Applied Mathematics by Example
by Jeremy Pickles
Publisher: BookBoon 2010
Applied Mathematics refers to the study of the physical world using mathematics. This book approaches the subject from an oft-neglected historical perspective. A particular aim is to make accessible to students Newton's vision of a single system of law governing the falling of an apple and the orbital motion of the moon.
