Peturbation Techniques in Mathematics, Engineering & Physics (Dover Books on Physics)by Richard Ernest Bellman
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This threepart graduatelevel treatment begins with classical perturbation techniques, discussing the Lagrange expansion theorem, matrix exponential, invariant imbedding, and dynamic programming. The second part concentrates on equations, presenting renormalization techniques of Lindstedt and Shohat and averaging techniques by Bellman and Richardson. The concluding chapter focuses on secondorder linear differential equations, illustrating applications of the WKBLiouville method and asymptotic series. Exercises, comments, and an annotated bibliography follow each demonstration of technique. A course in intermediate calculus and a basic understanding of ordinary differential equations are prerequisites. 1966 ed. 7 figures. Book News Annotation:This textbook describes perturbation techniques for approximating solutions of physical processes, specifically obtaining periodic solutions of second order nonlinear differential equations. This Dover edition, first published in 1972, is an unabridged republication of the work published by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston in 1966.
