This book deals with the concept of moments, and how they find application in subsurface hydrologic problems-particularly those dealing with solute transport. Both temporal and spatial moments are dealt with in some detail for a wide variety of problems. Several examples using experimental data, both from laboratory columns and field experiments, are provided to give the readers a clear idea about the scope of this method.challenge to the traditional Monte Carlo approach in characterizing probability density function (pdf). ... INTERVAL ARITHMETIC OPERATIONS Moore (1966) defined an interval number to be an ordered pair of real numbers, a b ... Young ( 1931) introduced the four basic arithmetic operations between interval numbers as follows: a b+cd = a+c b+d (10.2.1) ... For example, 121 2 a 1 2 = 12a1 1= a2 2 1 21 2 a 1 21 2 = 14 a 14 = a3 3 These two expressions yield totally differently answers.
