The emphasis of this book lies in the teaching of mathematical modeling rather than simply presenting models. To this end the book starts with the simple discrete exponential growth model as a building block, and successively refines it. This involves adding variable growth rates, multiple variables, fitting growth rates to data, including random elements, testing exactness of fit, using computer simulations and moving to a continuous setting. No advanced knowledge is assumed of the reader, making this book suitable for elementary modeling courses. The book can also be used to supplement courses in linear algebra, differential equations, probability theory and statistics.

Book Description:

The aim of this book is the teaching of mathematical modeling. No advanced knowledge is assumed of the reader, making this book suitable for elementary modeling courses, or to supplement courses in linear algebra, differential equations, probability theory and statistics.

From the Publisher:

Students taking a course based on this book should have some mathematical maturity, but will need little advanced knowledge. The book presents more advanced topics on an as-needed basis and serves to show how the different topics of undergraduate mathematics can be used together to solve problems. The course presents elements of discrete dynamical systems, basic probability theory, differential equations, matrix algebra, stochastic processes, curve fitting, statistical testing, and regression analysis. Computer analysis is extensively used in conjunction with these topics. You can also use this book if you are seeking applications to supplement a course in linear algebra, differential equations, difference equations, probability theory, or statistics.
