Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 191)


In this chapter we touch on several application areas in which time scale separation arises naturally. As you can guess from the rather diverse set of section headings, it is quite reasonable to conjecture that most quantitative sciences that employ mathematical modeling may eventually encounter various multiscale problems. Each section centers on one or two key examples in which one can clearly identify the time scale separation parameter as well as apply many of the methods discussed in this book.
