The main purpose of this book is to provide a self-contained and systematic development of an aspect of analysis which deals with the theory of fundamental solutions for differential operators and their applications to boundary value problems of mathematical physics, applied mathematics, and engineering, with the related computational aspects. A variety of classical application topics are presented in physics, quantum mechanics, elasticity and fluid dynamics. Additional applications include maximum principle, Cauchy problem, heat and wave potentials, wave propagation, anisotropy, porous media, piezocrystal waves, plate bending, and boundary element methods. Computational components receive special attention throughout the book. The book offers an accessible and up-to-date survey for advanced students, researchers and scientists in applied mathematics, mathematical physics, engineering and the physical sciences. Features: Extensive applications topics presented in detail, with numerous worked examples AAcAcAnAAc Coverage of over 70 different differential operators and derivation of fundamental solutions for them by using Fourier transforms and the theory of distributions AAcAcAnAAc Computational components discussed in all relevant topics and applicationsThe main purpose of this book is to provide a self-contained and systematic development of an aspect of analysis which deals with the theory of fundamental solutions for differential operators and their applications to boundary value ...
