Burgers-KPZ turbulence : Göttingen lectures by W. A Woyczyński( Book )

23 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These lecture notes are woven around the subject of Burgers' turbulence/KPZ model of interface growth, a study of the nonlinear parabolic equation with random initial data. The analysis is conducted mostly in the space-time domain, with less attention paid to the frequency-domain picture. However, the bibliography contains a more complete information about other directions in the field which over the last decade enjoyed a vigorous expansion. The notes are addressed to a diverse audience, including mathematicians, statisticians, physicists, fluid dynamicists and engineers, and contain both rigorous and heuristic arguments. Because of the multidisciplinary audience, the notes also include a concise exposition of some classical topics in probability theory, such as Brownian motion, Wiener polynomial chaos, etc

Introductory statistics and random phenomena : uncertainty, complexity, and chaotic behavior in engineering and science by Manfred Denker( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present book is based on a course developed as partofthe large NSF-funded GatewayCoalitionInitiativeinEngineeringEducationwhichincludedCaseWest ern Reserve University, Columbia University, Cooper Union, Drexel University, Florida International University, New Jersey Institute ofTechnology, Ohio State University, University ofPennsylvania, Polytechnic University, and Universityof South Carolina. The Coalition aimed to restructure the engineering curriculum by incorporating the latest technological innovations and tried to attract more and betterstudents to engineering and science. Draftsofthis textbookhave been used since 1992instatisticscoursestaughtatCWRU, IndianaUniversity, Bloomington, and at the universities in Gottingen, Germany, and Grenoble, France. Another purpose of this project was to develop a courseware that would take advantage ofthe Electronic Learning Environment created by CWRUnet-the all fiber-optic Case Western Reserve University computer network, and its ability to let students run Mathematica experiments and projects in their dormitory rooms, and interactpaperlessly with the instructor. Theoretically, onecould try togothroughthisbook withoutdoing Mathematica experimentsonthecomputer, butitwouldbelikeplayingChopin's Piano Concerto in E-minor, or Pink Floyd's The Wall, on an accordion.

Nonlinear stochastic PDE's : hydrodynamic limit and Burgers' turbulence( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Italian and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a based on recent research which focuses on the area of nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations. The first section contains work on fundamental problems of hydrodynamic limit for particle systems and on random media. The second part groups together papers under the umbrella of the name "Burgers' turbulence", although a broader spectrum of stochastic problem for the Burgers' equation is actually addressed. Finally, the last part deals with the stochastic Navier-Stokes equation both from mathematical and physical perspective. This book is suitable for mathematicians and students
Stochastic models in geosystems by S. A Molchanov( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the edited proceedings of a workshop on stochastic models in geosystems held during the week of May 16, 1994 at the Institute for Mathematics and its applications at the University of Minnesota. The authors represent a broad interdisciplinary spectrum including mathematics, statistics, physics, geophysics, astrophysics, atmospheric physics, fluid mechanics, seismology and oceanography. The common underlying theme was stochastic modeling of geophysical phenomena and papers appearing in this volume reflect a number of research directions that are currently pursued in this area. From the methodological mathematical point of view most of the contributions fall within the areas of wave propagation in random media, passive scalar transport in random velocity flows, dynamical systems with random forcing and self-similarity concepts including multifractals

Probability distributions on Banach spaces by N. N Vakhanii︠a︡( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approach your problems from the right end It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is and begin with the answers. Then one day, that they can't see the problem. perhaps you will find the final question. G.K. Chesterton. The Scandal of Father 'The Hermit Clad in Crane Feathers' in R Brown 'The point of a Pin'. van Gulik's The Chinese Maze Murders. Growing specialization and diversification have brought a host of monographs and textbooks on increasingly specialized topics. However, the "tree" of knowledge of mathematics and related fields does not grow only by putting forth new branches. It also happens, quite often in fact, that branches which were thought to be completely disparate are suddenly seen to be related. Further, the kind and level of sophistication of mathematics applied in various sciences has changed drastically in recent years: measure theory is used (non trivially) in regional and theoretical economics; algebraic geometry interacts with physics; the Minkowsky lemma, coding theory and the structure of water meet one another in packing and covering theory; quantum fields, crystal defects and mathematical programming profit from homotopy theory; Lie algebras are relevant to filtering; and prediction and electrical engineering can use Stein spaces. And in addition to this there are such new emerging subdisciplines as "experimental mathematics", "CFD", "completely integrable systems", "chaos, synergetics and large-scale order", which are almost impossible to fit into the existing classification schemes. They draw upon widely different sections of mathematics
