Generalized analytic functions by
I. N Vekua(
)
2 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Generalized Analytic Functions is concerned with foundations of the general theory of generalized analytic functions and some applications to problems of differential geometry and theory of shells. Some classes of functions and operators are discussed, along with the reduction of a positive differential quadratic form to the canonical form. Boundary value problems and infinitesimal bendings of surfaces are also considered.Comprised of six chapters, this volume begins with a detailed treatment of various problems of the general theory of generalized analytic functions as as well as boundary value problems. The reader is introduced to some classes of functions and functional spaces, with emphasis on functions of two independent variables. Subsequent chapters focus on the problem of reducing a positive differential quadratic form to the canonical form; basic properties of solutions of elliptic systems of partial differential equations of the first order, in a twodimensional domain; and some boundary value problems for an elliptic system of equations of the first order and for an elliptic equation of the second order, in a twodimensional domain. The final part of the book deals with problems of the theory of surfaces and the membrane theory of shells.This book is intended for students of advanced courses of the mechanicomathematical faculties, postgraduates, and research workers

Direct and Converse Theorems by
I. S Gradshteĭn(
)
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Direct and Converse Theorems: The Elements of Symbolic Logic, Third Edition explains the logical relations between direct, converse, inverse, and inverse converse theorems, as well as the concept of necessary and sufficient conditions. This book consists of two chapters. The first chapter is devoted to the question of negation. Connected with the question of the negation of a proposition are interrelations of the direct and converse and also of the direct and inverse theorems; the interrelations of necessary and sufficient conditions; and the definition of the locus of a point. The second chap
