  • Mechanics of Continua and Wave Dynamicsby L. Brekhovskikh; V. Goncharov

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 99.00

    This text is based on lectures given by the authors to students of the Physico­ Technical Institute in Moscow in the course of many years. Teaching mechan­ ics of continuous media to students in physics has some specific features. Un­ fortunately, the students rarely have enough time for this branch of science. Over a comparatively short period of... more...

  • Toward a New Millennium in Galaxy Morphologyby David L. Block; Ivânio Puerari; Alan Stockton; DeWet Ferreira

    Springer Netherlands 2012; Not Available

    South Africa - a land of paradigm shifts. A land where we are willing to leave behind the old, to bravely accept the new. What do we need to exit the dark ages in the morphology of galaxies? How prevalent is the cherishing of old concepts? Traditional morphology has been `mask-oriented', focusing on masks of dust and gas which may constitute only... more...

  • Topology Design of Structuresby Martin P. Bendsøe; Carlos A. Mota Soares

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 499.00

    Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop, Sesimbra, Portugal, June 20-26, 1992 more...

  • Physikby S. Brandt; H.D. Dahmen

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; Not Available

    Der vorliegende Band ist der erste Teil der Niederschrift eines Physikkurses, der di'e grundlegenden experimentellen Befunde und die theoretischen Methoden zur Beschreibung und zum Verständnis der Phänomene und ihrer Gesetzmäßigkeiten gleichgewichtig behandelt. Entsprechend dieser Zielsetzung ist der Kurs ge­ meinsam von einem experimentellen und einem... more...

  • Numerical Methods in Fluid Dynamicsby M. Holt

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 129.00

    This monograph is based on a graduate course, Mechanical Engipeering 266, which was developed over a number of years at the University of California-Berkeley. Shorter versions of the course were given at the University of Paris VI in 1969, and at the University of Paris XI in 1972. The course was originally presented as the last of a three quarter... more...

  • Stability of Fluid Motions Iby D. D. Joseph

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 129.00

    The study of stability aims at understanding the abrupt changes which are observed in fluid motions as the external parameters are varied. It is a demanding study, far from full grown"whose most interesting conclusions are recent. I have written a detailed account of those parts of the recent theory which I regard as established. Acknowledgements I... more...

  • Inequalities in Mechanics and Physicsby G. Duvant; C. W. John; J. L. Lions

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 129.00

    1. We begin by giving a simple example of a partial differential inequality that occurs in an elementary physics problem. We consider a fluid with pressure u(x, t) at the point x at the instant t that 3 occupies a region Q oflR bounded by a membrane r of negligible thickness that, however, is semi-permeable, i. e., a membrane that permits the fluid... more...

  • Long-Time Predictions in Dynamicsby V.G. Szebehely; B.D. Tapley

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 239.00

    Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute, Cortina D'Ampezzo, Italy, August 3-16, 1975 more...

  • A Course in Elasticityby B. M. Fraeijs de Veubeke; F. A. Ficken; D. A. Simons

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 109.00

    This book is based on lecture notes of the late Professor de Veubeke. The subject is presented at a level suitable for graduate students in engineering, physics, or mathematics. Some exposure to linear algebra, complex analysis, variational calculus, or basic continuum mechanics would be helpful. The first third of the book contains the fundamentals... more...

  • Instability of Continuous Systemsby Horst Leipholz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 149.00

    Until recently there was no uniform stability theory. Different approaches to stability problems had been developed in the different branches of mechanics. In the field of elasticity, it was mainly the so­ called static method and energy method which were used, while in the field of dynamics it was the kinetic method, which found its perfect expression... more...
