Item description for Linear Mathematical Models In Chemical Engineering by Martin a. Hjortso, Peter Wolenski & Martin A. Hjorts...
Understanding the mathematical modeling of chemical processes is fundamental to the successful career of a researcher in chemical engineering. This book reviews, introduces, and develops the mathematics that is most frequently encountered in sophisticated chemical engineering models. The result of a collaboration between a chemical engineer and a mathematician, both of whom have taught classes on modeling and applied mathematics, the book provides a rigorous and in-depth coverage of chemical engineering model formulation and analysis as well as a text which can serve as an excellent introduction to linear mathematics for engineering students. There is a clear focus in the choice of material, worked examples, and exercises that make it unusually accessible to the target audience. The book places a heavy emphasis on applications to motivate the theory, but simultaneously maintains a high standard of rigor to add mathematical depth and understanding.

More About Martin a. Hjortso, Peter Wolenski & Martin A. Hjorts
Martin A. Hjortso, Ph.D, is Chevron Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. He received his master's degree in chemical engineering from the Technical University of Denmark in 1978 working in the area of computational fluid mechanics. His Ph.D. dissertation project, carried out at the Chemical Engineering department at the University of Houston and Caltech, was on the application of population balance models to the budding yeast cell cycle. He received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Houston in 1983 and has been a member of the Chemical Engineering faculty at Louisiana State University since then.
Since joining the faculty at LSU, he has maintained an interest and an active research program in population balances, applying these models to problems in cell adhesion, hairy root growth kinetics, and autonomously oscillating yeast cultures. The work, published in the scientific literature and presented at international meetings, earned him the 1995 Dean's Research Award.
In addition to teaching the usual chemical engineering classes at LSU, Dr. Hjortso has taught classes on population balance modeling both at LSU and, as Otto Monsted Visiting Researcher, at the Center for Process Biotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark.
