Qualitative Methods of Physical Kinetics and Hydrodynamics
Market: Graduate students and researchers in physical kinetics, hydrodynamics, and plasma and solid state physics. Vladimir Krainov has produced one of the few books in the field to concentrate on qualitative methods. He presents order of magnitude solutions for physical quantities in various nonequilibrium statistical processes as well as qualitative solutions of differential equations for macroscopic nonequilibrium processes in gases and other media. Covers topics including free convection, turbulence phenomena, sound propagation, and surface phenomena.
