Asymptotic approximations of integrals by
Roderick Wong(
Book
)
30 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Asymptotic methods are frequently used in many branches of both pure and applied mathematics, and this classic text remains the most uptodate book dealing with one important aspect of this area, namely, asymptotic approximations of integrals. In Asymptotic Approximations of Integrals, all results are proved rigorously, and many of the approximation formulas are accompanied by error bounds. A thorough discussion on multidimensional integrals is given, and references are provided. The book contains the "distributional method," which is not available elsewhere. Most of the examples in this text come from concrete applications. Since its publication twelve years ago, significant developments have occurred in the general theory of asymptotic expansions, including smoothing of the Stokes phenomenon, uniform exponentially improved asymptotic expansions, and hyperasymptotics. These new concepts belong to the area now known as "exponential asymptotics." Expositions of these new theories are available in papers published in various journals, but not yet in book form. Audience: this book can be used either as a text for graduate students in mathematics, physics, and engineering or as a reference for research workers in these fields

Special functions : a graduate text by
Richard Beals(
Book
)
15 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The subject of special functions is often presented as a collection of disparate results, which are rarely organised in a coherent way. This book answers the need for a different approach to the subject. The authors' main goals are to emphasise general unifying principles coherently and to provide clear motivation, efficient proofs, and original references for all of the principal results. The book covers standard material, but also much more, including chapters on discrete orthogonal polynomials and elliptic functions. The authors show how a very large part of the subject traces back to two equations  the hypergeometric equation and the confluent hypergeometric equation  and describe the various ways in which these equations are canonical and special. Providing ready access to theory and formulas, this book serves as an ideal graduatelevel textbook as well as a convenient reference"
