Book Description

May 29, 2006 0521834414 978-0443051326
This introduction to the important interplay between nonlinear dynamics and statistical theories for geophysical flows is designed for a multi-disciplinary audience ranging from graduate students to senior researchers. Novel applications of information theory are utilized to simplify, unify, and compare the equilibrium statistical theories. Topics and related background concepts are introduced and developed through elementary examples and discussion throughout the text as they arise. No previous background in geophysical flows is needed to read the text.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Written with a firmly interdisciplinary perspective, this book is a valuable contribution to the fascinating intersection of applied mathematics and geophysical fluid dynamics. The authors are adept at illuminating and motivating rigorous mathematical analysis, qualitative models, and physical intuition through exceptionally lucid exposition and a rich collection of examples."
Christopher C. Hallstrom, Mathematical Reviews
