Focuses On an Emerging Field in Water EngineeringA broad treatment of the Tsallis entropy theory presented from a water resources engineering point of view, Introduction to Tsallis Entropy Theory in Water Engineering fills a growing need for material on this theory and its relevant applications in the area of water engineering. This self-contained text includes several solved examples, and requires only a basic knowledge of mathematics and probability theory. Divided into four parts, the book begins with a detailed discussion of Tsallis entropy, moves on to hydraulics, expounds on the subject of hydrology, and ends with broad coverage on a wide variety of areas in water engineering.The author addresses:The Tsallis entropy theory for both discrete and continuous variablesThe procedure for deriving probability distributionsOne-dimensional velocity distributions Two-dimensional velocity distributions Methods for determining sediment concentrationSediment dischargeStage-discharge rating curvePrecipitation variabilityInfiltration and the derivation of infiltration equationsAn introduction to soil moisture, soil moisture profiles, and their estimationFlow duration curvesThe eco-index and indicators of hydrologic alteration (IHA)Measures of redundancy for water distribution networks, and moreIntroduction to Tsallis Entropy Theory in Water Engineering examines the basic concepts of the Tsallis entropy theory, and considers its current applications and potential for future use. This book advances further research on water engineering, hydrologic sciences, environmental sciences, and water resources engineering as they relate to the Tsallis entropy theory.
