Algebra for Applications: Cryptography, Secret Sharing, Error-Correcting, Fingerprinting, Compression

Algebra for Applications: Cryptography, Secret Sharing, Error-Correcting, Fingerprinting, Compression by Arkadii Slinko
English | PDF,EPUB | 2020 | 376 Pages | ISBN : 3030440737 | 27 MB

Modern societies are awash with data that needs to be manipulated in many different ways: encrypted, compressed, shared between users in a prescribed manner, protected from unauthorised access, and transmitted over unreliable channels. All of these operations are based on algebra and number theory and can only be properly understood with a good knowledge of these fields. This textbook provides the mathematical tools and applies them to study key aspects of data transmission such as encryption and compression.

Elementary Approach to Special Relativity

English | PDF,EPUB | 2020 | 350 Pages | ISBN : 9811531676 | 31 MB

This book presents an alternative representation of Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity, which makes Special Relativity much more comprehensible. Moreover, one will come across a fundamental relationship between the Special Theory of Relativity and the mechanics of space lattice. In all previous formulations, the Einsteinian special principle of relativity, in one or the other form is used as the starting point for Special Relativity.

Continuum Thermodynamics and Constitutive Theory

English | PDF,EPUB | 2020 | 246 Pages | ISBN : 3030439887 | 14.99 MB

This book presents different thermodynamic approaches in the area of constitutive theory: thermodynamics of irreversible processes, rational thermodynamics, and extended thermodynamics. These different approaches are analyzed with respect to their presuppositions, as well as to their results, and each method is applied to several important examples. In many cases these examples are archetypes for numerous technologically important materials; i.e. complex materials having an internal structure. Some of the examples dealt with in this book are liquid crystals, colloid suspensions, and fiber suspensions.

Engineering Mathematics in Ship Design

Engineering Mathematics in Ship Design by Cristiano Fragassa
English | PDF | 2019 | 170 Pages | ISBN : N/A | 20.09 MB

With over that 70% of the Earth submerged by seas, continents separated by oceans, two thousand major islands scattered throughout the World, hundreds of thousands of kilometers of navigable rivers, maritime or fluvial transport surely represents one of the most important ways of moving people, goods, and wealth around the globe. This kind of transport has been widely used along the human history and development, allowing achievements not reachable in any other way in commercial, economic, technological, and even social aspects.
