Описание: Introduces students to the basic concepts of physics, using examples of common occurrences in everyday life. Intended for use in a one-semester or two-semester course in conceptual physics, this book is written in a narrative style, frequently using questions designed to draw the reader into a dialogue about the ideas of physics.
Описание: This book is an unconventional introduction to physics and science that starts with whole objects and looks inside them to see what makes them work. It's written for students who seek a connection between science and the world in which they live. How Things Work brings science to the reader rather than the reverse. Like the course in which it developed, this book has always been for nonscientists and is written with their interests in mind. Nonetheless, it has attracted students from the sciences, engineering, architecture, and other technical fields who wish to put scientific concepts into context. This book is written in English and organized in a case-study fashion. It conveys an understanding and appreciation for physics by finding physics concepts and principles within the familiobjects of everyday experience. Because its structure is defined by real-life examples, this book necessarily discusses concepts as they're needed and then revisits them later on when they reappear in other objects. Lou Bloomfield is a highly dedicated teacher and one of the most popular professors at University of Virginia, and was the recipient of the 1998 State of Virginia Outstanding Faculty Award. Lou has given talks all over the country on teaching physics through everyday objects. He has extreme attention to detail and knowledge of technical physics. He is very tech savvy and has been able to provide many of the photos and illustrations for the text himself.
Описание: This self-contained volume surveys three decades of modern robot control theory and at the same time describes how the work of Suguru Arimoto shaped and influenced its development. Twelve survey articles written by leading experts in the field, who have also been closely associated with Suguru Arimoto at various stages in his career, treat the subject cohesively and in depth. This volume will provide an important reference for graduate students and researchers,as well as for mathematicians, engineers and scientists whose work involves concepts and the language of robot control theory.
Описание: This textbook provides a unified, comprehensive and coherent introduction to continuum physics from a modern perspective. Continuum physics is the systematic description of the macroscopic physical world based on classical mechanics and field theory, and in one guise or another forms part of all university physics degrees. The book covers, amongst other topics, properties of matter, mechanics, gravitation, fluid mechanics, sound and vibration. It can be used as the main text for a course in continuum physics or as the foundation for a series of related courses on more specialised topics. Well illustrated throughout, it contains all the usual features of a textbook including a good set of sample problems (with solutions) at the end of each chapter.
