By Peter A. Markowich

This ebook provides chosen themes in technological know-how and engineering from an applied-mathematics perspective. The defined ordinary, socioeconomic, and engineering phenomena are modeled by means of partial differential equations that relate kingdom variables similar to mass, speed, and effort to their spatial and temporal adaptations. normally, those equations are hugely nonlinear; in lots of instances they're structures, and so they characterize demanding situations even for the main sleek and complex mathematical and numerical-analytic strategies. the chosen subject matters mirror the longtime medical pursuits of the writer. They contain flows of fluids and gases, granular-material flows, organic tactics comparable to development formation on animal skins, kinetics of rarified gases, unfastened limitations, semiconductor units, and socioeconomic tactics. each one subject is in short brought in its clinical or engineering context, through a presentation of the mathematical types within the type of partial differential equations with a dialogue in their uncomplicated mathematical homes. the writer illustrates each one bankruptcy via a sequence of his personal top of the range pictures, which reveal that partial differential equations are strong instruments for modeling a wide number of phenomena influencing our day-by-day lives.

Nonlinear ordinary differential equations: Problems and solutions

A terrific better half to the recent 4th version of Nonlinear usual Differential Equations through Jordan and Smith (OUP, 2007), this article includes over 500 difficulties and fully-worked recommendations in nonlinear differential equations. With 272 figures and diagrams, matters lined comprise part diagrams within the airplane, category of equilibrium issues, geometry of the section airplane, perturbation equipment, compelled oscillations, balance, Mathieu's equation, Liapunov tools, bifurcations and manifolds, homoclinic bifurcation, and Melnikov's procedure.

Introduction to Partial Differential Equations. Second Edition

The second one version of advent to Partial Differential Equations, which initially seemed within the Princeton sequence Mathematical Notes, serves as a textual content for arithmetic scholars on the intermediate graduate point. The target is to acquaint readers with the elemental classical result of partial differential equations and to lead them into a few features of the trendy idea to the purpose the place they are going to be built to learn complicated treatises and study papers.

Solitons and the inverse scattering transform

A learn, by means of of the main participants to the speculation, of the inverse scattering rework and its software to difficulties of nonlinear dispersive waves that come up in fluid dynamics, plasma physics, nonlinear optics, particle physics, crystal lattice concept, nonlinear circuit thought and different parts.

Analytical Solution Methods for Boundary Value Problems

Analytical answer tools for Boundary worth difficulties is an broadly revised, new English language variation of the unique 2011 Russian language paintings, which supplies deep research tools and precise strategies for mathematical physicists looking to version germane linear and nonlinear boundary difficulties.

Dt Thus, for two-dimensional flows, the vorticity gets convected by the velocity field, is diffused with diffusion coefficient ν and externally produced/destroyed by the curl of the external force. For three dimensional flows an additional term appears in the vorticity formulation of the Navier–Stokes equations, which corresponds to vorticity distortion.

4), q = v1 − v2 , and S+ is the hemisphere corresponding to q · n > 0. The velocities (v∗∗ , w∗∗ ) are the pre collisional velocities of the so-called inverse collision, which results from (v, w) as post collisional velocities. The factor χ in the gain term stems from the Jacobian of the transformation dv∗∗ dw∗∗ into dvdw and from the lengths of the collisional cylinders e|q∗∗ · n||q · n|. For a constant restitution coefficient, χ = e−2 . 3 Granular Material Flows 42 Fig. 3. Barchan Dune in Sossus Vlei, Namibia Due to dissipation, a granular gas cools down.

A good understanding of the physics of granular flows is of paramount importance in order to design efficient industrial processing and handling systems.
