More Description
A rigorous mathematical problemsolving framework for analyzing the Earth's energy resources
GeoEnergy encompasses the range of energy technologies and sources that interact with the geological subsurface. Fossil fuel availability studies have historically lacked concise modeling, tending instead toward heuristics and overlycomplex processes. Mathematical GeoEnergy: Oil Discovery, Depletion and Renewal details leadingedge research based on a mathematicallyoriented approach to geoenergy analysis.
Volume highlights include:
 Applies a formal mathematical framework to oil discovery, depletion, and analysis
 Employs firstorder applied physics modeling, decreasing computational resource requirements
 Illustrates model interpolation and extrapolation to fill out missing or indeterminate data
 Covers both stochastic and deterministic mathematical processes for historical analysis and prediction
 Emphasizes the importance of uptodate data, accessed through the companion website
 Demonstrates the advantages of mathematical modeling over conventional heuristic and empirical approaches
 Accurately analyzes the past and predicts the future of geoenergy depletion and renewal using models derived from observed production data
Intuitive mathematical models and readily available algorithms make Mathematical GeoEnergy: Oil Discovery, Depletion and Renewal an insightful and invaluable resource for scientists and engineers using robust statistical and analytical tools applicable to oil discovery, reservoir sizing, dispersion, production models, reserve growth, and more.
