Overview

This book gives a rigorous and practical treatment of integral equations and aims to tackle the solution of integral equations using a blend of abstract structural results and more direct, down-to-earth mathematics. The interplay between these two approaches is a central feature of the text, and it allows a thorough account to be given of many of the types of integral equation that arise, particularly in numerical analysis and fluid mechanics. Because it is not always possible to find explicit solutions to the problems posed, much attention is devoted to obtaining qualitative information and approximations and the associated error estimates.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...Porter and Stirling provide a precise and practical methodology for solving integral equations." Directions

"This book may be successfully used by graduate students and by any person working in the field of applied mathematics; it gives a very good treatment of all the subjects involved." A. Corduneanu, Mathematical Reviews

"...this is not a treatise but an excellent book from which to learn the subject, and therefore at least as valuable for the undergraduate library. Its level is just right for the beginning graduate student or the highly motivated senior." Choice

"...a very good book for students who want to become familiar with the basic theory of linear integral equations." Harry Hochstadt, SIAM Review

"...an excellent way to gain acquaintance with integral equations... Jet Wimp, The Mathematical Intelligencer
