Alternative Mathematical Theory of Non-equilibrium Phenomena by Dieter Straub

By Dieter Straub

Alternative Mathematical conception of Non-equilibrium Phenomena provides a wholly new theoretical method of advanced non-equilibrium phenomena, particularly Gibbs/Falk thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. This leading edge new conception allows inclusion of all nation variables and introduces a brand new vector-dissipation velocity-which results in invaluable restatements of momentum, the second one legislations, and tensors for the legislation of movement, friction, and warmth conduction. This application-oriented textual content is comparatively self-contained and is a superb guide-book for engineers with a robust curiosity in basics, or for pros utilizing utilized arithmetic and physics in engineering functions. This ebook emphasizes macroscopic phenomena, focusing in particular on gaseous states, although family members to liquid and crystalline states also are thought of. the writer provides a brand new substitute Continuum idea of Compressible Fluids (AT) which providesa qualitative description of the topic in predominantly actual phrases, minimizing the mathematical premises. The technique mentioned has functions in a variety of fields outdoors of physics in parts together with common method thought, TheoreticalEconomics, and Biophysics and medication. Key positive aspects * provides the 1st idea in a position to dealing with non-equilibria phenomena * bargains a unified thought of all branches of macroscopic physics * Considers a constant and uniform view of truth, supported through smooth arithmetic, resulting in effects diversified than these produced by way of classical theories * leads to a transformation of paradigms in physics, engineering, and typical philosophy

The Irrationals: A Story of the Numbers You Can't Count On

The traditional Greeks stumbled on them, however it wasn't until eventually the 19th century that irrational numbers have been correctly understood and carefully outlined, or even this day now not all their mysteries were published. within the Irrationals, the 1st well known and complete e-book at the topic, Julian Havil tells the tale of irrational numbers and the mathematicians who've tackled their demanding situations, from antiquity to the twenty-first century.

In mathematical circles. Quadrants I, II (MAA 2003)

For a few years, famed arithmetic historian and grasp instructor Howard Eves accrued tales and anecdotes approximately arithmetic and mathematicians, collecting them jointly in six Mathematical Circles books. millions of lecturers of arithmetic have learn those tales and anecdotes for his or her personal leisure and used them within the lecture room - so as to add leisure, to introduce a human aspect, to encourage the coed, and to forge a few hyperlinks of cultural heritage.

Mathematics of Digital Images: Creation, Compression, Restoration, Recognition

This significant revision of the author's well known e-book nonetheless makes a speciality of foundations and proofs, yet now indicates a shift clear of Topology to chance and knowledge concept (with Shannon's resource and channel encoding theorems) that are used all through. 3 very important components for the electronic revolution are tackled (compression, recovery and recognition), setting up not just what's precise, yet why, to facilitate schooling and learn.

Mathe ist doof !? Weshalb ganz vernünftige Menschen manchmal an Mathematik verzweifeln

Viele Menschen haben den Seufzer "Mathe ist doof! " schon ausgestoßen. Sind denn alle diese Leute dumm oder "mathematisch unbegabt"? Wie kaum ein anderes Fach spaltet Mathematik die Geister: Mathematik ist schön, ästhetisch, wunderbar logisch und überaus nützlich - sagen die einen. Die anderen empfinden Mathematik als eine dröge Quälerei mit abstrakten Symbolen und undurchsichtigen Formeln, die guy irgendwie in der Schule durchstehen muss - und dann vergessen kann.

Example text

It is focused on all the conservative and some nonconservative dynamical systems with an immense, but finite, number of degrees of freedom and especially their characteristic Lagrangians. These basis functions are fundamental to all mathematical solution procedures that are usually classified as variational principles. Most of the nonconservative dynamical (or irreversible) systems are physical manifestations that can be adequately described by nonlinear partial differential equations, together with appropriate initial and boundary conditions.

During this period, leading mathematicians dominated that scientific branch. Quality standards were established to treat physical problems adequately and offer appropriate mathematical tools for their solutions. Thus, it is not accidental that physics is accessible with mathematical description and interpretation; it is the result of the careful selection of the topics and the phenomena to be observed. Thus, theories of classical mechanics were developed, applied, generalized, and recast by nearly every distinguished scientist with well-founded knowledge in mathematics.

4. Traditionally, the conviction prevails that geometrical and physical quantities are basically different (Falk, 1990, p. 111). A deeply rooted custom originated 18 1. Physics Today: Perspectives in the supposition that a physical object is always embedded in space and time. This bias was supported by the idea that all "true" physical quantities— that is, the nongeometric quantities—are properties only of matter. As a consequence, each physical system is incorporated in space and characterized by a definite interior separated from other systems or parts of the otherwise "empty" space.
