Biotechnologies and Biomimetics for Civil Engineering
Putting forward an innovative approach to solving current technological problems faced by human society, this book encompasses a holistic way of perceiving the potential of natural systems. Nature has developed several materials and processes which both maintain an optimal performance and are also totally biodegradable, properties which can be used in civil engineering.Delivering the latestStability of Dynamical Systems
Monograph Series on Nonlinear Science and Complexity (Book #5)
The main purpose of developing stability theory is to examine dynamic responses of a system to disturbances as the time approaches infinity. It has been and still is the object of intense investigations due to its intrinsic interest and its relevance to all practical systems in engineering, finance, natural science and social science. This monograph provides some state-of-the-art expositions ofHyperbolic Conservation Laws and Related Analysis with Applications
Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics (Book #49)
This book presents thirteen papers, representing the most significant advances and current trends in nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws and related analysis with applications. Topics covered include a survey on multidimensional systems of conservation laws as well as novel results on liquid crystals, conservation laws with discontinuous flux functions, and applications to sedimentation. AlsoErgodic Theory, Open Dynamics, and Coherent Structures
Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics (Book #70)
This book is comprised of selected research articles developed from a workshop on Ergodic Theory, Probabilistic Methods and Applications, held in April 2012 at the Banff International Research Station. It contains contributions from world leading experts in ergodic theory, numerical dynamical systems, molecular dynamics and ocean/atmosphere dynamics, nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. TheIntroduction to the Mathematics of Inversion in Remote Sensing and Indirect Measurements
This graduate-level monograph develops the background and fundamental theory of inversion processes used in remote sensing. The treatment starts at an elementary level and is largely self-contained; each chapter begins with an elementary discussion outlining problems and questions to be covered and concludes with a bibliography.After an introductory chapter, the text progresses to simple problemsAlmost Automorphic Type and Almost Periodic Type Functions in Abstract Spaces
This book presents a comprehensive introduction to the concepts of almost periodicity, asymptotic almost periodicity, almost automorphy, asymptotic almost automorphy, pseudo-almost periodicity, and pseudo-almost automorphy as well as their recent generalizations. Some of the results presented are either new or else cannot be easily found in the mathematical literature. Despite the noticeable andQuantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory
Explaining the concepts of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory in a precise mathematical language, this textbook is an ideal introduction for graduate students in mathematics, helping to prepare them for further studies in quantum physics. The textbook covers topics that are central to quantum physics: non-relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum statistical mechanics, relativistic quantumGuide to Three Dimensional Structure and Motion Factorization
Advances in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
The problem of structure and motion recovery from image sequences is an important theme in computer vision. Considerable progress has been made in this field during the past two decades, resulting in successful applications in robot navigation, augmented reality, industrial inspection, medical image analysis, and digital entertainment, among other areas. However, many of these methods work onlyDifference Equations by Differential Equation Methods
Cambridge Monographs on Applied and Computational Mathematics (Book #27)
Most well-known solution techniques for differential equations exploit symmetry in some form. Systematic methods have been developed for finding and using symmetries, first integrals and conservation laws of a given differential equation. Here the author explains how to extend these powerful methods to difference equations, greatly increasing the range of solvable problems. Beginning with anTopology and Geometry for Physicists
Differential geometry and topology are essential tools for many theoretical physicists, particularly in the study of condensed matter physics, gravity, and particle physics. Written by physicists for physics students, this text introduces geometrical and topological methods in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. It assumes no detailed background in topology or geometry, and it emphasizesProgress in Partial Differential Equations
Asymptotic Profiles, Regularity and Well-Posedness
Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics (Book #44)
Progress in Partial Differential Equations is devoted to modern topics in the theory of partial differential equations. It consists of both original articles and survey papers covering a wide scope of research topics in partial differential equations and their applications. The contributors were participants of the 8th ISAAC congress in Moscow in 2011 or are members of the PDE interest group of
