Consider a Cylindrical Cow : More adventures in environmental problem solving Paperback / softback
by John Harte
Following in the tradition of Consider a Spherical Cow, the Cylindrical Cow will help students achieve a whole new level ofenvironmental modeling and problem solving. Featuring a new core set of 25fully worked-out problems, this book uses real problems in environmental sciencerather than relying on the more traditional "cookbook" problems foundin textbooks. It is organized according to five thematic sections onprobability, optimization, scaling, differential equations, and stability &feedback.
Each section begins with a general treatment of the relevantmathematical concepts, and concludes with a range of homework exercises to helpstudents sharpen their modeling skills. Like its predecessor, this bookwill empower students with the mathematical skills needed to cut through thecomplexity of real-world problems.
