Spectral Theory of Guided Waves represents a distillation of the authors' (and others) efforts over several years to rigorously discuss many of the properties of guided waves. The bulk of the book deals with the properties of eigenwaves of regular waveguiding systems and relates these to a variety...

Exactly solvable models, that is, models with explicitly and completely diagonalizable Hamiltonians are too few in number and insufficiently diverse to meet the requirements of modern quantum physics. Quasi-exactly solvable (QES) models (whose Hamiltonians admit an explicit diagonalization only for...

In the theory of splines, a function is approximated piece-wise by (usually cubic) polynomials. Quasi-splines is the natural extension of this, allowing us to use any useful class of functions adapted to the problem.Approximation with Quasi-Splines is a detailed account of this highly useful...

With neutral differential equations, any lack of smoothness in initial conditions is not damped and so they have proven to be difficult to solve. Until now, there has been little information to help with this problem. Oscillation Theory for Neutral Differential Equations with Delay fills a vacuum...

This book has emerged from a meeting held during the week of May 29 to June 2, 1989, at St. John’s College in Santa Fe under the auspices of the Santa Fe Institute. The (approximately 40) official participants as well as equally numerous “groupies” were enticed to Santa Fe by the above “manifesto.”...
