♦  Applied science. Engineering and mathematics / editor, Donald R. Franceschetti.
Ref. TA145 .A67 2013
This comprehensive volume examines the relationship between engineering and mathematics, providing insight into the many ways in which both disciplines affect daily life. The essays look beyond basic principles to examine a wide range of topics, inculding industrial and business applications, historical and social contexts, and the impact a particular field of engineering or mathematics will have on future jobs and careers.
