About the book

INTRODUCTION TO GREEN’S FUNCTIONS IN PHYSICS begins with the introduction of Dirac delta functions and linear response functions. The principle aim is to make Physicists aware about Green’s function techniques relevant to the field of mathematics. The material covered is intended to prepare the reader and students for usual applications arising in physics and to furnish a sound background for those who wish to pursue the subject further. The subject is presented in a very systematic and logical manner. Emphasis is placed clearly on the use of basic concepts and techniques. This book covers the Green’s function in Mathematical Physics course at University level.

Key Features

Green’s Functions applicable in studying wide variety of physical problems are introduced.
• Discusses general nature on eigenfunctions expansion and boundary value problems.
• Green’s functions in one, two and three dimensional partial differential equations and scattering are included.
• Emphasis is given to the pedagogical side of the text to make it more legible to the students.
• Solved problems followed by exercises after each chapter.
