A Modern Introduction to the Mathematical Theory of Water Waves (Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics)

By R. S. Johnson

For over 100 years, the idea of water waves has been a resource of fascinating and sometimes tough mathematical difficulties. almost each classical mathematical process looks someplace inside of its confines. starting with the creation of the perfect equations of fluid mechanics, the outlet chapters of this article ponder the classical difficulties in linear and nonlinear water-wave thought. This units the degree for a research of extra sleek features, difficulties that provide upward thrust to soliton-type equations. The publication closes with an creation to the results of viscosity. all of the mathematical advancements are awarded within the most simple demeanour, with labored examples and easy situations conscientiously defined. workouts, extra examining, and historic notes on many of the vital characters within the box around off the e-book and make this a terrific textual content for a starting graduate direction on water waves.

Advanced Thermodynamics for Engineers

By Desmond E. Winterbone

Even supposing the elemental theories of thermodynamics are accurately coated by way of a couple of latest texts, there's little literature that addresses extra complex themes. during this finished paintings the writer redresses this stability, drawing on his twenty-five years of expertise of training thermodynamics at undergraduate and postgraduate point, to provide a definitive textual content to hide completely, complicated syllabuses.

The e-book introduces the fundamental ideas which observe over the complete variety of recent applied sciences, contemplating: a brand new method of cycles, permitting their irreversibility to be taken under consideration; an in depth examine of combustion to teach how the chemical strength in a gasoline is switched over into thermal strength and emissions; an research of gasoline cells to offer an figuring out of the direct conversion of chemical power to electrical energy; a close examine of estate relationships to let extra refined analyses to be made from either low and high temperature plant and irreversible thermodynamics, whose rules may perhaps carry a key to new methods of successfully protecting strength to energy (e.g. solar power, gas cells). labored examples are incorporated in lots of the chapters, by means of routines with recommendations. through constructing thermodynamics from an explicitly equilibrium standpoint, exhibiting how all platforms try and succeed in a nation of equilibrium, and the results of those structures after they can't, the result's an remarkable perception into the extra complicated issues whilst changing any type of power into strength, that may turn out necessary to scholars engineers of all disciplines.
