9780849313851: Polymer Thermodynamics: Blends, Copolymers and Reversible Polymerization
Review:

The morphology of materials is a fascinating field and structure-related properties are of key interest in product development and process engineering, resulting in materials with advanced performance in sustainable, environmentally friendly applications. … This text is a welcome and highly effective response to this challenge that must be met if we are to develop the sustainable technologies we shall certainly need to survive into the next century.
—From the Foreword by Harold Kroto, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Florida State University, Tallahassee, USA

From the Publisher:

Polymer Thermodynamics: Blends, Copolymers and Reversible Polymerization describes the thermodynamic basis for miscibility as well as the mathematical models used to predict the compositional window of miscibility and construct temperature versus volume-fraction phase diagrams. The book covers the binary interaction model, the solubility parameter approach, and the entropic difference model. Using equation of state (EOS) theories, thermodynamic models, and information from physical properties, it illustrates the construction of phase envelopes.

The book presents nine EOS theories, including some that take into account molecular weight effects. Characteristic values are given in tables. It uses the binary interaction model to predict the compositional window of miscibility for copolymer/homopolymer blends and blends of copolymers and terpolymers with common monomers. It discusses Hansen fractional solubility parameter values, six phase diagram types, the role of polymer architecture in phase behavior, and the mathematical framework for multiple glass transition temperatures found in partially miscible polymer blends. The author also illustrates biomedical and commercial applications of nanocomposites, the properties of various polymer alloys, Fick’s laws of diffusion and their implications during transient events, and the use of the dynamic programming method in the sequence alignment of DNA and proteins. The final chapter reviews the thermodynamics of reversible polymerization and copolymerization.

Polymer blends offer improved performance/cost ratios and the flexibility to tailor products to suit customers’ needs. Exploring physical phenomena, such as phase separation, this book provides readers with methods to design polymer blends and predict the phase behavior of binary polymer blends using desktop computers.

Descripción CRC Press/Ane Books, 1999. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. With all the material available in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and soft computing-texts, monographs, and journal articles-there remains a serious gap in the literature. Until now, there has been no comprehensive resource accessible to a broad audience yet containing a depth and breadth of information that enables the reader to fully understand and readily apply AI and soft computing concepts. Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing fills this gap. It presents both the traditional and the modern aspects of AI and soft computing in a clear, insightful, and highly comprehensive style. It provides an in-depth analysis of mathematical models and algorithms and demonstrates their applications in real world problems. Beginning with the behavioral perspective of "human cognition," the text covers the tools and techniques required for its intelligent realization on machines. The author addresses the classical aspects-search, symbolic logic, planning, and machine learning-in detail and includes the latest research in these areas. He introduces the modern aspects of soft computing from first principles and discusses them in a manner that enables a beginner to grasp the subject. He also covers a number of other leading aspects of AI research, including nonmonotonic and spatio-temporal reasoning, knowledge acquisition, and much more. Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing: Behavioral and Cognitive Modeling of the Human Brain is unique for its diverse content, clear presentation, and overall completeness. It provides a practical, detailed introduction that will prove valuable to computer science practitioners and students as well as to researchers migrating to the subject from other disciplines. INTRODUCTION TO AI AND SOFT COMPUTING Evolution of Computing Defining AI General Problem Solving Approaches in AI The Disciplines of AI A Brief History of AI Characteristic Requirement for the Realization of Intelligent Systems Programming Languages for AI Architecture for AI Machines Objective and Scope of the Book Summary THE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE OF COGNITION Introduction The Cognitive Perspective of Pattern Recognition Cognitive Models of Memory Mental Imagery Understanding a Problem A Cybernetic View to Cognition Scope of Realization of Cognition in AI Summary PRODUCTION SYSTEMS Introduction Production Rules The Working Memory The Control Unit / Interpreter Conflict Resolution Strategies An Alternative Approach for Conflict Resolution An Illustrative Production System The RETE Match Algorithm Types of Production Systems Forward versus Backward Production Systems General Merits of a Production System Knowledge Base Optimization in a Production System Conclusions PROBLEM SOLVING BY INTELLIGENT SEARCH Introduction General Problem Solving Approaches Heuristic Search Adversary Search Conclusions THE LOGIC OF PROPOSITIONS AND PREDICATES Introduction Formal Definitions Tautologies in Propositional Logic Theorem Proving by Propositional Logic Resolution in Propositional Logic Soundness and Completeness of Propositional Logic Predicate Logic Writing a Sentence into Clause Forms Unification of Predicates Robinson`s Inference Rule Different Types of Resolution Semi-Decidability Soundness and Completeness of Predicate Logic Conclusions PRINCIPLES OF LOGIC PROGRAMMING Introduction to PROLOG Programming Logic Programs - A Formal Definition A Scene Interpretation Program Illustrating Backtracking by flow of Satisfaction Diagrams The SLD Resolution Controlling Backtracking by CUT The NOT Predicate Negation as a Failure in Extended Logic Programs Fixed Points in Non-Horn Clause Based Programs Constraint Log Printed Pages: 816.
