Plane-Wave Scattering-Matrix Theory of Antennas and Antenna-Antenna Interactions

Description: From Abstract: "This monograph is distinguished by the use of plane-wave spectra for the representation of fields in space and by the consideration of antenna-antenna (antenna-scatterer) interactions at arbitrary separation distances." From Preface: "The primary objective of this monograph is to facilitate the critical acceptance and proper application of antenna and field measurement techniques deriving more or less directly from the plane-wave scattering matrix (PWSM) theory of antennas and antenna-antenna interactions. A second objective is to present some recent and some new theoretical results based on this theory."

Evaluating the Impact of Securities Regulation on Venture Capital Markets

Description: Report providing a detailed and analytical assessment of the economic techniques used by researchers to evaluate the efficiency of capital markets. The application of these techniques to that portion of the capital market which supplies venture funds to small, technology-based firms is emphasized. The primary elements of such analysis are the "efficient market ' hypothesis" and the "capital asset pricing model." The empirical analogue of the latter is commonly referred to as the market model."

Electromagnetic Boundary-Value Problems Based Upon a Modification of Residue Calculus and Function Theoretic Techniques

Description: From Introduction: "The first part of this monograph is concerned with the analysis of closed region wave-guide junction problems. This allows simplification of the techniques to be used since no branch cuts are involved in the spectral representation of the fields. However, the analysis can be extended to open region problems in a logical manner. This is the subject of the second part of this monograph."

Measurement Assurance for Gage Blocks

Description: Report discussing the philosophy of measurement assurance and the three levels of measurement assurance programs. The measurement assurance programs are outlined to show how control over the measurement process can be maintained and how the offset (or systematic error) from the unit of length maintained by the National Bureau of Standards ban be made negligible. This monograph is intended for those who need to know on a continuing basis the uncertainty of their gage block calibration procedure.

The Nicrosil versus Nisil Thermocouple: Properties and Thermoelectric Reference Data

Description: From Abstract: "This monograph deals with the formulation and development of the new highly stable nickel-base thermocouple alloys Nicrosil (Ni-14.2Cr-1.4Si) and Nisil (Ni-4.4Si-0.1Mg) under the leadership of the Materials Research Laboratories (MRL) of the Australian Government of Defence, and their standardization by the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce."

Geometrical Considerations and Nomenclature for Reflectance

Description: Report presenting a unified approach to the specification of reflectance, in terms of both incident- and reflected- beam geometry. Nomenclature to facilitate this approach is proposed. Nomenclature for categorizing and specifying reflectance quantities for a variety of different beam configurations (both incident and reflected beams) is described, and all are defined and interrelated in terms of the bidirectional reflectance-distribution function. The conditions under which the formalism can be applied, including situations involving considerable sub-surface scattering, are carefully established. The entire treatment is limited to the domain of classical geometrical-optics radiometry and does not take into account interference and diffraction phenomena, such as are frequently encountered with highly coherent radiant flux.

Geometrical Considerations and Nomenclature for Reflectance

Description: Report issued by the U.S. National Bureau of Standards discussing specifications of reflectance and proposed nomenclature. As stated in the introduction, "this monograph presents a unified approach to the specification of reflectance in relation to the beam geometry of both the incident and the reflected flux in any reflectometer or in any application of measured reflectance data" (p. 1). This report includes illustrations.

Corrosion and Protection of Steel Piles in a Natural Seawater Environment

Description: From Introduction: "This paper describes some results of the first eight years of a fifteen year program in which a variety of coating and catholic protection systems are evaluated on their ability to protect steel piles in offshore conditions at Dam Neck, Virginia. It includes a description of the methods used in the evaluation and the results found on these systems."

Stress Corrosion Cracking Control Measures

Description: From Abstract: "This publication attempts to diminish the incidence of stress corrosion failures by assembling the available practical measures to avoid or minimize the problem and present these measures in a form comprehensible to those persons responsible for the design, fabrication, and maintenance of new structures."

Visual Range: Concepts, Instrumental Determination, and Aviation Applications

Description: From Abstract: "This document is a review of the principles, procedures, and instruments used in the measurement of visual range. The fundamental concepts of the visual range of the objects and lights are discussed. The principles of operation of the several classes of atmospheric attenuation meters are reviewed and representative instruments are described."

Relativistic Many-Body Bound Systems: Electromagnetic Properties

Description: Report presenting the formulae for the calculation of the electron scattering form factors, and of the static magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole moments, of relativistic many-body bound systems. The framework, given in NBS Monograph 147, is relativistic quantum field theory in the Schrodinger picture ; the physical particles, i.e. the solutions of the interacting fields, are given as linear combinations of the solutions of the free fields, called the parton fields. The parton-photon interaction is taken as given by minimal coupling, p -> p - eA ; in addition the contribution of the photon-vector meson vertex of the vector dominance model is derived.

The Dynamics of Fields of Higher Spin

The First Spectrum of Hafnium (HF I)

Description: Report continuing W. K. Meggers' previous analysis in LS-coupling. This coupling is not rigorous in Hf I, and many intervals are irregular. Consequently, the levels are given also in numerical order with the even and odd levels presented in separate tables. The long line lists are given in two Appendices: Appendix A contains the observed Zeeman data for the individual lines, 531 in all; Appendix B consists of the complete line list of observed and classified lines. By far the greater part of the analysis is that of Meggers.
