Lozi Mappings: Theory and Applications

This e-book is a complete number of identified effects concerning the Lozi map, a piecewise-affine model of the Henon map. Henon map is without doubt one of the such a lot studied examples in dynamical platforms and it draws loads of realization from researchers, but it is hard to investigate analytically. easier constitution of the Lozi map makes it greater for such research.

Mathematical Tools for the Study of the Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equations and
Related Models: 183 (Applied Mathematical Sciences)

The target of this self-contained booklet is two-fold. First, the reader is brought  to the modelling and  mathematical research utilized in fluid mechanics, in particular about the Navier-Stokes equations that is the fundamental version for the move of incompressible viscous fluids. Authors introduce mathematical instruments in order that the reader is ready to use them for learning many different kinds of partial differential equations, specifically nonlinear evolution difficulties.

Solutions of Nonlinear Schrӧdinger Systems (Springer Theses)

The lifestyles and qualitative houses of nontrivial recommendations for a few very important nonlinear Schrӧdinger structures were studied during this thesis. For a well known method coming up from nonlinear optics and Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC), within the subcritical case, qualitative houses of floor nation recommendations, together with an optimum parameter variety for the life, the distinctiveness and asymptotic behaviors, were investigated and the implications may possibly first of all partly resolution open questions raised by way of Ambrosetti, Colorado and Sirakov.

Geometry and Topology of Manifolds: 10th China-Japan Conference 2014 (Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics)

Because the 12 months 2000, now we have witnessed a number of impressive ends up in geometry that experience solved long-standing difficulties reminiscent of the Poincaré conjecture, the Yau–Tian–Donaldson conjecture, and the Willmore conjecture. There are nonetheless many very important and difficult unsolved difficulties together with, between others, the Strominger–Yau–Zaslow conjecture on reflect symmetry, the relative Yau–Tian–Donaldson conjecture in Kähler geometry, the Hopf conjecture, and the Yau conjecture at the first eigenvalue of an embedded minimum hypersurface of the field.
