Professor Mak’s book leads us through the essential mathematics, with an engaging narrative style and graphical solutions which bring the theory to life. The book provides a comprehensive survey of the mathematical models, and offers some pragmatic ways of obtaining solutions. The methods build from elementary kinematic models which can be understood with undergraduate mathematical methods, to sophisticated analysis of three-dimensional semigeostrophic systems which will interest and challenge graduate students and researchers alike.
Atmospheric Frontal Dynamics – Mankin Mak – Google Books
With its elegant mathematics and application to real world weather systems, the material will be a fine intellectual stimulus for students [studying mathematics, fluid dynamics or meteorology].
Parker, University of Leeds ‘Professor Mak has adroitly consolidated into one volume, for the first time, what we know about the dynamics of surface and upper-level fronts in the atmosphere from the perspective of a hierarchy of models.
This book contains a wealth of material that will serve as an excellent resource for graduate courses in meteorology as well as for researchers. You may have already requested this item. Please select Ok if you would like to proceed with this request anyway.
