Math Refresher for Scientists and Engineers by John R. Fanchi

Book Description

Expanded coverage of essential math, including integral equations, calculus of variations, tensor analysis, and special integrals Math Refresher for Scientists and Engineers, Third Edition is specifically designed as a self-study guide to help busy professionals and students in science and engineering quickly refresh and improve the math skills needed to perform their jobs and advance their careers. The book focuses on practical applications and exercises that readers are likely to face in their professional environments. All the basic math skills needed to manage contemporary technology problems are addressed and presented in a clear, lucid style that readers familiar with previous editions have come to appreciate and value. The book begins with basic concepts in college algebra and trigonometry, and then moves on to explore more advanced concepts in calculus, linear algebra (including matrices), differential equations, probability, and statistics. This Third Edition has been greatly expanded to reflect the needs of today's professionals. New material includes: A chapter on integral equations A chapter on calculus of variations A chapter on tensor analysis A section on time series A section on partial fractions Many new exercises and solutions Collectively, the chapters teach most of the basic math skills needed by scientists and engineers. The wide range of topics covered in one title is unique. All chapters provide a review of important principles and methods. Examples, exercises, and applications are used liberally throughout to engage the readers and assist them in applying their new math skills to actual problems. Solutions to exercises are provided in an appendix. Whether to brush up on professional skills or prepare for exams, readers will find this self-study guide enables them to quickly master the math they need. It can additionally be used as a textbook for advanced-level undergraduates in physics and engineering.

Integrated Reservoir Asset Management by John R. Fanchi Integrated Reservoir Asset Management, Hardback (July 2010)

Introduces the reader to the processes and modeling paradigms needed to develop the skills to increase reservoir output and profitability and decrease guesswork. This book offers an overview of reservoir management, fluids, geological principles used to characterization, and two key reservoir parameters (porosity and permeability).

Principles of Applied Reservoir Simulation by John R. Fanchi Principles of Applied Reservoir Simulation, Hardback (December 2005)

Contains sections on coalbed methane, CO2 sequestration, Co2 Flood, sophisticated petrophysical models for geoscientists, examples of subsidence, and additional geomechanical calculations. This book provides petrophysical models, examples of subsidence and additional geomechanical calculations.

Energy by John R. Fanchi Energy, Hardback (February 2004)

Presenting the fundamentals of energy for scientists and engineers, this book is a survey of energy sources. It helps the reader learn about the history and science of several energy sources as well as the technology and social significance of energy.

Shared Earth Modeling by John R. Fanchi Shared Earth Modeling, Hardback (August 2002)

Introduces the reader to the processes and concepts needed to develop shared earth models. This work gives a picture of what the reservoir actually looks like, and thus can drastically cut the costs of drilling and time spent mapping the reservoir.
