By Oliver M. O'Reilly

This ebook offers theories of deformable elastic strings and rods and their program to huge sessions of difficulties. Readers will achieve insights into the formula and research of versions for mechanical and organic platforms. Emphasis is put on how the stability legislation interaction with constitutive relatives to shape a suite of governing equations. For definite periods of difficulties, it's proven how a stability of fabric momentum can play a key function in forming the equations of movement. the 1st 1/2 the ebook is dedicated to the merely mechanical idea of a string and its purposes. the second one 1/2 the ebook is dedicated to rod theories, together with Euler’s idea of the elastica, Kirchhoff ’s idea of an elastic rod, and a number Cosserat rod theories. a number of vintage and up to date purposes of those rod theories are tested. supplemental chapters, the 1st on continuum mechanics of three-d continua and the second one on equipment from variational calculus, are incorporated to supply suitable historical past for students.

This e-book is suited to graduate-level classes at the dynamics of nonlinearly elastic rods and strings.

Beyond the Second Law: Entropy Production and Non-equilibrium Systems (Understanding Complex Systems)

The second one legislation, a cornerstone of thermodynamics, governs the typical path of dissipative, non-equilibrium procedures. however it says not anything approximately their real charges or the likelihood of fluctuations concerning the commonplace. This interdisciplinary ebook, written and peer-reviewed via overseas specialists, offers fresh advances within the look for new non-equilibrium ideas past the second one legislations, and their functions to quite a lot of platforms throughout physics, chemistry and biology.

Atlas of Physarum Computing

The slime mold Physarum polycephalum is a big phone obvious by way of the unaided eye. It behaves as an clever nonlinear spatially prolonged lively medium encapsulated in an elastic membrane. The cellphone optimises its development styles in configurations of attractants and repellents. This behaviour is interpreted as computation.
