Basic Mathematics for Students of Air Pollutants
Air pollution is recognised as a major threat to global public health. The study of air pollution requires an understanding of various mathematical concepts that some students may not have encountered. For students struggling with the necessary maths this book provides a brilliant basic resource to get them up to speed.
The two authors use their long experience in the air pollution field to provide a selection of the basic mathematical techniques required for the study of air pollution. These include introductions to statistical distributions, regression analysis, the elementary physics of airborne particles and gases and epidemiological techniques. Aimed at students of air pollution with a limited background in mathematics, this book is a useful addition to any air pollution course.
