This work investigates how different fifth-grade students solve spatial-verbal tasks and the role of language in this process. Based on a synthesis of theoretical foundations and methodological issues for supporting the relationship between spatial ability and language, this present study examines and classifies strategies used by students as well as the obstacles they encounter when solving spatial tasks in the reconstruction method.

This volume coverx computer methods, material modeling and testing, applications to a wide range of geomechanical issues. This book will be of interest to researchers and engineers involved in geotechnical mechanics and geo-engineering.
Various areas that may not necessarily involve computer methods, including:
– Development and usage of new materials;
– Constitutive modeling of materials including deformation, damage and failure;
– Verification of existing and new constitutive models;
– Micro-macro correlations of material response including non-destructive testing;
– New techniques for material and site characterization;
– Computer-aided engineering and expert system;
– Innovative construction using new materials and computer methods;

– Remote sensing.

Kristopher Tapp, “Matrix Groups for Undergraduates, 2nd Edition”

2016 | ISBN-10: 1470427222 | 239 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Matrix groups touch an enormous spectrum of the mathematical arena. This textbook brings them into the undergraduate curriculum. It makes an excellent one-semester course for students familiar with linear and abstract algebra and prepares them for a graduate course on Lie groups. Matrix Groups for Undergraduates is concrete and example-driven, with geometric motivation and rigorous proofs. The story begins and ends with the rotations of a globe. In between, the author combines rigor and intuition to describe the basic objects of Lie theory: Lie algebras, matrix exponentiation, Lie brackets, maximal tori, homogeneous spaces, and roots. This second edition includes two new chapters that allow for an easier transition to the general theory of Lie groups.

This book shows how using Java can significantly improve MATLAB program appearance and functionality, and that this can be done easily and even without any prior Java knowledge.
For a variety of reasons, the MATLAB-Java interface was never fully documented. This is really quite unfortunate: Java is one of the most widely used programming languages, having many times the number of programmers and programming resources as MATLAB. Also unfortunate is the popular claim that while MATLAB is a fine programming platform for prototyping, it is not suitable for real-world, modern-looking applications. Undocumented Secrets of MATLAB-Java Programming aims to correct this misconception.
Readers are led step-by-step from simple to complex customizations. Code snippets, screenshots, and numerous online references are provided to enable the utilization of this book as both a sequential tutorial and as a random-access reference suited for immediate use. Java-savvy readers will find it easy to tailor code samples for their particular needs; for Java newcomers, an introduction to Java and numerous online references are provided.
This book demonstrates how
The MATLAB programming environment relies on Java for numerous tasks, including networking, data-processing algorithms and graphical user-interface (GUI)
We can use MATLAB for easy access to external Java functionality, either third-party or user-created
Using Java, we can extensively customize the MATLAB environment and application GUI, enabling the creation of visually appealing and usable applications
This book is organized in chapters grouped in related functionality/usage and ordered from easiest (novice Java use) to advanced

Do we live in a simple or a complex universe? Jack Cohen and Ian Stewart explore the ability of complicated rules to generate simple behaviour in nature through ‘the collapse of chaos’. ‘The most startling, thought-provoking book I’ve read all year. I was pleased to learn that most of the things I thought I knew were wrong’ – Terry Pratchett
