Generalized Calculus with Applications to Matter and Forces / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Taylor & Francis
Part of a new series of books for engineers and scientists who are taking advanced mathematics courses, this work presents differential equations from an applied point of view. Like the other volumes in this series, the book provides an overview of the mathematical modeling of physical phenomena and engineering processes. It explores how differential equations can be applied to various phenomena affecting engineering analysis and design. The author presents the laws of physics to formulate problems, mathematical methods to solve them, and examples of interpretation of results. He covers the structural deformation of vibration by aerodynamic loads (aeroelasticity) as well as sound generation, propagation, adsorption, and scattering.
