A mathematical model of a physical system provides the engineer with the insight and intuitive understanding required to make efficient system design changes or other modifications. In this context, a simple formula is often worth a thousand numerical simulations, and connections between different control parameters can be immediately revealed that might otherwise take hours or weeks to deduce from a computational analysis. This book supplies the undergraduate engineer with the basic mathematical tools for developing and understanding such models, and is also suitable as a review for engineering graduate students. A firm grasp of the topics covered will also enable the working engineer (educated to bachelor's degree level) to understand, write and otherwise make sensible use of technical reports and papers.

Oreo is a rascal dog who loves to make trouble for his goody goody adopted brother Raffle, who keeps saying they're both aliens from outer space. Best if read after Dog Aliens 1: Raffle's Name. All the Dog Aliens stories have happy endings, and no dogs ever die in them (but wolves do). For kids aged 9-12.
