"Approximate and Renormgroup Symmetries" deals with approximate transformation groups, symmetries of integro-differential equations and renormgroup symmetries. It includes a concise and self-contained introduction to basic concepts and methods of Lie group analysis, and provides an easy-to-follow introduction to the theory of approximate transformation groups and symmetries of integro-differential equations.
The book is designed for specialists in nonlinear physics - mathematicians and non-mathematicians - interested in methods of applied group analysis for investigating nonlinear problems in physical science and engineering.
Dr. N.H. Ibragimov is a professor at the Department of Mathematics and Science, Research Centre ALGA, Sweden.

Kovalev is a leading scientist at the Institute for Mathematical Modeling, Russian Academy of Science, Moscow.
Review
From the reviews: "The book is dedicated to new trends in applied group analysis focused on the computation of approximate symmetries of differential equation systems containing a small parameter. ... Many worked out examples are offered illustrating the general theory. ... This is a short, self contained book providing a valuable reference for the application-oriented reader." (Fernando Haas, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 f)
