Partial Differential Equations in Fluid Dynamics

Autor Isom H. Herron, Michael R. Foster
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 17 iul 2014
This book is concerned with partial differential equations applied to fluids problems in science and engineering and is designed for two potential audiences. First, this book can function as a text for a course in mathematical methods in fluid mechanics in non-mathematics departments or in mathematics service courses. The authors have taught both. Second, this book is designed to help provide serious readers of journals (professionals, researchers, and graduate students) in analytical science and engineering with tools to explore and extend the missing steps in an analysis. The topics chosen for the book are those that the authors have found to be of considerable use in their own research careers. These topics are applicable in many areas, such as aeronautics and astronautics; biomechanics; chemical, civil, and mechanical engineering; fluid mechanics; and geophysical flows. Continuum ideas arise in other contexts, and the techniques included have applications there as well.

Notă biografică

Isom Herron is a Professor of Mathematics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. After completing his PhD at The Johns Hopkins University and a post-doctoral at the California Institute of Technology, he was in the Mathematics Department at Howard University for many years, and he has held visiting appointments at Northwestern University, University of Maryland, MIT, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Professor Herron's research is in one of the richest areas of applied mathematics: the theory of the stability of fluid flows. Common applications are to phenomena in the atmosphere and the oceans, to problems of the motion of ships and aircraft, and to internal machinery. Modern approaches involve new techniques in operator theory, energy methods, and dynamical systems. His current research interests are in stability of rotating magneto-hydrodynamic flows and more complicated geophysical flows such as groundwater, for which mathematical models are still being developed.
