English | PDF | 2009 | 165 Pages | ISBN : 0387876820 | 2.17 MB
This book gives a user friendly tutorial to Fronts in Random Media, an interdisciplinary research topic, to senior undergraduates and graduate students in the mathematical sciences, physical sciences and engineering.
Fronts or interface motion occur in a wide range of scientific areas where the physical and chemical laws are expressed in terms of differential equations. Heterogeneities are always present in natural environments: fluid convection in combustion, porous structures, noise effects in material manufacturing to name a few.
