Abstract Note  This volume presents the Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Vibration Problems, September 58, 2011, Prague, Czech Republic. Since they started in 1990 the ICOVP conferences have matured into a reference platform reflecting the stateoftheart of dynamics in the broadest sense, bringing together scientists from different backgrounds who are actively working on vibrationrelated problems in theoretical, experimental and applied dynamics, thus facilitating a lively exchange of ideas, methods and results. Dynamics as a scientific discipline draws inspiration from a large variety of engineering areas, such as Mechanical and Civil Engineering, Aero and Space Technology, Wind and Earthquake Engineering and Transport and Building Machinery. Moreover, the basic research in dynamics nowadays includes many fields of theoretical physics and various interdisciplinary subject areas. ICOVP 2011 covers all branches of dynamics and offers the most uptodate results and developments in a highquality selection of 110 papers, with contributors and participants from 40 countries, representing a wellbalanced overview

Title  The Dynamics of Heat 
Author(s)  Fuchs, Hans U 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer New York, 1996. 
Description  XII, 713 p. 313 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Based on a course given to beginning physics, chemistry, and engineering students at the Winterthur Polytechnic Institute, this text approaches the fundamentals of thermodynamics from the view of continuum mechanics. By describing physical processes in terms of the flow and balance of physical quantities, this provides a unified approach to hydraulics, electricity, mechanics and thermodynamics. In this way it becomes clear that the entropy is the fundamental property that is transported in thermal process (what in lay terms would be called "heat"), and that the temperature is the corresponding potential. The resulting theory of the creation, flow, and balance of entropy provides the foundation of a dynamical theory of heat. Previous knowledge of thermodynamics is not required, but the reader should be familiar with basic electricity, mechanics, and chemistry and should have some knowledge of elementary calculus

Title  Selected Papers of J. M. Burgers 
Author(s)  Nieuwstadt, F.T;Steketee, J.A 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1995. 
Description  CIX, 650 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  J.M. Burgers (18951981) is regarded as one of the leading scientists in the field of fluid mechanics, contributing many important results, a number of which still bear his name. However, the work of this outstanding scientist was mostly published in the Proceedings and Transactions of The Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences, of which he was a distinguished member. Nowadays, this work is almost impossible to obtain through the usual library channels. Therefore, the editors have decided to reissue the most important work of J.M. Burgers, which gives the reader access to the original papers which led to important results, now known as the Burgers Equation, the Burgers Vector and the Burgers Vortex. Further, the book contains a biography of J.M. Burgers, which provides the reader with both information on his scientific life, as well as a rounded impression of the many activities which J.M. Burgers performed or was involved in outside his science

Title  The Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Continuous Media 
Author(s)  Silhavy, Miroslav 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1997. 
Description  XIV, 504 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the nonlinear theories of continuum thermomechanics. Throughout, the author emphasizes issues that are foundational in nature and seeks results common to materials of arbitrary symmetry. The central part of the book deals with thermoelastic bodies with heat conduction and viscosity, including the inviscid or ideal dissipationless bodies. A surprising variety of phenomena can be modeled within this framework. Moreover, the main ideas can be transferred into more complicated theories of materials with memory or microstructure. A large portion is an extension of Gibbs' ideas to bodies of general symmetry by the methods of the calculus of variations. A progress there is recent. The interplay between the convexity properties of the stored energy functions, the resulting equations, and the physics of the phenomena are leading themes

Title  Chaos and Quantum Chaos : Proceedings of the Eighth Chris Engelbrecht Summer School on Theoretical Physics, Held at Blydepoort, Eastern Transvaal, South Africa, 13???24 January 1992 
Author(s)  Heiss, W.Dieter 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1992. 
Description  XIV, 330 p. 43 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Until now the important concept of quantum chaos has remained somewhat ill defined. This volume tackles the ubiquitous borderline between classical andquantum mechanics, studying in particular the semiclassical limit of chaotic systems. The effects of disorder from dynamics and their relation to stochastic systems, quantum coherence effects in mesoscopic systems, and the relevant theoretical approaches are fruitfully combined in this volume. The major paradigms of what is called quantum chaos, random matrix theory and applications to condensed matter and nuclear physics are presented. Detailed discussions of experimental work with particular emphasis on atomic physics are included. The book is highly recommended for graduatestudent seminars

2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1964. 
Description  XII, 342 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Although the subject of wave propagation in solids has a long history, the classical theory of elastic waves having been developed in the nine?? teenth century by STOKES, POISSON, RAYLEIGH and KELVIN, the last two decades have seen a remarkable revival of interest in this subject among both theoreticians and experimenters. There' are a number of reasons for this; first, experimental methods for the generation and detection of high frequency mechanical waves have become available only with the advent of electronic techniques and of high speed photo?? graphic recording apparatus. Secondly, the appearan

Title  Impulse TimeDomain Electromagnetics of Continuous Media

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
