Written for students and researchers, this book provides comprehensive coverage of numerical geodynamic modelling. The book provides a solid grounding in basic mathematical theory and techniques, including continuum mechanics and partial differential equations, before introducing key numerical and modelling methods. Topics include the continuity equation, density and gravity, viscous rheology of rocks, and numerical solutions of the momentum and continuity equations.
MATLAB is introduced and used to solve numerous examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
