A mathematical introduction to fluid mechanics by Alexandre Joel Chorin ( Book )
46 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematical Introduction to Fluid Mechanics presents some selected highlights of currently interesting topics in fluid mechanics in a compact form, as well as providing a concise and appealing exposition of the basic theory of fluid mechanics. The first chapter contains an elementary derivation of the equations, and the concept of vorticity is introduced. The second chapter contains a discussion of potential flow, vortex motion, and boundary layers. A construction of boundary layers using vortex sheets and random walks is presented. Chapter 3 contains an analysis of one-dimensional gas flow from a mildly modern point of view. Weak solution, Riemann problems, Glimm's scheme, and combustion waves are covered
Stochastic tools in mathematics and science by Alexandre Joel Chorin ( )
31 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This introductory book on probability-based modeling covers basic stochastic tools used in physics, chemistry, engineering and the life sciences. The topics include conditional expectations, stochastic processes, Brownian motion and its relation to partial differential equations, Langevin equations, the Liouville and Fokker-Planck equations, as well as Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms, renormalization and dimensional reduction, and basic equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The applications include data assimilation, prediction from partial data, spectral analysis, and turbulence. A noteworthy feature of the book is the systematic analysis of memory effects
Vorticity and turbulence by Alexandre Joel Chorin ( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides an introduction to turbulence in vortex systems, and to turbulence theory for incompressible flow described in terms of the vorticity field. It is the author's hope that by the end of the book the reader will believe that these subjects are identical, and constitute a special case of fairly standard statistical mechanics, with both equilibrium and non-equilibrium aspects. The author's main goal is to relate turbulence to statistical mechanics. The book is organized as follows: the first three chapters constitute a fairly standard introduction to homogeneous turbulence in incompressible flow; a quick review of fluid mechanics; a summary of the appropriate Fourier theory; a summary of Kolmogorov's theory of the inertial range. The next four chapters present the statistical theory of vortex notion, and the vortex dynamics of turbulence. The book ends with the major conclusion that turbulence can no longer be viewed as incomprehensible. This book will be appropriate for professionals in the fields of applied mathematics, mechanical engineering, or physics, as well as graduate students in these noted areas
Lectures on turbulence theory by Alexandre Joel Chorin ( Book )
17 editions published between 1975 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 301 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 )
14 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 269 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
