Dear colleagues:

Wed like to bring to your attention our recently published textbook:

Numerical Methods with Chemical Engineering Applications,
Cambridge University Press, 2017.

Below is an excerpt from the book preamble:

Designed primarily for undergraduates, but also graduates and practitioners,
this textbook integrates numerical methods and programming with applications
from chemical engineering. Combining mathematical rigor with an informal
writing style, it thoroughly introduces the theory underlying numerical
methods, its translation into MATLAB programs, and its use for solving
realistic problems. Specific topics covered include accuracy, convergence
and numerical stability, as well as stiffness and ill-conditioning. MATLAB
codes are developed from scratch, and their implementation is explained in
detail, all while assuming limited programming knowledge. All
scripts employed are downloadable, and built-in MATLAB functions are
discussed and contextualised. Numerous examples and homework problems  from
simple questions to extended case studies  accompany the text, allowing
students to develop a deep appreciation for the range of real chemical
engineering problems that can be solved using numerical methods. This is the
ideal resource for a single-semester course on numerical methods, as well as
other chemical engineering courses taught over multiple semesters.


Best regards,
Kevin Dorfman and Prodromos Daoutidis
