About this book


This book contains contributions by sixteen editors of a single journal specialised in real-world applications of mathematics, particularly in engineering. These papers serve to indicate that applying mathematics can be a very exciting and intellectually rewarding activity. Among the applied fields we note Thermal and Marangoni convection. High-pressure gas-discharge lamps, Potential flow in a channel, Thin airfoil problems, Cooling of a fibre, Moving-contact-line problems, Spot disturbance in boundary layers, Fibre-reinforced composites, Numerics of nonuniform grids, Stewartson layers on a rotating disk, Causality and the radiation condition, Nonlinear elastic membranes, Acoustics in bubbly liquids, Oscillation of a floating body in a viscous fluid, Electromagnetics of superconducting composites. Applied mathematicians, theoretical physicists and engineers will find a lot in this book that will be of interest to them.
