#### Polaritons in Periodic and Quasiperiodic Structures

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 175.00In recent years there have been exciting developments in techniques for producing multilayered structures of different materials, often with thicknesses as small as only a few atomic layers. These artificial structures, known as superlattices, can either be grown with the layers stacked in an alternating fashion (the periodic case) or according to... more...

#### Handbook of Special Functions

CRC Press 2008; US$ 132.95Because of the numerous applications involved in this field, the theory of special functions is under permanent development, especially regarding the requirements for modern computer algebra methods. The Handbook of Special Functions provides in-depth coverage of special functions, which are used to help solve many of the most difficult problems in... more...

#### Special Functions for Applied Scientists

Springer New York 2008; US$ 111.96Chapter 1 introduces elementary classical special functions. Gamma, beta, psi, zeta functions, hypergeometric functions and the associated special functions, generalizations to Meijer's G and Fox's H-functions are examined here. Discussion is confined to basic properties and selected applications. Introduction to statistical distribution theory... more...

#### Tata Lectures on Theta I

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 67.45This volume is the first of three in a series surveying the theory of theta functions which play a central role in the fields of complex analysis, algebraic geometry, number theory and most recently particle physics. more...

#### Topics in Almost Automorphy

Springer US 2007; US$ 111.96Since the publication of our first book [80], there has been a real resiu-gence of interest in the study of almost automorphic functions and their applications ([16, 17, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 40, 41, 42, 46, 51, 58, 74, 75, 77, 78, 79]). New methods (method of invariant s- spaces, uniform spectrum), and new concepts (almost periodicity and almost automorphy... more...

#### Zeta Functions, Topology and Quantum Physics

Springer US 2008; US$ 179.14This volume contains papers by invited speakers of the symposium "Zeta Functions, Topology and Quantum Physics" held at Kinki U- versity in Osaka, Japan, during the period of March 3-6, 2003. The aims of this symposium were to establish mutual understanding and to exchange ideas among researchers working in various fields which have relation to zeta... more...

#### The Special Functions and Their Approximations

Elsevier Science 1969; US$ 135.00A detailed and self-contained and unified treatment of many mathematical functions which arise in applied problems, as well as the attendant mathematical theory for their approximations. many common features of the Bessel functions, Legendre functions, incomplete gamma functions, confluent hypergeometric functions, as well as of otherw, can be derived.... more...

#### Dual Sets of Envelopes and Characteristic Regions of Quasi-Polynomials

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 78.00 US$ 70.98Existence and nonexistence of roots of functions involving one or more parameters has been the subject of numerous investigations. For a wide class of functions called quasi-polynomials, the above problems can be transformed into the existence and nonexistence of tangents of the envelope curves associated with the functions under investigation. In... more...
