The automatic numerical evaluation of definite integrals( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critical examination is made of two common approaches to the automatic evaluation of definite integrals. It is shown that on the grounds of efficiency and reliability it is generally preferable to use families of common point high precision formulae directly over the whole interval of integration than to apply low precision formulae to an adaptively subdivided range. Many examples are given to illustrate the conclusions. (Author)

Geometry of the magnetospheric tail and auroral current systems( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Consequences of the measured magnetic field configuration are considered, and it is suggested that if the energetic charged particles in the neutral sheet were predominantly of one sign then this would result in ionospheric current systems and in important modifications of the co-rotation of low energy plasma in the magnetosphere
Influence of single scattering albedo on reflected and transmitted light from clouds by Gilbert N Plass( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dependence of the reflected and transmitted light from clouds on the single scattering albedo wo is studied. The multiply scattered path of the photon in the cloud is accurately simulated by Monte Carlo techniques. When the cloud is thin and the surface albedo A = 0, the reflected and transmitted radiances vary nearly as wo for fixed angles of incidence and observation and they depend strongly on the value of A. As wo becomes small and for thick clouds, the reflected radiance approaches more closely the value calculated from the single scattering phase function. As the absorption increases the transmitted radiance at the zenith becomes larger relative to the value near the horizon. Also as the optical thickness increases, the maximum of the transmitted radiance moves from the incident direction toward the zenith. The variations in the flux and the mean optical path are also discussed. (Author)
RADIATION FROM NONISOTHERMAL GASES by Gilbert N Plass( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

General expressions are derived for the radiance of a nonisothermal gas in terms of the equivalent width of the relevant spectral lines. Any appropriate expression for the equivalent width may be used in these equations taken either from the theory of band models or from exact calculations which use molecular constants. A general expression for the radiance is derived which is based on the Curtis-Godson approximation; this is compared with exact calculations. Radiance calculations for four different temperature distributions are given in order to illustrate the method. (Author)

Graduate Research Center of the Southwest (GRCSW)/Southwest Center for Advanced Studies (SCAS) collection( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Graduate Research Center of the Southwest (GRCSW) was officially chartered on February 14, 1961 as a privately funded, basic research institution to aid the southwestern region of the United States in the advancement of graduate education in the natural sciences. It officially changed its name to the Southwest Center for Advanced Studies (SCAS) on January 1, 1967 and became part of The University of Texas System on September 1, 1969 when it was hence known as The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas)
INFRARED ABSORPTION PROGRAM by Gilbert N Plass( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A number of aspects of the interaction of radiation with planetary atmospheres were studied. The variations to be expected in the transmission of radiation from thermal sources (continuous in wavelength), from flames (molecular bands), and from laser sources (essentially monochromatic) are derived. The scattering and absorption of Mie particles are studied because of the importance of aerosols in our atmosphere. Multiple scattering of light is important in any realistic model of the earth's atmosphere. A sophisticated Monte Carlo method was developed to follow the path of a photon as it is scattered or absorbed by collision with atmospheric molecules, aerosols, and water droplets. Results were derived from the Monte Carlo calculations for many different conditions. The radiant intensity, flux, and polarization are calculated at arbitrary levels in the atmosphere. (Author)
Effect of the interplanetary magnetic field on the propagation of cosmic rays( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents a study of cosmic-ray propagation in the interplanetary magnetic field using spacecraft and neutron monitor data. Improved methods have been developed for mapping cosmic ray flux as a function of direction and time. This cosmic-ray mapping technique made possible a detailed study of the Forbush decrease observed on January 20, 1966. Using numerical filtration techniques developed for the purpose, demi-diurnal and dirunal components of cosmic radiation were studied. Two distinctly different anisotropies were identified in the course of studying the interrelationship of cosmic ray anistropy and the interplanetary magnetic field. One anisotropy is due to convective removal of cosmic radiation from the solar system by the radial flow of the solar wind. The other is due to diffusion of the cosmic radiation parallel to the lines of force of the interplanetary magnetic field. Temporal variability of Pioneer VII data during high counting rate periods has been studied. Study of some five days of data indicates continuous fluctuation of the cosmic radiation flux, with periods as short as five minutes occurring frequenctly. No diminution of fluctuation amplitude with time was observed. (Author)
Calculations of reflected and transmitted radiance for earth's atmosphere by Gilbert N Plass( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The reflected and transmitted radiance of the earth's atmosphere is calculated by Monte Carlo techniques. The exact scattering function for the aerosols is used as calculated from the Mie theory. The aerosol vs. height distributions proposed by Elterman and by Kondratiev et al are compared. The Rayleigh and aerosol scattering events are included in the calculation, as well as the ozone absorption, where appropriate. Results are given at wavelengths of 0.27, 0.3, 0.4, 0.7 and 1.67 microns. The mean optical paths of the reflected and transmitted photons, the flux at the lower boundary, and the planetary albedo are tabulated
