Alberto Bressan(
)
24 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 655 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

Nonlinear conservation laws and applications by
Alberto Bressan(
)
12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 449 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 13031, 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 onedimensional 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, selfgravitating compressible fluids, granular flow, charge transport in fluids, and the modeling and control of traffic flow on networks

Modelling and optimisation of flows on networks : Cetraro, Italy 2009 by
Luigi Ambrosio(
Book
)
10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 125 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. The book will be a valuable resource for every researcher or student interested in the subject

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 agestructured 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

Global Solutions for the OneDimensional Equations of a Viscous Reactive Gas by
Mathematics Research Center (United States. Army)(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The behavior of a confined, heatconductive, viscous, and chemically reactive gas is described by a system of partial differential equations which is of hyperbolicparabolic type and is highly nonlinear. This paper proves the existence of a unique solution, global in time, for the corresponding initialboundary 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
