Group Theory in Physics by Wu-Ki Tung

By Wu-Ki Tung

An introductory textual content ebook for graduates and complicated undergraduates on workforce illustration thought. It emphasizes crew theory's position because the mathematical framework for describing symmetry homes of classical and quantum mechanical systems.
Familiarity with simple team innovations and methods is valuable within the schooling of a modern day physicist. This publication emphasizes common positive aspects and techniques which exhibit the ability of the group-theoretical technique in exposing the systematics of actual platforms with linked symmetry.
Particular awareness is given to pedagogy. In constructing the speculation, readability in offering the most rules and effects is given an identical precedence as comprehensiveness and strict rigor. to maintain the integrity of the maths, sufficient technical details is incorporated within the appendices to make the publication nearly self-contained.
A set of difficulties and recommendations has been released in a separate publication.

Averaging methods in nonlinear dynamical systems by Jan A. Sanders, Ferdinand Verhulst, James Murdock

By Jan A. Sanders, Ferdinand Verhulst, James Murdock

Perturbation conception and particularly general shape thought has proven powerful development in contemporary many years. This ebook is a drastic revision of the 1st variation of the averaging publication. The up-to-date chapters characterize new insights in averaging, particularly its relation with dynamical platforms and the speculation of standard kinds. additionally new are survey appendices on invariant manifolds. the most notable gains of the booklet is the gathering of examples, which diversity from the extremely simple to a few which are difficult, practical, and of substantial sensible value. so much of them are awarded in cautious aspect and are illustrated with illuminating diagrams.

Airy functions and applications in physics by Olivier Vallée

By Olivier Vallée

Using designated capabilities, and specifically ethereal features, is quite universal in physics. the explanation could be present in the necessity, or even within the necessity, to precise a actual phenomenon by way of an efficient and finished analytical shape for the full clinical group. even though, for the previous two decades, many actual difficulties were resolved via desktops. This pattern is now turning into the norm because the value of desktops keeps to develop. As a final hotel, the designated services hired in physics must be calculated numerically, whether the analytic formula of physics is of fundamental value.

Airy capabilities have periodically been the topic of many overview articles, yet no noteworthy compilation in this topic has been released because the Nineteen Fifties. during this paintings, we offer an exhaustive compilation of the present wisdom at the analytical houses of ethereal capabilities, constructing with care the calculus implying the ethereal capabilities.

The publication is split into 2 elements: the 1st is dedicated to the mathematical houses of ethereal capabilities, while the second one provides a few functions of ethereal features to numerous fields of physics. The examples supplied succinctly illustrate using ethereal services in classical and quantum physics.

Geometrical theory of dynamical systems and fluid flows by Kambe Tsutomu

By Kambe Tsutomu

This can be an introductory textbook at the geometrical conception of dynamical structures, fluid flows and likely integrable structures. the themes are interdisciplinary and expand from arithmetic, mechanics and physics to mechanical engineering, and the process is especially basic. the most subject matter of this e-book is a unified formula to appreciate dynamical evolutions of actual platforms inside of mathematical rules of Riemannian geometry and Lie teams through the use of famous examples. Underlying mathematical strategies contain transformation invariance, covariant spinoff, geodesic equation and curvature tensors at the foundation of differential geometry, thought of Lie teams and integrability. those mathematical theories are utilized to actual structures comparable to unfastened rotation of a best, floor wave of shallow water, motion precept in mechanics, diffeomorphic move of fluids, vortex motions and a few integrable platforms. within the most recent variation, a brand new formula of fluid flows is additionally awarded in a unified style at the foundation of the gauge precept of theoretical physics and precept of least motion in addition to new kind of Lagrangians. loads of attempt has been directed towards making the outline trouble-free, transparent and concise, to supply rookies easy accessibility to the themes.

Modeling by Nonlinear Differential Equations: Dissipative by Paul E. Phillipson

By Paul E. Phillipson

This booklet goals to supply mathematical analyses of nonlinear differential equations, that have proved pivotal to knowing many phenomena in physics, chemistry and biology. subject matters of concentration are nonlinear oscillations, deterministic chaos, solitons, reaction-diffusion-driven chemical development formation, neuron dynamics, autocatalysis and molecular evolution. integrated is a dialogue of procedures from the vantage of reversibility, mirrored through conservative classical mechanics, and irreversibility brought through the dissipative position of diffusion. each one bankruptcy provides the subject material from the purpose of 1 or a number of key equations, whose homes and results are amplified via approximate analytic options which are built to aid graphical show of tangible laptop options

Introduction to Chaos in Nonequilibrium Statistical by J. R. Dorfman

By J. R. Dorfman

This booklet offers an creation to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics utilized to rules in chaotic dynamics. the writer illustrates how ideas in statistical mechanics can be utilized to calculate amounts which are necessary to figuring out the chaotic habit of fluid structures. starting with very important historical past info, the amount is going directly to introduce simple techniques of dynamical platforms thought via easy examples sooner than explaining complicated themes comparable to SRB and Gibbs measures. it will likely be of serious curiosity to graduate scholars and researchers in condensed subject physics, nonlinear technological know-how, theoretical physics, arithmetic, and theoretical chemistry

Mathematical Models for Eddy Currents and Magnetostatics: by Rachid Touzani, Jacques Rappaz (auth.)

By Rachid Touzani, Jacques Rappaz (auth.)

This monograph addresses primary features of mathematical modeling and numerical resolution tools of electromagnetic difficulties concerning low frequencies, i.e. magnetostatic and eddy present difficulties that are not often awarded within the utilized arithmetic literature. within the first half, the authors introduce the mathematical versions in a practical context in view in their use for commercial purposes. numerous geometric configurations of electrical conductors resulting in varied mathematical types are conscientiously derived and analyzed, and numerical tools for the answer of the received difficulties are given. comparable matters similar to convergence of the approximations and blunder estimates are mentioned. the second one a part of the monograph offers a number of coupled difficulties that contain eddy present or magnetostatic difficulties, particularly magneto-hydrodynamic difficulties and magnetic shaping difficulties in regards to the soften stream of electrically carrying out metals, induction heating approaches, inductively coupled plasmas and ferromagnetic screening modeling. The presentation of every version comes with numerical representation from business applications.
