This book presents mathematical modelling and the integrated process of formulating sets of equations to describe real-world problems. It describes methods for obtaining solutions of challenging differential equations stemming from problems in areas such as chemical reactions, population dynamics, mechanical systems, and fluid mechanics. Chapters 1 to 4 cover essential topics in ordinary differential equations, transport equations and the calculus of variations that are important for formulating models. Chapters 5 to 11 then develop more advanced techniques including similarity solutions, matched asymptotic expansions, multiple scale analysis, long-wave models, and fast/slow dynamical systems. Methods of Mathematical Modelling will be useful for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering and other applied sciences.

Addressed to engineers, scientists, and applied mathematicians, this book explores the fundamental aspects of mathematical modelling in applied sciences and related mathematical and computational methods. After providing the general framework needed for mathematical modelling-definitions, classifications, general modelling procedures, and validation methods-the authors deal with the analysis of discrete models. This includes modelling methods and related mathematical methods. The analysis of models is defined in terms of ordinary differential equations. The analysis of continuous models, particularly models defined in terms of partial differential equations, follows. The authors then examine inverse type problems and stochastic modelling. Three appendices provide a concise guide to functional analysis, approximation theory, and probability, and a diskette included with the book includes ten scientific programs to introduce the reader to scientific computation at a practical level.

Approach your problems from the right end It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is and begin with the answers. Then one day, that they can't see the problem. perhaps you will find the final question. G. K. Chesterton. The Scandal of Father 'The Hermit Clad in Crane Feathers' in R. Brown 'The point of a Pin'. van Gulik's The Chinese Maze Murders. Growing specialization and diversification have brought a host of monographs and textbooks on increasingly specialized topics. However, the "tree" of knowledge of mathematics and related fields does not grow only by putting forth new branches. It also happens, quite often in fact, that branches which were thought to be completely disparate are suddenly seen to be related. Further, the kind and level of sophistication of mathematics applied in various sciences has changed drastically in recent years: measure theory is used (non trivially) in regional and theoretical economics; algebraic geometry interacts with physics; the Minkowsky lemma, coding theory and the structure of water meet one another in packing and covering theory; quantum fields, crystal defects and mathematical programming profit from homotopy theory; Lie algebras are relevant to filtering; and prediction and electrical engineering can use Stein spaces. And in addition to this there are such new emerging subdisciplines as "experimental mathematics", "CFD", "completely integrable systems", "chaos, synergetics and large-scale order", which are almost impossible to fit into the existing classification schemes. They draw upon widely different sections of mathematics.

Mathematical modeling is becoming increasingly versatile and multi-disciplinary. This text demonstrates the broadness of this field as the authors consider the principles of model construction and use common approaches to build models from a range of subject areas. The book reflects the interests and experiences of the authors, but it explores mathematical modeling across a wide range of applications, from mechanics to social science. A general approach is adopted, where ideas and examples are favored over rigorous mathematical procedures. This insightful book will be of interest to specialists, teachers, and students across a wide range of disciplines..

From the perspective of partial differential equations (PDE), this book introduces the Black-Scholes-Merton's option pricing theory. A unified approach is used to model various types of option pricing as PDE problems, to derive pricing formulas as their solutions, and to design efficient algorithms from the numerical calculation of PDEs.

Die Frage nach dem Aufgabenkreis der Statistik im allgemeinen kann nicht mit wenigen Worten umrissen werden. Wenn man etwas näher auf die geschichtliche Entwicklung des Begriffes Statistik eingeht\ so findet man, daß lange Zeit darunter nur die Beschrei bung von "Staatsmerkwürdigkeiten" (wie Bevölkerungszahl, Bo denbeschaffenheit, Sammlung wirtschaftlicher Daten) verstanden wurde. Erst in neuerer Zeit drang die statistische Betrachtungsweise auch in die Naturwissenschaften ein (BOLTZMANN, GIBBS, MAx WELL). Fußend auf dem Boden der seit Beginn dieses Jahrhunderts sich rasch entwickelnden Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie hat dann ins besondere in den letzten dreißig Jahren auch die mathematische Statistik einen unerhörten Aufschwung genommen und die Metho den der statistischen Analyse mit einer kaum zu übersehenden Fülle von Gedanken bereichert. Statistische Überlegungen treten heute in den verschiedensten Wissensgebieten auf. Es genügt, wenn wir neben den Wirtschaftswissenschaften als Beispiele die Astronomie, die Biologie, die Medizin, die Psychologie, die Physik und die Soziologie anführen. Wenn es also, wie gesagt, nicht leicht ist, den allgemeinen Be griff der Statistik kurz zu charakterisieren, so geht man doch wohl nicht fehl, wenn man feststellt, daß sich die Statistik mit dem Studium von Erscheinungen befaßt, die entweder eine große Zahl von Individuen betreffen, oder sonst in irgendeiner Weise eine Viel falt von Einzelerscheinungen zusammenfassen. Man kann somit als ein Charakteristikum der Statistik das Studium der Massen erscheinungen betrachten. Es ist eine Erfahrungstatsache, daß bei Massenerscheinungen Gesetzmäßigkeiten nachgewiesen werden können, die bei Einzelerscheinungen kein Gegenstück haben. Das 1 Vgl. W.
