  • Q of the Earth: Global, Regional, and Laboratory Studies

    Variations in seismic Q are sensitive to a much greater extent than are seismic velocity variations on factors such as temperature, fluid content, and the movement of solid state defects in the earth. For that reason an understanding of Q and its variation with position in the earth and with time should provide information in earth's tectonic ...

  • Exploratory Analysis of Spatial and Temporal Data

    Exploratory data analysis (EDA) is about detecting and describing patterns, trends, and relations in data, motivated by certain purposes of investigation. As something relevant is detected in data, new questions arise, causing specific parts to be viewed in more detail. So EDA has a significant appeal: it involves hypothesis generation rather than ...

  • Parameter Identification of Materials and Structures

    The nature and the human creations are full of complex phenomena, which sometimes can be observed but rarely follow our hypotheses. The best we can do is to build a parametric model and try to adjust (identify) the unknown parameters based on the available observations. The authors discuss problems relevant to materials and structures like inverse ...

  • Heat and cold storage with PCM

    The subject of the book is “heat and cold storage with PCM (phase change material)”. Currently there are plenty of publications in journals on different aspects of PCM technology, but there is no “introduction into basics and applications” available for a beginner or for somebody who works in one aspect of PCM technology and wants to get a general ...
