Title: | Computational Experiment Approach to Advanced Secondary Mathematics Curriculum [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Sergei Abramovich |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book promotes the experimental mathematics approach in the context of secondary mathematics curriculum by exploring mathematical models depending on parameters that were typically considered advanced in the pre-digitaleducation era. This approac h, by drawing on the power of computers to perform numerical computations and graphical constructions, stimulates formal learning of mathematics through making sense of a computational experiment. It allowsone (in the spirit of Freudenthal) to bridge seri ous mathematical content and contemporary teaching practice. In other words, the notion of teaching experiment can be extended to include a true mathematical experiment. When usedappropriately, the approach creates conditions for collateral learning (in t he spirit of Dewey) to occur including the development of skills important for engineering applications of mathematics. In the context of a mathematics teachereducation program, this book addresses a call for the preparation of teachers capable of utilizi ng modern technology tools for the modeling-based teaching of mathematics with a focus on methods conducive to the improvement of the wholeSTEM education at the secondary level. By the same token, using the books pedagogy and its mathematical content in a pre-college classroom can assist teachers in introducing students to the ideas that develop the foundation ofengineering profession |

Note: | The book deals with the (elementary and introductory) theory of valuation rings. As explained in the introduction, this represents a useful and important viewpoint in algebraic geometry, especially concerning the theory ofalgebraic curves and their f unction fields. The correspondences of this with other viewpoints (e.g. of geometrical or topological nature) are often indicated, also to provide motivations and intuition for many results. Links witharithmetic are also often indicated. There are three a ppendices, concerning Hilberts Nullstellensatz (for which several proofs are provided), Puiseux series and Dedekind domains. There are also several exercises, often accompaniedby hints, which sometimes develop further results not included in full for brev ity reasons |

Title: | Weakly Wandering Sequences in Ergodic Theory [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Stanley Eigen Arshag Hajian Yuji Ito Vidhu Prasad |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The appearance of weakly wandering (ww) sets and sequences for ergodic transformations over half a century ago was an unexpected and surprising event. In time it was shown that ww and related sequences reflected significant anddeep properties of ergo dic transformations that preserve an infinite measure. This monograph studies in a systematic way the role of ww and related sequences in the classification of ergodic transformations preserving an infinitemeasure. Connections of these sequences to additi ve number theory and tilings of the integers are also discussed. The material presented is self-contained and accessible to graduate students. A basic knowledge of measure theory isadequate for the reader |

Title: | Bernoulli Numbers and Zeta Functions [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Tsuneo Arakawa Tomoyoshi Ibukiyama Masanobu Kaneko |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Two major subjects are treated in this book. The main one is the theory of Bernoulli numbers and the other is the theory of zeta functions. Historically, Bernoulli numbers were introduced to give formulas for the sums of powersof consecutive integers . The real reason that they are indispensable for number theory, however, lies in the fact that special values of the Riemann zeta function can be written by using Bernoulli numbers. This leads to more advancedtopics, a number of which are treated in this book: Historical remarks on Bernoulli numbers and the formula for the sum of powers of consecutive integers a formula for Bernoulli numbers by Stirling numbers the Clausenvon Staudttheorem on the denominators of Bernoulli numbers Kummer's congruence betw een Bernoulli numbers and a related theory of p-adic measures the EulerMaclaurin summation formula the functional equation of the Riemann zeta function andthe Dirichlet L functions, and their special values at suitable integers various formulas of exponen tial sums expressed by generalized Bernoulli numbers the relation between ideal classes of orders of quadratic fields and equivalenceclasses of binary quadratic forms class number formula for positive definite binary quadratic forms congruences between so me class numbers and Bernoulli numbers simple zeta functions of prehomogeneous vector spaces Hurwitz numbers |

Title: | Measurements of Spin-Orbit Angles for Transiting Systems [electronic resource] : Toward an Understanding of the Migration History of Exoplanets |
Author(s): |
Teruyuki Hirano |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This thesis presents accurate analyses of the spin-orbit angle for many remarkable transiting exoplanetary systems, including the first measurement of the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect for a multiple transiting system. The authorpresents the observatio nal methods needed to probe the spin-orbit angle, the relation between the stellar spin axis and planetary orbital axis. Measurements of the spin-orbit angle provide us a unique and valuable opportunity tounderstand the origin of close-in giant exoplanets , called hot Jupiters. The first method introduced involves observations of the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect (RM effect). The author points out the issues with the previoustheoretical modeling of the RM effect and derives a new and improved theory. Applica tions of the new theory to observational data are also presented for a number of remarkable systems, and the author shows that the new theory minimizesthe systematic errors by applying it to the observational data. The author also describes another metho d for constraining the spin-orbit angle: by combining the measurements of stellar flux variations due to dark spots on thestellar surface, with the projected stellar rotational velocity measured via spectroscopy, the spin-orbit angles along the line-of-si ght are constrained for the transiting exoplanetary systems reported by the Kepler spacetelescope |

Title: | Nevanlinna Theory in Several Complex Variables and Diophantine Approximation [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Junjiro Noguchi Jrg Winkelmann |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive account of higher dimensional Nevanlinna theory and its relations with Diophantine approximation theory for graduate students and interested researchers. This book with ninechapters systematically de scribes Nevanlinna theory of meromorphic maps between algebraic varieties or complex spaces, building up from the classical theory of meromorphic functions on the complex plane with full proofs in Chap. 1 tothe current state of research. Chapter 2 present s the First Main Theorem for coherent ideal sheaves in a very general form. With the preparation of plurisubharmonic functions, how the theory to be generalized in a higher dimension isdescribed. In Chap. 3 the Second Main Theorem for differentiably non-d egenerate meromorphic maps by Griffiths and others is proved as a prototype of higher dimensional Nevanlinna theory. Establishing such a Second Main Theorem forentire curves in general complex algebraic varieties is a wide-open problem. In Chap. 4, the Ca rtan-Nochka Second Main Theorem in the linear projective case and the Logarithmic Bloch-Ochiai Theorem in the case of general algebraicvarieties are proved. Then the theory of entire curves in semi-abelian varieties, including the Second Main Theorem of N oguchi-Winkelmann-Yamanoi, is dealt with in full details in Chap. 6. For that purpose Chap. 5 is devoted to thenotion of semi-abelian varieties. The result leads to a number of applications. With these results, the Kobayashi hyperbolicity problems are dis cussed in Chap. 7. In the last two chapters Diophantine approximation theory is dealt withfrom the viewpoint of higher dimensional Nevanlinna theory, and the Lang-Vojta conjecture is confirmed in some cases. In Chap. 8 the theory over function fields is d iscussed. Finally, in Chap. 9, the theorems of Roth, Schmidt,Faltings, and Vojta over number fields are presented and formulated in view of Nevanlinna theory with results motivated by those in Chaps. 4, |

Note: | This book, part of the seriesContributions in Mathematical and Computational Sciences,reviews recent developments in the theory of vertex operator algebras (VOAs) and their applications to mathematics and physics. Themathematical theory of VOAs orig inated from the famous monstrous moonshine conjectures of J.H. Conway and S.P. Norton, which predicted a deep relationship between the characters of the largest simple finite sporadic group, the Monster,and the theory of modular forms inspired by the obse rvations of J. MacKay and J. Thompson. The contributions are based on lectures delivered at the 2011 conference on Conformal Field Theory, Automorphic Forms and Related Topics,organized by the editors as part of a special program offered at Heidelberg Un iversity that summer under the sponsorship of the MAThematics Center Heidelberg (MATCH) |

Title: | Neural Fields [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications |
Author(s): |
Stephen Coombes Peter beim Graben Roland Potthast James Wright |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | With this book, the editors present the first comprehensive collection in neural field studies, authored by leading scientists in the field - among them are two of the founding-fathers of neural field theory. Up to now, researchresults in the field h ave been disseminated across a number of distinct journals from mathematics, computational neuroscience, biophysics, cognitive science and others. Starting with a tutorial for novices in neural field studies, thebook comprises chapters on emergent pattern s, their phase transitions and evolution, on stochastic approaches, cortical development, cognition, robotics and computation, large-scale numerical simulations, the coupling of neural fieldsto the electroencephalogram and phase transitions in anesthesia. The intended readership are students and scientists in applied mathematics, theoretical physics, theoretical biology, and computational neuroscience. Neural field theoryand its applications have a long-standing tradition in the mathematical and computati onal neurosciences. Beginning almost 50 years ago with seminal work by Griffiths and culminating in the 1970ties with the models of Wilson and Cowan,Nunez and Amari, this important research area experienced a renaissance during the 1990ties by the groups of Ermentrout, Bressloff, Haken, and Wright. Since then, much progress has been made in both, the development of mathematical andnumerical techniques, and in physiological refinement and understanding. In contrast to large-scale neural network models desc ribed by huge connectivity matrices that are computationally expensive in numerical simulations, neural fieldmodels described by connectivity kernels allow for analytical treatment by means of functional analysis methods. Thus, a number of rigorous result s on the existence of bump and wave solutions or on inverse kernel construction problemsare nowadays available. Moreover, neural fields provide an important interface for the coupling of continuous neur |

Title: | Optical Coatings [electronic resource] : Material Aspects in Theory and Practice |
Author(s): |
Olaf Stenzel |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Optical coatings, i.e. multilayer stacks composed from a certain number of thin individual layers, are an essential part of any optical system necessary to tailor the properties of the optical surfaces. Hereby, the performance ofany optical coating i s defined by a well-balanced interplay between the properties of the individual coating materials and the geometrical parameters (such as film thickness) which define their arrangement. In all scientific booksdealing with the performance of optical coatin gs, the main focus is on optimizing the geometrical coating parameters, particularly the number of individual layers and their thickness. At the same time, much less attention is paid toanother degree of freedom in coating design, namely the possibility t o tailor optical material properties to an optimum relevant for the required specification. This book, on the contrary, concentrates on the material aside of theproblem. After a comprehensive review of the basics of thin film theory, traditional optical c oating material properties and their relation to the efficiency of coating design methods, emphasis is placed on novel results concerning theapplication of material mixtures and nanostructured coatings in optical coating theory and practice, including por ous layers, dielectric mixtures as well as metal island films for different applications |

Title: | Polarization Bremsstrahlung [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Andrey V Korol Andrey V Solov'yov |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book introduces and reviews both theory and applications of polarizational bremsstrahlung, i.e. the electromagnetic radiation emitted during collisions of charged particles with structured, thus polarizable targets, such asatoms, molecules and c lusters. The subject, following the first experimental evidence a few decades ago, has gained importance through a number of modern applications. Thus, the study of several radiative mechanisms is expected tolead to the design of novel light sources, ope rating in various parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Conversely, the analysis of the spectral and angular distribution of the photon emission constitutes a new tool for extractinginformation on the interaction of the colliding particles, and on their internal structure and dynamical properties. Last but not least, accurate quantitative descriptions of the photon emission processes determine the radiativeenergy losses of particles in various media, thereby providing essential information required for e.g. plasma diagnostics as well as astrophysical and medical applications (such as radiation therapy). This book primarilyaddresses graduate students and researchers with a background in atomic, molecular, optical or plasma physics, but will also be of b enefit to anyone wishing to enter the field. |

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 |

Note: | The complexity of todays statistical data calls for modern mathematical tools. Many fields of science make use of mathematical statistics and require continuous updating on statistical technologies. Practice makes perfect,since mastering the tools ma kes them applicable. Our book of exercises and solutions offers a wide range of applications and numerical solutions based on R. In modern mathematical statistics, the purpose is to provide statisticsstudents with a number of basic exercises and also an u nderstanding of how the theory can be applied to real-world problems. The application aspect is also quite important, as most previous exercise books are mostly on theoreticalderivations. Also we add some problems from topics often encountered in recent r esearch papers. The book was written for statistics students with one or two years of coursework in mathematical statistics and probability, professors whohold courses in mathematical statistics, and researchers in other fields who would like to do some e xercises on math statistics |

Title: | Algebraic K-theory of Crystallographic Groups [electronic resource] : The Three-Dimensional Splitting Case |
Author(s): |
Daniel Scott Farley Ivonne Johanna Ortiz |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The Farrell-Jones isomorphism conjecture in algebraic K-theory offers a description of the algebraic K-theory of a group using a generalized homology theory. In cases where the conjecture is known to be a theorem, it gives apowerful method for comput ing the lower algebraic K-theory of a group. This book contains a computation of the lower algebraic K-theory of the split three-dimensional crystallographic groups, a geometrically important class ofthree-dimensional crystallographic group, representing a third of the total number. The book leads the reader through all aspects of the calculation. The first chapters describe the split crystallographic groups and their classifyingspaces. Later chapters assemble the techniques that are needed to apply the i somorphism theorem. The result is a useful starting point for researchers who are interested in the computational side of the Farrell-Jones isomorphismconjecture, and a contribution to the growing literature in the field |

Author(s): |
Ross G Pinsky |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The primary intent of the book is to introduce an array of beautiful problems in a variety of subjects quickly, pithily and completely rigorously to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The book takes a number ofspecific problems and solves them, the needed tools developed along the way in the context of the particular problems. It treats a mlange of topics from combinatorial probability theory, number theory, random graph theory andcombinatorics. The problems in this book involve the asymp totic analysis of a discrete construct as some natural parameter of the system tends to infinity. Besides bridging discrete mathematics and mathematical analysis, the book makesa modest attempt at bridging disciplines. The problems were selected with an e ye toward accessibility to a wide audience, including advanced undergraduate students. The book could be used for a seminar course in which students presentthe lectures |

Title: | The Influence of Demographic Stochasticity on Population Dynamics [electronic resource] : A Mathematical Study of Noise-Induced Bistable States and Stochastic Patterns |
Author(s): |
Tommaso Biancalani |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The dynamics of population systems cannot be understood within the framework of ordinary differential equations, which assume that the number of interacting agents is infinite. With recent advances in ecology, biochemistry andgenetics it is becoming increasingly clear that real systems are in fact subject to a great deal of noise. Relevant examples include social insects competing for resources, molecules undergoing chemical reactions in a cell and a poolof genomes subject to evolution.When the popul ation size is small, novel macroscopic phenomena can arise, which can be analyzed using the theory of stochastic processes. This thesis is centered on two unsolved problems in populationdynamics: the symmetry breaking observed in foraging populations, and the robustness of spatial patterns. We argue that these problems can be resolved with the help of two novel concepts: noise-induced bistable states and stochasticpatterns |

Title: | Algebraic Number Theory [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Frazer Jarvis |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The technical difficulties of algebraic number theory often make this subject appear difficult to beginners. This undergraduate textbook provides a welcome solution to these problems as it provides an approachable and thoroughintroduction to the topi c. Algebraic Number Theory takes the reader from unique factorisation in the integers through to the modern-day number field sieve. The first few chapters consider the importance of arithmetic in fields largerthan the rational numbers. Whilst some results generalise well, the unique factorisation of the integers in these more general number fields often fail. Algebraic number theory aims to overcome this problem. Most examples are takenfrom quadratic fields, for which calculations are easy to perform. The middle section considers more general theory and results for number fields, and the book concludes with some topics which are more likely to be suitable foradvanced students, namely, the analytic class number formula and the number field sieve. This is t he first time that the number field sieve has been considered in a textbook at this level |

Title: | Measurement of the Inclusive Electron Cross-Section from Heavy-Flavour Decays and Search for Compressed Supersymmetric Scenarios with the ATLAS Experiment [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Moritz Backes |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The first part of this thesis presents the measurement of the inclusive cross-section for electron production from heavy-flavour decays in the electron transverse momentum range 7 GeV < pT < 26 GeV using 1.3 pb1 of 7 TeVproton-proton collision data c ollected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in 2010. The measured value of the cross-section within the fiducial range of the analysis is _e^HF = 0.946 0.020(stat.) 0.146(syst.) 0.032(lumi.) b. Theoretical predictions are in good agree ment with the measurement. The second part of this thesis is a search for compressed supersymmetric scenarios in events with missing transverse energy, jets, and oneisolated low-pT lepton in the final state using 4.7 fb-1 of ATLAS data collected at 7 TeV center-of-mass energy in 2011. No significant excess of events over the Standard Model expectation is observed and exclusion limits are derivedfor a number of supersymmetric models |

Note: | In early April 1911 Albert Einstein arrived in Prague to become full professor of theoretical physics at the German part of Charles University. It was there, for the first time, that he concentrated primarily on the problem ofgravitation. Before he l eft Prague in July 1912 he had submitted the paper Relativitt und Gravitation: Erwiderung auf eine Bemerkung von M. Abraham in which he remarkably anticipated what a future theory of gravity should looklike. At the occasion of the Einstein-in-Prague cente nary an international meeting was organized under a title inspired by Einstein's last paper from the Prague period: Relativity and Gravitation, 100 Years after Einstein inPrague. The main topics of the conference included: classical relativity, numerical relativity, relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, quantum gravity, experimental aspects of gravitation, and conceptual and historical issues. Theconference attracted over 200 scientists from 31 countries, among them a number of leading experts in the f ield of general relativity and its applications. This volume includes abstracts of the plenary talks and full texts ofcontributed talks and articles based on the posters presented at the conference. These describe primarily original results of the authors . Full texts of the plenary talks are included in the volume General Relativity, Cosmology andAstrophysics--Perspectives 100 Years after Einstein in Prague, eds. J. Bik and T. Ledvinka, published also by Springer Verlag |

Title: | From Real to Complex Analysis [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
R. H Dyer D. E Edmunds |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The purpose of this book is to provide an integrated course in real and complex analysis for those who have already taken a preliminary course in real analysis. It particularly emphasises the interplay between analysis andtopology. Beginning with the theory of the Riemann integral (and its improper extension) on the real line, the fundamentals of metric spaces are then developed, with special attention being paid to connectedness, simple connectednessand various forms of homotopy. The final chapter d evelops the theory of complex analysis, in which emphasis is placed on the argument, the winding number, and a general (homology) version of Cauchy's theorem which is proved using theapproach due to Dixon. Special features are the inclusion of proofs of M ontel's theorem, the Riemann mapping theorem and the Jordan curve theorem that arise naturally from the earlier development. Extensive exercises are included ineach of the chapters, detailed solutions of the majority of which are given at the end. From Re al to Complex Analysis is aimed at senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics. It offers a sound grounding inanalysis in particular, it gives a solid base in complex analysis from which progress to more advanced topics may be mad e |

Title: | Probing Correlated Quantum Many-Body Systems at the Single-Particle Level [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Manuel Endres |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | How much knowledge can we gain about a physical system and to what degree can we control it? In quantum optical systems, such as ion traps or neutral atoms in cavities, single particles and their correlations can now be probed ina way that is fundame ntally limited only by the laws of quantum mechanics. In contrast, quantum many-body systems pose entirely new challenges due to the enormous number of microscopic parameters and their small length- and shorttime-scales. This thesis describes a new approa ch to probing quantum many-body systems at the level of individual particles: Using high-resolution, single-particle-resolved imaging and manipulation of strongly correlated atoms, singleatoms can be detected and manipulated due to the large length and ti me-scales and the precise control of internal degrees of freedom. Such techniques lay stepping stones for the experimental exploration of new quantum many-bodyphenomena and applications thereof, such as quantum simulation and quantum information, through the design of systems at the microscopic scale and the measurement of previously inaccessible observables |

Title: | Invariant Probabilities of Transition Functions [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Radu Zaharopol |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The structure of the set of all the invariant probabilities and the structure of various types of individual invariant probabilities of a transition function are two topics of significant interest in the theory of transitionfunctions, and are studied in this book. The results obtained are useful in ergodic theory and the theory of dynamical systems, which, in turn, can be applied in various other areas (like number theory). They are illustrated usingtransition functions defined by flows, semiflows, a nd one-parameter convolution semigroups of probability measures. In this book, all results on transition probabilities that have been published by the author between 2004 and 2008 areextended to transition functions. The proofs of the results obtained are new. For transition functions that satisfy very general conditions the book describes an ergodic decomposition that provides relevant information on the structureof the corresponding set of invariant probabilities. Ergodic decomposition means a splitting of the state space, where the invariant ergodic probability measures play a significant role. Other topics covered include: characterizationsof the supports of various types of invariant probability measures and the use of these to obtain criteria for un ique ergodicity, and the proofs of two mean ergodic theorems for a certain type of transition functions. The book will beof interest to mathematicians working in ergodic theory, dynamical systems, or the theory of Markov processes. Biologists, physicists and economists interested in interacting particle systems and rigorous mathematics will also findthis book a valuable resource. Parts of it are suitable for advanced graduate courses. Prerequisites are basic notions and results on functional analysis, gen eral topology, measure theory, the Bochner integral and some of itsapplications |

Title: | Finite Volumes for Complex Applications VII-Elliptic, Parabolic and Hyperbolic Problems [electronic resource] : FVCA 7, Berlin, June 2014 |
Author(s): |
Jrgen Fuhrmann Mario Ohlberger Christian Rohde |

Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The methods considered in the 7th conference on Finite Volumes for Complex Applications (Berlin, June 2014) have properties which offer distinct advantages for a number of applications. The second volume of the proceedingscovers reviewed contribution s reporting successful applications in the fields of fluid dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, structural analysis, nuclear physics, semiconductor theory and other topics. The finite volume method in its variousforms is a space discretization technique for pa rtial differential equations based on the fundamental physical principle of conservation. Recent decades have brought significant success in the theoretical understanding of the method.Many finite volume methods preserve further qualitative or asymptotic properties, including maximum principles, dissipativity, monotone decay of free energy, and asymptotic stability. Due to these properties, finite volume methodsbelong to the wider class of compatible discretization methods, which preserve qualitative prop erties of continuous problems at the discrete level. This structural approach to the discretization of partial differential equationsbecomes particularly important for multiphysics and multiscale applications. Researchers, PhD and masters level students i n numerical analysis, scientific computing and related fields such as partial differential equations will findthis volume useful, as will engineers working in numerical modeling and simulations |
