This book, the first in a two-volume set, provides an introduction to the fundamentals of (mainly) non-relativistic quantum mechanics. This first volume chiefly focuses on the essential principles, while applications and extensions of the formalism can be found in volume 2. Including but also moving beyond material that is covered in traditional textbooks on quantum mechanics, the book discusses in detail current issues such as... more...

This book will cover the latest methods for the structural design to mitigate potential damage due to high-speed winds, storm surges, tornadoes, and inland flooding (all of which could be brought on by hurricane conditions). It will provide detailed explanations of the new ASCE 7-16 standard (to be released in March of 2017) which deals with designing buildings to withstand loads, including wind, snow, earthquakes, etc. Unique to this... more...
