"It is one of the best introductory texts in mathematical modeling which the reviewer warmly recommends to anyone who wishes to learn the foundations of mathematical modeling with enjoyment." -Yuri V. Rogovchenko, in ZENTRALBLATT FUR MATHEMATIK, 2005 "Principles of Mathematical Modeling is a delightfully readable, well-written account of the way engineers look at the world. It covers a surprizingly wide range of topics...The many examples treated in the text are drawn from the practical world that engineers inhabit, with some surprises thrown in for good measure..." - Robert Borelli, Harvey Mudd College "The book itself is marvelously interdisciplinary, treating biological and human designed systems in addition to physical systems. These examples show that engineers can do more than simply analyze simple physical systems with known, exact solutions." - Bill Wood, University of Maryland at Baltimore
