Nonlinear Dynamics: Between Linear and Impact Limits by Valery N. Pilipchuk

By Valery N. Pilipchuk

Nonlinear Dynamics represents a large interdisciplinary quarter of study facing quite a few “unusual” actual phenomena by way of nonlinear differential equations, discrete mappings, and similar mathematical algorithms. besides the fact that, with out actual alternative for the linear superposition precept, the equipment of Nonlinear Dynamics looked to be very different, person and technically complex. This ebook attempts to discover a standard flooring for nonlinear dynamic analyses in keeping with the lifestyles of strongly nonlinear yet very simple opposite numbers to the linear versions and instruments. it's proven that, because the subgroup of rotations, harmonic oscillators, and the normal complicated research generate linear and weakly nonlinear ways, then translations and reflections, effect oscillators, and hyperbolic (Clifford’s) algebras needs to supply upward push to a couple “quasi effect” technique. Such strongly nonlinear equipment are built in different chapters of this ebook in accordance with the assumption of non-smooth time substitutions. even though lots of the illustrations are in accordance with mechanical oscillators, the realm of purposes may well comprise additionally electrical, electro-mechanical, electrochemical and different actual versions producing strongly anharmonic temporal signs or spatial distributions. attainable purposes to periodic elastic constructions with non-smooth or discontinuous features are defined within the ultimate bankruptcy of the e-book.

Friction-Induced Vibrations and Self-Organization: Mechanics by Michael Nosonovsky

By Michael Nosonovsky

''Friction prompted instabilities can result in vibrations, that are usually bad (e.g., automobile brake squeal). however, they are beneficial (e.g., song sound generation). New fabrics able to withstand put on and heal minor harm (self-healing) in themselves will be constructed if the power for self-organization is embedded into the cloth. This publication emphasizes thermodynamic research of friction-induced

''This e-book isn't like a variety of different textbooks and monographs approximately friction. during this paintings we research quite a few results and manifestations of friction with a view to establish these houses of friction which are invariant for various friction mechanisms and hence represent the very essence of friction as a actual phenomenon. by means of doing that we're making the case that friction is a primary strength of nature whose houses may be deduced at once from the second one legislation of thermodynamics, instead of taken care of as a set of phenomenological unrelated results and empirical facts''--

Natural Philosophy of Galileo: Essays on the Origins and by Maurice Clavelin

By Maurice Clavelin

Galileo's paintings represents anything of a old singularity: he was once capable of create the recent technology of motion—classical mechanics, with its reliable mathematical foundation—almost singlehandedly, breaking together with his forebears and little prompted by means of his contemporaries. Maurice Clavelin's e-book assesses this singularity via rigorously examining the thoughts and techniques that Galileo utilized in the improvement of his new science.

Stillman Drake, who's one of the most well known gurus on Galileo, has acknowledged that "I have seldom learn a publication of this type with as a lot excitement and curiosity as I learn this one. there is not any query in my brain that it's the most vital contribution in its particular zone when you consider that 1939, whilst Alexandre Koyré released his Etudes Galiléennes. it's in no way an insignificant precis of the result of different scholars....The writer has made his personal research of the whole box defined by way of the identify of the ebook. the result's that of a clean breeze via a room that has no longer been aired out in a protracted time."

Reviewing the French version of the e-book in Isis, Professor Drake issues out the numerous adjustments in outlook among Koyré and Clavelin: "Clavelin brings into concentration a few very important issues respecting Galileo's personal tactics and achievements, and people of his forerunners, that decision for big revision of Koyré's conclusions. with no the slightest hint of a polemic tone, he reveals himself pressured to reject the Platonist interpretation of Galileo's technology and to reinterpret considerably the effect of medieval writings on its creation." additional, the advantage of Clavelin's paintings "lies now not within the denial of Aristotelian and medieval impression on Galileo's brain and work...but within the distinctive research of these influences....For the notion of the respects within which Galileo's case is exclusive, Clavelin has proven the main fruitful procedure but devised, simply as Koyré verified the main fruitful standpoint from which Galileo's case might be obvious to resemble these of his forebears and his successors."

The booklet opens with a evaluate of the normal conception of movement because it stood in Galileo's time: even though it was once according to Aristotelian doctrine. Clavelin strains vital amendments to this doctrine to fourteenth-century thinkers in Oxford and Paris. The ebook is going directly to study Galileo's personal technology of movement, first at the cosmological aircraft (in specific, his justification of the Copernican theory), then at the airplane of "rational" mechanics (the geometrized conception of the movement of heavy bodies). the ultimate bankruptcy, "Reason and Reality," is dedicated to Galileo's process and explanatory excellent.
