Chaotic transport in dynamical systems

Chaotic transport in dynamical systems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Provides a new and more realistic framework for describing the dynamics of non-linear systems. A number of issues arising in applied dynamical systems from the viewpoint of problems of phase space transport are raised in this monograph. Illustrating phase space transport problems arising in a variety of applications that can be modeled as time-periodic perturbations of planar Hamiltonian systems, the book begins with the study of transport in the associated two-dimensional Poincaré Map. This serves as a starting point for the further motivation of the transport issues through the development of ideas in a non-perturbative framework with generalizations to higher dimensions as well as more general time dependence. A timely and important contribution to those concerned with the applications of mathematics.

Book News Annotation:

Wiggins (applied mathematics, California Institute of Technology) gives a highly personal account of the mathematical modeling of transport between qualitatively different motions in dynamical systems, which occurs in a range of disciplines from fluid and celestial mechanics to control theory and chemistry.
