#### The Effect of Manipulatives on the Performance of Mathematical Problems in Elementary School Children

Publish Green 2015; US$ 9.99This e-book gives the reader information on research in mathematics, and how the use of math Manipulatives can improve math performance. Differentiated learning is a way to modify the traditional curriculum in order to address the learning styles of other students. The book takes a look at mathematics education around the world, and compares it to... more...

#### The Foundations of Mathematics

Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 23.99The transition from school mathematics to university mathematics is seldom straightforward. Students are faced with a disconnect between the algorithmic and informal attitude to mathematics at school, versus a new emphasis on proof, based on logic, and a more abstract development of general concepts, based on set theory. The authors have many years'... more...

#### Global Existence and Uniqueness of Nonlinear Evolutionary Fluid Equations

Springer Basel 2015; US$ 109.00Here are recent results in nonlinear evolutionary fluid equations such as compressible magnetohydrodynamics equations, compressible viscous micropolar fluid equations, full non-Newtonian fluid equations and non-autonomous compressible Navier-Stokes equations. more...

#### Small-Scale Gas to Liquid Fuel Synthesis

CRC Press 2015; US$ 169.95It is estimated that a large fraction of natural gas reserves are found in locations from where transport is not economical. If these isolated natural gas reserves could be converted to synthetic fuels, they would generate around 250 billion barrels of synthetic oil?a quantity equal to one-third of the Middle East?s proven oil reserves. Small-Scale... more...

#### Mathematical Models of Viscous Friction

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 49.99In this monograph we present a review of a number of recent results on the motion of a classical body immersed in an infinitely extended medium and subjected to the action of an external force. We investigate this topic in the framework of mathematical physics by focusing mainly on the class of purely Hamiltonian systems, for which very few results... more...

#### Fluid Mechanics of Viscoplasticity

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 129.00In this book, we shall consider the kinematics and dynamics of the flows of fluids exhibiting a yield stress. To highlight the principal characteristics of such fluids, the first chapter emphasizes the role played by the yield stress. Next, a careful description of the continuum mechanics behind the constitutive equations for incompressible and compressible... more...

#### Liquid Explosives

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 179.00The book drawing on the author?s nearly half a century of energetic materials research experience intends to systematically review the global researches on liquid explosives. The book focuses on the study of the conception, explosion mechanism, properties and preparation of liquid explosives. It provides a combination of theoretical knowledge and... more...

#### Basics of Aerothermodynamics

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00This successful book gives an introduction to the basics of aerothermodynamics, as applied in particular to winged re-entry vehicles and airbreathing hypersonic cruise and acceleration vehicles. The book gives a review of the issues of transport of momentum, energy and mass, real-gas effects as well as inviscid and viscous flow phenomena. In this... more...

#### Instability and Control of Massively Separated Flows

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00This book contains the outcome of the international meeting on instability, control and noise generated by massive flow separation that was organized at the Monash Center, in Prato, Italy, September 4-6, 2013. The meeting served as the final review of the EU-FP7 Instability and Control of Massively Separated Flows Marie Curie travel grant and was... more...

#### The Physics of Degradation in Engineered Materials and Devices

Momentum Press 2014; US$ 29.95Degradation is apparent in all things and is fundamental to both manufactured and natural objects. It is often described by the second law of thermodynamics, where entropy, a measure of disorder, tends to increase with time in a closed system. Things age! This concise reference work brings together experts and key players engaged in the physics of... more...
