Problems in Applied, Industrial and Engineering Mathematics
This book contains contributions by 16 editors of a single journal specializing in real-world applications of mathematics, particulary in engineering. Among the applied fields covered are thermal and Marangoni convection, high-pressure gas-discharge lamps, potential flow in a channel, thin airfoil problems, cooling of a fibre, moving-contact-line problems, spot disturbances in boundary layers, fibre-reinforced composites, numerics of nonuniform grids, Stewartson layers on a rotating disk, causality and the radiation control, nonlinear elastic membranes, acoustics in bubbly liquids, oscillation of a floating body is a viscous fluid, and electromagnetics of superconducting composites. Applied mathematicians, theoretical physicists and engineers should find this text of interest.
