Green's Functions and Infinite Products
BeschreibungGreen's Functions and Infinite Products provides a thorough introduction to the classical subjects of the construction of Green's functions for the two-dimensional Laplace equation and the infinite product representation of elementary functions. Every chapter begins with a review guide, outlining the basic concepts covered. A set of carefully designed challenging exercises is available at the end of each chapter to provide the reader with the opportunity to explore the concepts in more detail. Hints, comments, and answers to most of those exercises can be found at the end of the text. In addition, several illustrative examples are offered at the end of most sections. This text is intended for an elective graduate course or seminar within the scope of either pure or applied mathematics.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews: "The book under review is an interesting textbook which is intended for students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) specializing in pure and applied mathematics. It may be considered as a good complement to standard courses in analysis and differential equations." (Konstantin Yu. Fedorovski , Mathematical Reviews, May, 2013) "The present book provides an introduction to some recent research of the author based on a method for deriving infinite product representations for the Green's functions of the two-dimensional Laplace equation on certain domains. ... The book contains ample background material on infinite products and Green's functions ... and is, hence, accessible for graduate students. In particular, the presentation is clear and self-contained." (G. Teschl, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 166 (3-4), June, 2012) "This book is devoted to some new infinite products for trigonometric and hyperbolic functions. ... the infinite products investigated in the book have the same speed of convergence as the classical ones. ... The book is written on a very comprehensive level and can be useful for students studying equations of mathematical physics and computer modeling." (Yana Kinderknecht, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1235, 2012)
