Dieses Buch behandelt zentrale Ideen und Konzepte aus den verschiedensten Bereichen der Physik, die in üblichen Darstellungen oft tief unter technischen Details begraben liegen. Zudem werden Themen diskutiert, die wegen ihrer Vielschichtigkeit in den Grundvorlesungen keinen angestammten Platz haben. Diese Schlüsselkonzepte werden jeweils in kurzen Essays und ohne formalen Ballast so dargestellt, dass das Wesentliche klar zum Vorschein kommt. Das Buch bietet damit gleichsam eine Landkarte und eine Schatzkiste für das weite Feld der Physik. Das Buch eignet sich sowohl für Studierende der Physik ab etwa dem dritten Semester und auch für Leser mit allgemeinem naturwissenschaftlich-mathematischem Hintergrund und besonderem Interesse an der Physik.

The study of the dynamics of fluids is a central theme of modern applied mathematics. It is used to model a vast range of physical phenomena and plays a vital role in science and engineering. This textbook provides a clear introduction to both the theory and application of fluid dynamics, and will be suitable for all undergraduates coming to the subject for the first time. Prerequisites are few: a basic knowledge of vector calculus, complex analysis, and simple methods for solving differential equations are all that is needed. Throughout, numerous exercises (with hints and answers) illustrate the main ideas and serve to consolidate the reader's understanding of the subject. The book's wide scope (including inviscid and viscous flows, waves in fluids, boundary layer flow, and instability in flow) and frequent references to experiments and the history of the subject, ensures that this book provides a comprehensive and absorbing introduction to the mathematical study of fluid behaviour.

This volume contains invited and refereed papers based upon presentations given in the IMA workshop on Computational Modeling in Biological Fluid Dynamics during January of 1999, which was part of the year-long program "Mathematics in Biology." This workshop brought together biologists, zoologists, engineers, and mathematicians working on a variety of issues in biological fluid dynamics. A unifying theme in biological fluid dynamics is the interaction of elastic boundaries with a surrounding fluid. These moving boundary problems, coupled with the equations of incompressible, viscuous fluid dynamics, pose formidable challenges to the computational scientist. In this volume, a variety of computational methods are presented, both in general terms and within the context of applications including ciliary beating, blood flow, and insect flight. Our hope is that this collection will allow others to become aware of and interested in the exciting accomplishments and challenges uncovered during this workshop.

"A complete guide to designing structures to better withstand the effects of fires of various growthsStructural Fire Loads: Theory and Principles combines the disciplines of structural engineering and fire protection engineering by offering a screening tool that can be used by engineers to perform preliminary assessments of fire as a load and its impact on structures. The book covers slow, medium, fast, and ultra-fast fire growth and fires in combination with seismic loads.Neither the 2009 IBC nor ASCE-7 considers fire a structural design load in buildings when prescriptive resistive design methods are used. However, the ICC Performance Code for Building and Facilities requires that the structural integrity of a building be evaluated and maintained to limit fire impact. This practical guide bridges the gap between structural engineering and fire protection engineering when fire is considered a design load.Structural Fire Loads features: Practical examples for fire protection and structural engineering design presented in a simple, step-by-step computational format Details on slow, medium, fast, and ultra-fast fire growth A Solutions Manual for equations presented in chapters 6 and 7 NIST Best Practices and Surveys for Fire Loads A single source that outlines how fire impacts structures Authoritative coverage: Overview of Current Practice; Structural Fire Load and Computer Models; Differential Equations and Assumptions; Simplifications of Differential Equations; Fire Load and Severity of Fires; Structural Analysis and Design"--
