Mathematical Methods for Geophysics and Space Physics by William I. Newman

By William I. Newman

Graduate scholars within the typical sciences—including not just geophysics and house physics but in addition atmospheric and planetary physics, ocean sciences, and astronomy—need a broad-based mathematical toolbox to facilitate their study. moreover, they should survey a much wider array of mathematical equipment that, whereas outdoor their specific parts of craftsmanship, are vital in comparable ones. whereas it's unrealistic to anticipate them to boost an encyclopedic wisdom of all of the equipment which are in the market, they should understand how and the place to procure trustworthy and powerful insights into those broader parts. the following finally is a graduate textbook that gives those scholars with the mathematical talents they should achieve cutting-edge hugely interdisciplinary learn environment.

This authoritative and obtainable ebook covers every thing from the weather of vector and tensor research to dull differential equations, specific capabilities, and chaos and fractals. different subject matters comprise imperative transforms, advanced research, and inverse concept; partial differential equations of mathematical geophysics; chance, facts, and computational equipment; and lots more and plenty more.

Proven within the school room, Mathematical tools for Geophysics and area Physics beneficial properties a number of workouts all through in addition to feedback for additional reading.

  • Provides an authoritative and available advent to the subject
  • Covers vector and tensor research, traditional differential equations, integrals and approximations, Fourier transforms, diffusion and dispersion, sound waves and perturbation concept, randomness in information, and a number of different topics
  • Features a variety of workouts throughout
  • Ideal for college kids and researchers alike
  • An on-line representation package deal is out there to professors

Im Fokus: Sonnensystem: Eine Reise durch unsere kosmische Heimat (Naturwissenschaften im Fokus) (German Edition)

Das Sonnensystem ist unsere Heimat im Weltall. Alle Planeten und Monde in ihm entstanden gemeinsam aus einer „Urwolke“, sie sind damit gewissermaßen Geschwister. Aber genau wie diese besitzen auch die Planeten ganz unterschiedliche Charaktere und Eigenschaften. Wir Menschen haben gerade erst begonnen, diese faszinierende Vielfalt zu erkunden: vom rätselhaft dichten und alten Merkur über den Treibhausplaneten Venus, den roten Mars und die Gasriesen Jupiter und Saturn mit ihren zahlreichen Trabanten bis hin zu den geheimnisvollen Eisplaneten Uranus und Neptun.
