An Introduction to Mathematical Modeling: A Course in by J. Tinsley Oden

By J. Tinsley Oden

A sleek method of mathematical modeling, that includes detailed purposes from the sector of mechanics

An creation to Mathematical Modeling: A direction in Mechanics is designed to survey the mathematical types that shape the rules of recent technology and accommodates examples that illustrate how the main winning types come up from simple ideas in glossy and classical mathematical physics. Written by means of a global authority on mathematical conception and computational mechanics, the ebook provides an account of continuum mechanics, electromagnetic box conception, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics for readers with diverse backgrounds in engineering, machine technology, arithmetic, and physics.

The writer streamlines a complete realizing of the subject in 3 sincerely equipped sections:

  • Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics introduces kinematics in addition to strength and pressure in deformable our bodies; mass and momentum; stability of linear and angular momentum; conservation of strength; and constitutive equations

  • Electromagnetic box conception and Quantum Mechanics incorporates a short account of electromagnetic wave concept and Maxwell's equations in addition to an introductory account of quantum mechanics with comparable themes together with ab initio tools and Spin and Pauli's principles

  • Statistical Mechanics offers an creation to statistical mechanics of structures in thermodynamic equilibrium in addition to continuum mechanics, quantum mechanics, and molecular dynamics

Each a part of the ebook concludes with workout units that let readers to check their knowing of the provided fabric. Key theorems and primary equations are highlighted all through, and an intensive bibliography outlines assets for extra study.

Extensively class-tested to make sure an obtainable presentation, An creation to Mathematical Modeling is a superb booklet for classes on introductory mathematical modeling and statistical mechanics on the upper-undergraduate and graduate degrees. The ebook additionally serves as a beneficial reference for pros operating within the parts of modeling and simulation, physics, and computational engineering.

Thermodynamic Tables to Accompany Modern Engineering Thermodynamics

Thermodynamic Tables to Accompany glossy Engineering Thermodynamics is a better half textual content to fashionable Engineering Thermodynamics via Robert T. Balmer. It includes Appendices—Appendix C gains forty thermodynamic tables, whereas Appendix D offers 6 thermodynamic charts. those charts and tables are supplied in a separate publication to provide teachers the pliability of permitting scholars to convey the tables into checks.

Thermodynamics: From Concepts to Applications, Second Edition

There are various thermodynamics texts out there, but so much supply a presentation that's at a degree too excessive for these new to the sphere. This moment version of Thermodynamics keeps to supply an obtainable advent to thermodynamics, which continues a suitable rigor to organize rookies for next, extra complex issues.

An Introduction to the Theory of Elasticity (Dover Books on Physics)

Due to severe examine job within the box of continuum mechanics, the educating of topics similar to elasticity conception has attained a excessive measure of readability and straightforwardness. This introductory quantity deals upper-level undergraduates a point of view according to smooth advancements that still takes under consideration the constrained mathematical instruments they're more likely to have at their disposal.

Computational Methods for Multiphase Flow

Due to high-speed desktops and complicated algorithms, the real box of modelling multiphase flows is a space of speedy progress. This one-stop account – now in paperback, with corrections from the 1st printing – is the correct option to become familiar with this subject, which has major functions in and nature.
