#### Newton

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 21.95When Newton was not yet twenty-five years old, he formulated calculus, hit upon the idea of gravity, and discovered that white light was made up of all the colors of the spectrum. By 1678, Newton designed a telescope to study the movement of the planets and published Principia , a milestone in the history of science, which set forth his famous laws... more...

#### The Innermost Kernel

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; Not AvailableThe publication of W. Pauli's Scientific Correspondence by Springer-Verlag has motivated a vast research activity on Pauli's role in modern science. This excellent treatise sheds light on the ongoing dialogue between physics and psychology. more...

#### Macroscopic Transport Equations for Rarefied Gas Flows

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 99.00The well known transport laws of Navier-Stokes and Fourier fail for the simulation of processes on lengthscales in the order of the mean free path of a particle that is when the Knudsen number is not small enough. Thus, the proper simulation of flows in rarefied gases requires a more detailed description. This book discusses classical and modern... more...

#### Vorticity and Vortex Dynamics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; Not AvailableThe importance of vorticity and vortex dynamics has now been well rec- nized at both fundamental and applied levels of ?uid dynamics, as already anticipatedbyTruesdellhalfcenturyagowhenhewrotethe?rstmonograph onthesubject, The Kinematics of Vorticity(1954);andasalsoevidencedby the appearance of several books on this ?eld in 1990s.

#### Hydrodynamics and Sound

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 60.00This book is ideal as a graduate textbook and reference for the advanced learner in fluid mechanics. more...

#### Pendulum

Atria Books 2007; US$ 19.95In 1851, struggling, self-taught physicist Léon Foucault performed a dramatic demonstration inside the Panthéon in Paris. By tracking a pendulum's path as it swung repeatedly across the interior of the large ceremonial hall, Foucault offered the first definitive proof -- before an audience that comprised the cream of Parisian society, including the... more...

#### Gas Tables

New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2006; US$ 20.00The subject of compressible flow or gas dynamics deals with the thermo-fluid dynamic problems of gases and vapours. It is now an important part of the undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Fundamentals of Compressible Flow covers this subject in fourteen well organised chapters in a lucid style. A large mass of theoretical material and equations... more...

#### Wave Mechanics for Ocean Engineering

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 290.00In a unitary way, this monograph deals with a wide range of subjects related to the mechanics of sea waves. The book highlights recent theoretical results on the dynamics of random wind-generated waves, on long-term wave statistics, and on beach planform evolution. A fresh approach is given to more traditional concepts. For example, new evidence from... more...
