Product description

Review

Easy to read and engaging. (Frost Magazine)

a compact ... pocket book that is entertaining to read (Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society)

What a marvelous little book! With snappy writing, illuminating graphics, fascinating examples, unconventional insights, and goofy humor, Alain Goriely conveys what modern applied mathematics truly is and why it matters. (Professor Steven Strogatz, Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics, Cornell University)

The book is an extremely valuable source of inspiration about the importance of applied mathematics. (zbMATH)

About the Author

Shortly after receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Brussels, Alain Goriely joined the Department of Mathematics at the University of Arizona. In 2010, he moved to the University of Oxford as the Chair of Mathematical Modelling. He is currently the Director of the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. At the scientific level, he is an applied mathematician with broad interests in mathematics, mechanics, sciences, and engineering, which led him to collaborate closely with researchers from many disciplines. His current research includes the mechanics of biological growth and its applications to plants and physiology; the modelling of new photovoltaic devices; the foundations of elasticity; the modelling of cancer; the mechanics of the human brain; and more generally the development of mathematical methods for applied sciences.
