Most widely held works by Alberto Bressan
Hyperbolic systems of balance laws : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Cetraro, Italy, July 14-21, 2003 by Alberto Bressan( Book )

21 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present Cime volume includes 4 lecture courses by Bressan, Serre, Zumbrun and Williams and a Tutorial by Bressan on the Center Manifold Theorem. Bressan??'s notes start with an extensive review of hyperbolic conservation laws. Then he introduces the vanishing viscosity approach and explains clearly the building blocks of the theory in particular the crucial role of the decomposition by travelling waves. Serre focuses on existence and stability for discrete shock profiles, he reviews the existence both in the rational than in the irrational cases and gives a concise introduction to the use
Hyperbolic systems of conservation laws : the one-dimensional Cauchy problem by Alberto Bressan( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alberto Bressan offers a self-contained introduction to the mathematical theory of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, with particular emphasis on the study of discontinuous solutions, characterized by the appearance of shock waves

Modelling and optimisation of flows on networks : Cetraro, Italy 2009 by Luigi Ambrosio( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years flows in networks have attracted the interest of many researchers from different areas, e.g. applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists, economists. The main reason for this ubiquity is the wide and diverse range of applications, such as vehicular traffic, supply chains, blood flow, irrigation channels, data networks and others. This book presents an extensive set of notes by world leaders on the main mathematical techniques used to address such problems, together with investigations into specific applications. The main focus is on partial differential equations in networks, but ordinary differential equations and optimal transport are also included. Moreover, the modeling is completed by analysis, numerics, control and optimization of flows in networks

Nonlinear conservation laws and applications by Alberto Bressan( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of the Summer Program on Nonlinear Conservation Laws and Applications held at the IMA on July 130-31, 2009. Hyperbolic conservation laws is a classical subject, which has experienced vigorous growth in recent years. The present collection provides a timely survey of the state of the art in this exciting field, and a comprehensive outlook on open problems. Contributions of more theoretical nature cover the following topics: global existence and uniqueness theory of one-dimensional systems, multidimensional conservation laws in several space variables and approximations of their solutions, mathematical analysis of fluid motion, stability and dynamics of viscous shock waves, singular limits for viscous systems, basic principles in the modeling of turbulent mixing, transonic flows past an obstacle and a fluid dynamic approach for isometric embedding in geometry, models of nonlinear elasticity, the Monge problem, and transport equations with rough coefficients. In addition, there are a number of papers devoted to applications. These include: models of blood flow, self-gravitating compressible fluids, granular flow, charge transport in fluids, and the modeling and control of traffic flow on networks

Global Solutions for the One-Dimensional Equations of a Viscous Reactive Gas by Aldo Bressan( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The behavior of a confined, heat-conductive, viscous, and chemically reactive gas is described by a system of partial differential equations which is of hyperbolic-parabolic type and is highly nonlinear. This paper proves the existence of a unique solution, global in time, for the corresponding initial-boundary value problem. The proof combines a local existence theorem with global a priori bounds on the solutions, and relies on a preliminary estimate for the total free energy of the system. From a physical point of view, these results show that the heat conductivity and the viscosity of the gas prevent shocks from developing, at all positive times, for arbitrarily large Lipschitz continuous initial data
The Generic Local Time-Optimal Stabilizing Controls in Dimension 3 by Mathematics Research Center (United States. Army)( Book )

CONTROL PROBLEMS IN INFECTIOUS DISEASE MANAGEMENT by Dongmei Zhang( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation presents applications of mathematical control theory to better under- stand and prevent infectious disease transmission in epidemiology. Control of structured epidemic models with age heterogeneity and spatial heterogeneity are formulated and an- alyzed separately. Age structured model is crucial for disease transmission such as HIV. We introduce continuous age structure in both course of infection of individuals and the transmission rate in the population. Not only we analyzed the disease transmission under such detailed age-structured model, we further applied game theory to identify the ratio- nal behavior accordingly. Notice that disease often spread into population form a disease reservoir nearby, we also researched a simplified spatial model in one dimension regarding how to control disease from spreading into nearby community. In both age and spatially structured model, we provide mathematical analysis of the existence and derived necessary conditions of the possible optimal strategy. Numerical simulations are also included to show ways to calculate the optimal strategy. In order to fundamentally prevent the disease spread from disease reservoir to the community nearby, we further investigate the controllability problems of the disease reservoir in two dimension, including the confinment and steering problems. The asymptotic shape of the reachable set are also analyzed
