Detailed lecture notes on six topics at the forefront of current research in numerical analysis and applied mathematics, with each set of notes presenting a self-contained guide to a current research area and supplemented by an extensive bibliography. In addition, most of the notes contain detailed proofs of the key results. They start from a level suitable for first year graduates in applied mathematics, mathematical analysis or numerical analysis, and proceed to current research topics. Readers will thus quickly gain an insight into the important results and techniques in each area without recourse to the large research literature. Current (unsolved) problems are also described, and directions for future research given.

A fully updated tutorial on the basics of the Python programming language for science students Python is a computer programming language that is rapidly gaining popularity throughout the sciences. This fully updated edition of A Student's Guide to Python for Physical Modeling aims to help you, the student, teach yourself enough of the Python programming language to get started with physical modeling. You will learn how to install an open-source Python programming environment and use it to accomplish many common scientific computing tasks: importing, exporting, and visualizing data; numerical analysis; and simulation. No prior programming experience is assumed. This tutorial focuses on fundamentals and introduces a wide range of useful techniques, including: Basic Python programming and scripting Numerical arrays Two- and three-dimensional graphics Monte Carlo simulations Numerical methods, including solving ordinary differential equations Image processing Animation Numerous code samples and exercises--with solutions—illustrate new ideas as they are introduced. Web-based resources also accompany this guide and include code samples, data sets, and more. This current edition brings the discussion of the Python language, Spyder development environment, and Anaconda distribution up to date. In addition, a new appendix introduces Jupyter notebooks.

This volume contains invited papers presented at the 16th Dundee Biennial Conference on Numerical Analysis held at the University of Dundee, 27-30 June, 1995. The Dundee Conferences are important events in the numerical analysis calendar, and the thirteen papers published here represent accounts of recent research work by leading numerical analysts covering a wide range of fields of interest. The book is a valuable guide to the direction of current research in many areas of numerical analysis. It will be of particular interest to graduate students and research workers concerned with the theory and application of numerical methods for solving ordinary and partial differential equations, with emphasis on problems in fluid dynamics. It also contains contributions to research into methods of linear algebra, numerical methods for optimisation problems and surface fitting.

A comprehensive guide to numerical methods for simulating physical-chemical systems This book offers a systematic, highly accessible presentation of numerical methods used to simulate the behavior of physical-chemical systems. Unlike most books on the subject, it focuses on methodology rather than specific applications. Written for students and professionals across an array of scientific and engineering disciplines and with varying levels of experience with applied mathematics, it provides comprehensive descriptions of numerical methods without requiring an advanced mathematical background. Based on its author’s more than forty years of experience teaching numerical methods to engineering students, Numerical Methods for Solving Partial Differential Equations presents the fundamentals of all of the commonly used numerical methods for solving differential equations at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students in science and engineering. Throughout, elementary examples show how numerical methods are used to solve generic versions of equations that arise in many scientific and engineering disciplines. In writing it, the author took pains to ensure that no assumptions were made about the background discipline of the reader. Covers the spectrum of numerical methods that are used to simulate the behavior of physical-chemical systems that occur in science and engineering Written by a professor of engineering with more than forty years of experience teaching numerical methods to engineers Requires only elementary knowledge of differential equations and matrix algebra to master the material Designed to teach students to understand, appreciate and apply the basic mathematics and equations on which Mathcad and similar commercial software packages are based Comprehensive yet accessible to readers with limited mathematical knowledge, Numerical Methods for Solving Partial Differential Equations is an excellent text for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students in the sciences and engineering. It is also a valuable working reference for professionals in engineering, physics, chemistry, computer science, and applied mathematics.

State-of-the-art numerical methods for solving complex engineering problems Great strides in computer technology have been made in the years since the popular first edition of this book was published. Several excellent software packages now help engineers solve complex problems. Making the most of these programs requires a working knowledge of the numerical methods on which the programs are based. Numerical Methods for Engineering Application provides that knowledge. While it avoids intense mathematical detail, Numerical Methods for Engineering Application supplies more in-depth explanations of methods than found in the typical engineer's numerical "cookbook." It offers complete coverage of most commonly encountered algebraic, interpolation, and integration problems. Ordinary differential equations are examined in great detail, as are three common types of partial differential equations--parabolic, elliptic, and hyperbolic. The author also explores a wide range of methods for solving initial and boundary value problems. This complete guide to numerical methods for solving engineering problems on computers provides: * Practical advice on how to select the best method for a given problem * Valuable insights into how each method works and why it is the best choice * Complete algorithms and source code for all programs covered * Code from the book and problem-solving programs designed by the author available from the author's website Numerical Methods for Engineering Application is a valuable working resource for engineers and applied physicists. It also serves as an excellent upper-level text for physics and engineering students in courses on modern numerical methods.
