Vorticity and incompressible flow by Andrew Majda ( )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a comprehensive introduction to the mathematical theory of vorticity and incompressible flow ranging from elementary introductory material to current research topics. While the contents center on mathematical theory, many parts of the book showcase the interaction between rigorous mathematical theory, numerical, asymptotic, and qualitative simplified modeling, and physical phenomena. The first half forms an introductory graduate course on vorticity and incompressible flow. The second half comprises a modern applied mathematics graduate course on the weak solution theory for incompressible flow
Selected papers by Peter D Lax ( )
20 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A renowned mathematician who considers himself both applied and theoretical in his approach, Peter Lax has spent most of his professional career at NYU, making significant contributions to both mathematics and computing. He has written several important published works and has received numerous honours including the National Medal of Science, the Lester R. Ford Award, the Chauvenet Prize, the Semmelweis Medal, the Wiener Prize, and the Wolf Prize. Several students he has mentored have become leaders in their fields. These two volumes span the years from 1952 up until 1999, and cover many varying topics, from functional analysis, partial differential equations, and numerical methods to conservation laws, integrable systems and scattering theory. After each paper, or collection of papers, is a commentary placing the paper in context and where relevant discussing more recent developments. Many of the papers in these volumes have become classics and should be read by any serious student of these topics. In terms of insight, depth, and breadth, Lax has few equals. The reader of this selection will quickly appreciate his brilliance as well as his masterful touch. Having this collection of papers in one place allows one to follow the evolution of his ideas and mathematical interests and to appreciate how many of these papers initiated topics that developed lives of their own
Non-linear dynamics and statistical theories for basic geophysical flows by Andrew Majda ( )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geophysical fluid dynamics illustrates the rich interplay between mathematical analysis, nonlinear dynamics, statistical theories, qualitative models and numerical simulations. This self-contained introduction will suit a multi-disciplinary audience ranging from beginning graduate students to senior researchers. It is the first book following this approach and contains many recent ideas and results
Compressible fluid flow and systems of conservation laws in several space variables by Andrew Majda ( Book )
11 editions published between 1984 and 2006 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wave motion : theory, modelling, and computation : proceedings of a conference in honor of the 60th birthday of Peter D. Lax by Alexandre Joel Chorin ( Book )
11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 60th birthday of Peter Lax was celebrated at Berkeley by a conference entitled Wave Motion: theory, application and computation held at the mathematical Sciences Research Institute, June 9-12, 1986. Peter Lax has made profound and essential contributions to the topics described by the title of the conference, and has also contributed in important ways to many other mathematical subjects, and as a result this conference volume dedicated to him includes research work on a variety of topics, not all clearly related to its title
The stability of multi-dimensional shock fronts by Andrew Majda ( Book )
9 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction to PDEs and waves for the atmosphere and ocean by Andrew Majda ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The existence of multi-dimensional shock fronts by Andrew Majda ( Book )
3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Multidimensional hyperbolic problems and computations by James Glimm ( Book )
9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is the proceedings of a two week workshop on multidimensional hyperbolic problems held during April 1989. The twenty-six papers in this volume emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research in this field involving combinations of ideas from the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations, asymptotic methods, numerical computation and experiments. This volume includes several expository papers on asymptotic methods such as nonlinear geometric optics, a number of articles applying numerical algorithms such as higher order Godunov methods and front tracking to physical problems along with comparison to experimental data, and also several interesting papers on the rigorous mathematical theory of shock waves. In addition, there are two papers in the book devoted to open problems with this interdisciplinary emphasis. This book should be very interesting for any researcher pursuing modern developments in the theory and applications of hyperbolic conservation laws
Computational fluid dynamics and reacting gas flows by Björn Engquist ( Book )
4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains papers presented at the workshop on Computational Fluid Dynamics and Reacting Gas Flows held at the Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications during September, 1986. Computational fluid dynamics has become a research area of central importance to mathematics, science, and technology. It is a subject which brings together applied mathematics and numerical analysis to solve problems in fluid dynamics. Included in this volume is the description of new algorithms which can make possible the discovery of important new scientific phenomena and the development of new technological processes. This volume will be of interest to mathematicians, scientists, and engineers who are interested in the current research of international leaders in numerical analysis and scientific computing
Filtering complex turbulent systems by Andrew Majda ( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors develop a systematic applied mathematics perspective on the problems associated with filtering complex turbulent systems
Information theory and stochastics for multiscale nonlinear systems by Andrew Majda ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book introduces mathematicians to the emerging mathematical interplay between ideas from stochastics and information theory and important practical issues in studying complex multiscale nonlinear systems. It emphasizes the serendipity between modern applied mathematics and applications where rigorous analysis, the development of qualitative and/or asymptotic models, and numerical modeling all interact to explain complex phenomena."--BOOK JACKET
