New edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to include more applications, examples, and exercises, all with solutions
Two new chapters on neural networks and simulation have also been added
Wide variety of topics covered with applications to many fields, including mechanical systems, chemical kinetics, economics, population dynamics, nonlinear optics, and materials science
Accessible to a broad, interdisciplinary audience of readers with a general mathematical background, including senior undergraduates, graduate students, and working scientists in various branches of applied mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering
A hands-on approach is used with Maple as a pedagogical tool throughout; Maple worksheet files are listed at the end of each chapter, and along with commands, programs, and output may be viewed in color at the author's website with additional applications and further links of interest at Maplesoft's Application Center
What’s New in the Third Edition:Prepares operators for licensure exams Provides additional math problems and solutions to better prepare users for certification exams Updates all chapters to reflect the developments in the field Enables users to properly operate water and wastewater plants and suggests troubleshooting procedures for returning a plant to optimum operation levels
A complete compilation of water science, treatment information, process control procedures, problem-solving techniques, safety and health information, and administrative and technological trends, this text serves as a resource for professionals working in water and wastewater operations and operators preparing for wastewater licensure exams. It can also be used as a supplemental textbook for undergraduate and graduate students studying environmental science, water science, and environmental engineering.
