Title:Modeling and Simulation [electronic resource] : An Application-Oriented Introduction
Author(s): Hans-Joachim Bungartz
Stefan Zimmer
Martin Buchholz
Dirk Pflger
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

Title:Spectral Methods for Non-Standard Eigenvalue Problems [electronic resource] : Fluid and Structural Mechanics and Beyond
Author(s): Clin-Ioan Gheorghiu
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on the constructive and practical aspects of spectral methods. It rigorously examines the most important qualities as well as drawbacks of spectral methods in the context of numerical methods devoted to solvenon-standard eigenvalue problems. In addition, the book also considers some nonlinear singularly perturbed boundary value problems along with eigenproblems obtained by their linearization around constant solutions. The book ismathematical, poising problems in their proper functi on spaces, but its emphasis is on algorithms and practical difficulties. The range of applications is quite large. High order eigenvalue problems are frequently beset with numericalill conditioning problems. The book describes a wide variety of successful modifications to standard algorithms that greatly mitigate these problems. In addition, the book makes heavy use of the concept of pseudospectrum, which ishighly relevant to understanding when disaster is imminent in solving eigenvalue problems. It also envisions two classes of applications, the stability of some elastic structures and the hydrodynamic stability of some parallel shearflows. This book is an ideal reference text for professionals (researchers) in applied mathematics, computational physics and engineering. It will be very useful to numerically sophisticated engineers, physicists and chemists. The bookcan also be used as a textbook in review courses such as numerical analysis, computational methods in various engineering branches or physics and computational methods in analysis
Contents:1 General Formulation of Spectral Approximation
2 Tau and Galerkin Methods for Fourth Order GEPs

Title:Geometry and its Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Vladimir Rovenski
Pawe Walczak
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This volume has been divided into two parts: Geometry and Applications. The geometry portion of the book relates primarily to geometric flows, laminations, integral formulae, geometry of vector fields on Lie groups, andosculation the articles in the applications portion concern some particular problems of the theory of dynamical systems, including mathematical problems of liquid flows and a study of cycles for non-dynamical systems. This Work isbased on the second international workshop entitled Geom etry and Symbolic Computations, held on May 15-18, 2013 at the University of Haifa and is dedicated to modeling (using symbolic calculations) in differential geometry and itsapplications in fields such as computer science, tomography, and mechanics.

Title:Slow Viscous Flow [electronic resource]
Author(s): William E Langlois
Michel O Deville
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Leonardo wrote, 'Mechanics is the paradise of the mathematical sciences, because by means of it one comes to the fruits of mathematics' replace 'Mechanics' by 'Fluid mechanics' and here we are. - from the Preface to theSecond Edition Although the ex ponential growth of computer power has advanced the importance of simulations and visualization tools for elaborating new models, designs and technologies, the discipline of fluid mechanics is still large,and turbulence in flows remains a challenging prob lem in classical physics. Like its predecessor, the revised and expanded Second Edition of this book addresses the basic principles of fluid mechanics and solves fluid flow problemswhere viscous effects are the dominant physical phenomena. Much progress h as occurred in the nearly half a century that has passed since the edition of 1964. As predicted, aspects of hydrodynamics once considered offbeat have risen toimportance. For example, the authors have worked on problems where variations in viscosity and surface tension cannot be ignored. The advent of nanotechnology has broadened interest in the hydrodynamics of thin films, and hydromagneticeffects and radiative heat transfer are routinely encountered in materials processing. This monograph develops the basic equations, in the three most important coordinate systems, in a way that makes it easy to incorporate thesephenomena into the theory. The book originally described by Prof. Langlois as a monograph on theoretical hydrodynamics, written in the languag e of applied mathematics offers considerable new coverage including the second principleof thermodynamics, Boussinesq approximation, time dependent flows, Marangoni convection, Kovasznay flow, plane periodic solutions, Hele-Shaw cells, Stokeslets, rotlets , finite element methods, Wannier flow, corner eddies, and analysisof the Stokes operator

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

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:Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics in Multiphase Flows [electronic resource]
Author(s): Roberto Mauri
Date:2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Non-equilibrium thermodynamics is a general framework that allows the macroscopic description of irreversible processes. This book introduces non-equilibrium thermodynamics and its applications to the rheology of multiphaseflows. The subject is relev ant to graduate students in chemical and mechanical engineering, physics and material science. This book is divided into two parts. The first part presents the theory of non-equilibrium thermodynamics,reviewing its essential features and showing, when pos sible, some applications. The second part of this book deals with how the general theory can be applied to model multiphase flows and, in particular, how to determine theirconstitutive relations. Each chapter contains problems at the end, the solutions of which are given at the end of the book. No prior knowledge of statistical mechanics is required the necessary prerequisites are elements of transportphenomena and on thermodynamics. The style of the book is mathematical, but nonetheless it remains very r eadable and anchored in the physical world rather than becoming too abstract. Though it is up-to-date and includes recentimportant developments, there is a lot of classical material in the book, albeit presented with unprecedented clarity and coherence. T he first six chapters are actually a very good introduction to the theory underlying many phenomenain soft matter physics, beyond the focus on flow and transport of the later chapters of the book.

In this book, fluid mechanics is addressed from both physical and mathematical perspectives. As a first step, the basic theory of continuum mechanics isdetailed, pointing out the different assumptions and approximations that lead to conservation laws. As a second step, scaling studie s, dimensional analysis and similitude of the general equations help to introduce the inviscid Eulerfluid approximation, the Stokes approximation of viscous flow and Prandtlsboundary layer approximation. Lastly, the concepts of stability, turbulence and c ompressible flows are presented. Multiphysics approach of flows willprovide readers with deeper insights into basic and applied research on complex processing

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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:The Finite Element Method: Theory, Implementation, and Applications [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlyingmathematical principl es, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational formulations of partial differential equations, but with a minimum level of advanced mathematical machinery from functionalanalysis and partial differential equations. In principle, the material should be accessible to students with only knowledge of calculus of several variables, basic partial differential equations, and linear algebra, as the necessaryconcepts from more advanced analysis are introduced when needed. Thro ughout the text we emphasize implementation of the involved algorithms, and have therefore mixed mathematical theory with concrete computer code using the numericalsoftware MATLAB is and its PDE-Toolbox. We have also had the ambition to cover some of the most important applications of finite elements and the basic finite element methods developed for those applications, including diffusion andtransport phenomena, solid and fluid mechanics, and also electromagnetics.

Note:Focusing on research surrounding aspects of insufficiently studied problems of estimation and optimal control of random fields, this book exposes some important aspects of those fields for systems modeled by stochastic partialdifferential equations. It contains many results of interest to specialists in both the theory of random fields and optimal control theory who use modern mathematical tools for resolving specific applied problems, and presents researchthat has not previously been covered. More g enerally, this book is intended for scientists, graduate, and post-graduates specializing in probability theory and mathematical statistics. The models presented describe many processes inturbulence theory, fluid mechanics, hydrology, astronomy, and meteo rology, and are widely used in pattern recognition theory and parameter identification of stochastic systems. Therefore, this book may also be useful to appliedmathematicians who use probability and statistical methods in the selection of useful signals s ubject to noise, hypothesis distinguishing, distributed parameter systems optimal control, and more. Material presented in this monographcan be used for education courses on the estimation and control theory of random fields

Title:Introduction to Tensor Analysis and the Calculus of Moving Surfaces [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text is meant to deepen its readers understanding of vector calculus, differential geometry and related subjects in applied mathematics. Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this text invites itsaudience to take a fresh loo k at previously learned material through the prism of tensor calculus. Once the framework is mastered, the student is introduced to new material which includes differential geometry on manifolds, shapeoptimization, boundary perturbation, and dynamic fluid film equations. Tensor calculus is a powerful tool that combines the geometric and analytical perspectives and enables us to take full advantage of the computational utility ofcoordinate systems. The tensor approach can be of benefit to members of all te chnical sciences including mathematics and all engineering disciplines. If calculus and linear algebra are central to the readers scientific endeavors,tensor calculus is indispensable. The language of tensors, originally championed by Einstein, is as fund amental as the languages of calculus and linear algebra and is one that every technical scientist ought to speak. The tensortechnique, invented at the turn of the 20th century, is now considered classical. Yet, as the author shows, it remains remarkably v ital and relevant. The authors skilled lecturing capabilities are evident by the inclusion ofinsightful examples and a plethora of exercises. A great deal of material is devoted to the geometric fundamentals, the mechanics of change of variables, the prop er use of the tensor notation, and the discussion of the interplaybetween algebra and geometry. The early chapters have many words and few equations. The definition of a tensor comes only in Chapter 6 when the reader is ready for it. While this text main tains a reasonable level of rigor, it takesgreat care to avoid formalizing the subject. The last part of the textbook is devoted to the calculus of moving surfaces. It is the first textboo

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Since the parameters in dynamical systems of biological interest are inherently positive and bounded, bounded noises are a natural way to model the realistic stochastic fluctuations of a biological system that are caused by itsinteraction with the ex ternal world. Bounded Noises in Physics, Biology, and Engineering is the first contributed volumedevoted to the modeling of bounded noises in theoretical and applied statistical mechanics, quantitative biology,and mathematical physics.It gives an overview of the currentstate-of-the-art and isintended to stimulatefurther research. The volumeis organized in four parts. The first part presents the main kinds of bounded noises andtheir applications in theoretical physics. The theory of bounded stochastic pro cesses is intimately linked to its applications to mathematical and statistical physics, and it would be difficult and unnatural to separate the theory fromits physical applications. The second is devoted to framing bounded noises in the theory of random dynamical systems and random bifurcations, while the third is devoted to applications of bounded stochastic processes in biology, one ofthe major areas of potential applications of this subject. The final part concerns the application of bounded stochasti c processes in mechanical and structural engineering, the area where the renewed interest for non-Gaussian boundednoises started. Pure mathematicians working on stochastic calculus will find here a rich source of problems that are challenging from the poi nt of view of contemporary nonlinear analysis. Bounded Noises in Physics, Biology, andEngineering is intended for scientists working on stochastic processes with an interest in both fundamental issues and applications.It will appeal to a broad range of a pplied mathematicians, mathematical biologists, physicists,engineers, and researchers in other fields interested in complexity theory.

Note:This book focuses on the theoretical aspects of small strain theory of elastoplasticity with hardening assumptions. It provides a comprehensive and unified treatment of the mathematical theory and numerical analysis. It isdivided into three parts, wi th the first part providing a detailed introduction to plasticity, the second part covering the mathematical analysis of the elasticity problem, and the third part devoted to error analysis of varioussemi-discrete and fully discrete approximations for var iational formulations of the elastoplasticity. This revised and expanded edition includes material on single-crystal and strain-gradient plasticity. In addition, the entire bookhas been revised to make it more accessible to readers who are actively involv ed in computations but less so in numerical analysis. Reviews of earlier edition: The authors have written an excellent book which can berecommended for specialists in plasticity who wish to know more about the mathematical theory, as well as those with a background in the mathematical sciences who seek a self-contained account of the mechanics and mathematics ofplasticity theory. (ZAMM, 2002) In summary, the book represents an impressive comprehensive overview of the mathematical approach to the theor y and numerics of plasticity. Scientists as well as lecturers and graduate studentswill find the book very useful as a reference for research or for preparing courses in this field. (Technische Mechanik) The book is professionally written and will be a us eful reference to researchers and students interested inmathematical and numerical problems of plasticity. It represents a major contribution in the area of continuum mechanics and numerical analysis. (Math Reviews)

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:Nonlinear Inclusions and Hemivariational Inequalities presents a broad insight into the theory of inclusions, hemivariational inequalities, and their applications to Contact Mechanics. The content of this volume gathers recentresults which are publis hed here for the first time and gives a largely self-contained and rigorous introduction to mathematical analysis of contact problems. The book will be of particular interest to students and young researchers inapplied and pure mathematics, civil, aeronau tical and mechanical engineering, and may also prove suitable as a supplementary text for an advanced one or two semester specialized course in mathematical modeling. This book introducesthe reader the theory of nonlinear inclusions and hemivariational i nequalities with emphasis on the study of Contact Mechanics. It covers both abstract existence and uniqueness results as well as the study of specific contact problems,including their modeling and variational analysis. New mathematical methods are introdu ced and applied in the study of nonlinear problems, which describe the contact between a deformable body and a foundation. The text is dividedinto three parts. Part I, entitled Background of Functional Analysis, gives an overview of nonlinear and functio nal analysis, function spaces, and calculus of nonsmooth operators. The material presented may be useful to students andresearchers from a broad range of mathematics and mathematical disciplines. Part II concerns Nonlinear Inclusions and Hemivariational I nequalities and is the core of the text in terms of theory. Part III, entitled Modeling and Analysisof Contact Problems shows applications of theory in static and dynamic contact problems with deformable bodies, where the material behavior is modeled with both elastic and viscoelastic constitutive laws. Particular attention is paidto the study of contact problems with piezoelectric materials. Bibliographical notes presented at the end of each part a

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Functional analysis owes much of its early impetus to problems that arise in the calculus of variations. In turn, the methods developed there have been applied to optimal control, an area that also requires new tools, such asnonsmooth analysis. This self-contained textbook gives a complete course on all these topics. It is written by a leading specialist who is also a noted expositor. This book provides a thorough introduction to functional analysis andincludes many novel elements as well as the stan dard topics. A short course on nonsmooth analysis and geometry completes the first half of the book whilst the second half concerns the calculus of variations and optimal control. Theauthor provides a comprehensive course on these subjects, from their inc eption through to the present. A notable feature is the inclusion of recent, unifying developments on regularity, multiplier rules, and the Pontryagin maximumprinciple, which appear here for the first time in a textbook. Other major themes include existen ce and Hamilton-Jacobi methods. The many substantial examples, and the more than three hundred exercises, treat such topics as viscositysolutions, nonsmooth Lagrangians, the logarithmic Sobolev inequality, periodic trajectories, and systems theory. They a lso touch lightly upon several fields of application: mechanics, economics, resources, finance, control engineering.Functional Analysis, Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control is intended to support several different courses at the first-year or secon d-year graduate level, on functional analysis, on the calculus of variations and optimalcontrol, or on some combination. For this reason, it has been organized with customization in mind. The text also has considerable value as a reference.
