In Ocean Travel and Cruising: A Cultural Analysis, noted author Arthur Asa Berger turns his critical eye to the phenomenon of ocean cruising. This academically solid yet reader-friendly book brings a multidisciplinary cultural studies approach to the subject, examining ocean cruising from economic, semiotic, sociological, psychoanalytic, and marketing perspectives, and offering insights not provided by the more traditional sociological approaches to the subject. You'll explore cruise demographics, the relationship between cruising and gender, the sociology of dining on cruise ships, hedonism and pleasure seeking, the "compulsion to cruise," consolidation in the industry, the exploitation of workers on cruise ships, and a great deal more.

The theory of traveling waves described by parabolic equations and systems is a rapidly developing branch of modern mathematics. This book presents a general picture of current results about wave solutions of parabolic systems, their existence, stability, and bifurcations. The main part of the book contains original approaches developed by the authors. Among these are a description of the long-term behavior of the solutions by systems of waves; construction of rotations of vector fields for noncompact operators describing wave solutions; a proof of the existence of waves by the Leray-Schauder method; local, global, and nonlinear stability analyses for some classes of systems; and a determination of the wave velocity by the minimax method and the method of successive approximations.The authors show that wide classes of reaction-diffusion systems can be reduced to so-called monotone and locally monotone systems. This fundamental result allows them to apply the theory to combustion and chemical kinetics. With introductory material accessible to nonmathematicians and a nearly complete bibliography of about 500 references, this book is an excellent resource on the subject.
Praise for the First Edition: <p> "This book is well conceived and well written. The author has succeeded in producing a text on nonlinear PDEs that is not only quite readable but also accessible to students from diverse backgrounds."<br> —SIAM Review <p> A practical introduction to nonlinear PDEs and their real-world applications <p> Now in a Second Edition, this popular book on nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) contains expanded coverage on the central topics of applied mathematics in an elementary, highly readable format and is accessible to students and researchers in the field of pure and applied mathematics. This book provides a new focus on the increasing use of mathematical applications in the life sciences, while also addressing key topics such as linear PDEs, first-order nonlinear PDEs, classical and weak solutions, shocks, hyperbolic systems, nonlinear diffusion, and elliptic equations. Unlike comparable books that typically only use formal proofs and theory to demonstrate results, An Introduction to Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, Second Edition takes a more practical approach to nonlinear PDEs by emphasizing how the results are used, why they are important, and how they are applied to real problems. <p> The intertwining relationship between mathematics and physical phenomena is discovered using detailed examples of applications across various areas such as biology, combustion, traffic flow, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, quantum mechanics, and the chemical reactor theory. New features of the Second Edition also include: <ul> <li> <p> Additional intermediate-level exercises that facilitate the development of advanced problem-solving skills <li> <p> New applications in the biological sciences, including age-structure, pattern formation, and the propagation of diseases <li> <p> An expanded bibliography that facilitates further investigation into specialized topics </ul> <p> With individual, self-contained chapters and a broad scope of coverage that offers instructors the flexibility to design courses to meet specific objectives, An Introduction to Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, Second Edition is an ideal text for applied mathematics courses at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It also serves as a valuable resource for researchers and professionals in the fields of mathematics, biology, engineering, and physics who would like to further their knowledge of PDEs.
