Title  Rogue and Shock Waves in Nonlinear Dispersive Media 
Author(s)  Onorato, Miguel;Resitori, Stefania;Baronio, Fabio 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 370 p. 152 illus., 132 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained set of lectures addresses a gap in the literature by providing a systematic link between the theoretical foundations of the subject matter and cuttingedge applications in both geophysical fluid dynamics and nonlinear optics. Rogue and shock waves are phenomena that may occur in the propagation of waves in any nonlinear dispersive medium. Accordingly, they have been observed in disparate settings ??? as ocean waves, in nonlinear optics, in BoseEinstein condensates, and in plasmas. Rogue and dispersive shock waves are both characterized by the development of extremes: for the former, the wave amplitude becomes unusually large, while for the latter, gradients reach extreme values. Both aspects strongly influence the statistical properties of the wave propagation and are thus considered together here in terms of their underlying theoretical treatment. This book offers a selfcontained graduatelevel text intended as both an introduction and reference guide for a new generation of scientists working on rogue and shock wave phenomena across a broad range of fields in applied physics and geophysics

Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXIV, 694 p. 126 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is an introduction to the theory, practice, and implementation of the Lattice Boltzmann (LB) method, a powerful computational fluid dynamics method that is steadily gaining attention due to its simplicity, scalability, extensibility, and simple handling of complex geometries. The book contains chapters on the method's background, fundamental theory, advanced extensions, and implementation. To aid beginners, the most essential paragraphs in each chapter are highlighted, and the introductory chapters on various LB topics are frontloaded with special "in a nutshell" sections that condense the chapter's most important practical results. Together, these sections can be used to quickly get up and running with the method. Exercises are integrated throughout the text, and frequently asked questions about the method are dealt with in a special section at the beginning. In the book itself and through its web page, readers can find example codes showing how the LB method can be implemented efficiently on a variety of hardware platforms, including multicore processors, clusters, and graphics processing units. Students and scientists learning and using the LB method will appreciate the wealth of clearly presented and structured information in this volume

Title  Understanding Viscoelasticity : An Introduction to Rheology 
Author(s)  PhanThien, Nhan;MaiDuy, Nam 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 304 p. 74 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an introduction to viscoelasticity, in particular, to the theories of dilute polymer solutions and dilute suspensions of rigid particles in viscous and incompressible fluids. These theories are important, not just because they apply to practical problems of industrial interest, but because they form a solid theoretical base upon which mathematical techniques can be built, from which more complex theories can be constructed, to better mimic material behaviour. The emphasis of this book is not on the voluminous current topical research, but on the necessary tools to understand viscoelasticity. This is a compact book for a first year graduate course in viscoelasticity and modelling of viscoelastic multiphase fluids. The Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) is introduced as a particlebased method, relevant in modelling of complexstructured fluids. All the basic ideas in DPD are reviewed. The third edition has been updated and expanded with new results in the mesoscale modelling, links between the fluid modelling to its physical parameters and new matlab programs illustrating the modelling. Particlebased modelling techniques for complexstructure fluids are added together with some sample programs. A solution manual to the problems is included

Title  Study of Quark Gluon Plasma By Particle Correlations in Heavy Ion Collisions 
Author(s)  Yi, Li 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 83 p. 54 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis covers several important topics relevant to our understanding of quarkgluon plasma. It describes measurement of the thirdorder harmonic flow using twoparticle correlations and isolation of flow and nonflow contributions to particle correlations in goldgold collisions. The work also investigates longrange longitudinal correlations in small systems of deuterongold collisions. The former is related to the hydrodynamic transport properties of the quarkgluon plasma created in goldgold collisions. The latter pertains to the question whether hydrodynamics is applicable to small systems, such as deuterongold collisions, and whether the quarkgluon plasma can be formed in those smallsystem collisions. The work presented in this thesis was conducted with the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where the centerofmass energy of both collision systems was a factor of 100 larger than the rest mass of the colliding nuclei. The results contained in this thesis are highly relevant to our quest for deeper understanding of quantum chromodynamics. The results obtained challenge the interpretation of previous works from several other experiments on small systems, and provoke a fresh look at the physics of hydrodynamics and particle correlations pertinent to high energy nuclear collisions

Title  BuoyancyThermocapillary Convection of Volatile Fluids in Confined and Sealed Geometries 
Author(s)  Qin, Tongran 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 209 p. 63 illus., 29 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis represents the first systematic description of the twophase flow problem. Twophase flows of volatile fluids in confined geometries driven by an applied temperature gradient play an important role in a range of applications, including thermal management, such as heat pipes, thermosyphons, capillary pumped loops and other evaporative cooling devices. Previously, this problem has been addressed using a piecemeal approach that relied heavily on correlations and unproven assumptions, and the science and technology behind heat pipes have barely evolved in recent decades. The model introduced in this thesis, however, presents a comprehensive physically based description of both the liquid and the gas phase. The model has been implemented numerically and successfully validated against the available experimental data, and the numerical results are used to determine the key physical processes that control the heat and mass flow and describe the flow stability. One of the key contributions of this thesis work is the description of the role of noncondensables, such as air, on transport. In particular, it is shown that many of the assumptions used by current engineering models of evaporative cooling devices are based on experiments conducted at atmospheric pressures, and these assumptions break down partially or completely when most of the noncondensables are removed, requiring a new modeling approach presented in the thesis. Moreover, Numerical solutions are used to motivate and justify a simplified analytical description of transport in both the liquid and the gas layer, which can be used to describe flow stability and determine the critical Marangoni number and wavelength describing the onset of the convective pattern. As a result, the results presented in the thesis should be of interest both to engineers working in heat transfer and researchers interested in fluid dynamics and pattern formation

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.
