"The editors have done an impressive job of unifying the style, notation, and presentation of these reports, and many read as good short stories for the mathematically initiated....the book is a must for an academic library." Choice
Industrial Mathematics is growing enormously in popularity around the world. Presented as a series of case studies by some of the world's most active and successful industrial mathematicians, this volume shows clearly how the process of mathematical collaboration with industry can not only work successfully for the industrial partner, but also lead to interesting and important mathematics. Thirteen different problems are considered, ranging from cooking of cereal to the analysis of epidemic waves in animal populations. This book is suitable for all final year undergraduates, master's students, and Ph.D. students who are working on practical mathematical modeling.
