Modeling Volcanic Processes: The Physics and Mathematics of Volcanism

Buy

Understanding the physical behavior of volcanoes is key to mitigating the hazards active volcanoes pose to the ever-increasing populations living nearby. The processes involved in volcanic eruptions are driven by a series of interlinked physical phenomena, and to fully understand these, volcanologists must employ various physics subdisciplines. This book provides the first advanced-level, one-stop resource examining the physics of volcanic behavior and reviewing the state-of-the-art in modeling volcanic processes. Each chapter begins by explaining simple modeling formulations and progresses to present cutting-edge research illustrated by case studies. Individual chapters cover subsurface magmatic processes through to eruption in various environments and conclude with the application of modeling to understanding the other volcanic planets of our Solar System. Providing an accessible and practical text for graduate students of physical volcanology, this book is also an important resource for researchers and professionals in the fields of volcanology, geophysics, geochemistry, petrology and natural hazards.

A Concurrent Pascal Compiler for Minicomputers (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) (v. 50)
A Concurrent Pascal Compiler for Minicomputers (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) (v. 50)

This paper describes a seven-pass compiler for Per Brlnch Hansen's Concurrent Pascal [1,2] programing language. Concurrent Pascal is an abstract programming language for conputer operating systems. The language extends sequential Pascal [7] with the process, nonitor, and class concepts for structured concurrent programing. A ironitor is a...
