Title  Nonlinear Stochastic Dynamic Engineering Systems : IUTAM Symposium Innsbruck/Igls, Austria, June 21???26, 1987 
Author(s)  Ziegler, Franz;Schueller, Gerhard I

Description  X, 541 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This symposium, held at Innsbruck/lgls on June 2126, 1987, is the fifth in a series of IUTAMSymposia on the application of stochastic methods in mechanics. The flrst two meetings in Warwick (1972) and Southhampton (1976) concentrated on the stability of stochastic dynamical systems and stochastic methods in dynamics, respectively. The third meeting in Frankfurt/Oder (1982) added aspects of reliability, while the fourth symposium in Stockholm (1984) dealt mainly with fatigue and fracture problems. The general theme of the present symposium is devoted to nonlinear stochastic dynamics of engineering systems which is believed of great importance for providing the tools for basic development and progress in various fields of mechanical, structural and aeronautical engineering, particularly in the areas of vehicle dynamics, multistorey structural dynamics, systems identiflcation, offshore structural dynamics, nuclear structures under various stochastic loading conditions (i. e. wind, earthquake, parametric excitations, etc. ). The contributions collected in this volume cover a wide spectrum of topics ranging from more theoretical, analytical and numerical treatment to practical application in various flelds. The truly international character of the meeting is accomplished by 42 contributions and 86 participants from as many as 19 countries and hence, contributed to the original idea of IUTAM, which is to foster international cooperation. It should be recalled, that, for getting this cooperation started again after the First World War, Theodore von Kanmm and Tullio LeviCivita called the world's flrst international (IUTAM) conference on hydro and aerornechanics in 1922 in Innsbruck, Austria

Title  Asymptotic Approaches in Nonlinear Dynamics : New Trends and Applications 
Author(s)  Awrejcewicz, Jan;Andrianov, Igor V;Manevitch, Leonid I 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1998. 
Description  XI, 310 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  How well is Nature simulated by the varied asymptotic models that imaginative scientists have invented? B. Birkhoff [52J This book deals with asymptotic methods in nonlinear dynamics. For the first time a detailed and systematic treatment of new asymptotic methods in combination with the Pade approximant method is presented. Most of the basic results included in this manuscript have not been treated but just mentioned in the literature. Providing a stateoftheart review of asymptotic applications, this book will prove useful as an introduction to the field for novices as well a reference for specialists. Asymptotic methods of solving mechanical and physical problems have been developed by many authors. For example, we can refer to the excel?? lent courses by A. Nayfeh [119122]' M. Van Dyke [154], E.J. Hinch [94J and many others [59, 66, 95, 109, 126, 155, 163, 50d, 59dJ. The main features of the monograph presented are: 1) it is devoted to the basic principles of asymp?? totics and its applications, and 2) it deals with both traditional approaches (such as regular and singular perturbations, averaging and homogenization, perturbations of the domain and boundary shape) and less widely used, new approaches such as one and twopoint Pade approximants, the distributional approach, and the method of boundary perturbations

Title  EUROPT ??? A European Initiative on Optimum Design Methods in Aerodynamics : Proceedings of the Brite/Euram Project Workshop ???Optimum Design in Areodynamics???, Barcelona, 1992

Abstract Note  This volume entitled "EUROPT  A European Initiative on Optimum Design in Aerodynamics" contains the results of the contributors during a workshop which took place in Barcelona in June 1992. This workshop was organized in the framp?? work of the Brite/Euram Aeronautics project "Optimum Design in Aerodynamics" (AERO890026). The project brought together nine European partners from Acade?? my and Industry with big experience in numerical optimization techniques applif'd to automated optimum design. The manuscript is directed to the optimization field and its goal is to provide the reader with useful numerical optimization techniques for optimum design in aerody?? namIcs. The field of numerical optimization techniques has been growing since the early 50's. But only recently, with the recent advent of powerful computers. it has yielded reallife applications that demonstrate industrial potential for design purposes. Nowadays, optimization is at the stage where those scientists and engineers who have worked in the field are to be paid to apply numerical optimization to automated design of real problems, namely aerodynamic shapes in Aerospace Engineering. For the above reasons, it was evident that a Workshop on numerical optimization techniques for the validation of optimum design methods would be of interest to most of the partners involved in the AEROS90026 project in order to compare in terms of accuracy and efficiency several optimization soft wares performed on the same selected flow problems

Title  New Trends in Nonlinear Dynamics and PatternForming Phenomena : The Geometry of Nonequilibrium 
Author(s)  Coullet, Pierre;Huerre, Patrick 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer US, 1990. 
Description  368 p. 259 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The basic aim of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on "New Trends in Nonlinear Dynamics and PatternForming Phenomena: The Geometry of Nonequilibrium" was to bring together researchers from various areas of physics to review and explore new ideas regarding the organisation of systems driven far from equilibrium. Such systems are characterized by a close relationship between broken spatial and tempo?? ral symmetries. The main topics of interest included pattern formation in chemical systems, materials and convection, traveling waves in binary fluids and liquid crystals, defects and their role in the disorganisa?? tion of structures, spatiotemporal intermittency, instabilities and largescale vortices in open flows, the mathematics of nonequilibrium systems, turbulence, and last but not least growth phenomena. Written contributions from participants have been grouped into chapters addressing these different areas. For additional clarity, the first chapter on pattern formation has been subdivided into sections. One of the main concerns was to focus on the unifying features between these diverse topics. The various scientific communities repre?? sented were encouraged to discuss and compare their approach so as to mutually benefit their respective fields. We hope that, to a large degree, these goals have been met and we thank all the participants for their efforts. The workshop was held in Cargese (Corsica, France) at the Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques from August 2nd to August 12th, 1988. We greatly thank Yves Pomeau and Daniel Walgraef who, as members of the organising committee, gave us valuable advice and encouragements

Title  Disorder and Fracture 
Author(s)  Charmet, J.C;Guyon, E;Roux, St??phane 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer US, 1990. 
Description  316 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Fracture, and particularly brittle fracture, is a good example of an instability. For a homogeneous solid, subjected to a uniform stress field, a crack may appear anywhere in the structure once the threshold stress is reached. However, once a crack has been nucleated in some place, further damage in the solid will in most cases propagate from the initial crack, and not somewhere else in the solid. In this sense fracture is an unstable process. This property makes the process extremely sensitive to any heterogeneity present in the medium, which selects the location of the first crack nucleated. In particular, fracture appears to be very sensitive to disorder, which can favor or impede local cracks. Therefore, in most realistic cases, a good description of fracture mechanics should include the effect of disorder. Recently this need has motivated work in this direction starting from the usual description of fracture mechanics. Parallel with this first trend, statistical physics underwent a very important development in the description of disordered systems. In particular, let us mention the emergence of some "new" concepts (such as fractals, scaling laws, finite size effects, and so on) in this field. However, many models considered were rather simple and well adapted to theoretical or numerical introduction into a complex body of problems. An example of this can be found in percolation theory. This area is now rather well understood and accurately described

Title  Impulse TimeDomain Electromagnetics of Continuous Media 
Author(s)  Shvartsburg, Alex

Description  XV, 168 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  tion of fields as a product of coordinatedependent and timedependent factors. The temporal variations of both media and fields are given by Fourier expansions. The successes of radiotechnique provided fertile ground for the dominance of sinusoidal waves in wave physics. This approach proved to be a powerful the?? oretical tool, since researchers were dealing with long trains of slowly varying quasimonochromatic waves. However, the success of this concept and the stan?? dardizability of related designs engendered a peculiar psychological hypnosis of Fourier electromagnetics, which took over as a model for wave phenomena in such crossdiscipIlnary areas of physics as optics and acoustics. Yet in providing a description of alternating fields, the presentation of such fields in terms of traveling waves with frequency wand wave number k is not a law of nature. One can see that such a presentation is not even a logical corollary of Maxwell's equations. What is more, this approach has become inadequate today for the analysis of fields excited by ultrashort transients in continuous media

Title  SelfOrganization and Associative Memory 
Author(s)  Kohonen, Teuvo 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1989. 
Description  XV, 312 p. 100 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  While the present edition is bibliographically the third one of Vol. 8 of the Springer Series in Information Sciences (IS 8), the book actually stems from Vol. 17 of the series Communication and Cybernetics (CC 17), entitled Associative Memory  A SystemTheoretical Approach, which appeared in 1977. That book was the first monograph on distributed associative memories, or "contentaddressable memories" as they are frequently called, especially in neuralnetworks research. This author, however, would like to reserve the term "contentaddressable memory" for certain more traditional constructs, the memory locations of which are selected by parallel search. Such devices are discussed in Vol. 1 of the Springer Series in Information Sciences, ContentAddressable Memories. This third edition of IS 8 is rather similar to the second one. Two new discussions have been added: one to the end of Chap. 5, and the other (the L VQ 2 algorithm) to the end of Chap. 7. Moreover, the convergence proof in Sect. 5.7.2 has been revised
