About the Authors
  • Addresses the construction, analysis, and intepretation of mathematical models that shed light on significant problems in the physical sciences. The authors' case studies approach leads to excitement in teaching realistic problems. The exercises reinforce, test and extend the reader's understanding. This reprint volume may be used as an upper level undergraduate or graduate textbook as well as a reference for researchers working on fluid mechanics, elasticity, perturbation methods, dimensional analysis, numerical analysis, continuum mechanics and differential equations.

    • Suitable for upper level undergraduates or graduates and as a reference for researchers working in a variety of fields, including fluid mechanics, elasticity, perturbation methods, and differential equations

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The words 'applied mathematics' decorate the covers of many books these days, but precious little of the practice of applied mathematics seeps through into the pages bound between those covers. Of the select few that do indeed introduce the reader to applied mathematics, this book may well be the best. I know of none better.' Paul Davis, American Mathematical Monthly
