## Geometric Modelling, Numerical Simulation, and Optimization:: Applied Mathematics at SINTEFGeir Hasle, Knut-Andreas Lie, Ewald Quak This edited volume addresses the importance of mathematics for industry and society by presenting highlights from contract research at the Department of Applied Mathematics at SINTEF, the largest independent research organization in Scandinavia. Examples range from computer-aided geometric design, via general purpose computing on graphics cards, to reservoir simulation for enhanced oil recovery. Contributions are written in a tutorial style. |
