Title:Mathematical Models for Poroelastic Flows [electronic resource]
Author(s): Anvarbek Meirmanov
Date:2014
Publisher:Paris : Atlantis Press : Imprint: Atlantis Press
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book is devoted to rigorous derivation of macroscopic mathematical models as a homogenization of exact mathematical models at the microscopic level. The idea is quite natural: one first must describe the joint motion of theelastic skeleton and th e fluid in pores at the microscopic level by means of classical continuum mechanics, and then use homogenization to find appropriate approximation models (homogenized equations). The Navier-Stokes equations stillhold at this scale of the pore size in the order of 5 15 microns. Thus, as we have mentioned above, the macroscopic mathematical models obtained are still within the limits of physical applicability. These mathematical modelsdescribe different physical processes of liquid filtration and acoustics in poroelastic media, such as isothermal or non-isothermal filtration, hydraulic shock, isothermal or non-isothermal acoustics, diffusion-convection, filtrationand acoustics in composite media or in porous fractured reservoirs. Our research is based upon the Nguetseng two-scale convergent method

Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides an introduction to mathematical and computer-oriented modeling and to simulation as a universal methodology. It therefore addresses various model classes and their derivations. And it demonstrates the diversityof approaches that ca n be taken: be it discrete or continuous, deterministic or stochastic. A common underlying theme throughout the book are the means in which one obtains practical simulation results from these different abstractmodels. Subsequent to a brief review of the mathematical tools that are required, the concept of the simulation pipeline, from model derivation to the simulation, is applied to 14 example scenarios from diverse fields such asGame theory - deciding - planning, Traffic on highways and data highways, Dynamical systems and Physics in the computer. Whether it is game theory or mathematical finance, traffic or control theory, populationdynamics or chaos, or molecular dynamics, continuum mechanics or computer graphics - the reader gains insight into the world of simulation in a descriptive yet systematic way

Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:This textbook presents the physical principles pertinent to the mathematical modeling of soft materials used in engineering practice, including both man-made materials and biological tissues. It is intended for seniors andmasters-level graduate stude nts in engineering, physics, or applied mathematics. It will also be a valuable resource for researchers working in mechanics, biomechanics, and other fields where the mechanical response of soft solids isrelevant. Soft Solids: A Primer to the Theoretica l Mechanics of Materials is divided into two parts. Part I introduces the basic concepts needed to give both Eulerian and Lagrangian descriptions of the mechanical response of softsolids. Part II presents two distinct theories of elasticity and their asso ciated theories of viscoelasticity. Seven boundary-value problems are studied over the course of the book, each pertaining to an experiment used to characterizematerials. These problems are discussed at the end of each chapter, giving students the opportu nity to apply what they learned in the current chapter and to build upon the material in prior chapters

Note:Mechanics of Advanced Functional Materials emphasizes the coupling effect between the electric and mechanical field in the piezoelectric, ferroelectric and other functional materials. It also discusses the size effect on theferroelectric domain insta bility and phase transition behaviors using the continuum micro-structural evolution models. Functional materials usually have a very wide application in engineering due to their unique thermal, electric,magnetic, optoelectronic, etc., functions. Almost a ll the applications demand that the material should have reasonable stiffness, strength, fracture toughness and the other mechanical properties. Furthermore, usually the stress andstrain fields on the functional materials and devices have some important c oupling effect on the functionality of the materials. Much progress has been made concerning the coupling electric and mechanical behaviors such as the coupledelectric and stress field distribution in piezoelectric solids, ferroelectric domain patterns in ferroelectrics, fracture and failure properties under coupled electric and stress field, etc. The book is intended for researchers andpostgraduate students in the fields of mechanics, materials sciences and applied physics who are interested to work on t he interdisciplinary mathematical modeling of the functional materials.

Title:Quasi-Stationary Distributions [electronic resource] : Markov Chains, Diffusions and Dynamical Systems

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Main concepts of quasi-stationary distributions (QSDs) for killed processes are the focus of the present volume. For diffusions, the killing is at the boundary and for dynamical systems there is a trap. The authors present theQSDs as the ones that al low describing the long-term behavior conditioned to not being killed. Studies in this research area started with Kolmogorov and Yaglom and in the last few decades have received a great deal of attention. Theauthors provide the exponential distribution pr operty of the killing time for QSDs, present the more general result on their existence and study the process of trajectories that survive forever. For birth-and-death chains anddiffusions, the existence of a single or a continuum of QSDs is described. Th ey study the convergence to the extremal QSD and give the classification of the survival process. In this monograph, the authors discuss Gibbs QSDs forsymbolic systems and absolutely continuous QSDs for repellers. The findings described are relevant to re searchers in the fields of Markov chains, diffusions, potential theory, dynamical systems, and in areas where extinction is acentral concept. The theory is illustrated with numerous examples. The volume uniquely presents the distribution behavior of indiv iduals who survive in a decaying population for a very long time. It also provides the background forapplications in mathematical ecology, statistical physics, computer sciences, and economics

Note:This book offers a brief, practically complete, and relatively simple introduction to functional analysis. It also illustrates the application of functional analytic methods to the science of continuum mechanics. Abstract butpowerful mathematical not ions are tightly interwoven with physical ideas in the treatment of nontrivial boundary value problems for mechanical objects. This second edition includes more extended coverage of the classical andabstract portions of functional analysis. Taken togethe r, the first three chapters now constitute a regular text on applied functional analysis. This potential use of the book is supported by a significantly extended set of exerciseswith hints and solutions. A new appendix, providing a convenient listing of e ssential inequalities and imbedding results, has been added. The book should appeal to graduate students and researchers in physics, engineering, andapplied mathematics. Reviews of first edition: This book covers functional analysis and its application s to continuum mechanics. The presentation is concise but complete, and is intended for readers in continuum mechanics whowish to understand the mathematical underpinnings of the discipline. . . . Detailed solutions of the exercises are provided in an app endix. (LEnseignment Mathematique, Vol. 49 (1-2), 2003) The reader comes away with aprofound appreciation both of the physics and its importance, and of the beauty of the functional analytic method, which, in skillful hands, has the power to dissolve and clarify these difficult problems as peroxide does clotted blood.Numerous exercises. . .test the readers comprehension at every stage.

Note:Mathematical Modeling for Complex Fluids and Flows provides researchers and engineering practitioners encountering fluid flows with state-of-the-art knowledge in continuum concepts and associated fluid dynamics. In doing so itsupplies the means to de sign mathematical models of these flows that adequately express the engineering physics involved. It exploits the implicit link between the turbulent flow of classical Newtonian fluids and the laminar andturbulent flow of non-Newtonian fluids such as thos e required in food processing and polymeric flows. The book develops a descriptive mathematical model articulated through continuum mechanics concepts for these non-Newtonian,viscoelastic fluids and turbulent flows. Each complex fluid and flow is examined in this continuum context as well as in combination with the turbulent flow of viscoelastic fluids. Some details are also explored via kinetic theory,especially viscoelastic fluids and their treatment with the Boltzmann equation. Both solution and modeli ng strategies for turbulent flows are laid out using continuum concepts, including a description of constructing polynomialrepresentations and accounting for non-inertial and curvature effects. Ranging from fundamental concepts to practical methodology, a nd including discussion of emerging technologies, this book is ideal for those requiring asingle-source assessment of current practice in this intricate yet vital field

Date:2012
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a work in four parts, dealing with the mechanics and thermodynamics of materials with memory, including properties of the dynamical equations which describe their evolution in time under varying loads. The first part is anintroduction to Cont inuum Mechanics with sections dealing with classical Fluid Mechanics and Elasticity, linear and non-linear. The second part is devoted to Continuum Thermodynamics, which is used to derive constitutive equations ofmaterials with memory, including viscoelas tic solids, fluids, heat conductors and some examples of non-simple materials. In part three, free energies for materials with linear memory constitutive relations are comprehensively explored.The new concept of a minimal state is also introduced. Formula e derived over the last decade for the minimum and related free energies are discussed in depth. Also, a new single integral free energy which is a functional of the minimalstate is analyzed in detail. Finally, free energies for examples of non-simple mat erials are considered. In the final part, existence, uniqueness and stability results are presented for the integrodifferential equations describing thedynamical evolution of viscoelastic materials. A new approach to these topics, based on the use of mini mal states rather than histories, is discussed in detail. There are also chapters on the controllability of thermoelastic systemswith memory, the Saint-Venant problem for viscoelastic materials and on the theory of inverse problems

Title:Dissipative Ordered Fluids [electronic resource] : Theories for Liquid Crystals
Author(s): Andre M Sonnet
Epifanio G Virga
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a book on the dissipative dynamics of ordered fluids, with a particular focus on liquid crystals. It covers a whole range of different theories, mainly concerned with nematic liquid crystals in both their chiral andnonchiral variants. The aut hors begin by giving a detailed account of the molecular origins of orientational order in fluids. They then go on to develop a general framework in which continuum theories for ordered fluids can be phrased.Within this unified setting, they cover both we ll-established classical theories and new ones with aspects that are not yet completely settled. The book treats a wide range of hydrodynamic theories for liquid crystals, from theoriginal 1960s works by Ericksen and Leslie to new, fast-developing ideas o f liquid crystal science. The final chapter is devoted to nematoacoustics and its applications. Old experiments on the propagation of ultrasound waves innematic liquid crystals are interpreted and explained in the light of a new theory developed within th e general theoretical infrastructure proposed in the body of the book. This book is intended both for graduate students andprofessional scholars in mathematics, physics, and engineering of advanced materials. It delivers a solid framework for liquid cryst al hydrodynamics and shows the unifying concepts at the basis of the classical theories. It illustrateshow these concepts can also be applied to a wide variety of modern topics. Andre M. Sonnet is in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the Uni versity of Strathclyde, Glasgow (Scotland) and Epifanio G. Virga is in theDepartment of Mathematics at the University of Pavia (Italy). They have a long history of working together in liquid crystal science and have contributed, in particular, to the theo ries of defects and biaxial nematics

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The first of three volumes on partial differential equations, this one introduces basic examples arising in continuum mechanics, electromagnetism, complex analysis and other areas, and develops a number of tools for theirsolution, in particular Fouri er analysis, distribution theory, and Sobolev spaces. These tools are then applied to the treatment of basic problems in linear PDE, including the Laplace equation, heat equation, and wave equation, as wellas more general elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbol ic equations. The book is targeted at graduate students in mathematics and at professional mathematicians with an interest in partial differential equations, mathematical physics,differential geometry, harmonic analysis, and complex analysis. In this seco nd edition, there are seven new sections including Sobolev spaces on rough domains, boundary layer phenomena for the heat equation, the space ofpseudodifferential operators of harmonic oscillator type, and an index formula for elliptic systems of such ope rators. In addition, several other sections have been substantially rewritten, and numerous others polished to reflectinsights obtained through the use of these books over time. Michael E. Taylor is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Ca rolina, Chapel Hill, NC. Review of first edition: These volumes will be read by severalgenerations of readers eager to learn the modern theory of partial differential equations of mathematical physics and the analysis in which this theory is rooted.

Title:Mechanics [electronic resource] : From Newton's Laws to Deterministic Chaos
Author(s): Florian Scheck
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book covers all topics in mechanics from elementary Newtonian mechanics, the principles of canonical mechanics and rigid body mechanics to relativistic mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. It was among the first textbooks toinclude dynamical system s and deterministic chaos in due detail. As compared to the previous editions the present fifth edition is updated and revised with more explanations, additional examples and sections on Noether's theorem.Symmetries and invariance principles, the basic ge ometric aspects of mechanics as well as elements of continuum mechanics also play an important role. The book will enable the reader to develop general principles from which equationsof motion follow, to understand the importance of canonical mechanics an d of symmetries as a basis for quantum mechanics, and to get practice in using general theoretical concepts and tools that are essential for all branches ofphysics. The book contains more than 120 problems with complete solutions, as well as some practica l examples which make moderate use of personal computers. This will be appreciated in particular by students using this textbook toaccompany lectures on mechanics. The book ends with some historical notes on scientists who made important contributions to the development of mechanics

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Homogenization is not about periodicity, or Gamma-convergence, but about understanding which effective equations to use at macroscopic level, knowing which partial differential equations govern mesoscopic levels, without usingprobabilities (which des troy physical reality) instead, one uses various topologies of weak type, the G-convergence of Sergio Spagnolo, the H-convergence of Franois Murat and the author, and some responsible for the appearance ofnonlocal effects, which many theories in continuum mechanics or physics guessed wrongly. For a better understanding of 20th century science, new mathematical tools must be introduced, like the authors H-measures, variants by PatrickGrard, and others yet to be discovered

Title:Hyperbolic Conservation Laws in Continuum Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Constantine M Dafermos
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a masterly exposition and an encyclopedic presentation of the theory of hyperbolic conservation laws. It illustrates the essential role of continuum thermodynamics in providing motivation and direction for the developmentof the mathematical t heory while also serving as the principal source of applications. The reader is expected to have a certain mathematical sophistication and to be familiar with (at least) the rudiments of analysis and thequalitative theory of partial differential equations , whereas prior exposure to continuum physics is not required. The target group of readers would consist of (a) experts in the mathematical theory of hyperbolic systems ofconservation laws who wish to learn about the connection with classical physics (b) specialists in continuum mechanics who may need analytical tools (c) experts in numerical analysis who wish to learn the underlying mathematicaltheory and (d) analysts and graduate students who seek introduction to the theory of hyperbolic systems of cons ervation laws. New to the 3rd edition is an account of the early history of the subject, spanning the period between 1800to 1957. Also new is a chapter recounting the recent solution of open problems of long standing in classical aerodynamics. Furthermore , the presentation of a number of topics in the previous edition has been revised and brought up todate, and the collection of applications has been substantially enriched. The bibliography, also expanded and updated, now comprises over fifteen hundred ti tles. From the reviews of the 2nd edition: The author is known as one of theleading experts in the field. His masterly written book is, surely, the most complete exposition in the subject. Evgeniy Panov, Zentralblatt MATH This book is sure to convince eve ry reader that working in this area is challenging,enlightening, and joyful. Katarina Jegdic, SIAM Review
