Acoustics: Basic Physics, Theory, and MethodsThe book is devoted to the very basis of acoustics and vibro-acoustics. The physics of the phenomena, the analytical methods and the modern numerical techniques are presented in a concise form. Many examples illustrate the fundamental problems and predictions (analytic or numerical) and are often compared to experiments. Some emphasis is put on the mathematical tools required by rigorous theory and reliable prediction methods.A series of practical problems, which reflect the content of each cha…

The Jazz of Physics: The Secret Link Between Music and the Structure of the UniverseMore than fifty years ago, John Coltrane drew the twelve musical notes in a circle and connected them by straight lines, forming a five-pointed star. Inspired by Einstein, Coltrane put physics and geometry at the core of his music. Physicist and jazz musician Stephon Alexander follows suit, using jazz to answer physics’ most vexing questions about the past and future of the universe. Following the great minds that first drew the links between music and physics-a list including Pythagoras, Kepler…

Basic Wave Mechanics: For Coastal and Ocean EngineersIntended for coastal engineers and marine scientists who desire to develop a fundamental physical understanding of ocean waves and be able to apply this knowledge to ocean and coastal analysis and design. Provides an introduction to the physical processes of ocean wave mechanics, an understanding of the basic techniques for wave analysis, techniques for practical calculation and prediction of waves and applied wave forecasting….

Modern Fluid Dynamics: Basic Theory and Selected Applications in Macro- and Micro-Fluidics (Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications)This textbook covers essentials of traditional and modern fluid dynamics, i. e. , the fundamentals of and basic applications in fluid mechanics and convection heat transfer with brief excursions into fluid-particle dynamics and solid mechanics. Specifically, it is suggested that the book can be used to enhance the knowledge base and skill level of engineering and physics students in macro-scale fluid mechanics (see Chaps. 1–5 and 10), followed by an int- ductory excursion into micro-scale flui…

Wave Turbulence (Lecture Notes in Physics)The widening spectrum of physical applications of wave turbulence theory ranges from plasma waves to Bose-Einstein condensates. Arising from lectures given by the author, this volume is structured as a graduate text and includes exercises and solutions….
