From Our Editors

Through a series of exercise, this text helps readers understand a rapidly growing field of applied mathematics. Specifically, it concentrates on linearization, feedback concepts, the use of Liapunov functions and optimal control. This revised edition of Mathematics for Dynamic Modelling contains an enormous amount of information for more advanced researchers, yet can be understood by undergraduate students and non-specialists as well.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the First Edition:
"A remarkable is not often that one finds, in the same chapter, a coherent and complementary discussion of the pumping heart, spruce budworm infestations, and terrestrial magnetic field reversal...stimulating and informative."
--A.A. Barnes, McMaster University, in Physics in Canada
