Particles in Flows

Title: Particles in Flows

Author: Tomás Bodnár, Giovanni P. Galdi, and Neč

eISBN: 9783319602820

Publisher: Birkhäuser Boston

Publication Date: 2017-09-30

Summary from ebook Central: This book aims to face particles in flows from many different, but essentially interconnected sides and points of view. Thus the selection of authors and topics represented in the chapters, ranges from deep mathematical analysis of the associated models, through the techniques of their numerical solution, towards real applications and physical implications. The scope and structure of the book as well as the selection of authors was motivated by the very successful summer course and workshop "Particles in Flows'' that was held in Prague in the August of 2014. This meeting revealed the need for a book dealing with this specific and challenging multidisciplinary subject, i.e. particles in industrial, environmental and biomedical flows and the combination of fluid mechanics, solid body mechanics with various aspects of specific applications.

Stochastic Equations in Infinite Dimensions

Title: Stochastic Equations in Infinite Dimensions

Author: Giuseppe Da Prato and Jerzy Zabczyk

eISBN: 9781139907392

Publisher: MIT Press

Publication Date: 2016-02-05

Summary from eBook Central: Now in its second edition, this book gives a systematic and self-contained presentation of basic results on stochastic evolution equations in infinite dimensional, typically Hilbert and Banach, spaces. In the first part the authors give a self-contained exposition of the basic properties of probability measure on separable Banach and Hilbert spaces, as required later; they assume a reasonable background in probability theory and finite dimensional stochastic processes. The second part is devoted to the existence and uniqueness of solutions of a general stochastic evolution equation, and the third concerns the qualitative properties of those solutions. Appendices gather together background results from analysis that are otherwise hard to find under one roof. This revised edition includes two brand new chapters surveying recent developments in the area and an even more comprehensive bibliography, making this book an essential and up-to-date resource for all those working in stochastic differential equations.

Weather by Numbers: The Genesis of Modern Meteorology

Title: Weather by the Numbers : The Genesis of Modern Meteorology

Author: Kristine C. Harper

eISBN: 9780262274982

Publisher: MIT Press

Publication Date: 2008-09-01

Summary from eBook Central: For much of the first half of the twentieth century, meteorology was more art than science, dependent on an individual forecaster's lifetime of local experience. In Weather by the Numbers, Kristine Harper tells the story of the transformation of meteorology from a "guessing science" into a sophisticated scientific discipline based on physics and mathematics. What made this possible was the development of the electronic digital computer; earlier attempts at numerical weather prediction had foundered on the human inability to solve nonlinear equations quickly enough for timely forecasting. After World War II, the combination of an expanded observation network developed for military purposes, newly trained meteorologists, savvy about math and physics, and the nascent digital computer created a new way of approaching atmospheric theory and weather forecasting. This transformation of a discipline, Harper writes, was the most important intellectual achievement of twentieth-century meteorology, and paved the way for the growth of computer-assisted modeling in all the sciences.

Coordinate Measuring Machines and Systems

Title: Coordinate Measuring Machines and Systems

Author: Robert J. Hocken and Paulo H. Pereira

eISBN: 9781420017533

Publisher: Chapman and Hall/CRC

Publication Date: 2016-04-19

Summary from eBook Central: Since John Bosch edited and published the first version of this book in 1995, the world of manufacturing and coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and coordinate measuring systems (CMSs) has changed considerably. However, the basic physics of the machines has not changed in essence but have become more deeply understood. Completely revised and updated to reflect the change that have taken place in the last sixteen years, Coordinate Measuring Machines and Systems, Second Edition covers the evolution of measurements and development of standards, the use of CMMs, probing systems, algorithms and filters, performance and financial evaluations, and accuracy. See What's New in the Second Edition: Explores the rising expectations of the user for operator interfaces, ease of use, algorithms, speed, communications, and computational capabilities Details the expansion of machines such as the non-Cartesian CMM in market share and their increase in accuracy and utility Discusses changes in probing systems, and the number of points they can deliver to ever more sophisticated software Examines the pressures created by new applications to improve machine performance The book features two new editors, one from academia and one from a metrology intensive user industry, many new authors, and known experts who have grown with the field since the last version. Furnishing case studies from a wide range of installations, the book details how CMMs can best be applied to gain a competitive advantage in a variety of business settings.

Rain Formation in Warm Clouds

Title: Rain Formation in Warm Clouds : General Systems Theory

Author: A. M. Selvam

eISBN: 9783319132693

Publisher: Springer

Publication Date: 2015-01-01

Summary from eBook Central: This book aims to promote the understanding of some of the basic mathematical and scientific issues in the subjects relating to climate dynamics, chaos and quantum mechanics. It is based on substantial research work in atmospheric science carried out over twenty years. Atmospheric flows exhibit self similar fractal fluctuations, a signature of long-range correlations on all space-time scales. Realistic simulation and prediction of atmospheric flows requires the incorporation of the physics of observed fractal fluctuation characteristics in traditional meteorological theory. A general systems theory model for fractal space-time fluctuations in turbulent atmospheric flows is presented and applied to the formation of rain in warm clouds. This model gives scale-free universal governing equations for cloud growth processes. The model predicted cloud parameters are in agreement with reported observations, in particular, the cloud drop-size distribution. Rain formation can occur in warm clouds within 30 minutes as observed in practice under favourable conditions of moisture supply in the environment. Traditional cloud physical concepts for rain development requires over an hour for a full-sized raindrop to form. The book provides background reading for postgraduate students of Meteorology, Atmospheric Sciences/Physics, Environmental Sciences, and scientists working in the field of the topic of the book as well as the multidisciplinary field of Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos.

Aviation Fuel Properties

Title: Handbook of aviation fuel properties

Author: Coordinating Research Council

OCLC Number: 890598068

Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group; 2013

Title: Modeling of atmospheric chemistry

Author: Guy Brasseur and Daniel J. Jacob

ISBN: 9781107146969

Publisher: Cambridge University Press; 2017

Summary from publisher's website: Mathematical modeling of atmospheric composition is a formidable scientific and computational challenge. This comprehensive presentation of the modeling methods used in atmospheric chemistry focuses on both theory and practice, from the fundamental principles behind models, through to their applications in interpreting observations. An encyclopaedic coverage of methods used in atmospheric modeling, including their advantages and disadvantages, makes this a one-stop resource with a large scope. Particular emphasis is given to the mathematical formulation of chemical, radiative, and aerosol processes; advection and turbulent transport; emission and deposition processes; as well as major chapters on model evaluation and inverse modeling. The modeling of atmospheric chemistry is an intrinsically interdisciplinary endeavour, bringing together meteorology, radiative transfer, physical chemistry and biogeochemistry, making the book of value to a broad readership. Introductory chapters and a review of the relevant mathematics make this book instantly accessible to graduate students and researchers in the atmospheric sciences.
