Variational and Extremum Principles in Macroscopic Systems
ISBN: 9780080444888 / Angielski / Twarda / 810 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 2225 dni roboczych. Recent years have seen a growing trend to derive models of macroscopic phenomena encountered in the fields of engineering, physics, chemistry, ecology, selforganisation theory and econophysics from various variational or extremum principles. Through the link between the integral extremum of a functional and the local extremum of a function (explicit, for example, in the Pontryagin's maximum principle variational and extremum principles are mutually related. Thus it makes sense to consider them within a common context. The main goal of Variational and Extremum Principles in...

Nonextensive Entropy : Interdisciplinary Applications
ISBN: 9780195159776 / Angielski / Miękka / 440 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. A great variety of complex phenomena in many scientific fields exhibit powerlaw behavior, reflecting a hierarchical or fractal structure. Many of these phenomena seem to be susceptible to description using approaches drawn from thermodynamics or statistical mechanics, particularly approaches involving the maximization of entropy and of BoltzmannGibbs statistical mechanics and standard laws in a natural way. The book addresses the interdisciplinary applications of these ideas, and also on various phenomena that could possibly be quantitatively describable in terms of these ideas.
