#### The Dawn of Fluid Dynamics

Wiley 2007; US$ 119.00 US$ 103.13This is the first publication to describe the evolution of fluid dynamics as a major field in modern science and engineering. It contains a description of the interaction between applied research and application, taking as its example the history of fluid mechanics in the 20th century. The focus lies on the work of Ludwig Prandtl, founder of the aerodynamic... more...

#### Conditional and Preferential Logics: Proof Methods and Theorem Proving

IOS Press 2010; US$ 114.00This volume contains a revised and updated version of the authorâ€™s Ph.D. dissertation, and is focused on proof methods and theorem proving for Conditional and Preferential logics. Conditional logics are extensions of classical logic by means of a conditional operator, usually denoted as =>. Conditional logics have a long history, and recently they... more...

#### An Informal Conceptual Introduction to Turbulence

Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 134.31This book is a second completely revised edition of "An Informal Introduction to Turbulence". The main emphasis is on conceptual and problematic aspects, physical phenomena, observations, misconceptions and unresolved issues rather than on conventional formalistic aspects, models, etc. Apart from the obvious fundamental importance of turbulent... more...

#### Nonplussed!

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 16.95 US$ 15.42Math--the application of reasonable logic to reasonable assumptions--usually produces reasonable results. But sometimes math generates astonishing paradoxes--conclusions that seem completely unreasonable or just plain impossible but that are nevertheless demonstrably true. Did you know that a losing sports team can become a winning one by adding worse... more...

#### Statistical Theory and Modeling for Turbulent Flows

Wiley 2011; US$ 115.00 US$ 99.67Providing a comprehensive grounding in the subject of turbulence, Statistical Theory and Modeling for Turbulent Flows develops both the physical insight and the mathematical framework needed to understand turbulent flow. Its scope enables the reader to become a knowledgeable user of turbulence models; it develops analytical tools for developers of... more...

#### Theory of Elasticity

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 278.71This book provides the analytical tools for calculating stresses and deformations in a strained elastic body. It gives engineers, in a simple form, a clear indication of the necessary fundamental knowledge of the theory of elasticity. more...

#### Nonlinear Waves

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 38.00The outcome of a conference held in East Carolina University in June 1982, this book provides an account of developments in the theory and application of nonlinear waves in both fluids and plasmas. more...

#### Non-linear Vibrations

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 50.00This book expounds the theory of non-linear vibrations, a topic of great interest at present. more...

#### Nonlinear Diffusive Waves

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 35.00This monograph deals with Burgers' equation and its generalisations. more...
