This book deals with blow-up of a solution to a system of PDEs that arise in practical situations. It begins with a relatively simple account of blow-up in systems of interaction-diffusion equations, then concentrates on mechanics. In particular it deals with the Euler equations, Navier--Stokes equations, models for glacier physics, Korteweg--de-Vries equations, and ferro-hydrodynamics. Blow-up is treated in Volterra equations, stressing how these equations arise in mechanics, e.g. in combustion theory. Further topics are chemotaxis in mathematical biology, change of type, from hyperbolic to elliptic, instability in soils, instability in sea ice dynamics, instability in pressure-dependent viscosity flow, and energy growth in parallel shear flows. It addresses graduate students and researchers in mechanics.

From the Back Cover:

This book deals with blow-up, or at least very rapid growth, of a solution to a system of partial differential equations that arise in practical physics situations. It begins with a relatively simple account of blow-up in systems of interaction-diffusion equations.
Then the book concentrates on mechanics applications. In particular it deals with the Euler equations, Navier--Stokes equations, models for glacier physics, Korteweg--de-Vries equations, and ferro-hydrodynamics. Blow-up is treated in Volterra equations, too, stressing how these equations arise in mechanics, e.g. in combustion theory. The novel topic of chemotaxis in mathematical biology is also presented. There is a chapter on change of type, from hyperbolic to elliptic, addressing three new and important applications: instability in soils, instability in sea ice dynamics, and also instability in pressure-dependent viscosity flow. Finally, the book includes an exposition of exciting work, very recent and on-going, dealing with rapid energy growth in parallel shear flows.
The book addresses graduate students as well as researchers in mechanics and applied mathematics.

Review:

From the reviews
"... this book contains a clear account of exciting works in various parts of science, concentrating on blow-up solutions of systems of partial differential equations."
(J. Cugnon in: Physicalia)
