# Mathematical Modeling and Simulation: Introduction for Scientists and Engineers

Based on the author's modeling and simulation experience in science and engineering and as a consultant, the book answers such basic questions as: What is a mathematical model? What types of models do exist? Which model is appropriate for a particular problem? What are simulation, parameter estimation, and validation?

The book relies exclusively upon open-source software which is available to everybody free of charge. The entire book software—including 3D CFD and structural mechanics simulation software—can be used based on a free CAELinux-Live-DVD that is available in the Internet (works on most machines and operating systems).
