Introductory Solid State Physics (Second Edition)

Assuming an effortless wisdom of quantum and statistical physics, this ebook presents a finished advisor to valuable actual houses of condensed subject, in addition to the underlying concept valuable for a formal realizing in their origins. the subject material covers the critical positive factors of condensed topic physics, yet with specific accessory at the homes of steel alloys.

Theory of High Temperature Superconductivity: A Conventional Approach

Drawing from the wide spectrum of phenomena, defined in additional than 100,000 articles on high-Tc superconductivity, during this booklet, the authors research these uncomplicated houses for which figuring out might be completed in the framework of conventional equipment of theoretical physics. this is often the case of the overdoped cuprates for which the "Bardeen software" has been discovered: we all know their digital spectrum, we will be able to calculate their simple thermodynamic and electrodynamic homes, and are expecting new phenomena.

Nanotubes and Nanosheets: Functionalization and Applications of Boron Nitride and Other Nanomaterials

Nanotubes and nanosheets are low-dimensional nanomaterials with specific houses that may be exploited for various purposes. This e-book bargains an entire review in their constitution, houses, improvement, modeling ways, and functional use. It focuses consciousness on boron nitride (BN) nanotubes, that have had significant curiosity given their distinct high-temperature homes, in addition to graphene nanosheets, BN nanosheets, and steel oxide nanosheets.

Every task that your insect specializes in doing is done better and many times more efficiently than any man-made machine attempting to perform similar tasks. For example, the most sophisticated aerial vehicle is no match for a bee’s flight motor skills, even when a man is remote controlling it! The bee’s rudimentary sensors allow it to scan large areas to find suitable locations for beehives and flowers for pollination. Comparing this “primitive” life form to state-of-the-art autonomous navigational robotic vehicles such as those participating in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Grand Challenge, which relied heavily on precise Global Positioning System sensor data using approximately 1 kW of computing power [1], or to the Air Force’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicles that require remote guidance for navigation shows how distant our technology is to emulating even the most rudimentary life forms.
