Advances in kinetic theory and continuum mechanics: proceedings of a symposium held in honor of Professor Henri Cabannes at the University Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France, on 6 July 1990

Front Cover
The twenty-five papers in this volume, collected in honor of H. Cabannes, cover four areas: classical kinetic theory and fluid dynamics, discrete kinetic theory, applied fluid mechanics, and continuum mechanics. The passage from the kinetic approach to the continuum approach is emphasized in several contributions. The discrete kinetic theory, also discussed in this book, is at present a developing field. The chapter on applied fluid mechanics covers such diverse topics as hypersonic flows with chemical reactions, supersonic aircraft, magnetohydrodynamics, etc.
