This book focuses on the management of ship operations, an activity that requires integrative knowledge and technical expertise that spans various disciplines. As such, ship operations personnel are expected to be well-versed with aspects of management, economics, engineering, technology and law. Further, ship operations management requires the ability to identify and neutralize threats and to manage risks and make decisions that will optimize costs and contribute to performance improvements. Despite the fundamental nature of ship operations management, no book has ever attempted to reconcile and compile a comprehensive body of knowledge, while pursuing a coherent, structured and systematic approach. This edited volume addresses that fundamental gap in the extant literature, and brings together a wealth of knowledge from experts in their respective fields. Concretely, it explores issues of organization, technical management, crewing and behavioral issues, chartering and post fixture, risk management, finance, legal aspects of international conventions and regulations, attainment of safety, security and marine insurance, as well as ocean governance and sustainability. As such, the book offers a vital reference guide for maritime companies and organizations, while also serving as a teaching supplement in academic and professional maritime programmes.
K. A. Stroud Advanced Engineering Mathematics With Dexter J. Booth
Advanced Engineering Mathematics with Dexter J. Booth A long-standing, best-selling, comprehensive textbook covering all the mathematics required on upper level engineering mathematics undergraduate courses. Its unique approach takes you through all the mathematics you need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples and exercises. The text demands that you engage with it by asking you to complete steps that you should be able to manage from previous examples or knowledge you have acquired, while carefully introducing new steps. By working with the authors through the examples, you become proficient as you go. By the time you come to trying examples on their own, confidence is high.Suitable for undergraduates in second and third year courses on engineering and science degrees. Review Students say: Quite simply absolutely excellent! All you could want in a maths textbook. Stroud does not & ldquo;assume & rdquo;, he teaches. From the Back Cover Advanced Engineering Mathematics offers: Everything you need to know to pass your exams A unique interactive approach which leads you through the mathematics in a highly accessible way Hundreds of worked examples and progressively more challenging exercises And is ideal either as part of a course or for self-study New to this edition: Improved presentation of various elements in Introduction to invariant linear systems, in Power series solutions of ordinary differential equations, and in Systems of ordinary differential equations Major addition of four new Programmes: Direction fields, Phase plane analysis, Non-linear systems and Dynamical systems. Full use of computer software to optimize objective functions in Optimization and linear programming For lecturers: PowerPoint slides to accompany each Programme on our companion website at www.macmillanihe.com/stroud K.A.
