Numerical Partial Differential Equations for Environmental Scientists and Engineers: A First Practical Course (Hardback)Daniel R. Lynch (author)
- We can order this
For readers with some competence in PDE solution properties, this book offers an interdisciplinary approach to problems occurring in natural environmental media: the hydrosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, biosphere and ionosphere. It presents two major discretization methods: Finite Difference and Finite Element, plus a section on practical approaches to ill-posed problems. The blend of theory, analysis, and implementation practicality supports solving and understanding complicated problems.

From the reviews of the first edition:
"This book concerns the practical solution of partial differential equations and reflects an inter-disciplinary approach to problems occurring in natural environments. ... it is a new innovation for the student community in environmental science and engineering. It is an excellent piece of research." (Prabhat Kumar Mahanti, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1076, 2006)
