High-Performance Computing of Big Data for Turbulence and Combustion

High-Performance Computing of Big Data for Turbulence and Combustion

This book provides state-of-art information on high-accuracy scientific computing and its future prospects, as applicable to the broad areas of fluid mechanics and combustion, and across all speed regimes. Beginning with the concepts of space-time discretization and dispersion relation in numerical computing, the foundations are laid for the efficient solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, wi...

Topics in Magnetohydrodynamic Topology, Reconnection and Stability Theory

Topics in Magnetohydrodynamic Topology, Reconnection and Stability Theory

The book presents an advanced but accessible overview of some of the most important sub-branches of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD): stability theory, magnetic topology, relaxation theory and magnetic reconnection. Although each of these subjects is often treated separately, in practical MHD applications they are normally inseparable. MHD is a highly active field of research.The book is written for ...

Advanced Procrustes Analysis Models in Photogrammetric Computer Vision

Advanced Procrustes Analysis Models in Photogrammetric Computer Vision

This book gives a comprehensive view of the developed procrustes models, including the isotropic, the generalized and the anisotropic variants. These represent original tools to perform, among others, the bundle block adjustment and the global registration of multiple 3D LiDAR point clouds. Moreover, the book also reports the recently derived total least squares solution of the anisotropic Proc...

Global Nonlinear Dynamics for Engineering Design and System Safety

Global Nonlinear Dynamics for Engineering Design and System Safety

This is the first book which exploits concepts and tools of global nonlinear dynamics for bridging the gap between theoretical and practical stability of systems/structures, and for possibly enhancing the engineering design in macro-, micro- and nano-mechanics. Addressed topics include complementing theoretical and practical stability to achieve load carrying capacity; dynamical integrity for a...
