A mathematical introduction to fluid mechanics by Alexandre Joel Chorin( Book )

55 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematics is playing an ever more important role in the physical and biological sciences, provoking a blurring of boundaries between scientific disciplines and a resurgence of interest in the modern as well as the classical techniques of applied mathematics. This renewal of interest, both in research and teaching, has led to the establishment of the series: Texts in Applied Mathematics (TAM). The development of new courses is a natural consequence of a high Ievel of excitement on the research frontier as newer techniques, such as numerical and symbolic computer systems, dynamical systems, and chaos, mix with and reinforce the traditional methods of applied mathematics. Thus, the purpose of this textbook series is to meet the current and future needs of these advances and encourage the teaching of new courses. TAM will publish textbooks suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses, and will complement the Applied Mathematical Sciences (AMS) series, which will focus on advanced textbooks and research Ievel monographs. Preface This book is based on a one-term course in fluid mechanics originally taught in the Department of Mathematics of the University of California, Berkeley, during the spring of 1978. The goal of the course was not to provide an exhaustive account of fluid mechanics, nor to assess the engineering value of various approximation procedures

Introduction to mechanics and symmetry : a basic exposition of classical mechanical systems by Jerrold E Marsden( Book )

46 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and German and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Symmetry has always played an important role in mechanics, from fundamental formulations of basic principles to concrete applications. The theme of the book is to develop the basic theory and applications of mechanics with an emphasis on the role of symmetry. In recent times, the interest in mechanics, and in symmetry techniques in particular, has accelerated because of developments in dynamical systems, the use of geometric methods and new applications to integrable and chaotic systems, control systems, stability, and bifurcation, and the study of specific rigid, fluid, plasma, and elastic systems. Introduction to Mechanics and Symmetry lays the basic foundation for these topics and includes numerous applications, making it beneficial to physicists and engineers. This text has specific examples and applications showing how the theory works, and up-to-date techniques, all of which make it accessible to a wide variety of readers, especially senior undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, physics, and engineering."--Jacket
Calculus I by Jerrold E Marsden( Book )

53 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in English and French and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this text is to help students learn to use calculus intelligently for solving a wide variety of mathematical and physical problems. This book is an outgrowth of our teaching of calculus at Berkeley, and the present edition incorporates many improvements based on our use of the first edition. We list below some of the key features of the book. Examples and Exercises The exercise sets have been carefully constructed to be of maximum use to the students. With few exceptions we adhere to the following policies. - The section exercises are graded into three consecutive groups: (a) The first exercises are routine, modelled almost exactly on the exam ples; these are intended to give students confidence. (b) Next come exercises that are still based directly on the examples and text but which may have variations of wording or which combine different ideas; these are intended to train students to think for themselves. (c) The last exercises in each set are difficult. These are marked with a star (*) and some will challenge even the best students. Difficult does not necessarily mean theoretical; often a starred problem is an interesting application that requires insight into what calculus is really about. - The exercises come in groups of two and often four similar ones
The Hopf bifurcation and its applications by Jerrold E Marsden( Book )

26 editions published between 1976 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of these notes is to give a reasonahly com plete, although not exhaustive, discussion of what is commonly referred to as the Hopf bifurcation with applications to spe cific problems, including stability calculations. Historical ly, the subject had its origins in the works of Poincare [1] around 1892 and was extensively discussed by Andronov and Witt [1] and their co-workers starting around 1930. Hopf's basic paper [1] appeared in 1942. Although the term "Poincare Andronov-Hopf bifurcation" is more accurate (sometimes Friedrichs is also included), the name "Hopf Bifurcation" seems more common, so we have used it. Hopf's crucial contribution was the extension from two dimensions to higher dimensions. The principal technique employed in the body of the text is that of invariant manifolds. The method of Ruelle Takens [1] is followed, with details, examples and proofs added. Several parts of the exposition in the main text come from papers of P. Chernoff, J. Dorroh, O. Lanford and F. Weissler to whom we are grateful. The general method of invariant manifolds is common in dynamical systems and in ordinary differential equations: see for example, Hale [1,2] and Hartman [1]. Of course, other methods are also available. In an attempt to keep the picture balanced, we have included samples of alternative approaches. Specifically, we have included a translation (by L. Howard and N. Kopell) of Hopf's original (and generally unavailable) paper

Hamiltonian reduction by stages by Jerrold E Marsden( Book )

18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume readers will find for the first time a detailed account of the theory of symplectic reduction by stages, along with numerous illustrations of the theory. Special emphasis is given to group extensions, including a detailed discussion of the Euclidean group, the oscillator group, the Bott-Virasoro group and other groups of matrices. Ample background theory on symplectic reduction and cotangent bundle reduction in particular is provided. Novel features of the book are the inclusion of a systematic treatment of the cotangent bundle case, including the identification of cocycles with magnetic terms, as well as the general theory of singular reduction by stages

"Intended for graduate students and working mathematicians in symplectic and Poisson geometry as well as mechanics, this text is a distillation of prominent research and an indication of the future trends and directions in geometry, mechanics, and mathematical physics."--Jacket
Geometry, mechanics, and dynamics : volume in honor of the 60th birthday of J.E. Marsden( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume aims to acknowledge J.E. Marsden's influence as a teacher, propagator of new ideas, and mentor of young talent. It presents both survey articles and research articles in the fields that represent the main themes of his work, including elesticity and analysis, fluid mechanics, dynamical systems theory, geometric mechanics, geometric control theory, and relativity and quantum mechanics. The common thread throughout is the use of geometric methods that serve to unify diverse disciplines and bring a wide variety of scientists and mathematicians together in a way that enhances dialogue and encourages cooperation. This book may serve as a guide to rapidly evolving areas as well as a resource both for students who want to work in one of these fields and practitioners who seek a broader view
