Handbook of applied mathematics : selected results and methods by
Carl E Pearson(
Book
)
34 editions published between 1974 and 1990 in English and Spanish and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Most of the topics in applied mathematics dealt with in this handbook can be grouped rather loosely under the term analysis. They involve results and techniques which experience has shown to be of utility in a very broad variety of applications. Although care has been taken to collect certain basic results in convenient form, it is not the purpose of this handbook to duplicate the excellent collections of tables and formulas available in the National Bureau of Standards Handbook of Mathematical Functions (AMS Series 55, U.S. Government Printing Office) and in the references given therein. Rather, the emphasis in the present handbook is on technique, and we are indeed fortunate that a number of eminent applied mathe maticians have been willing to share with us their interpretations and experiences. To avoid the necessity of frequent and disruptive crossreferencing, it is expected that the reader will make full use of the index. Moreover, each chapter has been made as selfsufficient as is feasible. This procedure has resulted in occasional duplication, but as compensation for this the reader may appreciate the availability of different points of view concerning certain topics of current interest. As editor, I would like to express my appreciation to the contributing authors, to the reviewers, to the editorial staff of the publisher, and to the many secretaries and typists who have worked on the manuscript; without the partnership of all of these people, this handbook would not have been possible

Ordinary differential equations by
George F Carrier(
Book
)
30 editions published between 1958 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Offers an alternative to the "rote" approach of presenting standard categories of differential equations accompanied by routine problem sets. The exercises presented amplify and provide perspective for the material, often giving readers opportunity for ingenuity. Little or no previous acquaintance with the subject is required to learn usage of techniques for constructing solutions of differential equations in this reprint volume

Functions of a complex variable : theory and practice by
George F Carrier(
Book
)
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Functions of a complex variable are used to solve applications in various branches of mathematics, science, and engineering. Functions of a Complex Variable: Theory and Technique is a book in a special category of influential classics because it is based on the authors' extensive experience in modeling complicated situations and providing analytic solutions. The book makes available to readers a comprehensive range of these analytical techniques based upon complex variable theory. Advanced topics covered include asymptotics, transforms, the WienerHopf method, and dual and singular integral equations. The authors provide many exercises, incorporating them into the body of the text. Audience: intended for applied mathematicians, scientists, engineers, and senior or graduatelevel students who have advanced knowledge in calculus and are interested in such subjects as complex variable theory, function theory, mathematical methods, advanced engineering mathematics, and mathematical physics

Numerical Stream Line Approach to Free Surface Problems(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A numerical method, based on the iteration of stream line positions, is described for incompressible inviscid (but not necessarily irrotational) steady flow with a free surface. The method is accurate and efficient, and appears susceptible of generalization. (Author)

BALLOON DYNAMICS(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
IN METEOROLOGICAL AND ASTRONOMICAL BALLOON APPLICATIONS, A HIGH DEGREE OF ROTATIONAL STABILITY ABOUT THE VERTICAL AXIS IS ESSENTIAL. Large plastic balloons in current use tend to experience large rotational motions in azimuth during ascent, descent, and even at ceiling. A study was conducted to examine possible causes of the rotational motion and to determine damping. Flow instability was found to be the principal source of rotational motion. Equations were obtained which govern the vertical motion of the balloon, the thermodynamics of the enclosed gas, and the heat transfer mechanisms between atmosphere, fabric and enclosed gas. The empirical constants involved were evaluated and a digital computer program was prepared for the solution of the equations

Development of a Streamline Method(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The research investigated and developed a novel streamline method for the computation of steady state compressible flows in ducts and axial compressors. The method is based on the description of a streamline in terms of axial position and two parameters. A coupled pair of second order differential equation are developed and solved by a relaxing process in the subsonic case, and by downstream marching in the supersonic case. Computational Aerodynamics, Axial flows. (mjm)
