By Joel H. Ferziger,P. F. Zweifel,J. V. Dunworth,D. J. Silverleaf

the idea of Neutron Slowing Down in Nuclear Reactors specializes in one part of nuclear reactor layout: the slowing down (or moderation) of neutrons from the excessive energies with which they're born in fission to the energies at which they're finally absorbed. along with the learn of neutron moderation, calculations of reactor criticality are provided. A mathematical description of the slowing-down technique is given, with specific emphasis at the difficulties encountered within the layout of thermal reactors.
This quantity is made out of 4 chapters and starts via contemplating the issues of neutron moderation and their value in all kinds of reactors. An asymptotic reactor version is defined, and the calculation of the elastic scattering frequency is defined. next chapters concentrate on the method of slowing down in finite and limitless medium via interpreting catch through person resonances; resonance integrals in heterogeneous structures; the slowing-down kernels; the round harmonics technique; statistical equipment; and small resource conception. the ultimate bankruptcy provides numerical ideas of the Boltzmann equation and covers themes resembling the multigroup technique, workforce constants, and resolution of the multigroup equations.
This publication could be an invaluable source for nuclear physicists and engineers.

Download La Miraculeuse efficacité de la théorie quantique by Philippe Miné,Jean-Pierre Pharabod PDF

By Philippe Miné,Jean-Pierre Pharabod

Avec les théories de los angeles relativité, los angeles body quantique est une de ces révolutions conceptuelles qui ont, au cours du XXème siècle, tout changé à notre compréhension de los angeles nature. Si fascinantes que soient ses functions – laser, cryptographie, GPS, ordinateur, imagerie médicale –, los angeles body quantique fait cependant intervenir des paradoxes déroutants pour notre logique ordinaire. Pénétrer les arcanes du monde quantique, c’est donc aussi accepter d’utiliser le langage des équations, dont les auteurs donnent ici une approche obtainable et graduée, n’excédant pas le niveau du superior cycle universitaire et n’oubliant jamais les vertus de l’approche historique. Se révèle ainsi l’univers fabuleux des particules élémentaires, des forces fondamentales de l. a. nature, de l. a. cosmologie et des énigmes de l’espace-temps, thèmes sur lesquels doit s’édifier toute réflexion moderne sur los angeles nature et ses lois. Mais acquérir une certaine familiarité avec le monde quantique ne signifie pas en pénétrer tous les mystères. À propos de los angeles déconcertante « non-localité », qui met en conversation deux systèmes quantiques que rien ne relie, les auteurs préviennent qu’il est tout juste attainable de développer une « intuition quantique ». Voilà de quoi réveiller les neurones les plus assoupis. Philippe Miné est ancien élève de l’École normale supérieure, directeur de recherches émérite au CNRS. Il a enseigné à l’École polytechnique et à Mines ParisTech. Il est l’auteur de extraordinary gigantic Bang et d’À l. a. découverte de l’antimatière. Jean-Pierre Pharabod, ancien élève de l’ENST (aujourd’hui Télécom ParisTech), collègue de Philippe Miné au laboratoire Leprince-Ringuet de l’École polytechnique, est l’auteur du Cantique des quantiques (avec Sven Ortoli) et du Rêve des physiciens (avec Bernard Pire).

This finished paintings ventures into that difficult junction, traveling during the universe on paths of cause and magic, math and fable, bringing jointly humanity's conventional knowledge and shamanism with modern science.

Carl Jung expected some time past that sometime quantum physics and psychology will come jointly. This integration is the main interesting element of the paradigm shift in technological know-how at once; although, before in basic terms physicists have written approximately integrating psychology and physics, yet psychologists were quiet approximately it maybe simply because physics nonetheless scares such a lot psychologists. eventually, Arny Mindell, a well-known psychologist, has come ahead and what a deal with his publication QUANTUM brain is. it truly is approximately many stuff you've gotten puzzled round this integration, and is much more. And Mindell makes all of it interesting particularly while he explores the topic of desires that is his distinctiveness. when you are thinking about science's most crucial paradigm shift, you'll want to learn this publication and you'll deepen your figuring out. -- Amit Goswami, writer of "The Self-Aware Universe: How attention Creates the cloth international" and "Quantum Creativity."

Once back, Arny Mindell breaks new floor by means of bringing the area of quantum physics and psychology jointly. this can be interesting and adventurous territory for someone looking knowledge. Quantum brain presents a map to navigate this formerly uncharted realm. Mindell, whose paintings has constantly been on the cutting edge of psychology, demonstrates a mastery the following that could be a compelling learn for all these keen to discover new probabilities. -- Michael Toms, co-founder "New Dimensions Radio"

What Mindell accomplishes is breathtaking in its scope, and in its skill to speak tricky principles simply in a pleasant educating demeanour. utilizing his notes from the direction taught for years to scholars of psychology, his event as a therapist and physicist, and his transparent writing skill makes this e-book a must-read for college students and lay individuals drawn to the ever-growing box of intensity psychology. Mindell sprinkles mental workouts through the textual content delivering the reader with imagined studies of getting into a black gap, showing in parallel universes, taking the brain boggling quantum jump, and plenty of, many others. it really is without delay a physics textual content, psychology textual content, and a pleasant well known learn. I hugely suggest it. -- Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., writer of "The New Alchemy," "The non secular Universe," "The Dreaming Universe," and the nationwide publication award successful "Taking the Quantum Leap."
