Lautrup (The Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen) introduces the basic ideas of continuum physics to third-year undergraduate or more advanced students who have completed a second-year course in electromagnetism, but provides quick references to elementary material in appendices.
Introduced by a short communication on the taxonomy of time series, the research and review articles cover such topics as the bushes of normal modes as exact excitations in nonlinear dynamical systems with discrete symmetry, strongly nonlinear wave phenomena in restricted liquids and their mathematical description, surface effects in nonlinear extender systems in terms of slow relaxation and spontaneous emergence of localized coherent modes, phase-field models for non-isothermal transitions in continuum physics, suppression of chaos in coupled chaotic logistic models, and diffusion in the phase space of multidimensional Hamiltonian systems.
3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuum Physics, a privately held consultancy dedicated to the advancement of the science of continuum physics and the role and impact of time in human experience, today announced the launch of The Map of Reality website (themapofreality.
The goal of this short note is to describe the usage scenarios for the evolution equation contra balance equations and draw attention to a potentially serious gap in the theory of mesoscopic continuum physics.
of Copenhagen, Denmark) introduces the basic ideas and the derivation of the equations of continuum mechanics from Newtonian particle mechanics and is designed to be of use in a one-semester course on continuum physics for students of physics, especially geophysics and astrophysics, fields from which most of its examples are drawn.
This concept is well known from mesoscopic continuum physics for liquid crystals (where it was first introduced) and microcracks [4], [5: sec.
balances) in nonequilibrium thermodynamics is a mathematical necessity in the case of higher order weakly nonlocal constitutive state spaces--overlooked by Gurtin in [2]--and has a unifying power to understand the role of the Second Law in several seemingly different theories of continuum physics (see e.
