about this item

Neu explores singular perturbation in the physical sciences using a main text of basic material and a subtext of worked problems that go deeper and present engaging examples. The mathematical models of phenomena with widely separated scales are often singularly perturbed, he says, meaning that the solution of the equations do not converge uniformly as the ratio of scales becomes large or small. He covers what a singular perturbation is, asymptotic expansions, matched asymptotic expansions, matched asymptotic expansions in partial differential equations, Prandtl boundary layer theory, modulated oscillations, modulation theory by transforming variables, and nonlinear resonance.
