The Analytical Foundations of Celestial Mechanics

Author: Aurel Wintner
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 9780486780603
Release Date: 2014-06-18
Genre: Science

With this 1941 monograph, Aurel Wintner joined Poincaré, Birkhoff, and others in placing celestial mechanics on a sound mathematical basis. The product of many years of work by the author, it remains an extremely valuable contribution to the literature of this field. Starting with a review of dynamical operations, the treatment advances to local and non-local questions, dynamical systems, the problem of two bodies and the problem of several bodies, and an introduction to the restricted problem. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics, the text is amply supplemented by a substantial section of notes and references in which a great deal of the historical literature from which it derives is discussed.

Non Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics

Author: Ilya Prigogine
Publisher: Courier Dover Publications
ISBN: 9780486820408
Release Date: 2017-02-27
Genre: Science

Ilya Prigogine won the 1977 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his contributions to non-equilibrium thermodynamics. This groundbreaking 1962 monograph, written for researchers and graduate students in this field, was his first book-length contribution to this subject. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in physics and chemistry, the treatment begins with examinations of the Liouville equation, anharmonic solids, and Brownian motion. Subsequent chapters explore weakly coupled gases, scattering theory and short-range forces, distribution functions and their diagrammatic representation, the time dependence of diagrams, the approach to equilibrium in ionized gases, and statistical hydrodynamics. Additional topics include general kinetic equations, general H-theorem, quantum mechanics, and irreversibility and invariants of motion. Appendices, a bibliography, list of symbols, and an index conclude the text.
