Springs of scientific creativity : essays on founders of modern science by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
15 editions published between 1979 and 1984 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematician Henri Poincaré was boarding a bus when he realized that the transformations of non-Euclidean geometry were just those he needed in his research on the theory of functions. He did not have to interrupt his conversation, still less to verify the equation in detail; his insight was complete at that point. Poincaré's insight into his own creativity -- his awareness that preliminary cogitation and the working of the subconscious had prepared his mind for an intuitive flash of recognition -- is just one of many possible analyses of scientific creativity, a subject as fascinating as it is elusive. The authors of this book have chosen to search for the springs of scientific creativity by examining the lives and work of a dozen innovative thinkers in the fields of mathematics, physics, and chemistry from the seventeenth down to the mid-twentieth century
Vectors, tensors, and the basic equations of fluid mechanics by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
35 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematical modelling techniques by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
30 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematical modelling techniques explains the process by which to arrive at useful mathematical representations, thus showing the reader how to formulate the necessary equations from a given non-mathematical situation. The heart of the book gives ways in which the equations can be made dimensionless and reduced to their least number and simplest form. Numerous examples are given in the text, and three particular situations are discussed in detail in the appendices. The emphasis throughout is on the craft of mathematical modelling, rather than on solutions of the mathematical equations themselves. In this way the author makes explicit the skills which an experienced mathematical modeller develops and uses almost unconsciously, so the volume should be of particular value to the beginner and of interest to the practitioner
Discrete dynamic programming : an introduction to the optimization of staged processes by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
11 editions published in 1964 in English and Undetermined and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The optimal design of chemical reactors; a study in dynamic programming by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
14 editions published between 1961 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elementary chemical reactor analysis by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
22 editions published between 1969 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematical modeling : a chemical engineer's perspective by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematical modeling is the art and craft of building a system of equations that is both sufficiently complex to do justice to physical reality and sufficiently simple to give real insight into the situation. Mathematical Modeling: A Chemical Engineer's Perspective provides an elementary introduction to the craft by one of the century's most distinguished practitioners. Though the book is written from a chemical engineering viewpoint, the principles and pitfalls are common to all mathematical modeling of physical systems. Seventeen of the author's frequently cited papers are reprinted to illustrate applications to convective diffusion, formal chemical kinetics, heat and mass transfer, and the philosophy of modeling. An essay of acknowledgments, asides, and footnotes captures personal reflections on academic life and personalities. * Describes pitfalls as well as principles of mathematical modeling * Presents twenty examples of engineering problems * Features seventeen reprinted papers * Presents personal reflections on some of the great natural philosophers * Emphasizes modeling procedures that precede extensive calculations

Patterns and dynamics in reactive media by Rutherford Aris ( Book )
8 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ever since the seminal works on traveling waves and morphogenesis by Fisher, by Kolmogorov, Petrovski and Piscunov, and by Turing, scientists from many disciplines have been fascinated by questions concerning the formation of steady or dynamic patterns in reactive media. Contributions to this volume have been made by chemists, chemical engineers, mathematicians (both pure and applied), and physicists. The topics covered range from reports of experimental studies, through descriptions of numerical experiments, to rather abstract theoretical investigations, each exhibiting different aspects of a very diverse field
