Overview

This compendium is dedicated to Professor Stanford Solomon Penner in celebration of his seventieth birthday. The authors are his former students, associates, and friends, who have been profoundly influenced by him, primarily as a consequence of the example he set forth by his own work and habits, as well as by the leadership he provided in many technological endeavours. As one of the most prominent scientists of our times he has been particularly instrumental in advancing the frontiers of combustion technology, while, concomitantly, developing quantitative spectroscopy into a significant diagnostic discipline and assuming a world-renown position of leadership in energy issues. This book consists of papers in the fields of energy, combustion, and spectroscopy - subjects resplendent with his pioneering contributions. Among the topics included here are turbulent combustion, flame structure, detonation, spectroscopic diagnostics, spectroscopy of atmospheric gases and physical problems associated with nuclear reactors, as well as electric power distribution and energy conservation. Contained here also is his remarkable curriculum vitae and the formidable list of his publications. The editors take this opportunity of conveying to him their best wishes for continuing productive scholarship - the trademark of his life - for many years to come.
