About this book

Assumes only a basic mathematical grounding in calculus and analysis.

'The presented case studies are almost self-contained and span an incredible breadth of applied science and engineering ... a must for university libraries ... I would ... recommend the book to anyone who is excited by the power of mathematics in describing the word. It might even become a classic of the genre.' John McCloskey, The Times Higher Education Supplement 'This volume will broaden the horizons of all professional applied mathematics.' C. Isenberg, Contemporary Physics 'Fowler's book is an outstanding contribution to the graduate textbook literature. Reading portions of Fowler's book will give a student a good idea about what applied mathematics really is ...' Society for Industrial and Applied mathematics
