A good mathematical model of a physical situation leads to improved understanding. A good model must be robust (its underlying assumptions must not lead to inconsistent results) and it must be predictive anticipating results that can be verified by experiment. This book shows engineers howto construct or choose such models and how to solve them numerically. These are enormously important tasks in practical engineering.
Donard de Cogan is at University of East Anglia, Norwich. Anne de Cogan is at City College Norwich.
