It is a subject which brings together applied mathematics and numerical analysis to solve problems in fluid dynamics. Included in this volume is the description of new algorithms which can make possible the discovery of important new scientific phenomena and the development of new technological processes. This volume will be of interest to mathematicians, scientists, and engineers who are interested in the current research of international leaders in numerical analysis and scientific computing
Q-Series and partitions by Dennis Stanton( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of the workshop held for the Applied Combinatorics program in March, 1988. The central idea of the workshop is the recent interplay of the classical analysis of q-series, and the combinatorial analysis of partitions of intergers. Many related topics are discussed, including orthogonal polynomials, the Macdonald conjectures for root systems, and related integrals. Those people interested in combinatorial enumeration and special functions will find this volume of interest. Recent applications of q-series (and related functions) to exactly solvable statistical mechanics models and to statistics makes this volume of interest to non-specialists. Included are several expository papers, and a series of papers on new work on the unimodality of the q-binomial coefficient
Two phase flows and waves by Daniel D Joseph( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Workshop, held from January 3-10, 1989 at IMA, focused on the properties of materials which consist of many small particles or grains. These include granular materials, in which the particles interact through direct contact, and suspensions or two phase materials, in which particles interact through the influence of the surrounding viscous fluids. Such materials are important in many industrial and geological applications, especially fluidized beds. This volume contains ad vanced scientific papers in this rapidly developing subject by authors from several different disciplines (e.g., engineering, physics, mathematics). Some papers attempt to derive continuum constitutive behavior from micromechanics. Others analyze theoretically or solve numerically the partial differential equations which result when an ad hoc constitutive law is assumed. Experimental phenomena exhibited by such materials are reported in other papers. Still other consider the application to fluidized beds

Microlocal analysis and nonlinear waves by Michael Beals( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The behavior of linear hyperbolic waves has been analyzed by decomposing the waves into pieces in space-time and into different frequencies. The linear nature of the equations involved allows the reassembling of the pieces in a simple fashion; the individual pieces do not interact. For nonlinear waves the interaction of the pieces seemed to preclude such an analysis, but in the late 1970s it was shown that a similar procedure could be undertaken in this case and would yield important information. The analysis of the decomposed waves, and of waves with special smoothness or size in certain directions, has been fruitful in describing a variety of the properties of nonlinear waves. This volume presents a number of articles on topics of current interest which involves the use of the newer techniques on nonlinear waves. The results established include descriptions of the smoothness of such waves as determined by their geometry, the properties of solutions with high frequency oscillations, and the long-time smoothness and size estimates satisfied by nonlinear waves
Multidimensional hyperbolic problems and computations by James Glimm( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the proceedings of a two week workshop on multidimensional hyperbolic problems held during April 1989. The twenty-six papers in this volume emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research in this field involving combinations of ideas from the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations, asymptotic methods, numerical computation and experiments. This volume includes several expository papers on asymptotic methods such as nonlinear geometric optics, a number of articles applying numerical algorithms such as higher order Godunov methods and front tracking to physical problems along with comparison to experimental data, and also several interesting papers on the rigorous mathematical theory of shock waves. In addition, there are two papers in the book devoted to open problems with this interdisciplinary emphasis. This book should be very interesting for any researcher pursuing modern developments in the theory and applications of hyperbolic conservation laws

The IMA Volumes are intended to involve the broader scientific community in this process
Metastability and incompletely posed problems by S. S Antman( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications Metastability and Incompletely Posed Problems represents the proceedings of a workshop which was an integral part of the 19R4-R5 IMA program on CONTINUUM PHYSICS AND PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EOIIATIONS. We are grateful to the Scientific Committee:, I.L. Eri cksen D. Kinderlehrer H. Rrezis C. Dafermos for their dedication and hard work in developing an imaginative, stimulating, and productive year-long program. George R. Sell Hans Weinberger Preface Most equilibrium events in nature do not realize configurations of minimum energy. They are only metastable. Available knowledge of constitutive relations and environmental interactions may be limiterl. As a result, many configurations may he compatible with the rlata. Such questions are incompletely poserl. The papers in this volume address a wide variety of these issues as they are perceived by the material scientist and the mathematician. They represent a portion of the significant activity which has been underway in recent years, from the experimental arena and physical theory to the analysis of differential equations and computation
Patterns and dynamics in reactive media by Rutherford Aris( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since the seminal works on traveling waves and morphogenesis by Fisher, by Kolmogorov, Petrovski and Piscunov, and by Turing, scientists from many disciplines have been fascinated by questions concerning the formation of steady or dynamic patterns in reactive media. Contributions to this volume have been made by chemists, chemical engineers, mathematicians (both pure and applied), and physicists. The topics covered range from reports of experimental studies, through descriptions of numerical experiments, to rather abstract theoretical investigations, each exhibiting different aspects of a very diverse field
