#### The Discovery of Dynamics

Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 87.99 US$ 75.67Ever since Newton created dynamics, there has been controversy about its foundations. Are space and time absolute? Do they form a rigid but invisible framework and container of the universe? Or are space, time, and motion relative? If so, does Newton's 'framework' arise through the influence of the universe at large, as Ernst Mach suggested? Einstein's... more...

#### Non-Linear Dynamics Near and Far from Equilibrium

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 152.41We will be concerned mainly with systems with in?nite degrees of freedom which can however, be described by a few variables. These variables must necessarily be ?elds i. e. functions of space and time. A typical example would be to try to describethe?owofairaroundus. Thevariablesthatwouldbenecessarytodescribe the state of air would certainly be its... more...

#### Exploring the Limits of Preclassical Mechanics

Springer New York 2013; US$ 152.41The question of when and how the basic concepts that characterize modern science arose in Western Europe has long been central to the history of science. This book examines the transition from Renaissance engineering and philosophy of nature to classical mechanics oriented on the central concept of velocity. For this new edition, the authors include... more...

#### Fluid Dynamics in Complex Fractured-Porous Systems

Wiley 2015; US$ 169.95 US$ 147.29Despite of many years of studies, predicting fluid flow, heat, and chemical transport in fractured-porous media remains a challenge for scientists and engineers worldwide. This monograph is the third in a series on the dynamics of fluids and transport in fractured rock published by the American Geophysical Union (Geophysical Monograph Series, Vol.... more...

#### La búsqueda de la velocidad

Shell Education 2010; US$ 8.99The need for speed is the motivating factor in this engaging book. Readers learn the history of travel from the very slow to the supersonic and beyond, including everything in between. They learn and discover the factors that influence motion for all types of vehicles: land, air, and water alike. They also learn different ways to measure speed and... more...

#### Bose-Condensed Gases at Finite Temperatures

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 140.00 US$ 114.80The first treatment of Bose?Einstein condensation at finite temperatures for researchers and graduate students in atomic, molecular and optical physics. more...

#### IUTAM Symposium on Nonlinear Stochastic Dynamics and Control

Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 141.52Non-linear stochastic systems are at the center of many engineering disciplines and progress in theoretical research had led to a better understanding of non-linear phenomena. This book provides information on new fundamental results and their applications which are beginning to appear across the entire spectrum of mechanics. The outstanding points... more...
