Higher Calculus
This book is intended for students who have completed an elementary course of calculus and are taking the subject further, more particularly, perhaps, on account of its applications in physics and engineering. It covers the ground of a calculus course at first-year level in universities and colleges..

Ants, Bikes, and Clocks
Mathematics educators agree that problem solving is one of the essential skills their students should possess, yet few mathematics courses or textbooks are devoted entirely to developing this skill. Supported by narrative, examples, and exercises, Ants, Bikes, and Clocks: Problem Solving for Undergr..

Marine Acoustics
This book presents current research trends in the field of underwater acoustic wave direct and inverse problems. The ocean-seabed system is an acoustic waveguide, and this is the only book that treats inverse problems in a waveguide. The propagation of acoustic waves in this system is treated for va..

A Primer of Real Functions
This is a revised, updated, and augmented edition of a classic Carus monograph with a new chapter on integration and its applications. Earlier editions covered sets, metric spaces, continuous functions, and differentiable functions. To that, this edition adds sections on measurable sets and function..

Many phenomena in nature, engineering or society when seen at an intermediate distance, in space or time, exhibit the remarkable property of self-similarity: they reproduce themselves as scales change, subject to so-called scaling laws. It's crucial to know the details of these laws, so that mathema..

Finite Plastic Deformation of Crystalline Solids
This book reviews and interrelates a large number of theoretical and experimental contributions to the research on finite plastic deformation of single crystals and polycrystalline metals. An overall theoretical framework for investigation of large strains in crystalline materials is presented that ..

Scaling, Self-similarity, and Intermediate Asymptotics
Scaling laws reveal the fundamental property of phenomena, namely self-similarity - repeating in time and/or space - which substantially simplifies the mathematical modelling of the phenomena themselves. This book begins from a non-traditional exposition of dimensional analysis, physical similarity ..

Templets and the Explanation of Complex Patterns
Where does the particular form or configuration of a pattern come from, and how is it propagated from pattern to pattern? Templets and the Explanation of Complex Patterns provides a natural language for analysing such questions. Using it, the organisational forces that underlie the fabrication of an..

Primer on Optimal Control Theory
The performance of a process, such as aircraft fuel consumption, can be enhanced when its most effective controls and operating points are determined. Primer on Optimal Control Theory provides an introduction to the theory behind analysing these processes and finding the best controls, which provide..

Reservoir Simulation
Beginning with an overview of classical reservoir engineering and basic reservoir simulation methods, this book then progresses through a discussion of types of flows - single-phase, two-phase, black oil (three-phase), single phase with multi-components, compositional, and thermal. The author provid..

Asymptotic Theory of Separated Flows
Boundary-layer separation from a rigid body surface is one of the fundamental problems of classical and modern fluid dynamics. The major successes achieved since the late 1960s in the development of the theory of separated flows at high Reynolds numbers are in many ways associated with the use of as..

Modelling Differential Equations in Biology
Based on a very successful one-semester course taught at Harvard, this text teaches students in the life sciences how to use differential equations to help their research. It needs only a semester's background in calculus. Ideas from linear algebra and partial differential equations that are most us..
