*Partial Differential Equation Applications with R*

**Author**: William E. Schiesser**Publisher:**John Wiley & Sons**ISBN:**1118705165**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**344**View:**9473

Features a solid foundation of mathematical and computationaltools to formulate and solve real-world PDE problems across variousfields With a step-by-step approach to solving partial differentialequations (PDEs), Differential Equation Analysis in BiomedicalScience and Engineering: Partial Differential Equation Applicationswith R successfully applies computational techniques forsolving real-world PDE problems that are found in a variety offields, including chemistry, physics, biology, and physiology. Thebook provides readers with the necessary knowledge to reproduce andextend the computed numerical solutions and is a valuable resourcefor dealing with a broad class of linear and nonlinear partialdifferential equations. The author’s primary focus is on models expressed assystems of PDEs, which generally result from including spatialeffects so that the PDE dependent variables are functions of bothspace and time, unlike ordinary differential equation (ODE) systemsthat pertain to time only. As such, the book emphasizes details ofthe numerical algorithms and how the solutions were computed.Featuring computer-based mathematical models for solving real-worldproblems in the biological and biomedical sciences and engineering,the book also includes: R routines to facilitate the immediate use of computation forsolving differential equation problems without having to firstlearn the basic concepts of numerical analysis and programming forPDEs Models as systems of PDEs and associated initial and boundaryconditions with explanations of the associated chemistry, physics,biology, and physiology Numerical solutions of the presented model equations with adiscussion of the important features of the solutions Aspects of general PDE computation through various biomedicalscience and engineering applications Differential Equation Analysis in Biomedical Science andEngineering: Partial Differential Equation Applications with Ris an excellent reference for researchers, scientists, clinicians,medical researchers, engineers, statisticians, epidemiologists, andpharmacokineticists who are interested in both clinicalapplications and interpretation of experimental data withmathematical models in order to efficiently solve the associateddifferential equations. The book is also useful as a textbook forgraduate-level courses in mathematics, biomedical science andengineering, biology, biophysics, biochemistry, medicine, andengineering.

## Numerical Time-Dependent Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers

**Author**: Moysey Brio,Gary M. Webb,Aramais R. Zakharian**Publisher:**Academic Press**ISBN:**9780080917047**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**312**View:**9617

It is the first text that in addition to standard convergence theory treats other necessary ingredients for successful numerical simulations of physical systems encountered by every practitioner. The book is aimed at users with interests ranging from application modeling to numerical analysis and scientific software development. It is strongly influenced by the authors research in in space physics, electrical and optical engineering, applied mathematics, numerical analysis and professional software development. The material is based on a year-long graduate course taught at the University of Arizona since 1989. The book covers the first two-semesters of a three semester series. The second semester is based on a semester-long project, while the third semester requirement consists of a particular methods course in specific disciplines like computational fluid dynamics, finite element method in mechanical engineering, computational physics, biology, chemistry, photonics, etc. The first three chapters focus on basic properties of partial differential equations, including analysis of the dispersion relation, symmetries, particular solutions and instabilities of the PDEs; methods of discretization and convergence theory for initial value problems. The goal is to progress from observations of simple numerical artifacts like diffusion, damping, dispersion, and anisotropies to their analysis and management technique, as it is not always possible to completely eliminate them. In the second part of the book we cover topics for which there are only sporadic theoretical results, while they are an integral part and often the most important part for successful numerical simulation. We adopt a more heuristic and practical approach using numerical methods of investigation and validation. The aim is teach students subtle key issues in order to separate physics from numerics. The following topics are addressed: Implementation of transparent and absorbing boundary conditions; Practical stability analysis in the presence of the boundaries and interfaces; Treatment of problems with different temporal/spatial scales either explicit or implicit; preservation of symmetries and additional constraints; physical regularization of singularities; resolution enhancement using adaptive mesh refinement and moving meshes. Self contained presentation of key issues in successful numerical simulation Accessible to scientists and engineers with diverse background Provides analysis of the dispersion relation, symmetries, particular solutions and instabilities of the partial differential equations

## Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations in Engineering by W F Ames

**Author**: W. F. Ames**Publisher:**Elsevier**ISBN:**0080960049**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**322**View:**5743

In this book, we study theoretical and practical aspects of computing methods for mathematical modelling of nonlinear systems. A number of computing techniques are considered, such as methods of operator approximation with any given accuracy; operator interpolation techniques including a non-Lagrange interpolation; methods of system representation subject to constraints associated with concepts of causality, memory and stationarity; methods of system representation with an accuracy that is the best within a given class of models; methods of covariance matrix estimation; methods for low-rank matrix approximations; hybrid methods based on a combination of iterative procedures and best operator approximation; and methods for information compression and filtering under condition that a filter model should satisfy restrictions associated with causality and different types of memory. As a result, the book represents a blend of new methods in general computational analysis, and specific, but also generic, techniques for study of systems theory ant its particular branches, such as optimal filtering and information compression. - Best operator approximation, - Non-Lagrange interpolation, - Generic Karhunen-Loeve transform - Generalised low-rank matrix approximation - Optimal data compression - Optimal nonlinear filtering
