Title  Dynamical Systems with Applications using MAPLE 
Author(s)  Lynch, Stephen 
Publication  Boston, MA, 1. Birkh??user Boston
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2001. 
Description  XIII, 399 p. 83 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  "The text treats a remarkable spectrum of topics and has a little for everyone. It can serve as an introduction to many of the topics of dynamical systems, and will help even the most jaded reader, such as this reviewer, enjoy some of the interactive aspects of studying dynamics using Maple." ???UK Nonlinear News (Review of First Edition) "The book will be useful for all kinds of dynamical systems courses???. [It] shows the power of using a computer algebra program to study dynamical systems, and, by giving so many worked examples, provides ample opportunity for experiments. ??? [It] is well written and a pleasure to read, which is helped by its attention to historical background." ???Mathematical Reviews (Review of First Edition) Since the first edition of this book was published in 2001, Maple??? has evolved from Maple V into Maple 13. Accordingly, this new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to include more applications, examples, and exercises, all with solutions; two new chapters on neural networks and simulation have also been added. There are also new sections on perturbation methods, normal forms, Gr??bner bases, and chaos synchronization. The work provides an introduction to the theory of dynamical systems with the aid of Maple. The author has emphasized breadth of coverage rather than fine detail, and theorems with proof are kept to a minimum. Some of the topics treated are scarcely covered elsewhere. Common themes such as bifurcation, bistability, chaos, instability, multistability, and periodicity run through several chapters. The book has a handson approach, using Maple as a pedagogical tool throughout. Maple worksheet files are listed at the end of each chapter, and along with commands, programs, and output may be viewed in color at the author???s website. Additional applications and further links of interest may be found at Maplesoft???s Application Center. Dynamical Systems with Applications using Maple is aimed at senior undergraduates, graduate students, and working scientists in various branches of applied mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering.

Title  Spinors in FourDimensional Spaces 
Author(s)  Torres del Castillo, Gerardo F 
Publication  Boston, MA, 1. Birkh??user Boston
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2010. 
Description  VIII, 177 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Without using the customary Clifford algebras frequently studied in connection with the representations of orthogonal groups, this book gives an elementary introduction to the twocomponent spinor formalism for fourdimensional spaces with any signature. Some of the useful applications of fourdimensional spinors, such as Yang???Mills theory, are derived in detail using illustrative examples. Key topics and features: ??? Uniform treatment of the spinor formalism for fourdimensional spaces of any signature, not only the usual signature (+ + + ???) employed in relativity ??? Examples taken from Riemannian geometry and special or general relativity are discussed in detail, emphasizing the usefulness of the twocomponent spinor formalism ??? Exercises in each chapter ??? The relationship of Clifford algebras and Dirac fourcomponent spinors is established ??? Applications of the twocomponent formalism, focusing mainly on general relativity, are presented in the context of actual computations Spinors in FourDimensional Spaces is aimed at graduate students and researchers in mathematical and theoretical physics interested in the applications of the twocomponent spinor formalism in any fourdimensional vector space or Riemannian manifold with a definite or indefinite metric tensor. This systematic and selfcontained book is suitable as a seminar text, a reference book, and a selfstudy guide. Reviews from the author's previous book, 3D Spinors, SpinWeighted Functions and their Applications: In summary???the book gathers much of what can be done with 3D spinors in an easytoread, selfcontained form designed for applications that will supplement many available spinor treatments. The book???should be appealing to graduate students and researchers in relativity and mathematical physics. ???Mathematical Reviews The present book provides an easytoread and unconventional presentation of the spinor formalism for threedimensional spaces with a definite or indefinite metric...Following a nice and descriptive introduction???the final chapter contains some applications of the formalism to general relativity. ???Monatshefte f??r Mathematik

Title  Flows of Reactive Fluids 
Author(s)  Prud'homme, Roger 
Publication  Boston, MA, 1. Birkh??user Boston
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2010. 
Description  XXIV, 476 p. 176 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The modeling of reactive flows has progressed mainly with advances in aerospace, which gave birth to a new science called aerothermochemistry, as well as through developments in chemical and process engineering. The methods employed, the phenomena investigated, and the aims of modeling differ for each field; however, in all cases, the results obtained have considerably enriched the working knowledge of reactive flows. This work examines basic concepts and methods necessary to study reactive flows and transfer phenomena in areas such as fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and chemistry. Specific topics covered include: * Equations of state * Transfer phenomena and chemical kinetics * Balance equations of reactive flows * Dimensionless numbers and similarity * Chemical reactors * Coupled phenomena * Turbulent flow concepts * Boundary layers and fluid layers * Reactive and nonreactive waves * Interface phenomena * Multiphase flow concepts The book presents tools of interest to graduate students, researchers in mathematical physics, and engineers who wish to investigate problems of reactive flows. Portions of the text may be used in courses on the physics of liquids or in seminars on mechanics

Title  Nonlinear Physics with Maple for Scientists and Engineers 
Author(s)  Enns, Richard;McGuire, George 
Publication  Boston, MA, 1. Birkh??user Boston
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 1997. 
Description  online resource 
Abstract Note  Philosophy of the Text This text has been designed to be an introductory survey of the basic concepts and applied mathematical methods of nonlinear science. Students in engineer?? ing, physics, chemistry, mathematics, computing science, and biology should be able to successfully use this text. In an effort to provide the students with a cutting edge approach to one of the most dynamic, often subtle, complex, and still rapidly evolving, areas of modern researchnonlinear physicswe have made extensive use of the symbolic, numeric, and plotting capabilities of Maple V Release 4 applied to examples from these disciplines. No prior knowledge of Maple or computer programming is assumed, the reader being gently introduced to Maple as an auxiliary tool as the concepts of nonlinear science are developed. The diskette which accompanies the text gives a wide variety of illustrative nonlinear examples solved with Maple. An accompanying laboratory manual of experimental activities keyed to the text allows the student the option of "hands on" experience in exploring nonlinear phenomena in the REAL world. Although the experiments are easy to perform, they give rise to experimental and theoretical complexities which are not to be underestimated. The Level of the Text The essential prerequisites for the first eight chapters of this text would nor?? mally be one semester of ordinary differential equations and an intermediate course in classical mechanics
