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 |

Title: | Soft Solids [electronic resource] : A Primer to the Theoretical Mechanics of Materials |
Author(s): |
Alan D Freed |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Birkhuser |
Size: | 1 online resource |
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 |

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. Itis accessible to anyonewith a working knowl |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
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) |

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

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 |

Title: | From Special Relativity to Feynman Diagrams [electronic resource] : A Course of Theoretical Particle Physics for Beginners |

Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This books aims at filling a gap between the basics courses of classical and quantum mechanics and advanced courses of (relativistic) quantum mechanics and field theory. Particular emphasis is given to the role of symmetry inmodern theoretical physic s. For this reason this book is particularly suited to those students who are interested in a deeper knowledge of modern developments in elementary particle physics and relativity, even if they choose not tospecialize in this branch of research. This targ et of readers includes, besides experimental and applied physicists, also those engineers who need advanced notions of theoretical high energy physics, in view of future research activityin the field theory approach to condensed matter, in accelerator phy sics and in all those modern technology sectors which require a more advanced and sophisticated theoretical physics background. Courses motivated by these objectivesare present in several polytechnic institutes around the world. The last chapters of this book, in particular, are of particular importance to those engineers who plan to work in high energy physics research centres, like LHC at CERN,or to collaborate to experiments on the revelation of gravitational waves. As far as engineering is concerned, it is important to stress that elementary Special and General Relativity courses are often absent in their curricula |

Note: | Since most of the problems arising in science and engineering are nonlinear, they are inherently difficult to solve. Traditional analytical approximations are valid only for weakly nonlinear problems, and often fail when used forproblems with strong nonlinearity. Nonlinear Flow Phenomena and Homotopy Analysis: Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer presents the current theoretical developments of the analytical method of homotopy analysis. This book not onlyaddresses the theoretical framework for the method, b ut also gives a number of examples of nonlinear problems that have been solved by means of the homotopy analysis method. The particular focus lies on fluid flow problems governed bynonlinear differential equations. This book is intended for researchers in applied mathematics, physics, mechanics and engineering. Both Kuppalapalle Vajravelu and Robert A. Van Gorder work at the University of Central Florida, USA |

Note: | This book introduces and explores modern developments in the well established field of Hamiltonian dynamical systems. It focuses on high degree-of-freedom systems and the transitional regimes between regular and chaotic motion.The role of nonlinear n ormal modes is highlighted and the importance of low-dimensional tori in the resolution of the famous FPU paradox is emphasized. Novel powerful numerical methods are used to study localization phenomena anddistinguish order from strongly and weakly chaoti c regimes. The emerging hierarchy of complex structures in such regimes gives rise to particularly long-lived patterns and phenomena called quasi-stationary states, which are explored inparticular in the concrete setting of one-dimensional Hamiltonian lat tices and physical applications in condensed matter systems. The self-contained and pedagogical approach is blended with a unique balance between mathematicalrigor, physics insights and concrete applications. End of chapter exercises and (more demanding) research oriented problems provide many opportunities to deepen the readers insights into specific aspects of the subject matter. Addressing a broad audience of graduate students, theoretical physicists and applied mathematicians, this text combines the b enefits of a reference work with those of a self-study guide for newcomers to the field |

Note: | Homotopy Analysis Method in Nonlinear Differential Equations presents the latest developments and applications of the analytic approximation method for highly nonlinear problems, namely the homotopy analysis method (HAM).Unlike perturbation methods, the HAM has nothing to do with small/large physical parameters. In addition, it provides great freedom to choose the equation-type of linear sub-problems and the base functions of a solution. Above all,it provides a convenient way to guarantee the converg ence of a solution. This book consists of three parts. Part I provides its basic ideas and theoretical development. Part II presents the HAM-based Mathematica package BVPh 1.0for nonlinear boundary-value problems and its applications. Part III shows the v alidity of the HAM for nonlinear PDEs, such as the American put option and resonance criterion of nonlinear travelling waves. New solutions to a numberof nonlinear problems are presented, illustrating the originality of the HAM. Mathematica codes are free ly available online to make it easy for readers to understand and use the HAM. This book is suitable for researchers andpostgraduates in applied mathematics, physics, nonlinear mechanics, finance and engineering. Dr. Shijun Liao, a distinguished professo r of Shanghai Jiaotong University, is a pioneer of the HAM. |

Note: | Falling Liquid Films gives a detailed review of state-of-the-art theoretical, analytical and numerical methodologies, for the analysis of dissipative wave dynamics and pattern formation on the surface of a film falling down aplanar inclined substrate . This prototype is an open-flow hydrodynamic instability, that represents an excellent paradigm for the study of complexity in active nonlinear media with energy supply, dissipation and dispersion. It willalso be of use for a more general understanding o f specific events characterizing the transition to spatio-temporal chaos and weak/dissipative turbulence. Particular emphasis is given to low-dimensional approximations for such flowsthrough a hierarchy of modeling approaches, including equations of the b oundary-layer type, averaged formulations based on weighted residuals approaches and long-wave expansions. Whenever possible the link between theory and experimentis illustrated, and, as a further bridge between the two, the development of order-of-magnit ude estimates and scaling arguments is used to facilitate the understanding of basic, underlying physics. This monograph will appeal toadvanced graduate students in applied mathematics, science or engineering undertaking research on interfacial fluid mec hanics or studying fluid mechanics as part of their program. It will also be of use to researchers working on bothapplied, fundamental theoretical and experimental aspects of thin film flows, as well as engineers and technologists dealing with processes i nvolving isothermal or heated films. This monograph is largely self-contained and nobackground on interfacial fluid mechanics is assumed |

Title: | Dissipative Ordered Fluids [electronic resource] : Theories for Liquid Crystals |

Publisher: | Boston, MA : Springer US |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This is a book on the dissipative dynamics of ordered fluids, with a particular focus on liquid crystals. It covers a whole range of different theories, mainly concerned with nematic liquid crystals in both their chiral andnonchiral variants. The aut hors begin by giving a detailed account of the molecular origins of orientational order in fluids. They then go on to develop a general framework in which continuum theories for ordered fluids can be phrased.Within this unified setting, they cover both we ll-established classical theories and new ones with aspects that are not yet completely settled. The book treats a wide range of hydrodynamic theories for liquid crystals, from theoriginal 1960s works by Ericksen and Leslie to new, fast-developing ideas o f liquid crystal science. The final chapter is devoted to nematoacoustics and its applications. Old experiments on the propagation of ultrasound waves innematic liquid crystals are interpreted and explained in the light of a new theory developed within th e general theoretical infrastructure proposed in the body of the book. This book is intended both for graduate students andprofessional scholars in mathematics, physics, and engineering of advanced materials. It delivers a solid framework for liquid cryst al hydrodynamics and shows the unifying concepts at the basis of the classical theories. It illustrateshow these concepts can also be applied to a wide variety of modern topics. Andre M. Sonnet is in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the Uni versity of Strathclyde, Glasgow (Scotland) and Epifanio G. Virga is in theDepartment of Mathematics at the University of Pavia (Italy). They have a long history of working together in liquid crystal science and have contributed, in particular, to the theo ries of defects and biaxial nematics |

Note: | This volume introduces a systematic approach to the solution of some mathematical problems that arise in the study of the hyperbolic-parabolic systems of equations that govern the motions of thermodynamic fluids. It is intendedfor a wide audience of theoretical and applied mathematicians with an interest in compressible flow, capillarity theory, and control theory. The focus is particularly on recent results concerning nonlinear asymptotic stability, whichare independent of assumptions about the smal lness of the initial data. Of particular interest is the loss of control that sometimes results when steady flows of compressible fluids are upset by large disturbances. The main ideas areillustrated in the context of three different physical problems: (i ) A barotropic viscous gas in a fixed domain with compact boundary. The domain may be either an exterior domain or a bounded domain, and the boundary may be eitherimpermeable or porous. (ii) An isothermal viscous gas in a domain with free boundaries. (iii ) A heat-conducting, viscous polytropic gas |

Note: | The domain of non-extensive thermostatistics has been subject to intensive research over the past twenty years and has matured significantly. Generalised Thermostatistics cuts through the traditionalism of many statistical physicstexts by offering a fresh perspective and seeking to remove elements of doubt and confusion surrounding the area. The book is divided into two parts - the first covering topics from conventional statistical physics, whilst adopting theperspective that statistical physics is statistics applied to physics. The second developing the formalism of non-extensive thermostatistics, of which the central role is played by the notion of a deformed exponential family ofprobability distributions. Presented in a clear, consistent, and ded uctive manner, the book focuses on theory, part of which is developed by the author himself, but also provides a number of references towards application-based texts.Written by a leading contributor in the field, this book will provide a useful tool for l earning about recent developments in generalized versions of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, especially with respect to self-study.Written for researchers in theoretical physics, mathematics and statistical mechanics, as well as graduates of phy sics, mathematics or engineering. A prerequisite knowledge of elementary notions of statistical physics and a substantialmathematical background are required |

Note: | This book covers all topics in mechanics from elementary Newtonian mechanics, the principles of canonical mechanics and rigid body mechanics to relativistic mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. It was among the first textbooks toinclude dynamical system s and deterministic chaos in due detail. As compared to the previous editions the present fifth edition is updated and revised with more explanations, additional examples and sections on Noether's theorem.Symmetries and invariance principles, the basic ge ometric aspects of mechanics as well as elements of continuum mechanics also play an important role. The book will enable the reader to develop general principles from which equationsof motion follow, to understand the importance of canonical mechanics an d of symmetries as a basis for quantum mechanics, and to get practice in using general theoretical concepts and tools that are essential for all branches ofphysics. The book contains more than 120 problems with complete solutions, as well as some practica l examples which make moderate use of personal computers. This will be appreciated in particular by students using this textbook toaccompany lectures on mechanics. The book ends with some historical notes on scientists who made important contributions to the development of mechanics |

Note: | This book provides a modern investigation into the bifurcation phenomena of physical and engineering problems. Systematic methods - based on asymptotic, probabilistic, and group-theoretic standpoints - are used to examineexperimental and computationa l data from numerous examples (soil, sand, kaolin, concrete, domes). For mathematicians, static bifurcation theory for finite-dimensional systems, as well as its implications for practical problems, isilluminated by the numerous examples. Engineers may fi nd this book, with its minimized mathematical formalism, to be a useful introduction to modern bifurcation theory. This second edition strengthens the theoretical backgrounds ofgroup representation theory and its application, uses of block-diagonalization in bifurcation analysis, and includes up-to-date topics of the bifurcation analysis of diverse materials from rectangular parallelepiped sand specimens tohoneycomb cellular solids. Reviews of first edition: The present book gives a wide and deep descript ion of imperfect bifurcation behaviour in engineering problems. the book offers a number of systematic methods based oncontemporary mathematics. On balance, the reviewed book is very useful as it develops a modern static imperfect bifurcation theory and fills the gap between mathematical theory and engineering practice. (Zentralblatt MATH, 2003)The current book is a graduate-level text that presents an overview of imperfections and the prediction of the initial post-buckling response of a system. ... Im perfect Bifurcation in Structures and Materials provides an extensiverange of material on the role of imperfections in stability theory. It would be suitable for a graduate-level course on the subject or as a reference to research workers in the field. ( Applied Mechanics Reviews, 2003) This book isa comprehensive treatment of the static bifurcation problems found in (mainly civil/structural) engineering applications.... The text is well writ |

Note: | This textbook is an application-oriented introduction to the theory of distributions, a powerful tool used in mathematical analysis. The treatment emphasizes applications that relate distributions to linear partial differentialequations and Fourier a nalysis problems found in mechanics, optics, quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, and signal analysis. Throughout the book, methods are developed to deal with formal calculations involving functions, series,and integrals that cannot be mathematically justified within the classical framework. Key features: Many examples, exercises, hints, and solutions guide the reader throughout the text. Includes an introduction to distributions,differentiation, convergence, convolution, the Fourier transform, and spaces of distributions having special properties. Original proofs, which may be difficult to locate elsewhere, are given for many well-known results. TheFourier transform is transparently treated and applied to provide a new proof of the Kernel Theorem , which in turn is used to efficiently derive numerous important results. The systematic use of pullback and pushforward introducesconcise notation. Emphasizes the role of symmetry in obtaining short arguments and investigates distributions that are inv ariant under the actions of various groups of transformations. Distributions: Theory and Applications isaimed at advanced undergraduates and graduate students in mathematics, theoretical physics, and engineering, who will find this textbook a welcome intr oduction to the subject, requiring only a minimal mathematical background. The workmay also serve as an excellent self-study guide for researchers who use distributions in various fields |

Note: | This concise text introduces techniques from quantum mechanics, especially scattering theory, to compute the effects of an external background on a quantum field in general, and on the properties of the quantum vacuum inparticular. This approach can be succesfully used in an increasingly large number of situations, ranging from the study of solitons in field theory and cosmology to the determination of Casimir forces in nano-technology. The methodintroduced and applied in this book is shown to give a n unambiguous connection to perturbation theory, implementing standard renormalization conditions even for non-perturbative backgrounds. It both gives new theoretical insights, forexample illuminating longstanding questions regarding Casimir stresses, and also provides an efficient analytic and numerical tool well suited to practical calculations. Last but not least, it elucidates in a concrete context many ofthe subtleties of quantum field theory, such as divergences, regularization and renormalization, by connecting them to more familiar results in quantum mechanics. While addressed primarily at young researchers entering the field andnonspecialist researchers with backgrounds in theoretical and mathematical physics, introductory chapters on the theoret ical aspects of the method make the book self-contained and thus suitable for advanced graduate students |

Note: | Analytical dynamics forms an important part of any undergraduate programme in applied mathematics and physics: it develops intuition about three-dimensional space and provides invaluable practice in problem solving. Firstpublished in 1987, this text is an introduction to the core ideas. It offers concise but clear explanations and derivations to give readers a confident grasp of the chain of argument that leads from Newtons laws through Lagrangesequations and Hamiltons principle, to Hamiltons equatio ns and canonical transformations. This new edition has been extensively revised and updated to include: A chapter on symplectic geometry and the geometric interpretation ofsome of the coordinate calculations. A more systematic treatment of the conections with the phase-plane analysis of ODEs and an improved treatment of Euler angles. A greater emphasis on the links to special relativity and quantumtheory, e.g., linking Schrdingers equation to Hamilton-Jacobi theory, showing how ideas from this classical s ubject link into contemporary areas of mathematics and theoretical physics. Aimed at second- and third-yearundergraduates, the book assumes some familiarity with elementary linear algebra, the chain rule for partial derivatives, and vector mechanics in th ree dimensions, although the latter is not essential. A wealth of examples show thesubject in action and a range of exercises with solutions are provided to help test understanding |

Note: | This work is devoted to an intensive study in contact mechanics, treating the nonsmooth dynamics of contacting bodies. Mathematical modeling is illustrated and discussed in numerous examples of engineering objects working indifferent kinematic and dy namic environments. Topics covered in five self-contained chapters examine non-steady dynamic phenomena which are determined by key factors: i.e., heat conduction, thermal stresses, and the amount of wearing.New to this monograph is the importance of the inertia factor, which is considered on par with thermal stresses. Principal features: * Unique monograph to address the topic of dynamic contact problems in thermoelasticity, which takeinto account inertial effects and influence of thermoelastic coupling for models of solids in contact * Mathematical modeling methods are illustrated and applied to practical engineering problems: e.g., for improving the reliabilityand durability of machines and mechanisms under friction, heat, and amount of wear in contact * Presents solutions that describe many interesting nonlinear effects Nonsmooth Dynamics of Contacting Thermoelastic Bodies is an engagingaccessible practical reference for engineers (civil, mechanical, industrial) and researchers in theoretical and appl ied mechanics, applied mathematics, physicists, and graduate students |

Note: | Traditional analysis of dynamical systems has restricted its attention to smooth problems, but it has become increasingly clear that there are distinctive phenomena unique to discontinuous systems that can be analyzedmathematically but which fall out side the usual methodology for smooth dynamical systems. The primary purpose of this book is to present a coherent framework for understanding the dynamics of piecewise-smooth and hybrid systems. Aninformal introduction asserts the ubiquity of such models with examples drawn from mechanics, electronics, control theory and physiology. The main thrust is to classify complex behavior via bifurcation theory in a systematic yetapplicable way. The key concept is that of a discontinuity-induced bifurcation, whic h generalizes diverse phenomena such as grazing, border-collision, sliding, chattering and the period-adding route to chaos. The results are presentedin an informal style and illustrated with copious examples, both theoretical and experimental. Aimed at a wide audience of applied mathematicians, engineers and scientists at the early postgraduate level, the book assumes only thestandard background of basic calculus and linear algebra for most of the presentation and will be an indispensable resource for st udents and researchers. The inclusion of a comprehensive bibliography and many open questions will alsoserve as a stimulus for future research |

Note: | This book introduces the basic theoretical concepts required for the analysis of the optical response of semiconductor systems in the coherent regime. The entire presentation is based on a one-dimensional tight-binding model.Starting with discrete-le vel systems, increasing complexity is added gradually to the model by including band-structure and many-particle interaction. Various linear and nonlinear optical spectra and temporal phenomena are studied. Theanalysis of many-body effects in nonlinear op tical phenomena covers a major part of the book. Only basic knowledge of quantum mechanics is required to benefit from the results presented in this book. Therefore, it is well suited as atextbook for advanced classes, for self-study, and for researchers interested in the field of semiconductor optics |

Note: | The present book has its source in the authors wish to create a bridge between the mathematical and the technical disciplines, which need a good knowledge of a strong mathematical tool. The necessity of such aninterdisciplinary work drove the authors to publish a first book to this aim with Editura Tehnica, Bucharest, Romania. The present book is a new, English edition of the volume published in 1999. It contains many improvements concerningthe theoretical (mathematical) information, as well as new t opics, using enlarged and updated references. Only ordinary differential equations and their solutions in an analytical frame were considered, leaving aside their numericalapproach. The problem is firstly stated in its mechanical frame. Then the mathemati cal model is set up, emphasizing on the one hand the physical magnitude playing the part of the unknown function and on the other hand the laws ofmechanics that lead to an ordinary differential equation or system. The solution is then obtained by specifyi ng the mathematical methods described in the corresponding theoretical presentation. Finally a mechanical interpretation ofthe solution is provided, this giving rise to a complete knowledge of the studied phenomenon. The number of applications was increas ed, and many of these problems appear currently in engineering. Audience Mechanical and civilengineers, physicists, applied mathematicians, astronomers and students. The prerequisites are courses of elementary analysis and algebra, as given at a technical university. On a larger scale, all those interested in usingmathematical models and methods in various fields, like mechanics, civil and mechanical engineering, and people involved in teaching or design will find this work indispensable |

Note: | This volume presents the Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Vibration Problems, held in Istanbul, Turkey, 05-09 September 2005. As with the earlier conferences in the ICOVP series, the purpose of ICOVP-2005 wasto bring together sc ientists with different backgrounds, actively working on vibration-related problems of engineering both in theoretical and applied fields. The main objective did not lie, however, in reporting specific results assuch, but rather in joining/exchanging diff erent languages, questions and methods developed in the respective disciplines, and to thus stimulate a broad interdisciplinary research. The topics, indeed, vary from the effect of groundmotion on the stochastic response of suspension bridges to coupling effects between different vibrations in rotor-blade systems. All lectures delivered at the Conference are recorded in their full text. Audience: Scientists,researchers and graduate students in physics and engineering |

Note: | Optimization under constraints is an essential part of everyday life. Indeed, we routinely solve problems by striking a balance between contradictory interests, individual desires and material contingencies. This notion ofequilibrium was dear to thin kers of the enlightenment, as illustrated by Montesquieus famous formulation: In all magistracies, the greatness of the power must be compensated by the brevity of the duration. Astonishingly, naturallaws are guided by a similar principle. Variational pri nciples have proven to be surprisingly fertile. For example, Fermat used variational methods to demonstrate that light follows the fastest route from one point to another, an ideawhich came to be known as Fermats principle, a cornerstone of geometrical op tics. Variational Principles in Physics explains variational principles and charts their use throughout modern physics. The heart of the book is devoted tothe analytical mechanics of Lagrange and Hamilton, the basic tools of any physicist. Prof. Basdevant also offers simple but rich first impressions of Einsteins General Relativity, Feynmans Quantum Mechanics, and more revealingand amazing interconnections between various fields of physics. A graduate of the Ecole Normale Superieure, Jean-Louis Basdevant is Professor and former Chair of the Department of Physics at the Ecole Polytechnique, and Director ofResearch for the CNRS. Specializing in the theoretical physics of elementary particles, quantum field theory and astrophysics, Prof. Basdevant works in t he Leprince-Ringuet Laboratory at the Ecole Polytechnique |

Note: | This volume contains the proceedings of the international workshop Variational Problems in Materials Science, which was jointly organized by the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste and by the Dipartimentodi Matematica ``Franc esco Brioschi'' of the Politecnico di Milano. The conference took place at SISSA from September 6 to 10, 2004. The study of variational problems in materials science has a long history, and it has contributed a lotin shaping our understanding on how mater ials work and perform. There is, however, a recent renewed interest in this subject as a consequence of the fruitful interaction between mathematical analysis and the modelling of new,technologically advanced materials. On one hand, a sizable group of ana lysts has found in materials science a valuable source of inspiration for new variational theories and interesting problems. On the other hand, workers in thefields of theoretical, applied, and computational mechanics are increasingly using innovative var iational techniques. The workshop intended to review some of the recent advances stemming from the successful interaction between the twocommunities, and to identify promising areas for further cooperation. Talks were devoted to a wide spectrum of analyti cal techniques and of physical systems and phenomena. They included the study of BV vector fields, path functionalsover Wasserstein spaces, variational approaches to quasi-static evolution, free-discontinuity problems with applications to fracture and pla sticity, systems with hysteresis or with interfacial energies, evolution of interfaces,multi-scale analysis in ferromagnetism and ferroelectricity, variational techniques for the study of crystal plasticity, of dislocations, and of concentrations in Ginzb urg-Landau functionals, concentrated contact interactions, andphase transitions in biaxial liquid crystals. This volume collects contributions authored or co-authored by 11 of the 20 speakers invited to |

Note: | Computer simulations not only belong to the most important methods for the theoretical investigation of granular materials, but also provide the tools that have enabled much of the expanding research by physicists and engineers.The present book is in tended to serve as an introduction to the application of numerical methods to systems of granular particles. Accordingly, emphasis is placed on a general understanding of the subject rather than on thepresentation of the latest advances in numerical algor ithms. Although a basic knowledge of C++ is needed for the understanding of the numerical methods and algorithms in the book, it avoids usage of elegant but complicated algorithmsto remain accessible for those who prefer to use a different programming lan guage. While the book focuses more on models than on the physics of granular material, many applications to real systems are presented |

Note: | Granular or particulate materials arise in almost every aspect of our lives, including many familiar materials such as tea, coffee, sugar, sand, cement and powders. At some stage almost every industrial process involves aparticulate material, and it is usually the cause of the disruption to the smooth running of the process. In the natural environment, understanding the behaviour of particulate materials is vital in many geophysical processes such asearthquakes, landslides and avalanches. This book i s a collection of current research from some of the major contributors in the topic of modelling the behaviour of granular materials. Papers from every area of current activity areincluded, such as theoretical, numerical, engineering and computational app roaches. This book illustrates the numerous diverse approaches to one of the outstanding problems of modern continuum mechanics |
