This book describes stateoftheart advances and applications of the unified transform and its relation to the boundary element method. The authors present the solution of boundary value problems from several different perspectives, in particular the type of problems modeled by partial differential equations (PDEs). They discuss recent applications of the unified transform to the analysis and numerical modeling of boundary value problems for linear and integrable nonlinear PDEs and the closely related boundary element method, a wellestablished numerical approach for solving linear elliptic PDEs.
The text is divided into three parts:
Audience
This book is intended for applied and numerical research mathematicians and scientists working on the solution of boundary value problems in physics and engineering.
