About the book

The book singularity encompasses topics that detail the concept of singularity used in mathematics and applied sciences. The theory of singularities is at the crossroad of branches of mathematics from the most abstract to the most applied. Theoretical topics include algebra, differential geometry, topology and the applied areas consist of dynamical systems theory, control theory, differential equations, Quantum Mechanics, optics and functional analysis.

The book covers topics such as the propagation of cracks in fracture mechanics, seismology and elasticity theory, the formation of shock waves in gas flow using both continuum and kinetic theories are considered, the formation of drops and bubbles in atomization, fluidization processes and formation of surfaces is considered. Singularities in materials such as liquid crystals, optical systems and thin films and pure mathematics components such as The theory of Singularity, algebra, and analysis and how singularities arise in an abstract setting are also welcome.

About the editor

Terry E. Moschandreou

London International Academy

Dr. Terry E. Moschandreou has completed his Ph.D. in applied mathematics at the University of Western Ontario in June 1997. The area of study concentrated on theoretical fluid mechanics and complex analysis. His thesis advisor was Dr. Mair Zamir who finished his Ph.D. at London Imperial College in the UK. Dr. Moschandreou has worked in research and primarily teaching since that time. He presently teaches advanced mathematics for Goode Educational Services based in Mississauga in Ontario Canada. He is also affiliated with London International Academy where he hopes to teach continuously. Dr. Moschandreou's research areas are in partial differential equations and applications to Navier-Stokes equations both existence and construction of solutions.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Lada Bozic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
