This book, first published in 1979,is about how we see: the environment around us (its surfaces, their layout, and their colors and textures); where we are in the environment; whether or not we are moving and, if we are, where we are going; what things are good for; how to do things (to thread a needle or drive an automobile); or why things look as they do. The basic assumption is that vision depends on the eye which is connected to the brain. The author suggests that natural vision depends on the eyes in the head on a body supported by the ground, the

The senses considered as perceptual systems by James J Gibson( Book )

41 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Gibson does not treat of the different senses as mere producers of visual, auditory, tactual, or other sensations. Rather, he regards them as active seeking mechanisms for looking, listening, touching, and the like. This means that the emphasis is on explanations of how we are able to have the constant perceptions that we need for effective action and avoidance of physical harm in our everyday lives. The author clearly supports his view that the perception of reality is not something assembled or computed by the brain from an ever-varying kaleidoscope of sensations. He emphasizes the importance of regarding the different perceptual systems not only as active, but also interrelated

Vibrational excitation of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide by high velocity collision with molecular oxygen by A Rahbee( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hyperthermal molecular beam apparatus, utilizing a heated seeded supersonic nozzle capable of producing fast intense beams of atmospheric species, has been employed to study vibrational excitation of plume species carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. The apparatus is provided with a novel neutral beam detector for measurement of beam intensity and velocity distribution. The excitation mechanism is studied through monitoring of the infrared emission from the plume species by the use of lead sulfide, lead selenide, and indium antimonide. Lack of measurable signals is analyzed in terms of signal to noise ratios and it is shown that excitation cross sections generally have an upper limit of 10 to the 19th power per square centimeter showing that transfer of translational energy into internal energy does not take place efficiently.
