Overview


This volume and its predecessor were conceived to advance the level of mathematical sophistication in the engineering community. The books particularly focus on material relevant to solving the kinds of mathematical problems regularly confronted by engineers. Suitable as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses as well as a reference for professionals, Volume Two's three-part treatment covers mathematical methods, statistical and scheduling studies, and physical phenomena.
Contributions include chapters on chance processes and fluctuations by William Feller, Monte Carlo calculations in problems of mathematical physics by Stanislaw M. Ulam, and circle, sphere, symmetrization, and some classical physical problems by George Pólya. Additional topics include integral transforms, information theory, the numerical solution of elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, and other subjects involving the intersection of engineering and mathematics.
