Real Prospects for Energy Efficiency in the United States

For multi-user PDF licensing, please contact customer service. America's economy and lifestyles have been shaped by the low prices and availability of energy. In the last decade, however, the prices of oil, natural gas, and coal have increased dramatically, leaving consumers and the industrial and service sectors looking for ways to reduce energy use. To achieve greater energy efficiency, we need technology, more informed consumers a...

Physical Foundations of Cosmology

Inflationary cosmology has been developed over the last twenty years to remedy serious shortcomings in the standard hot big bang model of the universe. Taking an original approach, this textbook explains the basis of modern cosmology and shows where the theoretical results come from. The book is divided into two parts; the first deals with the homogeneous and isotropic model of the Universe, the second part discusses how inhomogeneit...

Kosmologische Strukturbildung: (Astrophysik aktuell)

Die Strukturbildung im Kosmos ist neben der Expansionsgeschichte des Universums ein heißes Thema der Kosmologie. Denn die Frage, wie Sterne und Galaxien und die verschiedensten astronomischen Exoten entstanden sind, führt die Astronomen vor immer neue Rätsel. Denn es ist, wenn alles mit allem zusammenhängt, nicht so einfach, anhand physikalischer Gesetze rechnerisch Galaxien aus Staub und Materie enstehen zu lassen oder zu verfolgen,...

Mighty Minerals (Checkerboard Science Library: Rock On!)

Dig into the world of geology with the Rock On! series! Mighty Minerals introduces readers to what minerals are, how they form, and how we use them today. Chapters discuss how to identify minerals, including color, luster, streak, fracture, hardness, specific gravity, magnetism, and fluorescence. A colorful diagram of the rock cycle furthers understanding of mineral formation and an at-home experiment provides the opportunity for han...

Physics of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials

In my ongoing review of the literature in this subject area, I had this book pulled by the library. Let me get the negative aspects of this review out of the way first. The writing style clearly suggests that the book may have been collated from course lecture notes and material. In lectures, material is presented as a part of a lecture, with a lot of spoken words to add explanation and feeling to densely written notes. In this case,...

Waves and Oscillations in Plasmas

"This excellent, comprehensive work addresses both the foundations of and advanced methods in the field. Pécseli (Univ. of Oslo, Norway) based the book on lectures he gave over 15-plus years in Norwegian, Danish, and American universities. Distinct sections effectively illustrate the diversity and potential of plasma physics, covering both fluid models and kinetic plasma models and linear and nonlinear processes. The author also expl...

String Cosmology

This relatively new field applies equations from string theory to solve the questions of early cosmology, since the standard picture of our universe emerging from a 'big bang' leaves many fundamental issues unanswered. String theory, on the other hand, postulates that fundamental ingredients of nature are not zero-dimensional point particles but tiny one-dimensional filaments. This theory harmoniously unites quantum mechanics and gen...
