Mathematical theory of diffraction by Arnold Sommerfeld( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arnold Sommerfeld's "Mathematische Theorie der Diffraction" marks a milestone in optical theory, full of insights that are still relevant today. In a stunning tour de force, Sommerfeld derives the first mathematically rigorous solution of an optical diffraction problem. Indeed, his diffraction analysis is a surprisingly rich and complex mix of pure and applied mathematics, and his often-cited diffraction solution is presented only as an application of a much more general set of mathematical results. The body of Sommerfeld's work is devoted to the systematic development of a method for deriving solutions of the wave equation on Riemann surfaces, a fascinating but perhaps underappreciated topic in mathematical physics. This complete translation, reflecting substantial scholarship, is the first publication in English of Sommerfeld's original work. The extensive notes by the translators are rich in historical background and provide many technical details for the reader. A detailed account of the previous diffraction analyses of Kirchhoff and Poincaré provides a context for the striking originality and power of Sommerfeld's ideas. The availability of this translation is an enriching contribution to the community of mathematical and theoretical physicists.

Modeling of scalar probability density functions in turbulent flows by Ashok K Varma( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turbulent flows involving chemical reactions are a basic feature of many combustion and propulsion systems. The development of calculation procedures for turbulent reacting flows requires the understanding and modeling of the coupling between turbulence and combustion. Second-order closure modeling of turbulent flows provides a convenient framework for studying these interactions between turbulence and chemical reactions. Models for the scalar probability density function (pdf) have to be developed to achieve closure of turbulent transport equations for mixing and reacting flows. A delta function 'typical eddy' model has been developed for the joint pdf of the scalar variables. It has been demonstrated that delta functions are a necessary part of pdf's in order to attain the extremums of the statistical constraints on the moments. The statistical bounds on a number of moments of interest have been derived. It has been proven that a rational pdf composed of a set of delta functions alone can always be constructed at any point within the statistically valid moment space. The model provides a good representation of actual pdf's in two-species, variable-density mixing flows. The model has been directly compared to experimental pdf measurements and good agreement for higher-order moments has been demonstrated. It can be shown that the delta function pdf model is significantly simpler than other proposed pdf models and is more than adequate for the closure of the transport equations. (Author)
KINETIC THERMODYNAMICS by Guido Sandri( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A phenomenological method, kinetic thermodynamics, is presented which allows for a systematic analysis of the transport properties of real gases. The method is based on the assumption that the conservation laws and symmetry principles of irreversible thermodynamics can be extended into molecular phase space. After a general formulation of 'kinetic thermodynamics' the method is applied to describe the transport properties of inert gases, their binary mixtures, and gases in which simple reactions are occurring, e.g., diatomic association and dissociation. It is shown for inert gases and their binary mixtures that our approach corresponds to a natural generalization of the mean free path theory which is independent of the details of the interparticle interaction. A substantial improvement over Jeans' formulation of the mean free path theory is obtained by the inclusion of a parameter that allows for a simple interpretation of thermal diffusion. Corrections to transport properties due to lack of temperature equipartition of the components and to the ratio of chemical kinetic rates due to non-equilibrium conditions are deduced with our approach. It is shown that the first order kinetic thermodynamic distribution coincides with the Chapman-Enskog first order distribution if an appropriate choice of parameters is made. A derivation of kinetic thermodynamics from the Liouville theorem is outlined. (Author)
Kinetic equations for gases in external fields by J. E McCune( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The kinetic equation valid for a gas with short range forces in an externally applied field is derived from the Liouville equation. The correction to the Boltzmann equation linear in eta T (the ratio of the time required for two particles to reach their asymptotic momentum inA TWO BODY COLLISION TO THE TIME REQUIRED FOR THE FIELD TO BRING A PARTICLE FROM REST TO THERMAL SPEED) is calculated. This correction is shown to vanish identically in the weak coupling limit. (Author)
Second-order closure modeling of variable density turbulent flows by Ashok Kumara Varmer( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mixing and Chemical reactions under turbulent flow conditions are a basic feature of the energy release processes in many combustion and propulsion systems. The development of predictive calculation procedures for these systems requires the understanding and modeling of coupling between turbulence and various physical and chemical processes. Second-order closure modeling of turbulent flows provides a rational framework for studying these interactions. Models for the scalar probability density function (pdf) have to be developed to achieve closure of turbulent transport equations for mixing and reacting flows. A delta function 'typical eddy' pdf model for two species flows has been developed and incorporated into a complete second-order closure computer program. The program has been used to study uniform and variable density flowfields and the model predictions have been compared to experimental measurements. The modeling of turbulence dynamics for variable density flows requires further improvement. However, the importance of modeling the higher-order scalar correlations has been demonstrated. A number of statistical constraints on three species flowfields have also been derived. These will be useful in the development of the 'typical eddy' pdf modelfor reacting flows. (Author)
Statistical mechanical theory of dense plasmas( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The physical and mathematical tools are developed for the analysis of the behavior of plasmas for which the given Bogolubov conditions do not hold. The higher order terms in these conditions for all observable quantities depend on three- and four-body correlations. The authors show that a direct calculation with Bogolubov's technique leads to divergent results. They introduce a method believed to be a far-reaching generalization of Bogolubov's. The emphasis of the classical analysis, in terms of sharply localized particle collisions, is shifted by the method to an analysis of the time scales on which the phenomena evolve. This shift leads to a new view of kinetic equations. An analysis is given of the three-body correlations which relies on the solution of the three-body problem for hard spheres. They also obtain in closed form the nth order term in the Bogolubov expansion. They then introduce an externally controlled test particle in order to probe into the properties of these correlations and to develop rigorously the corresponding statistical theory. As an application of their theory, they obtain the complete solution for the lowest order distribution function in one dimension which coincides exactly with the non-linear Debye-Huckel theory. Next they prove that three-body correlations appear one order sooner than when the test particle is absent. The transition to the macroscopic (or 'fluid') description is carried out by an appropriate expansion, and the transient behavior is given of the important moments. Finally, correlation functions among many particles are discussed. (Author)
Statistical Mechanical Foundations of Aerodynamics( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Intuitively, the molecular collisions that contribute to transport when attempting to improve the Boltzmann approximation are the genuine or close three-body collisions (i.e., those that occur with separation less than the mean free path) rather than the remote collisions (i.e., all the others). The separation between close and remote collisions is an approximate consequence of the Volterra-Fredholm equation satisfied by the two-body correlation in the presence of all three-body collisions
Fundamental Research in Turbulent Modeling, Part 1. Theory. Part 2. Experiment( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We develop a model of turbulent flows deduced from simple assumptions on the two-point tensor Rij whose first approximation consists in coupled equations for the Reynolds and scale tensors. The model, when specialized to homogeneous turbulence, contains two adjustable parameters with which we match the main features of both grid and sheared turbulence. The calculated integral scales for sheared turbulence are strongly directional. Thus the model allows one to compute, for the first time, a first approximation to the eddy structure in a sheared turbulent flow. (Author)
Voice Communication Via Scattered Ultraviolet Radiation. Volume 1( )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonline of sight voice communication has been accomplished in broad daylight via atmospheric scattering of ultraviolet radiation in the solar blind region of the spectrum. A frequency modulated high repetition rate hydrogenxenon flashlamp is used for the transmitter and a combination of solar blind filters and photomultiplier tube is used for the receiver. An analysis is presented to show the potential for a practical, short range, all weather, secure, jam resistant communications system. An experimental study has been performed to systematically determine the scattering and absorption characteristics of ultraviolet light in the lower atmosphere, in both clear and rainy weather. A simplified atmospheric scattering theory has been developed which shows excellent agreement with the observed data. The theory utilizes the generalized Henyey-Greenstein phase function modified to resemble Deirmenjian's phase functions for polydispersed aerosols
