Reminiscences of Los Alamos, 1943-1945 by Lawrence Badash( Book )

10 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the World War II efforts to develop nuclear weapons have inspired a very large literature, it struck us as noteworthy that virtually nothing existed in the form of firsthand accounts. Now It Can Be Told, by General Leslie Groves, the Manhattan Project's military commander, is probably the most prominent exception, but the scientists themselves seem to have shown little interest in publishing their reminiscences. Believing that it would be not only worthwhile for posterity, but ex tremely interesting for the present generation to hear about the aspirations, fears, and activities of those who participated in this watershed of science and government collaboration, we arranged the public lecture series repre sented by this book.! We chose to focus upon Los Alamos since the project's efforts culminated there. The isolated laboratory in New Mexico was created to design and construct the first atomic bombs. More scientific brainpower was accumulated there than at any time since Isaac Newton dined alone, and the interactions with this community are of sociological interest, as the results of their work are of political import
Lasers, molecules, and methods( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 292 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

Tables of the first 21 of the Chapman-Enskog collision integrals are presented along with certain commonly used ratios. Values are tabulated for 42 temperatures (reduced) and for 7 values of the "free" parameter in the potential

Fundamental physics of gases by Karl F Herzfeld( Book )

3 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of the Princeton Aeronautical Paperback series designed to bring to students and research engineers outstanding portions of the twelve-volume High Speed Aerodynamics and Jet Propulsion series. These books have been prepared by direct reproduction of the text from the original series and no attempt has been made to provide introductory material or to eliminate cross reference to other portions of the original volumes. Originally published in 1961. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Non-uniform scaling of an approximate H2+ wave function by William J Meath( Book )

2 editions published between 1962 and 1963 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The approximate wave function is considered for the H2+ molecule. Energy optimization of the non-uniform scaling parameter results in the satisfaction of the "one-coordinate" 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
Thermodynamic properties of air at high temperatures by Joseph O Hirschfelder( Book )

4 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 4 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) (OSRD-3550) and Bethe (OSRD-369) 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) (MS-61 ; BM-83) 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 semi-quantitative 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
