Description

The extensive additions, and the inclusion of a new chapter, has made this classic work by Jeffrey, now joined by co-author Dr. H.H. Dai, an even more essential reference for researchers and students in applied mathematics, engineering, and physics. It provides quick access to important formulas, relationships between functions, and mathematical techniques that range from matrix theory and integrals of commonly occurring functions to vector calculus, ordinary and partial differential equations, special functions, Fourier series, orthogonal polynomials, and Laplace and Fourier transforms. During the preparation of this edition full advantage was taken of the recently updated seventh edition of Gradshteyn and Ryzhik’s Table of Integrals, Series, and Products and other important reference works. Suggestions from users of the third edition of the Handbook have resulted in the expansion of many sections, and because of the relevance to boundary value problems for the Laplace equation in the plane, a new chapter on conformal mapping, has been added, complete with an atlas of useful mappings.

Reviews

“This book would find a place on the bookshelf of a professional as a nice reference source. The level is appropriate for our physics majors for use as a reference book.” --Professor Bryan H. Suits, Physics Department, Michigan Technological University “...the 4th edition will be more useful for the students, faculty and professionals in mathematics, science and engineering. Jeffrey has written many books and handbooks and has a tremendous reputation as an author...” --Lokenath Debnath, Chair and Professor at University of Texas, Pan American
