"Developments in nanoscience, biotechnology and photonics are on the verge of offering great opportunities for the exploration of optical interactions at the nanoscale. Today, there is an ever-increasing need for optical imaging tools that are able to resolve features at the length-scales relevant for biological cells, molecules, and complexes, as well as for the rapidly developing class of materials known as nanostructures. Addressing this need, this book focuses on near-field microscopy which has opened up optical processes at the nanoscale for direct inspection. Further, it explores the emerging area of nano-optics which promises to make possible optical microscopy with true nanometer resolution." "This frontline resource helps engineers and researchers achieve high resolution optical imaging of biological species and functional materials. Readers also find guidance in the imaging of optical device operation and new nanophotonics functionalities. From near-field photonic forces, to tip-enhanced optical spectroscopy, to nano-optics with single quantum systems, this cutting-edge volume serves as a one-stop review of modern nano-optical and nano-imaging techniques, applications, and developments."--Jacket

Lattice QCD for nuclear physics by Huey-Wen Lin( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With ever increasing computational resources and improvements in algorithms, new opportunities are emerging for lattice gauge theory to address key questions in strongly interacting systems, such as nuclear matter. Calculations today use dynamical gauge-field ensembles with degenerate light up/down quarks and the strange quark and it is possible now to consider including charm-quark degrees of freedom in the QCD vacuum. Pion masses and other sources of systematic error, such as finite-volume and discretization effects, are beginning to be quantified systematically. Altogether, an era of precision calculation has begun, and many new observables will be calculated at the new computational facilities. The aim of this set of lectures is to provide graduate students with a grounding in the application of lattice gauge theory methods to strongly interacting systems, and in particular to nuclear physics. A wide variety of topics are covered, including continuum field theory, lattice discretizations, hadron spectroscopy and structure, many-body systems, together with more topical lectures in nuclear physics aimed a providing a broad phenomenological background. Exercises to encourage hands-on experience with parallel computing and data analysis are included." -- Back cover

An Evaluation of Supplementary Techniques for Correcting Idiom and Vocabulary Problems of Bilingual Students by David Richards( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study was conducted with the understanding that bilingual Navajo Indian students attempting to get an education in the public school system are faced with learning to read the English language under the conventional method. As stated, the primary purpose of this study was to determine if the Indian and non-Indian children in grades 4, 5, and 6 of the San Juan County School District, Utah, could increase their reading vocabulary using 6 conventional basal readers and accompanying dictionaries, the "Little Dictionaries for Vocabulary and Idioms," during the school year 1969-70. These investigator-constructed dictionaries contained English definitions of every idiom and vocabulary item in the basal readers that the researcher deemed questionable in terms of understanding by a bilingual student. Results of the pre- and post-test were statistically compared using the t-ratio. General findings were that grades 5 and 6 of the experimental Indian group showed significant gains in vocabulary skills; grade 4 Indian students in the experimental groups gained higher than grade 4 Indians in the control group; and grade 4 non-Indians in the control group gained significantly higher than Indians in the same group. Recommendations are included for replication and further study of the problem. (El)
Norfolk Harbor and channels deepening study : Report 1 : Physical model results : Chesapeake Bay hydraulic model investigation by David R Richards( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the findings of physical model tests of deepening the approach channels to Norfolk and Newport News, Virginia. The tests included a steady-state portion for the determination of the tide and current velocity effects of channel deepening as well as dynamic portion where variable tide and freshwater inputs were used to study salinity redistributions. The steady-state tests showed that tides would remain unaffected by channel deepening while the velocity studies indicated some subtle changes caused by the deepening. An overall decrease in velocity amplitude of 0.13 fps was noticed in the deepened condition. This decrease, however, was barely detectable by model instrumentation. Slight increases in flood predominance were noticed under average inflow conditions indicating that salinity intrusion may move upstream in the study area. Results of the tests indicate salinity changes to the estuary which can be attributed to channel deepening. On the average, the changes are small, normally less than 2 ppt, in an extremely dynamic portion of the estuary where natural salinity fluctuations due to variations in tides and freshwater input can cause weekly variations an order of magnitude greater
A Comparison of Three Computer-Generated Feedback Strategies by David Richards( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study explores a relatively new area of computer research, I.E., utilization of computer-generated feedback based upon the knowledge gained in both written and computer-based instruction. One hundred and twenty-six freshmen and sophomore college students from a variety of academic majors volunteered for this study. The instructional materials included a 2,000 word script which described the parts and functions of the human heart. A self-paced computer program allowed the students to look at a series of 38 instructional frames of the heart, with associated graphics, and provided feedback to required student responses. Three major instructional treatment groups were established: simple, covert, and overt feedback. Four posttests were administered (drawing, identification, terminology, and comprehension tests), and a one-factor anova was used to analyze scores for each of the four tests. The various types of feedback had different effects on the objectives measured by the posttests and also had a significant effect on the drawing test, which evaluated the student's ability to construct and reproduce items in their appropriate context. These results emphasize the fact that non-drill lessons do not automatically ensure increased learning of the content material; that all methods of computer-generated feedback are not equally effective in facilitating student achievement of different educational objectives; and that there is a need for further research on new methods to make computer-generated feedback more effective for the learner.

What Should Teachers Do About Migrants' Attempts at Communication? by David Richards( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interlanguage hypothesis stresses that errors are a normal part of the language learning process. At the same time, in the view of many, the teacher has a responsibility to provide short cuts for the learner through appropriate corrective feedback. Conventionally, this has been taken to imply correction of expression by requiring repetition of the desired form. However, the teacher's insistence on grammatical accuracy may set up a conflict with the student's own search for communicative efficiency. Parents correct the content of their young children's speech in ways that respect the children's attempts at communication. Teachers might formalize techniques such as expansion and paraphrase from the correction procedures of parents, particularly when the student's attempts at communication are all intelligible but still deviant at times. It is suggested that the most promising way of getting students to accept precision as a worthwhile goal, without denigrating their achievement in establishing some sort of communicative competence, is to adopt a functional approach that shows how grammatical form contributes to meaning.

Nano-optics and near-field optical microscopy by A. V Zayats( )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "First published in 2006, this book has become the standard reference on nano-optics. Now in its second edition, the text has been thoroughly updated to take into account new developments and research directions. While the overall structure and pedagogical style of the book remain unchanged, all existing chapters have been expanded and a new chapter has been added. Adopting a broad perspective, the authors provide a detailed overview of the theoretical and experimental concepts that are needed to understand and work in nano-optics, across subfields ranging from quantum optics to biophysics. New topics of discussion include: optical antennas; new imaging techniques; Fano interference and strong coupling; reciprocity; metamaterials; and cavity optomechanics. With numerous end-of-chapter problem sets and illustrative material to expand on ideas discussed in the main text, this is an ideal textbook for graduate students entering the field. It is also a valuable reference for researchers and course teachers."
A Numerical Model Analysis of Mississippi River Passes Navigation Channel Improvements. Report 5. Three-Dimensional Numerical Model Results( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River, where it meets the Gulf of Mexico, was modeled using a three-dimensional numerical model as a part of an extensive testing program to determine the effects of deeping the Mississippi River navigation channel. The three-dimensional finite element model, RMA-10, was used to duplicate the complex salinity and velocity conditions experienced at the Mississippi River entrance. (FR)
FEMWATER : a three-dimensional finite element computer model for simulating density-dependent flow and transport in variably saturated media by Hsin-Chi J Lin( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents the user's manual of FEMWATER, A Three-dimensional Finite Element Computer Model for Simulating Density-Dependent Flow and Transport The intended users of the manual will have a wide range of technical experience and have different needs that the model and documentation will fulfill. Sophisticated users will find descriptions of the numerical techniques and a complete set of governing equations that form the theoretical basis of the model. The casual users will find examples of several types of problems that will include their type of application. FEMWATER is a modern implementation of the two older models, 3DFEMWATER (flow) and 3DLEWASTE (transport). FEMWATER was formed by combining the two codes into a single coupled flow and transport model. The improvements implemented in FEMWATER are numerous. First, the entire program structure was changed to allow its integration into the Department of Defense Groundwater Modeling System (GMS). The GMS contains a state-of-the-art graphical user environmental that allows efficient model setup and visualization. Second, a series of new solvers were added to replace the previously used block iterative solver. The new solvers allow an arbitrary node numbering scheme that enables easier graphical user interface connections and still provide improved computational efficient. Their, density-driven (salinity) transport capability was added to allow salinity intrusion studies in coastal aquifers. This required the coupling of flow and transport within a common model, which is the last major improvement
