Title  Simulating Complex Systems by Cellular Automata 
Author(s)  Hoekstra, Alfons G;Kroc, Jiri;Sloot, Peter M.A 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  XXII, 384 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Deeply rooted in fundamental research in Mathematics and Computer Science, Cellular Automata (CA) are recognized as an intuitive modeling paradigm for Complex Systems. Already very basic CA, with extremely simple micro dynamics such as the Game of Life, show an almost endless display of complex emergent behavior. Conversely, CA can also be designed to produce a desired emergent behavior, using either theoretical methodologies or evolutionary techniques. Meanwhile, beyond the original realm of applications  Physics, Computer Science, and Mathematics ??? CA have also become work horses in very different disciplines such as epidemiology, immunology, sociology, and finance. In this context of fast and impressive progress, spurred further by the enormous attraction these topics have on students, this book emerges as a welcome overview of the field for its practitioners, as well as a good starting point for detailed study on the graduate and postgraduate level. The book contains three parts, two major parts on theory and applications, and a smaller part on software. The theory part contains fundamental chapters on how to design and/or apply CA for many different areas. In the applications part a number of representative examples of really using CA in a broad range of disciplines is provided  this part will give the reader a good idea of the real strength of this kind of modeling as well as the incentive to apply CA in their own field of study

Title  Computational Methods for Physicists : Compendium for Students 
Author(s)  Sirca, Simon;Horvat, Martin 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. 
Description  XX, 716 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book helps advanced undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students in their daily work by offering them a compendium of numerical methods. The choice of methods pays significant attention to error estimates, stability and convergence issues as well as to the ways to optimize program execution speeds. Many examples are given throughout the chapters, and each chapter is followed by at least a handful of more comprehensive problems which may be dealt with, for example, on a weekly basis in a one or twosemester course. In these endofchapter problems the physics background is pronounced, and the main text preceding them is intended as an introduction or as a later reference. Less stress is given to the explanation of individual algorithms. It is tried to induce in the reader an own independent thinking and a certain amount of scepticism and scrutiny instead of blindly following readily available commercial tools

Title  Large Eddy Simulation for Incompressible Flows : An Introduction 
Author(s)  Sagaut, P 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2006. 
Description  XXIX, 558 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The first and most exhaustive work of its kind devoted entirely to the subject, Large Eddy Simulation presents a comprehensive account and a unified view of this young but very rich discipline. LES is the only efficient technique for approaching high Reynolds numbers when simulating industrial, natural or experimental configurations. The author concentrates on incompressible fluids and chooses his topics in treating with care both the mathematical ideas and their applications. The book addresses researchers as well as graduate students and engineers. The second edition was a greatly enriched version motivated both by the increasing theoretical interest in LES and the increasing number of applications. Two entirely new chapters were devoted to the coupling of LES with multiresolution multidomain techniques and to the new hybrid approaches that relate the LES procedures to the classical statistical methods based on the ReynoldsAveraged NavierStokes equations. This 3rd edition adds various sections to the text such as a careful error analysis of filtered density function models and multiscale models. It also contains two new chapters dealing with the mathematical representations of LES and the prediction of active and passive scalar dynamics, which are of considerable interest for engineering and geophysical modeling. The part on geophysical flow has much to offer on a critical current issue. To quote from the foreword to the third edition written by Charles Meneveau: "... this meticulously assembled and significantly enlarged description of the many aspects of LES will be a most welcome addition to the bookshelves of scientists and engineers in fluid mechanics, LES practitioners, and students of turbulence in general."

Title  Spectral Methods for Uncertainty Quantification : With Applications to Computational Fluid Dynamics 
Author(s)  Le Maitre, Olivier;Knio, Omar M 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2010. 
Description  XVI, 536 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents applications of spectral methods to problems of uncertainty propagation and quantification in modelbased computations, focusing on the computational and algorithmic features of these methods most useful in dealing with models based on partial differential equations, in particular models arising in simulations of fluid flows. Spectral stochastic methods are probabilistic in nature, and are consequently rooted in the rich mathematical foundations associated with probability and measure spaces. A brief discussion is provided of only those theoretical aspects needed to set the stage for subsequent applications. These are demonstrated through detailed treatments of elementary problems, as well as in more elaborate examples involving vortexdominated flows and compressible flows at low Mach numbers. Some recent developments are also outlined in the book, including iterative techniques (such as stochastic multigrids and Newton schemes), intrusive and nonintrusive formalisms, spectral representations using mixed and discontinuous bases, multiresolution approximations, and adaptive techniques. Readers are assumed to be familiar with elementary methods for the numerical solution of timedependent, partial differential equations; prior experience with spectral approximation is helpful but not essential

Title  Asymptotic Analysis and Boundary Layers 
Author(s)  Cousteix, Jean;Mauss, Jacques 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2007. 
Description  XVII, 434 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a new method of asymptotic analysis of boundarylayer problems, the Successive Complementary Expansion Method (SCEM). The first part is devoted to a general comprehensive presentation of the tools of asymptotic analysis. It gives the keys to understand a boundarylayer problem and explains the methods to construct an approximation. The second part is devoted to SCEM and its applications in fluid mechanics, including external and internal flows. The advantages of SCEM are discussed in comparison with the standard Method of Matched Asymptotic Expansions. In particular, for the first time, the theory of Interactive Boundary Layer is fully justified. With its chapter summaries, detailed derivations of results, discussed examples and fully worked out problems and solutions, the book is selfcontained. It is written on a mathematical level accessible to graduate and postgraduate students of engineering and physics with a good knowledge in fluid mechanics. Researchers and practitioners will esteem it as a valuable monograph in their field of work. Asymptotic Analysis and Boundary Layers is an extended English edition of Analyse asymptotique et couche limite published in the Springer series Math??matiques et Applications

Title  Unexploded Ordnance Detection and Mitigation 
Author(s)  Byrnes, James 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2009. 
Description  X, 286 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The chapters in this volume were presented at the July???August 2008 NATO Advanced Study Institute on Unexploded Ordnance Detection and Mitigation. The conference was held at the beautiful Il Ciocco resort near Lucca, in the glorious Tuscany region of northern Italy. For the ninth time we gathered at this idyllic spot to explore and extend the reciprocity between mathematics and engineering. The dynamic interaction between worldrenowned scientists from the usually disparate communities of pure mathematicians and applied scientists which occurred at our eight previous ASI???s continued at this meeting. The detection and neutralization of unexploded ordnance (UXO) has been of major concern for very many decades; at least since the First World war. UXO continues to be the subject of intensive research in many ?elds of science, incl ing mathematics, signal processing (mainly radar and sonar) and chemistry. While today???s headlines emphasize the mayhem resulting from the placement of imp vised explosive devices (IEDs), humanitarian landmine clearing continues to draw signi?cant global attention as well. In many countries of the world, landmines threaten the population and hinder reconstruction and fast, ef?cient utilization of large areas of the mined land in the aftermath of military con?icts

Title  Extreme ManMade and Natural Hazards in Dynamics of Structures 
Author(s)  Ibrahimbegovic, Adnan;Kozar, Ivica 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2007. 
Description  VIII, 294 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  There is currently ever pressing need to provide a critical assessment of the current knowledge and indicate new challenges which are brought by the present time in fighting the manmade and natural hazards in transient analysis of structures. The latter concerns both the permanently fixed structures, such as those built to protect the people and/or sensitive storage material (e. g. military installations) or the special structures found in transportation systems (e. g. bridges, tunnels), and the moving structures (such as trains, plains, ships or cars). The present threat of the terrorist attacks or accidental explosions, the climate change which brings strong stormy winds or yet the destructive earthquake motion that occurs in previously inactive regions or brings about tsunamis, are a few examples of the kind of applications we seek to address in this work. The common ground for all the problems of this kind from the viewpoint of structural integrity, which also justifies putting them on the same basis and addressing them within the same context, is their sudden appearance, their transient nature and the need to evaluate the consequence for a high level of uncertainty in quantifying the cause. The problems of such diversity cannot be placed within a single traditional scientific discipline, but they call for the expertise in probability theory for quantifying the cause, interaction problems for better understanding the physical nature of the problems, as well as modeling and computational techniques for improving the representation of inelastic behavior mechanisms and providing the optimal design
