Series in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics Volume 1 ISSN: 13143034 S. Iliev,N. Pesheva, D. Iliev Equilibrium and quasi static dynamics of liquid, partially wetting solid surface Series in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, Volume 1, Institute of Mechanics  BAS, Sofia, 2011, 234 pp. 
The aim of this book is to acquaint the reader with the variational derivation of the equations, describing the statics and dynamics of the threephase system liquid/fluid/solid, which takes into account the existence of hysteresis of the equilibrium contact angle and the dissipation of energy when the contact line is moving. The effect of different possible realizations of the heterogeneity and roughness of the solid substrate on the equilibrium shapes of a drop placed on it is studied numerically. The asymptotic and numerical solutions for the liquid motion are obtained for different threephase systems taking into consideration the energy dissipation occurring when the contact line moves. A variational numerical method is developed for the realization of the numerical studies which allows to treat real threedimensional problems. The material, presented in the book is based on previous studies of the authors published in renowned international journals.

Upper bounds on heat transport and energy dissipation in moving fluids Series in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, Volume 2, Institute of Mechanics  BAS, Sofia, 2011, 318 pp. 
The aim of this book is to present the methods of the optimum theory of turbulence to the reader. The book consists of introductory part (up to chapter 3 inclusive) where the model equations of the hydrodynamics which are the basis for the optimum theory of turbulence are presented. In addition the two methods of the optimum theory of turbulence are discussed. The second part of the book is devoted to the upper bounds on the quantities connected to the thermal convection in a fluid layer without presence of rotation. The influence of rotation on the thermal convection is discussed in the third part of the book. In the same part one of the methods of the optimum theory of turbulence is illustrated on the basis of isothermal flow without presence of thermal convection. The material presented in the book is based on studies of the author published in renowned international journals. Referees: Acad. Prof. Stojcho Panchev, D. Sc. Prof. Zapryan Zapryanov, D. Sc.

Mechanics of nanomaterials and nanotechnology, Series in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, Volume 3, Institute of Mechanics  BAS, Sofia, 2012, 326 pp. This collection is issued with the financial support of Bulgarian Science Fund, Ministry of Education, Youth, and Science. 
The jubilee collection of original works of the authors team presented is aimed to acquaint the scientific community, the doctoral students, and the hightech industry with the achievements of scientists from the Institute of Mechanics (IMech), BAS, in international research collaboration. The book is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the organized research in mechanics and the 35th anniversary of IMech. The purpose of this collection is to demonstrate the research level in IMech in the field of mechanics of nanomaterials (NM) within the context of the recent world achievements and the capabilities of the modern equipment available in IMech and the Open Laboratory of Experimental Mechanics of Micro and Nanomaterials. This book is based on the results of 26 autors from different generations with significant contribution from young researchers. It consists of 11 chapters distributed into 4 sections: Nanomaterials based on metals; Nanomaterials based on polymers; Modeling of nanomaterials and nanostructurs; and Experimental nano and micromechanics. The chapters describe the most recent technologies, theoretical methods, and experimental techniques and their application in NM studies. Each chapter contains rich overview and analysis in the specific subfield. Total are cited 624 publications of which 58 belong to the authors. The book is illustrated with 13 tables, 181 photos, charts and diagrams, of them ~ 14% colored. Referees: V. Kamburov, Assoc. Prof., PhD ( Chapters I.1, ІІІ.4 ) M.
