Professor Alison Tomlin to Publish Book as Co-author on "Analysis of Kinetic Reaction Mechanisms"

Professor Alison Tomlin of the Energy Research Institute (ERI) is about to publish her first book with co-author Professor Tamás Turányi from Eötvos University in Budapest, Hungary. The book entitled "Analysis of Kinetic Reaction Mechanisms" describes methods for the analysis of reaction mechanisms that are applicable to the fields of combustion, atmospheric chemistry, environmental modelling, process engineering, and systems biology. Topics addressed include: how sensitivity and uncertainty analyses allow the calculation of the overall uncertainty of simulation results and the identification of the most important input parameters, the ways in which mechanisms can be reduced without losing important kinetic and dynamic detail, and the application of reduced models for more accurate engineering optimisations. This monograph will be invaluable for researchers and engineers dealing with detailed reaction mechanisms, but could also be useful for graduate students of related courses in chemistry, mechanical engineering, energy and environmental science and biology.

Since Christmas is approaching you may be looking for suitable gifts for family and friends within an interest in modelling chemical systems. You can pre-order the book from Amazon.
