Download An Introduction to Riemannian Geometry: With Applications to by Leonor Godinho,José Natário PDF

By Leonor Godinho,José Natário

Unlike many different texts on differential geometry, this textbook additionally deals fascinating purposes to geometric mechanics and common relativity.

The first half is a concise and self-contained creation to the fundamentals of manifolds, differential types, metrics and curvature. the second one half experiences functions to mechanics and relativity together with the proofs of the Hawking and Penrose singularity theorems. it may be independently used for one-semester classes in both of those subjects.

The major rules are illustrated and additional built via a number of examples and over three hundred routines. distinctive recommendations are supplied for lots of of those routines, making An creation to Riemannian Geometry excellent for self-study.

Statistische Mechanik: Eine Einführung für Physiker, Chemiker und Materialwissenschaftler (German Edition)

Das Lehrbuch ist der optimale Einstieg in die aktuellen Fragen der Thermodynamik und Statistischer Physik. Dabei vollzieht es einen Bruckenschlag zwischen Physik, Chemie und den Materialwissenschaften. Didaktisch besonders ergiebig sind die zahlreichen Beispielaufgaben (mit Losungen), wobei den numerischen Losungen die entsprechenden MATHEMATICA-Programme beigefugt sind.

Continuum Models for Phase Transitions and Twinning in Crystals (Applied Mathematics)

Continuum versions for section Transitions and Twinning in Crystals offers the basics of a remarkably winning method of crystal thermomechanics. constructed during the last twenty years, it truly is in keeping with the mathematical concept of nonlinear thermoelasticity, during which a brand new point of view on fabric symmetry, encouraged via molecular theories, performs a valuable function.

Introduction to the Physics of Fluids and Solids

Creation to the Physics of Fluids and Solids provides the way to research continuum mechanics with out getting to know the other platforms. It discusses an creation to the foundations of fluid mechanics. one other concentration of analysis is the fluids in astrophysics. a few of the subject matters coated within the publication are the rotation of the galaxy, the idea that of balance, the fluids in movement, and the waves in fluids, the speculation of the tides, the vibrations of the earth, and nuclear fission.

Movement Equations 1: Location, Kinematics and Kinetics (Non-Deformable Solid Mechanics Set)

The set of books on Mechanical Engineering and strong Mechanics, of which this ebook is the 1st quantity, is a necessary software for these trying to boost a rigorous wisdom of the self-discipline, no matter if scholars, pros (in seek of an method of an issue they're dealing with), or someone else .
