› Find signed collectible books: 'Correlation Theory of Stationary and Related Random Functions: Supplementary Notes and References (Springer Series in Statistics)'
Correlation Theory of Stationary and Related Random Functions is an elementary introduction to the most important part of the theory dealing only with the first and second moments of these functions. This theory is a significant part of modern probability theory and offers both intrinsic mathematical interest and many concrete and practical applications. Stationary random functions arise in connection with stationary time series which are so important in many areas of engineering and other applications. This book presents the theory in such a way that it can be understood by readers without specialized mathematical backgrounds, requiring only the knowledge of elementary calculus. The first volume in this two-volume exposition contains the main theory; the supplementary notes and references of the second volume consist of detailed discussions of more specialized questions, some more additional material (which assumes a more thorough mathematical background than the rest of the book) and numerous references to the extensive literature.

The theory of random functions is a very important and advanced part of modem probability theory, which is very interesting from the mathematical point of view and has many practical applications. In applications, one has to deal particularly often with the special case of stationary random functions. Such functions naturally arise when one considers a series of observations x(t) which depend on the real-valued or integer-valued ar gument t ("time") and do not undergo any systematic changes, but only fluctuate in a disordered manner about some constant mean level. Such a time series x(t) must naturally be described statistically, and in that case the stationary random function is the most appropriate statistical model. Stationary time series constantly occur in nearly all the areas of modem technology (in particular, in electrical and radio engineering, electronics, and automatic control) as well as in all the physical and geophysical sciences, in many other ap mechanics, economics, biology and medicine, and also plied fields. One of the important trends in the recent development of science and engineering is the ever-increasing role of the fluctuation phenomena associated with the stationary disordered time series. Moreover, at present, more general classes of random functions related to a class of stationary random functions have also been appearing quite often in various applied studies and hence have acquired great practical importance.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Introduction to the Theory of Stationary Random Functions'
This two-part treatment covers the general theory of stationary random functions and the Wiener-Kolmogorov theory of extrapolation and interpolation of random sequences and processes. Beginning with the simplest concepts, it covers the correlation function, the ergodic theorem, homogenous random fields, and general rational spectral densities, among other topics. Numerous examples appear throughout the text, with emphasis on the physical meaning of mathematical concepts. Although rigorous in its treatment, this is essentially an introduction, and the sole prerequisites are a rudimentary knowledge of probability and complex variable theory. 1962 edition.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Statistical Fluid Mechanics - vol 1: Mechanics of Turbulence'
This book, originally published in Moscow in 1965, is of interest to a wide scientific and technical audience, including geophysicists, meteorologists, aerodynamicists, chemical, mechanical, and civil engineersin short, all interested in the fundamental problems of flow, mass, and heat transfer. The authors deal with the theory of hydrodynamic instability and the development of turbulence, the application of dimensional analysis, and the theory of similarity to turbulent flow in pipes, ducts, and boundary layers, as well as free turbulence. They discuss semiempirical theories of turbulence, develop the similarity theory for turbulence in nonhomogeneous media, and present Lagrangian characteristics of turbulence and the theory of turbulent diffusion. Every effort has been made to present a wealth of experimental material; a large number of examples are drawn from physics of the atmosphere, permitting a generalization of results beyond that which can be obtained in the laboratory. Considerable attention has been given to Kolmogorov's theory of the local structure of developed turbulence and to the theory of turbulence in stratified media.
Contents: I. Laminar and Turbulent Motion: Equations of dynamics of a fluid and their most important consequences; Hydrodynamic instability and development of turbulence. II. Mathematical Methods for Describing Turbulence, Mean Values and Correlation Functions: Methods for taking mean; The fields of hydrodynamic characteristics regarded as stochastic fields; The moments of hydrodynamic fields. III. The Reynolds Equation and Semiempirical Theories of Turbulence: Turbulent flow in pipes and in the boundary layer; Turbulent energy balance and results derived from it. IV. Turbulence in a Medium Stratified with Respect to Temperature: Generalization of the theory of the logarithmic boundary layer to the case of a medium stratified with respect to temperature; Comparison of the theory with experimental data on the atmospheric layer near the ground. V. Motion of Particles (or Elements) in a Turbulent Stream: Lagrangian description of Turbulence; Turbulent diffusion.

"If ever a field needed a definitive book, it is the study of turbulence; if ever a book on turbulence could be called definitive, it is this book." Science
Written by two of Russia's most eminent and productive scientists working in the fields of turbulence, oceanography, and atmospheric physics, this two-volume survey is renowned for its clarity as well as its comprehensive treatment. Volume One begins with an outline of laminar and turbulent flow. The remainder of the book treats a variety of aspects of turbulence: its statistical and Lagrangian descriptions, shear flows near surfaces and free turbulence, the behavior of thermally stratified media, and diffusion.
Volume Two continues and concludes the presentation. Topics include spectral functions, homogeneous fields, isotropic random fields, isotropic turbulence, self-preservation hypotheses, spectral energy transfer, the Millionshchikov hypothesis, acceleration fields, equations for higher moments and the closure problem, and turbulence in a compressible fluid. Additional subjects include general concepts of the local structure of turbulence at high Reynolds numbers, the theory of fully developed turbulence, the propagation of electromagnetic and acoustic waves through a turbulent medium, and the twinkling of stars. The book closes with a discussion of the functional formulation of the problem of turbulence, presenting the equations for the characteristic functional and methods for their solution.
