Integral transforms in applied mathematics by John Miles( Book )
15 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An intermediate-level text on the use of integral transforms in applied mathematics and engineering. Existing works either cover the subject in more elementary form or are advanced treatises. In a very lucid style the author deals with the use of this important mathematical tool to solve ordinary and partial differential equations in problems in electrical circuits, mechanical vibration and wave motion, heat conduction, and fluid mechanics. The book is divided into five parts covering integral transform pairs, the Laplace transform, Fourier transforms, Hankel transforms, and finite Fourier transforms. A basic knowledge of complex variables and elementary differential equations is assumed. There are many exercises and examples drawn from the above fields, tables of the transform pairs needed in the text, and a glossary of terms with which the student may be unfamiliar. For the student who seeks further background on the subject, an annotated bibliography is provided

Manipulation of apomixis in Brachiaria breeding by John Miles( )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Until 10 years ago, genetic improvement of Brachiaria species depended entirely on selection among naturally existing genotypes, genetic recombination being impossible because of prevailing apomictic reproduction. However, recent advances in understanding the genetics and cytogenetics of Brachiaria, and the creating of a tetraploid sexual B. ruziziensis have opened the way for controlled genetic manipulation. Two relevant gene pools are discussed. Genetic recombination is now possible in the B. ruziziensis/B.brizantha/B.decumbens pool. Breeding in the B.humidicola/B. dictyoneura/B.jubata pool awaits the development of a compatible source of sexuality. Present breeding initiatives aim to create apomictic genotypes combining spittlebug resistance and edaphicadaptation with other desirable attributes. Evaluation methods need to be improved. Current breeding schemes for Brachiaria, wich are described, seek to exploit apomixis. They are empirical, and are based on general principles of quantitative genetics and our current limited knowledge of the inheritance of reproductive mode and other important traits. Clearer definition of relevant breeding objective and better evaluation methodology will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Brachiaria breeding

On the response of a layered half-space to a moving load ( Book )
1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The response of a two-layered, fluid half-space to a concentrated line-load moving over its free surface with uniform velocity is determined. Three cases are distinguished, as the velocity of the load is inferior to, intermediate to, or exceeds both of the two sonic speeds. It is argued that the results give a qualitative picture of the importance of refraction in a layered, elastic half-space subjected to a moving blast-wave. (Author)
Nonlinear Wave Motion ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The long term goal of my research is directed toward understanding wave generation and wave motion in the ocean and in laboratory simulations thereof. The prmary approach is through mathematical models. Solutions ultimately are developed in both analytical and numerical form, but the goal is to obtain analytical results that inform phenomenological models for the prediction of physical events

Time required for establishing detached bow shock ( Book )
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The trajectory of the detached bow shock subsequent to the impulsive start of a flat nosed circular cylinder in an ideal gas is determined on the hypotheses that: the shock is plane over the projection of the face of the body; the mean value of the mass flux across the upstream projection (to the shock) of the lateral surface is independent of time; and the local fluid density between the shock and body does not vary with time.
