Mathematical Modeling: Case Studies from Industryby Ellis Cumberbatch
Synopses & Reviews
Industrial Mathematics is growing enormously in popularity around the world. This book deals with real industrial problems from real industries. Presented as a series of case studies by some of the world's most active and successful industrial mathematicians, this volume shows clearly how the process of mathematical collaboration with industry can not only work successfully for the industrial partner, but also lead to interesting and important mathematics. The book begins with a brief introduction, where the equations that most of the studies are based upon are summarized. Thirteen different problems are then considered, ranging from the cooking of cereal to the analysis of epidemic waves in animal populations. Throughout the work the emphasis is on telling industry what they really want to know. This book is suitable for all final year undergraduates, master's students, and Ph.D. students who are working on practical mathematical modeling.
Book News Annotation:
This volume presents actual industrial problems in order to expose students of high-level modeling courses to the modeling process, as well as to impress them with the diverse nature of applied math in technology transfer. These 13 contributions are products of study groups with industry and math clinics or similar interactions. Following an introduction to the continuum model employed by many of the authors, case studies focus on such areas as the dynamics of automotive catalytic converters, densitometers, and simulation of temperature behavior of hot glass during cooling. Cumberbatch directs the Mathematics Clinic at Claremont Graduate U. Fitt teaches math at the U. of Southampton.
