Genre: Science

This volume consists of refereed research articles written by some of the speakers at this international conference in honor of the sixty-fifth birthday of Jean-Michel Combes. The topics span modern mathematical physics with contributions on state-of-the-art results in the theory of random operators, including localization for random Schrodinger operators with general probability measures, random magnetic Schrodinger operators, and interacting multiparticle operators with random potentials; transport properties of Schrodinger operators and classical Hamiltonian systems; equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of open quantum systems; semiclassical methods for multiparticle systems and long-time evolution of wave packets; modeling of nanostructures; properties of eigenfunctions for first-order systems and solutions to the Ginzburg-Landau system; effective Hamiltonians for quantum resonances; quantum graphs, including scattering theory and trace formulas; random matrix theory; and quantum information theory. Graduate students and researchers will benefit from the accessibility of these articles and their current bibliographies.

Fluid Mechanics

Release Date: 2012
Genre: Science

Fluid mechanics, the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations-whether in the liquid or gaseous state or both-is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. Revised and updated by Dr. David Dowling, Fluid Mechanics, Fifth Edition is suitable for both a first or second course in fluid mechanics at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. The leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, 5e includes a free copy of the DVD "Multimedia Fluid Mechanics," second edition. With the inclusion of the DVD, students can gain additional insight about fluid flows through nearly 1,000 fluids video clips, can conduct flow simulations in any of more than 20 virtual labs and simulations, and can view dozens of other new interactive demonstrations and animations, thereby enhancing their fluid mechanics learning experience. Text has been reorganized to provide a better flow from topic to topic and to consolidate portions that belong together. Changes made to the book's pedagogy accommodate the needs of students who have completed minimal prior study of fluid mechanics. More than 200 new or revised end-of-chapter problems illustrate fluid mechanical principles and draw on phenomena that can be observed in everyday life. Includes free Multimedia Fluid Mechanics 2e DVD

ISBN: 0080470238
Release Date: 2004-05-06
Genre: Science

Fluid Mechanics, understanding and applying the principles of how motions and forces act upon fluids such as gases and liquids, is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. New to this third edition are expanded coverage of such important topics as surface boundary interfaces, improved discussions of such physical and mathematical laws as the Law of Biot and Savart and the Euler Momentum Integral. A very important new section on Computational Fluid Dynamics has been added for the very first time to this edition. Expanded and improved end-of-chapter problems will facilitate the teaching experience for students and instrutors alike. This book remains one of the most comprehensive and useful texts on fluid mechanics available today, with applications going from engineering to geophysics, and beyond to biology and general science. * Ample, useful end-of-chapter problems. * Excellent Coverage of Computational Fluid Dynamics. * Coverage of Turbulent Flows. * Solutions Manual available.
