9780521570954: The Nature of Mathematical Modeling

This 1998 book is about the nature of mathematical modeling, and about the kinds of techniques that are useful for modeling. This essential text will be of great value to anyone working in any quantitative or semi-quantitative discipline, including computer science, physics, applied mathematics, engineering, biology, economics and the social sciences, from undergraduates to leading researchers.

Críticas:

Review of the hardback: 'Simulation and mathematical modelling will power the 21st century the way steam powered the 19th. Gershenfeld masterfully compresses two armloads of dense textbooks into a single clear volume, including both classic and avant garde methods, and with well-selected references for further study. Every student of computing needs this book as the entry ticket into a vital and rapidly-changing field.' William H. Press, Harvard University, author of Numerical Recipes

Review of the hardback: 'Reducing whole disciplines to 10 pages or so of essential ideas makes for a remarkable guidebook. Virtually every present-day technique for modeling systems is displayed, like so many tools hung on a pegboard … anyone who wants a sense of how the language of mathematics has changed in the last 50 years will marvel at Gershenfeld's concise map.' The Boston Globe

Review of the hardback: 'In a compact but accessible manner, Gershenfeld offers a wide-ranging overview of mathematical ideas and techniques that provide a number of effective approaches to problem solving ... The Nature of Mathematical Modeling is a great compendium of techniques. It should be kept within easy reach of anyone who wants to build computer models to help understand the world around us.' Science

Review of the hardback: 'Each topic described deserves a book in its own right, however, the author has skillfully pulled together a concise summary of each introducing basic results and building on them … Each time I thumbed through the text I found something of interest which was well written and frequently presented a new perspective on a known subject … I found this book a pleasure to read … and recommend it as good background reading material on the broad subject of mathematical modeling. This not only includes students but also possibly for managerial purposes where a deep knowledge of a subject may not be required but an overview with the basic principles explained.' Christopher Dean, Mathematics Today

Review of the hardback: 'Professor Gershenfeld's book is praiseworthy for being a concise account of a wide range of subjects and methods dealing with mathematical modelling as well as numerical treatment of models and governing equations with the aid of computers … This is a remarkable achievement, taking into account the wealth of subjects that Gershenfeld has succeeded in considering in this space … To conclude, I wholeheartedly recommend this book to both students and professional scientists … I have read the entire book with utmost pleasure and satisfaction.' Contemporary Physics

Review of the hardback: 'This is a well-written and interesting book. It would make an excellent text for a final-year undergraduate course in modeling and a good reference for research students in any situation where data are to be examined.' A. D. Booth, Simulation and Modeling

Review of the hardback: 'The book contains a wealth of basic ideas and methods of the fantastic world of mathematical modeling … presented in a compact and self-contained way … a good introduction to the subject …'. N. D. C. Veraverbeke, ISI Short Book Reviews

Review of the hardback: 'The book offers a useful; insight into modelling with mathematical modelling and computer implematation its main concern. The author achieves his aim; of producing a well-written account of the simple and efficient ways in which such models can be implemented.' Kybernetes

Reseña del editor:

This 1998 book, about the nature and techniques of mathematical modeling, is oriented towards simple efficient implementations on computers. The text is in three sections. The first covers exact and approximate analytical techniques; the second, numerical methods; the third, model inference based on observations; and the last, the special role of time in modeling. Each of the topics in the book would be the worthy subject of a dedicated text, but only by presenting the material in this way is it possible to make so much material accessible to so many people. Each chapter presents a concise summary of the core results in an area, providing an orientation to what they can (and cannot) do, enough background to use them to solve typical problems, and pointers to access the literature for particular applications. The text is complemented by extensive worked problems.
