Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2003. 
Description  XV, 454 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book comprehensively treats the formulation and finite element approximation of contact and impact problems in nonlinear mechanics. Intended for students, researchers and practitioners interested in numerical solid and structural analysis, as well as for engineers and scientists dealing with technologies in which tribological response must be characterized, the book includes an introductory but detailed overview of nonlinear finite element formulations before dealing with contact and impact specifically. Topics encompassed include the continuum mechanics, mathematical structure, variational framework, and finite element implementations associated with contact/impact interaction. Additionally, important and currently emerging research topics in computational contact mechanics are introduced, encompassing such topics as tribological complexity, conservative treatment of inelastic impact interaction, and novel spatial discretization strategies

Title  Conjugate Gradient Algorithms and Finite Element Methods 
Author(s)  Krizek, Michal;Neittaanm??ki, Pekka;Glowinski, Roland;Korotov, Sergey 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004. 
Description  XV, 384 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The position taken in this collection of pedagogically written essays is that conjugate gradient algorithms and finite element methods complement each other extremely well. Via their combinations practitioners have been able to solve differential equations and multidimensional problems modeled by ordinary or partial differential equations and inequalities, not necessarily linear, optimal control and optimal design being part of these problems. The aim of this book is to present both methods in the context of complicated problems modeled by linear and nonlinear partial differential equations, to provide an indepth discussion on their implementation aspects. The authors show that conjugate gradient methods and finite element methods apply to the solution of reallife problems. They address graduate students as well as experts in scientific computing

Title  Computer Algebra Recipes : A Gourmet???s Guide to the Mathematical Models of Science 
Author(s)  Enns, Richard;McGuire, George C 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2001. 
Description  XIV, 778 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Computer algebra systems have the potential to revolutionize the teaching of and learning of science. Not only can students work thorough mathematical models much more efficiently and with fewer errors than with pencil and paper, they can also work with much more complex and computationally intensive models. Thus, for example, in studying the flight of a golf ball, students can begin with the simple parabolic trajectory, but then add the effects of lift and drag, of winds, and of spin. Not only can the program provide analytic solutions in some cases, it can also produce numerical solutions and graphic displays. Aimed at undergraduates in their second or third year, this book is filled with examples from a wide variety of disciplines, including biology, economics, medicine, engineering, game theory, physics, chemistry. The text is organized along a spiral, revisiting general topics such as graphics, symbolic computation, and numerical simulation in greater detail and more depth at each turn of the spiral. The heart of the text is a large number of computer algebra recipes. These have been designed not only to provide tools for problem solving, but also to stimulate the reader's imagination. Associated with each recipe is a scientific model or method and a story that leads the reader through steps of the recipe.??Each section of recipes is followed by a set of problems that readers can use to check their understanding or to develop the topic further

Title  Friction and Instabilities 
Author(s)  Martinis, J.A.C;Raous, M 
Publication  Vienna, Springer Vienna, 2002. 
Description  VII, 291 p. 109 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book addresses instability and bifurcation phenomena in frictional contact problems. The treatment of this subject has its roots in previous studies of instability and bifurcation in elastic, thermoelastic or elasticplastic bodies, and in previous mathematical, mechanical and computational studies of unilateral problems. The salient feature of this book is to put together and develop concepts and tools for stability and bifurcation studies in mechanics, taking into account the inherent nonsmoothness and nonassociativity (nonsymmetry) of unilateral frictional contact laws. The mechanical foundations, the mathematical theory and the computational algorithms for such studies are developed along six chapters written by the lecturers of a CISM course. Those concepts and tools are illustrated not only with enlightening academic examples but also with some demanding industrial applications, related, namely, to the automotive industry

Title  Rigid Body Dynamics of Mechanisms 2 : Applications 
Author(s)  Hahn, Hubert 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2003. 
Description  XVII, 665 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The second volume of Rigid Body Dynamics of Mechanisms covers applications via a systematic method for deriving model equations of planar and spatial mechanisms. The necessary theoretical foundations have been laid in the first volume that introduces the theoretical mechanical aspects of mechatronic systems. Here the focus is on the application of the modeling methodology to various examples of rigidbody mechanisms, simple planar ones as well as more challenging spatial problems. A rich variety of joint models, active constraints, plus active and passive force elements is treated. The book is intended for selfstudy by working engineers and students concerned with the control of mechanical systems, i.e. robotics, mechatronics, vehicles, and machine tools. The examples included are a likely source from which to choose models for university lectures

Title  Modeling MultiLevel Systems 
Author(s)  Iordache, Octavian 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2011. 
Description  XV, 232 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is devoted to modeling of multilevel complex systems, a challenging domain for engineers, researchers and entrepreneurs, confronted with the transition from learning and adaptability to evolvability and autonomy for technologies, devices and problem solving methods. Chapter 1 introduces the multiscale and multilevel systems and highlights their presence in different domains of science and technology. Methodologies as, random systems, nonArchimedean analysis, category theory and specific techniques as model categorification and integrative closure, are presented in chapter 2. Chapters 3 and 4 describe polystochastic models, PSM, and their developments. Categorical formulation of integrative closure offers the general PSM framework which serves as a flexible guideline for a large variety of multilevel modeling problems. Focusing on chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and environmental case studies, the chapters 5 to 8 analyze mixing, turbulent dispersion and entropy production for multiscale systems. Taking inspiration from systems sciences, chapters 9 to 11 highlight multilevel modeling potentialities in formal concept analysis, existential graphs and evolvable designs of experiments. Case studies refer to separation flowsheets, pharmaceutical pipeline, drug design and development, reliability management systems, security and failure analysis. Perspectives and integrative points of view are discussed in chapter 12. Autonomous and viable systems, multiagents, organic and autonomic computing, multilevel informational systems, are revealed as promising domains for future applications. Written for: engineers, researchers, entrepreneurs and students in chemical, pharmaceutical, environmental and systems sciences engineering, and for applied mathematicians

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
