Title  Gas Dynamics : An Introduction with Examples from Astrophysics and Geophysics 
Author(s)  Achterberg, Abraham 
Publication  Paris, 1. Atlantis Press
2. Imprint: Atlantis Press, 2016. 
Description  XII, 391 p. 83 illus., 36 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book lays the foundations of gas and fluid dynamics. The basic equations are developed from first principles, building on the (assumed) knowledge of Classical Mechanics. This leads to the discussion of the mathematical properties of flows, conservation laws, perturbation analysis, waves and shocks. Most of the discussion centers on ideal (frictionless) fluids and gases. Viscous flows are discussed when considering flows around obstacles and shocks. Many of the examples used to illustrate various processes come from astrophysics and geophysical phenomena

Title  Magnetohydrodynamics and Fluid Dynamics: Action Principles and Conservation Laws 
Author(s)  Webb, Gary 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIV, 301 p. 22 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This text focuses on conservation laws in magnetohydrodynamics, gasdynamics and hydrodynamics. A grasp of new conservation laws is essential in fusion and space plasmas, as well as in geophysical fluid dynamics; they can be used to test numerical codes, or to reveal new aspects of the underlying physics, e.g., by identifying the time history of the fluid elements as an important key to understanding fluid vorticity or in investigating the stability of steady flows. The ten Galilean Lie point symmetries of the fundamental action discussed in this book give rise to the conservation of energy, momentum, angular momentum and center of mass conservation laws via Noether???s first theorem. The advected invariants are related to fluid relabeling symmetries ??? socalled diffeomorphisms associated with the Lagrangian map ??? and are obtained by applying the EulerPoincare approach to Noether???s second theorem. The book discusses several variants of helicity including kinetic helicity, cross helicity, magnetic helicity, Ertels??? theorem and potential vorticity, the Hollman invariant, and the Godbillon Vey invariant. The book develops the noncanonical Hamiltonian approach to MHD using the noncanonical Poisson bracket, while also refining the multisymplectic approach to ideal MHD and obtaining novel nonlocal conservation laws. It also briefly discusses Anco and Bluman???s direct method for deriving conservation laws. A range of examples is used to illustrate topological invariants in MHD and fluid dynamics, including the Hopf invariant, the Calugareanu invariant, the Taylor magnetic helicity reconnection hypothesis for magnetic fields in highly conducting plasmas, and the magnetic helicity of Alfv??n simple waves, MHD topological solitons, and the Parker Archimedean spiral magnetic field. The Lagrangian map is used to obtain a class of solutions for incompressible MHD. The AharonovBohm interpretation of magnetic helicity and cross helicity is discussed. In closing, examples of magnetosonic Nwaves are used to illustrate the role of the wave number and group velocity concepts for MHD waves. This selfcontained and pedagogical guide to the fundamentals will benefit postgraduatelevel newcomers and seasoned researchers alike

Title  A Concise Course on the Theory of Classical Liquids : Basics and Selected Topics 
Author(s)  Santos, Andr??s 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXX, 271 p. 124 illus., 94 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This short primer offers nonspecialist readers a concise, yet comprehensive introduction to the field of classical fluids ??? providing both fundamental information and a number of selected topics to bridge the gap between the basics and ongoing research. In particular, hardsphere systems represent a favorite playground in statistical mechanics, both in and out of equilibrium, as they represent the simplest models of manybody systems of interacting particles, and at higher temperature and densities they have proven to be very useful as reference systems for real fluids. Moreover, their usefulness in the realm of soft condensed matter has become increasingly recognized ??? for instance, the effective interaction among (sterically stabilized) colloidal particles can be tuned to almost perfectly match the hardsphere model. These lecture notes present a brief, selfcontained overview of equilibrium statistical mechanics of classical fluids, with special applications to both the structural and thermodynamic properties of systems made of particles interacting via the hardsphere potential or closely related model potentials. In particular it addresses the exact statisticalmechanical properties of onedimensional systems, the issue of thermodynamic (in)consistency among different routes in the context of several approximate theories, and the construction of analytical or semianalytical approximations for the structural properties. Written pedagogically at the graduate level, with many figures, tables, photographs, and guided endofchapter exercises, this introductory text benefits students and newcomers to the field alike.

Title  Homogeneous Turbulence Dynamics 
Author(s)  Sagaut, Pierre;Cambon, Claude 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXIX, 897 p. 267 illus., 75 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides stateoftheart results and theories in homogeneous turbulence, including anisotropy and compressibility effects with extension to quantum turbulence, magnetohydodynamic turbulence?? and turbulence in nonnewtonian fluids. Each chapter is devoted to a given type of interaction (strain, rotation, shear, etc.), and presents and compares experimental data, numerical results, analysis of the Reynolds stress budget equations and advanced multipoint spectral theories. The role of both linear and nonlinear mechanisms is emphasized. The link between the statistical properties and the dynamics of coherent structures is also addressed. Despite its restriction to homogeneous turbulence, the book is of interest to all people working in turbulence, since the basic physical mechanisms which are present in all turbulent flows are explained. The reader will find a unified presentation of the results and a clear presentation of existing controversies. Special attention is given to bridge the results obtained in different research communities. Mathematical tools and advanced physical models are detailed in dedicated chapters

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  Air and Water : Trade Winds, Hurricanes, Gulf Stream, Tsunamis and Other Striking Phenomena 
Author(s)  Moreau, Ren?? 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 265 p. 97 illus., 91 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Air and water are so familiar that we all think we know them. Yet how difficult it remains to predict their behavior, with so many questions butting against the limits of our knowledge. How are cyclones, tornadoes, thunderstorms, tsunamis or floods generated ??? sometimes causing devastation and death? What will the weather be tomorrow, next week, next summer? This book brings some answers to these questions with a strategy of describing before explaining. Starting by considering air and water in equilibrium (i.e., at rest), it progresses to discuss dynamic phenomena first focusing on large scale structures, such as El Ni??o or trade winds, then on ever smaller structures, such as lowpressure zones in the atmosphere, clouds, rain, as well as tides and waves. It finishes by describing manmad e constructions (dams, ports, power plants, etc.) that serve to domesticate our water resources and put them to work for us. Including over one hundred illustrations and very few equations, most of the text is accessible to readers with no more than highschool science and who are at ease with quantities such as the temperature of a fluid or the pressure within such a medium. Beyond the primary audience of engineers, teachers, and students, the book is thus also addressed to walkers, hikers, navigators, and all nature lovers.

Author(s)  Abcha, Nizar;Pelinovsky, Efim;Mutabazi, Innocent 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVII, 229 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses the fascinating phenomena associated with nonlinear waves and spatiotemporal patterns. These appear almost everywhere in nature from sand bed forms to brain patterns, and yet their understanding still presents fundamental scientific challenges. The reader will learn here, in particular, about the current stateofthe art and new results in: Nonlinear water waves: resonance, solitons, focusing, BoseEinstein condensation, as well as and their relevance for the sea environment (seawind interaction, sand bed forms, fiber clustering) Pattern formation in nonequilibrium media: soap films, chimera patterns in oscillating media, viscoelastic CouetteTaylor flow, flow in the wake behind a heated cylinder, other pattern formation. The editors and authors dedicate this book to the memory of Alexander Ezersky, Professor of Fluid Mechanics at the University of Caen Normandie (France) from September 2007 to July 2016. Before 2007, he had served as a Senior Scientist at the Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Nizhny Novgorod (Russia). The chapters have been written by leading scientists in Nonlinear Physics, and the topics chosen so as to cover all the fields to which Prof. Ezersky himself contributed, by means of experimental, theoretical and numerical approaches. The volume will appeal to advanced students and researchers studying nonlinear waves and pattern dynamics, as well as other scientists interested in their applications in various natural media.

Title  Lyotropic Chromonic Liquid Crystals : From Viscoelastic Properties to Living Liquid Crystals 
Author(s)  Zhou, Shuang 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXIII, 95 p. 37 illus., 32 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis describes lyotropic chromonic liquid crystals (LCLCs) with exotic elastic and viscous properties. The first part of the thesis presents a thorough analysis of the elastic and viscous properties of LCLCs as functions of concentration, temperature and ionic contents, while the second part explores an active nematic system: living liquid crystals, which represent a combination of LCLC and living bacteria. LCLCs are an emerging class of liquid crystals that have shown profound connections to biological systems in two aspects. First, the assembly process of the chromonic aggregates is essentially the same as DNA oligomers and other supermolecular assemblies of biological origin. LCLCs thus provide an excellent model system for studying physical properties such as the elasticity and viscosity of these supramolecular assemblies. Second, LCLCs are biocompatible, thus serving as a unique anisotropic matrix to interface with living systems such as bacteria. This thesis deepens our understanding of both aspects. The noncovalent nature of chromonic aggregation produces the unique viscoelasticity to be found in LCLCs, which differs dramatically from that of traditional LCs. Anisotropic interactions between LCLCs and bacteria lead to fascinating phenomena such as the deformation of LCLCs with a characteristic wavelength determined by the elasticity of the LCLCs and the activity of the bacteria, orientationally controlled trajectories of bacteria and visualization of 24 nm flagella motion
