Topics in Mathematical Modeling
K. K. Tung

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"Tung's preface shows that he is a dyed-in-the-wool teacher of considerable talent whose only mission is to show the student how to take raw empirical data and turn it into a mathematical paradigm that can be analyzed. His prerequisites are solid but minimal: calculus and a smattering of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). He is wise to provide an appendix with a quick treatment of ODEs for those whose background is deficient. Tung also describes in the preface a clear path for those who wish to avoid the differential equations altogether. Tung covers some of the usual modeling topics but also many others that are surprising and refreshing."--Steven G. Krantz, UMAP Journal

ENDORSEMENTS:

"This book has a refreshing style that should appeal to undergraduates. Indeed, the author has produced a textbook that might well achieve his goal of teaching applied mathematics without those being taught noticing!"--Andrew Wathen, University of Oxford

"With courses in mathematical modeling getting ever more popular, this book will make a valuable addition to the subject. It deals with topics that should be appealing even to students not majoring in math or science, and the level of mathematical sophistication is carefully increased throughout the book."--Henrik Kalisch, University of Bergen, Norway
