Reviews

@from:A.J. Valocchi @qu:The book assumes that the reader is already familiar with fundamental quantitative tools such as numerical solution of differential equations and mathematical programming techniques. The important contribution of the book is that it demonstrates the practical application of these quantitative tools to problems that are rarely treated in other books, such as desalination and water use in mining operations. @source:Journal of Contaminant Hydrology
