The new edition of Mathematical Modeling, the survey text of choice for mathematical modeling courses, adds ample instructor support and online delivery for solutions manuals and software ancillaries.

From genetic engineering to hurricane prediction, mathematical models guide much of the decision making in our society. If the assumptions and methods underlying the modeling are flawed, the outcome can be disastrously poor. With mathematical modeling growing rapidly in so many scientific and technical disciplines, Mathematical Modeling, Fourth Edition provides a rigorous treatment of the subject. The book explores a range of approaches including optimization models, dynamic models and probability models.

  • Offers increased support for instructors, including MATLAB material as well as other on-line resources
  • Features new sections on time series analysis and diffusion models
  • Provides additional problems with international focus such as whale and dolphin populations, plus updated optimization problems

Review:

"This book distinguishes itself from comparable texts by its broad treatment of the field. It offers an extensive survey of mathematical modeling problems and techniques that is organized into three big sections corresponding to optimization, dynamics and probability models."--MAA Reviews, March 19, 2014
