Fractional Diffusion Equations and Anomalous Diffusion
Anomalous diffusion has been detected in a wide variety of scenarios, from fractal media, systems with memory, transport processes in porous media, to fluctuations of financial markets, tumour growth, and complex fluids. Providing a contemporary treatment of this process, this book examines the recent literature on anomalous diffusion and covers a rich class of problems in which surface effects are important, offering detailed mathematical tools of usual and fractional calculus for a wide audience of scientists and graduate students in physics, mathematics, chemistry and engineering. Including the basic mathematical tools needed to understand the rules for operating with the fractional derivatives and fractional differential equations, this self-contained text presents the possibility of using fractional diffusion equations with anomalous diffusion phenomena to propose powerful mathematical models for a large variety of fundamental and practical problems in a fast-growing field of research.

Power electronics is an enabling technology for almost all electrical applications. The field is growing rapidly because electrical devices need electronic circuits to process their energy. Elements of Power Electronic, the first book to discuss this subject in a conceptual framework, provides comprehensive coverage of power electronics at a level suitable for novices in the field. It aims to establish a fundamental engineering basis for power electronics analysis, design, and implementation. More than 160 examples and 350 chapter problems support the presented concepts. An extensive World Wide Web site http://power.ece.uiuc.edu/krein text includes additional examples, laboratory materials, and author contact.

Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity provides a lucid and thoroughly modern introduction to general relativity for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It introduces modern techniques and an accessible and lively writing style to what can often be a formal and intimidating subject. Readers are led from physics of flat spacetime (special relativity), through the intricacies of differential geometry and Einstein’s equations, and on to exciting applications such as black holes, gravitational radiation, and cosmology. Subtle points are illuminated throughout the text by careful and entertaining exposition. A straightforward and lucid approach, balancing mathematical rigor and physical insight, are hallmarks of this important text.
About the Author
J. Brian Knowles, PhD, DSc, now retired, remains professionally active with CEN Grenoble and KfK, where he compiled the results of European-wide MFCI experiments. In 1993, he visited the Russian Federation to discuss fast reactor collaboration as part of the European Commission’s Whole Core Accident Committee and was later a member of the OECD-CSNI working group on water reactor accident management. Dr. Knowles was also a UKAEA Section Head of Thermal Dynamics at Winfrith, where he was responsible for a comprehensive modular simulation of intact plant dynamics used in AGR and proposed fast reactor designs.
