The book serves both as a reference for various scaled models with corresponding dimensionless numbers, and as a resource for learning the art of scaling. A special feature of the book is the emphasis on how to create software for scaled models, based on existing software for unscaled models. Scaling (or non-dimensionalization) is a mathematical technique that greatly simplifies the setting of input parameters in numerical simulations. Moreover, scaling enhances the understanding of how different physical processes interact in a differential equation model. Compared to the existing literature, where the topic of scaling is frequently encountered, but very often in only a brief and shallow setting, the present book gives much more thorough explanations of how to reason about finding the right scales. This process is highly problem dependent, and therefore the book features a lot of worked examples, from very simple ODEs to systems of PDEs, especially from fluid mechanics. The text is easily accessible and example-driven. The first part on ODEs fits even a lower undergraduate level, while the most advanced multiphysics fluid mechanics examples target the graduate level. The scientific literature is full of scaled models, but in most of the cases, the scales are just stated without thorough mathematical reasoning. This book explains how the scales are found mathematically. This book will be a valuable read for anyone doing numerical simulations based on ordinary or partial differential equations.

Numerical Solution of Differential Equations is a 10-chapter text that provides the numerical solution and practical aspects of differential equations. After a brief overview of the fundamentals of differential equations, this book goes on presenting the principal useful discretization techniques and their theoretical aspects, along with geometrical and physical examples, mainly from continuum mechanics. Considerable chapters are devoted to the development of the techniques of the numerical solution of differential equations and their analysis. The remaining chapters explore the influential invention in computational mechanics-finite elements. Each chapter emphasizes the relationship among the analytic formulation of the physical event, the discretization techniques applied to it, the algebraic properties of the discrete systems created, and the properties of the digital computer. This book will be of great value to undergraduate and graduate mathematics and physics students.

This book is intended to serve as an introduction to the multidisciplinary ?eld of anomalous diffusion in complex systems such as turbulent plasma, convective rolls, zonal ?ow systems, stochastic magnetic ?elds, etc. In spite of its great importance, turbulent transport has received comparatively little treatment in published mo- graphs. This book attempts a comprehensive description of the scaling approach to turbulent diffusion. From the methodological point of view, the book focuses on the general use of correlation estimates, quasilinear equations, and continuous time random walk - proach. I provide a detailed structure of some derivations when they may be useful for more general purposes. Correlation methods are ?exible tools to obtain tra- port scalings that give priority to the richness of ingredients in a physical pr- lem. The mathematical description developed here is not meant to provide a set of “recipes” for hydrodynamical turbulence or plasma turbulence; rather, it serves to develop the reader’s physical intuition and understanding of the correlation mec- nisms involved.

An introduction to scientific computing for differential equations Introduction to Computation and Modeling for Differential Equations provides a unified and integrated view of numerical analysis, mathematical modeling in applications, and programming to solve differential equations, which is essential in problem-solving across many disciplines, such as engineering, physics, and economics. This book successfully introduces readers to the subject through a unique "Five-M" approach: Modeling, Mathematics, Methods, MATLAB, and Multiphysics. This approach facilitates a thorough understanding of how models are created and preprocessed mathematically with scaling, classification, and approximation, and it also illustrates how a problem is solved numerically using the appropriate mathematical methods. The book's approach of solving a problem with mathematical, numerical, and programming tools is unique and covers a wide array of topics, from mathematical modeling to implementing a working computer program. The author utilizes the principles and applications of scientific computing to solve problems involving: Ordinary differential equations Numerical methods for Initial Value Problems (IVPs) Numerical methods for Boundary Value Problems (BVPs) Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) Numerical methods for parabolic, elliptic, and hyperbolic PDEs Mathematical modeling with differential equations Numerical solution Finite difference and finite element methods Real-world examples from scientific and engineering applications including mechanics, fluid dynamics, solid mechanics, chemical engineering, electromagnetic field theory, and control theory are solved through the use of MATLAB and the interactive scientific computing program Comsol Multiphysics. Numerous illustrations aid in the visualization of the solutions, and a related Web site features demonstrations, solutions to problems, MATLAB programs, and additional data. Introduction to Computation and Modeling for Differential Equations is an ideal text for courses in differential equations, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, and numerical methods at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. The book also serves as a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in the fields of mathematics, engineering, and computer science who would like to refresh and revive their knowledge of the mathematical and numerical aspects as well as the applications of scientific computation.

Second Order Differential Equations presents a classical piece of theory concerning hypergeometric special functions as solutions of second-order linear differential equations. The theory is presented in an entirely self-contained way, starting with an introduction of the solution of the second-order differential equations and then focusingon the systematic treatment and classification of these solutions. Each chapter contains a set of problems which help reinforce the theory. Some of the preliminaries are covered in appendices at the end of the book, one of which provides an introduction to Poincaré-Perron theory, and the appendix also contains a new way of analyzing the asymptomatic behavior of solutions of differential equations. This textbook is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering interested in Ordinary and Partial Differntial Equations. A solutions manual is available online.

This is an introductory text, in two parts, on scaling limits and modelling in equations of mathematical physics. The first part is concerned with basic concepts of the kinetic theory of gases which is not only important in its own right but also as a prototype of a mathematical construct central to the theory of non-equilibrium phenomena in large systems. It also features a very readable historic survey of the field. The second part dwells on the role of integrable systems for modelling weakly nonlinear equations which contain the effects of both dispersion and nonlinearity. Starting with a historical introduction to the subject and a description of numerical techniques, it proceeds to a discussion of the derivation of the Korteweg de Vries and nonlinear Schrödinger equations, followed by a careful treatment of the inverse scattering theory for the Schrödinger operator. The book provides an up-to-date and detailed overview to this very active area of research and is intended as an accessible introduction for non-specialists and graduate students in mathematics, physics and engineering.

The Method of Intrinsic Scaling

When I started giving talks on regularity theory for degenerate and sin- lar parabolic equations, a ?xed-point in the conversation during the co?- break that usually followed the seminar was the apparent contrast between the beauty of the subject and its technical di?culty. I could not agree more on the beauty part but, most of the times, overwhelmingly failed to convince my audience that the technicalities were not all that hard to follow. As in many other instances, it was the fact that the results in the literature were eventually stated and proved in their most possible generality that made the whole subject seem inexpugnable. So when I had the chance of preparing a short course on the method of intrinsic scaling, I decided to present the theory from scratch for the simplest model case of the degenerate p-Laplace equation and to leave aside technical re?nements needed to deal with more general situations. The ?rst part of the notes you are about to read is the result of that e?ort: an introductory and self-containedapproachtointrinsicscaling,aimingatbringingtolightwhatis really essential in this powerful tool in the analysis of degenerate and singular equations. As another striking feature of the method is its pervasiveness in terms of the applications, in the second part of the book, intrinsic scaling is applied to several models arising from ?ows in porous media, chemotaxis and phase transitions.
