Handbook of Elementary Rheology

The e-book is appropriate as a primary advent to the topic of Rheology for any pupil of technological know-how or engineering. even though, having labored in for thirty years, i'm additionally attempting to meet the wishes of my commercial colleagues who -often with none prior education within the topic of rheology - locate themselves having to paintings at the formula and processing of non-Newtonian beverages.

Newton's Principia for the Common Reader (Physics) (Psychology)

This paintings, even if past my competence in arithmetic, is designed for "the universal reader. " With just--a desideratum I lack--calculus and geometry, Chandra demonstrates convinced basic scholia of Newton's treatise. yet he does greater than this. He exhibits us what Descartes suspected--that the classical geometers and Newton, in a fashion, new an analogous issues.

Molecular hydrodynamics

This graduate-level creation to the idea and functions of time correlation services and the molecular idea of fluid dynamics offers experimentalists with the theoretical instruments worthy for research of experimental effects, and theoreticians a complete resource of illustrations of theories so much appropriate in sensible functions.

Leucocarbo (3 species)—guano shags. The Socotra cormorant/shag (L. nigrogularis) (most primitive) most resembles the Cape shag (L. capensis) and both are more like cormorants in outward appearance compared with other Leucocarboninae. The guanay (L. bougainvillii ) is the most derived member. Notocarbo (4 species)—from ‘southern’ (Noto) and ‘black’ (carbo), is a new genus for which SiegelCausey designates N. atriceps atriceps the type. It is identified by a particular configuration of a bone of the skull (the mesethmoid) and contains some of the blue-eyed shags, a particularly pelagic group for which no pre-existing genus was available.

In the remaining species, males wing-flick but with no throwback or gargling. In the cliffshags, male advertising consists of non-vocal, rhythmic wing-flicking with no throwback in four species and non-vocal, rhythmic, upwardly directed head movements (darting), with throwback, in one. In the macro-cormorants, which in this classification embraces only the great and Japanese cormorants, male advertising consists of wingflicking and throwback-with-gargling. In four of the meso-cormorants, males advertise by means of wing-flicking with vocalization.

Neglectus) and black-faced (C. fuscescens)—are marine cormorants previously rarely grouped together. They are heavybodied, deep and strong divers with some shaglike characteristics, restricted to islands and coasts near upwellings, where they become locally abundant. Otherwise they have limited distribution and do not disperse far. Phalacrocorax (large) and Hypoleucos (medium or meso-cormorants) form a monophyletic group established by bill shape, the musculature of the distal part of the wing, plumage and behaviour.
