Louis Theodore and Charles Prochaska, "Introduction to Mathematical Methods for Environmental Engineers and Scientists"
English | ISBN: 1119363497 | 2018 | 498 pages | PDF | 6 MB

The authorsR42; aim is to offer the reader the fundamentals of numerous mathematical methods with accompanying practical environmental applications.

The material in this book addresses mathematical calculations common to both the environmental science and engineering professionals. It provides the reader with nearly 100 solved illustrative examples and the interrelationship between both theory and applications is emphasized in nearly all of the 35 chapters. One key feature of this book is that the solutions to the problems are presented in a stand-alone manner. Throughout the book, the illustrative examples are laid out in such a way as to develop the readerR42;s technical understanding of the subject in question, with more difficult examples located at or near the end of each set.

In presenting the text material, the authors have stressed the pragmatic approach in the application of mathematical tools to assist the reader in grasping the role of mathematical skills in environmental problem-solving situations. The book is divided up into 5 parts:

Introduction; Analytical Analysis; Numerical Analysis; Statistical Analysis; and Optimization.
The analytical analysis includes graphical, trial-and-error, search, etc. methods.
The numerical analysis includes integration, differentiation, differential equation, Monte Carlo, etc.
The statistical analysis includes probability, probability distribution, decision trees, regression analysis, etc.
Optimization includes both traditional approaches and linear programming.

This book serves two main audiences: As a reference book for practicing environmental engineers, environmental scientists, and technicians involved with the environment; it may also be used as a textbook for beginning environmental students.
