It starts with a knowledge of algebra, chemistry, and some physics, and builds on current knowledge towards more practical problems. The ultimate goal is to obtain a book containing information about all of the major processes a chemical engineer may encounter as well as some insight into their analysis, which is essential for design. The book is designed as an introduction to the subject and therefore tends to stay away from the more complicated mathematics, as the relatively steady-state black box analysis can be difficult enough for students (and teachers!) to solve."</p>Mon, 15 Mar 2010 22:00:37 GMTVarious Authors WikiBooksMathematical Reasoning: Writing and Proof

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=644878
<p>This research studies the accession of a transition country to the World Trade Organization on the case of Ukraine. Quantitative results are obtained by building a Computable General Equilibrium model in the mathematical programming language General Algebraic Modelling System (GAMS). Four scenarios are simulated: 1) import tariffs reform; 2) improvement of exports access; 3) improvement of investment climate and 4) the scenario that combines previous three, or a full WTO accession.</p><p>This book has two parts. The first part talks about general characteristics of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) as well as common steps that have to be taken during the accession process. Theoretical studies related to the WTO activities are also presented. Finally, Part I of this book discusses one of the most useful methods of examining economic consequences of being WTO member, namely Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) Models. Part II continues analysis and shows application of CGE model to a specific case study. It scrutinises accession of Ukraine to the WTO and discusses possible economic impact of such step. Concluding remarks for the whole book are given at the end of Part II.</p>Wed, 04 Apr 2012 15:16:34 GMTIgor Eromenko BookBoon.comActive Calculus
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1084071
<p>c'Several fundamental ideas in calculus are more than 2000 years old. As a formal subdiscipline of mathematics, calculus was first introduced and developed in the late 1600s, with key independent contributions from Sir Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Mathematicians agree that the subject has been understood rigorously since the work of Augustin Louis Cauchy and Karl Weierstrass in the mid 1800s when the field of modern analysis was developed, in part to make sense of the infinitely small quantities on which calculus rests. Hence, as a body of knowledge calculus has been completely understood by experts for at least 150 years. The discipline is one of our great human intellectual achievements: among many spectacular ideas, calculus models how objects fall under the forces of gravity and wind resistance, explains how to compute areas and volumes of interesting shapes, enables us to work rigorously with infinitely small and infinitely large quantities, and connects the varying rates at which quantities change to the total change in the quantities themselves.</p>
<p>While each author of a calculus textbook certainly offers her own creative perspective on the subject, it is hardly the case that many of the ideas she presents are new. Indeed, the mathematics community broadly agrees on what the main ideas of calculus are, as well as their justification and their importance; the core parts of nearly all calculus textbooks are very similar. As such, it is our opinion that in the 21st century – an age where the internet permits seamless and immediate transmission of information – no one should be required to purchase a calculus text to read, to use for a class, or to find a coherent collection of problems to solve. Calculus belongs to humankind, not any individual author or publishing company. Thus, a main purpose of this work is to present a new calculus text that is free. In addition, instructors who are looking for a calculus text should have the opportunity to download the source files and make modifications that they see fit; thus this text is opensource. Since August 2013, Active Calculus has been endorsed by the American Institute of Mathematics and its Open Textbook Initiative: <a href="http://aimath.org/textbooks/.'" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://aimath.org/textbooks/.'</a></p>Mon, 30 Nov 2015 21:57:26 GMTMatthew Boelkins; David Austin; Steven Schlicker Grand Valley State University; Grand Valley State University; Grand Valley State UniversityAdvanced Problems in Mathematics: Preparing for University
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1330065
<p>This book is intended to help students prepare for entrance examinations in mathematics and scientific subjects, including STEP (Sixth Term Examination Papers). STEP examinations are used by Cambridge colleges as the basis for conditional offers in mathematics and sometimes in other mathematics-related subjects. They are also used by Warwick University, and many other mathematics departments recommend that their applicants practice on past papers to become accustomed to university-style mathematics.</p>
<p>Advanced Problems in Mathematics is recommended as preparation for any undergraduate mathematics course, even for students who do not plan to take the Sixth Term Examination Paper. The questions analysed in this book are all based on recent STEP questions selected to address the syllabus for Papers I and II, which is the A-level core (i.e. C1 to C4) with a few additions. Each question is followed by a comment and a full solution. The comments direct the reader’s attention to key points and put the question in its true mathematical context. The solutions point students to the methodology required to address advanced mathematical problems critically and independently.</p>
<p>This book is a must read for any student wishing to apply to scientific subjects at university level and for anybody interested in advanced mathematics.</p>

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1212193
<p>This book discusses how, in a practical way, to overcome the limitations of the lean approach to transforming manufacturing systems as well as related in-plant, plant-to-plant, and plant-tocustomer logistics. The primary tools in this regard are algebra based mathematical models and computer-based systems simulation as well as the integration of these two. Concepts, methods, and application studies related to designing and operating such systems are presented. Emphasis is on learning how to effectively make design, planning, and operations decisions by using a model based analysis and synthesis process. This process places equal emphasis on building models and performing analyses. This first part of the book discusses this process as well as the methods required for performing each of its steps.</p>
<p>The beyond lean approach is introduced in chapter 1 and illustrated with an industrial application. One proven process for performing a beyond lean study is presented. Some principles that guide such studies are discussed.</p>
<p>Methods are considered in chapters 2 through 5: model building, the computations needed to simulate a model and experimentation with models as well as modeling time delays and other random quantities. The basic logic used in simulation models is discussed. A process by which a distribution function can be selected to represent a random quantity, in the presence or absence of data, is given. An overview of the internal operations of a simulation engine is presented.</p>Wed, 03 Aug 2016 18:45:58 GMTCharles Standridge Grand Valley State UniversityChemWiki: The Dynamic Chemistry E-textbook

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=800962
<p>'This book is an introduction to combinatorial mathematics, also known as combinatorics. The book focuses especially but not exclusively on the part of combinatorics that mathematicians refer to as “counting.” The book consists almost entirely of problems. Some of the problems are designed to lead you to think about a concept, others are designed to help you ﬁgure out a concept and state a theorem about it, while still others ask you to prove the theorem. Other problems give you a chance to use a theorem you have proved. From time to time there is a discussion that pulls together some of the things you have learned or introduces a new idea for you to work with. Many of the problems are designed to build up your intuition for how combinatorial mathematics works. There are problems that some people will solve quickly, and there are problems that will take days of thought for everyone. Probably the best way to use this book is to work on a problem until you feel you are not making progress and then go on to the next one. Think about the problem you couldn’t get as you do other things. The next chance you get, discuss the problem you are stymied on with other members of the class. Often you will all feel you’ve hit dead ends, but when you begin comparing notes and listening carefully to each other, you will see more than one approach to the problem and be able to make some progress.</p><p>In fact, after comparing notes you may realize that there is more than one way to interpret the problem. In this case your ﬁrst step should be to think together about what the problem is actually asking you to do. You may have learned in school that for every problem you are given, there is a method that has already been taught to you, and you are supposed to ﬁgure out which method applies and apply it. That is not the case here. Based on some simpliﬁed examples, you will discover the method for yourself. Later on, you may recognize a pattern that suggests you should try to use this method again.'</p>Mon, 14 Oct 2013 22:29:33 GMTKenneth P. Bogart Dartmouth UniversityDrug-Acceptor Interactions

<p>According to the author, "The book is intended as a help for students and researchers in the biomedical fields, enabling them to choose the best model for their dose-response data obtained from wet-lab experiments. The focus is on how to interpret and handle dose-response data, with a recommendation to down-play analytical methods developed before the era of personal computers, such as the Lineweaver–Burk and Scatchard data conversion, the null-methods by Gaddum and Schild, or the use of meaningless mathematical manipulations, as for instance the implementation of a Hill-exponentiation. Instead, when fishing for system constants, the readers learn how to get access to the free-way of analytical tools that offer forward formulated physical functions to be fixed with non-linear fitting procedures. The approach I have taken is different from that of many other textbooks on the analysis of equilibrium dose-responses, which follow in the tradition of data-linearization developed more than 70 years ago. A book in point is Segel's ‘Enzyme kinetics’ (1975), reissued as a non-revised edition in 1993 and still considered a standard textbook on enzyme kinetics: it lacks almost completely in analysis of the so-called two-state models."</p>Fri, 02 Apr 2010 20:27:24 GMTNiels BindslevElementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1374821
<p><em>Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems</em>is written for students in science, engineering, and mathematics who have completed calculus through partial differentiation.</p>
<ul>
<li>An elementary text should be written so the student can read it with comprehension without too much pain. I have tried to put myself in the student’s place, and have chosen to err on the side of too much detail rather than not enough. </li>
<li>An elementary text can’t be better than its exercises. This text includes 1695 numbered exercises, many with several parts. They range in difficulty from routine to very challenging. </li>
<li>An elementary text should be written in an informal but mathematically accurate way, illustrated by appropriate graphics. I have tried to formulate mathematical concepts succinctly in language that students can understand. I have minimized the number of explicitly stated theorems and definitions, preferring to deal with concepts in a more conversational way, copiously illustrated by 250 completely worked out examples. Where appropriate, concepts and results are depicted in 144 figures.</li>
</ul>
<p>Although I believe that the computer is an immensely valuable tool for learning, doing, and writing mathematics, the selection and treatment of topics in this text reflects my pedagogical orientation along traditional lines. However, I have incorporated what I believe to be the best use of modern technology, so you can select the level of technology that you want to include in your course. The text includes 336 exercises – identified by the symbols C and C/G – that call for graphics or computation and graphics. There are also 73 laboratory exercises – identified by L – that require extensive use of technology. In addition, several sections include informal advice on the use of technology. If you prefer not to emphasize technology, simply ignore these exercises and the advice.</p>Tue, 27 Mar 2018 14:58:38 GMTWilliam F.

<p>According to the author, "It is by no means a comprehensive guide to all the mathematics an engineer might encounter during the course of his or her degree. The aim is more to highlight and explain some areas commonly found difficult, such as calculus, and to ease the transition from school level to university level mathematics, where sometimes the subject matter is similar, but the emphasis is usually different. The early sections on functions and single variable calculus are in this spirit. The later sections on multivariate calculus, differential equations and complex functions are more typically found on a first or second year undergraduate course, depending upon the university. The necessary linear algebra for multivariate calculus is also outlined. More advanced topics which have been omitted, but which you will certainly come across, are partial differential equations, Fourier transforms and Laplace transforms."</p>Wed, 21 Sep 2011 20:50:34 GMTMichael Batty BookBoon.com
