\esc is a \pyt based environment that has been developed to solve complex mathematical models, particularly coupled, nonlinear and timedependent partial differential equations. The intention of this cookbook, is to give new \esc users a comprehensive introduction, and to create a fundamental knowledge base and example set, that can be used as templates or references for new problems. While most of the examples in this cookbook are focused on the disciplines of geophysics and geology they all provide a solid introduction to \esc and it's capabilities. 

area of geophysics and geology but the introduction provides solid examples for users of all areas.
