Title  Magnetohydrodynamics and Fluid Dynamics: Action Principles and Conservation Laws 
Author(s)  Webb, Gary 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIV, 301 p. 22 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This text focuses on conservation laws in magnetohydrodynamics, gasdynamics and hydrodynamics. A grasp of new conservation laws is essential in fusion and space plasmas, as well as in geophysical fluid dynamics; they can be used to test numerical codes, or to reveal new aspects of the underlying physics, e.g., by identifying the time history of the fluid elements as an important key to understanding fluid vorticity or in investigating the stability of steady flows. The ten Galilean Lie point symmetries of the fundamental action discussed in this book give rise to the conservation of energy, momentum, angular momentum and center of mass conservation laws via Noether???s first theorem. The advected invariants are related to fluid relabeling symmetries ??? socalled diffeomorphisms associated with the Lagrangian map ??? and are obtained by applying the EulerPoincare approach to Noether???s second theorem. The book discusses several variants of helicity including kinetic helicity, cross helicity, magnetic helicity, Ertels??? theorem and potential vorticity, the Hollman invariant, and the Godbillon Vey invariant. The book develops the noncanonical Hamiltonian approach to MHD using the noncanonical Poisson bracket, while also refining the multisymplectic approach to ideal MHD and obtaining novel nonlocal conservation laws. It also briefly discusses Anco and Bluman???s direct method for deriving conservation laws. A range of examples is used to illustrate topological invariants in MHD and fluid dynamics, including the Hopf invariant, the Calugareanu invariant, the Taylor magnetic helicity reconnection hypothesis for magnetic fields in highly conducting plasmas, and the magnetic helicity of Alfv??n simple waves, MHD topological solitons, and the Parker Archimedean spiral magnetic field. The Lagrangian map is used to obtain a class of solutions for incompressible MHD. The AharonovBohm interpretation of magnetic helicity and cross helicity is discussed. In closing, examples of magnetosonic Nwaves are used to illustrate the role of the wave number and group velocity concepts for MHD waves. This selfcontained and pedagogical guide to the fundamentals will benefit postgraduatelevel newcomers and seasoned researchers alike

Title  Asymptotic Modelling of Fluid Flow Phenomena 
Author(s)  Zeytounian, Radyadour Kh 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2002. 
Description  XVIII, 550 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  for the fluctuations around the means but rather fluctuations, and appearing in the following incompressible system of equations: on any wall; at initial time, and are assumed known. This contribution arose from discussion with J. P. Guiraud on attempts to push forward our last cosigned paper (1986) and the main idea is to put a stochastic structure on fluctuations and to identify the large eddies with a part of the probability space. The Reynolds stresses are derived from a kind of MonteCarlo process on equations for fluctuations. Those are themselves modelled against a technique, using the Guiraud and Zeytounian (1986). The scheme consists in a set of like equations, considered as random, because they mimic the large eddy fluctuations. The Reynolds stresses are got from stochastic averaging over a family of their solutions. Asymptotics underlies the scheme, but in a rather loose hidden way. We explain this in relation with homogenizati localization processes (described within the ??3. 4 ofChapter 3). Ofcourse the mathematical well posedness of the scheme is not known and the numerics would be formidable! Whether this attempt will inspire researchers in the field of highly complex turbulent flows is not foreseeable and we have hope that the idea will prove useful

Title  Sedimentation and Sediment Transport : Proceedings of the Symposium held in Monte Verit??, Switzerland, from September 2nd ??? to September 6th, 2002 
Author(s)  Gyr, A;Kinzelbach, Wolfgang 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2003. 
Description  X, 271 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  It is evident, that for a number of ecological and technical problems in rivers and lakes a better knowledge of sediment transport and sedimentation is needed together with the ability to predict and simulate sediment behaviour. On the other hand, a stagnation of research in these topics could be observed in the last decades. At the Symposium an attempt was made to present new results in mathematics and natural sciences relevant for the sediment problem. New strategies were discussed to tackle the complexity of the problem. Basic theoretical research and laboratory experiments alone are incomplete without a feedback from field observations and measurements. For that reason wellknown researchers from both basic and engineering sciences were invited. Turbulence, nonlocal phenomena, stability, interaction, feedback systems, selforganization, twophase flow and chaotic processes, numerical simulations as well as measurement techniques and field results were the keywords of the Symposium. This proceedings are a good source for those interested in the state of the art

Title  Transport and Mixing in Geophysical Flows 
Author(s)  Weiss, Jeffrey B;Provenzale, Antonello 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2008. 
Description  IX, 262 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume collects a number of theoretical and experimental lectures on various aspects of transport and mixing of active and passive particles in geophysical flows. Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementary perspectives: in the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field  advection stetches and folds the concentration field and sharpens the gradients, while diffusion smoothes the field. In the Langrangian view, fluid parcels are followed around as they move with the flow, experiencing chaotic or stochastic motion. Both pictures are considered in the present lectures, with passive particles carried freely by the flow and reactive particles, where chemically or biologically induced reactions change the character of the particles

Title  Fronts, Waves and Vortices in Geophysical Flows 
Author(s)  Flor, JanBert 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  IX, 192 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Most well known structures in planetary atmospheres and the Earth???s oceans are jets or fronts interacting with vortices on a wide range of scales. The transition from one state to another, such as in unbalanced or adjustment flows, involves the generation of waves as well as the interaction of coherent structures with these waves. This book presents a fluid mechanics perspective to the dynamics of fronts and vortices and their interaction with waves in geophysical flows. It provides a basic physical background for modeling coherent structures in a geophysical context, and it gives essential information on advanced topics such as spontaneous wave emission and wavemomentum transfer in geophysical flows. Based on a set of lectures by leading specialists, this text is targeted at graduate students, researchers and engineers in geophysics and environmental fluid mechanics

Title  Analysis of Excitation and Ionization of Atoms and Molecules by Electron Impact 
Author(s)  Chaudhry, Afzal;Kleinpoppen, Hans 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer New York, 2011. 
Description  VIII, 232 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Analysis of Excitation and Ionization of Atoms and Molecules by Electron Impact, by Afzal Chaudhry and Hans Kleinpoppen, describes in detail the measurements of the partial and total doubly differential cross sections for the multipleionization of rare gas atoms by electron impact. These measurements show, among other trends, the role of Auger transitions in the production of multiply ionized atoms in the region where the incident electron energy is sufficient to produce inner shell ionization. Other processes like CosterKronig transitions and shake off also contribute towards increasing the charge of the ions. As discussed in the book, an incident electron having energy of 6 keV, for example, in a collision with xenon atom can remove up to nine electrons! The measurements of doubly differential cross sections for the dissociative and nondissociative ionization of hydrogen, sulfur dioxide and sulfur hexa fluoride molecular gases are also explored. The results of the measurements for the sulfur dioxide molecule provide strategies for ways in which this major atmospheric pollutant can be removed from the atmosphere by electron impact dissociation. The book also delves into the present measurements of the polarization parameters of the fluorescence radiation emitted by the excited atoms of sodium and potassium. It thoroughly investigates the excitation of helium atoms and the heliumlike alkaline earth metal atoms of calcium and strontium as well. This book invites the reader to learn more about the excitation and ionization of atoms and molecules by leading to the discovery of new processes and the excitement of surprising results. Hans Kleinpoppen is Editor of Polarized Electron/Polarized Photon Physics (Springer, 1995) and Selected Topics on Electron Physics (Springer, 1996)

Title  Space Weather, Environment and Societies 
Author(s)  Lilensten, Jean;Bornarel, Jean 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2006. 
Description  XIII, 242 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Our planet exists within a space environment affected by constantly changing solar atmosphere producing cosmic particles and electromagnetic waves. This "space weather" profoundly influences the performance of our technology because we primarily use two means for transmitting information and energy; namely, electromagnetic waves and electricity. On an everyday basis, we have developed methods to cope with the normal conditions. However, the sun remains a fiery star whose 'angry' outbursts can potentially destroy spacecrafts, kill astronauts, melt electricity transformers, stop trains, and generally wreak havoc with human activities. Space Weather is the developing field within astronomy that aims at predicting the sun???s violent activity and minimizing the impacts on our daily lives. Space Weather, Environment, and Societies explains why our technological societies are so dependent on solar activity and how the Sun disturbs the transmission of information and energy. Footnotes expand specific points and the appendices facilitate a more thorough command of the physics involved. This beautifully illustrated book is written for astronomy and nature enthusiasts as well as for the undergraduate/graduate level readers who would like to better master the physics of near space
