Computational Modeling and Mathematics Applied to the Physical Sciences
Publisher: National Academy Press 1984
Number of pages: 108
As illustration, we examine several deep theoretical problems, including turbulence and combustion. At the frontiers of attack on these problems we discover the limitations imposed by our current understanding of model formulation and computational capability. We examine modeling problems and algorithms adapted both to specific features of the desired solution and to the computer architecture. We also examine computer architecture and component design and manufacture as a mathematical modeling problem.

This applied mathematics text is primarily for final year mathematics major and minor students. The main emphasis is on mathematical modeling, with biology the sole application area. It is assumed that students have no knowledge of biology.

This is a short book about the principles of data analysis. The emphasis is on why things are done rather than on exactly how to do them. If you already know something about the subject, then working through this book will deepen your understanding.
by Sanjoy Mahajan - The MIT Press
The book about the art of guessing results and solving problems without doing a proof or an exact calculation. Techniques include extreme-cases reasoning, dimensional analysis, successive approximation, discretization, generalization, etc.
by J. E. Parker - Bookboon
This volume is the second of a three part series of texts taken during a first-year university course. Tutorial questions with fully worked solutions structured on a weekly basis to help the students to self-pace themselves are used.
