Baseline climatic and hydrologic relationships for the High Ridge evaluation area by W. B Fowler( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study area, called the High Ridge evaluation area, is located in the Blue Mountains 22 km. northwest of Elgin and consists of four watersheds ranging between 24 and 118 hectares in size. The study's purpose is to identify the pretreatment conditions of hydrologic behavior in determining effects of management practices. Data collected: precipitation; snow depth and density; streamflow; air, soil, and water temperatures; and speed and direction of wind
Applied mathematics : body and soul by K Eriksson( Book )

46 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applied Mathematics: Body & Soul is a mathematics education reform project developed at Chalmers University of Technology and includes a series of volumes and software. The program is motivated by the computer revolution opening new possibilities of computational mathematical modeling in mathematics, science and engineering. It consists of a synthesis of Mathematical Analysis (Soul), Numerical Computation (Body) and Application. Volumes I-III present a modern version of Calculus and Linear Algebra, including constructive/numerical techniques and applications intended for undergraduate programs in engineering and science. Further volumes present topics such as Dynamical Systems, Fluid Dynamics, Solid Mechanics and Electro-Magnetics on an advanced undergraduate/graduate level. The authors are leading researchers in Computational Mathematics who have written various successful books
Angewandte Mathematik: Body and Soul by K Eriksson( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in German and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Angewandte Mathematik: Body & Soul ist ein neuer Grundkurs in der Mathematikausbildung für Uni-Anfänger in den Naturwissenschaften, der Technik, und der Mathematik, dervon der Chalmers University of Technology entwickelt wurde. Er besteht aus mehreren BuchbBänden sowie Computer-Software. Die Motivation des Projekts ist begründet in der Computerrevolution, die ihrerseits völlig neue Möglichkeiten des wissenschaftlichen Rechnens in der Mathematik, den Naturwissenschaften und im Ingenieurwesen eröffnet hat. Es besteht aus einer Synthese der mathematischen Analysis (Soul) mit der numerischen Berechnung (Body) sowie den Anwendungen. Die Bände I-III geben eine moderne Version der Analysis und der linearen Algebra wieder, einschließlich konstruktiver/numerischer Techniken und Anwendungen, zugeschnitten auf Anfängerprogramme im Maschinenbau und den Naturwissenschaften. Weitere Bände behandeln Themen wie z.B. dynamische Systeme, Strömungsdynamik, Festkörpermechanik und Elektromagnetismus. Dieser Band behandelt die Grundlagen der Analysis, beginnend mit dem Aufbau der natürlichen, rationalen, realen und komplexen Zahlen und führt weiter zur analytischen Geometrie im zwei- und drei-dimensionalen Raumsowie Lipschitz Funktionen und Ableitungen, jeweils mit einer Fülle von Anwendungen. Die Autoren sind führende Experten im wissenschaftlichen Rechnen und haben schon einige erfolgreiche Bücher geschrieben. Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter http://www.phi.chalmers.se/bodysoul

Computational turbulent incompressible flow by Johan Hoffman( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Volume 4 of the book series of the Body & Soul mathematics education reform program, and presents a unified new approach to computational simulation of turbulentflow starting from the general basis of calculus and linear algebra of Vol 1-3. The book puts the Body & Soul computational finite element methodology in the form of General Galerkin (G2), up against the challenge of computing turbulent solutions of the inviscid Euler equations and the Navier-Stokes equations with small viscosity. The book shows that direct application of G2 without any turbulence or wall modeling, allows reliable computation on a PC of mean value quantities of turbulent flow such as drag and lift. The power of G2 is demonstrated by resolving several classical scientific paradoxes of fluid flow and by uncovering secrets of flying, sailing, racing and ball sports. The book presents new aspects on both mathematics and computation of turbulent flow, and challenges established approaches. The book is directed to a wide audience of computational mathematicians fluid dynamicists and scientists. The G2 solver is available as part the free software project FEniCS at www.fenics.org. The book has a dedicated dynamic web page, including movies from a wide variety of simulations, at www.bodysoulmath.org. The book is focussed on incompressible flow, but opens to compressible flow continued in Vol 5 on thermodynamics. The authors are experts on computational mathematics and technology

Advanced numerical approximation of nonlinear hyperbolic equations : lectures given at the 2nd session of the Centro Internazionale Matematico Estivo (C.I.M.E.) held in Cetraro, Italy, June 23-28, 1997 by Alfio Quarteroni( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the texts of the four series of lectures presented by B.Cockburn, C.Johnson, C.W. Shu and E.Tadmor at a C.I.M.E. Summer School. It is aimed at providing a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of numerical methods which are nowadays used to solve nonlinear partial differential equations of hyperbolic type, developing shock discontinuities. The most effective methodologies in the framework of finite elements, finite differences, finite volumes spectral methods and kinetic methods, are addressed, in particular high-order shock capturing techniques, discontinuous Galerkin methods, adaptive techniques based upon a-posteriori error analysis
