#### Thermodynamics of Flowing Systems

Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 299.99This much-needed monograph presents a systematic, step-by-step approach to the continuum modeling of flow phenomena exhibited within materials endowed with a complex internal microstructure, such as polymers and liquid crystals. By combining the principles of Hamiltonian mechanics with those of irreversible thermodynamics, Antony N. Beris and Brian... more...

#### Transport Phenomena and Kinetic Theory

Springer 2007; US$ 199.00The study of kinetic equations related to gases, semiconductors, photons, traffic flow, and other systems has developed rapidly because of its role as a mathematical tool in areas such as engineering, and others. This book presents an overview of developments in the field of mathematical kinetic theory with a focus on modeling complex systems. more...

#### Stochastic Dynamics and Boltzmann Hierarchy

De Gruyter 2009; US$ 196.00The monograph is devoted to one of the most important trends in contemporary mathematical physics, the investigation of evolution equations of many-particle systems of statistical mechanics. The book systematizes rigorous results obtained in this field in recent years, and it presents contemporary methods for the investigation of evolution... more...

#### Lecture Notes on Mathematical Theory of the Boltzmann Equation

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 152.00This is a collection of four lectures on some mathematical aspects related to the nonlinear Boltzmann equation. The following topics are dealt with: derivation of kinetic equations, qualitative analysis of the initial value problem, singular perturbation analysis towards the hydrodynamic limit and computational methods towards the solution of problems... more...

#### Radiation Hydrodynamics

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 80.00Introduction to the theory and the large-scale simulation methods currently used in radiation hydrodynamics. more...

#### Generalized Boltzmann Physical Kinetics

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 210.00The most important result obtained by Prof. B. Alexeev and reflected in the book is connected with new theory of transport processes in gases, plasma and liquids. It was shown by Prof. B. Alexeev that well-known Boltzmann equation, which is the basement of the classical kinetic theory, is wrong in the definite sense. Namely in the Boltzmann equation... more...

#### Scaling Analysis in Modeling Transport and Reaction Processes

Wiley 2007; US$ 160.00This book is unique as the first effort to expound on the subject of systematic scaling analysis. Not written for a specific discipline, the book targets any reader interested in transport phenomena and reaction processes. The book is logically divided into chapters on the use of systematic scaling analysis in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer,... more...

#### Entropy Methods for the Boltzmann Equation

Springer 2007; US$ 44.95Entropy and entropy production have become mathematical tools for kinetic and hydrodynamic limits. This title illustrates the role of entropy and entropy production in a mutual and complementary manner. It describes the mathematical theory of convergence to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation and its relation to various problems and fields. more...

#### Computational Methods in Transport

Springer 2008; US$ 129.00The focus of this book deals with a cross cutting issue affecting all transport disciplines, whether it be photon, neutron, charged particle or neutrino transport. That is, verification and validation (V&V). In other words, are the equations being solved correctly and are the correct equations being solved? Verification and validation assures a scientist,... more...

#### An Introduction to the Boltzmann Equation and Transport Processes in Gases

Springer 2010; US$ 149.00This book deals with the classical kinetic theory of gases. Its aim is to present the basic principles of this theory within an elementary framework and from a more rigorous approach based on the Boltzmann equation. The subjects are presented in a self-contained manner such that the readers can understand and learn some methods used in the kinetic... more...
