Описание: Asymptotic analysis, that branch of mathematics devoted to the study of the behavior of functions within chosen limits, was once thought of more as a specialized art than a necessary discipline. Now, a solid foundation in the theory and technique of asymptotic expansion of integrals is at the heart of the education of every student concentrating in applied mathematics. It is also an invaluable asset to scientists in many other fields.This excellent introductory text, written by two experts in the field, offers students of applied mathematics and researchers and workersin other fields a coherent and systematic presentation of the principles and methods of asymptotic expansions of integrals. Students will find each of the nine chapters useful and easy to comprehend; each begins with elementary material or informal introductions and concludes with an abundant selection of applicable problems and exercises. All that is needed is a basic understanding of calculus, differential equations, and complex variables.Practiced users of asymptotics will find the work a valuable reference with an extensive index locating all the functions covered in the text and every formula associated with the major techniques. Subjects include integration by parts, Watson's lemma, Laplace's method, stationary phase, and steepest descents. Also treated are the Mellin transform method and less elementary aspects of steepest descent. Each chapter is carefully illustrated with helpful diagrams and tables.Used for years as a text in classrooms throughout the country, the book has been revised and corrected for this inexpensive paperback edition. Any student or teacher looking for a suitable text for a year's or semester's course in asymptotics will value this affordable volume as the only comprehensive introduction available; scientists and researchers will undoubtedly refer to it again and again."

Описание: This text offers a systematic presentation of the path integral approach to calculating transition elements, partition functions, and source functionals. The treatment contains a set of logical connections and applications which represent the scope of problems that the path integral can solve. Readers receive sufficient background to advance to related books and articles at the frontiers of theoretical physics. An introductory section covers mathematical preliminaries, progressing to examinations of quantum mechanical path integrals, an evaluation of the path integral, and an exploration of further applications. Subsequent chapters cover Grassmann variables, field theory and gauge field theory, perturbation theory, and nonperturbative results. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics, the text requires only some familiarity with quantum mechanics. Exercises and lists of references throughout the book make it ideal for supplementary reading and self-study.
Описание: Classic three-volume study. Volume 1 covers applications to geometry, expansion in series, definite integrals, and derivatives and differentials. Volume 2 explores functions of a complex variable and differential equations. Volume 3 surveys variations of solutions and partial differential equations of the second order and integral equations and calculus of variations.
Описание: This compact guide emphasizes the relationship between physics and mathematics, introducing Fourier series in the way that Fourier himself used them: as solutions of the heat equation in a disk. 1966 edition.
