Book Series Editors: Jochen Bundschuh (University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, Germany & Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm , Sweden) and Mario Cesar Suarez Arriaga (Private Consultant, Morelia, Mexico).
The book series addresses novel mathematical and numerical techniques with an interdisciplinary focus that cuts across all fields of science, engineering and technology. A
unique collection of worked problems provide understanding of complicated coupled
phenomena and processes, its forecasting and approaches to problem-solving for a
diverse group of applications in physical, chemical, biological, geoscientific, medical
and other fields. The series responds to the explosively growing interest in numerical
modeling of coupled processes in general and its expansion to ever more sophisticated
physics. Examples of topics in this series include natural resources exploration and
exploitation (e.g. water resources and geothermal and petroleum reservoirs), natural
disaster risk reduction (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis), evaluation and
mitigation of human-induced phenomena as climate change, and optimization of
engineering systems (e.g. construction design, manufacturing processes).
