Abstract : The monograph presents new numerical methods of forecasting weather several days in advance. These methods are based on a complete system of equations of hydro- and thermodynamics, taking atmospheric moisture transfer and radiational effects into account. The mathematical model uses a method of separating the compound operators of the problem to yield simpler ones. A description is given of effective algorithms for the numerical solution of a system of equations for weather forecasting, and their theoretical basis is described. The majority of the results presented in the monograph are being published for the first time. (Author)
