Overview

Mathematical Modeling, Second Edition, offers a unique approach to mathematical modeling by providing an

inviting overview, and applying problem-solving methodology throughout concerning three major areas: optimization, dynamical

systems, and stochastic processes. Providing a thorough revision, the author takes a practical approach toward the solution of a

variety of real problems such as docking two vehicles in space, growth rate of an infectious disease, and wildlife management.

Rigorous mathematical techniques required for reasonable solutions are introduced as necessary.

from:Reviewer Comments:

qu:"The author is very clear and careful in his presentation. The exercises are excellent. The examples are one of the

strongest features. Honestly, I have not considered using any other text for my course."

source:—Blaise Morton, University of Minnesota

qu:"It is the best modeling book for this audience that I have found. I find that Meerschaert's idea of an undergraduate

course in modeling is very close to how I think such a course should run."

source:—W. George Cochran, Louisiana State University
