Transport Modeling in Hydrogeochemical Systems

Author: Logan | J.David

Original price was: $104.00.Current price is: $83.20.

In the world of reality, we are often faced with describing and predicting the results of experiments. A mathematical model is a set of equations that encapsulates reality; it is a caricature of the real physical system that aids in our understanding of real phenomena. A good model extracts the essential features of the problem and lays out, in a simple manner, those processes and interactions that are important. By design, mathematical models should have predictive capability.

The subject of this monograph lies in the joint areas of applied mathematics and hydrogeology. The goals are to introduce various mathematical techniques and ideas to applied scientists while at the same time revealing to applied mathematicians an exciting catalog of interesting equations and examples, some of which have not undergone the rigors of mathematical analysis. Of course, there is a danger in a dual endeavor: the applied scientist may feel the mathematical models lack physical depth, and the mathematician may think the mathematics is trivial. However, mathematical modeling has established itself firmly as a tool that can not only lead to a greater understanding of science, but can also be a catalyst for the advancement of science. I hope the presentation, written in the spirit of mathematical modeling, has a balance that bridges these two areas and spawns some cross-fertilization. Notwithstanding, the reader should fully understand the idea of a mathematical model. In the world of reality, we are often faced with describing and predicting the results of experiments.
