Download Something Borrowed, Someone Dead: An Agatha Raisin Mystery by M. C. Beaton PDF

By M. C. Beaton

Gloria French was once a jolly widow with dyed blonde hair, a raucous chuckle and rosy cheeks. while she first moved from London to the fascinating Cotswolds hills, she used to be heartily welcomed.  She appeared a do-gooder par excellence, elevating cash for the church and taking good care of the elderly.  yet she had a foul behavior of borrowing issues and never giving them again, simply small issues, a teapot the following, a collection of silverware there.  So it is particularly the surprise while she is located useless, murdered through a poisoned bottle of elderberry wine.  Afraid the homicide could be a blight at the small city, Parish councillor, Jerry Tarrant, hires inner most detective Agatha Raisin to trace down the murderer.

But the village is secretive and the citizens resent Agatha's investigation. Of direction that does not cease the ever-persistent Agatha from investigating and sticking her nostril the place not anyone wishes it—especially because the suspect checklist grows. And, as though it is not sufficient that Agatha's ex has reentered the image, the assassin is now concentrating on Agatha!

With M.C. Beaton's Something Borrowed, Someone Dead  the bossy, useless, and completely impossible to resist, Agatha Raisin is still a fan favorite.

Download Vortex Flow in Nature and Technology by Hans J. Lugt PDF

By Hans J. Lugt

Vortex circulate in Nature and expertise is the 1st account of the vortex suggestion and its expanding value in technological know-how and expertise. From aerodynamics and hydraulics to geophysics, philosophy, heritage, and mythology, the publication covers all features of vortex flows and gives a non-mathematical advent to vorticity dynamics. It supplies, particularly, details on vortex laying off, instability, and breakdown and describes many vortex kinds together with wing-tip vortices, airborne dirt and dust cyclones, whirlpools, Gulf-Stream eddies, tornadoes, hurricanes, and galactic spirals.

Download Electrodynamics and Classical Theory of Fields and Particles by A. O. Barut PDF

By A. O. Barut

"We can simply wish that extra such outstanding expositions might be written." — Bulletin of the yank Mathematical Society
This is a scientific, covariant therapy of the classical theories of particle movement, fields, and the interplay of fields and debris. specific realization is given to the interplay of charged debris with the electromagnetic box. The remedy through the booklet is relativistic; the writer makes an attempt, up to attainable, a coordinate loose (or covariant) type of the equations either for debris and the fields. The publication opens with an intensive dialogue of space-time, Lorentz changes, Lorentz-group and tensor and spinor fields. This fabric is key to the certainty of many branches of theoretical physics, specifically relativistic quantum conception. bankruptcy II describes numerous relativistic kinds of the elemental challenge of dynamics: describing the trajectories of debris for given exterior forces. the final dynamical rules to procure the sector equations and the real difficulties of the conservation legislation are mentioned in bankruptcy III.
The moment a part of the publication (Chapters IV-VI) is dedicated to a lucid remedy of the interactions of fields and debris. bankruptcy IV offers with equations of movement and their ideas (the so-called Cauchy problem), targeting the answer of box equations with Green's capabilities utilizing Dirac formalism. the matter of suggestions among debris and fields (radiation and radiation response) is taken up in bankruptcy V, as are questions in regards to the barriers of classical box theories and classical dynamics. Dr. Barut concludes the ebook with an exceptional exposition of the in simple terms mechanical method of the matter of the interactions of charged debris — the so-called action-at-a-distance formula of electrodynamics. difficulties, trade proofs, and extra subject matters are incorporated on the finish of every bankruptcy, the place an invaluable bibliography can be supplied. A basic bibliography looks on the finish of the book.

Download Laced (Regan Reilly Mysteries, No. 10) by Carol Higgins Clark PDF

By Carol Higgins Clark

A haunted Irish fortress, overseas jewel thieves, and a resort fireplace -- big apple occasions bestselling writer Carol Higgins Clark has despatched Regan and Jack Reilly on a honeymoon like no different! inner most Investigator Regan Reilly and her new husband, Jack, head of the NYPD significant Case Squad, are off to eire. yet their first actual evening at romantic Hennessy citadel is interrupted by means of a hearth alarm that distracts resort staff from the robbery of a useful vintage lace tablecloth out of the castle's memorabilia room. A taunting notice is left for Jack by means of the culprits -- a infamous pair of jewel thieves whom he has been pursuing for over a yr. Disguised as an aged couple, they'd looked at in the course of the mayhem. Regan's cousin Gerard Reilly, a Galway resident, is keen to assist with the quest, yet their seek takes as many twists and turns because the winding kingdom roads of the Emerald Isle. With Carol Higgins Clark's precise expertise for growing quirky characters, this can be a vintage caper that would hold you giggling, turning pages, and even perhaps believing in ghosts.

Download Modeling Fluctuations in Scattered Waves by E. Jakeman PDF

By E. Jakeman

Fluctuations in scattered waves restrict the functionality of imaging and distant sensing structures that function on all wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. to higher comprehend those fluctuations, Modeling Fluctuations in Scattered Waves offers a realistic advisor to the phenomenology, arithmetic, and simulation of non-Gaussian noise types and discusses how they are often used to signify the facts of scattered waves.

Through their dialogue of mathematical types, the authors exhibit the improvement of latest sensing recommendations in addition to supply clever offerings that may be made for procedure research. utilizing experimental effects and numerical simulation, the ebook illustrates the houses and purposes of those types. the 1st chapters introduce statistical instruments and the houses of Gaussian noise, together with effects on section records. the next chapters describe Gaussian tactics and the random stroll version, deal with a number of scattering results and propagation via a longer medium, and discover scattering vector waves and polarization fluctuations. ultimately, the authors learn the new release of random methods and the simulation of wave propagation.

Although scattered wave fluctuations are assets of knowledge, they could prevent the functionality of imaging and distant sensing structures. through delivering experimental information and numerical types, this quantity aids you in comparing and bettering upon the functionality of your individual structures.
