Mathematics in Industrial Problems: Part 6

Overview

This is the sixth volume in Avner Friedman's collection of Mathematics in Industrial Problems. These books aim to foster interaction between industry and mathematics at the "grass root" level of specific problems. The problems presented in this book arise from models developed by industrial scientists engaged in research and development of new or improved products. The author's sources are affiliated with a variety of industrial enterprises including Eastman Kodak Company, Ford Motor Company, 3M, General Motors, ...

Overview

This is the sixth volume in Avner Friedman's collection of Mathematics in Industrial Problems. These books aim to foster interaction between industry and mathematics at the "grass root" level of specific problems. The problems presented in this book arise from models developed by industrial scientists engaged in research and development of new or improved products. The author's sources are affiliated with a variety of industrial enterprises including Eastman Kodak Company, Ford Motor Company, 3M, General Motors, Paramax, IBM/T.J. Watson Research Center, Xerox Corporation/Webster Research Center, Cray Research Inc., and Motorola. The topics explored in this volume include magnetization in recording media; effective medium theory for color, particle simulation in xerography; amorphous semiconductors, small device semiconductor, and smart power device; dopant diffusion in network; reaction-diffusion and dissolution of crystals in solution; permeation through flawed surfaces; statistical quality control; glassy polymers; wettability for heterogeneous surfaces; electrorheological fluids; remote sensing and data fusion; micromechanical structures, and sensors. Open problems and references to mathematical literature are incorporated into many chapters. The final chapter contains solutions to problems raised in parts of the preceding volumes of Mathematics in Industrial Problems, published in the IMA Volumes in Mathematics and its Applica§ tions Series.

Booknews
Twenty self-contained chapters, based on papers and discussions at a seminar (date and place not noted), discuss mathematical problems drawn from actual industrial examples, and solutions for them. Aimed at engineers and scientists in industry, but mathematicians might find topics of interest as well. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
