Variational Principle of Extremum in Electromechanical Systems by Solomon I. Khmelnik

Variational Principle of Extremum in Electromechanical Systems


Variational Principle of Extremum in Electromechanical Systems by Solomon I. Khmelnik

The variational principle of extremum is stated and proved for electromechanical systems of arbitrary configuration wherein the electromagnetic, mechanical, thermal hydraulic and other processes are going on. It is shown that for such systems there exists a pair of functionals with a global saddle point. For systems without electric circuits the suggested principle is equivalent to the minimum action principle. The principle is generalized for the systems described by partial differential equations, and in particular by Maxwell equations. A speedy universal algorithm for computation of such systems with arbitrary excitations is described. In this algorithm a method of searching for global saddle point simultaneously on two functionals is realized. The book contains numerous examples, including those presented as M-functions of the MATLAB system.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading is a wonderful way to expand my literary horizons, discover inspiring authors & get the chance to read new novels first. #loveit

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!
