The Lecture Notes in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics LAMM are intended for
an interdisciplinary readership in the fields of applied mathematics and mechanics.
This series is published under the auspices of the International Association of Applied
Mathematics and Mechanics (IAAMM; German GAMM). Topics of interest include for example
focus areas of the IAAMM such as: foundations of mechanics, thermodynamics,
material theory and modeling, multibody dynamics, structural mechanics, solid mechanics, biomechanics,
damage, fracture, multiscale modeling and homogenization, fluid mechanics, gas dynamics,
laminar flows and transition, turbulence and reactive flows, interface flows, acoustics, waves,
applied analysis, mathematical modeling, calculus of variations, variational principles,
applied operator theory, evolutionary equations, applied stochastics, systems with uncertainty,
dynamical systems, control theory, optimization, applied and numerical linear algebra,
analysis and numerics of ordinary and partial differential equations. Each contribution to
the series is intended to be accessible to researchers in mathematics and mechanics and is
written in English. The aim of the series is to provide introductory texts for modern developments
in applied mathematics and mechanics contributing to crossfertilization. The Lecture Notes are
aimed at researchers as well as advanced masters and PhD students in both mechanics and mathematics.
Contributions to the series are selfcontained and focused on a few central themes.
The goal of each contribution is the communication of modern ideas and principles rather than
on completeness or detailed proofs. Like lecture notes from a course, a wellchosen example
is preferable to an abstract framework that cannot be comprehended without deeper involvement.
The typical length of each contribution is between 100 and 300 pages. If the lecture notes represent
the proceedings of a summer school with several contributors, a unified, consistent presentation and
style are required (e.g., common notation). In exceptional cases, doctoral theses may be accepted,
if they fulfill the abovementioned criteria. Potential contributors should contact the appropriate
editor with a title, table of contents, and a sample chapter. Full manuscripts accepted by the
editors will then be peerreviewed.
