With its origins in the theories of continuous distributions of dislocations and
of metal plasticity, inhomogeneity theory is a rich and vibrant field of research.
The recognition of the important role played by configurational or material
forces in phenomena such as growth and remodelling is perhaps its greatest
present-day impetus. While some excellent comprehensive works approaching
the subject from different angles have been published, the objective of
this monograph is to present a point of view that emphasizes the differentialgeometric
aspects of inhomogeneity theory.
In reality, the reservoir rock space is a very
complex metamerism; however when caculating
according to the common way, in many cases, we
consider the void structure in the rocks as similar
fractal, and use suitable statistical approximate formula
to demonstrate the space in form of effective
homogene. When researching the layers, we take
the rock samples from one layer with different collector
parameter. To get a parameter value (grain
density, porosity, permeability, saturation etc.
Does a clone have a soul? Darling, an astronavigational control unit and personal companion, achieves sentience and wants to know. Now, 200 years and an artificial body later, he is off in search of a dead artist, a living artwork, and the forces behind a mystery that spans the universe. Accompanied by a female assassin, he'll confront the Maker and get the answer.
The purpose of this monograph is to formulate a quantitative and self-consistent theoretical
approach to wave–particle interactions occurring in space plasmas, and present
a logical development of the subject. In the Earth’s magnetosphere, Nature has given
us a plasma laboratory that is accessible to observations made by radio, magnetic and
electric instruments on the ground, and a great variety of instruments aboard rockets
and Earth-orbiting satellites. Spacecraft are making similar observations in the more
distant solar system.
