Statistical mechanics : a short treatise by Giovanni Gallavotti( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a critical and modern analysis of the conceptual foundations of statistical mechanics as laid down in Boltzmann's works. The author emphasizes the relation between microscopic reversibility and macroscopic irreversibility. Students will find a clear and detailed explanation of fundamental concepts such as equipartition, entropy, and ergodicity. They will learn about Brownian motion, the modern treatment of the thermodynamic limit phase transitions, the microscopic and macroscopic theory of the coexistence of phases, statistical mechanics of stationary states, and fluctuations and dissipation in chaotic motions
Foundations of fluid dynamics by Giovanni Gallavotti( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 310 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

Aspects of ergodic, qualitative, and statistical theory of motion by Giovanni Gallavotti( Book )

16 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 171 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
The Fermi-Pasta-Ulam problem : a status report by Giovanni Gallavotti( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 128 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

Nonequilibrium and irreversibility by Giovanni Gallavotti( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book concentrates on the properties of the stationary states in chaotic systems of particles or fluids, leaving aside the theory of the way they can be reached. The stationary states of particles or of fluids (understood as probability distributions on microscopic configurations or on the fields describing continua) have received important new ideas and data from numerical simulations and reviews are needed. The starting point is to find out which time invariant distributions come into play in physics. A special feature of this book is the historical approach. To identify the problems the

Mathematical foundation of turbulent viscous flows : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. summer school held in Martina Franca, Italy, September 1-5, 2003 by M Cannone( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five leading specialists reflect on different and complementary approaches to fundamental questions in the study of the Fluid Mechanics and Gas Dynamics equations. Constantin presents the Euler equations of ideal incompressible fluids and discusses the blow-up problem for the Navier-Stokes equations of viscous fluids, describing some of the major mathematical questions of turbulence theory. These questions are connected to the Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg theory of singularities for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations that is explained in Gallavotti's lectures. Kazhikhov introduces the theory of strong approximation of weak limits via the method of averaging, applied to Navier-Stokes equations. Y. Meyer focuses on several nonlinear evolution equations - in particular Navier-Stokes - and some related unexpected cancellation properties, either imposed on the initial condition, or satisfied by the solution itself, whenever it is localized in space or in time variable. Ukai presents the asymptotic analysis theory of fluid equations. He discusses the Cauchy-Kovalevskaya technique for the Boltzmann-Grad limit of the Newtonian equation, the multi-scale analysis, giving the compressible and incompressible limits of the Boltzmann equation, and the analysis of their initial layers
Mathematical physics electronic journal( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this journal (http://www.ma.utexas.edu/mpej/) is to publish papers in mathematical physics and related areas that are of the highest quality. Research papers and review articles are selected through the normal refereeing process, overseen by an editorial board. The research subjects are primarily on mathematical physics; but this should not be interpreted as a limitation, as the editors feel that essentially all subjects of mathematics and physics are in principle relevant to mathematical physics
