about

This book presents a thorough grounding in the techniques of modeling, and proceeds to explore a range of continuum models from an impressive array of disciplines, including biology, chemical engineering, fluid and solid mechanics, geophysics, medicine, and physics. It assumes only a basic mathematical grounding in calculus and analysis and will provide a wealth of examples for students of mathematics, engineering, and the range of applied sciences.

Editorial Reviews

"...highly recommended to anyone interested in deterministic modeling...a well-written book. Even though the treatment is advanced, the writing style is straightforward. Each topic is presented clearly, equation components are clearly defined, and example problems are presented at the end of each chapter making this an excellent candidate for a classroom text...I grew intellectually through my review of this book."
