Up to this point in your career you have been asked to use mathematics to solve
rather elementary problems in the physical sciences. However, when you graduate
and become a working scientist or engineer you will often be confronted with
complex real-world problems. Understanding the material in this book is a first
step toward developing the mathematical tools that you will need to solve such
The electronic component of the book is based on the widely used and highly praised Mathematica software package.
Each chapter of the bookis a Mathematica notebook with links to web-based material.
The methods are applied to a range of problems taken from physics and engineering.
The book covers elementary and advaned numerical methods used in modern scientific computing.
Innovations in hardware architecture, like hyper-threading or multicore processors, mean that parallel computing resources are available for inexpensive desktop computers. In only a few years, many standard software products will be based on concepts of parallel programming implemented on such hardware, and the range of applications will be...
The book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 13th EAI International Conference on Communications and Networking, held in October 2018 in Chengdu, China. The 71 papers presented were carefully selected from 114 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on wireless communications and networking, next...
This book highlights cutting-edge research in the field of network science, offering scientists, researchers, students and practitioners a unique update on the latest advances in theory, together with a wealth of applications. It presents the peer-reviewed proceedings of the VII International Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications...
This book addresses the use of Mathematica as a symbolic manipulator, a programming language, and a general tool for knowledge representation. The main focus of the book, however, is on the use of Mathematica as a programming language.
This book introduces the concept of smart city as the potential solution to the challenges created by urbanization. The Internet of Things (IoT) offers novel features with minimum human intervention in smart cities. This book describes different components of Internet of Things (IoT) for smart cities including sensor technologies,...
