Mathematical Modeling: Classroom Notes in Applied Mathematics

Murray S. Klamkin, Editor

"This collection provides a tremendous resource for undergraduate courses in mathematical modeling; it also demonstrates the importance of physics, geometry, and probability in the education of mathematical modelers." -- Mathematics Magazine, Vol. 61, No. 2, April 1988.

Designed for classroom use, this book contains short, self-contained mathematical models of problems in the physical, mathematical, and biological sciences first published in the Classroom Notes section of the SIAM Review from 1975-1985. The problems provide an ideal way to make complex subject matter more accessible to the student through the use of concrete applications. Each section has extensive supplementary references provided by the editor from his years of experience with mathematical modelling.


Introduction. Part I: Physical and Mathematical Sciences: Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Traffic Flow, Electrical Networks, Communication and Coding, Graph Theory and Applications, Applied Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Mathematical Economics, Optimization, Music, Stochastic Models. Part II: Life Sciences: Population Models, Medical Models.
