Difference Equations : Theory, Applications and Advanced Topics, Third Edition Hardback

Part of the Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs and Research Notes in Mathematics series

Description

Difference Equations: Theory, Applications and Advanced Topics, Third Edition provides a broad introduction to the mathematics of difference equations and some of their applications.

Many worked examples illustrate how to calculate both exact and approximate solutions to special classes of difference equations.

Along with adding several advanced topics, this edition continues to cover general, linear, first-, second-, and n-th order difference equations; nonlinear equations that may be reduced to linear equations; and partial difference equations. New to the Third EditionNew chapter on special topics, including discrete Cauchy-Euler equations; gamma, beta, and digamma functions; Lambert W-function; Euler polynomials; functional equations; and exact discretizations of differential equationsNew chapter on the application of difference equations to complex problems arising in the mathematical modeling of phenomena in engineering and the natural and social sciences Additional problems in all chaptersExpanded bibliography to include recently published texts related to the subject of difference equationsSuitable for self-study or as the main text for courses on difference equations, this book helps readers understand the fundamental concepts and procedures of difference equations.

It uses an informal presentation style, avoiding the minutia of detailed proofs and formal explanations.
