  • Fills the gap of a basic reference work in the area
  • Consolidates current knowledge on geomathematics by providing succinct summaries of concepts and theories, definitions of terms, biographical entries, organizational profiles, a guide to sources of information, and an overview of the landscapes and contours of geomathematics
  • Contributions are written for a general readership, typically from areas outside the particular research field

During the last three decades geosciences and geo-engineering were influenced by two essential scenarios: First, the technological progress has changed completely the observational and measurement techniques. Modern high speed computers and satellite based techniques are entering more and more all geodisciplines. Second, there is a growing public concern about the future of our planet, its climate, its environment, and about an expected shortage of natural resources. Mathematics concerned with geoscientific problems, i.e., Geomathematics, is becoming increasingly important.

The ‘Handbook of Geomathematics’ as a central reference work in this area comprises the following scientific fields: (I) observational and measurement key technologies; (II) modelling of the system Earth (geosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere); (III) analytic, algebraic, and operator-theoretic methods; (IV) statistical and stochastic methods; (V) computational and numerical analysis methods; (VI) historical background and future perspectives.
