About this Item

Paperback. 525 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.2in. x 1.4in.This book concerns the numerical simulation of dynamical systems whose trajec- ries may not be differentiable everywhere. They are named nonsmooth dynamical systems. They make an important class of systems, rst because of the many app- cations in which nonsmooth models are useful, secondly because they give rise to new problems in various elds of science. Usually nonsmooth dynamical systems are represented as differential inclusions, complementarity systems, evolution va- ational inequalities, each of these classes itself being split into several subclasses. The book is divided into four parts, the rst three parts being sketched in Fig. 0. 1. The aim of the rst part is to present the main tools from mechanics and applied mathematics which are necessary to understand how nonsmooth dynamical systems may be numerically simulated in a reliable way. Many examples illustrate the th- retical results, and an emphasis is put on mechanical systems, as well as on electrical circuits (the so-called Filippovs systems are also examined in some detail, due to their importance in control applications). The second and third parts are dedicated to a detailed presentation of the numerical schemes. A fourth part is devoted to the presentation of the software platform Siconos. This book is not a textbook on - merical analysis of nonsmooth systems, in the sense that despite the main results of numerical analysis (convergence, order of consistency, etc. ) being presented, their proofs are not provided. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783642094644

Synopsis:

This book concerns the numerical simulation of dynamical systems whose trajec- ries may not be differentiable everywhere. They are named nonsmooth dynamical systems. They make an important class of systems, rst because of the many app- cations in which nonsmooth models are useful, secondly because they give rise to new problems in various elds of science. Usually nonsmooth dynamical systems are represented as differential inclusions, complementarity systems, evolution va- ational inequalities, each of these classes itself being split into several subclasses. The book is divided into four parts, the rst three parts being sketched in Fig. 0. 1. The aim of the rst part is to present the main tools from mechanics and applied mathematics which are necessary to understand how nonsmooth dynamical systems may be numerically simulated in a reliable way. Many examples illustrate the th- retical results, and an emphasis is put on mechanical systems, as well as on electrical circuits (the so-called Filippov?s systems are also examined in some detail, due to their importance in control applications). The second and third parts are dedicated to a detailed presentation of the numerical schemes. A fourth part is devoted to the presentation of the software platform Siconos. This book is not a textbook on - merical analysis of nonsmooth systems, in the sense that despite the main results of numerical analysis (convergence, order of consistency, etc. ) being presented, their proofs are not provided.

Review:

From the reviews:

"This monograph is a valuable and concise contribution to the numerics of nonsmooth ODEs ... . It is clearly designed for engineering applications in computational mechanics, and the main concern is the discussion of the construction of algorithms and their properties ... . written in a formal mathematical style with precise definitions, followed by results stated as Lemma, Proposition, or Theorem (and references to the literature for the proofs). This makes the overall work accessible for both, researchers in mechanics and in mathematics." (Christian Wieners, Zentralblatt für Angewandte Mathemtik und Mechanik, Vol. 88 (7), 2008)

?The present book is a research monograph with numerous information and references to original publications which gives to the book an encyclopaedic nature. ... parallel presentation of nonsmooth models in mechanics and electronics indicates that the mentioned effects will also be of interest for people working in mechatronics, microelectromechanics and multiphysics. The book is intended for graduate students and scientists doing research and development in mechanics and electrical engineering, designers of modern electromechanical devices, as well as to researchers from other scientific communities ... .? (Georgios E. Stavroulakis, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1173, 2009)
