Springs of scientific creativity : essays on founders of modern science

Rutherford Aris(

Mathematician Henri Poincaré was boarding a bus when he realized that the transformations of nonEuclidean 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 midtwentieth century

Mathematical modelling techniques
by
Rutherford Aris(
Book
)
33 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 nonmathematical 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

Mathematical modeling : a chemical engineer's perspective
by
Rutherford Aris(
Book
)
14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 374 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.

Patterns and dynamics in reactive media
by
Rutherford Aris(
Book
)
9 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 185 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

Theory and application of single equations
by
HyunKu Rhee(
)
7 editions published between 1986 and 2001 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This first volume of a highly regarded twovolume text is fully usable on its own. After going over some of the preliminaries, the authors discuss mathematical models that yield firstorder partial differential equations; motivations, classifications, and some methods of solution; linear and semilinear equations; chromatographic equations with finite rate expressions; homogeneous and nonhomogeneous quasilinear equations; formation and propagation of shocks; conservation equations, weak solutions, and shock layers; nonlinear equations; and variational problems. Exercises appear at the end of most sections. This volume is geared to advanced undergraduates or firstyear grad students with a sound understanding of calculus and elementary ordinary differential equations. 1986 edition. 189 blackandwhite illustrations.
