Publisher Comments:

This classic text on integral equations by the late Professor F. G. Tricomi, of the Mathematics Faculty of the University of Turin, Italy, presents an authoritative, well-written treatment of the subject at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. To render the book accessible to as wide an audience as possible, the author has kept the mathematical knowledge required on the part of the reader to a minimum; a solid foundation in differential and integral calculus, together with some knowledge of the theory of functions is sufficient.

The book is divided into four chapters, with two useful appendices, an excellent bibliography, and an index. A section of exercises enables the student to check his progress.

Contents include Volterra Equations, Fredholm Equations, Symmetric Kernels and Orthogonal Systems of Functions, Types of Singular or Nonlinear Integral Equations, and more.

Professor Tricomi has presented the principal results of the theory with sufficient generality and mathematical rigor to facilitate theoretical applications. On the other hand, the treatment is not so abstract as to be inaccessible to physicists and engineers who need integral equations as a basic mathematical tool. In fact, most of the material in this book falls into an analytical framework whose content and methods are already traditional.

Synopsis:

Authoritative, well-written treatment of extremely useful mathematical tool with wide applications. Topics include Volterra Equations, Fredholm Equations, Symmetric Kernels and Orthogonal Systems of Functions, more. Advanced undergraduate to graduate level. Exercises. Bibliography.
