Mathematical Models in Natural Science and Engineering: An Example-Based Approach

Front Cover
Springer, Feb 11, 2003 - Computers - 570 pages
0 Reviews

This book helps the reader become familiar with various mathematical models for mechanical, electrical, physical, atronomical, chemical, biological, ecological, cybernetical and other systems and processes. The models examined are evolutionary models, i.e. the models of time-varying processes known as dynamic systems, such as fluid flow, biological processes, oscillations in mechanical and electromagnetic systems, and social systems. The book shows readers how to identify appropriate situations for modelling, how to address difficulties in creating models, and how to learn what mathematics teaches us about the modelling of dynamical phenomena in our surrounding world. It is interesting for a wide spectrum of readers, students of natural science and engineering, and also for researchers in these fields.
