Показать полностьюIn the course of the last fifty years, developments in nonsmooth analysis and nonsmooth mechanics have often been closely linked. The present book acts as an illustration of this. Its objective is twofold. It is of course intended to help to diffuse the recent results obtained by various renowned specialists. But there is an equal desire to pay homage to Jean Jacques Moreau, who is undoubtedly the most emblematic figure in the correlated, not to say dual, advances in these two fields.

The eighth book of Aristotle’s Physics is the culmination of his theory of nature. Показать полностьюThe eighth book of Aristotle’s Physics is the culmination of his theory of nature. He discusses not just physics, but the origins of the universe and the metaphysical foundations of cosmology and physical science. He moves from the discussion of motion in the cosmos to the identification of a single source and regulating principle of all motion, and so argues for the existence of a first ‘unmoved mover’. Daniel Graham offers a clear, accurate new translation of this key text in the history of Western thought, and accompanies the translation with a careful philosophical commentary to guide the reader towards an understanding of the wealth of important and influential arguments and ideas that Aristotle puts forward.

It is written at a level which presumes a prior TUII year’s course in classieal physics, and aknowledge of elementary differential and integral calculus. The material disc ussed here includes probability, relativity, quantum mechanics, atomic physics, statistical mechanics, nuclear physics and elementary particles. A number of topics, especially in quantum mechanics, are presented in greater depth than is customary, in many cases, unique ways of presentation are given which greatly simplify the discussion of there topics. However, few of the developments require more mathematics than elementary caleculus and the algebra of complex numbers.

Показать полностьюSince the first edition of this book was published, there have been major improvements in symbolic mathematical languages such as MapleTM and MathematicaTM and this has opened up the possibility of solving considerably more complex and hence interesting and realistic elasticity problems as classroom examples. It also enables the student to focus on the formulation of the problem (e.g. the appropriate governing equations and boundary conditions) rather than on the algebraic manipulations, with a consequent improvement in insight into the subject and in motivation. During the past 10 years I have developed files in Maple and Mathematica to facilitate this process, notably electronic versions of the Tables in the present Chapters 19 and 20 and of the recurrence relations for generating spherical harmonics. One purpose of this new edition is to make this electronic material available to the reader through the Kluwer website www.elasticity.org. I hope that readers will make use of this resource and report back to me any aspects of the electronic material that could benefit from improvement or extension. Some hints about the use of this material are contained in Appendix A. Those who have never used Maple or Mathematica will find that it takes only a few hours of trial and error to learn how to write programs to solve boundary value problems in elasticity.

Показать полностьюThis is a book about classical physics. It is a book about the interpretation of physical phenomena on the large scale, when the particle nature of matter and radiation is secondary to the behavior of these particles in bulk, when their statistical as opposed to their individual properties are important and when their inherent graininess can be smoothed over. There are three different frameworks for the classical physical laws that scientists use, and correspondingly three different geometric arenas for the laws; cf. Fig. A.1). General relativity is the most accurate classical framework; it formulates the laws as geometric relationships in the arena of curved 4dimensional spacetime. Special relativity is the limit of general relativity in the complete absence of gravity; its arena is flat, 4 dimensional Minkowski spacetime. Newtonian physics is the limit of general relativity when (i) gravity is weak but not necessarily absent, (ii) relative speeds of particles and materials are small compared to the speed of light c, and (iii) all stresses (pressures) are small compared to the total density of massenergy; its arena is flat, 3dimensional Euclidean space with time separated off and made universal (by contrast with the framedependent time of relativity).

The concepts relevant to finite deformations, strains, rotations, their invariants, length, area, volume changes, compatibility conditions of strain, kinematics of continua, global and local balance laws, thermodynamics of continua, and constitutive theory are discussed concisely. The field equations are obtained for the exact nonlinear theory and the linear and quadratic theories. Chapter II deals with the propagation of singular surfaces. Geometrical, kinematical, and dynamical conditions are obtained and used for the study of shock waves and acceleration waves. In Chapter III we present the solution of various problems for the finite motions of elastic bodies: radial oscillations of cylinders and spheres and a discussion of the simple wave theory. Chapter IV is devoted to a study of small motions superimposed on large static deformations, a topic which is fundamental to stability theory. Appendices A and В on tensor analysis and the theory of characteristics provide the necessary background for study of Volume I.

ABOUT THE COURSE Physics2000 is a college level introductory physics course that begins with special relativity, ends with quantum mechanics, and inbetween covers the usual topics with a 20th century focus. Показать полностьюABOUT THE COURSE Physics2000 is a college level introductory physics course that begins with special relativity, ends with quantum mechanics, and inbetween covers the usual topics with a 20th century focus. This approach eliminates the great divide between classical and modern physics. BEGIN WITH SPECIAL RELATIVITY? Introducing Einstein’s special relativity in Chapter 1 means that you cannot rely on the usual mathematical techniques because no mathematics has been discussed yet. You have no choice but to focus on the physical ideas like the behavior of clocks and measurements of distance. The result is that you remove the mathematical fear factor usually associated with the subject. The only mathematics you need is the Pythagorean theorem. Compare this with the standard approach that introduces special relativity after discussing Maxwell’s equations. You have just introduced the students to integraldifferential equations, you hit them with complex historical arguments about the search for ether, and then present some really weird physics. Fortunately the course is about over, so that you do not have to expect the students to get it. END WITH QUANTUM MECHANICS? Once you have finished with Maxwell’s wave theory of light, you can proceed directly to the photoelectric effect, and the particle nature of light. You can do this because the students already know special relativity and are fully prepared to handle the simple mechanics of photons. The contrast between light waves and light particles sets the stage for a discussion of the particlewave nature of matter, which is at the heart of quantum mechanics. THE PHYSICS INBETWEEN Strobe photographs are used to provide an intuitive introduction to calculus concepts. Using Feynman’s recoil definition of mass, one sees from a simple thought experiment that mass must increase with velocity. The unity of electricity and magnetism is shown by deriving the magnetic force law as a relativistic correction to Coulomb’s law. The particlewave nature of matter plays an equally important role in the text as mechanics and E&M. THE MATHEMATICAL LEVEL? On the bookshelves you will find books with names like Physics for Poets, NonCalculus Physics, College Physics, University Physics, and Physics for Scientists and Engineers. These are texts with more or less the same content, written at progressively higher mathematical levels. We take a different approach. The idea is to present the physics in the clearest and simplest way possible, and let the companion text Calculus2000 introduce the more complex mathematics. Part 1 of Physics2000 uses physics to teach calculus. The definitions of velocity and acceleration are introduced through strobe photographs. The concept of taking the limit as delta t goes to zero corresponds to turning the strobe rate all the way up. In two chapters we compare the use of calculus and the use of the computer in handling physics problems. It is not until we get to potential energy, half way through Part 1 that we begin to rely on some previous knowledge of integration. Part 2, chapters on electricity and magnetism, do rely on calculus. The focus is on surface and line integrals, which are discussed in detail. All the calculus needed for the entire physics course is taught in Chapter 1 of Calculus2000. For the student with a more advanced mathematical background,Calculus2000 takes subjects in Physics2000 to a higher mathematical level. Complex variables are used in the discussion of circuit theory, the concepts of divergence and curl lead to new insight into Maxwell’s and Schrödinger’s equations, and the final chapters of Calculus2000 provide an introduction to fluid dynamics, covering such topics as the NavierStokes equation, the Helmholtz theorem, and quantum vortices.

It is evident that the classical KirchhoffLove theory of shells, as well as its refinements, are not applicable for describing such phenomena.

In this course the calcu calculus of variations is treated in a slightly modernized way by making full use of the language of vector spaces. Although the reader is supposed to be familiar with the fundamental notions of a Banach space and a Hilbert space, two sections are included in which these spaces are treated systematically in a condensed fashion. Much attention is paid to problems of theoretical mechanics including Noether’s theorem. Some elementary knowledge of boundary value problems, e.g. vibrating string and membrane, will enable the reader to appreciate more fully those parts of the text, in which applications of Hilbert space theory are made. Much material for this course is derived from the books by Gelfand and Fomin and by Michlin. In particular, the first book represents an easily readable modern introduction to the calculus of variations and its appli cations.

Показать полностьюIn the preparation of this second edition, the author has attempted to present as far as possible all new results known to him in the field of anisotropic plates which were of practical and theoretical interest. As a result the size of the book has increased considerably in comparison with the first edition. A chapter (VIII) has been added which is devoted to approximate methods of studying the stresses in anisotropic plates weakened by circular or elliptic openings. The same chapter considers some openings which resemble either an equilateral triangle or a square with rounded corners. In addition, approximate formulas are presented for the determination of stresses at these openings in plates deformed by arbitrary forces, and in particular, by tensile forces and bending moments. Stresses in plates with given elastic constants were also calculated. In addition, all other chapters are supplemented with new studies, as well as with results of practical interest which were not included in the first edition. For example, two new cases of bending of nonhomogeneous beams are added to Chapter III, which is devoted to straight and curved beams. Chapter IV is supplemented with problems dealing with the equilibrium of plates with parabolic and hyperbolic boundaries.

Показать полностьюThere are many monographs and textbooks addressing superconductivity from different angles. In spite of a large variety of explored approaches, one problem is always left aside. It is the balance of forces acting on the superconducting condensate. In the present book this question is central.

Показать полностьюThis book has emerged from the study of a new concept in material science that has been realized about a decade ago. Before that, I had been working for more than 20 years on conventional composites assembled in space and therefore adjusted to optimal material design in statics. The reason for that adjustment is that such composites appeared to become necessary participants in almost any optimal material design related to a state of equilibrium. A theoretical study of conventional composites has been very extensive over a long period of time. It received stimulation through many engineering applications, and some of the results have become a part of modern ndustrial technology. But again, the ordinary composites are all about statics, or, at the utmost, are related to control over the free vibration modes, a situation conceptually close to a static equilibrium.

This book is the first to offer a systematic account of the role of language in the development and interpretation of physics. Показать полностьюThis book is the first to offer a systematic account of the role of language in the development and interpretation of physics. An historicalconceptual analysis of the coevolution of mathematical and physical concepts leads to the classical/quatum interface. Bohrian orthodoxy stresses the indispensability of classical concepts and the functional role of mathematics. This book analyses ways of extending, and then going beyond this orthodoxy orthodoxy. Finally, the book analyzes how a revised interpretation of physics impacts on basic philosophical issues: conceptual revolutions, realism, and reductionism.

The prediction of elastic properties and of fracture strength of materials from their microstructureis an old but still active problem, implying many theoretical questions and important practical consequences. Показать полностьюThe prediction of elastic properties and of fracture strength of materials from their microstructureis an old but still active problem, implying many theoretical questions and important practical consequences. In both cases, statistical correlation functions deduced from the geometry by image analysis measurements, or obtained for specific models of random media, enter into the estimation of overall properties of materials.
