By K. K. Tung

Topics in Mathematical Modeling is an introductory textbook on mathematical modeling. The booklet teaches how easy arithmetic will help formulate and remedy actual difficulties of present study curiosity in quite a lot of fields, together with biology, ecology, laptop technology, geophysics, engineering, and the social sciences. but the must haves are minimum: calculus and hassle-free differential equations. one of several themes addressed are HIV; plant phyllotaxis; international warming; the realm broad internet; plant and animal vascular networks; social networks; chaos and fractals; marriage and divorce; and El Niño. conventional modeling themes equivalent to predator-prey interplay, harvesting, and wars of attrition also are incorporated. such a lot chapters start with the heritage of an issue, stick with with an illustration of the way it may be modeled utilizing quite a few mathematical instruments, and shut with a dialogue of its ultimate unsolved aspects.

Designed for a one-semester direction, the ebook progresses from difficulties that may be solved with quite easy arithmetic to ones that require extra subtle tools. the maths suggestions are taught as had to remedy the matter being addressed, and every bankruptcy is designed to be mostly self sufficient to offer academics flexibility.

The booklet, that are used as an summary and creation to utilized arithmetic, is very appropriate for sophomore, junior, and senior scholars in math, technology, and engineering.
