Applied Mathematics in Hydraulic Engineering is an excellent teaching guide and reference to treating nonlinear mathematical problems in hydraulic, hydrologic and coastal engineering. Undergraduates studying civil and coastal engineering, as well as analysis and differential equations, are started off applying calculus to the treatment of nonlinear partial differential equations, before given the chance to practice real-life problems related to the fields. This textbook is not only a good source of teaching materials for teachers or instructors, but is also useful as a comprehensive resource of mathematical tools to researchers.
