The Handbook of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists covers the main fields of mathematics and focuses on the methods used for obtaining solutions of various classes of mathematical equations that underlie the mathematical modeling of numerous phenomena and processes in science and technology. To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the preeminent authors outline the material in a simplified, schematic manner, avoiding special terminology wherever possible. Organized in ascending order of complexity, the material is divided into two parts. The first part is a coherent survey of the most important definitions, formulas, equations, methods, and theorems. It covers arithmetic, elementary and analytic geometry, algebra, differential and integral calculus, special functions, calculus of variations, and probability theory. Numerous specific examples clarify the methods for solving problems and equations. The second part provides many in-depth mathematical tables, including those of exact solutions of various types of equations. This concise, comprehensive compendium of mathematical definitions, formulas, and theorems provides the foundation for exploring scientific and technological phenomena.

This special two-volume set of Operations Research contains both Introduction to Mathematical Programming and Introduction to Probability Models is available. With seven bonus chapters that appear only in this split-volume edition—plus a special set of two Student’s Suite CD-ROMs (including software not available with the single-volume edition)—the two-volume set is the most comprehensive, complete version of Winston’s best-selling text for the operations research course. Winston’s books owe much of their success to a practical orientation and consistent emphasis on model formulation and model building. They move beyond a mere study of algorithms without sacrificing the rigor that faculty desire.Wayne Winston and Munirpallam Venkataramanan’s Volume One: Introduction to Mathematical Programming introduces students to the art and the science of deterministic modeling in operations research. Focusing on real-world applications and cases that integrate topics from across several chapters, Volume One is a practical introduction to spreadsheet modeling and the leading commercial software applications that accompany the book. Special bonus chapters include “Heuristic Techniques,” “Solving Optimization Problems with the Evolutionary Solver,” and “Neural Networks.”Winston’s Volume Two: Introduction to Probability Models provides a balanced introduction to fundamental concepts of probability modeling, and addresses their applications to financial engineering, computational simulation, and manufacturing. Special bonus chapters include “Spreadsheet Simulation and Optimization with RiskOptimizer®,” “Option Pricing and Real Options,” “Portfolio Risk, Optimization and Hedging,” and “Brownian Motion, Stochastic Calculus, and Optimal Control.”Wayne Winston is a respected author, award-winning teacher, accomplished consultant, and prodigious researcher. His current interest is in showing how spreadsheet models can be used to solve problems in all areas of busin
