Riguardo questo articolo

Neuware - The present volume is the second in a two-volume set dealing with modelling and numerical simulations in electrochemistry. Emphasis is placed on the aspect of nanoelectrochemical issues. It seems appropriate at this juncture to mention the n- growing body of opinion in some circles that George Box was right when he stated, three decades ago, that 'All models are wrong, but some are useful'. Actually, when the statement itself was made it would have been more appropriate to say that 'All models are inaccurate but most are useful nonetheless'. At present, however, the statement, as it was made, is far more appropriate and closer to the facts than ever before. Currently, we are in the midst of the age of massively abundant data. Today's philosophy seems to be that we do not need to know why one piece of information is better than another except through the statistics of incoming and outgoing links between information and this is good enough. It is why, both in principle and in practice, one can translate between two languages, without knowledge of either. While none of this can be ignored, and it may even be true that 'All models are wrong and increasingly you can succeed without them' the traditional approach of scienti c modelling is still the order of the day. That approach may be stated as hypothesize - measure - model - test. It is in this light that the present volume should be viewed. 518 pp. Englisch. Codice inventario libreria 9780387495842

Riassunto:

The present volume is the second in a two-volume set dealing with modelling and numerical simulations in electrochemistry. Emphasis is placed on the aspect of nanoelectrochemical issues. It seems appropriate at this juncture to mention the n- growing body of opinion in some circles that George Box was right when he stated, three decades ago, that “All models are wrong, but some are useful”. Actually, when the statement itself was made it would have been more appropriate to say that “All models are inaccurate but most are useful nonetheless”. At present, however, the statement, as it was made, is far more appropriate and closer to the facts than ever before. Currently, we are in the midst of the age of massively abundant data. Today’s philosophy seems to be that we do not need to know why one piece of information is better than another except through the statistics of incoming and outgoing links between information and this is good enough. It is why, both in principle and in practice, one can translate between two languages, without knowledge of either. While none of this can be ignored, and it may even be true that “All models are wrong and increasingly you can succeed without them” the traditional approach of scienti?c modelling is still the order of the day. That approach may be stated as hypothesize – measure – model – test. It is in this light that the present volume should be viewed.

MODERN ASPECTS OF ELECTROCHEMISTRY

No. 44

Edited by Mordechay Schlesinger

University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Topics in Number 44 include:

  • The basic mathematical models which arise in some electrochemical processes in regards to galvanic corrosion phenomena
  • Near field transducers and their related applications to nano-chemistry and electrochemistry
  • How symmetry considerations play a major role in modern scientific computation
  • The methods used in the analysis of electrochemical systems, including computer simulations and quantum and statistical mechanics
  • The techniques used to investigate ionic and solvent transfer and transport in electroactive materials
  • Monte Carlo simulations of the underpotential deposition of metal layers on metallic substrates
  • The range of models applied to localized corrosion processes and a review of recent work on the modeling of pitting corrosion
  • Descriptions of the conceptual structure of Density-Functional Theory and its practical applications
  • Whether scanning acoustic microscopy can be applied to nano-scaled electrochemically deposited thin film systems
  • The processes and equations underlying the modeling of the current distribution in electrochemical cells

From reviews of previous volumes:

"This long-standing series continues its tradition of offering high quality reviews of established and emerging subject areas, together with the less common aspects of electrochemical science ... Deserves a place in electrochemistry libraries and should prove useful to electrochemists and related workers."

-Chemistry and Industry

"Continues the valuable service that has been rendered by the Modern Aspects series."

- Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry

"Will definitely be of much use to researchers in the field of electrochemistry... The editors of this well-produced volume deserve all appreciation for maintaining the excellent standard of the series."

- Bulletin of Electrochemistry

"Extremely well-referenced and very readable ... Maintains the overall high standards of the series."

- Journal of the American Chemical Society
