Asymptotic and computational analysis conference in honor of Frank W.J. Olver's 65th birthday ( )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Papers presented at the International Symposium on Asymptotic and Computational Analysis, held June 1989, Winnipeg, Man., sponsored by the Dept. of Applied Mathematics, University of Manitoba and the Canadian Applied Mathematics Society
Asymptotic approximations of integrals by R Wong ( Book )
20 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English 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 up-to-date 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 )
13 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 281 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 graduate-level textbook as well as a convenient reference"--

The collected papers of Stephen Smale by Stephen Smale ( )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This invaluable book contains the collected papers of Stephen Smale. These are divided into eight groups: topology; calculus of variations; dynamics; mechanics; economics; biology, electric circuits and mathematical programming; theory of computation; miscellaneous. In addition, each group contains one or two articles by world leaders on its subject which comment on the influence of Smale's work, and another article by Smale with his own retrospective views

Proceedings of the international workshop, special functions : Hong Kong, 21-25 June 1999 by Harmonic Analysis and Mathematical Physics International Workshop on Special Functions - Asymptotics ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Special functions and q-series are currently very active areas of research which overlap with many other areas of mathematics, such as representation theory, classical and quantum groups, affine Lie algebras, number theory, harmonic analysis, and mathematical physics. This book presents the state-of-the-art of the subject and its applications
Differential Equations And Asymptotic Theory In Mathematical Physics by Zhen Hua ( )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This lecture notes volume encompasses four indispensable mini courses delivered at Wuhan University with each course containing the material from five one-hour lectures. Readers are brought up to date with exciting recent developments in the areas of asymptotic analysis, singular perturbations, orthogonal polynomials, and the application of Gevrey asymptotic expansion to holomorphic dynamical systems. The book also features important invited papers presented at the conference. Leading experts in the field cover a diverse range of topics from partial differential equations arising in cancer bio

Motivation a biobehavioural approach by Roderick Wong ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Provides the reader with an understanding of why individuals exhibit certain behaviors, and what causes these actions. Roderick Wong presents an analysis of motivated behavior such as sexual activity, parental behavior, food selection, and fear or aggression, from a biological perspective. Each chapter focuses on the individual systems underlying specific motivational states that result in motivated acts. The author discusses similarities, differences, and integration between these motivational systems throughout the volume. Using a framework derived from research and theory from animal behavior and comparative psychology, he analyzes relevant issues in human motivation such as mate choice, nepotism, attachment and independence, sensation-seeking, obesity, and parent-offspring conflict
