Handbook of Integral Equations Second Edition, Updated, Revised and Extended
Publisher: Chapman & Hall/CRC Press
Publication Date: 14 February 2008
Number of Pages: 1144

Summary

Contains over 2,500 linear and nonlinear integral equations and their exact solutions  much more than any other book currently available

Outlines exact, approximate analytical, and numerical methods for solving integral equations

Illustrates the application of the methods with numerous examples

Explores equations that arise in elasticity, plasticity, creep, heat and mass transfer, hydrodynamics, chemical engineering, and other areas
Unparalleled in scope compared to the literature currently available, the Handbook of Integral Equations, Second Edition
contains over 2,500 integral equations with solutions as well as analytical and numerical methods for solving linear
and nonlinear equations. It explores Volterra, Fredholm, WienerHopf, Hammerstein, Uryson, and other equations
that arise in mathematics, physics, engineering, the sciences, and economics. With 300 additional pages,
this edition covers much more material than its predecessor.
New to the Second Edition

New material on Volterra, Fredholm, singular, hypersingular, dual, and nonlinear integral equations, integral transforms, and special functions

More than 400 new equations with exact solutions

New chapters on mixed multidimensional equations and methods of integral equations for ODEs and PDEs

Additional examples for illustrative purposes
To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the authors avoid wherever possible the use of special terminology, outline some of the methods in a schematic, simplified manner, and arrange the material in increasing order of complexity. The book can be used as a database of test problems for numerical and approximate methods for solving linear and nonlinear integral equations.
