Integral Equations A Practical Treatment from Spectral Theory to Applications

Author: David Porter
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521337429
Release Date: 1990-09-28
Genre: Mathematics

This book gives a rigorous and practical treatment of integral equations and aims to tackle the solution of integral equations using a blend of abstract structural results and more direct, down-to-earth mathematics. The interplay between these two approaches is a central feature of the text, and it allows a thorough account to be given of many of the types of integral equation that arise, particularly in numerical analysis and fluid mechanics. Because it is not always possible to find explicit solutions to the problems posed, much attention is devoted to obtaining qualitative information and approximations and the associated error estimates.

Nonlinear Systems

Author: P. G. Drazin
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521406684
Release Date: 1992-06-26
Genre: Mathematics

A coherent treatment of nonlinear systems covering chaos, fractals, and bifurcation, as well as equilibrium, stability, and nonlinear oscillations. The systems treated are mostly of difference and differential equations. The author introduces the mathematical properties of nonlinear systems as an integrated theory, rather than simply presenting isolated fashionable topics. The topics are discussed in as concrete a way as possible, worked examples and problems are used to motivate and illustrate the general principles. More advanced parts of the text are denoted by asterisks, thus making it ideally suited to both undergraduate and graduate courses.

Incompressible Flow and the Finite Element Method Isothermal Laminar Flow

Author: P. M. Gresho
Publisher: Wiley
ISBN: 0471492507
Release Date: 2000-06-29
Genre: Science

This comprehensive two-volume reference covers the application of the finite element method to incompressible flows in fluid mechanics, addressing the theoretical background and the development of appropriate numerical methods applied to their solution. Volume One provides extensive coverage of the prototypical fluid mechanics equation: the advection-diffusion equation. For both this equation and the equations of principal interest - the Navier-Stokes equations (covered in detail in Volume Two) - a discussion of both the continuous and discrete equations is presented, as well as explanations of how to properly march the time-dependent equations using smart implicit methods. Boundary and initial conditions, so important in applications, are carefully described and discussed, including well-posedness. The important role played by the pressure, so confusing in the past, is carefully explained. The book explains and emphasizes consistency in six areas: * consistent mass matrix * consistent pressure Poisson equation * consistent penalty methods * consistent normal direction * consistent heat flux * consistent forces Fully indexed and referenced, this book is an essential reference tool for all researchers, students and applied scientists in incompressible fluid mechanics.

Release Date: 1998-06-18
Genre: Science

This comprehensive reference work covers all the important details regarding the application of the finite element method to incompressible flows. It addresses the theoretical background and the detailed development of appropriate numerical methods applied to the solution of a wide range of incompressible flows, beginning with extensive coverage of the advection-diffusion equation in volume one. For both this equation and the equations of principal interest - the Navier-Stokes equations, covered in detail in volume two - detailed discussion of both the continuous and discrete equations is presented, as well as explanations of how to properly march the time-dependent equations using smart implicit methods. Boundary and initial conditions, so important in applications, are carefully described and discussed, including well-posedness. The important role played by the pressure, so confusing in the past, is carefully explained. Together, this two volume work explains and emphasizes consistency in six areas: ? consistent mass matrix ? consistent pressure Poisson equation ? consistent penalty methods ? consistent normal direction ? consistent heat flux ? consistent forces Fully indexed and referenced, this book is an essential reference tool for all researchers, students and applied scientists in incompressible fluid mechanics.

Aus den Besprechungen: "Mit der gelungenen Übersetzung wird dem deutschen Studenten, Dozenten und Ingenieur ein schon seit 1982 in den USA verbreitetes und bewährtes Standardwerk zugängig gemacht. Dieses Buch besticht zunächst dadurch, daß die Finite-Element-Methode in großer Breite abgehandelt wird. ... Dabei fehlt es nicht an Tiefe der Durchdringung und mathematischer Strenge. Didaktisch wird geschickt von jeweils einführenden Abschnitten und vielen Berechnungsbeispielen ausgegangen. ... Dieses hervorragende Lehrbuch und Nachschlagewerk dürfte auch den deutschen Fachleuten ein unentbehrlicher Begleiter werden." Schweissen & Schneiden#1 "... Im Anhang werden anhand des abgedruckten Programs STAP alle wesentlichen Aspekte, die die Implementierung der Verfahren betreffen, erörtert. Zahlreiche Zahlenbeispiele sorgen dafür, daß auch Leser mit nur geringen Vorkenntnissen den "roten Faden" nicht verlieren. Das Buch dokumentiert auf eindrucksvolle Weise den hohen Entwicklungsstandard der Methode der Finiten Elemente. Es ist ein sehr gutes Hilfsmittel für die Ausbildung von Studenten der Ingenieurwissenschaften in höheren Semestern. Darüber hinaus kann es aber auch allen interessierten Ingenieuren als Grundlagenwerk sehr empfohlen werden." Bautechnik#2
