This booklet provides chosen themes in technological know-how and engineering from an applied-mathematics viewpoint. The defined typical, socioeconomic, and engineering phenomena are modeled by way of partial differential equations that relate nation variables similar to mass, pace, and effort to their spatial and temporal diversifications. as a rule, those equations are hugely nonlinear; in lots of instances they're structures, they usually signify demanding situations even for the main sleek and complex mathematical and numerical-analytic options. the chosen subject matters mirror the longtime medical pursuits of the writer. They contain flows of fluids and gases, granular-material flows, organic approaches resembling development formation on animal skins, kinetics of rarified gases, unfastened obstacles, semiconductor units, and socioeconomic procedures. every one subject is in brief brought in its medical or engineering context, via a presentation of the mathematical versions within the type of partial differential equations with a dialogue in their simple mathematical houses. the writer illustrates every one bankruptcy by way of a sequence of his personal high quality images, which show that partial differential equations are strong instruments for modeling a wide number of phenomena influencing our day-by-day lives.

During this e-book we've tried to collect a lot of the paintings that has been entire within the box which we loosely time period: Solitons and the Inverse Scattering rework. frequently, our technique has been to provide an explanation for the elemental mathematical principles via examples instead of via contemplating the main basic state of affairs.
This publication provides the fundamental ideas and up to date advancements of linear regulate issues of perturbations. The presentation matters either non-stop and discrete dynamical platforms. it truly is self-contained and illustrated via quite a few examples. From the contents: concept of nation observers Observability Observers of full-phase vectors for totally made up our minds linear platforms practical observers for totally made up our minds linear platforms Asymptotic observers for linear structures with uncertainty Observers for bilinear and discrete platforms
The trendy idea of linear differential structures dates from the Levinson Theorem of 1948. it is just in additional fresh years, even though, following the paintings of Harris and Lutz in 1974-7, that the importance and variety of purposes of the theory became favored. This e-book supplies the 1st coherent account of the vast advancements of the final 15 years.
