Mathematical Methods in Physics: Partial Differential Equations, Fourier Series, and Special Functions

1st Edition

Victor Henner, Tatyana Belozerova, Kyle Forinash
June 18, 2009

This book is a text on partial differential equations (PDEs) of mathematical physics and boundary value problems, trigonometric Fourier series, and special functions. This is the core content of many courses in the fields of engineering, physics, mathematics, and applied mathematics. The...

The Wraparound Universe

1st Edition

Jean-Pierre Luminet
March 21, 2008

What shape is the universe? Is it curved and closed in on itself? Is it expanding? Where is it headed? Could space be wrapped around itself, such that it produces ghost images of faraway galaxies? Such are the questions posed by Jean-Pierre Luminet in The Wraparound Universe, which he then...
