Abstract

Mathematical geoscience is an extremely broad and challenging application of mathematical modeling, surveyed in a new monograph by Andrew Fowler of Oxford and Limerick. Writing a review of the book's 900 pages is clearly a Herculean task, ably taken on in our featured review by Neil Balmforth of the University of British Columbia.
The other reviews in this issue also span a wide spectrum of applied mathematics, including politics, qualitative risk assessment, Fourier series, turbulence and shell models, mathematical inequalities, differential equations, special functions, the aerofoil, porous media, inequalities in probability, probability measures, differential games, and the mathematics of learning. We leave it up to our readers to assimilate and coordinate all of this new material, and we thank our reviewers for their expert opinions and evaluations.
