Meerschaert's new edition strengthens his position as the survey text of choice for mathematical modeling courses, adding ample instructor support and leveraging on-line delivery for solutions manuals and software ancillaries.

From genetic engineering to hurricane prediction, mathematical models guide much of the decision-making in our society, and if the assumptions and methods underlying the modeling are flawed, the outcome can be disastrously poor, as recent events have proved. Since mathematical modeling is a rapidly growing specialty with applications in so many scientific and technical disciplines, there is a need for mathematically rigorous treatments of the subject, and particularly for texts that expose students to a range of possible approaches.

  • 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
