This is a comprehensive and self-contained introduction to the mathematical problems of thermal convection. The book delineates the main ideas leading to the authors' variant of the energy method. These can be also applied to other variants of the energy method. The importance of the book lies in its focussing on the best concrete results known in the domain of fluid flows stability and in the systematic treatment of mathematical instruments used in order to reach them.

The calculus of variations is a classical area of mathematical analysis-300 years old-yet its myriad applications in science and technology continue to hold great interest and keep it an active area of research. These two volumes contain the refereed proceedings of the international conference on Calculus of Variations and Related Topics held at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in March 1998. The conference commemorated 300 years of work in the field and brought together many of its leading experts. The papers in the first volume focus on critical point theory and differential equations. The other volume deals with variational aspects of optimal control. Together they provide a unique opportunity to review the state-of-the-art of the calculus of variations, as presented by an international panel of masters in the field.

Mathematics in Science and Engineering, Volume 31: Topics in Optimization compiles contributions to the field of optimization of dynamical systems. This book is organized into two parts. Part 1 covers reported investigations that are based on variational techniques and constitute essentially extensions of the classical calculus of variations. The contributions to optimal control theory and its applications, where the arguments are primarily geometric in nature, are discussed in Part 2. This volume specifically discusses the inequalities in a variational problem, singular extremals, mathematical foundations of system optimization, and synthesis of optimal controls. This publication is recommended for both theoreticians and practitioners.
