Ancient Loons: Stories Pingree Told Me

Philip J Davis
June 16, 2017

"Ah, I’m Pingree. We meet again. Splendid. Won’t you sit down?"I looked around David’s room. Short of the library stacks, I had never seen so many books piled into a single room. Where could I sit down? Every square inch of horizontal surface was covered. Books, papers, notes, manuscripts—all...

A Shock-Fitting Primer

Manuel D. Salas
June 14, 2017

A defining feature of nonlinear hyperbolic equations is the occurrence of shock waves. While the popular shock-capturing methods are easy to implement, shock-fitting techniques provide the most accurate results. A Shock-Fitting Primer presents the proper numerical treatment of shock waves and other...

Combinatorics of Compositions and Words

Silvia Heubach, Toufik Mansour
June 14, 2017

A One-Stop Source of Known Results, a Bibliography of Papers on the Subject, and Novel Research Directions Focusing on a very active area of research in the last decade, Combinatorics of Compositions and Words provides an introduction to the methods used in the combinatorics of pattern avoidance...

Stochastic Finance: A Numeraire Approach

Jan Vecer
June 14, 2017

Unlike much of the existing literature, Stochastic Finance: A Numeraire Approach treats price as a number of units of one asset needed for an acquisition of a unit of another asset instead of expressing prices in dollar terms exclusively. This numeraire approach leads to simpler pricing options for...

Discovering Evolution Equations with Applications: Volume 1-Deterministic Equations

Mark McKibben
June 14, 2017

Discovering Evolution Equations with Applications: Volume 1-Deterministic Equations provides an engaging, accessible account of core theoretical results of evolution equations in a way that gradually builds intuition and culminates in exploring active research. It gives nonspecialists, even those...

Essentials of Control Techniques and Theory

John Billingsley
June 14, 2017

Carefully separating the essential from the ornamental, Essentials of Control Techniques and Theory presents the nuts and bolts for designing a successful controller. It discusses the theory required to support the art of designing a working controller as well as the various aspects to convince a...

Decomposition Methods for Differential Equations: Theory and Applications

Juergen Geiser
June 14, 2017

Decomposition Methods for Differential Equations: Theory and Applications describes the analysis of numerical methods for evolution equations based on temporal and spatial decomposition methods. It covers real-life problems, the underlying decomposition and discretization, the stability and...

Numerical Techniques for Direct and Large-Eddy Simulations

Xi Jiang, Choi-Hong Lai
June 14, 2017

Compared to the traditional modeling of computational fluid dynamics, direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large-eddy simulation (LES) provide a very detailed solution of the flow field by offering enhanced capability in predicting the unsteady features of the flow field. In many cases, DNS can...

Advanced Differential Quadrature Methods

Zhi Zong, Yingyan Zhang
June 14, 2017

Modern Tools to Perform Numerical DifferentiationThe original direct differential quadrature (DQ) method has been known to fail for problems with strong nonlinearity and material discontinuity as well as for problems involving singularity, irregularity, and multiple scales. But now researchers in...

Risk Monetization: Converting Threats and Opportunities into Impact on Project Value

Glenn R. Koller
June 14, 2017

Risk Monetization: Converting Threats and Opportunities into Impact on Project Value addresses the organizational, political, cultural, and technical issues related to implementing a successful risk assessment, management, and monetization process. Suitable for readers in any organization or area...

Optimization of Finite Dimensional Structures

Makoto Ohsaki
June 14, 2017

Originally developed for mechanical and aeronautical engineering, structural optimization is not so easily applied to civil and architectural engineering, as structures in these fields are not mass products, but more often unique structures planned in accordance with specific design requirements....
