Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Spontaneous potential (SP) well-logging is one of the most common and useful well-logging techniques in petroleum exploitation. This monograph is the first of its kind on the mathematical model of spontaneous potentialwell-logging and its numerical s olutions. The mathematical model established in this book shows the necessity of introducing Sobolev spaces with fractional power, which seriously increases the difficulty of proving the well-posednessand proposing numerical solution schemes. In this book , in the axi-symmetric situation the well-posedness of the corresponding mathematical model is proved and three efficient schemes of numerical solution are proposed, supported by anumber of numerical examples to meet practical computation needs

Title:Five Decades of Tackling Models for Stiff Fluid Dynamics Problems [electronic resource] : A Scientific Autobiography
Author(s): Radyadour Kh Zeytounian
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Rationality - as opposed to 'ad-hoc' - and asymptotics - to emphasize the fact that perturbative methods are at the core of the theory - are the two main concepts associated with the Rational Asymptotic Modeling (RAM) approach influid dynamics when t he goal is to specifically provide useful models accessible to numerical simulation via high-speed computing. This approach has contributed to a fresh understanding of Newtonian fluid flow problems and has openedup new avenues for tackling real fluid flow phenomena, which are known to lead to very difficult mathematical and numerical problems irrespective of turbulence. With the present scientific autobiography the author guides the readerthrough his somewhat non-traditional career first discovering fluid mechanics, and then devoting more than fifty years to intense work in the field. Using both personal and general historical contexts, this account will be of benefitto anyone interested in the early and contemporary developments of an important branch of theoretical and computational fluid mechanics

Title:Special Functions of Mathematical (Geo-)Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Willi Freeden
Martin Gutting
Date:2013
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Special functions enable us to formulate a scientific problem by reduction such that a new, more concrete problem can be attacked within a well-structured framework, usually in the context of differential equations. A goodunderstanding of special fun ctions provides the capacity to recognize the causality between the abstractness of the mathematical concept and both the impact on and cross-sectional importance to the scientific reality. The specialfunctions to be discussed in this monograph vary great ly, depending on the measurement parameters examined (gravitation, electric and magnetic fields, deformation, climate observables, fluid flow, etc.) and on the respective fieldcharacteristic (potential field, diffusion field, wave field). The differential equation under consideration determines the type of special functions that are needed in the desired reduction process. Each chapter closes with exercisesthat reflect significant topics, mostly in computational applications. As a result, readers are not only directly confronted with the specific contents of each chapter, but also with additional knowledge on mathematical fields ofresearch, where special functions are essential to application. All in all, the book is an equally valuable resource for educa tion in geomathematics and the study of applied and harmonic analysis. Students who wish to continue withfurther studies should consult the literature given as supplements for each topic covered in the exercises

Title:Permutation Tests in Shape Analysis [electronic resource]

Note:Statistical shape analysis is a geometrical analysis from a set of shapes in which statistics are measured to describe geometrical properties from similar shapes or different groups, for instance, the difference between male andfemale Gorilla skull s hapes, normal and pathological bone shapes, etc. Some of the important aspects of shape analysis are to obtain a measure of distance between shapes, to estimate average shapes from a (possibly random) sample andto estimate shape variability in a sample[1] . One of the main methods used is principal component analysis. Specific applications of shape analysis may befound in archaeology, architecture, biology, geography, geology, agriculture,genetics, medical imaging, security applications such as face recogn ition, entertainment industry (movies, games), computer-aided design and manufacturing. This is a proposal for a new Brief on statistical shape analysis and thevarious new parametric and non-parametric methods utilized to facilitate shape analysis.

Note:Computational Challenges in the Geosciences addresses a cross-section of grand challenge problems arising in geoscience applications, including groundwater and petroleum reservoir simulation, hurricane storm surge, oceanography,volcanic eruptions and landslides, and tsunamis. Each of these applications gives rise to complex physical and mathematical models spanning multiple space-time scales, which can only be studied through computer simulation. The datarequired by the models is often highly uncerta in, and the numerical solution of the models requires sophisticated algorithms which are mathematically accurate, computationally efficient and yet must preserve basic physical propertiesof the models. This volume summarizes current methodologies and futu re research challenges in this broad and important field.

Title:Geography of Order and Chaos in Mechanics [electronic resource] : Investigations of Quasi-Integrable Systems with Analytical, Numerical, and Graphical Tools
Author(s): Bruno Cordani
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This original monograph aims to explore the dynamics in the particular but very important and significant case of quasi-integrable Hamiltonian systems, or integrable systems slightly perturbed by other forces. With both analyticand numerical methods, the book studies several of these systemsincluding for example the hydrogen atom or the solar system, with the associated Arnold webthrough modern tools such as the frequency-modified fourier transform,wavelets, and the frequency-modulation indicator. Me anwhile, it draws heavily on the more standard KAM and Nekhoroshev theorems. Geography of Order and Chaos in Mechanics contains many figures that illuminate its concepts in novelways, but perhaps its most useful feature is its inclusion of software to rep roduce the various numerical experiments. The graphical user interfaces of five supplied MATLAB programs allows readers without any knowledge of computerprogramming to visualize and experiment with the distribution of order, chaos and resonances in variou s Hamiltonian systems. This monograph will be a valuable resource for professional researchers and certain advanced undergraduatestudents in mathematics and physics, but mostly will be an exceptional reference for Ph.D. students with an interest in pertur bation theory

Note:During the last three decades geosciences and geo-engineering were influenced by two essential scenarios: First, the technological progress has changed completely the observational and measurement techniques. Modern high speedcomputers and satellite based techniques are entering more and more all geodisciplines. Second, there is a growing public concern about the future of our planet, its climate, its environment, and about an expected shortage of naturalresources. Obviously, both aspects, viz. effic ient strategies of protection against threats of a changing Earth and the exceptional situation of getting terrestrial, airborne as well as spaceborne data of better and better qualityexplain the strong need of new mathematical structures, tools, and meth ods. Mathematics concerned with geoscientific problems, i.e., Geomathematics, is becoming increasingly important. The Handbook Geomathematics as a centralreference work in this area comprises the following scientific fields: (I) observational and measurem ent key technologies (II) modelling of the system Earth (geosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere) (III) analytic,algebraic, and operator-theoretic methods (IV) statistical and stochastic methods (V) computational and numerical analysis m ethods (VI) historical background and future perspectives

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:This book is a major revision of Numerical Methods for Wave Equations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics the new title of the second edition conveys its broader scope. The second edition is designed to serve graduate students andresearchers studying geoph ysical fluids, while also providing a non-discipline-specific introduction to numerical methods for the solution of time-dependent differential equations. The methods considered are those at the foundation ofreal-world atmospheric or ocean models, with th e focus being on the essential mathematical properties of each method. The fundamental character of each scheme is examined in prototypical fluid-dynamical problems like tracer transport,chemically reacting flow, shallow-water waves, and waves in an inter nally stratified fluid. The book includes exercises and is well illustrated with figures linking theoretical analyses to results from actual computations. Changes fromthe first edition include new chapters, discussions and updates throughout. Dale Durran is Professor and Chair of Atmospheric Sciences and Adjunct Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington. Reviews from the FirstEdition: This book will no doubt become a standard within the atmospheric science community, but its comfort able applied mathematical style will also appeal to many interested in computing advective flows and waves. It is acontemporary and worthy addition to the still-sparse list of quality graduate-level references on the numerical solution of PDEs.

Title:Spatial Statistics and Modeling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Carlo Gaetan
Xavier Guyon
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:Spatial statistics are useful in subjects as diverse as climatology, ecology, economics, environmental and earth sciences, epidemiology, image analysis and more. This book covers the best-known spatial models for three types ofspatial data: geostatis tical data (stationarity, intrinsic models, variograms, spatial regression and space-time models), areal data (Gibbs-Markov fields and spatial auto-regression) and point pattern data (Poisson, Cox, Gibbs andMarkov point processes). The level is relatively advanced, and the presentation concise but complete. The most important statistical methods and their asymptotic properties are described, including estimation in geostatistics,autocorrelation and second-order statistics, maximum likelihood methods, appr oximate inference using the pseudo-likelihood or Monte-Carlo simulations, statistics for point processes and Bayesian hierarchical models. A chapter isdevoted to Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation (Gibbs sampler, Metropolis-Hastings algorithms and exact simulation). A large number of real examples are studied with R, and each chapter ends with a set of theoretical and appliedexercises. While a foundation in probability and mathematical statistics is assumed, three appendices introduce some necessary back ground. The book is accessible to senior undergraduate students with a solid math background and Ph.D.students in statistics. Furthermore, experienced statisticians and researchers in the above-mentioned fields will find the book valuable as a mathematica lly sound reference. This book is the English translation of Modlisation etStatistique Spatiales published by Springer in the series Mathmatiques & Applications, a series established by Socit de Mathmatiques Appliques et Industrielles (SMAI). Carlo Gaetan is Associate Professor of Statistics in theDepartment of Statistics at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice.

Title:Percolation Theory for Flow in Porous Media [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert Ewing
Allen Hunt
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph presents, for the first time, a unified and comprehensive introduction to some of the basic transport properties of porous media, such as electrical and hydraulic conductivity, air permeability and diffusion. Thetreatment is based on c ritical path analysis and the scaling of transport properties which are individually described as functions of saturation. At the same time, the book supplies a tutorial on percolation theory for hydrologists,providing them with the tools for solving actu al problems. In turn, a separate chapter serves to introduce physicists to some of the language and complications of groundwater hydrology necessary for successful modelling. End of chapterproblems often indicate open questions, on which young researchers entering the field can readily start work on. This significantly revised and much expanded edition was made necessary by both the selling out of the first edition andthe rapid progress in the field. At the same time the tutorial aspects of the first few chapters have been considerably improved and the number of models, experiments and range of medium properties considered have been increased.Topics discussed for the first time in detail in this edition are advanced topological aspects of percolation theo ry that serve as a basis for examining dispersion aspects in porous media. The book is suitable for advanced graduatecourses, with selected problems and questions appearing at the end of each chapter. [...] I think the book is an important work that will guide soil scientists, hydrologists, and physicists to gain a better qualitative and quantitativeunderstanding of multitransport properties of soils.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Cities can be considered to be among the largest and most complex artificial networks created by human beings. Due to the numerous and diverse human-driven activities, urban network topology and dynamics can differ quitesubstantially from that of nat ural networks and so call for an alternative method of analysis. The intent of the present monograph is to lay down the theoretical foundations for studying the topology of compact urban patterns, usingmethods from spectral graph theory and statistical ph ysics. These methods are demonstrated as tools to investigate the structure of a number of real cities with widely differing properties: medieval German cities, the webs of citycanals in Amsterdam and Venice, and a modern urban structure such as found in Manhattan. Last but not least, the book concludes by providing a brief overview of possible applications that will eventually lead to a useful body ofknowledge for architects, urban planners and civil engineers

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Yearly global mean temperature and ocean levels, daily share prices, and the signals transmitted back to Earth by the Voyager space craft are all examples of sequential observations over time known as time series. This book givesyou a step-by-step in troduction to analysing time series using the open source software R. Each time series model is motivated with practical applications, and is defined in mathematical notation. Once the model has been introduced itis used to generate synthetic data, using R code, and these generated data are then used to estimate its parameters. This sequence enhances understanding of both the time series model and the R function used to fit the model to data.Finally, the model is used to analyse observed data taken from a practical application. By using R, the whole procedure can be reproduced by the reader. All the data sets used in the book are available on the websitehttp://staff.elena.aut.ac.nz/Paul-Cowpertwait/ts/. The book is written for undergraduate students of ma thematics, economics, business and finance, geography, engineering and related disciplines, and postgraduate students who may needto analyse time series as part of their taught programme or their research. Paul Cowpertwait is an associate professor in mat hematical sciences (analytics) at Auckland University of Technology with a substantial research record in boththe theory and applications of time series and stochastic models. Andrew Metcalfe is an associate professor in the School of Mathematical Science s at the University of Adelaide, and an author of six statistics text books and numerousresearch papers.

Title:Turbulence and Diffusion [electronic resource] : Scaling Versus Equations
Author(s): Oleg G Bakunin
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is an introduction to the multidisciplinary field of anomalous diffusion in complex systems, with emphasis on the scaling approach as opposed to techniques based on the quantitative analysis of underlying transportequations. Typical example s of such systems are turbulent plasmas, convective rolls, zonal flow systems and stochastic magnetic fields. From the more methodological point of view, the approach relies on the general use of correlationsestimates, quasilinear equations and continuous time random walk techniques. Yet, the mathematical descriptions are not meant to become a fixed set of recipes but rather develop and strengthen the reader's physical intuition andunderstanding on the underlying mechanisms involved. Most of the material stems from class-tested lectures, where graduate students where assumed to have a working knowledge of classical physics, fluid dynamics and plasma physics butotherwise no prior knowledge of the subject matter is assumed from the side of the reader

Note:Many times all of us could hear from mass media that an asteroid approached and swept past the Earth. Such an asteroid or comet will inevitably strike the planet some day. This volume considers hazards due to collisions withcosmic objects, particular ly in light of recent investigations of impacts by the authors. Each chapter written by an expert contains an overview of an aspect and new findings in the field. The main hazardous effects cratering,shock, aerial and seismic waves, fires, ejection of du st and soot, tsunami are described and numerically estimated. Numerical simulations of impacts and impact consequences have received much attention in the book. Fairly smallimpacting objects 50 -100 m in diameter pose a real threat to humanity and their i nfluence on the atmosphere and ionosphere is emphasized. Especially vulnerable are industrially developed areas with dense population, almost all Europeis one of them. Special chapters are devoted to the famous 1908 Tunguska event and new results of its s imulations, bolides in the atmosphere and impacts on the early Earth

Title:Tsunamis and Hurricanes [electronic resource] : A Mathematical Approach
Author(s): Ferdinand Cap
Date:2006
Publisher:Vienna : Springer Vienna
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Tsunamis and hurricanes have had a devastating impact on the population living near the coast during the year 2005. The calculation of the power and intensity of tsunamis and hurricanes are of great importance not only forengineers and meteorologists but also for governments and insurance companies. This book presents new research on the mathematical description of tsunamis and hurricanes. A combination of old and new approaches allows to derive anonlinear partial differential equation of fifth order describing the steepening up and the propagation of tsunamis. The description includes dissipative terms and does not contain singularities or two valued functions. The equivalenceprinciple of solutions of nonlinear large gas dynamics waves and of soluti ons of water wave equations will be used. An extension of the continuity equation by a source term due to evaporation rates of salt seawater will help tounderstand hurricanes. Detailed formula, tables and results of the calculations are given

Title:The Grammar of Graphics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Leland Wilkinson
Date:2005
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book was written for statisticians, computer scientists, geographers, researchers, and others interested in visualizing data. It presents a unique foundation for producing almost every quantitative graphic found inscientific journals, newspapers , statistical packages, and data visualization systems. While the tangible results of this work have been several visualization software libraries, this book focuses on the deep structures involved inproducing quantitative graphics from data. What are the rules that underlie the production of pie charts, bar charts, scatterplots, function plots, maps, mosaics, and radar charts? Those less interested in the theoretical andmathematical foundations can still get a sense of the richness and structure of the s ystem by examining the numerous and often unique color graphics it can produce. The second edition is almost twice the size of the original, with sixnew chapters and substantial revision. Much of the added material makes this book suitable for survey cour ses in visualization and statistical graphics. From reviews of the first edition: Destined to become a landmark in statisticalgraphics, this book provides a formal description of graphics, particularly static graphics, playing much the same role for graph ics as probability theory played for statistics. Journal of the American Statistical AssociationWilkinsons careful scholarship shows around every corner. This is a tour de force of the highest order. Psychometrika All geography and map libraries should ad d this book to their collections the serious scholar ofquantitative data graphics will place this book on the same shelf with those by Edward Tufte, and volumes by Cleveland, Bertin, Monmonier, MacEachren, among others, and continue the unending task of p roselytizing for the best instatistical data presentation by example and through scholarship like that of Leland Wilkinson. Cartographic Perspectives In summary, this is certainly a remarkabl
