Green's Functions and Boundary Value Problems (2ND 98 - Old Edition)by Ivar Stakgold
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This revised and updated Second Edition of Green's Functions and Boundary Value Problems maintains a careful balance between sound mathematics and meaningful applications. Central to the text is a down-to-earth approach that shows the reader how to use differential and integral equations when tackling significant problems in the physical sciences, engineering, and applied mathematics.
Ivar Stakgold incorporates developments that have altered the field of applied mathematics in recent decades—particularly in areas of modeling, Fourier analysis, fixed-point theorems, inverse problems, asymptotics, and nonlinear methods. This modernized text, however, retains the many features that made its predecessor one of the most successful graduate-level texts of its kind, including:
Green's Functions and Boundary Value Problems is an ideal text for a modern course in applied mathematics designed for students in the physical sciences, engineering, and mathematics. It is also an excellent reference for practicing professionals in these areas.
