"The common view of chemical and biological weapons is that they are a poor man's atomic bomb, that they are vile instruments of terror that civilized nations just do not use. This naive and narrow viewpoint ignores the fact that nations owning nuclear weapons have also developed chemical and biological weapons, not content with the nuclear weapons' more destructive capability.
This view disregards the fact that more countries are investing in chemical and biological weapons programs than in the past despite the alleged perceptions that the world finds these weapons "immoral." Countries invest in chemical and biological warfare for very rational(less)

The objective of this book is to teaching the insights and problem-solving skills that are most useful in solving mathematical problems arising in the course of modern research. Intended for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, the book assumes only a limited familiarity with differential equations and complex variables.
The presentation begins with a review of differential and difference equations; develops local asymptotic methods for differential and difference equations; explains perturbation and summation theory; and concludes with a an exposition of global asymptotic methods, including boundary-layer theory, WKB theory, and multiple-scale analysis(less)
