Practical Sonochemistry: Applications of Power Ultrasound in Chemistry and Processing, Third Edition conveys the increasing growth in applications and equipment to power ultrasound. The book is written primarily for graduate students, postdoc researchers, and academics in applied chemistry and chemical engineering, as well as technicians and operators in relevant industry. Sonochemistry can do lots of amazing things in many different fields – but how and where do you start with applying it? This thoroughly updated edition offers a ground-up introduction to the fundamentals, applying power ultrasound to both lab and large-scale applications.The book answer questions such as does my laboratory have the equipment- what do I need? I have the equipment, but I have no idea how it works or how to use it- where do I start? I want to apply sonochemistry to a new reaction or processing method – what is the best approach? What types of sonochemistry equipment is available on the market and which is the best to choose? Can I scale up my reaction and if so, how do I do it, given that ultrasound is non-linear?

Modern Cosmology, Third Edition provides a detailed introduction to the field of cosmology. Beginning with the smooth, homogeneous universe described by a Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker metric, this trusted resource includes careful treatments of dark energy, big bang nucleosynthesis, recombination, and dark matter. The reader is then introduced to perturbations about an FLRW universe: their evolution with the Einstein-Boltzmann equations, their primordial generation by inflation, and their observational consequences: the acoustic peaks in the CMB; the E/B decomposition in polarization; gravitational lensing of the CMB and large-scale structure; and the BAO standard ruler and redshift-space distortions in galaxy clustering.This revised third edition includes updates such as new sections on gravitational waves, line intensity mapping, and emergent analysis techniques; expanded sections of CMB secondaries; and revised figures and pedagogy. These revisions serve to enhance a comprehensive foundational text, as well as provide users with improvements that are aligned with recent advances in the field, as well as modern focuses in the classroom.

Optics of the Moon offers a modern approach to lunar remote sensing. It presents methods for interpreting optics of surfaces with complicated structures, in particular, the lunar regolith. For example, this book illustrates how phase-ratio techniques can lead to the detection of surface structure anomalies and describes polarimetric studies of the lunar surface and their use. This book addresses many questions related to the surfaces of the Moon, such as why the Moon looks like a ball at a large phase angle and like a disk in full moon, why the lunar surface has slight color variations, and why at large phase angles its polarization degree closely correlates with albedo.Including historical perspectives, case studies, maps, and figures to enhance the understanding of both theory and techniques, Optics of the Moon is a valuable resource for researchers and students in lunar and planetary science and remote sensing.
