Analogies play a fundamental role in science. To understand how and why, at a given moment, a certain analogy was used, one has to know the specific, historical circumstances under which the new idea was developed. This historical background is never presented in scientific articles and quite rarely in books. For the general reader, the undergraduate... more...

Until recently, the Mori-Zwanzig projection operator method, though powerful and simple, has been considered as a half-heuristic one. This book is devoted to a rigorous generalization of this method as well as its applications to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. The well-known idea of the description of dynamical system evolution in terms of collective... more...

Recent developments of discrete methods of fluid dynamics, particularly the two most relevant aspects: the "half" discrete case discrete Boltzmann equation; and the "totally" discrete one lattice gas were discussed. Both the conceptual and numerical significance of these discrete models were covered as well as the... more...
