Environmental modeling is a science that uses mathematics and comput- ers to simulate physical and chemical phenomena in the environment e. This science was initially based on pen-and-paper calculations using simple equations.
These packages have been particularly successful for users of personal computers. Mathematical software provides a set of tools for solving equations both analytically and numerically.
This is a major improvement in comparison to the programming tools e. The use of these tools also minimizes the risk of programming errors. The book will be particularly useful to those scientists who have postponed the learning and using mathematical software. This book will open a new world to them! To the target group belong all natural scientists who are dealing with the environment: engineers from process and chemical engineering, physicists, chemists, biologists, biochemists, hydrogeologists, geochemists, ecologists.
As the book is concerned with modeling, it inevitably demands some math- ematical insight. The book is designed to 1. Other mathematical products could have been selected from the market, which would perform similarly well for most application problems presented in the various chapters.
There are twenty chapters in the book. Flow, if present, is an important, but mostly also complex part within an environmen- tal compartment. At the very end special topics appear: image processing and geo-referencing, graphs, linear systems, the phase space and graphical user interfaces. Berlin, December Acknowledgements A book on such a wide topic as this one includes experiences and knowledge shared with lots of other people. I ask for understanding that I mention no names here.
To be fair, giving one name would make it necessary to add nu- merous others. As one and only exception I want to mention my wife Susanne for reading the entire book, correcting stylistic errors, providing improved formulations and for mental support. Special thanks to the students who attended the modeling courses at FUB, for their questions and for their ideas.
Without them I would not have become so familiar with the software. Parts of the book are based on seminar scripts.
