Overview

Industrial mathematics is a fast growing field within the mathematical sciences. It is characterized by the origin of the problems which it engages; they all come from industry: research and development, finances, and communications. The common feature running through this enterprise is the goal of gaining a better understanding of industrial models and processes through mathematical ideas and computations. The authors of this book have undertaken the approach of presenting real industrial problems and their mathematical modeling as a motivation for developing mathematical methods that are needed for solving the problems. With each chapter presenting one important problem that arises in today's industry, and then studying the problem by mathematical analysis and computation, this book introduces the reader to many new ideas and methods from ordinary and partial differential equations, and from integral equations and control theory. It brings the excitement of real industrial problems into the undergraduate mathematical curriculum.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is REAL. It has a different spirit. It gives students the distinct feeling that they could go into industry and actually work on problems like those in this book. The standard teaching of 'here is the mathematics, use it to solve this problem' has been replaced with 'here is a problem, use mathematics to solve it.' This book refreshes the interest of students in mathematics and motivates them to learn more of it. It helps them understand the nature and the importance of mathematics in real world applications.' Oscar Bruno, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Georgia Institute of Technology
C. P. Please
This is a book designed to reveal to mathematics students the excitement and intellectual challenges created by the real-world problems. To stimulate these ideas the authors have drawn on numerous industrial connections to present problems only recently considered by research groups in several industrial companies. ...The result is a book with a dynamic feel and numerous open-ended avenues for particularly motivated students to pursue. ...This book can form the basis of an excellent course for highly motivated good students...The problems presented will provide students with insight into the possible power of their mathematics to practical problems.
Zentrallblatt für Mathematik
Mathematics of Computation
This brief, ground-breaking, scholarly text is written for persons who have a two-year basic Calculus background. The authors have performed a valuable service by choosing interesting examples of real-world problems and formulating them as mathematical problems. They achieve their aim to show that Calculus and computers serve as ubiquitous tools for today and tomorrow.
