Integral operators in the theory of linear partial differential equations by
Stefan Bergman(
Book
)
55 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present book deals with the construction of solutions of linear partial differential equations by means of integral operators which transform analytic functions of a complex variable into such solutions. The theory of analytic functions has achieved a high degree of deve lopment and simplicity, and the operator method permits us to exploit this theory in the study of differential equations. Although the study of existence and uniqueness of solutions has been highly developed, much less attention has been paid to the investigation of function theo retical properties and to the explicit construction of regular and singular solutions using a unified general procedure. This book attempts to fill in the gap in this direction. Integral operators of various types have been used for a long time in the mathematical literature. In this connection one needs only to mention Euler and Laplace. The author has not attempted to give a complete account of all known operators, but rather has aimed at developing a unified approach. For this purpose he uses special operators which preserve various function theoretical properties of analytic functions, such as domains of regularity, validity of series development, connection between the coefficients of these developments and location and character of singularities, etc. However, all efforts were made to give a complete bibliography to help the reader to find more detailed information

Methods for determination and computation of flow patterns of a compressible fluid by
Stefan Bergman(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1945 and 1946 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A wellknown method of generating stream functions of an incompressible fluid flow is that of taking the imaginary part of an analytic function of a complex variable. In previous publications of the author this method was generalized to the case of subsonic flows of a compressible fluid. Flow patterns, which until the present, have proved impossible to obtain by existing methods, were obtained by this procedure; for example, flows around an obstacle the boundary of which is a closed curve, as well as around nonsymmetric profiles. The procedure can be extended to the case of partially subsonic flows. As this method for obtaining flow patterns of compressible fluid from analytic functions of a compressible fluid requires rather lengthy computations, the present paper is devoted to a detailed discussion of perfoming these computations. The operations are divided into two groups: namely, those which need only be carried out once and for all and then can be tabulated (or put on master cards) and those which have to be repeated in every individual case. A detailed description is given concerning the performance of necessary computations on punch card machines. This description is illustrated by an example

Recently Von Karman and Tsien constructed more general types of stream functions, but only in replacing the true pressure density relation by the linear pressurespecific volume relation so that their method is essentially limited to flows the maximum Mach number of which is not too large

On twodimensional supersonic flows by
Stefan Bergman(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In previous reports by the author, the method of operators has been applied to the investigation of twodimensional irrotational flow patterns of an ideal compressible fluid, mostly in the subsonic case. Using a similar approach in the present paper, the author defines two different operators which generate supersonic twodimensional flow patterns from differentiable functions of one real variable (An operator is any rule by means of which one function is converted into another. This concept is discusses in some detail in the body of this paper.) Since operators of the type considered preserve many properties of the functions to which they are applied and since the theory of functions of one real variable is more extensively developed than that of solutions of the compressibility equations, the results obtained can be used as a basis for the investigation of supersonic flow patterns

It is shown that the complete flow pattern around a closed obstacle cannot be obtained by the method of Chaplygin. In order to overcome this difficulty, a formula for the streamfunction of a twodimensional subsonic flow is derived. The formula involves an arbitrary function of a complex variable and yields all possible subsonic flow patterns of certain types
