Cameron University’s Dr. Ioannis Argyros and Dr. Narayan Thapa co-author new mathematics textbook

Cameron University’s Dr. Ioannis Argyros and Dr. Narayan Thapa, along with Dr. Santosh George, have co-authored “Mathematical Modeling of the Solution of Equations and Systems Equations with Applications,” a two-volume textbook dedicated to the approximation of solutions of nonlinear equations using iterative methods. Published by Nova Science Publishers, the book is a valuable tool for researchers, practitioners and graduate students, and can also be used as a textbook for seminars in all computational and related disciplines.

The two volumes contain new research by the authors that is related to computational methods for solving differential, integral and other equations including systems of nonlinear equations. The books are designed to assist researchers, practitioners and students to efficiently utilize numerical methods for approximating solutions of equations resulting from the study of real life problems arising in biosciences, engineering, mathematical programming, convex optimization, mathematical physics, mathematical economics,mathematical chemistry and other disciplines.

The authors were assisted in their research by recent Cameron graduate Nirjal Shrestha, Kathmandu, Nepal, who conducted his undergraduate research on the topic. Shrestha graduated magna cum laude in May 2018 with dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science.

A professor of mathematics, Argyros joined the CU faculty in 1990. He has published 26 books and more than 1,000 peer-reviewed articles on the topic of computational mathematics in additional to contributing chapters to 17 books by others. Argyros is the recipient of the 2001 Distinguished Research Award from the Southwest Oklahoma Advanced Technology Association.

Thapa joined the CU faculty in 2015 as Chair, Department of Mathematical Sciences, and Associate Professor of Mathematics. His research interests include Mathematical Modeling and Parameter Estimation, as well as Nonlinear Functional Analysis, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Optimization, Inverse Problems and Nonlinear Dynamical Systems.

Argyros and Thapa collaborated with Dr. Santosh George, a professor in the Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the National Institute of Technology Karnataka in Mangalore, India.
