About this book

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.

'This is a fascinating, even inspiring, book for the graduate mathematician.' A. H. Harker, Contemporary Physics '! this book is an excellent introduction to mathematical modelling, with a wealth of interesting case studies and lovely mathematics that will appeal to many of its target audience - final year undergraduates, Masters and PhD students working in 'practical' mathematical modelling.' The Mathematical Gazette
