The Fermi-Pasta-Ulam problem a status report by Giovanni Gallavotti ( )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The apparent contradiction of the results of the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam experiment conducted in 1953 and 1954 with the hypothesis that essentially any nonlinearity would lead to a system exhibiting ergodic behaviour has become known as the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam Problem. This volume reviews the current understanding of this paradox without trying to force coherence on differing perspectives on the same problem by various groups or approaches. The contributions comprise studies of one-dimensional chains, descriptions of numerical methods, heuristic theories, addressing the ???long standing and controversia

Foundations of fluid dynamics by Giovanni Gallavotti ( Book )
20 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This monograph on fluid mechanics is not only a superb and unique textbook but also an impressive piece of research. The author writes from the vantage point of a mathematical physicist: Having in mind the important applications and approximation techniques used in physics and engineering, he carefully analyses the power of the theory. He examines, among others, the theories of Leray, Ruelle and Takens, and discusses Lorenz's ideas of attractors. This is the only textbook that fully covers turbulence, all the way from the works of Kolmogorov to modern dynamics. This 2nd corrected printing has been thoroughly revised with many changes to improve readability

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nonlinear evolution and chaotic phenomena by Giovanni Gallavotti ( Book )
12 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aspects of ergodic, qualitative, and statistical theory of motion by Giovanni Gallavotti ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and German and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Intended for beginners in ergodic theory, this book addresses students as well as researchers in mathematical physics. The main novelty is the systematic treatment of characteristic problems in ergodic theory by a unified method in terms of convergent power series and renormalization group methods, in particular. Basic concepts of ergodicity, like Gibbs states, are developed and applied to, e.g., Asonov systems or KAM theory. Many examples illustrate the ideas and, in addition, a substantial number of interesting topics are treated in the form of guided problems
