Special Functions of Mathematical Physics

A Unified Introduction with Applications

With students of Physics chiefly in mind, we have collected the material on special functions that is most important in mathematical physics and quan tum mechanics. We have not attempted to provide the most extensive collec tion possible of information about special functions, but have set ourselves the task of finding an exposition which, based on a unified approach, ensures the possibility of applying the theory in other natural sciences, since it pro vides a simple and effective method for the independent solution of problems that arise in practice in physics, engineering and mathematics. For the American edition we have been able to improve a number of proofs; in particular, we have given a new proof of the basic theorem (§3). This is the fundamental theorem of the book; it has now been extended to cover difference equations of hypergeometric type (§§12, 13). Several sections have been simplified and contain new material. We believe that this is the first time that the theory of classical or thogonal polynomials of a discrete variable on both uniform and nonuniform lattices has been given such a coherent presentation, together with its various applications in physics.

Special Matrices of Mathematical Physics

Stochastic, Circulant, and Bell Matrices

Author: Ruben Aldrovandi

Publisher: World Scientific

ISBN: 9789812799838

Category: Mathematics

Page: 340

View: 1937

This book expounds three special kinds of matrices that are of physical interest, centering on physical examples. Stochastic matrices describe dynamical systems of many different types, involving (or not) phenomena like transience, dissipation, ergodicity, nonequilibrium, and hypersensitivity to initial conditions. The main characteristic is growth by agglomeration, as in glass formation. Circulants are the building blocks of elementary Fourier analysis and provide a natural gateway to quantum mechanics and noncommutative geometry. Bell polynomials offer closed expressions for many formulas concerning Lie algebra invariants, differential geometry and real gases, and their matrices are instrumental in the study of chaotic mappings. Contents: Basics: Some Fundamental Notions; Stochastic Matrices: Evolving Systems; Markov Chains; Glass Transition; The Kerner Model; Formal Developments; Equilibrium, Dissipation and Ergodicity; Circulant Matrices: Prelude; Definition and Main Properties; Discrete Quantum Mechanics; Quantum Symplectic Structure; Bell Matrices: An Organizing Tool; Bell Polynomials; Determinants and Traces; Projectors and Iterates; Gases: Real and Ideal. Readership: Mathematical physicists, statistical physicists and researchers in the field of combinatorics and graph theory.

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in the formulation of physical theories. This textbook provides a self-contained and rigorous presentation of the main mathematical tools needed in many fields of Physics, both classical and quantum. It covers topics treated in mathematics courses for final-year undergraduate and graduate physics programmes, including complex function: distributions, Fourier analysis, linear operators, Hilbert spaces and eigenvalue problems. The different topics are organised into two main parts — complex analysis and vector spaces — in order to stress how seemingly different mathematical tools, for instance the Fourier transform, eigenvalue problems or special functions, are all deeply interconnected. Also contained within each chapter are fully worked examples, problems and detailed solutions. A companion volume covering more advanced topics that enlarge and deepen those treated here is also available.

Group Theory in Physics

An Introduction to Symmetry Principles, Group Representations, and Special Functions in Classical and Quantum Physics

Author: Wu-Ki Tung

Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company

ISBN: 981310404X

Category: Representations of groups

Page: 336

View: 9466

An introductory text book for graduates and advanced undergraduates on group representation theory. It emphasizes group theory's role as the mathematical framework for describing symmetry properties of classical and quantum mechanical systems. Familiarity with basic group concepts and techniques is invaluable in the education of a modern-day physicist. This book emphasizes general features and methods which demonstrate the power of the group-theoretical approach in exposing the systematics of physical systems with associated symmetry. Particular attention is given to pedagogy. In developing the theory, clarity in presenting the main ideas and consequences is given the same priority as comprehensiveness and strict rigor. To preserve the integrity of the mathematics, enough technical information is included in the appendices to make the book almost self-contained. A set of problems and solutions has been published in a separate booklet. Request Inspection Copy

Mathematics of Physics and Engineering

Aimed at scientists and engineers, this book is an exciting intellectual journey through the mathematical worlds of Euclid, Newton, Maxwell, Einstein, and Schrodinger-Dirac. While similar books present the required mathematics in a piecemeal manner with tangential references to the relevant physics and engineering, this textbook serves the interdisciplinary needs of engineers, scientists and applied mathematicians by unifying the mathematics and physics into a single systematic body of knowledge but preserving the rigorous logical development of the mathematics. The authors take an unconventional approach by integrating the mathematics with its motivating physical phenomena and, conversely, by showing how the mathematical models predict new physical phenomena.
