  • About the Edition

    This textbook is a comprehensive introduction to variational methods. Its unifying aspect, based on appropriate concepts of compactness, is the study of critical points of functionals via direct methods. It shows the interactions between linear and nonlinear functional analysis. Addressing in particular the interests of physicists, the authors treat in detail the variational problems of mechanics and classical field theories, writing on local linear and nonlinear boundary and eigenvalue problems of important classes of nonlinear partial differential equations, and giving more recent results on Thomas-Fermi theory and on problems involving critical nonlinearities. This book is an excellentintroduction for students in mathematics and mathematical physics.

    A comprehensive guide to using energy principles and variational methods for solving problems in solid mechanics. This book provides a systematic, highly practical introduction to the use of energy principles, traditional variational methods, and the finite element method for the solution of engineering problems involving bars, beams, torsion, plane elasticity, trusses, and plates. This book presents tutorial overviews for many applications of variational methods to molecular modeling. Topics discussed include the Gibbs-Bogoliubov-Feynman variational principle, square.

    Mathematical Methods in Physics: Distributions, Hilbert Space Operators, Variational Methods, and Applications in Quantum Physics Philippe Blanchard, Erwin Brüning (auth.) The second edition of this textbook presents the basic mathematical knowledge and skills that are needed for courses on modern theoretical physics, such as those on quantum.

    There is a resurgence of applications in which the calculus of variations has direct relevance. In addition to application to solid mechanics and dynamics, it is now being applied in a variety of numerical methods, numerical grid generation, modern physics, various optimization settings, and fluid dynamics, for example. Many of these applications, such as nonlinear optimal control theory. This book provides researchers and graduate students with a thorough introduction to the variational analysis of nonlinear problems described by nonlocal operators. The authors give a systematic treatment of the basic mathematical theory and constructive methods for these classes of nonlinear equations, plus their application to various Cited by:

Mathematical Methods in Physics is aimed at a broad community of graduate students in mathematics, mathematical physics, quantum information theory, physics and engineering, as well as researchers in these disciplines.

Expanded content and relevant updates will make this new edition a valuable resource for those working in these disciplines. Physics has long been regarded as a wellspring of mathematical problems. Mathematical Methods in Physics is a self-contained presentation, driven by historic motivations, excellent examples, detailed proofs, and a focus on those parts of mathematics that are needed in more ambitious courses on quantum mechanics and classical and quantum field theory.
