Modeling complex biological, chemical, and physical systems, in the context of spatially heterogeneous mediums, is a challenging task for scientists and engineers using traditional methods of analysis.
Modeling in Applied Sciences is a comprehensive survey of modeling large systems using kinetic equations, and in particular the Boltzmann equation and its generalizations. An interdisciplinary group of leading authorities carefully develop the foundations of kinetic models and discuss the connections and interactions between model theories, qualitative and computational analysis and real-world applications. This book provides a thoroughly accessible and lucid overview of the different aspects, models, computations, and methodology for the kinetic-theory modeling process.
Topics and Features:
* Integrated modeling perspective utilized in all chapters
* Fluid dynamics of reacting gases
* Self-contained introduction to kinetic models
* Becker Doring equations
* Nonlinear kinetic models with chemical reactions
* Kinetic traffic-flow models
* Models of granular media
* Large communication networks
* Thorough discussion of numerical simulations of Boltzmann equation
This new book is an essential resource for all scientists and engineers who use large-scale computations for studying the dynamics of complex systems of fluids and particles. Professionals, researchers, and postgraduates will find the book a modern and authoritative guide to the topic.
"In addition to providing an extensive analysis of strategies for changing performance and the factors that can impact coaching effectiveness, this book offers what may be a unique value: instead of promoting one approach as the best, Dr. Lennard guides readers through a highly customized process of developing our own individualized coaching model. As a result of the book's thought-provoking activities, I strengthened my own sense of personal authenticity and saw new ways to coach and collaborate fully with employees who may have very different perspectives." a " Tita Theodora Beal, Learning & Development, Pfizer, Inc.
"This is a wise book. The essential take-away is simple and profound. Develop, refine, and apply your own (as in ownership) personalized coaching model. Much is provided; nothing is imposed. Readers are invited to reflect on unique and defining experiences, strengths, values, perspectives and style and to begin creating their own a work in progress.a (TM) Coaching Models will be a compelling read for experienced coaches and new coach practitioners alike." a " Bethene LeMahieu, Ed.D.; Professional Coach and Conversation Conservationist
Coaching Models: A Cultural Perspective encourages and assists students and practitioners of business coaching to develop and apply their own coaching models. The entire field of coaching will benefit from having coaches who use their models to continually improve their practice.
The first part of this book presents the model development process by looking at the relationship among culture, beliefs, and behavior in the coaching context. It explains the importance of identifying cultural factors that influence the way coaches approach coaching interactions, and their coaching models.
The second section provides coaches with information and strategies for developing personalized coaching models, applying them to specific contexts, and reflecting on their interactions to refine their core coaching practices.
The third part describes the evolution of the authora (TM)s own coaching modela "the Performance Coaching Modela "and illustrates how one coach incorporates unique perspectives and sets of skills, knowledge, and experience in her coaching practice.
Through a variety of diverse perspectives, the authors delve into critical issues related to lifelong learning and professional development and invite the reader to consider the roles and functions of continuing professional development, the problems and prospects associated with mandating it, and the continuing quest to translate effective learning into competent practice that is dedicated to the welfare of the consumer, on the one hand, and the generation of improved outcomes, at the other. Interested readers will range from current consumers to trenchant critics of the current health care system. Anyone interested in improving health care services and developing best practices will find ample food for thought in the pages of this book that can be applied to better evaluating and facilitating ongoing professional competence and health care outcomes.
This book explores how transportation models can play a role in a changing transport planning and policy making context. Most models are rooted in decades of development work and are geared to offer value-free, academic and explicit knowledge to transport planning experts. However, planning practice has changed dramatically over the years, resulting in a less technical rational view on the use of such knowledge - especially so in early, strategy making phases. More and more complex policy goals, integration of a wide area of other policy domains, a wider, ever-changing and much more mixed group of planning participants and much more focus on 'wicked problems'. The book maps how this influences the effectiveness of transport modelling exercises and explores several state-of-the-art implementations.
This book was published as a special issue of Transport Reviews.
