SIAM Monographs

About the Series

In 1997, SIAM began a new series on mathematical modeling and computation. Books in the series develop a focused topic from its genesis to the current state of the art; these books

• present modern mathematical developments with direct
   applications in science and engineering;
• describe mathematical issues arising in modern applications;
• develop mathematical models of topical physical, chemical,
   or biological systems;
• present new and efficient computational tools and techniques
   that have direct applications in science and engineering; and
• illustrate the continuing, integrated roles of mathematical,
   scientific, and computational investigation.

Although sophisticated ideas are presented, the writing style is popular rather than formal. Texts are intended to be read by audiences with little more than a bachelor's degree in mathematics or engineering. Thus, they are suitable for use in graduate mathematics, science, and engineering courses.

By design, the material is multidisciplinary. As such, we hope to foster cooperation and collabora- tion between mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, and scientists. This is a difficult task because different terminology is used for the same concept in different disciplines. Nevertheless, we believe we have been successful and hope that you enjoy the texts in the series.
