Mac OS X was released in March 2001, but many components, such as Mach and BSD, are considerably older. Understanding the design, implementation, and workings of Mac OS X requires examination of several technologies that differ in their age, origins, philosophies, and roles. Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach is the first book that dissects the internals of the system, presenting a detailed picture that grows incrementally as you read. For example, you will learn the roles of the firmware, the bootloader, the Mach and BSD kernel components (including the process, virtual memory, IPC, and file system layers), the object-oriented I/O Kit driver framework, user libraries, and other core pie...
The book of nothingness is the book of truth. It is about the undying truth in us. It is the melody that breaks us free from suffering, it is the song of life that lets you sing from your heart. The structure of the book is like a long poem, or a continued process of ever evolving teachings that take you to a higher and higher place until you become nothing. Read the book to know what you are.
Loneliness, heartbreak or loss can leave us feeling hopeless at times. Yet, such intense emotions often drive us to look beyond our immediate worldly existence, to question the meaning of life itself. In doing so, we grow spiritually stronger. The earlier poems in this book are cathartic, but then the tone shifts to higher thoughts on life and societal issues as well as musings on the divine nature of our existence. Just when you think life has left you broken, and you're falling apart, deep wisdom surfaces in trying times, truths spoken from the heart.
One of the most successful, fascinating and useful applications of mathematics has been in the study of motions of fluids (gases and liquids).The perfect or ideal fluids are characterized by the assumptions that for then the stress tensor is a linear function of the rate of strain tensor and the stress vector on a plane surface in contact with a fluid is normal to the surface. About seven decades ago phenomena were observed which could not be explained on the assumptions of this theory. When the assumptions of this theory were examined, it was considered feasible to relax the assumption of linearity between stress and rate of strain tensors. More general nonlinear relations between stress and rate of strain tensors were postulated. It immediately led to the development of theory of non-Newtonian fluids flows. #To extend the results of the flow and heat transfer behavior of Newtonian fluids to Non-Newtonian Reiner-Rivlin fluid. #To study the flow and heat transfer behaviour of Reiner-Rivlin fluid as it occur in industry under conditions, which arise there. The solution of each of the problems given in the book is an intellectual challenge.
