DNA-based markers in plants by Ronald L Phillips( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until very recently genetic maps of higher plants were based almost entirely on morphological and biochemical traits. These maps are rapidly being replaced and/or supplemented with DNA-based marker maps based on the use of powerful new molecular techniques. The new high precision maps can be developed with comparative ease and rapidity. They have a much higher density of markers, which allows revelation of more and more restricted segments of the genome. One of the many revolutionary aspects of this technology is that linkage between molecular markers and traits of interest often can be detected in a single cross. The ability to hybridize probe after probe to the DNA of the same individuals of a segregating population allows one to pursue the analysis until linkage becomes evident. With morphological and biochemical markers used previously, a separate cross was required to test linkage with each new marker. It was seldom that more than three markers could be tested for linkage with the trait of interest in a single cross because of viability problems. With the new techniques described in this volume, a new gene could be placed on the linkage map within a few days instead of the much longer time required with the previous techniques. In this book, a group of leading researchers provide background information and the latest versions of DNA-based marker maps for a variety of important crops. These maps illustrate the state of the art today. The progress made during the past five years has been truly phenomenal

Laser beam propagation through random media by Larry C Andrews( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since publication of the first edition of this text in 1998, there have been several new, important developments in the theory of beam wave propagation through a random medium, which have been incorporated into this second edition. Also new to this edition are models for the scintillation index under moderate-to-strong irradiance fluctuations; models for aperture averaging based on ABCD ray matrices; beam wander and its effects on scintillation; theory of partial coherence of the source; models of rough targets for ladar applications; phase fluctuations; analysis of other beam shapes; plus expanded analysis of free-space optical communication systems and imaging systems.--Résumé de l'éditeur
Mathematical techniques for engineers and scientists by Larry C Andrews( Book )

As technology continues to move ahead, modern engineers and scientists are frequently faced with difficult mathematical problems that require an ever greater understanding of advanced concepts. Designed as a self-study text for practicing engineers and scientists, as well as a useful reference, the book takes the reader from ordinary differential equations to more sophisticated mathematics--Fourier analysis, vector and tensor analysis, complex variables, partial differential equations, and random processes. The emphasis is on the use of mathematical tools and techniques. The general exposition and choice of topics appeals to a wide audience of applied practitioners
Laser beam scintillation with applications by Larry C Andrews( Book )

Field guide to probability, random processes, and random data analysis by Larry C Andrews( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematical theory developed in basic courses in engineering and science usually involves deterministic phenomena, and such is the case in solving a differential equation that describes some linear system where both the input and output are deterministic quantities. In practice, however, the input to a linear system, like an imaging system or radar system, may contain a "random" quantity that yields uncertainty about the output. Such systems must be treated by probabilistic methods rather than deterministic methods. For this reason, probability theory and random process theory have become indispensable tools in the mathematical analysis of these kinds of engineering systems. Topics included in this Field Guide are basic probability theory, random processes, random fields, and random data analysis

Laser Marksmanship Potential Evaluation: Math Modelling and Experimental Verification( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An analysis of the potential of using MILES systems for long range gunnery training was performed. The analysis centered on the evaluation of the design equations used for the MILES system design. Experiments were conducted at Kennedy Space Center which showed the MILES propagation equations to be accurate at only short ranges i.e. for distances only up to 180 meters. New math models were developed for the propagation of laser light over the long ranges which would be used in gunnery training. These math models were verified in the Kennedy Space Center experiments. An accurate analysis was also performed on the decoding technique of Binary Union Decoding used in the MILES system. This decoding technique was designed to defeat the laser signal fading effects of atmospheric turbulence. At long ranges the Binary Union Decoding technique proved to be less effective then at short ranges. (Author)

Laser Radar Architecture: Multi-Aperture vs. Single Aperture( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Free space optical communication and laser radar links that operate within even a thin atmosphere can exhibit severe temporal short-term fading and cause tracking difficulties that are attributed to turbulence-induced scintillation. Various system architectures can be developed to mitigate scintillation and other atmospheric effects: (a) Increased transmitter power (may not be practical), (b) Increased aperture size (may not be practical), (c) Multiple small apertures at the receiver (both direct and coherent detection)
