#### Advances in Transport Phenomena

Springer 2009; US$ 279.00This book details major advances by theoretical, numerical and experimental studies from a molecular, microscopic, mesoscopic or macroscopic point of view across the spectrum of transport phenomena, from scientific enquiries to practical applications. 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...

#### Energy Localisation and Transfer

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 251.00This book provides an introduction to localised excitations in spatially discrete systems, from the experimental, numerical and mathematical points of view. Also known as discrete breathers, nonlinear lattice excitations and intrinsic localised modes, these are spatially localised time periodic motions in networks of dynamical units. Examples of such... 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...

#### 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...

#### Interfacial Transport Phenomena

Springer US 2007; US$ 269.00Revised and updated extensively from the previous edition Discusses transport phenomena at common lines or three-phase lines of contact Provides a comprehensive summary about the extensions of continuum mechanics to the nanoscale 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...

#### 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...

#### Multicomponent Interfacial Transport

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00A thermodynamically consistent description of the transport across interfaces in mixtures has for a long time been an open issue. This research clarifies that the interface between a liquid and a vapor in a mixture is in local equilibrium during evaporation and condensation. It implies that the thermodynamics developed for interfaces by Gibbs can be... more...

#### Numerical Methods in Multidimensional Radiative Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 179.00Traditionally, radiative transfer has been the domain of astrophysicists and climatologists. In nuclear technology one has been dealing with the ana- gous equations of neutron transport. In recent years, applications of radiative transferincombustionmachinedesignandinmedicinebecamemoreandmore important. In all these disciplines one uses the radiative... more...
