Classical and Modern Numerical Analysis: Theory, Methods and Practice provides a sound foundation in numerical analysis for more specialized topics, such as finite element theory, advanced numerical linear algebra, and optimization. It prepares graduate students for taking doctoral examinations in numerical analysis. The text covers the main areas of introductory numerical analysis, including the solution of nonlinear equations, numerical linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, approximation theory, numerical integration, and boundary value problems. Focusing on interval computing in numerical analysis, it explains interval arithmetic, interval computation, and interval algorithms. The authors illustrate the concepts with many examples as well as analytical and computational exercises at the end of each chapter. This advanced, graduate-level introduction to the theory and methods of numerical analysis supplies the necessary background in numerical methods so that students can apply the techniques and understand the mathematical literature in this area. Although the book is independent of a specific computer program, MATLAB® code is available on the authors' website to illustrate various concepts.

This monograph presents the theory and modern numerical analysis of Volterra integral and integro-differential equations, including equations with weakly singular kernels. While the research worker will find an up-to-date account of recent developments of numerical methods for such equations, including an extensive bibliography, the authors have tried to make the book accessible to the non-specialist possessing only a limited knowledge of numerical analysis. After an introduction to the theory of Volterra equations and to numerical integration, the book covers linear methods and Runge-Kutta methods, collocation methods based on polynomial spline functions, stability of numerical methods, and it surveys computer programs for Volterra integral and integro-differential equations.

This book presents the subject of integral equations in an accessible manner for a variety of applications. Emphasis is placed on understanding the subject while avoiding the abstract and compact theorems. A distinctive feature of the book is that it introduces the recent powerful and reliable developments in this field, which are not covered in traditional texts. The newly developed decomposition method, the series solution method and the direct computation method are thoroughly implemented, which allows the topic to be far more accessible. The book also includes some of the traditional techniques for comparison.Using the newly developed methods, the author successfully handles Fredholm and Volterra integral equations, singular integral equations, integro-differential equations and nonlinear integral equations, with promising results for linear and nonlinear models. Many examples are given to introduce the material in a clear and thorough fashion. In addition, many exercises are provided to build confidence, ease and skill in using the new methods.This book may be used as a text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in mathematics and scientific areas, and as a work of reference for research study of differential equations and numerical analysis.

This book presents numerical and other approximation techniques for solving various types of mathematical problems that cannot be solved analytically. In addition to well known methods, it contains some non-standard approximation techniques that are now formally collected as well as original methods developed by the author that do not appear in the literature. This book contains an extensive treatment of approximate solutions to various types of integral equations, a topic that is not often discussed in detail. There are detailed analyses of ordinary and partial differential equations and descriptions of methods for estimating the values of integrals that are presented in a level of detail that will suggest techniques that will be useful for developing methods for approximating solutions to problems outside of this text. The book is intended for researchers who must approximate solutions to problems that cannot be solved analytically. It is also appropriate for students taking courses in numerical approximation techniques.

Integral Equations

Theory and Numerical Treatment

Category: Mathematics

View: 998

The theory of integral equations has been an active research field for many years and is based on analysis, function theory, and functional analysis. On the other hand, integral equations are of practical interest because of the «boundary integral equation method», which transforms partial differential equations on a domain into integral equations over its boundary. This book grew out of a series of lectures given by the author at the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum and the Christian-Albrecht-Universitat zu Kiel to students of mathematics. The contents of the first six chapters correspond to an intensive lecture course of four hours per week for a semester. Readers of the book require background from analysis and the foundations of numeri cal mathematics. Knowledge of functional analysis is helpful, but to begin with some basic facts about Banach and Hilbert spaces are sufficient. The theoretical part of this book is reduced to a minimum; in Chapters 2, 4, and 5 more importance is attached to the numerical treatment of the integral equations than to their theory. Important parts of functional analysis (e. g. , the Riesz-Schauder theory) are presented without proof. We expect the reader either to be already familiar with functional analysis or to become motivated by the practical examples given here to read a book about this topic. We recall that also from a historical point of view, functional analysis was initially stimulated by the investigation of integral equations.
