“This book is recommended for beginners as well as for experts in computer applications for simulation of dynamic complex systems and problems of chemical physics: from chemical reactors to space rocket motors. The range of issues that constitute the contents of all eight chapters of this book could be compared with a bouquet in which each flower complements and underlines the importance of the other one. For me personally, the questions of simplification of mathematical models of the complex systems, similarity of the systems, accuracy and verification of models of full-scale complex systems attract special attention in connection with a recent paper of Prof. A. G. Merzhanov and mine on validity of experimental and theoretical modeling (in “Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves,” 2013, Vol. 49). This book also provides a unique opportunity to be acquainted with numerous publications in the field of computer simulation of physicochemical processes performed in former USSR and in Russia.”

The use of mathematical modeling in engineering allows for a significant reduction of material costs associated with design, production, and operation of technical objects, but it is important for an engineer to use the available computational approaches in modeling correctly. Taking into account the level of modern computer technology, this new volume explains how an engineer should properly define the physical and mathematical problem statement, choose the computational approach, and solve the problem by a proven reliable computational approach using computer and software applications during the solution of a particular problem.

Comments from Our Editors and Authors
“I was recently thrilled to flip the pages of my new book, Polymeric Thermosetting Polymers.This book shares a lifetime of lessons from my pioneering efforts in compound custom formulating. That is why I am so very grateful to AAP for making it possible to get this unique book into worldwide circulation. The expert team at AAP made the experience of writing, organizing, and polishing the book quite enjoyable. Their copy editor did a marvelous job of not only correcting errors but making the appearance much nicer and giving the content additional structure. Their artists took my photos and designed an attractive book cover. My editor was supportive, instructive, and a friend to me throughout the entire process. I feel so at home with this publisher and confident of their capabilities to do a professional job, that I recently signed a contact with them for my next book.” —Ralph D. Hermansen, Formerly Senior Scientist, Hughes Aircraft Company, El Segundo, California
