Higher Transcendental Functions [Volumes I-III] - Bateman, Harry
The work of which this book is the first volume might be described
as an up-to-date version of Part II. The Transcendental Functions of Whittaker and Watson's celebrated "Modern Analysis". Bateman (who
was a pupil of E. T. Whittaker) planned his "Guide to the Functions" on a gigantic scale. In addition to a detailed account of the properties
of the most important functions, the work was to include the historic
origin and definition of, the basic formulas relating to, and a bibliography
for all special functions ever invented or investigated. These
functions were to be catalogued and classified under twelve different
headings according to their definition by...
Tables of Integral Transforms [Volumes I & II] - Bateman, Harry
A considerable proportion of the tremendous amount of material collected by the late Professor Harry Bateman concerns definite integrals. The organization and presentation of this material is a very difficult
task to which Bateman devoted considerable attention. It is fairly clear that the arrangement used in shorter tables of integrals is not very suitable for a collection about three times the size of Bierens de Haan, and
the circumstance that a considerable proportion of these integrals involves higher transcendental functions with their manifold and not always highly standardized notations, does not make this task easier. Eventually,
Bateman decided to break up his integral...
A Dislocation Model of the 1994 Northridge, California,
Earthquake Determined From Strong Ground Motions - Wald, David J.; Heaton, Thomas H.
A preliminary rupture model of the 1994 Northridge, California earthquake, determined
from strong motion waveform inversion and analysis, is presented. The fault rupture plane
chosen is based on the distributions of aftershocks and teleseismic surface-wave and bodywave
point-source solutions. The fault strikes 122°, dips 42°, and has a slip vector of 109°.
The average slip is about 1.2 meters over the rupture area and the peak slip reaches nearly
4 meters. Our estimate of the seismic moment is 1.2 ± 0.2 x 10^(26) dyne-cm. The area of
rupture is small relative to the aftershock dimensions and is approximately 14 km along
strike (west-northwest from the hypocenter) and...
Southern California Seismographic Network; report to the U.S. Geological Survey, August 21, 1990 - Hauksson, Egill; Jones, Lucile; Mori, James; Clayton, Robert; Heaton, Thomas; Kanamori, Hiroo; Helmberger, Don
On August 21, 1990, the U. S. Geological Survey held a meeting to
review the status of regional seismic networks in the United States. The
purpose of the meeting was to provide information to the U.S.G.S. to assist
them in setting priorities for future funding of seismic networks in a time
of increasingly tight budgets. Each of the networks was therefore asked to
prepare a report describing their goals and accomplishments. Three
specific questions were raised: how the objectives of the network have
been met, the potential for future productivity and opportunities for
Estimation of strong ground motions from hypothetical earthquakes on the Cascadia subduction zone, Pacific Northwest - Heaton, Thomas H.; Hartzell, Stephen H.
Strong ground motions are estimated for the Pacific Northwest
assuming that large shallow subduction earthquakes, similar to those
experienced in southern Chile, southwestern Japan, and Colombia, may
also occur on the Cascadia subduction zone. Fifty-six strong motion
recordings from twenty-five subduction earthquakes of M_S ≥ 7.0 are used
to estimate the response spectra that may result from earthquakes M_w < 8
1/4 Large variations in observed ground motion levels are noted for a
given site distance and earthquake magnitude. When compared with
motions that have been observed in the western United States, large
subduction zone earthquakes produce relatively large ground motions at
surprisingly large distances. An earthquake similar to the...
National Seismic System Science Plan - Heaton, Thomas H.; Anderson, Don L.; Arabasz, Walter J.; Buland, Ray; Ellsworth, William L.; Hartzell, Stephen H.; Lay, Thome; Spudich, Paul
Recent developments in digital communication and seismometry
are allowing seismologists to propose revolutionary
new ways to reduce vulnerability from earthquakes, volcanoes,
and tsunamis, and to better understand these
phenomena as well as the basic structure and dynamics of the
Earth. This document provides a brief description of some of
the critical new problems that can be addressed using modem
digital seismic networks. It also provides an overview of existing
seismic networks and suggests ways to integrate these
together into a National Seismic System.
A National Seismic System will consist of a number of
interconnected regional networks (such as southern California,
central and northern California, northeastern United
States, northwestern United States, and so on)...
Accelerograms from the Mammoth Lakes, California earthquake sequence of May-July, 1980 recorded on a temporary array - Moslem, Kaazem; Amini, Ali; Kontic, Branko; Anderson, John G.; Heaton, Thomas H.
The Mammoth Lakes California earthquake sequence consisted of three
earthquakes of M > 6, and numerous smaller shocks. After the first of the
M > 6 events, a field crew was mobilized to install, on a temporary basis,
seven strong motion accelerographs which were borrowed from other less urgent
applications. A total of 169 accelerograms were recorded, including multiple
recordings from one event with M = 6.3, three more events with M > 5.0, and
multiple recordings of 21 separate aftershocks with M > 3.
Transmission Electron Microscopy and Diffractometry of Materials (Third Edition) - Fultz, Brent; Howe, James M.
This book explains concepts of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and x-ray diffractometry (XRD) that are important for the characterization of materials. The third edition has been updated to cover important technical developments, including the remarkable recent improvement in resolution of the TEM. This edition is not substantially longer than the second, but all chapters have been updated and revised for clarity. A new chapter on high resolution STEM methods has been added. The book explains the fundamentals of how waves and wavefunctions interact with atoms in solids, and the similarities and differences of using x-rays, electrons, or neutrons for diffraction...
Diffusion, phase equilibria and partitioning experiments in the Ni-Fe-Ru system - Blum, Joel D.; Wasserburg, G. J.; Hutcheon, I. D.; Beckett, J. R.; Stolper, E. M.
The diffusion coefficient for Ru in Ni (D_(Ni)^(Ru)) was determined by the thin-film diffusion method in the temperature range of 1073 to 1673 K and is given by the expression: D^(Ru)_(Ni)(cm^2 sec^(−1))=5.0 (±0.7)·10^(−3) exp[−2.3(±0.1)·10^(12) erg mole^(−1)/RT] where R is the gas constant and T is the temperature in K. Phase boundaries and tie lines in a Ni-Fe-Ru-rich system were determined at 1273, 1073 and 873 K. A wide miscibility gap is present at each temperature, separating a close-packed hexagonal ϵRu-Fe phase from a face-centered cubic γNi-Fe phase, The partitioning behavior of Pt and Ir between phases in a Ni-Fe-Ru-rich system...
