In recent years, mathematical techniques applied to novel disciplines within the science and engineering have experienced extraordinary growth. Advanced Mathematical Techniques in Science and Engineering focusses on a detailed range of mathematics applied within various fields of science and engineering for different tasks. Topics of focus include:

  • Analysis of Consensus-Building Time in Social Groups
  • Modeling of intersystem accidents in critical infrastructure systems
  • Stochastic approaches to analysis and modeling of multi-sources and big data
  • Performance evaluation of computational DoS attack on access point in Wireless LANs
  • Ranking methods for decision-making under uncertainty
  • Understanding time delay based Modeling & Diffusion of technological products
  • Role of soft computing in science and engineering
  • Complex system reliability analysis and optimization
  • Tree growth models in forest ecosystems modelling

This research book can be used as a reference for students in a final year undergraduate engineering course, such as mechanical, mechatronics, industrial, computer science, information technology, etc. Furthermore, the book can serve as a valuable reference for academics, engineers and researchers in these and related subject areas.
