Download Interfacial Wave Theory of Pattern Formation by Jian-Jun Xu PDF

By Jian-Jun Xu

The steadiness mechanisms of a curved entrance and the choice of development formation in dendrite development and viscous fingering were long-standing primary topics within the components of condensed topic physics, fabric technology, crystal progress and fluid mechanics. This e-book reports the interfacial balance and development formation in dynamic structures clear of the equilibrium nation. particularly, it bargains with the 2 renowned prototype structures: dendrite progress in solidification and viscous fingering in Hele--Shaw circulate. It elucidates the main difficulties step-by-step and systematically derives their mathematical options at the foundation of the newly validated interfacial wave concept. ultimately, it conscientiously examines those effects via comparisons with the to be had experimental effects.

Download Entropy And Self-Organization In Multi-Agent Systems by Parunak H.V.D., Brueckner S. PDF

By Parunak H.V.D., Brueckner S.

Emergent self-organization in multi-agent platforms appears to be like to contradict the second one legislations of thermodynamics. This paradox has been defined by way of a coupling among the macro point that hosts self-organization (and an obvious relief in entropy), and the micro point (where random techniques enormously raise entropy). Metaphorically, the micro point serves as an entropy "sink. allowing total process entropy to extend whereas sequestering this raise from the interactions the place self-organization is wanted. We make this metaphor detailed via developing an easy instance of pheromone-based coordination, defining the way to degree the Shannon entropy on the macro (agent) and micro (pheromone) degrees, and displaying an entropy-based view of the coordination.

By Herbert Jr. Oertel, M. Böhle, J. Delfs, D. Hafermann, H. Holthoff

Dieses Buch wendet sich an Studenten der Ingenieurwissenschaften und Ingenieure der Raumfahrtindustrie und der Energieverfahrenstechnik. Es verkn?pft die klassischen Gebiete der Aerodynamik mit der Nichtgleichgewichts-Thermodynamik hei?er Gase. Am Beispiel des Wiedereintritts einer Raumkapsel in die Erdatmosph?re werden die aerothermodynamischen Grundlagen und numerischen Methoden zur Berechnung des Str?mungsfeldes der Raumkapsel im gaskinetischen und kontinuumsmechanischen Bereich der Wiedereintrittstrajektorie behandelt. Am Beispiel von Raumfahrtprojekten werden die Methoden entwickelt. Die Autoren sind anerkannte Spezialisten f?r dieses Fachgebiet.

Download Rheological Modelling: Thermodynamical and Statistical by Jose Casas-Vazquez, David Jou PDF

By Jose Casas-Vazquez, David Jou

The pedagogically provided lectures care for viscoelastic behaviour of fluids, the compatibility of rheological theories with nonequilibrium thermodynamics, fluids below shear, and polymer behaviour in answer and in organic structures. the most goals of the e-book are to emphasize the significance of the learn of rheological platforms for statistical physics and nonequilibrium thermodynamics and to give contemporary leads to rheological modelling. The publication can be a necessary resource for either scholars and researchers.
