200 More Puzzling Physics Problems: With Hints and Solutions by Péter Gnädig, Gyula Honyek, Máté Vigh, Ken F. Riley

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1107103851 | 492 Pages | PDF | 12.7 MB

Like its predecessor, 200 Puzzling Physics Problems, this book is aimed at strengthening students’ grasp of the laws of physics by applying them to situations that are practical, and to problems that yield more easily to intuitive insight than to brute-force methods and complex mathematics. The problems are chosen almost exclusively from classical, non-quantum physics, but are no easier for that. They are intriguingly posed in accessible non-technical language, and require readers to select an appropriate analysis framework and decide which branches of physics are involved. The general level of sophistication needed is that of the exceptional school student, the good undergraduate, or the competent graduate student; some physics professors may find some of the more difficult questions challenging. By contrast, the mathematical demands are relatively minimal, and seldom go beyond elementary calculus. This further book of physics problems is not only instructive and challenging, but also enjoyable.

Blueprint for Interstellar Travel by Paul Kirsch

English | 1 Oct. 2017 | ASIN: B0763SBLWR | 293 Pages | AZW3 | 11.02 MB

Blueprint for Interstellar Travel is a primer on a unique theory of interstellar travel. It presents ideas originally put forth by Michael Miller and Larry Maurer and assembled by Paul Kirsch in a way that makes the information accessible to the lay public. The very first to present a new paradigm for space travel, based on the energy signature of a remote photon, it’s illustrated with vibrant color images that clearly explain the ideas and technology behind them.
One of the core ideas discussed in Blueprint for Interstellar Travel involves exploiting Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle at a human-sized level. As such, this book presents a unique paradigm with no commonality to the conventional back-exhaust rocket system presently in use, or other advanced and novel space travel systems.
Developed over a ten year period since the publication of Paul Kirsch’s previous book, This Way to the Stars, Blueprint for Interstellar Travel provides new and comprehensive information supported by peer-reviewed literature. Introductory text describes the lives of the inventors and the challenges faced by those who present new ideas. it concludes with a vision of how we might continue to explore the universe.

Entropy And Its Physical Meaning by J.S. DUGDALE

English | 30 Mar. 2007 | ISBN: 0748405690, 0748405682 | ASIN: B000P0JMN6 | 214 Pages | MOBI | 4.51 MB

This text presents a comprehensive approach to entropy, recognizing that it is a concept often misunderstood. Beginning with an historical classical viewpoint, a statistical view then follows to give a more physical picture.

Investigations of Cellular and Molecular Biophysical Properties by Atomic Force Microscopy Nanorobotics By Mi Li

English | PDF | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 146 Pages | ISBN : 9811068283 | 5.65 MB

This book presents methodological and application research in detecting cellular and molecular biophysical properties based on atomic force microscopy (AFM) nanorobotics. Series methods for in situ label-free visualizing and quantifying the multiple physical properties of single cells and single molecules were developed, including immobilization strategies for observing fine structures of living cells, measurements of single-cell mechanics, force recognition of molecular interactions, and mapping protein organizations on cell surface.
The biomedical applications of these methods in clinical lymphoma treatments were explored in detail, including primary sample preparation, cancer cell recognition, AFM detection and data analysis. Future directions about the biomedical applications of AFM are also given.

Raman Fiber Lasers By Yan Feng

English | PDF | 2017 | 363 Pages | ISBN : 3319652761 | 15.71 MB

This book serves as a comprehensive, up-to-date reference about this cutting-edge laser technology and its many new and interesting developments. Various aspects and trends of Raman fiber lasers are described in detail by experts in their fields. Raman fiber lasers have progressed quickly in the past decade, and have emerged as a versatile laser technology for generating high power light sources covering a spectral range from visible to mid-infrared.
