Mathematical models

  • Mathematics in Natureby John A. Adam

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 37.50

    From rainbows, river meanders, and shadows to spider webs, honeycombs, and the markings on animal coats, the visible world is full of patterns that can be described mathematically. Examining such readily observable phenomena, this book introduces readers to the beauty of nature as revealed by mathematics and the beauty of mathematics as revealed in... more...

  • Applied Research in Uncertainty Modeling and Analysisby Nii O. Attoh-Okine

    Springer 2007; US$ 209.00

    Uncertainty has been a concern to engineers, managers, and scientists for many years in engineering and sciences. Uncertainty has for a long time been considered synonymous with random, stochastic, statistic, or probabilistic. Since the early sixties views on uncertainty have become more heterogeneous and more tools that model uncertainty than statistics... more...

  • Seismology: Surface Waves and Earth Oscillationsby Bruce Bolt

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Methods in Computational Physics, Volume 11: Seismology: Surface Waves and Earth Oscillations is a five-chapter text that deals with the computational analysis of surface waves and the eigenvibrations of the Earth. Chapter 1 describes the advances in the numerical modeling of geological structures where the appropriate partial differential equations... more...

  • Modellierungskompetenzen langfristig und kumulativ fördernby Ulrich Böhm

    Springer 2013; US$ 69.99

    Das mathematische Modellieren sollte auf Grund seiner Verankerung in zahlreichen Rahmen- und Lehrplänen Gegenstand des Mathematikunterrichts sein. Jedoch ist bislang unklar, wie die Entwicklung von Modellierungskompetenzen über mehrere Schuljahre hinweg systematisch gefördert werden kann.In der vorliegenden Arbeit stellt Ulrich Böhm... more...

  • General Circulation Models of the Atmosphereby Julius Chang

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Methods in Computational Physics, Volume 17: General Circulation Models of the Atmosphere is a five-chapter text that covers the fundamentals and application of general circulation models to solving practical problems related to the atmosphere. The first chapter describes the various options in modeling physical processes and computational procedures.... more...

  • Methods of Mathematical Physicsby Richard Courant; D. Hilbert

    Wiley 2008; US$ 170.00

    Since the first volume of this work came out in Germany in 1937, this book, together with its first volume, has remained standard in the field. Courant and Hilbert's treatment restores the historically deep connections between physical intuition and mathematical development, providing the reader with a unified approach to mathematical physics. The... more...

  • Methods of Mathematical Physicsby Richard Courant; D. Hilbert

    Wiley 2008; US$ 173.00

    Since the first volume of this work came out in Germany in 1924, this book, together with its second volume, has remained standard in the field. Courant and Hilbert's treatment restores the historically deep connections between physical intuition and mathematical development, providing the reader with a unified approach to mathematical physics. The... more...

  • Selected Works of S.L. Sobolevby Gennadii V. Demidenko; Vladimir L. Vaskevich

    Springer 2006; US$ 179.00

    Sobolev was a great mathematician of the twentieth century. His selected works included in this volume laid the foundations for development of the modern theory of partial differential equations and equations of mathematical physics. The topics covered include equations of mathematical physics, computational mathematics and cubature formulas. more...

  • Models. Behaving. Badly.by Emanuel Derman

    Wiley 2011; US$ 28.50

    Emanuel Derman was a quantitative analyst (Quant) at Goldman Sachs, one of the financial engineers whose mathematical models became crucial for Wall Street. The reliance investors put on such quantitative analysis was catastrophic for the economy, setting off the ongoing string of financial crises that began with the mortgage market in 2007 and continues... more...

  • Classical Mechanicsby Emmanuele DiBenedetto

    Springer 2010; US$ 74.95

    * Offers a rigorous mathematical treatment of mechanics as a text or reference * Revisits beautiful classical material, including gyroscopes, precessions, spinning tops, effects of rotation of the Earth on gravity motions, and variational principles * Employs mathematics not only as a "unifying" language, but also to exemplify its role as... more...
