2 Reviews
In this book the author presents the theory and techniques underlying perturbation methods in a manner that will make the book widely appealing to readers in a broad range of disciplines. Methods of algebraic equations, asymptotic expansions, integrals, PDEs, strained coordinates, and multiple scales are illustrated by copious use of examples drawn from many areas of mathematics and physics. The philosophy adopted is that there is no single or best method for such problems, but that one may exploit the small parameter given some experience and understanding of similar perturbation problems. The author does not look to perturbation methods to give quantitative answers but rather uses them to give a physical understanding of the subtle balances in a complex problem.
