Problem Analysis in Science and Engineering discusses several issues regarding the problems faced by disciplines that are reliant on mathematical equations and solutions. The book describes alternative ways to approach several problems faced by different fields. Chapters in this book are written by different authors who in turn discuss different subjects, such as the aspects of network theory and its applications in engineering and physics, economy, ecology, catastrophe theory, and the mathematical aspects of problem structure and analysis tools. Since this book tackles issues from a variety of disciplines, it will appeal to a wide audience from different fields.
