  • Multiscale and Multiresolution Approaches in Turbulenceby Pierre Sagaut; Sébastien Deck; Marc Terracol

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 251.00

    This unique book gives a general unified presentation of the use of the multiscale/multiresolution approaches in the field of turbulence. The coverage ranges from statistical models developed for engineering purposes to multiresolution algorithms for the direct computation of turbulence. It provides the only available up-to-date reviews dealing with... more...

  • Smooth Particle Applied Mechanicsby William Graham Hoover

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 176.00

    This book takes readers through all the steps necessary for solving hard problems in continuum mechanics with smooth particle methods. Pedagogical problems clarify the generation of initial conditions, the treatment of boundary conditions, the integration of the equations of motion, and the analysis of the results. Particular attention is paid to the... more...

  • Waves and Stability in Continuous Mediaby N. Manganaro; R. Monaco; S. Rionero

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 351.00

    This volume is the fifth in a series of proceedings which started in 1999. The contributions include the latest results on the theory of wave propagation, extended thermodynamics, and the stability of the solutions to partial differential equations. Sample Chapter(s). Chapter 1: Reciprocal Transformations and Integrable Hamiltonian Hydrodynamic Type... more...

  • Emergent Natureby Miroslav M. Novak

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 249.00

    This book, based on presentations made at the international conference Fractals 2002, is of interest to everyone in the general field of nonlinear dynamics. The abundance of papers from numerous disciplines makes it exciting reading and provides a unifying thread through the topics, such as ray tracing, structure of peptides, modeling fractal surfaces,... more...

  • In the Grip of the Distant Universeby Peter Graneau; Neal Graneau

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 62.00

    This is a book about the history of the science of inertia. Nobody denies the existence of the forces of inertia, but they are branded as “fictitious” because they do not fit smoothly into modern physics. Named by Kepler and given mathematical form by Newton, the force of inertia remains aloof because it has no obvious local cause. At... more...

  • Rayleigh-Benard Convectionby A.V. Getling

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 107.00

    This invaluable book presents a concise but systematic account of the formation of spatial flow structures in a horizontal fluid layer heated from below. Flows of this type, known as Rayleigh-Bénard convection, show important features of behaviour inherent not only in various hydrodynamic-instability phenomena but also in nonlinear pattern-forming... more...

  • Dynamical Systems and Applicationsby R.P. Agarwal

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 175.00

    World Scientific series in Applicable Analysis (WSSIAA) aims at reporting new developments of high mathematical standard and current interest. Each volume in the series shall be devoted to the mathematical analysis that has been applied or potentially applicable to the solutions of scientific, engineering, and social problems. For the past twenty five... more...

  • Phase in Opticsby Vlasta Peoinova; Antonin Luk; Jan Perina

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 132.00

    This book is devoted to the classical and quantum phases in wave and particle optics from the viewpoint of both theory and applications. Wave and beam light optics are reviewed in considerable detail, featuring optical imaging and holography in linear optics and phase conjugation methods in nonlinear optics. Photon optics is embodied here as quantum... more...

  • Quantum Dissipative Systemsby U. Weiss

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 79.00

    Recent advances in the quantum theory of macroscopic systems have brightened up the field and brought it into the focus of a general community in natural sciences. The fundamental concepts, methods and applications including the most recent developments, previously covered for the most part only in the original literature, are presented here in a comprehensive... more...
