Publisher Synopsis

"The treasures [in the Princeton Companion to Applied Mathematics] go on and on."--Lloyd N. Trefethen, SIAM Review "[An] impressive volume... It has been a major project that eventually resulted in this amazing product."--Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society "Safe to say there is something for everyone in The Princeton Companion to Applied Mathematics."--Alan Stevens, Mathematics Today "[A] valuable addition to the mathematics library of any university or research institution."--Library Journal "Higham and his associate editors ... have produced an admirably readable and informative volume, which anyone interested in applied mathematics would be well advised to consult or--better still--to own!"--James Case, SIAM News "A unique work full of beautiful and interesting mathematics. It is surely a valuable resource for exposing young mathematicians to possible areas of applied mathematics for research and further study. Without a doubt PCAM is an important contribution to the mathematical literature."--Jason M. Graham, MathSciNet "[A]n excellent reference that successfully compiles into a readable and engaging form the broad range of topics that an applied mathematician might encounter in their career... As a reader, I find myself flipping through the pages and becoming engaged in new and interesting ideas from the world of applied math."--Joanna Bieri, MAA Reviews "A handy one-volume reference for applied mathematics that cuts across several disciplines within an academic framework."--Lesley S.J.
