Design Analysis: Mathematical Modeling of Nonlinear Systems

18 September 2019 | By David E. Thompson | Filed in: applied-mathematics.

An integral part of engineering design is the development of models that describe physical behavior or phenomena in mathematical terms As engineering systems have become complex, classic linear methods of modeling and analysis have proved inadequate, creating a need for nonlinear models to sol
