Title:Principles of Astrophysics [electronic resource] : Using Gravity and Stellar Physics to Explore the Cosmos
Author(s): Charles Keeton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book gives a survey of astrophysics at the advanced undergraduate level. It originates from a two-semester course sequence at Rutgers University that is meant to appeal not only to astrophysics students but also morebroadly to physics and engine ering students. The organization is driven more by physics than by astronomy in other words, topics are first developed in physics and then applied to astronomical systems that can be investigated,rather than the other way around. The first half of the bo ok focuses on gravity. Gravity is the dominant force in many astronomical systems, so a tremendous amount can be learned by studying gravity, motion and mass. The theme inthis part of the book, as well as throughout astrophysics, is using motion to invest igate mass. The goal of Chapters 2-11 is to develop a progressively richer understanding of gravity as it applies to objects ranging from planets andmoons to galaxies and the universe as a whole. The second half uses other aspects of physics to address on e of the big questions. While Why are we here? lies beyond the realm of physics, a closely related question is withinour reach: How did we get here? The goal of Chapters 12-21 is to understand the physics behind the remarkable story of how the Universe, E arth and life were formed. This book assumes familiarity with vector calculus andintroductory physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, gas physics and atomic physics) however, all of the physics topics are reviewed as they come up (and vital aspects of vecto r calculus are reviewed in the Appendix). This volume isaimed at undergraduate students majoring in astrophysics, physics or engineering

Title:Solar System Astrophysics [electronic resource] : Background Science and the Inner Solar System
Author(s): Eugene F Milone
William J.F Wilson
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The second edition of Solar System Astrophysics: Background Science and the Inner Solar System provides new insights into the burgeoning field of planetary astronomy. As in the first edition, this volume begins with a rigoroustreatment of coordinate frames, basic positional astronomy, and the celestial mechanics of two and restricted three body system problems. Perturbations are treated in the same way, with clear step-by-step derivations. Then theEarths gravitational potential field and the Earth-Mo on system are discussed, and the exposition turns to radiation properties with a chapter on the Sun. The exposition of the physical properties of the Moon and the terrestrialplanets are greatly expanded, with much new information highlighted on the Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. All of the material is presented within a framework of historical importance. This book and its sister volume, Solar SystemAstrophysics: Planetary Atmospheres and the Outer Solar System, are pedagogically well written, providing clearly illustrated explanations, for example, of such topics as the numerical integration of the Adams-Williamson equation, theequations of state in planetary interiors and atmospheres, Maxwells equations as applied to planetary ionospheres and magnetosp heres, and the physics and chemistry of the Habitable Zone in planetary systems. Together, the volumesform a comprehensive text for any university course that aims to deal with all aspects of solar and extra-solar planetary systems. They will appeal separ ately to the intellectually curious who would like to know just how far ourknowledge of the solar system has progressed in recent years

Title:Geometry of Continued Fractions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Oleg Karpenkov
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Traditionally a subject of number theory, continued fractions appear in dynamical systems, algebraic geometry, topology, and even celestial mechanics. The rise of computational geometry has resulted in renewed interest inmultidimensional generalizati ons of continued fractions. Numerous classical theorems have been extended to the multidimensional case, casting light on phenomena in diverse areas of mathematics. This book introduces a new geometricvision of continued fractions. It covers several appli cations to questions related tosuch areas asDiophantine approximation, algebraic number theory, and toric geometry. The reader will find an overview of current progress inthe geometric theory of multidimensional continued fractions accompanied by current ly open problems. Whenever possible, we illustrate geometric constructions with figures and examples. Each chapter has exercises useful forundergraduate or graduate courses

Title:Henri Poincar [electronic resource] : Impatient Genius
Author(s): Ferdinand Verhulst
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book describes the life and work of Henri Poincar, detailing most of his unique achievements in mathematics and physics. It is divided into two partsthe first on Poincars life, and the second on his contributionsto the mathematical sciences. Apa rt from biographical details, attention is given to Poincars results on automorphic functions differential equations and dynamical systems celestial mechanics mathematical physics, in particularthe theory of the electron and relativity and topology (analy sis situs). A chapter on philosophy explains Poincars conventionalism in mathematics and his view of conventionalism in physics. The book shows how Poincar reachedhis fundamentally new results in many different fields, how he thought about problems, and h ow one should read his work. Simultaneously, it is made clear how analysis and geometry are intertwined in Poincars thinking and work. Indynamical systems, this becomes clear in his description of invariant manifolds, his association of differential equat ion flow with mappings, and his fixed-point theory. There is no comparable book on Poincar presenting such arelatively complete vision of his life and the working of his very original mind. Scientists and engineers as well as general readers interested in the history of science will find this book of interest. Reviews of this book:Thetitle of this biography is particularly well chosen : Henri Poincar was a true genius, and he was impatient. It gives a fair picture of both the man and the scientist, comple ted by particularly well chosen illustrations. Jean Mawhin,Universit Catholique de Louvain, Belgium Ferdinand Verhulst has written a true scientific biography, introducing Poincar the man, his cultural milieu, and his mathematics. This book shows why, a c entury after his death,Poincar's ideas still shape a substantial part of the mathematical sciences. Philip J Holmes, Princeton University, USA

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Classical mechanics is a chief example of the scientific method organizing a complex collection of information into theoretically rigorous, unifying principles in this sense, mechanics represents one of the highest forms ofmathematical modeling. This textbook covers standard topics of a mechanics course, namely, the mechanics of rigid bodies, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism, stability and small oscillations, an introduction to celestial mechanics,and HamiltonJacobi theory, but at the same time f eatures unique examplessuch as the spinning top including friction and gyroscopic compassseldom appearing in this context. In addition, variational principles like Lagrangianand Hamiltonian dynamics are treated in great detail. Using a pedagogical approac h, the author covers many topics that are gradually developed and motivated by classical examples. Through `Problems and Complements' sections at the endof each chapter, the work presents various questions in an extended presentation that is extremely use ful for an interdisciplinary audience trying to master the subject. Beautiful illustrations, unique examples, and useful remarks arekey features throughout the text. Classical Mechanics: Theory and Mathematical Modeling may serve as a textbook for advance d graduate students in mathematics, physics, engineering, and the natural sciences, as well as an excellentreference or self-study guide for applied mathematicians and mathematical physicists. Prerequisites include a working knowledge of linear algebra, m ultivariate calculus, the basic theory of ordinary differential equations, andelementary physics

Title:Between Theory and Observations [electronic resource] : Tobias Mayer's Explorations of Lunar Motion, 1751-1755
Author(s): Steven Wepster
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 18th century purely scientific interests as well as the practical necessities of navigation motivated the development of new theories and techniques to accurately describe celestial and lunar motion. Tobias Mayer, a Germanmathematician and ast ronomer, was among the most notable scientists of the time in the area of lunar theory. Between Theory and Observations presents a detailed and rigorous account of Tobias Mayers work his famous contributionis his extensive set of lunar tables, which were the most accurate of their time. This book gives a complete and accurate account, not to be found elsewhere in the literature, of Tobias Mayer's important contributions to the study oflunar motion. The book highlights and examines three of Mayer's major a chievements: - The computational scheme embodied in Mayer's lunar tables is examined and traced back to the scheme of Newton's 1702 lunar theory with its decidedlynon-dynamical characteristics. - Mayer's dynamical lunar theory is compared to Euler's work in celestial mechanics of the same period. Evidence is presented refuting the commonly held opinion that Mayer's lunar theory was simply amodification of Euler's theory. - Mayer's technique of adjusting the coefficients of his lunar tables to fit an exten sive collection of observational data is examined in detail. The scale of Mayer's effort was unprecedented andpreceded the invention of the least squares method by half a century. This volume is intended for historians of mathematics and/or astronomy as w ell as anyone interested in the historical development of the theory of lunar motion

Note:This book presents an overview of the outcomes resulting from applying the dynamical systems approach to space mission design, a topic referred to as Space Manifold Dynamics (SMD). It is a natural follow-on to theinternational workshop Novel Spaceway s for Scientific and Exploration Missions, which was held in October 2007 at the Telespazio Fucino Space Centre (Italy) under the auspices of the Space OPS Academy. The benefits and drawbacks ofusing the Lagrangian points and the associated trajectories f or present and future space missions are discussed. The related methods and algorithms are also described in detail. Each topic is presented in articles that were written asfar as possible to be self consistent the use of introductory sections and of exte nded explanations is included in order to address the different communities potentially interested in SMD: space science, the aerospace industry, mannedand unmanned exploration, celestial mechanics, and flight dynamics

Note:The study of chaotic behaviour in nonlinear, dynamical systems is now a well established research domain with ramifications into all fields of sciences, spanning a vast range of applications, from celestial mechanics, via climatechange, to the functi oning of brownian motors in cells. A more recent discovery is that chaos can be controlled and, under appropriate conditions, can actually be constructive in the sense of becoming a control parameter itself for thesystem under investigation, stochastic re sonance being a prime example. The present work is putting emphasis on the latter aspects, and after recalling the paradigm changes introduced by the concept of chaos, leads the readerskillfully through the basics of chaos control by detailing relevant al gorithms for both Hamiltonian and dissipative systems amongst others. The main part of the book is then devoted to the issue of synchronization in chaotic systems,an introduction to stochastic resonance and a survey of ratchet models. This short and conci se primer is particularly suitable for postgraduate students and non-specialist scientists from related areas, wishing to enter the fieldquickly and efficiently

Title:Hamiltonian Dynamical Systems and Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Walter Craig
Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Physical laws are for the most part expressed in terms of differential equations, and natural classes of these are in the form of conservation laws or of problems of the calculus of variations for an action functional. Theseproblems can generally be posed as Hamiltonian systems, whether dynamical systems on finite dimensional phase space as in classical mechanics, or partial differential equations (PDE) which are naturally of infinitely many degrees offreedom. This volume is the collected and extende d notes from the lectures on Hamiltonian dynamical systems and their applications that were given at the NATO Advanced Study Institute in Montreal in 2007. Many aspects of the moderntheory of the subject were covered at this event, including low dimension al problems as well as the theory of Hamiltonian systems in infinite dimensional phase space these are described in depth in this volume. Applications are alsopresented to several important areas of research, including problems in classical mechanics, con tinuum mechanics, and partial differential equations. These lecture notes cover many areas of recent mathematical progress in this field,including the new choreographies of many body orbits, the development of rigorous averaging methods which give hope fo r realistic long time stability results, the development of KAM theory for partial differential equations in one andin higher dimensions, and the new developments in the long outstanding problem of Arnold diffusion. It also includes other contributions to celestial mechanics, to control theory, to partial differential equations of fluid dynamics,and to the theory of adiabatic invariants. In particular the last several years has seen major progress on the problems of KAM theory and Arnold diffusion accordi ngly, this volume includes lectures on recent developments of KAM theoryin infinite dimensional phase space, and descriptions of Arnold diffusion using variational methods as well as geometrical appro

Title:Integrable Systems in Celestial Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Diarmuid Mathna
Date:2008
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work presents a unified treatment of three important integrable problems relevant to both Celestial and Quantum Mechanics. Under discussion are the Kepler (two-body) problem and the Euler (two-fixed center) problem, thelatter being the more comp lex and more instructive, as it exhibits a richer and more varied solution structure. Further, because of the interesting investigations by the 20th century mathematical physicist J.P. Vinti, the Euler problemis now recognized as being intimately linked t o the Vinti (Earth-satellite) problem. Here the analysis of these problems is shown to follow a definite shared pattern yielding exact forms for the solutions. A central feature is thedetailed treatment of the planar Euler problem where the solutions are expressed in terms of Jacobian elliptic functions, yielding analytic representations for the orbits over the entire parameter range. This exhibits the rich andvaried solution patterns that emerge in the Euler problem, which are illustrated in the appendix . A comparably detailed analysis is performed for the Earth-satellite (Vinti) problem. Key features: * Highlights shared features in theunified treatment of the Kepler, Euler, and Vinti problems * Raises challenges in analysis and astronomy, placing this trio of problems in the modern context * Includes a full analysis of the planar Euler problem * Highlights thecomplex and surprising orbit patterns that arise from the Euler problem * Provides a detailed analysis and solution for the Earth-satellite probl em The analysis and results in this work will be of interest to graduate students inmathematics and physics (including physical chemistry) and researchers concerned with the general areas of dynamical systems, statistical mechanics, and mathematical physi cs and has direct application to celestial mechanics, astronomy,orbital mechanics, and aerospace engineering

Note:Solar System Astrophysics: A Text for the Science of Planetary Systems covers the field of solar system astrophysics beginning with basic tools of spherical astronomy, coordinate frames, and celestial mechanics. Historicalintroductions precede the de velopment and discussion in most chapters. After a basic treatment of the two- and restricted three-body system motions in Background Science and the Inner Solar System, perturbations are discussed, followedby the Earth's gravitational potential field and its effect on satellite orbits. This is followed by analysis of the Earth-Moon system and the interior planets. In Planetary Atmospheres and the Outer Solar System, the atmosphereschapters include detailed discussions of circulation, applicable also to t he subsequent discussion of the gas giants. The giant planets are discussed together, and the thermal excesses of three of them are highlighted. This is followedby chapters on moons and rings, mainly in the context of dynamical stability, comets and meteo rs, meteorites and asteroids, and concludes with an extensive discussion of extrasolar planets. The contents of Solar System Astrophysics: AText for the Science of Planetary Systems have been field-tested by students for many years. Eugene F. Milone and W illiam J.F. Wilson have written a unique book that presents an up-to-date overview on all essential topics based onextensive experience in the classroom

Note:Perturbation theory and in particular normal form theory has shown strong growth during the last decades. So it is not surprising that the authors have presented an extensive revision of the first edition of the Averaging Methodsin Nonlinear Dynamica l Systems book. There are many changes, corrections and updates in chapters on Basic Material and Asymptotics, Averaging, and Attraction. Chapters on Periodic Averaging and Hyperbolicity, Classical (first level)Normal Form Theory, Nilpotent (classical) No rmal Form, and Higher Level Normal Form Theory are entirely new and represent new insights in averaging, in particular its relation with dynamical systems and the theory of normal forms. Alsonew are surveys on invariant manifolds in Appendix C and averagi ng for PDEs in Appendix E. Since the first edition, the book has expanded in length and the third author, James Murdock has been added. Review of First Edition One ofthe most striking features of the book is the nice collection of examples, which range fr om the very simple to some that are elaborate, realistic, and of considerable practical importance. Most of them are presented in careful detailand are illustrated with profuse, illuminating diagrams. - Mathematical Reviews

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on the method of canonical transformation of variables and the classical perturbation theory, this innovative book treats the systematic theory of symplectic mappings for Hamiltonian systems and its application to the studyof the dynamics and c haos of various physical problems described by Hamiltonian systems. It develops a new, mathematically-rigorous method to construct symplectic mappings which replaces the dynamics of continuous Hamiltonian systemsby the discrete ones. Applications of the m apping methods encompass the chaos theory in non-twist and non-smooth dynamical systems, the structure and chaotic transport in the stochastic layer, the magnetic field lines in magneticallyconfinement devices of plasmas, ray dynamics in waveguides, etc. The book is intended for postgraduate students and researches, physicists and astronomers working in the areas of plasma physics, hydrodynamics, celestial mechanics,dynamical astronomy, and accelerator physics. It should also be useful for applied mathema ticians involved in analytical and numerical studies of dynamical systems

Title:Methods of Celestial Mechanics [electronic resource] : Volume I: Physical, Mathematical, and Numerical Principles

Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:G. Beutler's Methods of Celestial Mechanics is a coherent textbook for students in physics, mathematics and engineering as well as an excellent reference for practitioners. This Volume I gives a thorough treatment of celestialmechanics and presents a ll the necessary mathematical details that a professional would need. After a brief review of the history of celestial mechanics, the equations of motion (Newtonian and relativistic versions) are developed forplanetary systems (N-body-problem), for artifi cial Earth satellites, and for extended bodies (which includes the problem of Earth and lunar rotation). Perturbation theory is outlined in an elementary way from generally knownmathematical principles without making use of the advanced tools of analytica l mechanics. The variational equations associated with orbital motion - of fundamental importance for parameter estimation (e.g., orbit determination),numerical error propagation, and stability considerations - are introduced and their properties discusse d in considerable detail. Numerical methods, especially for orbit determination and orbit improvement, are discussed inconsiderable depth. The algorithms may be easily applied to objects of the planetary system and to Earth satellites and space debris

Title:Methods of Celestial Mechanics [electronic resource] : Volume II: Application to Planetary System, Geodynamics and Satellite Geodesy

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:G. Beutler's Methods of Celestial Mechanics is a coherent textbook for students as well as an excellent reference for practitioners. Volume II is devoted to the applications and to the presentation of the program systemCelestialMechanics. Three major areas of applications are covered: (1) Orbital and rotational motion of extended celestial bodies. The properties of the Earth-Moon system are developed from the simplest case (rigid bodies) to moregeneral cases, including the rotation of an elastic Eart h, the rotation of an Earth partly covered by oceans and surrounded by an atmosphere, and the rotation of an Earth composed of a liquid core and a rigid shell (Poincar model).(2) Artificial Earth Satellites. The oblateness perturbation acting on a satelli te and the exploitation of its properties in practice is discussed using simulation methods (CelestialMechanics) and (simplified) first order perturbationmethods. The perturbations due to the higher-order terms of the Earth's gravitational potential and r esonant perturbations are considered thereafter. Special attention is paid to satellites of the Global Navigation Satellite Systemsand to geostationary satellites. The characteristics of and models for the two most important non-gravitational forces, atmo spheric drag and radiation pressure, are presented as well as the most relevant forces acting on high- andlow-orbiting satellites. (3) Evolution of the Planetary System. The outer planetary system consisting of the planets Jupiter to Pluto is studied over long time intervals using simulation methods and spectral analysis(CelestialMechanics). The properties of the inner systems, in particular of the Earth's orbit, are made visible by integrating the entire system over long time intervals relevant for clima te change. The distribution of minor planetsand their orbital properties, regular orbits, and chaotic orbits are easily generated and analyzed using CelestialMechanics. The volume concludes with the d

Note:The papers in this volume cover a wide range of subjects covering the most recent developments in Celestial Mechanics from the theoretical point of nonlinear dynamical systems to the application to real problems. We emphasize thepapers on the formati on of planetary systems, their stability and also the problem of habitable zones in extrasolar planetary systems. A special topic is the stability of Trojans in our planetary system, where more and more realisticdynamical models are used to explain their complex motions: besides the important contribution from the theoretical point of view, the results of several numerical experiments unraveled the structure of the stable zone around thelibrations points. This volume will be of interest to astronomers and mathematicians interested in Hamiltonian mechanics and in the dynamics of planetary systems
