With a short review of mixed equations and a discussion of compressible flow, Morawitz illustrates the phenomenon of shocks in transonic flow and describes computations made in 1970s showing that these shocks could be smoothed by clever design

Hyperbolic partial differential equations by Peter D Lax( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of hyperbolic equations is a large subject, and its applications are many: fluid dynamics and aerodynamics, the theory of elasticity, optics, electromagnetic waves, direct and inverse scattering, and the general theory of relativity. This book is an introduction to most facets of the theory and is an ideal text for a second-year graduate course on the subject. The first part deals with the basic theory: the relation of hyperbolicity to the finite propagation of signals, the concept and role of characteristic surfaces and rays, energy, and energy inequalities. The structure of solutions of equations with constant coefficients is explored with the help of the Fourier and Radon transforms. The existence of solutions of equations with variable coefficients with prescribed initial values is proved using energy inequalities. The propagation of singularities is studied with the help of progressing waves. The second part describes finite difference approximations of hyperbolic equations, presents a streamlined version of the Lax-Phillips scattering theory, and covers basic concepts and results for hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, an active research area today. Four brief appendices sketch topics that are important or amusing, such as Huygens' principle and a theory of mixed initial and boundary value problems. A fifth appendix by Cathleen Morawetz describes a nonstandard energy identity and its uses. -- Back cover
Novel schemes for sigma-delta modulation: From improved exponential accuracy to low-complexity design by Felix Krahmer( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is known that exponential accuracy with an error decay rate O(2 --rlambda) for some rate constant r> 0 is achievable via Sigma-Delta modulation with modulators of increasing order. In this thesis, we first construct a family of schemes which gives a better rate constant r than is known for oversampled one-bit quantization. The construction builds on an idea by Gunturk and proceeds by solving an optimization problem posed in his work. En route, the solution establishes a connection between Sigma-Delta modulation and the theory of orthogonal polynomials
