NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This ebook edition contains a special preview of Dean Koontz’s The Silent Corner. If you don’t take this note to the police . . . I will kill a lovely blond schoolteacher. . . . If you do . . . I will instead kill an elderly woman active in charity work. You have six hours to decide. The choice is yours. The typewritten note under his windshield seems like just a sick joke. But in less than twenty-four hours, Billy Wiles, an ordinary, hardworking guy, is about to see his life take on the speed of a nightmare. Because a young blond schoolteacher is murdered—and now Billy has another note. And another deadline. This time he knows it’s no joke. He’s racing a killer faster than evil itself. And Billy must accept his terrifying challenge: The choice is yours. Think fast. Fear never slows down. . . .

Book Summary:

From a USA Today–bestselling author: FBI profiler Karen Vail’s hunt for a serial killer leads her into a dangerous criminal web—“relentless as a bullet” (Michael Connelly). After a colleague connects Vail with covert Department of Defense operative Hector DeSantos, who has a knack for uncovering difficult-to-locate information, the pair pries loose long-buried secrets and deceptions that reveal a much-larger criminal enterprise at work. As Vail squares off against foes more dangerous than any she has yet encountered, shocking personal and professional truths emerge—truths that may be more than she can handle. In keeping with Alan Jacobson’s page-turning style, Velocity is a high-octane thriller, a memorable work rich in believable characters and an intricately plotted story that’s well-researched and ripped from today’s headlines. Velocity was named one of the Strand Magazine’s top ten books for 2010, Suspense Magazine’s top five thrillers of 2010, Library Journal’s top five thrillers of the year, and the Los Angeles Times’ top picks of the year. Velocity is the second installment of a two-part story that begins with Crush, book two of the Karen Vail Series.

  • File Pdf: wave-propagation-and-group-velocity.pdf

Book Summary:

Wave Propagation and Group Velocity contains papers on group velocity which were published during the First World War and are missing in many libraries. It introduces three different definitions of velocities: the group velocity of Lord Rayleigh, the signal velocity of Sommerfeld, and the velocity of energy transfer, which yields the rate of energy flow through a continuous wave and is strongly related to the characteristic impedance. These three velocities are identical for nonabsorbing media, but they differ considerably in an absorption band. Some examples are discussed in the last chapter dealing with guided waves, and many other cases of application of these definitions are quoted. These problems have come again into the foreground, in connection with the propagation of radio signals and radar. Reflection in the Heaviside layers requires a real knowledge of all these different definitions. Group velocity also plays a very important role in wave mechanics and corresponds to the speed of a particle. The present book should be very useful to physicists and radio engineers and should give them a good basis for new discussions and applications.

Book Summary:

Measurement of Image Velocity presents a computational framework for computing motion information from sequences of images. Its specific goal is the measurement of image velocity (or optical flow), the projection of 3-D object motion onto the 2-D image plane. The formulation of the problem emphasizes the geometric and photometric properties of image formation, and the occurrence of multiple image velocities caused, for example, by specular reflections, shadows, or transparency. The method proposed for measuring image velocity is based on the phase behavior in the output of velocity-tuned filters. Extensive experimental work is used to show that phase can be a reliable source of pure image translation, small geometric deformation, smooth contrast variations, and multiple local velocities. Extensive theorectical analysis is used to explain the robustness of phase with respect to deviations from image translation, and to detect situations in which phase becomes unstable. The results indicate that optical flow may be extracted reliably for computing egomotion and structure from motion. The monograph also contains a review of other techniques and frequency analysis applied to image sequences, and it discusses the closely related topics of zero-crossing tracking, gradient-based methods, and the measurement of binocular disparity. The work is relevant to those studying machine vision and visual perception.

Book Summary:

The Bottom Line Sales are the lifeline to your bottom line. To succeed in sales, you need to do the opposite of selling. Most organizations today realize the economy has brought on a shift from selling during the boom times to attracting, engaging, and empowering the new economy of buyers to buy. One absolute fact is that traditional and consultative sales methods no longer work. Businesses are experiencing slower sales, sales cycles are too long, sales professionals lose control of the sales process, and businesses’ bottom lines are behind projections. Velocity Selling will help you learn a non-traditional “buyer-focused” sales system that will boost your sales volume while contributing to your bottom line. As opposed to teaching selling skills, it teaches you how to facilitate the buying process by putting your focus on the buyer and how to attract, engage, and empower them to buy. As simple as A, B, C, D, it starts with building a solid foundation: Attitude: belief in yourself, your organization, and the buyer Behavior: effective habits toward yourself, your organization, and the buyer Competencies: a systematic approach to engaging and empowering buyers to buy, if they are qualified Disciplines: practices that need to be maintained for continuous success Yes, you can increase your bottom line while shortening your sales cycle; you can be in control of the sales process while building and maintaining relationships that will become your secondary sales force. Without buyers there are no sales, no revenue, no organization, no jobs. But buyers are everywhere. What are you doing to help them buy? Sales Velocity ~ Your Bottom Line ~ Our Passion

Book Summary:

Tables of the Velocity of Sound in Sea Water contains tables of the velocity of sound in sea water computed on a "Strela-3" high-speed electronic computer and a T-5 tabulator at the Computational Center of the Academy of Sciences. Knowledge of the precise velocity of sound in sea water is of great importance when investigating sound propagations in the ocean and when solving practical problems involving the use of hydro-acoustic devices. This book demonstrates the computations made for the velocity of sound in sea water, which can be found in two ways: by direct measurement with the aid of suitable equipment, and by calculation from formula expressing the dependence of the velocity on the temperature and salinity of the water. This book will be of great value to researchers and students.

Book Summary:

The contents of this volume reflect to a large extent the efforts made by a group of Institutes at the ETH Zürich to develop new techniques for measurements of flows in fluids in the last decade. The motivation came from the study of tr~sport and mixing processes in natural and industrial systems. One of the characteristic properties of turbulence is its high mixing efficiency. The techniques developed are therefore suitable, although not exclusively, for turbulence measurements. They can be subdivided into point-measurements and field-measurements. The aim of the point-measurements developed is to determine the three components of the velocity and all their first derivatives with good temporal resolution and accuracy in turbulent flows. The old and weIl established method of hot-wire anemometry was used for this purpose. One of the main achievements in this context is the construction of miniature multi-wire probes. This technique was introduced to the Institute of Hydromechanics and Water Resources Management of ETH Zürich by Profs. A. Tsinober and E. Kit from Tel-Aviv University. This was made possible by the generous financial support by ETH, for which I would like to express my gratitude on this occasion. In addition, Dr. F.E. Joergensen from DANTEC contributed an example of recent developments in the hardware ofConstant Temperature Anemometry (CTA), for which I am very thankful.

Book Summary:

It is clear that the discovery of solar eigenmodes and the resulting possibility of probing the solar interior is an event of primary importance for solar physics in general and for theories of the inner solar angular velocity in particular. While these theories are basic for the understanding of the solar spin down, differential rotation, dynamo and activity, they are however, extremely complex, and in all likelihood only limited further progress could have been achieved without the guidance of observations. Until recently and in spite of the scant observational basis the theoretical work has moved forward as the perusal of this book shows. There cannot be any doubt, however, that the present, rapidly expanding, worldwide observational program will lead ultimately to a vigorous theoretical development of the field. It appeared to the organizers that a meeting centered on theories of the inner solar angular velocity, comprising presentations of the main research areas by the involved scientists, would significantly foster this development since it would help to clarify the basic ideas of the subject. The meeting, held at the National Solar Observatory/Sacramento Peak, from August 11 to August 14, was the eighth in a series of summer symposia at Sacramento Peak. The unqualified success of the meeting could not have been possible without the unlim ited devotion of the staff at Sacramento Peak, Ray Smartt, Frank and Pat Hegwer, Ramona Elrod in particular.

Book Summary:

This thriller duology featuring FBI profiler Karen Vail “sizzles with nonstop action” (Publishers Weekly). In FBI profiler Karen Vail’s second adventure after the standout bestseller The 7th Victim, Vail finds herself in the Napa Valley, where a serial killer has been crushing his victims’ windpipes and leaving their bodies in caves and vineyards. But when the Crush Killer learns that an FBI profiler has joined the Major Crimes Task Force, the newfound attention emboldens him, and he engages Vail in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Although a sudden break in the case helps her zero in on the identity of the killer, she senses that something isn’t right. Will she figure it out before it’s too late? In a rousing climax that has left readers breathless (and that Publishers Weekly termed “a shockeroo”), Vail must pick up the pieces—and the carnage left behind by the Crush Killer. Velocity begins the moment Crush ends, with Vail having lost something dear to her and possessing a single-minded fixation on finding who was responsible—and making them pay. As the task force, reeling from their loss, attempts to regroup, Vail discovers that they had made vital mistakes on the Crush Killer case—errors that have had dire consequences. After being ordered to return to Washington, Vail enlists the services of a covert “black” government operative, Hector DeSantos, to assist her in tracking down those behind the evil she and her task force have been grappling with. But what Vail and DeSantos learn places her in the crosshairs of criminals more dangerous than any she has ever faced. And along the way, startling revelations emerge that will forever change Karen Vail—as well as those close to her. Researched meticulously with over three dozen experts in multiple disciplines and with government access that required clearance from a congressional subcommittee, Crush and Velocity take you behind closed doors into a world most people do not know exists. Both Crush and Velocity were optioned by Hollywood, and Velocity was named one of the “Top 5 Best Books of the Year” by Library Journal.

This book presents Einstein's theory of space and time in detail, and describes the large-scale structure of space, time and velocity as a new cosmological special relativity. A cosmological Lorentz-like transformation, which relates events at different cosmic times, is derived and applied. A new law of addition of cosmic times is obtained, and the inflation of the space at the early universe is derived, both from the cosmological transformation. The relationship between cosmic velocity, acceleration and distances is given. In the appendices gravitation is added in the form of a cosmological general relativity theory and a five-dimensional unified theory of space, time and velocity. This book is of interest to cosmologists, astrophysicists, theoretical physicists, mathematical physicists and mathematicians.

It elegantly brings together the basic ideas of Einstein's Special and General Theories of Relativity with the group theoretical approach to cosmology which was recently developed by Prof Carmeli.”Shimon Malin Colgate University, USA “In this skillfully written monograph, cardinal problems of nowadays cosmology are discussed in a new unusual way and successfully solved in the framework of the author's new theory. Owing to the very clear pedagogical language and to the carefully selected examples, tables and figures the book may be recommended for students and searchers in cosmology and related areas.”Mark Israelit University of Haifa-Oranim, Israel From a review of the first edition: “The book is written in a very clear and pedagogical way, and emphasis is placed on conceptual rather than on formal developments. Some of its chapters constitute in their own right an excellent introductory text on special relativity.”Mathematical Reviews

Book Summary:

On the occasion of the retirement of Ulrich Schwarz, a symposium was held in Groningen in May of 1996, celebrating his contributions to the study of the int- stellar medium, including his work on the high-velocity clouds. The coming together of many specialists in the latter ?eld prompted the idea of compiling a book c- taining their contributions, and summarizing the status of our understanding of the high-velocity cloud phenomenon. This seemed especially worthwhile at the time, since many exciting developments were taking place. After the discovery of some H i clouds with high velocities, about 40 years ago, the subject had been dominated by 21-cm observations of H i emission. Starting in the mid-1980s much progress was being made because of the availability of new instruments, such as large ground-based optical telescopes and UV observatories in space. The connections between the work on high-velocity clouds and other studies of the properties of the (hot) interstellar medium also became clearer.

Book Summary:

Eoin isn’t reckless, no matter what anyone else thinks. He takes risks. He flies fast. And he's good at stealing technology—almost as good as he is at racing. But the engineers of Saturn haven't developed what he needs so far. And he’s in over his head. He just doesn’t know it yet. Delanei Kayne is Eoin’s closest friend—gorgeous, fun, and his fiercest competition in any race. She lives for the moment whether it’s a fast ship, dancing all night long or learning more about ship engineering than she could have dreamed. Saturn is exactly where they both belong—a hive of innovation and risk—the heart of ship building for the solar system from giant cruise ships to sleek cityships. Where race pilots like Eoin and Delanei are athletes whose fame grows with every win. But everyone on Saturn has secrets. Finley is hiding her past life from new friends. Cade is hiding his identity from old "friends." And Eoin, he's hiding everything... from everyone.
