World Scientific has published a new book by Arkadi Berezovski, Jüri Engelbrecht and Gerard A. Maugin
NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF WAVES AND FRONTS IN INHOMOGENEOUS SOLIDS
This book shows the advances methods of numerical simulation of waves and fronts propagation in inhomogeneous solids and introduces related important ideas associated with tyhe application of numerical methods for these problems. Great care has been taken throughout the book to seek a balamce between the thermomechanical analysis and numerical techniques. Itis suitable for advances undergraduate and graduate courses in continuum mechanics and ebgineering. Necessary prerequisites for this text are basic continuum mechanics and thermodynamics. Some elementary knowledge of numerical methods for partial differential equations is also preferable.
The highlights of CENS activities in 2003-2007 have been published in the booklet

Springer has published a new book edited by Ewald Quak and Tarmo Soomere
APPLIED WAVE MATHEMATICS.
SELECTED TOPICS IN SOLIDS, FLUIDS AND MATHEMATICAL METHODS
This volume consists of twelve contributions related tp the EU Marie Curie Transfer of Knowledge Project Cooperation of Estonian and Norwegian Scientific Centres within Mathematics and its Appplications, CENS-CMA (2005-2009).
The structure of the book reflects the distribution of topics addressed:
Part I Waves in Solids
Part II Mesoscopic Theory
Part III Exploiting the Dissipation Inequality
Part IV Waves in Fluids
Part V Mathematical Methods
The papers are written in a tutorial style, intended for non-specialist researchers and students, where the authors communicate their own experiences in tackling a problem that is currently of interest in the scientific community. The goal was to produce a book, which highlights the importance of applied mathematics and which can be used for educational purposes, such as material for a course or a seminar
