Mathematica Beyond Mathematics: The Wolfram Language in the Real World


José Guillermo Sánchez León
May 9, 2017

Although many books have been written about Mathematica, very few of them cover the new functionality added to the most recent versions of the program. Mathematica Beyond Mathematics: The Wolfram Language in the Real World introduces the new features using real-world examples, based on the experienc...

In Generalized Barycentric Coordinates in Computer Graphics and Computational Mechanics, eminent computer graphics and computational mechanics researchers provide a state-of-the-art overview of generalized barycentric coordinates. Commonly used in cutting-edge applications such as mesh...

Spectral Methods in Geodesy and Geophysics

Christopher Jekeli
September 28, 2017

The text develops the principal aspects of applied Fourier analysis and methodology with the main goal to inculcate a different way of perceiving global and regional geodetic and geophysical data, namely from the perspective of the frequency, or spectral, domain rather than the spatial domain. The...

MATLAB® Essentials: A First Course for Engineers and Scientists

William Bober
September 01, 2017

All disciplines of science and engineering use numerical methods for complex problem analysis, due to the highly mathematical nature of the field. Analytical methods alone are unable to solve many complex problems engineering students and professionals confront. Introduction to MATLAB® Programming...

Decomposition Methods for Differential Equations: Theory and Applications describes the analysis of numerical methods for evolution equations based on temporal and spatial decomposition methods. It covers real-life problems, the underlying decomposition and discretization, the stability and...

Numerical Techniques for Direct and Large-Eddy Simulations

Xi Jiang, Choi-Hong Lai
June 14, 2017

Compared to the traditional modeling of computational fluid dynamics, direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large-eddy simulation (LES) provide a very detailed solution of the flow field by offering enhanced capability in predicting the unsteady features of the flow field. In many cases, DNS can...
