Item description for The Hamilton-Type Principle in Fluid Dynamics: Fundamentals and Applications to Magnetohydrodynamics, Thermodynamics, and Astrophysics by Angel Fierros Palacios...
The contents of this book in its English edition summarizes the basic re-search work accomplished by the author on the field of Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynaics (MHD), Classical Thermodynamics, and Astrophy-sics. Besides, it contains a section attached to each chapter with the title of Selected Topics. In these sections fine theoretical points are cleared up and a large number of illustrative problems are solved. This way the idea is to have readers who use this book as a text book as well as a research monography addressed to all those who study Theoretical Physics and who are interested in the analytical treatment of perfect and real fluids, as much as in the dynamic state of fluids electrically charged which flow in regions where there is a magnetic field, and also fluids at rest proper of Classical Thermodynamics. With this material we wish to facilitate the access to fundamental aspects of Fluid Dynamics, MHD, and Thermodynamics, and the application of these disciplines to Astrophysics. It is assumed that the reader is aqcuainted with Maxwells equations of Classical Electrodyna-mics, those of Hydrodynamics balance equations, and the fundamental postulates of Thermodynamics. A reasonable handling of the calculus of variations and the tensorial notation is required, as well as knowledge of the principles and methodology of Lagranges Analytical Mechanics. In general terms and from the view point of the required mathematics, the book is self-contained in the sense in which everything that is needed is clearly stated within the text.

Angel Fierros Palacios was born in March 1933 in Pochutla, Oaxaca, MA(c)xico. He studied Physics at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de MA(c)xico (UNAM), where he also obtained a Master degree and Ph. D. in Science. For many years he was Professor at the UNAM and a researcher at the Instituto Mexicano del PetrA3leo and at the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares. He also worked at different areas of the public administration such as the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, the Secre-tarA-a de EnergA-a, as well as the ComisiA3n Federal de Electricidad (CFE). He is the author of the project which originated the Instituto de Investiga-ciones ElA(c)ctricas (IIE) and also, he was General Director of the Museo TecnolA3gico de la CFE. Presently he is working at the IIE as Director de la DivisiA3n de EnergA-as Alternas.
