Описание: An introduction to both classical scattering theory and to the time-dependent theory of linear equations in mathematical physics, this text is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics and applied mathematics. Topics include proof of the existence of wave operators, some special equations of mathematical physics -- including Maxwell equations, the linear equations of elasticity and thermoelasticity, and the plate equation -- exterior boundary value problems, radiation conditions, and limiting absorption principles. The self-contained treatment provides background for a complete understanding of all concepts, and an extensive reference list offers suggestions for further reading. Based on the author's lectures at the University of Bonn in 1983-84, this volume will prove useful to researchers as well as students.

Описание: This high-level treatment by a noted mathematician considers one-dimensional singular integral equations involving Cauchy principal values. Intended for graduate students and professionals, its coverage includes such topics as the Holder condition, Hilbert and Riemann-Hilbert problems, the Dirichlet problem, inversion formulas for arcs, and many other areas. 1992 edition.

Описание: One of the most useful and practical expositions of Fourier's series, and spherical, cylindrical, and ellipsoidal harmonics, this classic offers a basic but thorough treatment of material that is assumed in many other studies but rarely available in concise form. Includes 190 problems, approximately half with answers. 1893 edition.

Описание: Based on practical work with mathematical physics done in the Physics Department of Moscow State University, this outstanding text by three of the Faculty's distinguished members focuses on a wide range of problems. Chapters are divided according to the method of solution -- thereby giving students the opportunity, through independent work, to gain elementary problem-solving skills where mathematical physics equations are concerned. In addition, there is a supplement devoted to the special coordinate systems of mathematical physics, together with a section devoted to special functions. Designed not only for students but for engineers and research workers, this volume includes an exceptionally useful selection of problems, a number of which are accompanied by detailed instructions and solutions.

Описание: Intended for college-level physics, engineering, or mathematics students, this volume offers an algebraically based approach to various topics in applied math. It is accessible to undergraduates with a good course in calculus which includes infinite series and uniform convergence. Exercises follow each chapter to test the student's grasp of the material; however, the author has also included exercises that extend the results to new situations and lay the groundwork for new concepts to be introduced later. A list of references for further reading will be found at the end of each chapter. For this second revised edition, Professor Dettman included a new section on generalized functions to help explain the use of the Dirac delta function in connection with Green's functions. In addition, a new approach to series solutions of ordinary differential equations has made the treatment independent of complex variable theory. This means that the first six chapters can be grasped without prior knowledge of complex variables. However, since Chapter 8 depends heavily on analytic functions of a complex variable, a new Chapter 7 on analytic function theory has been written.

Virtually unobtainable for many years, these two books by Lewis Carroll (C. L. Dodgson) have now been reprinted in their entirety for the pleasure of modern enthusiasts of mathematical puzzles. Written by the 19th-century mathematician who gave us Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, they contain an unusual combination of wit and mathematical intricacy that will test your mathematical ingenuity and provide hours of stimulating entertainment. Pillow-Problems is one of the rarest of all Lewis Carroll's works. It contains 72 mathematical posers ranging from those that can be solved by arithmetic, simple algebra, or plane geometry, to those that require more advanced algebra, trigonometry, algebraical geometry, differential calculus, and transcendental probabilities. Both numerical answers and fully worked out solutions are given, each in a separate section so that you can test your methods of problem-solving even after you have looked up the answer to a problem. In A Tangled Tale, Carroll embodies some of his most perplexing mathematical puzzles in the ten knots or chapters of a delightful story that has all the charm and wit of his better-known works. The Tale was originally printed as a monthly magazine serial, and many readers sent in solutions to the problems that were posed in it. In the long Appendix to The Tale, which contains the answers and solutions to the problems, Carroll uses the answers sent in by readers as the basis for illuminating and entertaining discussions of the many wrong ways in which the problems can be attacked, as well as the right ways.

Описание:

Amusing and informative in its approach to solving mathematical bafflers, this treasury of theories, games, puzzles and oddities of all kinds, compiled by one of the world's best card players (Jacoby) and an expert in mathematical recreations (Benson) will delight and fascinate math enthusiasts. Although primarily intended to entertain, the wide variety of puzzles ranging from facile curiosities to very difficult intellectual exercises will challenge you to keep your mind going full steam. Each of the book's five sections "Fun with Numbers," "Fun with Letters," "The Odds: Explorations in Probability," "Where Inference and Reasoning Reign" and "The Answers Are Whole Numbers" is made up of approximately 30 problems, with solutions grouped at the end of each section. Math buffs will love testing their puzzle-solving skills on such challenging brainteasers as The Enterprising Snail, Mrs. Crabbe and the Bacon, The Fly and the Bicycles, The Lovesick Cockroaches, The Three Prisoners, Girls Should Live in Brooklyn, Who Was Executed?, Creaker vs. Roadhog, The Crossed Ladders, The Ancient Order of the Greens, and many more. Few of these problems require any advanced mathematical knowledge or prowess. You'll find that simply keeping your wits about you and your logical skills honed are all you need to enjoy a delightful and thought-provoking adventure in recreational mathematics. Foreword. 10 illustrations. 14 tables.

Описание:

If you've ever tried to solve mathematical problems without any idea how to go about it, this book is for you. It will improve your ability to solve all kinds of mathematical problems whether in mathematics, science, engineering, business, or purely recreational mathematical problems (puzzles, games, etc.). In the pages of this book you'll discover seven indispensable problem-solving techniques: inference, classification of action sequences, state evaluation and hill climbing, subgoals, contradiction, working backward and relations between problems. Based on modern advances in the fields of artificial intelligence and computer simulation of thought, the techniques are taught here by an effective problem-solving methodology. Dr. Wickelgren, formerly a Professor of Psychology at MIT and the University of Oregon, first defines a problem-solving method, then illustrates its application to simple recreational mathematics problems that require no more background than a year of high school algebra and a year of plane geometry. By devoting the majority of the book to such "puzzle" problems, which require less background and information than more advanced mathematics and science problems, the author reaches the widest possible audience. In the final chapter, however, Dr. Wickelgren deals with specific problems from mathematics, science, and engineering. Throughout the book, sample problems illustrate each method and the author has supplied hints and complete solutions. Carefully and clearly written, this indispensable guide will help students in every discipline avoid countless hours of frustration and wasted effort. It is an ideal book for early undergraduate courses in mathematics, physical science, engineering, computer science, economics and other fields that require problem solving. Preface. Introduction. References.Index. 73 line illustrations.
