Navier-Stokes Equations: On the Existence and the Search Method for Global Solutions
by Solomon I. Khmelnik
Publisher: MiC 2011
Number of pages: 105
In this book we formulate and prove the variational extremum principle for viscous incompressible and compressible fluid, from which principle follows that the Navier-Stokes equations represent the extremum conditions of a certain functional. We describe the method of seeking solution for these equations, which consists in moving along the gradient to this functional extremum.

The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.

These lectures cover aspects of solitons with focus on applications to the quantum dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories and string theory. The lectures consist of four sections, each dealing with a different soliton.
A book on common techniques of applied mathematics that are often used in theoretical physics. It may be accessible to anyone with beginning undergraduate training in mathematics and physics. It is useful for anyone wishing to study advanced Physics.
