Industrial mathematics : a course in solving real-world problems by Avner Friedman( Book )

26 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and Palauan and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Industrial mathematics is a fast growing field within the mathematical sciences. It is characterized by the origin of the problems which it engages; they all come from industry: research and development, finances, and communications. The common feature running through this enterprise is the goal of gaining a better understanding of industrial models and processes through mathematical ideas and computations. The authors of this book have undertaken the approach of presenting real industrial problems and their mathematical modeling as a motivation for developing mathematical methods that are needed for solving the problems. With each chapter presenting one important problem that arises in today's industry, and then studying the problem by mathematical analysis and computation, this book introduces the reader to many new ideas and methods from ordinary and partial differential equations, and from integral equations and control theory. It brings the excitement of real industrial problems into the undergraduate mathematical curriculum. The problems selected are accessible to students who have already taken what in many colleges and universities constitutes the first two-year basic Calculus sequence. A working knowledge of Fortran, Pascal, or C language is required

Models of cellular regulation by B Aguda( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The human genome of three billion letters has been sequenced. So have the genomes of thousands of other organisms. With unprecedented resolution, modern technologies are allowing us to peek into the world of genes, biomolecules, and cells - and flooding us with data of immense complexity that we are just barely beginning to understand. A huge gap separates our knowledge of the components of a cell and what is known from our observations of its physiology. The authors have written this graduate textbook to explore what has been done to close this gap of understanding between the realms of molecules and biological processes. They have gathered together illustrative mechanisms and models of gene regulatory networks, DNA replication, the cell cycle, cell death, differentiation, cell senescence, and the abnormal state of cancer cells. The mechanisms are biomolecular in detail, and the models are mathematical in nature. The interdisciplinary presentation will be of interest to both biologists and mathematicians, and every discipline in between."--Jacket
Mathematical models in photographic science by Avner Friedman( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents mathematical models that arise in current photographic science. The book contains seventeen chapters, each dealing with one area of photographic science. Each chapter, except the two introductory chapters, begins with general background information at a level understandable by graduate and undergraduate students. It then proceeds to develop a mathematical model, using mathematical tools such as ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, and stochastic processes. Next, some mathematical results are mentioned, often providing a partial solution to problems raised by the model. Finally, most chapters include open research problems as well as exercises for graduate students and advanced undergraduates."--Jacket
Mathematics in industrial problems by Avner Friedman( Book )

10 editions published in 1991 in 3 languages and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents industrial problems to mathematicians, including the mathematical formulation of the problems. The first twenty chapters of the book include the industrial background, relevant mathematical literature, a list of open mathematical problems and, in some cases, reference to a solution or a partial solution of the problem. Most of the problems, however, are still open and they are addressed to mathematicians. The last chapter of the book contains reference to solutions of problems presented in the previous volume of Mathematics in Industrial Problems, Part 3 published in the IMA series, as volume 31. The topics of the book include semiconductor devices and processing; particles dynamics; polymer chains and electrophoresis; catalytic converter, robotics and CFD in the automobile industry, superconductivity, magnetic storage devices, signal processing, and experimental design. The book will be of interest to mathematicians seeking to work on mathematical problems which arise in industry. It will also be of interest to mathematicians and scientists who would like to learn about the interaction between mathematics and industry, what type of problems arise, how they are modeled, etc. Scientists working in industry may also be interested in the book as they discover that some of the topics dealt with are connected to their own work
Mathematical modeling of biological processes by Avner Friedman( Book )

Introduction to mathematical biology by Ching Shan Chou( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book is based on a one semester course that the authors have been teaching for several years, and includes two sets of case studies. The first includes chemostat models, predator-prey interaction, competition among species, the spread of infectious diseases, and oscillations arising from bifurcations. In developing these topics, readers will also be introduced to the basic theory of ordinary differential equations, and how to work with MATLAB without having any prior programming experience. The second set of case studies were adapted from recent and current research papers to the level of the students. Topics have been selected based on public health interest. This includes the risk of atherosclerosis associated with high cholesterol levels, cancer and immune interactions, cancer therapy, and tuberculosis. Readers will experience how mathematical models and their numerical simulations can provide explanations that guide biological and biomedical research. Considered to be the undergraduate companion to the more advanced book "Mathematical Modeling of Biological Processes" (A. Friedman, C.-Y. Kao, Springer - 2014), this book is geared towards undergraduate students with little background in mathematics and no biological background
