Title  Wave Propagation in Solids and Fluids 
Author(s)  Davis, Julian L 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 1988. 
Description  X, 386 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The purpose of this volume is to present a clear and systematic account of the mathematical methods of wave phenomena in solids, gases, and water that will be readily accessible to physicists and engineers. The emphasis is on developing the necessary mathematical techniques, and on showing how these mathematical concepts can be effective in unifying the physics of wave propagation in a variety of physical settings: sound and shock waves in gases, water waves, and stress waves in solids. Nonlinear effects and asymptotic phenomena will be discussed. Wave propagation in continuous media (solid, liquid, or gas) has as its foundation the three basic conservation laws of physics: conservation of mass, momentum, and energy, which will be described in various sections of the book in their proper physical setting. These conservation laws are expressed either in the Lagrangian or the Eulerian representation depending on whether the boundaries are relatively fixed or moving. In any case, these laws of physics allow us to derive the "field equations" which are expressed as systems of partial differential equations. For wave propagation phenomena these equations are said to be "hyperbolic" and, in general, nonlinear in the sense of being "quasi linear" . We therefore attempt to determine the properties of a system of "quasi linear hyperbolic" partial differential equations which will allow us to calculate the displacement, velocity fields, etc

Title  Microscopic Structure and Dynamics of Liquids 
Author(s)  Dupuy, J 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 1978. 
Description  X, 524 p. 18 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  What did we have in mind when in May, 1976, we (Professor de Gennes, Dr. Tourand and ourselves) thought of a Summer School in the field of liquids? First, we wanted to present and discuss the new results that have been obtained recently, in particular at the high flux reactor of the Institut LaueLangevin in Grenoble since it became operational in 1972. In order to achieve this goal, the major part of this Summer School was devoted to an ex?? tensive presentation of the gen~ra1 concepts and methods of study?? ing this state of matter (timedependent correlation functions, molecular dynamics, intermolecular forces, spectroscopic tech?? niques ????????? ) and concentrated on a few specific systems which have seen significant development in the last few years, both theoret?? ically and experimentally. These systems are the different classes of simple liquids: metallic liquids, ionic liquids, simple molecu?? lar liquids and the new field of superionic conductors (solid electrolytes). Furthermore, we wanted to put some emphasis on a particular research area in the field of liquids, namely critical phenomena in fluids. This was chosen both because of our personal interest in this field and the major theoretical advances which have occurred in the last ten years. We also wished that some new powerful techniques or new theo?? retical approaches be presented at this School. Thus, picosecond laser techniques, theoretical calculations on dipolar fluids, and angular correlations in molecular liquids were the subject of specific seminars
