Vortex methods in two-dimensional fluid dynamics by Carlo Marchioro ( Book )
11 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The mathematical theory of dilute gases by Carlo Cercignani ( Book )
10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is devoted to the presentation of rigorous mathematical results in the kinetic theory of a gas of hard spheres. Recent developments as well as classical results are presented in a unified way, such that the book should become the standard reference on the subject. There is no such book available at present. The reader will find a systematic treatment of the main mathematical results, a discussion of open problems, and a guide to the existing literature. There is a rigorous and comprehensive presentation of strict validation of the Boltzmann equations, global existence theory, and the fluid-dynamical limits. The authors also review and discuss classical derivation and properties of the Boltzmann equation, particle simulation methods, and boundary conditions
Mathematical theory of incompressible non-viscous fluids by Carlo Marchioro ( Book )
8 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book deals with fluid dynamics of incompressible non-viscous fluids. The main goal is to present an argument of large interest for physics, and applications in a rigorous logical and mathematical setup, therefore avoiding cumbersome technicalities. Classical as well as modern mathematical developments are illustrated in this book, which should fill a gap in the present literature. The book does not require a deep mathematical knowledge. The required background is a good understanding of classical arguments of mathematical analysis, including the basic elements of ordinary and partial differential equations, measure theory and analytic functions, and a few notions of potential theory and functional analysis. The contents of the book begins with the Euler equation, construction of solutions, stability of stationary solutions of the Euler equation. It continues with the vortex model, approximation methods, evolution of discontinuities, and concludes with turbulence
Modeling in applied sciences : a kinetic theory approach ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Modeling complex biological, chemical, and physical systems, in the context of spatially heterogeneous mediums, is a challenging task for scientists and engineers using traditional methods of analysis. Modeling in Applied Sciences is a comprehensive survey of modeling large systems using kinetic equations, and in particular the Boltzmann equation and its generalizations. An interdisciplinary group of leading authorities carefully develop the foundations of kinetic models and discuss the connections and interactions between model theories, qualitative and computational analysis and real-world applications. This book provides a thoroughly accessible and lucid overview of the different aspects, models, computations, and methodology for the kinetic-theory modeling process. Topics and Features: * Integrated modeling perspective utilized in all chapters * Fluid dynamics of reacting gases * Self-contained introduction to kinetic models * BeckerDoring equations * Nonlinear kinetic models with chemical reactions * Kinetic traffic-flow models * Models of granular media * Large communication networks * Thorough discussion of numerical simulations of Boltzmann equation This new book is an essential resource for all scientists and engineers who use large-scale computations for studying the dynamics of complex systems of fluids and particles. Professionals, researchers, and postgraduates will find the book a modern and authoritative guide to the topic
