Mobius Inversion in Physics Hardback
by Chen Nanxian
Part of the Tsinghua Report and Review in Physics series
This book attempts to bridge the gap between the principles of pure mathematics and the applications in physical science.
After the Moebius inversion formula had been considered as purely academic, or beyond what was useful in the physics community for more than 150 years, the apparently obscure result in classical mathematics suddenly appears to be connected to a variety of important inverse problems in physical science.This book only requires readers to have some background in elementary calculus and general physics, and the prerequisite knowledge of number theory is not needed.
It will be attractive to our multidisciplinary readers interested in the Moebius technique, which is a tiny but important part of the number-theoretic methods.
It will inspire many students and researchers in both physics and mathematics.
In a practical problem, continuity and discreteness are often correlated, and few textbooks have given attention to this wide and important field as this one.Clearly, this book will be an essential supplement for many existing courses such as mathematical physics, elementary number theory and discrete mathematics.
