Mathematics for Civil Engineers provides a concise introduction to the fundamental concepts of mathematics that are closely related to civil engineering. By using an informal and theorem-free approach with more than 150 step-by-step examples, all the key mathematical concepts and techniques are introduced. Thus users of this textbook will gain the basic knowledge and understanding required for their work. Exercises are included In each chapter to give readers the opportunity to apply their new knowledge; the answers to these dozens of exercises are provided at the end of the book. Topics include functions, trigonometrical functions, equations, polynomials, vectors and matrices, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, tensors, differentiation, integration, advanced calculus such as double integrals and special integrals, complex numbers, differential equations, Fourier series and transforms, Laplace transforms, probability and statistics, curve-fitting and linear regression. Advanced topics include partial differential equations and integral equations, root-finding algorithms for nonlinear equations, numerical methods for solving differential equations, optimization and nonlinear optimization. Mathematics for Civil Engineers allows undergraduates and civil engineers to develop a necessary, essential, knowledge of engineering mathematics. Many of the worked examples are chosen to reflect situations and problems in civil engineering practise. Examples include moment of inertia, second moment of area, beam buckling, harmonic motion and forced harmonic motion, elasticity, transfer function, waves and heat transfer, maximization and minimization and many others. All these topics and examples will help readers to gain more insight and to build sufficient confidence in applying engineering mathematics for problem solving in real engineering situations. This book may also be useful for practitioners in other engineering disciplines to improve their basic mathematical skills.

An Introduction to the Mathematical Theory of Finite Elements

Author: J. T. Oden,J. N. Reddy

Publisher: Courier Corporation

This introduction to the theory of Sobolev spaces and Hilbert space methods in partial differential equations is geared toward readers of modest mathematical backgrounds. It offers coherent, accessible demonstrations of the use of these techniques in developing the foundations of the theory of finite element approximations. J. T. Oden is Director of the Institute for Computational Engineering & Sciences (ICES) at the University of Texas at Austin, and J. N. Reddy is a Professor of Engineering at Texas A&M University. They developed this essentially self-contained text from their seminars and courses for students with diverse educational backgrounds. Their effective presentation begins with introductory accounts of the theory of distributions, Sobolev spaces, intermediate spaces and duality, the theory of elliptic equations, and variational boundary value problems. The second half of the text explores the theory of finite element interpolation, finite element methods for elliptic equations, and finite element methods for initial boundary value problems. Detailed proofs of the major theorems appear throughout the text, in addition to numerous examples.

Introduction to Mathematical Thinking

In the twenty-first century, everyone can benefit from being able to think mathematically. This is not the same as "doing math." The latter usually involves the application of formulas, procedures, and symbolic manipulations; mathematical thinking is a powerful way of thinking about things in the world -- logically, analytically, quantitatively, and with precision. It is not a natural way of thinking, but it can be learned.Mathematicians, scientists, and engineers need to "do math," and it takes many years of college-level education to learn all that is required. Mathematical thinking is valuable to everyone, and can be mastered in about six weeks by anyone who has completed high school mathematics. Mathematical thinking does not have to be about mathematics at all, but parts of mathematics provide the ideal target domain to learn how to think that way, and that is the approach taken by this short but valuable book.The book is written primarily for first and second year students of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at colleges and universities, and for high school students intending to study a STEM subject at university. Many students encounter difficulty going from high school math to college-level mathematics. Even if they did well at math in school, most are knocked off course for a while by the shift in emphasis, from the K-12 focus on mastering procedures to the "mathematical thinking" characteristic of much university mathematics. Though the majority survive the transition, many do not. To help them make the shift, colleges and universities often have a "transition course." This book could serve as a textbook or a supplementary source for such a course.Because of the widespread applicability of mathematical thinking, however, the book has been kept short and written in an engaging style, to make it accessible to anyone who seeks to extend and improve their analytic thinking skills. Going beyond a basic grasp of analytic thinking that everyone can benefit from, the STEM student who truly masters mathematical thinking will find that college-level mathematics goes from being confusing, frustrating, and at times seemingly impossible, to making sense and being hard but doable.Dr. Keith Devlin is a professional mathematician at Stanford University and the author of 31 previous books and over 80 research papers. His books have earned him many awards, including the Pythagoras Prize, the Carl Sagan Award, and the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics Communications Award. He is known to millions of NPR listeners as "the Math Guy" on Weekend Edition with Scott Simon. He writes a popular monthly blog "Devlin's Angle" for the Mathematical Association of America, another blog under the name "profkeithdevlin", and also blogs on various topics for the Huffington Post.

Introduction to the Foundations of Applied Mathematics

FOAM. This acronym has been used for over ?fty years at Rensselaer to designate an upper-division course entitled, Foundations of Applied Ma- ematics. This course was started by George Handelman in 1956, when he came to Rensselaer from the Carnegie Institute of Technology. His objective was to closely integrate mathematical and physical reasoning, and in the p- cess enable students to obtain a qualitative understanding of the world we live in. FOAM was soon taken over by a young faculty member, Lee Segel. About this time a similar course, Introduction to Applied Mathematics, was introduced by Chia-Ch’iao Lin at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Together Lin and Segel, with help from Handelman, produced one of the landmark textbooks in applied mathematics, Mathematics Applied to - terministic Problems in the Natural Sciences. This was originally published in 1974, and republished in 1988 by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, in their Classics Series. This textbook comes from the author teaching FOAM over the last few years. In this sense, it is an updated version of the Lin and Segel textbook.
