For readers with some competence in PDE solution properties, this book offers an interdisciplinary approach to problems occurring in natural environmental media: the hydrosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, biosphere and ionosphere. It presents two major discretization methods: Finite Difference and Finite Element, plus a section on practical approaches to ill-posed problems. The blend of theory, analysis, and implementation practicality supports solving and understanding complicated problems.We also assume that (s)he has gained some intuitive knowledge of their solution properties, either in the context of specific applications, or in the ... The applications we envision span classical mathematical physics and the a engineering sciencesa: fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, ... Some working exposure to applications of PDEa#39;s in their research or practice has also been a common denominator.
