Title  An Introduction to Covariant Quantum Mechanics 
Author(s)  Jany??ka, Josef;Modugno, Marco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVIII, 838 p. 10 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book deals with an original contribution to the hypothetical missing link unifying the two fundamental branches of physics born in the twentieth century, General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. Namely, the book is devoted to a review of a "covariant approach" to Quantum Mechanics, along with several improvements and new results with respect to the previous related literature. The first part of the book deals with a covariant formulation of Galilean Classical Mechanics, which stands as a suitable background for covariant Quantum Mechanics. The second part deals with an introduction to covariant Quantum Mechanics. Further, in order to show how the presented covariant approach works in the framework of standard Classical Mechanics and standard Quantum Mechanics, the third part provides a detailed analysis of the standard Galilean spacetime, along with three dynamical classical and quantum examples. The appendix accounts for several nonstandard mathematical methods widely used in the body of the book

Title  Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics : For Scientists and Engineers 
Author(s)  Chassaing, Patrick 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXI, 570 p. 218 illus., 207 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides a coherent and structured overview of fluid mechanics, a discipline concerned with many natural phenomena and at the very heart of the most diversified industrial applications and human activities. The balance between phenomenological analysis, physical conceptualization and mathematical formulation serve both as a unifying educational marker and as a methodological guide to the three parts of the work. The thermomechanical motion equations of a homogeneous singlephase fluid are established, from which flow models (perfect fluid, viscous) and motion classes (isovolume, barotropic, irrotational, etc.) are derived. Incompressible, potential flows and compressible flows, both in an isentropic evolution and shock, of an ideal inviscid fluid are addressed in the second part. The viscous fluid is the subject of the last one, with the creeping motion regime and the laminar, dynamic and thermal boundary layer. Historical perspectives are included whenever they enrich the understanding of modern concepts. Many examples, chosen for their pedagogical relevance, are dealt with in exercises. The book is intended as a teaching tool for undergraduate students, wishing to acquire a first command of fluid mechanics, as well as graduates in advanced courses and engineers in other fields, concerned with completing what is sometimes a scattered body of knowledge

Title  Theory of Gyroscopic Effects for Rotating Objects : Gyroscopic Effects and Applications 
Author(s)  Usubamatov, Ryspek 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVIII, 291 p. 75 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights an analytical solution for the dynamics of axially rotating objects. It also presents the theory of gyroscopic effects, explaining their physics and using mathematical models of Euler???s form for the motion of movable spinning objects to demonstrate these effects. The major themes and approaches are represented by the spinning disc and the action of the system of interrelated inertial torques generated by the centrifugal and Coriolis forces, as well as the change in the angular momentum. The interrelation of inertial torques is based on the dependency of the angular velocities of the motions of the spinning objects around axes by the principle of mechanical energy conservation. These kinetically interrelated torques constitute the fundamental principles of the mechanical gyroscope theory that can be used for any rotating objects of different designs, like rings, cones, spheres, paraboloids, propellers, etc. Lastly, the mathematical models for the gyroscopic effects are validated by practical tests. The 2nd edition became necessary due to new development and corrections of mathematical expressions: It contains new chapters about the Tippe top inversion and inversion of the spinning object in an orbital flight and the boomerang aerodynamics

Title  Modern Special Relativity : A Student's Guide with Discussions and Examples 
Author(s)  Rafelski, Johann 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 458 p. 90 illus., 72 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents Special Relativity in a language accessible to students while avoiding the burdens of geometry, tensor calculus, spacetime symmetries, and the introduction of four vectors. The search for clarity in the fundamental questions about Relativity, the discussion of historical developments before and after 1905, the strong connection to current research topics, many solved examples and problems, and illustrations of the material in colloquial discussions are the most significant and original assets of this book. Importantly for firsttime students, Special Relativity is presented such that nothing needs to be called paradoxical or apparent; everything is explained. The content of this volume develops and builds on the book Relativity Matters (Springer, 2017). However, this presentation of Special Relativity does not require 4vector tools. The relevant material has been extended and reformulated, with additional examples and clarifications. This introduction of Special Relativity offers conceptual insights reaching well beyond the usual method of teaching relativity. It considers relevant developments after the discovery of General Relativity (which itself is not presented), and advances the reader into contemporary research fields. This presentation of Special Relativity is connected to present day research topics in particle, nuclear, and high intensity pulsed laser physics and is complemented by the current cosmological perspective. The conceptual reach of Special Relativity today extends significantly further compared even to a few decades ago. As the book progresses, the qualitative and historical introduction turns into a textbookstyle presentation with many detailed results derived in an explicit manner. The reader reaching the end of this text needs knowledge of classical mechanics, a good command of elementary algebra, basic knowledge of calculus, and introductory knowhow of electromagnetism

Title  Introduction to Orbital Perturbations 
Author(s)  Longuski, James M;Hoots, Felix R;Pollock IV, George E 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXII, 339 p. 38 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides details of the derivation of Lagrange's planetary equations and of the closely related Gauss's variational equations, thereby covering a sorely needed topic in existing literature. Analytical solutions can help verify the results of numerical work, giving one confidence that his or her analysis is correct. The authors???all experienced experts in astrodynamics and space missions???take on the massive derivation problem step by step in order to help readers identify and understand possible analytical solutions in their own endeavors. The stages are elementary yet rigorous; suggested student research project topics are provided. After deriving the variational equations, the authors apply them to many interesting problems, including the EarthMoon system, the effect of an oblate planet, the perturbation of Mercury's orbit due to General Relativity, and the perturbation due to atmospheric drag. Along the way, they introduce several useful techniques such as averaging, Poincar??'s method of small parameters, and variation of parameters. In the end, this textbook will help students, practicing engineers, and professionals across the fields of astrodynamics, astronomy, dynamics, physics, planetary science, spacecraft missions, and others

Title  Introduction to Unified Mechanics Theory with Applications 
Author(s)  Basaran, Cemal 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVIII, 519 p. 192 illus., 75 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This second edition adds new sections on derivation of dynamic equilibrium equations in unified mechanics theory and solution of an example, derivation of very high cycle fatigue thermodynamic fundamental equation and application/verification with two metal fatigue examples, derivation of thermodynamic fundamental equations for metal corrosion, examples of corrosion ??? fatigue interaction. There is also an example of ultrasonic vibration fatigue and one traditional tension/compression loading in elastic regime. While updated and augmented throughout, the book retains its description of the mathematical formulation and proof of the unified mechanics theory (UMT), which is based on the unification of Newton???s laws and the laws of thermodynamics. It also presents formulations and experimental verifications of the theory for thermal, mechanical, electrical, corrosion, chemical and fatigue loads, and it discusses why the original universal laws of motion proposed by Isaac Newton in 1687 are incomplete. The author provides concrete examples, such as how Newton???s second law, F = ma, gives the initial acceleration of a soccer ball kicked by a player, but does not tell us how and when the ball would come to a stop. Over the course of the text, Dr. Basaran illustrates that Newtonian mechanics does not account for the thermodynamic changes happening in a system over its usable lifetime. And in this context, this book explains how to design a system to perform its intended functions safely over its usable life time and predicts the expected lifetime of the system without using empirical models, a process currently done using Newtonian mechanics and empirical degradation/failure/fatigue models which are curvefit to test data. Written as a textbook suitable for upperlevel undergraduate mechanics courses, as well as first year graduate level courses, this book is the result of over 25 years of scientific activity with the contribution of dozens of scientists from around the world. The Book Presents a mechanics theory without curve fitting polynomials and equilibrium equations without a damping coefficient. Simulates of corrosion without phenomenological models and physicsbased prediction of fatigue life without test data. Explains interaction of corrosion and very high cycle fatigue from a thermodynamics perspective with lab verifications

Title  Elements of Classical Plasticity Theory 
Author(s)  ??chsner, Andreas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIII, 105 p. 62 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This monograph provides a compact introduction into the classical, i.e. rateindependent, plasticity theory. Starting from the engineering stressstrain diagram, the concept of elastic and elastoplastic material behavior is introduced, as well as the concept of uniaxial and multiaxial stress states. Continuum mechanical modeling in the elastoplastic range requires, in regards to the constitutive equation, in addition to the elastic law (e.g. Hooke???s law), a yield condition, a flow rule and a hardening rule. These basic equations are thoroughly introduced and explained for onedimensional stress states. Considering threedimensional plasticity, different sets of stress invariants to characterize the stress matrix and the decomposition of the stress matrix in its hydrostatic and deviatoric part are introduced. Furthermore, the concept of the yield condition, flow rule and hardening rule is generalized for multiaxial stress states. Some typical yield conditions are introduced and their graphical representation in different stress spaces is discussed in detail. The book concludes with an introduction in the elastoplastic finite element simulation of mechanical structures. In the context of numerical approximation methods, the socalled predictorcorrector methods are used to integrate the constitutive equations. This is again introduced in detail based on onedimensional stress states and afterwards generalized to the threedimensional case.

Title  Leonhard Euler and the Foundations of Celestial Mechanics 
Author(s)  Musielak, Dora 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXVIII, 208 p. 65 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The intention of this book is to shine a bright light on the intellectual context of Euler???s contributions to physics and mathematical astronomy. Leonhard Euler is one of the most important figures in the history of science, a blind genius who introduced mathematical concepts and many analytical tools to help us understand and describe the universe. Euler also made a monumental contribution to astronomy and orbital mechanics, developing what he called astronomia mechanica. Orbital mechanics of artificial satellites and spacecraft is based on Euler???s analysis of astromechanics. However, previous books have often neglected many of his discoveries in this field. For example, orbital mechanics texts refer to the five equilibrium points in the SunEarthMoon system as Lagrange points, failing to credit Euler who first derived the differential equations for the general nbody problem and who discovered the three collinear points in the threebody problem of celestial mechanics. These equilibrium points are essential today in space exploration; the James Webb Space Telescope (successor to the Hubble), for example, now orbits the Sun near L2, one of the collinear points of the SunEarthMoon system, while future missions to study the universe will place observatories in orbit around SunEarth and EarthMoon equilibrium points that should be properly called EulerLagrange points. In this book, the author uses Euler???s memoirs, correspondence, and other scholarly sources to explore how he established the mathematical groundwork for the rigorous study of motion in our Solar System. The reader will learn how he studied comets and eclipses, derived planetary orbits, and pioneered the study of planetary perturbations, and how, old and blind, Euler put forward the most advanced lunar theory of his time
