Title  HighPressure Shock Compression of Solids VII : Shock Waves and Extreme States of Matter 
Author(s)  Fortov, Vladimir E;Altshuler, L.V;Trunin, R.F;Funtikov, A.I 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2004. 
Description  XXII, 534 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In the mid1950s, experimental studies of condensed matter at ultrahigh pressures (i.e., high energy densities) started to appear in the literature, made possible by use of strong shock waves to alter the state of the material studied. Since then, laboratory and underground nuclear test results have provided equationofstate data for many chemical elements and compounds over a very wide range of thermodynamic states. They have also allowed scientists to determine high pressure melting curves, to discover previously unknown electronic transitions, to produce strongly nonideal plasmas, and to study phenomena that occur at much higher values of physical parameters than are attainable by other methods. The data are of fundamental scientific value, and knowledge of shockwave properties of materials and their equations of state over a wide range of the thermodynamic variables is necessary for the solution of many important scientific and technical problems. Shock Waves and Extreme States of Matter presents a detailed account of the development of Russian technology for conducting dynamic experiments to study material properties and behavior and some of the basic results so far obtained. The book consists of surveys prepared by the leading Russian scientists in the field. Experimental and theoretical results of the authors are presented and a generalization and systematization of the extensive material on the physics of shock waves and highpressure phenomena is provided. Topics discussed include: Development of dynamic research techniques for studying high pressure Problems of detonation of condensed explosives and creation highvelocityimpact devices Shock compression data that reach a maximum pressure of 10 TPa in solid and highly porous metals. Computational models and descriptions of experimental data include widerange Hugoniots for 80 substances Mechanisms, kinetics and thermodynamics of polymorphic transformations Experimental, theoretical, and computational investigations of the response of metals in the range of elastic???plastic deformation Optical temperature measurements on ionic crystals and liquid argon and xenon that permit development of improved equations of state of these materials and extend the melting curves of ionic crystals Quasiisentropic compression data for molecular hydrogen and deuterium and the parameters of a new EOS for the solid and liquid phases Both a semiempirical extension of van der Waals??? model oriented toward experimental data description of dense states of matter and an a priori chemical model of highly nonideal plasma produce widerange EOSs Fracture of large structures subjected to the action of dynamic forces

Title  LaminarTurbulent Transition : IUTAM Symposium, Sedona/AZ September 13 ??? 17, 1999 
Author(s)  Fasel, H.F;Saric, W.S 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000. 
Description  XXXIV, 686 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The origins of turbulent flow and the transition from laminar to turbulent flow are among the most important unsolved problems of fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. Besides being a fundamental question of fluid mechanics, there are any number of applications for information regarding transition location and the details of the subsequent turbulent flow. The JUT AM Symposium on LaminarTurbulent Transition, cohosted by Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, was held in Sedona, Arizona. Although four previous JUT AM Symposia bear the same appellation (Stuttgart 1979, Novosibirsk 1984, Toulouse 1989, and Sendai 1994) the topics that were emphasized at each were different and reflect the evolving nature of our understanding of the transition process. The major contributions of Stuttgart 1979 centered on nonlinear behavior and later stages of transition in twodimensional boundary layers. Stability of closed systems was also included with Taylor vortices in different geometries. The topics of Novosibirsk 1984 shifted to resonant wave interactions and secondary instabilities in boundary layers. Pipe and channelflow transition were discussed as model problems for the boundary layer. Investigations of free shear layers were presented and a heavy dose of supersonic papers appeared for the first time. The character of Toulouse 1989 was also different in that 3D boundary layers, numerical simulations, streamwise vortices, and foundation papers on receptivity were presented. Sendai 1994 saw a number of papers on swept wings and 3D boundary layers. Numerical simulations attacked a broader range of problems

Title  Observational Manifestation of Chaos in Astrophysical Objects : Invited talks for a workshop held in Moscow, Sternberg Astronomical Institute, 28???29 August 2000 
Author(s)  Fridman, Alexei;Marov, Mikhail Ya;Miller, Richard 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2002. 
Description  138 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  On August 2000 in the Lomonosov Moscow State University the first scientific conference dedicated to chaos in the real astronomical systems was held. The most prominent astrophysisists  specialist in the field of stochastic dynamics  attended the conference. A broad scope of the problems related to the observed manifes?? tations of chaotic motions in galactic and stellar objects, with the involvement of basic theory and numerical modeling, were addressed. The idea (not so obvious, as we believe, to many astrophysicists) was to show that, while great progress in the field of stochastic mechanics was accomplished, the science of chaos in actually observed systems is only just being born. Basically, the situation described prompted the organizers to hold the meeting in order to discuss chaotic processes in real systems. It seemed worthwhile to begin these introductory remarks with a brief descrip?? tion of some events that preceeded the conference. Since actually existing systems are the subject of the natural sciences, and in the latter experiments play the key role, we shall begin our account with the experimental results

Title  Nonlinear PDE???s in Condensed Matter and Reactive Flows 
Author(s)  Berestycki, Henri;Pomeau, Yves 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2002. 
Description  XI, 526 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Nonlinear partial differential equations abound in modern physics. The problems arising in these fields lead to fascinating questions and, at the same time, progress in understanding the mathematical structures is of great importance to the models. Nevertheless, activity in one of the approaches is not always sufficiently in touch with developments in the other field. The book presents the joint efforts of mathematicians and physicists involved in modelling reactive flows, in particular superconductivity and superfluidity. Certain contributions are fundamental to an understanding of such cuttingedge research topics as rotating BoseEinstein condensates, KolmogorovZakharov solutions for weak turbulence equations, and the propagation of fronts in heterogeneous media

Title  IUTAM Symposium on Geometry and Statistics of Turbulence : Proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium held at the Shonan International Village Center, Hayama (Kanagawaken), Japan, November 1???5, 1999 
Author(s)  Kambe, T;Nakano, T;Miyauchi, T 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2001. 
Description  XVI, 400 p. 316 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume contains the papers presented at the IUTAM Symposium on Geometry and Statistics of Turbulence, held in November 1999, at the Shonan International Village Center, Hayama (Kanagawaken), Japan. The Symposium was proposed in 1996, aiming at organizing concen?? trated discussions on current understanding of fluid turbulence with empha?? sis on the statistics and the underlying geometric structures. The decision of the General Assembly of International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM) to accept the proposal was greeted with enthusiasm. Turbulence is often characterized as having the properties of mixing, inter?? mittency, nonGaussian statistics, and so on. Interest is growing recently in how these properties are related to formation and evolution of struc?? tures. Note that the intermittency is meant for passive scalars as well as for turbulence velocity or rate of dissipation. There were eightyeight participants in the Symposium. They came from thirteen countries, and fiftyseven papers were presented. The presenta?? tions comprised a wide variety of fundamental subjects of mathematics, statistical analyses, physical models as well as engineering applications. Among the subjects discussed are (a) Degree of selfsimilarity in cascade, (b) Finescale structures and degree of Markovian property in turbulence, (c) Dynamics of vorticity and rates of strain, (d) Statistics associated with vortex structures, (e) Topology, structures and statistics of passive scalar advection, (f) Partial differential equations governing PDFs of velocity in?? crements, (g) Thermal turbulences, (h) Channel and pipe flow turbulences, and others

Title  A Computational Differential Geometry Approach to Grid Generation 
Author(s)  Liseikin, Vladimir D 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004. 
Description  XIV, 264 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Grid technology whose achievements have significant impact on the efficiency of numerical codes still remains a rapidly advancing field of computational and applied mathematics. New achievements are being added by the creation of more sophisticated techniques, modification of the available methods, and implementation of more subtle tools as well as the results of the theories of differential equations, calculas of variations, and Riemannian geometry being applied to the formulation of grid models and analysis of grid properties. The development of comprehensive differential and variational grid gen?? eration techniques reviewed in the monographs of J. F. Thompson, Z. U. A. Warsi, C. W. Mastin, P. Knupp, S. Steinberg, V. D. Liseikin has been largely based on a popular concept in accordance with which a grid model realizing the required grid properties should be formulated through a linear combina?? tion of basic and control grid operators with weights. A typical basic grid operator is the operator responsible for the wellposedness of the grid model and construction of unfolding grids, e. g. the Laplace equations (generalized Laplace equations for surfaces) or the functional of grid smoothness which produces fixed nonfolding grids while grid clustering is controlled by source terms in differential grid formulations or by an adaptation functional in vari?? ational models. However, such a formulation does not obey the fundamental invariance laws with respect to parameterizations of physical geometries. It frequently results in cumbersome governing grid equations whose choice of weight and control functions provide conflicting grid requirements
