Introduction to Mathematical Fluid Dynamics
An introduction to the behavior of liquids and gases, this volume provides excellent coverage of kinematics, momentum principle, Newtonian fluid, rotating fluids, compressibility, and more. It is geared toward advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics and general science, and it requires a background in calculus and vector analysis. 1971 edition.Introduction to Mathematical Fluid Dynamics
This introduction to the behavior of liquids and gases is geared toward advanced undergraduate and graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering, and the physical sciences. It offers excellent coverage of kinematics, momentum principle and ideal fluid, Newtonian fluid, fluids of small viscosity, and aspects of rotating fluids and compressibility. 1971 edition.An Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations
This refreshing, introductory textbook covers both standard techniques for solving ordinary differential equations, as well as introducing students to qualitative methods such as phase-plane analysis. The presentation is concise, informal yet rigorous; it can be used either for 1-term or 1-semester courses. Topics such as Euler's method, difference equations, the dynamics of the logistic map, andA Student's Guide to Lagrangians and Hamiltonians
A concise but rigorous treatment of variational techniques, focussing primarily on Lagrangian and Hamiltonian systems, this book is ideal for physics, engineering and mathematics students. The book begins by applying Lagrange's equations to a number of mechanical systems. It introduces the concepts of generalized coordinates and generalized momentum. Following this the book turns to the calculusBasic Concepts in Computational Physics
With the development of ever more powerful computers a new branch of physics and engineering evolved over the last few decades: Computer Simulation or Computational Physics. It serves two main purposes:- Solution of complex mathematical problems such as, differential equations, minimization/optimization, or high-dimensional sums/integrals.- Direct simulation of physical processes, as for instance,The Schrödinger-Virasoro Algebra
Mathematical structure and dynamical Schrödinger symmetries
Theoretical and Mathematical Physics
This monograph provides the first up-to-date and self-contained presentation of a recently discovered mathematical structure—the Schrödinger-Virasoro algebra. Just as Poincaré invariance or conformal (Virasoro) invariance play a key rôle in understanding, respectively, elementary particles and two-dimensional equilibrium statistical physics, this algebra of non-relativistic conformal symmetriesString Theory: Volume 1, An Introduction to the Bosonic String
Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics
String Theory comprises two volumes which give a comprehensive and pedagogic account of the subject. Volume 1, first published in 1998, provides a thorough introduction to the bosonic string. The first four chapters introduce the central ideas of string theory, the tools of conformal field theory and of the Polyakov path integral, and the covariant quantization of the string. The next threeNumerical Approximation Methods
This book presents numerical and other approximation techniques for solving various types of mathematical problems that cannot be solved analytically. In addition to well known methods, it contains some non-standard approximation techniques that are now formally collected as well as original methods developed by the author that do not appear in the literature.This book contains an extensiveAn Introduction to the Theory of Elasticity
This accessible text requires minimal mathematical background and provides a firm foundation for more advanced studies. Topics include deformation and stress, the derivation of the equations of finite elasticity, and the formulation of infinitesimal elasticity with application to some two- and three-dimensional static problems and elastic waves. Solutions. 1980 edition.
