By Allen T Chwang, Michelle H Teng, Daniel T Valentine

This quantity offers forty unique papers on fresh advances in different subject matters in engineering mechanics awarded on the Theodore Y-T Wu Symposium on Engineering Mechanics: a party of Professor Wu's medical contributions for his eightieth birthday. the celebrated members contain a number of individuals of the nationwide Academy of Engineers and the themes hide nonlinear water waves, swimming and flying in nature, biomechanics, facts research method, and propulsion hydrodynamics. The papers honor the numerous accomplishments of Professor Wu in Engineering technology at Caltech, really within the components of nonlinear waves, hydrodynamics, biomechanics and wave-structure interplay. They evaluation the current state-of-the-art of engineering mechanics, and chart the way forward for the sector from the perspective of civil engineering, biomechanics, geophysics, mechanical engineering, naval structure, ocean, and offshore engineering. the first goal of this ebook is to supply assistance and concept for these attracted to carrying on with to increase engineering mechanics into the twenty first century. to cite Professor Wu: "The worth of a e-book e-book lies in disseminating new wisdom attained with attempt and commitment from all those that take part, and in having the beneficial effects inside of prepared succeed in of scholars and researchers actively operating within the field."

Gauge Theories of the Strong and Electroweak Interaction

This textbook provides a accomplished precis of the gauge theories of the elemental interactions. The authors pressure the intimate connection among the fundamental experimental proof and the formula of gauge theories of the powerful and electroweak interplay. The options and technical instruments of quantum box conception are offered.

Non-Perturbative Field Theory: From Two Dimensional Conformal Field Theory to QCD in Four Dimensions

Offering a brand new viewpoint on quantum box conception, this ebook provides a pedagogical and up to date exposition of non-perturbative equipment in relativistic quantum box thought and introduces the reader to fashionable learn paintings in theoretical physics. It describes intimately non-perturbative equipment in quantum box conception, and explores - dimensional and 4- dimensional gauge dynamics utilizing these equipment.

Waves and Instabilities in Plasmas

This booklet offers the contents of a CISM direction on waves and instabilities in plasmas. For rookies and for complicated scientists a overview is given at the kingdom of data within the box. clients can receive a huge survey.

A Course in Field Theory

Generally classroom-tested, A path in box concept offers fabric for an introductory path for complex undergraduate and graduate scholars in physics. in keeping with the author’s path that he has been instructing for greater than twenty years, the textual content provides whole and special assurance of the center principles and theories in quantum box conception.

Example text

Dr. Wu loves the mixing of basic and applied research. He was often heard to say that the best pure research grows from efforts to solve applied problems, and that the best applied research to solve problems grows from intellectual curiosity. This philosophy of Engineering Science has guided me well in the development of my research. I dedicate this chapter to Theodore Yao-tsu Wu for his philosophy and ways of learning that have set up a model for my life long emulation. 2.
