Equations of Mathematical Physics (Dover Books on Physics & Chemistry)by A. N. Tikhonov
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:Mathematical physics plays an important role in the study of many physical processes — hydrodynamics, elasticity, and electrodynamics, to name just a few. Because of the enormous range and variety of problems dealt with by mathematical physics, this thorough advancedundergraduate or graduatelevel text considers only those problems leading to partial differential equations. The authors — two wellknown Russian mathematicians — have focused on typical physical processes and the principal types of equations deailing with them. Special attention is paid throughout to mathematical formulation, rigorous solutions, and physical interpretation of the results obtained. Carefully chosen problems designed to promote technical skills are contained in each chapter, along with extremely useful appendices that supply applications of solution methods described in the main text. At the end of the book, a helpful supplement discusses special functions, including spherical and cylindrical functions. Book News Annotation:A reprint of the Pergamon Press translation (1963) of the original Russian. The first English edition was in the series International series of monographs on pure and applied mathematics; v.39.
