Our knowledge of mass transfer processes has been extended and applied to various fields of science and engineering including industrial and manufacturing processes in recent years. Since mass transfer is a primordial phenomenon, it plays a key role in the scientific researches and fields of mechanical, energy, environmental, materials, bio, and chemical engineering. In this book, energetic authors provide present advances in scientific findings and technologies, and develop new theoretical models concerning mass transfer....
This book is dedicated to the memory of Gisèle Mersch whose life ended
prematurely in June 2002. Back in the 1970s, when few people were using
them, Gisèle introduced me to the arcane secrets of then advanced multivariate
I was already involved in more classical statistical studies undertaken
at Paris Observatory with Jean Jung: developing and applying maximumlikelihood
algorithms to stellar photometric and kinematic data in order to
derive absolute luminosities, distances and velocities in the solar neighborhood....
