Book Description

Applied Mathematics in Engineering and Reliability contains papers presented at the International Conference on Applied Mathematics in Engineering and Reliability (ICAMER 2016, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam, 4-6 May 2016). The book covers a wide range of topics within mathematics applied in reliability, risk and engineering, including:

- Risk and Reliability Analysis Methods

- Maintenance Optimization

- Bayesian Methods

- Monte Carlo Methods for Parallel Computing of Reliability and Risk

- Advanced Mathematical Methods in Engineering

- Methods for solutions of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

- Statistics and Applied Statistics, etc.

The application areas range from Nuclear, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering to Information Technology and Communication, Safety Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Finance or Health and Medicine. The papers cover both theory and applications, which are focused to a wide range of sectors and problem areas. Integral demonstrations of the use of reliability and engineering mathematics are provided in many practical applications concerning major technological systems and structures.
