Description

This book presents an introduction to a wide range of techniques and applications for dynamical mathematical modelling, modelling that is useful in studying how things change over time. The book uses topics from algebra and encourages students to develop a different way of thinking about mathematics and how to use it in their field of interest. Their are no mathematical prerequisites beyond algebra.show more
