An enormous array of problems encountered by scientists and engineers

#### Synopsis

An enormous array of problems encountered by scientists and engineersare based on the design of mathematical models using many different types of ordinary differential, partial differential, integral, and integro-differential equations. Accordingly, the solutions of these equations areof great interest to practitioners and to science in general.Presentinga wealthof cutting-edgeresearchbya diverse group ofexperts in the field, *Integral Methods in Science and Engineering: Computational and Analytic Aspects*gives a vivid picture of both the development of theoretical integral techniques and their use in specific science and engineering problems.

This bookwill be valuable for researchers in applied mathematics, physics, and mechanical and electrical engineering. It will likewise be a usefulstudy guideforgraduate students in these disciplines, and for various other professionals who use integration as an essential technique in their work.
