  • Statistical Dynamicsby Radu Balescu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 110.00

    In the first part of this book, classical nonequilibrium statistical mechanics is developed. Starting from the Hamiltonian dynamics of the molecules, it leads through the irreversible kinetic equations to the level of fluid mechanics. For simple systems, all the transport coefficients are determined by the molecular properties.The second part of the... 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...

  • Waves and Stability in Continuous Mediaby Roberto Monaco; Sebastiano Pennisi; Salvatore Rionero; Tommaso Ruggeri

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 354.00

    This book contains about 20 invited papers and 40 contributed papers in the research areas of theoretical continuum mechanics, kinetic theory and numerical applications of continuum mechanics. Collectively these papers give a good overview of the activities and developments in these fields in the last few years. The proceedings have been selected for... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Chaosby Massimo Cencini; Fabio Cecconi; Angelo Vulpiani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 154.00

    Chaos: from simple models to complex systems aims to guide science and engineering students through chaos and nonlinear dynamics from classical examples to the most recent fields of research. The first part, intended for undergraduate and graduate students, is a gentle and self-contained introduction to the concepts and main tools for the characterization... more...

  • Chaos in Natureby Christophe Letellier

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 150.00

    Chaos theory deals with the description of motion (in a general sense) which cannot be predicted in the long term although produced by deterministic system, as well exemplified by meteorological phenomena. It directly comes from the Lunar theory — a three-body problem — and the difficulty encountered by astronomers to accurately predict the... more...
