Title  Understanding Acoustics : An Experimentalist???s View of Acoustics and Vibration 
Author(s)  Garrett, Steven L 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXXI, 896 p. 401 illus., 81 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides a unified approach to acoustics and vibration suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and firstyear graduate courses on vibration and fluids. The book includes thorough treatment of vibration of harmonic oscillators, coupled oscillators, isotropic elasticity, and waves in solids including the use of resonance techniques for determination of elastic moduli. Drawing on 35 years of experience teaching introductory graduate acoustics at the Naval Postgraduate School and Penn State, the author presents a hydrodynamic approach to the acoustics of sound in fluids that provides a uniform methodology for analysis of lumpedelement systems and wave propagation that can incorporate attenuation mechanisms and complex media. This view provides a consistent and reliable approach that can be extended with confidence to more complex fluids and future applications. Understanding Acoustics opens with a mathematical introduction that includes graphing and statistical uncertainty, followed by five chapters on vibration and elastic waves that provide important results and highlight modern applications while introducing analytical techniques that are revisited in the study of waves in fluids covered in Part II. A unified approach to waves in fluids (i.e., liquids and gases) is based on a mastery of the hydrodynamic equations. Part III demonstrates extensions of this view to nonlinear acoustics. Engaging and practical, this book is a mustread for graduate students in acoustics and vibration as well as active researchers interested in a novel approach to the material. Provides graduatelevel treatment of acoustics and vibration suitable for use in courses and for selfguided study Highlights fundamental physical principles that can provide independent tests of the validity of numerical solutions and computer simulations Demonstrates use of approximation techniques that greatly simplify the mathematics without substantial decrease in accuracy Includes endofchapter problems and "Talk like an Acoustician" boxes to highlight key terms introduced in the text

Title  Controlling Synchronization Patterns in Complex Networks 
Author(s)  Lehnert, Judith 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 203 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This research aims to achieve a fundamental understanding of synchronization and its interplay with the topology of complex networks. Synchronization is a ubiquitous phenomenon observed in different contexts in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering. Most prominently, synchronization takes place in the brain, where it is associated with several cognitive capacities but is  in abundance  a characteristic of neurological diseases. Besides zerolag synchrony, group and cluster states are considered, enabling a description and study of complex synchronization patterns within the presented theory. Adaptive control methods are developed, which allow the control of synchronization in scenarios where parameters drift or are unknown. These methods are, therefore, of particular interest for experimental setups or technological applications. The theoretical framework is demonstrated on generic models, coupled chemical oscillators and several detailed examples of neural networks

Title  Algorithms of Estimation for Nonlinear Systems : A Differential and Algebraic Viewpoint 
Author(s)  Mart??nezGuerra, Rafael;CruzAncona, Christopher Diego 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XX, 197 p. 58 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book acquaints readers with recent developments in dynamical systems theory and its applications, with a strong focus on the control and estimation of nonlinear systems. Several algorithms are proposed and worked out for a set of model systems, in particular socalled inputaffine or bilinear systems, which can serve to approximate a wide class of nonlinear control systems. These can either take the form of state space models or be represented by an inputoutput equation. The approach taken here further highlights the role of modern mathematical and conceptual tools, including differential algebraic theory, observer design for nonlinear systems and generalized canonical forms

Title  Optimal Trajectory Tracking of Nonlinear Dynamical Systems 
Author(s)  L??ber, Jakob 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 243 p. 36 illus., 32 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  By establishing an alternative foundation of control theory, this thesis represents a significant advance in the theory of control systems, of interest to a broad range of scientists and engineers. While common control strategies for dynamical systems center on the system state as the object to be controlled, the approach developed here focuses on the state trajectory. The concept of precisely realizable trajectories identifies those trajectories that can be accurately achieved by applying appropriate control signals. The resulting simple expressions for the control signal lend themselves to immediate application in science and technology. The approach permits the generalization of many wellknown results from the control theory of linear systems, e.g. the Kalman rank condition to nonlinear systems. The relationship between controllability, optimal control and trajectory tracking are clarified. Furthermore, the existence of linear structures underlying nonlinear optimal control is revealed, enabling the derivation of exact analytical solutions to an entire class of nonlinear optimal trajectory tracking problems. The clear and selfcontained presentation focuses on a general and mathematically rigorous analysis of controlled dynamical systems. The concepts developed are visualized with the help of particular dynamical systems motivated by physics and chemistry

Title  Elastic and Thermoelastic Problems in Nonlinear Dynamics of Structural Members : Applications of the BubnovGalerkin and Finite Difference Methods 
Author(s)  Awrejcewicz, Jan;Krysko, Vadim A 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XX, 602 p. 333 illus., 260 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Adding seven new chapters integrating modern approaches to dynamical systems theory, this revised second edition describes numerical approaches to the nonlinear theory of beams, plates and shells, with an emphasis to the elastic and thermoelastic features. The added chapters discuss in particular how to understand, model, and obtain reliable results while detecting and analysing chaotic dynamics exhibited by thin structural members. The authors attempt to address the large impact of new directions of nonlinear dynamical phenomena in the context of the overall stateofthe art presented in the first book edition. They also present new perspectives of the unsolved problems of thin structural members. The authors made every effort to keep the text intelligible for both practitioners and graduate students, although they offer a rigorous treatment of both purely mathematical and numerical approaches presented so that the reader can understand, analyse and track the nonlinear dynamics of spatial systems (shells) with thermomechanical behaviours.

Title  Waves with PowerLaw Attenuation 
Author(s)  Holm, Sverre 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XXXVII, 312 p. 142 illus., 82 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book integrates concepts from physical acoustics with those from linear viscoelasticity and fractional linear viscoelasticity. Compressional waves and shear waves in applications such as medical ultrasound, elastography, and sediment acoustics often follow power law attenuation and dispersion laws that cannot be described with classical viscous and relaxation models. This is accompanied by temporal power laws rather than the temporal exponential responses of classical models. The book starts by reformulating the classical models of acoustics in terms of standard models from linear elasticity. Then, nonclassical loss models that follow power laws and which are expressed via convolution models and fractional derivatives are covered in depth. In addition, parallels are drawn to electromagnetic waves in complex dielectric media. The book also contains historical vignettes and important side notes about the validity of central questions. While addressed primarily to physicists and engineers working in the field of acoustics, this expert monograph will also be of interest to mathematicians, mathematical physicists, and geophysicists. Couples fractional derivatives and power laws and gives their multiple relaxation process interpretation Investigates causes of power law attenuation and dispersion such as interaction with hierarchical models of polymer chains and nonNewtonian viscosity Shows how fractional and multiple relaxation models are inherent in the grain shearing and extended Biot descriptions of sediment acoustics Contains historical vignettes and side notes about the formulation of some of the concepts discussed

Title  Sound Topology, Duality, Coherence and WaveMixing : An Introduction to the Emerging New Science of Sound 
Author(s)  Deymier, Pierre;Runge, Keith 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 363 p. 50 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an essential introduction to the notions of sound wave topology, duality, coherence and wavemixing, which constitute the emerging new science of sound. It includes general principles and specific examples that illuminate new nonconventional forms of sound (sound topology), unconventional quantumlike behavior of phonons (duality), radical linear and nonlinear phenomena associated with loss and its control (coherence), and exquisite effects that emerge from the interaction of sound with other physical and biological waves (wave mixing).?? The book provides the reader with the foundations needed to master these complex notions through simple yet meaningful examples. General principles for unraveling and describing the topology of acoustic wave functions in the space of their Eigen values are presented. These principles are then applied to uncover intrinsic and extrinsic approaches to achieving nonconventional topologies by breaking the time revers al symmetry of acoustic waves. Symmetry breaking can impart topological immunity to wave degradation from imperfection scattering and catalyze controlled coherence. In the intrinsic case and the phonon representation of acoustic waves, the selfinteraction/interference of a wave through its supporting medium exposes the notion of duality in the quantum statistics (i.e. boson vs. fermion characterized by the symmetry of multiple particle states) and how the quantum analogue behaviors of sound can be exploited in the form of novel soundbased information transfer and processing devices. By considering media that mix different types of waves, the book addresses the interaction of sound with other physical and biological waves but also brings to light examples of extrinsic processes that can lead to symmetry breaking. The coherent conversion of sound into other types of waves as well as the soundinduced nonconventional topology of elastic, electronic, spin and biological waves are presented in the case of media exhibiting elastoelectronic, photoelastic, magnetoelastic effects and biological mechanotransduction
