### Wavelet Transforms: Introduction to Theory & Applications by Raghuveer M. Rao, Ajit S. Bopardikar *Written by researchers Raghuveer M. Rao and Ajit S. Bopardikar, Wavelet Transforms provides engineers, scientists, and students with a practical understanding of wavelet transforms and their properties. The authors introduce the underlying theory of the transform by presenting a wide range of applications, such as signal processing, image processing, and communications. *This book identifies problems for which wavelet transform techniques are well-suited, shows how to implement wavelet transforms efficiently, and explains how to choose or design appropriate wavelets for a given application. In Chapter 1, basic linear filtering principles are utilized to introduce the reader to continuous wavelet transform. In Chapter 2, the basics of discrete wavelet transforms and multiresolution analysis are presented. Multiresolution analysis is then further explored in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 contains alternative wavelet representations, such as biorthogonal bases, wavelet packets, and multiresolution analysis of images. Chapter 5 provides a detailed treatment of the use of wavelet transform techniques in signal and image compression.In Chapter 6, applications to areas such as denoising, object isolation, and detection are presented. Chapter 7 addresses several more advanced topics, including: choice or design of wavelets for a given application, projection relations for the continuous wavelet transform, biorthogonal bandlimited wavelets, matched wavelet construction, self-similar signals, and linear scale-invariant systems. The supporting disk contains MATLAB routines that enable the reader to experiment with various algorithms and techniques presented in the book. *Practical in their approach, Rao and Bopardikar present the material in a visual and comprehensive manner, using geometric analogies and filtering concepts. The book is written in a language familiar to readers with a basic undergraduate engineering degree.

### Special Functions (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications) by George E. Andrews, Richard Askey, Ranjan Roy Special functions, which include the trigonometric functions, have been used for centuries. Their role in the solution of differential equations was exploited by Newton and Leibniz, and the subject of special functions has been in continuous development ever since. In just the past thirty years several new special functions and applications have been discovered. This treatise presents an overview of the area of special functions, focusing primarily on the hypergeometric functions and the associated hypergeometric series. It includes both important historical results and recent developments and shows how these arise from several areas of mathematics and mathematical physics. Particular emphasis is placed on formulas that can be used in computation. The book begins with a thorough treatment of the gamma and beta functions that are essential to understanding hypergeometric functions. Later chapters discuss Bessel functions, orthogonal polynomials and transformations, the Selberg integral and its applications, spherical harmonics, q-series, partitions, and Bailey chains. This clear, authoritative work will be a lasting reference for students and researchers in number theory, algebra, combinatorics, differential equations, applied mathematics, mathematical computing, and mathematical physics.

### Introduction to solid state physics Book by Charles Kittel Since the publication of the first edition over 50 years ago, Introduction to Solid State Physics has been the standard solid state physics text for physics students. The author's goal from the beginning has been to write a book that is accessible to undergraduates and consistently teachable. The emphasis in the book has always been on physics rather than formal mathematics. With each new edition, the author has attempted to add important new developments in the field without sacrificing the book's accessibility and teachability.

A very important chapter on nano-physics has been written by an active worker in the field. This field is the liveliest addition to solid state science during the past ten years

### Fundamentals of Plasma Physics Book by Paul Murray Bellan This rigorous explanation of plasmas is relevant to diverse plasma applications such as controlled fusion, astrophysical plasmas, solar physics, magnetospheric plasmas, and plasma thrusters. More thorough than previous texts, it exploits new powerful mathematical techniques to develop deeper insights into plasma behavior. After developing the basic plasma equations from first principles, the book explores single particle motion with particular attention to adiabatic invariance. The author then examines types of plasma waves and the issue of Landau damping. Magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium and stability are tackled with emphasis on the topological concepts of magnetic helicity and self-organization. Advanced topics follow, including magnetic reconnection, nonlinear waves, and the Fokker-Planck treatment of collisions. The book concludes by discussing unconventional plasmas such as non-neutral and dusty plasmas. Written for beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates, this text emphasizes the fundamental principles that apply across many different contexts.
