Mathematics in Industrial Problems: Part 7

Overview

This is the seventh 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 ...
