Sturm-Liouville Theory and its Applications
BeschreibungDeveloped from a course taught to senior undergraduates, this book provides a unified introduction to Fourier analysis and special functions based on the Sturm-Liouville theory in L2. The text's presentation follows a clear, rigorous mathematical style that is highly readable. The author first establishes the basic results of Sturm-Liouville theory and then provides examples and applications to illustrate the theory. The final two chapters, on Fourier and Laplace transformations, demonstrate the use of the Fourier series method for representing functions to integral representations.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"As this book amply demonstrates, Sturm-Liouville theory, a special topic within ordinary different equations, affords the student a nearly perfect case-study-type initiation into higher mathematics. ... Summing Up: Recommended. General readers, undergraduates, professionals." (D. V. Feldman, Choice, Vol. 46 (2), October, 2008)
