Difference Equations: Theory, Applications and Advanced Topics, Third Edition

Ronald E. Mickens
April 13, 2018

Difference Equations: Theory, Applications and Advanced Topics, Third Edition provides a broad introduction to the mathematics of difference equations and some of their applications. Many worked examples illustrate how to calculate both exact and approximate solutions to special classes of...

Elastic Waves: High Frequency Theory

Vassily Babich, Aleksei Kiselev
April 03, 2018

Elastic Waves: High Frequency Theory is concerned with mathematical aspects of the theory of high-frequency elastic waves, which is based on the ray method. The foundations of elastodynamics are presented along with the basic theory of plane and spherical waves. The ray method is then described in...

Knot Theory: Second Edition

Vassily Olegovich Manturov
March 29, 2018

Over the last fifteen years, the face of knot theory has changed due to various new theories and invariants coming from physics, topology, combinatorics and alge-bra. It suffices to mention the great progress in knot homology theory (Khovanov homology and Ozsvath-Szabo Heegaard-Floer homology), the...
