Spherical Harmonic () pages by Catherine Asaro. When we last saw Dyhianna "Dehya" Selei in the Radiant Seas the Traders had boarded the orbiter and were chasing her, Eldrin and Taquinil. Eldrin was captured by the traders while she and Taquinil escaped into the Lock and disappeared into the psiberweb/Kyle space/5.

- that takes care of the "ortho-" part of "orthonormal"; the "-normal" portion is because the factors in front of the defining expression for spherical harmonics were set so that the integral of the square of a spherical harmonic over the sphere's surface is 1.

$\endgroup$ –. Spherical harmonics were first used for surface representation for radial or stellar surfaces r (θ, ϕ) (e.g., [53,62]), where the radial function, r (θ, ϕ), encodes the distance of surface points from a chosen ühler et al.

[60,56] extended this spherical harmonics expansion technique to more general shapes by representing a surface using three spherical functions.

A real valued function f of real variables is said to be Harmonic if it has continuous Partial derivatives of 1st & 2nd order & if it satisfies Laplace's equation then f is called Harmonic Function. Solution of Laplace eqn is called Harmonics. "Spherical Harmonic" is the seventh book in Catherine Asaro's somewhat non-linear Skolian Saga.

Having dealt with many of the other major members of the Valdoria-Skolia-Selei family, Asaro now turns her attention to Dyhianna, the Ruby Pharoah and the woman that created the means by which the Skolian Imperialiate functions as it does: the those of you not familiar with Asaro's 5/5(5).

Example Spherical Harmonic Expansion. Consider the problem of determining the electrostatic potential within a charge-free spherical region of radius r 0, with the potential on the spherical bounding surface specified as an arbitrary function V(r 0, θ, φ) of the angular coordinates θ and potential V(r, θ, φ) is the solution of the Laplace equation satisfying the boundary.

Catherine Asaro is a popular SF writer, combining her diverse talents to blend hard science fiction and heartrending romance into a sweeping epic known as the Saga of the Skolian Empire.

SPHERICAL HARMONIC, the seventh Skolian tale is an engaging outer space novel that will excite fans of the series. The story line hops around the galaxy faster than the speed of light, but that is a two edged light saber as the action never stops, but the subplots do not fully mesh/5(8).

Spherical Harmonic, book 7 in the Skolian Saga series, is my first book by Catherine Asaro, and unfortunately it doesn’t stand on its own at all. A memorably poetic expression of unusual scientific concepts is blended with an ungainly tale of interstellar court intrigue.

So much of this book seems to be recapping from earlier titles in the series, retold from a distant and rather cold. SPHERICAL HARMONIC Catherine Asaro, Author. Tor $ (p) ISBN Buy this book weaves scientific descriptions of Kyle space, spherical harmonics and orbitals with.

Spherical Harmonic is Catherine Asaro’s latest offering in the Skolian Saga. To put it in perspective, this book is the direct sequel to The Radiant Seas, itself the direct sequel to Primary Inversion.

While it overlaps over books in the saga, it is a full story in its own right. While the two books mentioned above focus on Sauscony Valdoria, Jagernaut and Imperator of the Skolian Empire. 1 Properties of Spherical Harmonics Repetition In the lecture the spherical harmonics were introduced as the eigenfunctions of angular momentum operators and in spherical coordinates.

We found that [] and. [] The spherical harmonics can be defined as [] where is the quantum number of the orbital angular momentum and the magnetic File Size: KB. For genus-0 closed brain surfaces, the optimized spherical harmonic parameterization, which aligns landmarks to consistent locations on the sphere, has been widely used.

This approach is limited by the loss of bijectivity under large deformations and the slow by: Then the tesseral harmonic divides the sphere into sectors of alternate positive and negative values.

Hence they are called sectorial harmonics. Examples of zonal and sectorial harmonics are shown in Figure A 2. Surface Spherical Harmonics. The general expression for the surface spherical harmonic of an arbitrary function f((Theta),(Lambda)) is.

Note that in order for the latter expression to be true, we might reasonably expect the vector spherical harmonics to be constructed out of sums of products of spherical harmonics and the eigenvectors of the operator defined above.

This is the vector analogue of constructing a spinor wavefunction in. Click to read more about Spherical Harmonic by Catherine Asaro.

The spherical harmonics are orthonormal with respect to integration over the surface of the unit sphere. For, where is the associated Legendre function. For. For certain special arguments, SphericalHarmonicY automatically evaluates to exact values.

SphericalHarmonicY can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision. We know the general form of a spherical harmonic is Ym l =B m l e im˚Pm l (cos) (1) The raising and lowering operators in spherical coordinates are L = he¯ i˚ @ @ icot @ @˚ (2) The effect of these operators on the spherical harmonics is: L Y m l =h¯ p (l m)(l m+1)Ym 1 (3) A formula for the derivative of the associated Legendre function is File Size: 96KB.

8 CHAPTER 1. SPHERICAL HARMONICS Therefore, the eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on S1 are the restrictions of the harmonic polynomials on R 2to S 1and we have a Hilbert sum decomposition, L(S) = L 1 k=0 H k(S 1).

It turns out that this phenomenon generalizes to the sphere S n R +1 for all n 1. Let us take a look at next case, n= 2. Plots of the real parts of the first few spherical harmonics, where distance from origin gives the value of the spherical harmonic as a function of the spherical angles ϕ \phi ϕ and θ \theta represents positive values and yellow represents negative values [1].

Spherical harmonic mathematical analysis The procedure to generate the 2-D surface of a 3-D particle is qualitatively the same as in generating the 1-D surface of a 2-D particle.

Starting from the center of mass, which is defined in 3-D similarly to 2-D, line segments are positioned from the center of mass to the surface at various angles (i.

The seventh volume in Asaro's Skolian space opera has less sex and sadism than previous outings (The Quantum Rose,etc.) as Dyhianna Selei, a telepathic psychic-webmaster and Pharaoh of the Ruby Dynasty, brokers an uncertain peace with the vile, slave-keeping Aristo Traders.

When used for the spherical harmonic transform (SHT) up to order N, a design of N = floor(t/2) should be used, or equivalently t>=2N. For more details see the function getTdesign(). The Fliege-Maier nodes is another example of nearly-uniform arrangements that along with their respective integration weights can be used for direct integration.

When viewed in this way, one finds that these polynomials all satisfy Laplace's equation in ${\bf R}^3$, i.e., they are harmonic. This is where the name spherical harmonics originates and it was first used by Thomson (Lord Kelvin) and Tait in their classic book Treatise on Natural Philosophy [3, Appendix B].Spherical Harmonic (The Saga of the Skolian Empire, Book 7) / Asaro, Catherine / ISBN (1 copy separate) Spherical Harmonic / Asaro, Catherine / ISBN (1 copy separate) Spherical harmonic / Asaro, Catherine / ISBN (1 copy separate) Spherical Harmonic (Saga of the Skolian Empire #7) / Asaro, Catherine / ISBN 4/5(3).
