Fundamental trends in fluid-structure interaction ( file )
13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,474 libraries worldwide
The interaction of a fluid with a solid body is a widespread phenomenon in nature, occurring at different scales and different applied disciplines. Interestingly enough, even though the mathematical theory of the motion of bodies in a liquid is one of the oldest and most classical problems in fluid mechanics, mathematicians have, only very recently, become interested in a systematic study of the basic problems related to fluid-structure interaction, from both analytical and numerical viewpoints. "Fundamental Trends in Fluid-Structure Interaction" is a unique collection of important page
Reactive flows, diffusion and transport : from experiments via mathematical modeling to numerical simulation and optimization : final report of SFB (Collaborative Research Center) 359 by W Jäger( file )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 525 libraries worldwide
The articles in this volume summarize the research results obtained in the former SFB 359 "Reactive Flow, Diffusion and Transport" which has been supported by the DFG over the period 1993-2004. The main subjects are physical-chemical processes sharing the difficulty of interacting diffusion, transport and reaction which cannot be considered separately. Typical examples are the chemical processes in flow reactors and in the catalytic combustion at surfaces. Further examples are models of star formation including diffusive mass transport, energy radiation and dust formation and the polluting transport in soil and waters. For these complex processes mathematical models are established and numerically simulated. The modeling uses multiscale techniques for nonlinear differential equations while for the numerical simulation and optimization goal-oriented mesh and model adaptivity, multigrid techniques and advanced Newton-type methods are developed combined with parallelization. This modeling and simulation is accompanied by experiments

Hemodynamical flows : modeling, analysis, and simulation by Giovanni P Galdi( file )
15 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 392 libraries worldwide
Hemodynamics is the study of the forces and physicalmechanisms associatedwith blood ?ow in the cardiovascularsystem. Due to the fact that blood is a suspension of ?exible particles in plasma and to the coupling between motion of blood and the vessel wall, necessarily this subject includes both ?uid and solid mechanical processes. Hemodynamic features such as ?ow separation, ?ow recirculation, and low and oscillatory wall shear stress are believed to play important roles in the localization and development of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis, cerebral aneurysms, post-stenotic dilations and arteriovenous malformations. Therefore, modeling, mathematical analysis and numerical simulation of these processes can ultimately contribute to improved clinical diagnosis and therapeutic planning. However, the circulatory system is extremely complex and so researchers are facedwith the need to formulatethe numericalormathematicalproblemin a form which is su?ciently simple to be tractable, yet maintains enough complexity to be relevant.Forexample, ratherthanmodeling the entirecirculatorysystem,isolated segmentsofthe circulationarestudied,introducingthe needtochooseappropriate in?ow and out?ow boundary conditions and possibly take a multi-scale approach. The blood vessel wall is an inhomogeneous, nonlinear, material capable of growth and remodeling, and blood is a concentrated suspension of deformable cellular elements in plasma. The modeler needs to choose suitable constitutive models for the wall and blood. The diameter of vessels in the circulatory system ranges from the order of centimeters in the larger arteries to microns in the capillaries

Fundamental directions in mathematical fluid mechanics ( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 249 libraries worldwide
This set of six papers, written by eminent experts in the field, is concerned with that part of fluid mechanics that seeks its foundation in the rigorous mathematical treatment of the Navier-Stokes equations. In particular, an overview is given on state of research regarding the global existence of smooth solutions, for which uniqueness and continuous dependence on the data can be proven. Then, the book moves on to a discussion of recent developments of the finite element Galerkin method, with an emphasis on a priori and a posteriori error estimation and adaptive mesh refinement. A further article elaborates on spectral Galerkin methods and their extension to domains with complicated geometries by employing the techniques of domain decomposition. The rigorous explanation of bifurcation phenomena in fluids has long been a central topic in the theory of Navier-Stokes equations. Here, bifurcation theory is introduced in a general setting that is particularly convenient for application to such problems. Finally, the extension of Navier-Stokes theory to compressible viscous flows, studied in two more papers, opens up a fascinating panorama of theoretical and numerical problems. While some of the contributions are expository, others primarily present new results within a wider context and fuller exposition than is usual for research papers. The book is meant to introduce researchers and advanced students to the research level on some of the most important topics of the field
Adaptive finite element methods for differential equations by Wolfgang Bangerth( Book )
11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 245 libraries worldwide
These Lecture Notes discuss concepts of `self-adaptivity' in the numerical solution of differential equations, with emphasis on Galerkin finite element methods. The key issues are a posteriori error estimation and it automatic mesh adaptation. Besides the traditional approach of energy-norm error control, a new duality-based technique, the Dual Weighted Residual method for goal-oriented error estimation, is discussed in detail. This method aims at economical computation of arbitrary quantities of physical interest by properly adapting the computational mesh. This is typically required in the design cycles of technical applications. For example, the drag coefficient of a body immersed in a viscous flow is computed, then it is minimized by varying certain control parameters, and finally the stability of the resulting flow is investigated by solving an eigenvalue problem. `Goal-oriented' adaptivity is designed to achieve these tasks with minimal cost. At the end of each chapter some exercises are posed in order to assist the interested reader in better understanding the concepts presented. Solutions and accompanying remarks are given in the Appendix. For the practical exercises, sample programs are provided via internet

7 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 99 libraries worldwide
The book provides an overview of the numerical modelling of radiation fields in multidimensional geometries. It covers advances and problems in the mathematical treatment of the radiative transfer equation, a partial integro-differential equation of high dimension that describes the propagation of theradiation in various fields. Highly accurate andfast methodswith sound analytical foundations are particularly emphasized. The volume should not only serve as a basis for the selection ofsuitable methods for actual radiative transfer problems in disciplines from astronomy and climatology to radiological diagnostics but also be a starting point for additional mathematical investigations on many still unknown aspects of the transfer equation
Trends in nonlinear analysis by Markus Kirkilionis( file )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 67 libraries worldwide
Applied mathematics is a central connecting link between scientific observations and their theoretical interpretation. Nonlinear analysis has surely contributed major developments which nowadays shape the face of applied mathematics. At the beginning of the millennium, all sciences are expanding at increased speed. Technological, ecological, economical and medical problem solving is a central issue of every modern society. Mathematical models help to expose fundamental structures hidden in these problems and serve as unifying tools to deepen our understanding. What are the new challenges applied mathematics has to face with the increased diversity of scientific problems? In which direction should the classical tools of nonlinear analysis be developed further? How do new available technologies influence the development of the field? How can problems be solved which have been beyond reach in former times? It is the aim of this book to explore new developments in the field by way of discussion of selected topics from nonlinear analysis
Constrained optimization and optimal control for partial differential equations by Günter Leugering( file )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
This special volume focuses on optimization and control of processes governed by partial differential equations. The contributors are mostly participants of the DFG-priority program 1253: Optimization with PDE-constraints which is active since 2006. The book is organized in sections which cover almost the entire spectrum of modern research in this emerging field. Indeed, even though the field of optimal control and optimization for PDE-constrained problems has undergone a dramatic increase of interest during the last four decades, a full theory for nonlinear problems is still lacking. The contributions of this volume, some of which have the character of survey articles, therefore, aim at creating and developing further new ideas for optimization, control and corresponding numerical simulations of systems of possibly coupled nonlinear partial differential equations. The research conducted within this unique network of groups in more than fifteen German universities focuses on novel methods of optimization, control and identification for problems in infinite-dimensional spaces, shape and topology problems, model reduction and adaptivity, discretization concepts and important applications. Besides the theoretical interest, the most prominent question is about the effectiveness of model-based numerical optimization methods for PDEs versus a black-box approach that uses existing codes, often heuristic-based, for optimization
