Request a sales quote*Modeling and Analysis of Modern Fluids* helps researchers solve physical problems observed in fluid dynamics and related fields, such as heat and mass transfer, boundary layer phenomena, and numerical heat transfer. These problems are characterized by nonlinearity and large system dimensionality, and ‘exact’ solutions are impossible to provide using the conventional mixture of theoretical and analytical analysis with purely numerical methods.

To solve these complex problems, this work provides a toolkit of established and novel methods drawn from the literature across nonlinear approximation theory. It covers Padé approximation theory, embedded-parameters perturbation, Adomian decomposition, homotopy analysis, modified differential transformation, fractal theory, fractional calculus, fractional differential equations, as well as classical numerical techniques for solving nonlinear partial differential equations. In addition, 3D modeling and analysis are also covered in-depth.

- Systematically describes powerful approximation methods to solve nonlinear equations in fluid problems
- Includes novel developments in fractional order differential equations with fractal theory applied to fluids
- Features new methods, including Homotypy Approximation, embedded-parameter perturbation, and 3D models and analysis

Graduate students and 1^{st} year PhDs studying applied mathematics, mathematical aspects of fluid dynamics, and thermal science. The work will also appeal to a smaller number of mathematical-inclined engineers working in fluid dynamics
