Active Galaxies Pop-up book
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This large pop-up book with foldouts contains a 3D model of an active galaxy with jets that pops up out of the center. Active galaxies, a major scientific target for the GLAST mission (renamed Fermi in 2008),contain super-massive black holes at their cores, and sometimes emit jets of particles and light. One foldout contains explanatory information for the parts of the galaxy depicted in the central pop-up, as well as a glossary, while the other contains a classroom activity, the "Tasty Active Galaxy." The back of the book features a cartoon story: "How the Galaxy Got Its Jets."

Advanced Thermodynamics for Engineers

0.0 stars

Although the basic theories of thermodynamics are adequately covered by a number of existing texts, there is little literature that addresses more advanced topics. In this comprehensive work the author redresses this balance, drawing on his twenty-five years of experience of teaching thermodynamics at undergraduate and postgraduate level, to produce a definitive text to cover thoroughly, advanced syllabuses. The book introduces the basic concepts which apply over the whole range of new technologies, considering: a new approach to cycles, enabling their irreversibility to be taken into account; a detailed study of combustion to show how the chemical energy in a fuel is converted into thermal energy and emissions; an analysis of fuel cells to give an understanding of the direct conversion of chemical energy to electrical power; a detailed study of property relationships to enable more sophisticated analyses to be made of both high and low temperature plant and irreversible thermodynamics, whose principles might hold a key to new ways of efficiently covering energy to power (e.g. solar energy, fuel cells). Worked examples are included in most of the chapters, followed by exercises with solutions. By developing thermodynamics from an explicitly equilibrium perspective, showing how all systems attempt to reach a state of equilibrium, and the effects of these systems when they cannot, the result is an unparalleled insight into the more advanced considerations when converting any form of energy into power, that will prove invaluable to students and professional engineers of all disciplines.

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) was founded in 1888 in order to further mathematical research and scholarship. Since that time, they have embarked on a number of outreach programs designed to educate the public about the importance of various mathematical endeavors. In the past several years, they have been developing the AMS Books Online website, and it's quite a resource. The works were all originally published by the AMS, and they can be browsed by author or subject. The subject headings include analysis, general interest, logic and foundations, and number theory. Users can download individual chapters from each book, and there are currently over thirty books available on the site. Visitors should make sure and check back, as there are plans to add books to the site periodically.

Chapter 15: Authoring Curricular Material
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

The Authoring Curricular Material Chapeter of the OSP User’s Guide describes Launcher and LaunchBuilder and shows how these programs are used to author, organize, and run Java-based curricular material. In order for most instructors to use OSP material in their courses (or in their educational, experimental, or theoretical research), the various physical models already available must be easily accessible, modifiable, and distributable. The paradigm for authoring, organizing, and running curricular material described in this Chapter uses the Launcher and LaunchBuilder programs to accomplish this goal.

This is the home web site for a book in computational physics. This product of the Strengthening Computation in Undergraduate Physics Programs (CPSUP) project contains flexible text materials that are tailored for use in programs using a variety of different hardware platforms and software packages. A listing is given of the chapters of the book with links to the full table of contents for the chapters. A much more detailed description of the history of this project and of the structure of CPSUP is also available. As this highly customizable text is difficult to publish through traditional means, the author is taking orders for customized assemblages of the materials, producing the required number of bound copies, and shipping them to the end user. Details of the procedure are given.

EJS CSM Textbook Chapter 1: Introduction to modeling
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

We introduce the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) edition of An Introduction to Computer Simulation Methods and discuss the importance of computers in physics and the nature of computer simulation. Various computer languages are considered and we show how the EJS modeling and authoring tool allows us to separate the model into logical parts and to separate the model from the view. Students learn the logic of computer modeling using loops and control structures as they study algorithms used in professional practice. Students are also introduced to object-oriented programming concepts by using object properties and methods when they create user interfaces. However, little user-interface coding is required because the user interface is created automatically by EJS. Easy Java Simulations is built using the Open Source Physics code library and produces XML-based source code. The use of XML is important because it enables users to describe and store the model at a high level of abstraction, thereby leaving the Java implementation to EJS. A tutorial at the end of Chapter 1 describes this process.

Chapter 2 introduces Java syntax and EJS elements in the context of simulating the motion of falling particles near the Earth's surface. A simple Euler algorithm for solving first-order differential equations numerically is discussed and this algorithm is shown to produce errors when compared to an analytic solution.
