This book provides students with solid knowledge of the basic principles of differential equations and a clear understanding of the various ways of obtaining their solutions by applying suitable methods. It is primarily intended to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of mathematics. It will also be useful for undergraduate engineering students of all disciplines as part of their course in engineering mathematics. No book on differential equations is complete without a treatment of special functions and special equations. A chapter in this book has been devoted to the detailed study of special functions such as the gamma function, beta function, hypergeometric function, and Bessel function, as well as special equations such as the Legendre equation, Chebyshev equation, Hermite equation, and Laguerre equation. The general properties of various orthogonal polynomials such as Legendre, Chebyshev, Hermite, and Laguerre have also been covered. A large number of solved examples as well as exercises at the end of many chapter sections help to comprehend as well as to strengthen the grasp of the underlying concepts and principles of the subject. The answers to all the exercises are provided at the end of the book.

Introduction to Structural Dynamics

This textbook, first published in 2006, provides the student of aerospace, civil and mechanical engineering with all the fundamentals of linear structural dynamics analysis. It is designed for an advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate course. This textbook is a departure from the usual presentation in two important respects. First, descriptions of system dynamics are based on the simpler to use Lagrange equations. Second, no organizational distinctions are made between multi-degree of freedom systems and single-degree of freedom systems. The textbook is organized on the basis of first writing structural equation systems of motion, and then solving those equations mostly by means of a modal transformation. The text contains more material than is commonly taught in one semester so advanced topics are designated by an asterisk. The final two chapters can also be deferred for later studies. The text contains numerous examples and end-of-chapter exercises.

Due to its nondestructive imaging power, scanning tunneling microscopy has found major applications in the fields of physics, chemistry, engineering, and materials science. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopy, with full coverage of the imaging mechanism, instrumentation, and sample applications. The work is the first single-author reference on STM and presents much valuable information previously available only as proceedings or collections of review articles. It contains a 32-page section of remarkable STM images, and is organized as a self-contained work, with all mathematical derivations fully detailed. As a source of background material and current data, the book will be an invaluable resource for all scientists, engineers, and technicians using the imaging abilities of STM and AFM. It may also be used as a textbook in senior-year and graduate level STM courses, and as a supplementary text in surface science, solid-state physics, materials science, microscopy, and quantum mechanics.
