BOOK SERIES


Multiphysics Modeling


About the Series

The book series addresses novel mathematical and numerical techniques with an interdisciplinary focus that cuts across all fields of science, engineering and technology. A unique collection of worked problems provide understanding of complicated coupled phenomena and processes, its forecasting and approaches to problem-solving for a diverse group of applications in physical, chemical, biological, geoscientific, medical and other fields. The series responds to the explosively growing interest in numerical modeling of coupled processes in general and its expansion to ever more sophisticated physics. Examples of topics in this series include natural resources exploration and exploitation (e.g. water resources and geothermal and petroleum reservoirs), natural disaster risk reduction (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis), evaluation and mitigation of human-induced phenomena as climate change, and optimization of engineering systems (e.g. construction design, manufacturing processes).
