Numerical Methods and Software Tools in Industrial Mathematics
The main feature of this text is the discussion on how modern concepts in computer science can be applied in order to develop scientific software that is easier to extend, maintain and use than the more traditional counterparts. In addition, models and methods for challenging problems in industrial mathematics ranging from multiphase flow problems and modelling of solidification processes to surface modelling based on geological or medical data, are derived and discussed in the light of the software concepts.
