Title:Functional Approach to Nonlinear Models of Water Flow in Soils [electronic resource]
Author(s): Gabriela Marinoschi
Date:2006
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a work of applied mathematics focusing on the functional study of the nonlinear boundary value problems relating to water flow in porous media. As far as revealed by the literature, a systematic study of these modelswithin the above ment ioned framework has not been done and the book has been written with the belief that the abstract theory may be sometimes easier and richer in consequences for applications than standard classical approaches are.The volume deals with diffusion type models and emphasizes the mathematical treatment of their nonlinear aspects. A unifying functional approach to different boundary value problems modelling the water movement in porous media ispresented, and the high degree of generality and abstraction, kept ho wever within reasonable limits, is rewarded by the richness of the results obtained in this way. From the mathematical point of view the results obtained can beconsidered as general results in the theory of nonlinear parabolic equations. Although water fl ow in soils was the principal exemplification for the functional treatment, the techniques used within the book and the results obtainedhere turn out useful for studying other appropriate problems arising in general in the movement of fluids in porous med ia, in the heat theory, phase transitions, biology, chemistry or engineering
