Book Description

January 10, 2003 0821829548 978-0821829547
Written by a leading specialist in the area of atmosphere/ocean science (AOS), this book presents an excellent introduction to this important topic. The goals of these lecture notes, based on courses presented by the author at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, are to introduce mathematicians to the fascinating and important area of atmosphere/ocean science (AOS) and, conversely, to develop a mathematical viewpoint on basic topics in AOS of interest to the disciplinary AOS community, ranging from graduate students to researchers. The lecture notes emphasize the serendipitous connections between applied mathematics and geophysical flows in the style of modern applied mathematics, where rigorous mathematical analysis as well as asymptotic, qualitative, and numerical modeling all interact to ease the understanding of physical phenomena.Reading these lecture notes does not require a previous course in fluid dynamics, although a serious reader should supplement them with additional information on geophysical flows, as suggested in the preface. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers working in interdisciplinary areas between mathematics and AOS. It is excellent for supplementary course reading or independent study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Majda Courant Lectures June 5, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A handy and fairly in depth introduction and survey of PDEs and wave theory for the atmosphere and ocean sciences, Majda does a concise yet clear job of presenting the fundamental aspects of the classic problems seen in today's research. He presents a well organized and methodical understanding and solution of the main PDEs and for that reason serves as a great reference for those looking to study the geophysical fluids realm and get a good handle on some involved but fundamental starting points for most problems dealth with in current work. The only downside is that as a "lecture" set of notes it suffers from enough typos and errors that it can be distracting. However, for any discerning mathematician or physicist who is versed enough in basic math (some analysis, operator algebra, matrix theory), one can easily pinpoint the errors and quickly scribble in the corrections without losing traction on the work. A fantastic book written by one of the leading researchers in the field of geophysical fluid problems.
