Title:Unsteady Computational Fluid Dynamics in Aeronautics [electronic resource]
Author(s): P.G Tucker
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The field of Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and hybrids is a vibrant research area. This book runs through all the potential unsteady modelling fidelity ranges, from low-order to LES. The latter is probably the highest fidelity forpractical aerospace sy stems modelling. Cutting edge new frontiers are defined. One example of a pressing environmental concern is noise. For the accurate prediction of this, unsteady modelling is needed. Hence computationalaeroacoustics is explored. It is also emerging that th ere is a critical need for coupled simulations. Hence, this area is also considered and the tensions of utilizing such simulations with the already expensive LES. This work hasrelevance to the general field of CFD and LES and to a wide variety of non-aero space aerodynamic systems (e.g. cars, submarines, ships, electronics, buildings). Topics treated include unsteady flow techniques LES and hybrids generalnumerical methods computational aeroacoustics computational aeroelasticity coupled simulations and tur bulence and its modelling (LES, RANS, transition, VLES, URANS). The volume concludes by pointing forward to future horizons and inparticular the industrial use of LES. The writing style is accessible and useful to both academics and industrial practitione rs. From the reviews: Tucker's volume provides a very welcome, concise discussion of current capabilitiesfor simulating and modellng unsteady aerodynamic flows. It covers the various possible numerical techniques in good, clear detail and presents a very wide range of practical applications beautifully illustrated in many cases. Thisbook thus provides a valuable text for practicing engineers, a rich source of background information for students and those new to this area of Research & Development, and an excellent state-of-the-art review for others.

Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Testbeds are gaining increasing relevance in research domains and also in industrial applications. However, very few books devoted to testbeds have been published. To the best of my knowledge no book on this topic has beenpublished. This book is part icularly interesting for the growing community of testbed developers. I believe the book is also very interesting for researchers in robot-WSN cooperation. This book provides detailed description of a systemthat can be considered the first testbed that al lows full peer-to-peer interoperability between heterogeneous robots and ubiquitous systems such as Wireless Sensor Networks, camera networks and pervasive computing systems. The systemarchitecture includes modules that allows full bidirectional communica tion between robots and WSN.

Itdescribes in detail the testbed specification and design using requirements extracted from surveys among experts in robotics and ubiquitous systems in academia and industry. The book also describes the testbed novel architecture andits hardware and software components. Moreover, it includes details on user support tools to facilitate its use s uch as remote use using a virtual private network and sets of functionalities of interest for members from the robotics,WSN and robot-WSN communities. Finally, the book illustrates its capabilities and potentialities describing the implementation of some of the experiments that have been performed.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book deals with basic aspects of polymer electronics and optoelectronics. There is an enormous world-wide effort both in basic scientific research as well as in industrial development in the area of organic electronics. It isbecoming increasingl y clear that, if devices based on organic materials are ever going to have a significant relevance beyond being a cheap replacement for inorganic semiconductors, there will be a need to understand interfaceformation, film growth and functionality. A contr ol of these aspects will allow the realisation of totally new device concepts exploiting the enormous flexibility inherent in organic chemistry. In this book we focus onoligomeric/molecular films as we believe that the control of molecular structures and interfaces provides highly defined systems which allow, on the one hand the study of the basic physics and on the other hand to find the importantparameters necessary to improve organic devices

Title:Understanding Viscoelasticity [electronic resource] : An Introduction to Rheology
Author(s): Nhan Phan-Thien
Date:2013
Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents an introduction to viscoelasticity in particular, to the theories of dilute polymer solutions and dilute suspensions of rigid particles in viscous and incompressible fluids. These theories are important, notjust because they apply to practical problems of industrial interest, but because they form a solid theoretical base upon which mathematical techniques can be built, from which more complex theories can be constructed, to better mimicmaterial behaviour. The emphasis is not on th e voluminous current topical research, but on the necessary tools to understand viscoelasticity at a first year graduate level. The main aim is to provide a still compact book, sufficient atthe level of first year graduate course for those who wish to und erstand viscoelasticity and to embark in modeling of viscoelastic multiphase fluids. To this end, a new chapter on Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) was introducedwhich is relevant to model complex-structured fluids. All the basic ideas in DPD are revie wed, with some sample problems to illustrate the methodology

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Note:Introduction to Global Optimization Exploiting Space-Filling Curves provides an overview of classical and new results pertaining to the usage of space-filling curves in global optimization. The authors look at a family ofderivative-free numerical alg orithms applying space-filling curves to reduce the dimensionality of the global optimization problem along with a number of unconventional ideas, such as adaptive strategies for estimating Lipschitzconstant, balancing global and local information to acce lerate the search. Convergence conditions of the described algorithms are studied in depth and theoretical considerations are illustrated through numerical examples. This workalso contains a code for implementing space-filling curves that can be used for constructing new global optimization algorithms. Basic ideas from this text can be applied to a number of problems including problems with multiextremaland partially defined constraints and non-redundant parallel computations can be organized. Professors, students, researchers, engineers, and other professionals in the fields of pure mathematics, nonlinear sciences studying fractals,operations research, management science, industrial and applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, economics, and t he environmental sciences will find this title useful .

Note:Despite significant achievements, the discipline of supply chain management is still unable to satisfactorily handle many practical real-world challenges. The authors of Networks Against Time claim that a unified supply chainnetwork analytics framewo rk is needed which should be able to handle optimization and competitive behavior while also maintain relevance to many industrial sectors in which perishable products are prominent, from healthcare to food andfrom fashion apparel to technology. This Brie f provides a wide range of critical supply chain problems which are modeled as generalized networks. Guidelines are provided to determine the arc multipliers that capture perish ability ofthe product whether food, radioisotopes, or even highly perishable blood in healthcare over space and time. Through case studies the authors portray the application of the models and algorithms to real-world sectors which illustratethe power of the framework in practice. The models and algorithms are fully described alon g with the input and output data in the case studies. This level of transparency is useful pedagogically as well as for future research and forapplications in practice. Researchers and practitioners in mathematics, in operations research and management sc ience, operations management, as well as in economics and computer science will find this book useful to gain a broaderappreciation of the richness of network supply chain structures, processes, and applications. This book can also be used by advanced und ergraduate students and graduate students in the disciplines noted above to familiarize themselveswith methodologies and supply chain network models and applications

Note:The connected dominating set (CDS)has been a classic subject studied in graph theory since 1975. It has been discovered inrecent years thatCDS has important applications in communication networks especially in wirelessnetworks as a virtual backbone. Motivated from those applications, many papers have been published in the literature during last 15 years. Now, the connected dominating set has become a hot research topic in computer science. Thiswork isa valuable reference for researchers in computer s cience and operations research, especially in areas of theoretical computer science, computer communication networks, combinatorial optimization, industrial engineering, anddiscrete mathematics. The book may also be used as a text in a graduate seminar fo r PhD students. Readers should have a basic knowledge of computational complexity and combinatorial optimization. In this book, the authors present thestate-of-the-art in the study of connected dominating sets. Each chapter is devoted to one problem, and consists of three parts: motivation and overview, problem complexity analysis, and approximation algorithm designs. The text isdesigned togive the reader a clear understanding of thebackground, formulation, existing important research results, and open pr oblems. Topics include minimum CDS, routing-cost constrained CDS, weighted CDS, directed CDS, SCDS(strongly connected dominating set), WCDS (weakly connected dominating set), CDS-partition, virtual backbone in wireless networks, convertor placement in opt ical networks, coverage in wireless sensor networks, and more

Note:Conflicts in the form of wars, or competition among countries and industrial institutions are plenty in human history. The introduction of game theory in the middle of the twentieth century shed insights and enabled researchers toanalyze this subject with mathematical rigor. From the ground-breaking work of VonNeumann and Morgenston, modern game theory evolved enormously. In the last few decades, Dynamic game theory framework has been deepened and generalizedfrom the pioneering work on differential g ames by R. Isaacs, L.S. Pontryagin and his school, and on stochastic games by Shapley. This book will expose the reader to some of the fundamental methodology in non-cooperative game theory,and highlight some numerical methods, along with some relevant ap plications. Since the early development days, differential game theory has had a significant impact in such diverse disciplines as applied mathematics, economics, systemstheory, engineering, operations, research, biology, ecology, environmental sciences, among others. Modern game theory now relies on wide ranging mathematical and computational methods, and relevant applications that are rich andchallenging. Game theory has been widely recognized as an important tool in many fields. Importance of game theo ry to economics is illustrated by the fact that numerous game theorists, such as John Forbes Nash, Jr., Robert J. Aumannand Thomas C. Schelling, have won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences. Simply put, game-theory has the potential to reshape the analysis of human interaction

Title:Physics of Collisional Plasmas [electronic resource] : Introduction to High-Frequency Discharges

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Physics of Collisional Plasmas deals with the plasma physics of interest to laboratory research and industrial applications, such as lighting, fabrication of microelectronics, destruction of greenhouse gases. Its emphasis ison explaining the phys ical mechanisms, rather than the detailed mathematical description and theoretical analysis. At the introductory level, it is important to convey the characteristic physical phenomena of plasmas, before addressingthe ultimate formalism of kinetic theory, with its microscopic, statistical mechanics approach. To this aim, this text translates the physical phenomena into more tractable equations, using the hydrodynamic model this considers theplasma as a fluid, in which the macroscopic physical parameters ar e the statistical averages of the microscopic (individual) parameters. Thisbook is an introduction to the physics of collisional plasmas, as opposed to plasmas inspace. It is intended for graduate students in physics and engineering . The first chapter in troduces with progressively increasing detail, the fundamental concepts of plasma physic. The motion of individual charged particles invarious configurations of electric and magnetic fields is detailed in the second chapter while the third chapter conside rs the collective motion of the plasma particles described according to a hydrodynamic model. The fourth chapter ismost original in that it introduces a general approach to energy balance, valid for all types of discharges comprising direct current(DC) an d high frequency (HF) discharges, including an applied static magnetic field. The basicconcepts required in this fourth chapter have been progressively introduced in the previous chapters. The text is enriched with approx. 100 figures, and alphabetical in dex and 45 fully resolved problems. Mathematical and physicalappendices provide complementary information or allow to go deeper in a given subject

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book concerns the origins of mathematical problem solving at the internationally active Osram and Telefunken Corporations during the golden years of broadcasting and electron tube research. The woman scientist Iris Runge,who received an interdis ciplinary education at the University of Gttingen, was long employed as the sole mathematical authority at these companies in Berlin. It will be shown how mathematical connections were made between statisticsand quality control, and between physical-chemi cal models and the actual problems of mass production. The organization of industrial laboratories, the relationship between theoretical and experimental work, and the role ofmathematicians in these settings will also be explained. By investigating the so cial, economic, and political conditions that unfolded from the time of the German Empire until the end of the Second World War, the book hopes to build abridge between specialized fields mathematics and engineering and the general culture of a particul ar era. It hopes, furthermore, to build a bridge between the history of science and industry, on the one hand, and the fields ofGender and Womens Studies on the other. Finally, by examining the life and work of numerous industrial researchers, insight wil l be offered into the conditions that enabled a woman to achieve a prominent professional position duringa time when women were typically excluded from the scientific workforce

Note:Metal-dielectric interfaces are ubiquitous in modern electronics. As advanced gigascale electronic devices continue to shrink, the stability of these interfaces is becoming an increasingly important issue that has a profoundimpact on the operational reliability of these devices. In this book, the authors present the basic science underlying the thermal and electrical stability of metal-dielectric interfaces and its relationship to the operation ofadvanced interconnect systems in gigascale electronics . Interface phenomena, including chemical reactions between metals and dielectrics, metallic-atom diffusion, and ion drift, are discussed based on fundamental physical and chemicalprinciples. Schematic diagrams are provided throughout the book to illustra te interface phenomena and the principles that govern them. Metal-Dielectric Interfaces in Gigascale Electronics provides a unifying approach to the diverseand sometimes contradictory test results that are reported in the literature on metal-dielectric in terfaces. The goal is to provide readers with a clear account of the relationship between interface science and its applications ininterconnect structures. The material presented here will also be of interest to those engaged in field-effect transistor an d memristor device research, as well as university researchers and industrial scientists working in the areasof electronic materials processing, semiconductor manufacturing, memory chips, and IC design.

Note:Construction of various models of objects under uncertainty is one of the most important problems in modern decision making theory. Regression models are some of the most prevalent tools for modeling under uncertainty and arewidely applied in differe nt branches of science such as in industrial research, agriculture, medicine, and business and economics. Regression Analysis Under A Priori Parameter Restrictions will be of interest to a broad spectrum ofreaders in applied mathematics, mathematical stat istics, identification theory, systems analysis, econometrics, finance, optimization, and other scientific disciplines. Requiring a background in algebra, probability theory,mathematical statistics, and mathematical programming, this work may also be a us eful supplement for advanced graduate courses in estimation theory, regression analysis, mathematical statistics, econometrics, mathematical programmingand optimal control, and stochastic optimization. The material contained in this monographsuccessfully combines interesting theoretical results with methods and algorithms for solving practical problems. It focuses on theconstruction of regression models with linear and non-linear constraint inequalities and is the first book in which the theoretical resul ts lying in the background of construction and studying regression models with inequalityconstraints on parameters are presented systematically and solidly. Problems are described and studied in a clear, precise, and rigorous method and include: calculati on of estimates for regression parameters, determination of theirasymptotic properties and accuracy of estimation, point and interval prediction by the regression, parameters of which are estimated under inequality constraints. The authors approach lends itself to numerous applications in variouspractical problems, several of which are discussed in detail

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Twenty five years have elapsed since the original publication of Helium Cryogenics. During this time, a considerable amount of research and development involving helium fluids has been carried out culminating in severallarge-scale projects. Furthermo re, the field has matured through these efforts so that there is now a broad engineering base to assist the development of future projects. Helium Cryogenics, 2nd edition brings these advances in heliumcryogenics together in an updated form. As in the ori ginal edition, the author's approach is to survey the field of cryogenics with emphasis on helium fluids. This approach is more specialized and fundamental than that contained inother cryogenics books, which treat the associated range of cryogenic fluids. As a result, the level of treatment is more advanced and assumes a certain knowledge of fundamental engineering and physics principles, including somequantum mechanics. The goal throughout the work is to bridge the gap between the physics and engineering aspects of helium fluids to provide a source for engineers and scientists to enhance their usefulness in low-temperature systems.Dr. Van Sciver is a Distinguished Research Professor and John H. Gorrie Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Florida State University. He is also a Program Director at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL). Dr. VanSciver joined the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and the NHMFL in 1991, initiating and teaching a graduate program in magnet and materials engineerin g and in cryogenic thermal sciences and heat transfer. He also led the NHMFLdevelopment efforts of the cryogenic systems for the NHMFL Hybrid and 900 MHz NMR superconducting magnets. Between 1997 and 2003, he served as Director of Magnet Science and Techn ology at the NHMFL. Dr. Van Sciver is a Fellow of theASME and the Cryogenic Society of America and American Editor for the journal Cryogenics. He is the 2010 recipient of the Kurt Mendelssohn Award. P

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complex optimization problems abound in the real world. In the face of these challenges, established methods often fall short of providing solutions. However, exact and heuristic techniques are dramatically enhancingour ability to solve significant p ractical problems in the world of optimization. They are changing the landscape in the field, broadening the frontiers of the possible, and allowing us to engage effectively with a whole new range ofchallenges. This monograph sets out state-of-the-art opt imization methods for tackling the linear ordering problem (LOP). Whereas important applications in business, engineering and economics lie beyond the reach of methodologiesthat have been the focus of academic research for three decades, the fresh approac hes set out in this volume provide practical solutions to the LOP. The focus on the LOP does not limit the monographs scope and applicability,however. The exact and heuristic techniques outlined in these pages can be put to use in any number of combinator ial optimization problems. While the authors employ the LOP to illustrate cutting-edge optimization technologies, the bookis also a tutorial on how to design effective and successful implementations of exact and heuristic procedures alike. The information in these pages provides readers with a toolkit that can be employed in a variety of settings. As aresult, the book will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners in a number of fields, including computer science, mathematics, operations resea rch, management science, industrial engineering, and economics. It is alsosuitable for use as a textbook on issues of practical optimization in a masters course, or as a reference book for engineering optimization algorithms. The authors have sought to ma ke the book accessible to as wide an audience aspossible by providing the reader with basic definitions and concepts in optimization. In addition, the numerous tutorials aid speedy

Note:The aim of stochastic programming is to find optimal decisions in problems which involve uncertain data. This field is currently developing rapidly with contributions from many disciplines including operations research,mathematics, and probability. A t the same time, it is now being applied in a wide variety of subjects ranging from agriculture to financial planning and from industrial engineering to computer networks. This textbook provides a firstcourse in stochastic programming suitable for student s with a basic knowledge of linear programming, elementary analysis, and probability. The authors aim to present a broad overview of the main themes and methods of the subject. Itsprime goal is to help students develop an intuition on how to model uncerta inty into mathematical problems, what uncertainty changes bring to the decision process, and what techniques help to manage uncertainty in solving the problems.In this extensively updated new edition there is more material on methods and examples includin g several new approaches for discrete variables, new results on risk measures in modeling and Monte Carlo sampling methods, a new chapter onrelationships to other methods including approximate dynamic programming, robust optimization and online methods.

Note:The recent emergence of Local Binary Patterns (LBP) has led to significant progress in applying texture methods to various computer vision problems and applications. The focus of this research has broadened from 2D textures to 3Dtextures and spatiote mporal (dynamic) textures. Also, where texture was once utilized for applications such as remote sensing, industrial inspection and biomedical image analysis, the introduction of LBP-based approaches have providedoutstanding results in problems relating t o face and activity analysis, with future scope for face and facial expression recognition, biometrics, visual surveillance and video analysis. Computer Vision Using Local Binary Patternsprovides a detailed description of the LBP methods and their varian ts both in spatial and spatiotemporal domains. This comprehensive reference also provides an excellent overview as to how texture methods can be utilized for solvingdifferent kinds of computer vision and image analysis problems. Source codes of the basic LBP algorithms, demonstrations, some databases and a comprehensive LBP bibliography can be found from an accompanying web site.

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 the theory of subdivision curves in detail, which is a prerequisite for that of subdivision surfaces. The book reports on the currently known ways of analysing a subdivision scheme (i.e. measuring criteria whichmight be important for the application of a scheme to a given context). It then goes on to consider how those analyses can be used in reverse to design a scheme best matching the particular criteria for a given application. The book ispresented in an accessible fashion, even f or those whose mathematics is a tool to be used, not a way of life. It should provide the reader with a full and deep understanding of the state-of-the-art in subdivision analysis, and separatesections on mathematical techniques provide revision for those needing it. The book will be of great interest to those starting to do research in CAD/CAE. It will also appeal to those lecturing in this subject and industrial workersimplementing these methods. The author has spent his professional life on the numeric al representation of shape and his book fills a need for a book covering the fundamental ideas in the simplest possible context, that of curves

Note:This is the biography of Ruby Payne-Scott (1912 to 1981). As the first female radio astronomer (and one of the first people in the world to consider radio astronomy), she made classic contributions to solar radio physics. She alsoplayed a major role in the design of the Australian government's Council for Scientific and Industrial Research radars, which were in turn of vital importance in the Southwest Pacific Theatre in World War II and were used byAustralian, US and New Zealand personnel. From a so ciological perspective, her career also offers many examples of the perils of being a female academic in the first half of the 20th century. Written in an engaging style andcomplemented by many historical photographs this book gives a fascinating insight into the beginning of radio astronomy and the role of a pioneering woman in astronomy

Note:Over the years, many successful attempts have been made to describe the art and science of crystal growth. Most modern advances in semiconductor and optical devices would not have been possible without the development of manyelemental, binary, ternar y, and other compound crystals of varying properties and large sizes. The objective of the Springer Handbook of Crystal Growth is to present state-of-the-art knowledge of both bulk and thin-film crystal growth.The goal is to make readers understand the ba sics of the commonly employed growth processes, materials produced, and defects generated. Almost 100 leading scientists, researchers, and engineers from 22 different countries from academiaand industry have been selected to write chapters on the topics o f their expertise. They have written 52 chapters on the fundamentals of bulk crystal growth from the melt, solution, and vapor, epitaxial growth, modeling of growthprocesses and defects, techniques of defect characterization as well as some contemporary s pecial topics. This unique effort will provide readers with a fundamental understanding of crystal growth with the latest instrumentation andtechniques available for crystal and thin-film fabrication.

Note:Inventories are prevalent everywhere in the commercial world, whether it be in retail stores, manufacturing facilities, government stockpile material, Federal Reserve banks, or even your own household. This textbook examines basicmathematical techniq ues used to sufficiently manage inventories by using various computational methods and mathematical models. Such models discussed include: EOQ model and extensions, power-of-two models, single and multi-periodmodels, probabilistic lot sizing models, multi -echelon stochastic models, Laplace and Normal demand models, exact Poisson model, and many more. Principles of Inventory Management begins with an introductory chapter in which the basicsof inventory systems and mathematical assumptions for all models ar e grouped together. The text is presented in a way such that each section can be read independently, and so the order in which the reader approaches the book can beinconsequential. It contains both deterministic and stochastic models along with algorithms that can be employed to find solutions to a variety of inventory control problems. Key topics include: * Economic order quantity (EOQ) model *Power-of-two policies * Dynamic lot sizing * Single and multi-period stochastic models * Echelon-based approache s * Multi-echelon systems * Single and multi-item models With exercises at the end of each chapter and a clear, systematicexposition, this textbook will appeal to advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students in operations research, industrial e ngineering, and quantitative MBA programs. It also serves as a reference for professionals in bothindustry and government worlds. The prerequisite courses include introductory optimization methods, probability theory (non-measure theoretic), and stochasti c processes

Title:Large Eddy Simulation for Compressible Flows [electronic resource]

Note:Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of compressible flows is still a widely unexplored area of research. The authors, whose books are considered the most relevant monographs in this field, provide the reader with a comprehensivestate-of-the-art presentation of the available LES theory and application. This book is a sequel to Large Eddy Simulation for Incompressible Flows, as most of the research on LES for compressible flows is based on variable densityextensions of models, methods and paradigms that were d eveloped within the incompressible flow framework. The book addresses both the fundamentals and the practical industrial applications of LES in order to point out gaps in thetheoretical framework as well as to bridge the gap between LES research and the g rowing need to use it in engineering modeling. After introducing the fundamentals on compressible turbulence and the LES governing equations, themathematical framework for the filtering paradigm of LES for compressible flow equations is established. Inste ad of providing the reader with a general discussion about compressibility effects on turbulence, the emphasis is put ondifferences in scale interactions compared to the incompressible case. Functional modeling is discussed, including a brief introduction into implicit modeling from the functional perspective. The description of explicit structuralmodeling contains different models based on the scale-similarity hypothesis, on approximate deconvolution, and on multi-resolution concepts to reconstruct the s ubgrid-scale field. A central part of the monograph is the discussion ofnumerical methods in relation to LES. After evaluating boundary conditions for LES of compressible flows, which are much more complex than its counterpart for incompressible flows, th e last chapters are dedicated to specificapplications to sub- and supersonic flows, including a discussion of shock-related problems
