Mathematical Modelling for Earth Sciences

Mathematical Modelling for Earth Sciences Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

As he carefully balances formality and practicality, Yang (civil, structural and environmental engineering, U. of Cambridge) supports both mathematicians and non-mathematicians as they study mathematical modeling and computer simulations in geophysical, environmental and geological processes. Yang takes a largely "theorem free" approach but still applies appropriate rigor in his coverage of mathematical modeling, calculus and complex variables, vectors and matrices, ordinary differential equations and integral transforms, partial differential equations and solution techniques, the calculus of variations, probability, geostatistics, numerical integration, and the finite difference method, finite volume method and finite element method. Applications include a reaction-diffusion system, elasticity and poroelasticity, and flow in porous media. Yang includes very good appendices on mathematical formulae and computer programs, and the final result is both rigorous and elegant, suitable for both classroom use and self-study.

Synopsis:

Mathematical modelling and computer simulations are an essential part of the analytical toolset used by earth scientists. Computer simulations based on mathematical models are routinely used to study geophysical, environmental, and geological processes in many areas of work and research from geophysics to petroleum engineering and from hydrology to environmental fluid dynamics. Author Xin-She Yang has carefully selected the topics which will be of most value to students. Dr. Yang has recognized the need to be careful in his examples while being comprehensive enough to include important topics and popular algorithms. The book is designed to be 'theorem-free' while balancing formality and practicality. Using worked examples and tackling each problem in a step-by-step manner, the text is especially suitable for non-mathematicians approaching this aspect of earth sciences for the first time. The coverage and level, for instance in the calculus of variation and pattern formation, will be of
