Mixed Boundary Value Problems (Chapman & Hall/CRC Applied Mathematics and Nonlinear Science)by Dean G. Duffy
Synopses & Reviews
Methods for Solving Mixed Boundary Value Problems
An up-to-date treatment of the subject, Mixed Boundary Value Problems focuses on boundary value problems when the boundary condition changes along a particular boundary. The book often employs numerical methods to solve mixed boundary value problems and the associated integral equations.
Straightforward Presentation of Mathematical Techniques
The author first provides examples of mixed boundary value problems and the mathematical background of integral functions and special functions. He then presents classic mathematical physics problems to explain the origin of mixed boundary value problems and the mathematical techniques that were developed to handle them. The remaining chapters solve various mixed boundary value problems using separation of variables, transform methods, the Wiener Hopf technique, Green 's function, and conformal mapping.
