Title  Green???s Functions in Classical Physics 
Author(s)  Rother, Tom 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XI, 267 p. 45 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the Green???s function formalism in a basic way and demonstrates its usefulness for applications to several wellknown problems in classical physics which are usually solved not by this formalism but other approaches. The book bridges the gap between applications of the Green???s function formalism in quantum physics and classical physics. This book is written as an introduction for graduate students and researchers who want to become more familiar with the Green???s function formalism. In 1828 George Green has published an essay that was unfortunately sunken into oblivion shortly after its publication. It was rediscovered only after several years by the later Lord Kelvin. But since this time, using Green???s functions for solving partial differential equations in physics has become an important mathematical tool. While the conceptual and epistemological importance of these functions were essentially discovered and discussed in modern physics  especially in quantum field theory and quantum statistics  these aspects are rarely touched in classical physics. In doing it, this book provides an interesting and sometimes new point of view on several aspects and problems in classical physics, like the Kepler motion or the description of certain classical probability experiments in finite event spaces. A short outlook on quantum mechanical problems concludes this book

Title  Galileo and the Equations of Motion 
Author(s)  Boccaletti, Dino 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 175 p. 26 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is intended as a historical and critical study on the origin of the equations of motion as established in Newton's Principia. The central question that it aims to answer is whether it is indeed correct to ascribe to Galileo the inertia principle and the law of falling bodies. In order to accomplish this task, the study begins by considering theories on the motion of bodies from classical antiquity, and especially those of Aristotle. The theories developed during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance are then reviewed, with careful analysis of the contributions of, for example, the Merton and Parisian Schools and Galileo???s immediate predecessors, Tartaglia and Benedetti. Finally, Galileo???s work is examined in detail, starting from the early writings.?? Excerpts from individual works are presented, to allow the texts to speak for themselves, and then commented upon. The book provides historical evidence both for Galileo's dependence on his forerunners and for the major breakthroughs that he achieved. It will satisfy the curiosity of all who wish to know when and why certain laws have been credited to Galileo

Title  Lectures on Hyperhamiltonian Dynamics and Physical Applications 
Author(s)  Gaeta, Giuseppe;Rodr??guez, Miguel A 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 182 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the mathematical foundations of the theory of hyperhamiltonian dynamics, together with a discussion of physical applications. In addition, some open problems are discussed. Hyperhamiltonian mechanics represents a generalization of Hamiltonian mechanics, in which the role of the symplectic structure is taken by a hyperk??hler one (thus there are three K??hler/symplectic forms satisfying quaternionic relations). This has proved to be of use in the description of physical systems with spin, including those which do not admit a Hamiltonian formulation. The book is the first monograph on the subject, which has previously been treated only in research papers

Title  Relativity Matters : From Einstein's EMC2 to Laser Particle Acceleration and QuarkGluon Plasma 
Author(s)  Rafelski, Johann 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXV, 468 p. 85 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Rafelski presents Special Relativity in a language deemed accessible to students without any topical preparation  avoiding the burden of geometry, tensor calculus, and spacetime symmetries ??? and yet advancing in highly contemporary context all the way to research frontiers. Special Relativity is presented such that nothing remains a paradox or just apparent, but rather is explained. A text of similar character, content, and scope, has not been available before. This book describes Special Relativity when rigid material bodies are introduced describing the reality of body contraction; it shows the relevance of acceleration and the necessary evolution of the theoretical framework when acceleration is critical. This book also presents the evolving views of Einstein about the aether. In addition to a careful and elementary introduction to relativity complete with exercises, worked examples and many discussions, this volume connects to current research topics so that readers can explore Special Relativity from the foundation to the frontier. Johann Rafelski is a theoretical physicist working at The University of Arizona in Tucson, USA. Born in 1950 in Krakow, Poland, he received his Ph.D. with Walter Greiner at University Frankfurt, Germany in 1973. In 1977 Rafelski arrived at CERNGeneva, where with Rolf Hagedorn he developed the search for quarkgluon plasma in relativistic heavy ion collision as a novel research domain. He invented and developed the strangeness quark flavor as the signature of quarkgluon plasma, advancing the discovery of this new phase of primordial matter. Professor Rafelski also has held professional appointments at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago, the University of Frankfurt, the University of Cape Town, the University of ParisJussieu, and the Ecole Polytechnique. He has been a DFG Excellence Initiative Professor at LudwigMaximillian University Munich. In collaboration with researchers from the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris and ELIBeamlines in Prague he is using ultraintense lasers in nuclear and fundamental physics. Prof. Rafelski is the editor of the openaccess book: Melting Hadrons, Boiling Quarks  From Hagedorn Temperature to UltraRelativistic HeavyIon Collisions at CERN  With a Tribute to Rolf Hagedorn (Springer, 2016)

Title  Understanding Viscoelasticity : An Introduction to Rheology 
Author(s)  PhanThien, Nhan;MaiDuy, Nam 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 304 p. 74 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an introduction to viscoelasticity, in particular, to the theories of dilute polymer solutions and dilute suspensions of rigid particles in viscous and incompressible fluids. These theories are important, not just because they apply to practical problems of industrial interest, but because they form a solid theoretical base upon which mathematical techniques can be built, from which more complex theories can be constructed, to better mimic material behaviour. The emphasis of this book is not on the voluminous current topical research, but on the necessary tools to understand viscoelasticity. This is a compact book for a first year graduate course in viscoelasticity and modelling of viscoelastic multiphase fluids. The Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) is introduced as a particlebased method, relevant in modelling of complexstructured fluids. All the basic ideas in DPD are reviewed. The third edition has been updated and expanded with new results in the mesoscale modelling, links between the fluid modelling to its physical parameters and new matlab programs illustrating the modelling. Particlebased modelling techniques for complexstructure fluids are added together with some sample programs. A solution manual to the problems is included

Title  Modern Fluid Dynamics for Physics and Astrophysics 
Author(s)  Regev, Oded;Umurhan, Orkan M;Yecko, Philip A 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer New York, 2016. 
Description  XXIII, 680 p. 111 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book grew out of the need to provide students with a solid introduction to modern fluid dynamics. It offers a broad grounding in the underlying principles and techniques used, with some emphasis on applications in astrophysics and planetary science. The book comprehensively covers recent developments, methods and techniques, including, for example, new ideas on transitions to turbulence (via transiently growing stable linear modes), new approaches to turbulence (which remains the enigma of fluid dynamics), and the use of asymptotic approximation methods, which can give analytical or semianalytical results and complement fully numerical treatments. The authors also briefly discuss some important considerations to be taken into account when developing a numerical code for computer simulation of fluid flows. Although the text is populated throughout with examples and problems from the field of astrophysics and planetary science, the text is eminently suitable as a general introduction to fluid dynamics. It is assumed that the readers are mathematically equipped with a reasonable knowledge in analysis, including basics of ordinary and partial differential equations and a good command of vector calculus and linear algebra. Each chapter concludes with bibliographical notes in which the authors briefly discuss the chapter's essential literature and give recommendations for further, deeper reading. Included in each chapter are a number of problems, some of them relevant to astrophysics and planetary science. The book is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, but will also prove a valuable source of reference for established researchers.

Title  Classical Mechanics : Hamiltonian and Lagrangian Formalism 
Author(s)  Deriglazov, Alexei 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 445 p. 53 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The revised edition of this advanced text provides the reader with a solid grounding in the formalism of classical mechanics, underlying a number of powerful mathematical methods that are widely used in modern theoretical and mathematical physics. It reviews the fundamentals of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, and goes on to cover related topics such as canonical transformations, integral invariants, potential motion in geometric setting, symmetries, the Noether theorem and systems with constraints. While in some cases the formalism is developed beyond the traditional level adopted in the standard textbooks on classical mechanics, only elementary mathematical methods are used in the exposition of the material. New material for the revised edition includes additional sections on the EulerLagrange equation, the Cartan twoform in Lagrangian theory, and Newtonian equations of motion in context of general relativity. Also new for this edition is the inclusion of problem sets and solutions to aid in the understanding of the material presented. The mathematical constructions involved are explicitly described and explained, so the book is a good starting point for the student new to this field. Where possible, intuitive motivations are replaced by explicit proofs and direct computations, preserving the level of rigor that makes the book useful for more advanced students intending to work in one of the branches of the vast field of theoretical physics. To illustrate how classicalmechanics formalism works in other branches of theoretical physics, examples related to electrodynamics, as well as to relativistic and quantum mechanics, are included

Title  Problems in Classical and Quantum Mechanics : Extracting the Underlying Concepts 
Author(s)  Kelley, J. Daniel;Leventhal, Jacob J 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 368 p. 71 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a collection of problems intended to aid students in their graduate courses in physics and in preparing for the PhD qualifying exam. Thus, the included problems are of the type that could be on a qualifying exam or are problems that are meant to elucidate a principle that is important for the exam. Unlike other compilations of problems, the problems in this text are placed in the broader context of the subject. The goal of the book is to develop the problem solving skills of the reader to insure a complete understanding of the physics. Problems and solutions are presented in detail, and, additionally, their significance is discussed within the context of the physical principle(s) that they illustrate. The solution of the problem is only the beginning of the learning processit is in manipulating the solution and changing the parameters that a great deal of insight can be gleaned. This technique is referred to by the authors as "massaging the problem," and it is a technique that the authors have found to considerably increase the pedagogical value of any problem
