Wave Motion: 24 (Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics) by J. Billingham,A. C. King

By J. Billingham,A. C. King

Waves are a ubiquitous and demanding characteristic of the actual international, and all through historical past it's been an important problem to appreciate them. they could propagate at the surfaces of solids and of fluids; chemical waves regulate the thrashing of your middle; site visitors jams circulate in waves down lanes crowded with automobiles. This advent to the maths of wave phenomena is geared toward complex undergraduate classes on waves for mathematicians, physicists or engineers. a few extra complex fabric on either linear and nonlinear waves is usually integrated, therefore making the publication compatible for starting graduate classes. The authors imagine a few familiarity with partial differential equations, critical transforms and asymptotic expansions in addition to an acquaintance with fluid mechanics, elasticity and electromagnetism. The context and physics that underlie the math is obviously defined firstly of every bankruptcy. labored examples and routines are provided all through, with recommendations to be had to teachers.

The Generic Chaining: Upper and Lower Bounds of Stochastic Processes (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

The elemental query of characterizing continuity and boundedness of Gaussian strategies is going again to Kolmogorov. After crucial contributions by way of R. Dudley and X. Fernique, it was once solved by means of the writer in 1985. This boost was once by means of a very good development of our knowing of the boundedness of alternative basic periods of procedures (empirical techniques, infinitely divisible strategies, and so on.

Convex Functions: Constructions, Characterizations and Counterexamples (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Like differentiability, convexity is a traditional and strong estate of services that performs an important position in lots of components of arithmetic, either natural and utilized. It ties jointly notions from topology, algebra, geometry and research, and is a crucial device in optimization, mathematical programming and video game concept.

Distributions in the Physical and Engineering Sciences, Volume 2: Linear and Nonlinear Dynamics in Continuous Media (Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis)

Distributions within the actual and Engineering Sciences is a accomplished exposition on analytic equipment for fixing technology and engineering difficulties. it's written from the unifying point of view of distribution concept and enriched with many smooth issues that are vital for practitioners and researchers.

Mathematical and Physical Fundamentals of Climate Change

Mathematical and actual basics of weather switch is the 1st ebook to supply an summary of the mathematics and physics important for scientists to appreciate and follow atmospheric and oceanic versions to weather research.  The e-book starts with simple arithmetic then leads directly to particular functions in atmospheric and ocean dynamics, corresponding to fluid dynamics, atmospheric dynamics, oceanic dynamics, and glaciers and sea point upward push.
