    Most of the technologically important aspects of magnetic recording are reviewed in a nonmathematical manner. After a discussion of recording media and heads, the fundamentals of the media magnetization and writing processes are considered. The factors limiting the bandwidth, distortion, and signal-to-noise ratio of audio, instrumentation, video, and digital recording machines are analyzed. The pa... View full abstract»

  • Memristive devices and systems

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):209 - 223

    A broad generalization of memristors--a recently postulated circuit element--to an interesting class of nonlinear dynamical systems called memristive systems is introduced. These systems are unconventional in the sense that while they behave like resistive devices, they can be endowed with a rather exotic variety of dynamic characteristics. While possessing memory and exhibiting small-signal induc... View full abstract»

  • Faraday tarotion: New parameter for electromagnetic pulse propagation in magnetoplasma

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):224 - 228

    Extreme distortion and time-dependent Faraday rotation occur for propagation of short electromagnetic pulses in magneto-plasma, for some ranges of plasma parameters. In order to relate pulse and monochromatic waves for propagation-path diagnostic purposes, we introduce a new parameter for the transmitted pulse train which has properties that correspond very accurately to results that would be expe...

  • The many faces of the insulated antenna

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):228 - 238

    The development of the insulated antenna is outlined from its beginnings as an ocean cable. The generalization of the theory from that applicable only to coaxial lines with an outer conductor of infinite extent to an insulated antenna embedded in a relatively dense medium that may be a dielectric or a conductor is described. The properties of the eccentrically insulated antenna and their usefulnes... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive arrays—An introduction

    Adaptive array antenna systems are currently the subject of intense interest and investigation/development for radar and communications applications. The principal reason for the interest is their ability to automatically steer nulls onto undesired sources of interference, thereby reducing output noise and enhancing the detection of desired signals. These systems usually consist of an array of ant... View full abstract»

  • On charge decay in conducting media

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):274 - 276

    Mott et al. have attempted to provide an explanation of the unacceptably fast charge relaxation in good conductors that is predicted by the conventional analysis. It is shown here that their explanation is unsatisfactory. However, certain smaller but interesting features do emerge from a solution of the modified formulation. View full abstract»

  • Diffusion-free charge relaxation in a conducting medium

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):276 - 280
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (678 KB)

    The commonly used two-term relaxation equation can lead to inconsistencies, which researchers have sought to resolve by introducing diffusion and scattering-time effects. It is shown here that the complete equation ∂n~/∂t + σ/ε n~+ E→ċ grad→(nµ) = 0 is sufficient to account for charge flow, propagation effects ... View full abstract»

  • The Doppler effect in a reflecting system

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):280 - 281
    Cited by:  Papers (8)

    The Doppler shift is derived for light incident at any angle upon a perfectly reflecting mirror moving in any arbitrary direction. The resulting equations confirm that there should be no Doppler shift for light reflected from a transversely moving mirror. This result disproves several previous theoretical predictions.

    The classical and relativistic Doppler shifts are compared for light incident at any angle upon a perfectly reflecting mirror moving in any arbitrary direction. It is shown that experiments designed to test the theory of special relativity in reflecting systems must be accurate up to third order in v/c. View full abstract»

    The principles of a multivariable polynomial nonnegativity test, which has applications in several system theory problems, are discussed. Basically, the (n - 1)-vaxiable nonnegativity test problem is transformed into one which forms a subclass of the n-variable positivity test problem. The added details ate illustrated through a nontrivial example. View full abstract»
