Scattering theory for diffraction gratings by Calvin H Wilcox( Book )
11 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Scattering theory is developed for plane diffraction gratings. The author's theory of Rayleigh-Bloch wave expansions is used to construct wave operators and a scattering operator for such gratings. For gratings that admit no surface waves, transient wave fields near the gratings are shown to behave for large times like free waves and corresponding asymptotic wave functions are calculated. These results are applied to analyze the echoes from gratings of signals due to localized sources. Finally, the echoes of sources remote from the grating are estimated and shown to be completely characterized by the S-matrix and the signal waveform. (Author)
Analytical and computational methods of advanced engineering mathematics by Grant B Gustafson( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(NOTES)This text focuses on the topics which are an essential part of the engineering mathematics course:ordinary differential equations, vector calculus, linear algebra and partial differential equations. Advantages over competing texts: 1. The text has a large number of examples and problems - a typical section having 25 quality problems directly related to the text. 2. The authors use a practical engineering approach based upon solving equations. All ideas and definitions are introduced from this basic viewpoint, which allows engineers in their second year to understand concepts that would otherwise be impossibly abstract. Partial differential equations are introduced in an engineering and science context based upon modelling of physical problems. A strength of the manuscript is the vast number of applications to real-world problems, each treated completely and in sufficient depth to be self-contained. 3. Numerical analysis is introduced in the manuscript at a completely elementary calculus level. In fact, numerics are advertised as just an extension of the calculus and used generally as enrichment, to help communicate the role of mathematics in engineering applications. 4. The authors have used and updated the book as a course text over a 10 year period. 5. Modern outline, as contrasted to the outdated outline by Kreysig and Wylie. 6. This is now a one year course. The text is shorter and more readable than the current reference type manuals published all at around 1300-1500 pages
