Hyberbolic Conservation Laws in Continuum Physics (Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften)
by:Constantine M. Dafermos
This masterly exposition of the mathematical theory of hyperbolic system laws brings out the intimate connection with continuum thermodynamics, emphasizing issues in which the analysis may reveal something about the physics and, in return, the underlying physical structure may direct and drive the analysis.

This masterly exposition of the mathematical theory of hyperbolic system laws brings out the intimate connection with continuum thermodynamics, emphasizing issues in which the analysis may reveal something about the physics and, in return, the underlying physical structure may direct and drive the analysis. The reader should have a certain mathematical sophistication and be familiar with (at least) the rudiments of the qualitative theory of PDE, whereas the required notions from continuum physics are introduced from scratch. The target group of readers would consist of (a) experts in the mathematical theory of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws who wish to learn about the connection with classical physics; (b) specialists in continuum mechanics; (c) experts in numerical analysis who wish to learn the underlying mathematical theory; and (d) analysts and graduate students who seek introduction to the theory of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws."
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc.
