Ordinary Differential Equations And Special Functions Form A Central Part In Many Branches Of Physics And Engineering. A Large Number Of Books Already Exist In These Areas And Informations Are Therefore Available In A Scattered Form. The Present Book Tries To Bring Out Some Of The Most Important Concepts Associated With Linear Ordinary Differential Equations And The Special Functions Of Frequent Occurrence, In A Rather Elementary Form.The Methods Of Obtaining Series Solution Of Second Order Linear Ordinary Differential Equations Near An Ordinary Point As Well As Near A Regular Singular Point Have Been Explained In An Elegant Manner And, As Applications Of These Methods, The Special Functions Of Hermite And Bessel Have Been Dealt With.The Special Functions Of Legendre And Laguerre Have Also Been Discussed Briefly. An Appendix Is Prepared To Deal With Other Special Functions Such As The Beta Function, The Gamma Function, The Hypergeometric Functions And The Chebyshev Polynomials In A Short Form.The Topics Involving The Existence Theory And The Eigenvalue Problems Have Also Been Discussed In The Book To Create Motivation For Further Studies In The Subject.Each Chapter Is Supplemented With A Number Of Worked Out Examples As Well As A Number Of Problems To Be Handled For Better Understanding Of The Subject. R Contains A List Of Sixteen Important Books Forming The Bibliography.In This Second Edition The Text Has Been Thoroughly Revised.

(308 Pages). This book is written to provide an easy to follow study on the subject of Special Functions and Orthogonal Polynomials. It is written in such a way that it can be used as a self study text. Basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations is needed. The book is intended to help students in engineering, physics and applied sciences understand various aspects of Special Functions and Orthogonal Polynomials that very often occur in engineering, physics, mathematics and applied sciences. The book is organized in chapters that are in a sense self contained. Chapter 1 deals with series solutions of Differential Equations. Gamma and Beta functions are studied in Chapter 2 together with other functions that are defined by integrals. Legendre Polynomials and Functions are studied in Chapter 3. Chapters 4 and 5 deal with Hermite, Laguerre and other Orthogonal Polynomials. A detailed treatise of Bessel Function in given in Chapter 6.

Differentialgeometrie und Topologie sind wichtige Werkzeuge für die Theoretische Physik. Insbesondere finden sie Anwendung in den Gebieten der Astrophysik, der Teilchen- und Festkörperphysik. Das vorliegende beliebte Buch, das nun erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt wurde, ist eine ideale Einführung für Masterstudenten und Forscher im Bereich der theoretischen und mathematischen Physik. - Im ersten Kapitel bietet das Buch einen Überblick über die Pfadintegralmethode und Eichtheorien. - Kapitel 2 beschäftigt sich mit den mathematischen Grundlagen von Abbildungen, Vektorräumen und der Topologie. - Die folgenden Kapitel beschäftigen sich mit fortgeschritteneren Konzepten der Geometrie und Topologie und diskutieren auch deren Anwendungen im Bereich der Flüssigkristalle, bei suprafluidem Helium, in der ART und der bosonischen Stringtheorie. - Daran anschließend findet eine Zusammenführung von Geometrie und Topologie statt: es geht um Faserbündel, characteristische Klassen und Indextheoreme (u.a. in Anwendung auf die supersymmetrische Quantenmechanik). - Die letzten beiden Kapitel widmen sich der spannendsten Anwendung von Geometrie und Topologie in der modernen Physik, nämlich den Eichfeldtheorien und der Analyse der Polakov'schen bosonischen Stringtheorie aus einer gemetrischen Perspektive. Mikio Nakahara studierte an der Universität Kyoto und am King’s in London Physik sowie klassische und Quantengravitationstheorie. Heute ist er Physikprofessor an der Kinki-Universität in Osaka (Japan), wo er u. a. über topologische Quantencomputer forscht. Diese Buch entstand aus einer Vorlesung, die er während Forschungsaufenthalten an der University of Sussex und an der Helsinki University of Sussex gehalten hat.

It is ten years since Adolf Griinbaum published the first edition of this book. It was promptly recognized to be one of the few major works in the philosophy of the natural sciences of this generation. In part, this is so because Griinbaum has chosen a problem basic both to philosophy and to the natural sciences - the nature of space and time; and in part, this is so because he so admirably exemplifies that Aristotelian devotion to the intimate and mutual dependence of actual science and philosophical understanding. More than this, however, the quality of his work derives from his achievement in combining detail with scope. The problems of space and time have been among the most difficult in contemporary and classical thought, and Griinbaum has been responsible to the full depth and complexity of these difficulties. This revised and enlarged second edition is a work in progress, in the tradition of reflective analysis of modern science of such figures as Ehrenfest and Reichenbach. In publishing this work among the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science, we hope to contribute to and encourage that broad tradition of natural philosophy which is marked by the close collaboration of philoso phers and scientists. To this end, we have published the proceedings of our Colloquia, of meetings and conferences here and abroad, as well as the works of single authors.

This comprehensive and well-written book provides a thorough understanding of the principles of modern physics, their relations, and their applications. Most of the developments in physics that took place during the twentieth century are called "modern"-something to be treated differently from the "classical" physics. This book offers a detailed presentation of a wide range of interesting topics, starting from the special theory of relativity, basics of quantum mechanics, atomic physics, spectroscopic studies of molecular structures, solid state physics, and proceeding all the way to exciting areas such as lasers, fibre optics and holography. An in-depth treatment of the different aspects of nuclear physics focuses on nuclear properties, nuclear models, fission, fusion, particle accelerators and detectors. The book concludes with a chapter on elementary interactions, symmetries, conservation laws, the quark model and the grand unified theory. Clear and readable, this book is eminently suitable as a text for B.Sc. (physics) course.

Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser Titel erschien in der Zeit vor 1945 und wird daher in seiner zeittypischen politisch-ideologischen Ausrichtung vom Verlag nicht beworben.
