Qualitative Analysis of Physical Problems reviews the essential features of all the main approaches used for the qualitative analysis of physical problems and demonstrates their application to problems from a wide variety of fields. Topics covered include model construction, dimensional analysis, symmetry, and the method of the small parameter. This book consists of six chapters and begins by looking at various approaches for the construction of models, along with nontrivial applications of dimensional analysis to some typical model systems. The following chapters focus on the application of symmetry to the microscopic and macroscopic properties of systems; the implications of analyticity and occurrence of singularities; and some methods of deriving the magnitude of the solutions (that is, approximate numerical values) for problems that usually cannot be solved exactly in closed form. The final chapter demonstrates the use of qualitative analysis to address the problem of second harmonic generation in nonlinear optics. This monograph will be a useful resource for graduate students, experimental and theoretical physicists, chemists, engineers, college and high school teachers, and those who are interested in obtaining a general perspective of modern physics.

These twenty-eight contributions report advances in one of the most active research areas in artificial intellgence. Qualitative modeling techniques are an essential part of building second generation knowledge-based systems. This book provides a timely overview of the field while also giving some indications about applications that appear to be feasible now or in the near future. Chapters are organized into sections covering modeling and simulation, ontologies, computational issues, and qualitative analysis.Modeling a physical system in order to simulate it or solve particular problems regarding the system is an important motivation of qualitative physics, involving formal procedures and concepts. The chapters in the section on modeling address the problem of how to set up and structure qualitative models, particularly for use in simulation. Ontology, or the science of being, is the basis for all modeling. Accordingly, chapters on ontologies discuss problems fundamental for finding representational formalism and inference mechanisms appropriate for different aspects of reasoning about physical systems.Computational issues arising from attempts to turn qualitative theories into practical software are then taken up. In addition to simulation and modeling, qualitative physics can be used to solve particular problems dealing with physical systems, and the concluding chapters present techniques for tasks ranging from the analysis of behavior to conceptual design.Boi Faltings is Associate Professor of Computer Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne. Peter Struss is Head of the Advanced Reasoning Methods Group at Siemens Corporate Research and Development in Munich.

Readings in Qualitative Reasoning about Physical Systems describes the automated reasoning about the physical world using qualitative representations. This text is divided into nine chapters, each focusing on some aspect of qualitative physics. The first chapter deal with qualitative physics, which is concerned with representing and reasoning about the physical world. The goal of qualitative physics is to capture both the commonsense knowledge of the person on the street and the tacit knowledge underlying the quantitative knowledge used by engineers and scientists. The succeeding chapter discusses the qualitative calculus and its role in constructing an envisionment that includes behavior over both mythical time and elapsed time. These topics are followed by reviews of the mathematical aspects of qualitative reasoning, history-based simulation and temporal reasoning, as well as the intelligence in scientific computing. The final chapters are devoted to automated modeling for qualitative reasoning and causal explanations of behavior. These chapters also examine the qualitative kinematics of reasoning about shape and space. This book will prove useful to psychologists and psychiatrists.

8. 5 Summary In this chapter we have identified three basic patterns of influences that lead to ambiguity in the QP analysis of the basic active furnace state. We have then shown how modification of these patterns, by adding equilibrium values and sensitivity annotations on influence arcs, could permit resolu tion of the ambiguities. Finally, we have described in detail the extensions needed to the basic influence resolution algorithm in QP theory to oper ate on these extended descriptions. We have also shown that the modified influence resolution algorithm corrects an error in Forbus' original method for combining influences. We have then presented an extended example in which introduction of equilibrium assumptions eliminates all ambigu ity in the influence resolution deduction. In the next chapter we extend these techniques further, by developing a qualitative perturbation analysis technique that permits us to answer "what ir' control questions; then we extend this technique to obtain quantitative, as well as qualitative, effects of hypothetical control actions. 8.

Physical Methods in Chemical Analysis, Volume III focuses on the application of physical methods in chemical analysis, including chromatography, spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, and photometry. The selection first offers information on gas chromatography, electrochromatography, and electroanalytical methods in trace analysis. Discussions focus on analytical applications, apparatus and techniques, titration methods, anodic stripping of deposited metals, and polarography. The book then examines the high-frequency method of chemical analysis, field emission microscopy, and theory and principles of sampling for chemical analysis. The publication takes a look at flame photometry and microwave spectroscopy. Topics include sample treatment required for flame photometric determinations; factors affecting precision and accuracy in flame photometry; theoretical background of microwave spectroscopy, and problems connected with quantitative analysis. The manuscript then elaborates on analytical applications of nuclear magnetic resonance; fluorescent x-ray spectrometric analysis; and neutron spectroscopy and neutron interactions in chemical analysis. The selection is a dependable reference for readers interested in the application of physical methods in chemical analysis.

Constructive methods developed in the framework of analytic functions effectively extend the use of mathematical constructions, both within different branches of mathematics and to other disciplines. This monograph presents some constructive methods-based primarily on original techniques-for boundary value problems, both linear and nonlinear. From among the many applications to which these methods can apply, the authors focus on interesting problems associated with composite materials with a finite number of inclusions. How far can one go in the solutions of problems in nonlinear mechanics and physics using the ideas of analytic functions? What is the difference between linear and nonlinear cases from the qualitative point of view? What kinds of additional techniques should one use in investigating nonlinear problems? Constructive Methods for Linear and Nonlinear Boundary Value Problems serves to answer these questions, and presents many results to Westerners for the first time. Among the most interesting of these is the complete solution of the Riemann-Hilbert problem for multiply connected domains. The results offered in Constructive Methods for Linear and Nonlinear Boundary Value Problems are prepared for direct application. A historical survey along with background material, and an in-depth presentation of practical methods make this a self-contained volume useful to experts in analytic function theory, to non-specialists, and even to non-mathematicians who can apply the methods to their research in mechanics and physics.

The problem addressed in the current study was that disruptive student behavior is detrimental to learning because quality teacher-student interaction time is reduced. The purpose of this ethnographic research study was to explore relationship between disruptive behavior of students and leadership styles of teachers, parents and school leaders. Results indicated that in some cases, an individualized approach could help the K-6 elementary student by reducing their disruptive behavior. However, it was also confirmed that as part of this individualized approach, school-wide implementation might provide the level of support needed to prevent future disruptive behavioral problems as well as providing the positive role models for students to observe and emulate.
