The Maple ODE Lab Book is intended to provide a thorough introduc tion to using symbolic computation software to model, solve, explore, and visualize ordinary differential equations. It is best used as a supplement to existing texts (see the bibliography for some of our recommended texts). Maple was chosen as our software package because of its ease-of-use, affordability, and popularity at many universities and colleges around the world. The version being used is Maple V Release 4. If you have a previous release of Maple, some of the commands shown in this lab book will work differently (or not at all), but the basic groundwork for solving ODEs hasn't changed. Speak to your system administrator about upgrading to Release 4, or contact: Waterloo Maple Inc. 450 Phillip Street Waterloo, Ontario CANADA N2L 5J2 Phone: (519) 747-2373 FAX: (519) 747-5284 E-mail: [email protected] WWW: http://www.maplesoft.com 1 2 • Chapter 1. Introduction How This Lab Book Is Organized Each subsequent chapter of this lab book contains information and ex amples of how to apply Maple to various elements of ordinary differential equations. It is suggested that you read the chapters with your computer on and Maple V Release 4 running. You can then execute many of the com mands yourself and experiment by changing various parameters and/or initial conditions, observing the corresponding changes in the results.

The message of modern physics is that physical reality has, at its frontiers, all the aspects of a transcendent order. At the foundation of things, elementary particles can exert instantaneous long-distance influences on each other, can be meaningfully said to have mind-like properties, and can exist in states which are, as Heisenberg wrote, “not quite real, but between the idea of a thing and a real thing.” Thus, just as dead atoms form living organisms and stupid molecules form intelligent brains, metaphysical entities form physical reality. This remarkable book clearly explains the concepts of quantum physics in order to show how science and spirituality are not separate.

Aesthetics as Phenomenology

Connecting aesthetic experience with our experience of nature or with other cultural artifacts, Aesthetics as Phenomenology focuses on what art means for cognition, recognition, and affect—how art changes our everyday disposition or behavior. Günter Figal engages in a penetrating analysis of the moment at which, in our contemplation of a work of art, reaction and thought confront each other. For those trained in the visual arts and for more casual viewers, Figal unmasks art as a decentering experience that opens further possibilities for understanding our lives and our world.

Important and detailed discussions of phenomenological research, philosophical definition, formal indication, the relationship between philosophy and the sciences, facticity, the surrounding world, questionability, and temporality emerge from this provocative text. As an early articulation of Heidegger's thought, this book is an indispensable resource for scholars and students."--BOOK JACKET.

Electromagnetic metamaterials-from fundamental physics to advanced engineering applications This book presents an original generalized transmission line approach associated with non-resonant structures that exhibit larger bandwidths, lower loss, and higher design flexibility. It is based on the novel concept of composite right/left-handed (CRLH) transmission line metamaterials (MMs), which has led to the development of novel guided-wave, radiated-wave, and refracted-wave devices and structures. The authors introduced this powerful new concept and are therefore able to offer readers deep insight into the fundamental physics needed to fully grasp the technology. Moreover, they provide a host of practical engineering applications. The book begins with an introductory chapter that places resonant type and transmission line metamaterials in historical perspective. The next six chapters give readers a solid foundation in the fundamentals and practical applications: * Fundamentals of LH MMs describes the fundamental physics and exotic properties of left-handed metamaterials * TL Theory of MMs establishes the foundations of CRLH structures in three progressive steps: ideal transmission line, LC network, and real distributed structure * Two-Dimensional MMs develops both a transmission matrix method and a transmission line method to address the problem of finite-size 2D metamaterials excited by arbitrary sources * Guided-Wave Applications and Radiated-Wave Applications present a number of groundbreaking applications developed by the authors * The Future of MMs sets forth an expert view on future challenges and prospects This engineering approach to metamaterials paves the way for a new generation of microwave and photonic devices and structures. It is recommended for electrical engineers, as well as physicists and optical engineers, with an interest in practical negative refractive index structures and materials.

This text on geometry is devoted to various central geometrical topics including: graphs of functions, transformations, (non-)Euclidean geometries, curves and surfaces as well as their applications in a variety of disciplines. This book presents elementary methods for analytical modeling and demonstrates the potential for symbolic computational tools to support the development of analytical solutions. The author systematically examines several powerful tools of MATLAB® including 2D and 3D animation of geometric images with shadows and colors and transformations using matrices. With over 150 stimulating exercises and problems, this text integrates traditional differential and non-Euclidean geometries with more current computer systems in a practical and user-friendly format. This text is an excellent classroom resource or self-study reference for undergraduate students in a variety of disciplines.
