(
Book
)
14 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on a symposium on lasers, molecules, and methods held at the Los Alamos Center for Nonlinear Studies held in July 1986. Contributors present recent advances in theoretical and experimental research on a diversity of dynamical and optical phenomena resulting from the interactions of laser beams with molecules. They describe the predictive results of sophisticated mathematical models, the equipment involved in experiments, and reveal new insights into molecular structure and behavior

Thermodynamic properties of air at high temperatures
by
Joseph Oakland Hirschfelder(
)
3 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Our knowledge of the thermodynamical properties of air is surprisingly incomplete. In the lower temperature range, i.e., below 25,000 K, Brinkley, Kirkwood, and Richardson (BKR) (OSRD3550) and Bethe (OSRD369) have not computed enough primary points to permit accurate determinations of the variation of the thermodynamical properties along adiabats. The secondary tables which BKR have computed are extremely rough and cannot be used satisfactorily for following the shock hydrodynamics by the method of characteristics. Similarly in the high temperature range, Fuchs, Kynch, and Peierls (FKP) (MS61 ; BM83) have not computed enough primary points and they do not consider extremely low densities We have tried to fill in additional points by making crude assumptions which make the calculations quick but inaccurate. We then attempted to fit these computations smoothly onto the published results. The following tables are therefore unsatisfactory, but they are qualitatively correct and should serve to obtain the qualitative and semiquantitative features of the hydrodynamics of shocks in air. It seems to us highly desirable that accurate tables of the thermodynamical properties of air be computed. This project would be easy to set up but the actual computations are sufficiently difficult that it would require approximately ten people for one year

The Integration of the firstorder perturbed wave equation for excited states of one dimensional systems
by
W. Byers Brown(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The explicit solutions of the firstorder perturbation equations for a one dimensional system can be obtained es provided that the zerothorder wave function does not have any nodes. Methods of integrating the equations are developed for excited states where the zerothorder wave function has nodes. One of these methods is suitable for obtaining numerical solutions

Truncated reaction operators and the Helium problem
by
William J Meath(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The reaction operator formulation for the exact solution of the Schrodinger equation is used with a truncated basis set to obtain approximate solutions. The relationship between this trun cated reaction operator formalism and the RayleighRitz variational method is emphasized and shown explicitly. The truncated reaction operator and its matrix elements are discussed in general; computed and discussed for a simple ex ample, the helium atom, using a three membered basis set. It is shown that the reaction operator can be replaced by a function which we call the effective perturbation. This function has very fundamental significance and may lend itself to accurate empiricism. Expressions are given com paring the effective perturbation with the per turbation and approximations to this function for the helium atom are computed

Nonuniform scaling of an approximate H2+ wave function
by
William J Meath(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The approximate wave function is considered for the H2+ molecule. Energy optimization of the nonuniform scaling parameter results in the satisfaction of the "onecoordinate" virial theorem. Similarly the energy optimization of the uniform scaling parameter results in the satisfaction of the usual virial theorem. The simultaneous application of these two types of scaling is also discussed
