Numerical algorithms for modern parallel computer architectures
by Martin H Schultz
(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Parallel computers have started to completely revolutionize scientific computation. Articles in this volume represent applied mathematics, computer science, and application aspects of parallel scientific computing. Major advances are discussed dealing with multiprocessor architectures, parallel algorithm development and analysis, parallel systems and programming languages. The optimization of the application of massively parallel architectures to real world problems will provide the impetus for the development of entirely new approaches to these technical situations

QSeries and partitions
by Dennis Stanton
(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This volume contains the proceedings of the workshop held for the Applied Combinatorics program in March, 1988. The central idea of the workshop is the recent interplay of the classical analysis of qseries, and the combinatorial analysis of partitions of intergers. Many related topics are discussed, including orthogonal polynomials, the Macdonald conjectures for root systems, and related integrals. Those people interested in combinatorial enumeration and special functions will find this volume of interest. Recent applications of qseries (and related functions) to exactly solvable statistical mechanics models and to statistics makes this volume of interest to nonspecialists. Included are several expository papers, and a series of papers on new work on the unimodality of the qbinomial coefficient
Computational fluid dynamics and reacting gas flows
by Björn Engquist
(
Book
)
5 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

Two phase flows and waves
by Daniel D Joseph
(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This Workshop, held from January 310, 1989 at IMA, focused on the properties of materials which consist of many small particles or grains. These include granular materials, in which the particles interact through direct contact, and suspensions or two phase materials, in which particles interact through the influence of the surrounding viscous fluids. Such materials are important in many industrial and geological applications, especially fluidized beds. This volume contains ad vanced scientific papers in this rapidly developing subject by authors from several different disciplines (e.g., engineering, physics, mathematics). Some papers attempt to derive continuum constitutive behavior from micromechanics. Others analyze theoretically or solve numerically the partial differential equations which result when an ad hoc constitutive law is assumed. Experimental phenomena exhibited by such materials are reported in other papers. Still other consider the application to fluidized beds

Microlocal analysis and nonlinear waves
by Michael Beals
(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The behavior of linear hyperbolic waves has been analyzed by decomposing the waves into pieces in spacetime and into different frequencies. The linear nature of the equations involved allows the reassembling of the pieces in a simple fashion; the individual pieces do not interact. For nonlinear waves the interaction of the pieces seemed to preclude such an analysis, but in the late 1970s it was shown that a similar procedure could be undertaken in this case and would yield important information. The analysis of the decomposed waves, and of waves with special smoothness or size in certain directions, has been fruitful in describing a variety of the properties of nonlinear waves. This volume presents a number of articles on topics of current interest which involves the use of the newer techniques on nonlinear waves. The results established include descriptions of the smoothness of such waves as determined by their geometry, the properties of solutions with high frequency oscillations, and the longtime smoothness and size estimates satisfied by nonlinear waves

Multidimensional hyperbolic problems and computations
by James Glimm
(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This volume is the proceedings of a two week workshop on multidimensional hyperbolic problems held during April 1989. The twentysix 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
Amorphous polymers and nonNewtonian fluids

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications was established by a grant from the National Science Foundation to the University of Minnesota in 1982. The IMA seeks to encourage the development and study of fresh mathematical concepts and questions of concern to the other sciences by bringing together mathematicians and scientists from diverse fields in an atmosphere that will stimulate discussion and collaboration. The IMA Volumes are intended to involve the broader scientific community in this process

Patterns and dynamics in reactive media
by Rutherford Aris
(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Ever since the seminal works on traveling waves and morphogenesis by Fisher, by Kolmogorov, Petrovski and Piscunov, and by Turing, scientists from many disciplines have been fascinated by questions concerning the formation of steady or dynamic patterns in reactive media. Contributions to this volume have been made by chemists, chemical engineers, mathematicians (both pure and applied), and physicists. The topics covered range from reports of experimental studies, through descriptions of numerical experiments, to rather abstract theoretical investigations, each exhibiting different aspects of a very diverse field more
