Prime numbers : a computational perspective by Richard E Crandall( Book )

40 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prime numbers beckon to the beginner, as the basic notion of primality is accessible even to children. Yet, some of the simplest questions about primes have confounded humankind for millennia. In the new edition of this highly successful book, Richard Crandall and Carl Pomerance have provided updated material on theoretical, computational, and algorithmic fronts. New results discussed include the AKS test for recognizing primes, computational evidence for the Riemann hypothesis, a fast binary algorithm for the greatest common divisor, nonuniform fast Fourier transforms, and more. The authors also list new computational records and survey new developments in the theory of prime numbers, including the magnificent proof that there are arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions of primes, and the final resolution of the Catalan problem. Numerous exercises have been added. Richard Crandall currently holds the title of Apple Distinguished Scientist, having previously been Apple's Chief Cryptographer, the Chief Scientist at NeXT, Inc., and recipient of the Vollum Chair of Science at Reed College. Though he publishes in quantum physics, biology, mathematics, and chemistry, and holds various engineering patents, his primary interest is interdisciplinary scientific computation. Carl Pomerance is the recipient of the Chauvenet and Conant Prizes for expository mathematical writing. He is currently a mathematics professor at Dartmouth College, having previously been at the University of Georgia and Bell Labs. A popular lecturer, he is well known for his research in computational number theory, his efforts having produced important algorithms now in use. From the reviews of the first edition: "Destined to become a definitive textbook conveying the most modern computational ideas about prime numbers and factoring, this book will stand as an excellent reference for this kind of computation, and thus be of interest to both educators and researchers." <- L'Enseignement Mathématique "...Prime Numbers is a welcome addition to the literature of number theory--comprehensive, up-to-date and written with style." - American Scientist "It's rare to say this of a math book, but open Prime Numbers to a random page and it's hard to put down. Crandall and Pomerance have written a terrific book." - Bulletin of the AMS

A network orange : logic and responsibility in the Computer Age by Richard E Crandall( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the computer emerges as an elemental force in our society, the claims made for it grow more and more astonishing. Machine consciousness will be achieved; virtual reality will become so convincing you'll literally forget you're in an unreal world; computers in every classroom will revolutionize education. This book examines the ideas underlying the Information Revolution, with the belief that it is time for sharper scrutiny of a revolution that gives rise to profound problems of responsibility for computer users, educators, and designers. The six essays making up this book provide new views of such subjects as why market forces make computers clumsy and inefficient, why we must differentiate between machine intelligence and machine consciousness, why the educational value of bulletin boards, chat rooms and other network forums is essentially nil, and why the concept of virtual reality is fraught with logical absurdities

The future of amorphous silicon photovoltaic technology by Richard E Crandall( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amorphous silicon modules are commercially available. They are the first truly commercial thin-film photovoltaic (PV) devices. Well-defined production processes over very large areas (>1 m²) have been implemented. There are few environmental issues during manufacturing, deployment in the field, or with the eventual disposal of the modules. Manufacturing safety issues are well characterized and controllable. The highest measured initial efficiency to date is 13.7% for a small triple-stacked cell and the highest stabilized module efficiency is 10%. There is a consensus among researchers, that in order to achieve a 15% stabilized efficiency, a triple-junction amorphous silicon structure is required. Fundamental improvements in alloys are needed for higher efficiencies. This is being pursued through the DOE/NREL Thin-Film Partnership Program. Cost reductions through improved manufacturing processes are being pursued under the National Renewable Energy Laboratory/US Department of Energy (NREL/DOE)-sponsored research in manufacturing technology (PVMaT). Much of the work in designing a-Si devices is a result of trying to compensate for the Staebler-Wronski effect. Some new deposition techniques hold promise because they have produced materials with lower stabilized defect densities. However, none has yet produced a high efficiency device and shown it to be more stable than those from standard glow discharge deposited material
Understanding the Potential and Limitations of Dilute Nitride Alloys for Solar Cells( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dilute nitride alloys provide a powerful tool for engineering the band gap and lattice constant of III-V alloys. However, nitrogen degrades the performance of GaAs solar cells. This project seeks to understand and demonstrate the limits of performance of GaInNAs alloys by (a) correlating deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) data with device performance and (b) using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) to reduce background impurity concentrations
Correlation of DLTS and Performance of GaInNAs Cells( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A four-junction GaInP/GaAs/GaInAsN/Ge solar cell should be able to reach 40% efficiency if each of the junctions can be made with a quality similar to that demonstrated for GaAs. However, the GaInAsN subcell has shown poor performance. Deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) can elucidate recombination centers in a material and could help identify the problem with the GaInAsN. So far, DLTS studies of GaInAsN have shown many peaks. In this paper we compare the performance of the GaInAsN solar cells with the DLTS spectra to identify which DLTS peak is correlated with the device performance
Electron Traps Detected in p-type GaAsN Using Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The GaAsN alloy can have a band gap as small as 1.0 eV when the nitrogen composition is about 2%. Indium can also be added to the alloy to increase lattice matching to GaAs and Ge. These properties are advantageous for developing a highly-efficient, multi-junction solar cell. However, poor GaAsN cell properties, such as low open-circuit voltage, have led to inadequate performance. Deep-level transient spectroscopy of p-type GaAsN has identified an electron trap having an activation energy near 0.2 eV and a trap density of at least 1016 cm-3. This trap level appears with the addition of small amounts of nitrogen to GaAs, which also corresponds to an increased drop in open-circuit voltage

Evolution of Electronic Properties of (Cu(In, Ga)Se2 (CIGS)-Based Solar Cells During a 3-Stage Growth Process : Preprint( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We investigated the electronic properties of ZnO/CdS/CIGS /Mo/SLG polycrystalline thin-film solar cells with compositions ranging from Cu-rich to In(Ga)-rich by deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) and capacitance-voltage (C-V) measurements. This compositional change represents the evolution of the film during growth by the 3-stage process. Two sets (four samples each) of CIGS thin films were prepared with Ga/(In+Ga) ratios of~0.3 (low Ga) and~0.6 (high Ga). The Cu/(In+Ga) ratio ranges from 1.24 (Cu-rich) to 0.88 (In(Ga)-rich). The films were treated with NaCN to remove the Cu2-xSe phase where needed. Key results include: (1) For low-Ga devices, DLTS data show that acceptor-like traps dominate in samples where CIGS grains do not go through the Cu-rich to In(Ga)-rich transition, whereas donor-like traps dominate in In(Ga)-rich samples. Therefore, we see a clear transformation of defects from acceptor-like to donor-like traps. The activation energies of these traps range from 0.12 to 0.63 eV. We also observed that NaCN treatment eliminates a deep minority trap in the In(Ga)-rich devices, (2) For high-Ga devices, only majority-carrier traps were detected. These traps again range from shallow to deep, (3) The carrier concentration around the junction and the density of traps decrease as the CIGS becomes more In(Ga)-rich
