    Abstract: The study aimed to develop a two-dimensional numerical model of a perturbed Earth’s satellite orbit under the influence of the Moon. The first step was to model, numerically, the Earth-satellite orbit. The interaction was assumed to be first order. The basis of the model was that for two-dimensional motion, influence in the radial direction does no... Show More

    Abstract: The quantum mystery began with the probabilistic interpretation of the wave function. However, this usefulness is definitive in Quantum Mechanics while the suspense continues. The present paper aims to investigate the origin of such a mystery. Hence, considering a relativistic charged particle in quantum vacuum, it appeared that: (i) from a classic... Show More

    Abstract: Lasers of high power densities are useful for a variety of material processing techniques. Laser heating of a finite homogeneous Silver Selenide slab is studied according to the hyperbolic heat conduction model. Laplace Integral transform technique is used to get the solution. This material suffers phase transition from semiconductor to metallic ph... Show More
