Progress in Geomathematics

Editors: Bonham-Carter, Graeme, Qiuming, Cheng (Eds.)

  • Reviews the development of mathematical applications in the geosciences over the last fifty years using Prof. Agterberg’s research as an anchor and reference point
  • Presents the state of the art including resource assessment, nonlinear modeling, geostatistics and time series analysis
  • Serves as both an account of 50 years of geomathematics and as a survey of current methodology with case studies

About this book

Celebrating Frits Agterberg’s half-century of publication activity in geomathematics, this volume’s 28 timely papers, written by his friends and colleagues, treat a variety of subjects of current interest, many of them also studied by Frits, including: spatial analysis in mineral resource assessment, quantitative stratigraphy, nonlinear multifractal models, compositional data analysis, time series analysis, image analysis, and geostatistics. Professor Agterberg published his first paper as a graduate student in 1958 and has since produced (and continues to publish) a steady stream of research papers on a wide variety of subjects of interest to geomathematical practitioners. Most of the papers included here address methodology and feature practical case studies, so that the book likely has broad appeal to those interested in mathematical geosciences, both to academic researchers seeking a comprehensive overview and also to practitioners of geomathematical approaches in industry.

About the authors

Graeme Bonham-Carter, who retired from the Geological Survey of Canada, has published extensively on computer methods in the geosciences. His two textbooks "Computer Simulation in Geology" (Wiley, 1970, with John Harbaugh) and "Geographic Information Systems for Geoscientists: Modelling with GIS" (Pergamon, 1994) have been widely used and cited. He was Editor in Chief of Computers & Geosciences for 11 years.

Qiuming Cheng is Professor at York University (Toronto) and Director of State Key Laboratory of Geological Processes and Mineral Resources at China University of Geosciences in Wuhan. He has published extensively on spatial analysis, GIS, fractal and multifractal models, spatial decision support
