The CMDS Symposia were initiated in 1975. CMDS 11, organised in École des Mines de Paris, welcomed 66 participants from 14 countries. With the aim to stimulate interdisciplinary research, it gathered scientists in various areas (physics, mechanics, materials sciences, applied mathematics, engineering sciences), working on properties and applications of physical systems, where the interaction between a discrete and a continuous description plays a major rote. These Proceedings collect the content of mort lectures given at CMDS 11, and covering the following topics : statistical mechanics, mech

Among the most remarkable effects that quantum mechanics adds to the catalog of the thermal properties of matter is "condensation" of an ideal gas of identical particles into a single quantum state, the principle of which was discovered in the theory of statistical mechanics by Bose and Einstein in the 1920s. Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) is a mechanism for producing a macroscopic quantum system, and is exemplary of the macroscopic quantum phenomena of superconductivity and superfluidity.These 15 papers provide an introduction to current work on BEC.

This book started because I needed an introduction to the compressible flow book. After a while it seems that is easier to write a whole book than the two original planned chapters. In writing this book, it was assumed that introductory book on fluid me- chanics should not contained many new ideas but should be modern in the material presentation. There are numerous books on fluid mechanics but none of which is open content. The approach adapted in this book is practical, and more hands–on approach. This statement really meant that the book is intent to be used by students to solve th
