Focusingon five main groups of interdisciplinary problems, this book covers a widerange of topics in mathematical modeling, computational science and appliedmathematics. It presents a wealth of new results in the development of modelingtheories and methods, advancing diverse areas of applications and promotinginterdisciplinary interactions between mathematicians, scientists, engineersand representatives from other disciplines.
Thebook offers a valuable source of methods, ideas, and tools developed for avariety of disciplines, including the natural and social sciences, medicine,engineering, and technology. Original results are presented on both thefundamental and applied level, accompanied by an ample number of real-worldproblems and examples emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature and universalityof mathematical modeling, and providing an excellent outline of today’schallenges. Mathematical modeling,with applied and computational methods and tools, plays a fundamental role inmodern science and engineering. It provides a primary and ubiquitous tool inthe context making new discoveries, as well as in the development of newtheories and techniques for solving key problems arising in scientific andengineering applications.
Thecontributions, which are the product of two highly successful meetingsheld jointly in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada on the main campus of Wilfrid LaurierUniversity in June 2015, i.e. the International Conference on AppliedMathematics, Modeling and Computational Science, and the Annual Meeting of theCanadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics (CAIMS), make the book a valuable resource for any reader interestedin a broader overview of the methods, ideas and tools involved in mathematicaland computational approaches developed for other disciplines, including thenatural and social sciences, engineering and technology.
