book: Part I is substantially rewritten, ... 
Mathematical physics : Applied mathematics for scientists and engineers
(WileyVCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheirn, 2006)This book is the result of a sequence of two courses given in the School of Applied and Engineering Physics at Cornell University. The intent of these courses has been to cover a number of intermediate and advanced topics ... 
Mainstream and formal epistemology
(Cambridge University Press, 2006)Forcing epistemology is a trendy way of defeating the skeptics who since the days of old have cited primafacie error possibilities as some of the most devastating arguments against claims to knowledge. The idea of forcing ... 
Linear programming :Foundations and extensions
(Springer Science+Business Media New York, 2014)This book is about constrained optimization. It begins with a thorough treatmentoflinearprogrammingandproceedstoconvexanalysis,networkﬂows,integer programming, quadratic programming, and convex optimization. Along the way, ... 
Linear algebra done right
(Springer International Publishing, 2015)You are about to teach a course that will probably give students their second exposure to linear algebra. During their ﬁrst brush with the subject, your students probably worked with Euclidean spaces and matrices. In ... 
Linear algebra
(Springer International Publishing Switzerland, 2015)This is a translation of the (slightly revised) second German edition of our book “Lineare Algebra”, published by Springer Spektrum in 2015. Our general view of the ﬁeld of Linear Algebra and the approach to it that we ... 
Lifecycle of engineering systems: Emphasis on sustainable civil infrastructure
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2017)Nowadays, the analysis, design, construction, inspection, monitoring, repair, maintenance and optimal management of infrastructures require the consideration of the lifecycle of systems under uncertainty. The objective ... 
Life cycle assessment of renewable energy sources
(SpringerVerlag London, 2013)In recent years, a lot of emphasis has been given to renewable, sustainable and environment friendly energy sources in order to offset the dependence of mankind on conventional and nonrenewable sources of energy most of ... 
Learning landscape ecology : A practical guide to concepts and techniques
(SpringerVerlag New York, 2017)Landscape ecology continues to grow as an exciting discipline with much to offer for solving pressing and emerging problems in environmental science. Much of the strength of landscape ecology lies in its ability to address ... 
Introduction to the basic concepts of modern physics : Special relativity, quantum and statistical physics
(SpringerVerlag Italia, 2010)During the last years of the Nineteenth Century, the development of new techniques and the reﬁnement of measuring apparatuses provided an abundance of new data, whose interpretation implied deep changes in the formulation ... 
Introduction to Riemannian Manifolds
(Springer International Publishing AG, 2018)Riemannian geometry is the study of manifolds endowed with Riemannian metrics , which are, roughly speaking, rules for measuring lengths of tangent vectors and angles between them. It is the most “geometric” branch of ...
