 This volume contains research papers written and edited by prominent researchers working with the mathematical and numerical treatment of fluid flow and transport in porous media. Papers are based on talks given at a 2001 Joint AMSIMSSIAM Summer Research Conference held at Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, MA). Topics cover a variety of subjects such as network flow modeling, contemporary numerical methods, parallel computation, optimization, multiscale phenomena, upscaling, uncertainty reduction, well treatment, and media characterization. The material addresses many problems originating from the applied geosciences and focuses on their common stateoftheart mathematical and numerical treatment. This work is particularly pertinent to those working in oil exploration and other industrial applications. The book serves as an excellent reference work for all geoscientists, mathematicians, physicists, and engineers working in this research area. Readership Graduate students, research mathematicians, geoscientists, physicists, and engineers working with the mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of fluid flow and transport in porous media.
