PREFACE

This book is intended to cover manytopics in mathematicsat a level moreadvancedthan a junior level course in differential equations. The bookevolved from a set of notes for a three-semester course in the application of mathematical methods to scientific and engineering problems. The courses attract graduate students majoring in engineering mechanics, engineering science, mechanical, petroleum, electrical, nuclear, civil and aeronautical engineering, as well as physics, meteorology,geologyand geophysics. The book assumes knowledge of differential and integral calculus and an introductory level of ordinary differential equations. Thus, the book is intended for advanced senior and graduate students. Each chapter of the text contains manysolved examples and manyproblems with answers. Those chapters which cover boundary value problems and partial differential equations also include derivation of the governing differential equations in manyfields of applied physics and engineering such as wave mechanics,acoustics, heat flow in solids, diffusion of liquids and gasses and fluid flow. Chapter 1 briefly reviews methods of integration of ordinary differential equations. Chapter 2 covers series solutions of ordinary differential equations. This is followed by methodsof solution of singular differential equations. Chapter 3 covers Bessel functions and Legendrefunctions in detail, including recurrence relations, series expansion,integrals, integral representations and generating functions. Chapter 4 covers the derivation and methodsof solution of linear boundaryvalue problemsfor physical systems in one spatial dimensiongovernedby ordinary differential equations. The concepts of eigenfunctions, orthogonality and eigenfunction expansions are introduced, followed by an extensive treatment of adjoint and self-adjoint systems. This is followed by coverage of the Sturm-Liouville system for second and fourth order ordinary differential equations. The chapter concludes with methodsof solution of nonhomogeneous boundary value problems. Chapter 5 covers complex variables, calculus, and integrals. The methodof residues is fully applied to proper and improper integrals, followed by integration of multi-valued functions. Examplesare drawn from Fourier sine, cosine and exponential transforms as well as the Laplace transform. Chapter 6 covers linear partial differential equations in classical physics and engineering. The chapter covers derivation of the governingpartial differential equations for waveequations in acoustics, membranes, plates and beams;strength of materials; heat flow in solids and diffusion of gasses; temperature distribution in solids and flow of incompressible ideal fluids. Theseequations are then shownto obey partial differential equations of the type: Laplace, Poisson, Helmholtz, wave and diffusion equations. Uniquenesstheorems for these equations are then developed. Solutions by eigenfunction expansions are explored fully. These are followed by special methods for nonhomogeneous partial differential equations with temporaland spatial source fields. Chapter 7 covers the derivation of integral transforms such as Fourier complex, sine and cosine, Generalized Fourier, Laplace and Hankel transforms. The calculus of each of these transforms is then presented together with special methodsfor inverse transformations. Each transform also includes applications to solutions of partial differential equations for engineeringand physical systems.

Chapter 8 covers Green’s functions for ordinary and partial diffi~rential equations. The Green’s functions for adjoint and self-adjoint systems of ordinary differential equations are then presented by use of generalized functions or by construction. These methodsare applied to physical examplesin the samefields c, overed in Chapter 6. These are then followed by derivation of fundamental sohitions for the Laplace, Helmholtz, wave and diffusion equations in one-, two-, and three-dimensional space. Finally, the Green’s functions for boundedand semi-infinite media such as half and quarter spaces, in cartesian, cylindrical and spherical geometryare developedby the methodof images with examplesin physical systems. Chapter 9 covers asymptoticmethodsaimed at the evaluation of integrals as well as the asymptotic solution of ordinary differential equations. This chapter covers asymptotic series and convergence.This is then followed by asymptotic series evaluation of definite and improper integrals. These include the stationary phase method, the steepest descent method, the modified saddle point method, methodof the subtraction of poles and Ott’s and Jones’ methods. The chapter then covers asymptotic solutions of ordinary differential equations, formal solutions, normal and sub-normalsolutions and the WKBJmethod. There are four appendices in the book. AppendixA covers infinite series and convergence criteria. AppendixB presents a compendium special functions such as of Beta, Gamma, Zeta, Laguerre, Hermite, Hypergeometric, Chebychevand Fresnel. These include differential equations, series solutions, integrals, recurrence formulaeand integral representations. Appendix C presents a compendiumof formulae for spherical, cylindrical, ellipsoidal, oblate and prolate spheroidal coordinate systems such as the divergence, gradient, Laplacian and scalar and vector wave operators. Appendix D covers calculus of generalized functions such as the Dirac delta functions in ndimensional space of zero and higher ranks. Appendix E presents plots of special functions. The aim of this book is to present methods of applied mathematics that are particularly suited for the application of mathematicsto physical problemsin science and engineering, with numerous examples that illustrate the methods of solution being explored. The problemshave answers listed at the end of the book. The book is used in a three-semester course sequence. The author reconamends Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4 and AppendixA in the first course, with emphasis on ordinary differential equations. The second semester would include Chapters 5, 6, and 7 with emphasison partial differential equations. The third course would include AppendixD, and Chapters 8 and 9.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This book evolved from course notes written in the early 1970s for a two-semestercourse at Penn State University. It was completely revampedand retyped in the mid-1980s. The course notes were rewritten in the format of a manuscriptfor a bookfor the last two years. I wouldlike to acknowledgethe manypeople whohad profound influence on me over the last 40 years. I am indebted to myformer teachers who instilled inme the love of applied mathematics. In particular, I would like to mention Professors MortonFriedman, Melvin Barron, RaymondMindlin, Mario Salvadori, and Frank DiMaggio, all of Columbia University’s Department of Engineering Mechanics. I am also indebted to the many

Numbers

A complexnumber can be defined as an ordered pair of real numbers and y: z x z = (x,y) The complexnumber(1,0) is a real number= 1. The complexnumber(0,1) = i, is imaginary number.The components z are: the real part Re (z) = x and the of imaginary part lm (z) = y. Thus, the numberz can be expressed, conveniently follows: z=x+iy The numberz = 0 iff x = 0 and y = 0. Newoperational rules and laws must be specified for the new numbersystem. Let the complexnumbersa, b, c be defined by their components a2), (b~, b:) and (cl, c2), respectively. (a~, Equality: a =biffa~ = a2 andb~ =b~ Thusit can be written in complex notation as follows: a=a~+ia 2=b=b~+ib2 Addition: c=a+b=(a~+b~,a~+b2) iff a~=b~ and a 2=b2

Functions

Onemust develop the calculus of complex variables in a treatment that parallels the calculus of real variables. Thus, one must define a neighborhood a point, regions, of functions, limits, continuity, derivatives and integrals. In each case, the corresponding treatmentof real variables will be presentedto give a clearer picture of the ideas being presented. 5.2.1 Neighborhood of a Point

In real variables, the neighborhood a point x = a represents all the points inside of the segmentof the real axis a - e < x < a + e, with e > 0, as shown the shadedsection in in Fig. 5.3a. This can be written in morecompactform as ~ - a I< e. In complex variables, all the points inside a circle of radius e centeredat z = a, but not including points on the circle, make the neighborhood z = a, i.e.: up of ]z - a[ < e This is shown the shaded area in Figure 5.3b. as 5.2.2 Region

Aclosed region in real variables contains all interior ~as well as boundarypoints, e.g., the closed region:

Ix-l[_<X

contains all points 0 < x < 2, see Fig. 5.4a. The closed region in the complex plane contains all interior points as well as the boundary points, e.g., the closed region:

the following regions are open: Ix-ll< 1 as well as: l<[z-l-i[<2 A region is called a semi-closedregion if it includes all the interior points as well as points on part of the boundary.3 Functions of a Complex Variable or 0 <x<2 A function of a real variable y = fix) mapseach point x in the region of definition of x on the real x-axis onto one or morecorrespondingpoint(s) in another region definition of y on the real y-axis. the function: 1 y = f(x) = -~0 < IxI < 1 .. 5.g.called multiply-connected. in An Open Regionis one that includes all the interior points. the region outside a circle is multiply-connected.g. respectively.CHAPTER 5 Imaginary Axis Y 190 X 0 1 2 Real Axis (a) (b) Fig. e. as well as all the points on the outer and inner circles.2.The order of the multiply-connectivenessof a region can be defined by the number independentclosed contours that cannot be of collapsed to zero plus one.: 1<Iz -1-iI _< 2 A simply connected region R is one where every closed contour within it encloses only points belongingto R. 5.e. 5.

Lim f(z) = z~z 0 This meansthat if there exists a positive small number such that: ~ [z - z0[ < e then

Iw-A < ~ for a small positive number~ I

The limit of the function is unique. Let A and B be the limits of f(z) and g(z) respectively as z 0, then : Lim If(z) + g(z)] = A z--~z 0 Lim [f(z) g(z)] z~z 0 Lim f(z) A z -~ z 0 g(z) provided that B ~ 0

Since the limit is unique, then the limit of a function as z approachesz0 by any path C must be unique. If a function possesses morethan one limit as z --~ z0, whenthe limiting processis performed along different paths, then the function has no limit as z --~ z0. Example 5.1 Find the limit of the followingfunction as z --~ 0: 2 xy fl(z) = 2 +y4 Let y = mxbe the path C along whicha limit of the function f~(z) as z --~ 0 is to obtained: 3 m2x ~0 Lim f~(z)= Lim z-~0 x ---~ 0 +m2x4 2, independentof the value of m. This is not conclusive because, on the curve x = my the 2 + 1), which dependson mfor its limit. Thus, if limit of f(z) as z ~ 0 on C is m/(m f~(z) has many limits, then f~(z) has no limit as z --~ 5.2.5 Continuity

A function is continuousat a point z = z0, if f(Zo) exists, and Limf(z) exists, z-~z 0 if Lim f(z) = f(zo). A complexfunction f(z) is continuous at z = Zo iff, both z~z 0 and v(x,y) are continuousfunctions at z = o.

Derivatives

Let z be a point in the neighborhood a point z0, then one defines Az as: of Az a complex number o =z- z Thederivative of a function f(z) is definedas follows: f’(Zo)=~zZ) = Lim f(zo+Az)-f(zo)= [ z=z 0 Az--~0 Az Lim f(z)-f(z°) z--~z o z-z 0 (5.3)

Thus, the derivative is definedonly if the limit exists, which indicates that the derivative must be unique. If a function possesses morethan one derivative at a point z = z0 dependingon the path along whicha limit was taken, then it has no derivative at the point z = z 0. Example 5.2

Thus, the real part u(x, y) is given by: U =~(X2 -y2)+C SOthat the functionf(z) is: f(z) = ~(x2 - yZ)+c +ixy = ~ z2 5.2.8 Analytic Functions

Afunction f(z) is analytic at a point o i f i ts derivative f ’(z) e xists and i continuousat Zo and at every point in the neighborhood zo. Anentire function is one of that is analytic at every point in the entire complex plane. If the function is analytic z everywhere the neighborhood a point zo but not a z = z0, then z = Zo is called an in of isolated singularity of f(z). Example 5.5 (i) The function:

f(z): °

n=0, 1,2 ....

is an analytic function since f’(z) = n-~ exists an d is con tinuous eve rywhere. It is also an entire function. (ii) The function: 1 f(z) = (z - 2 is analytic everywhere, exceptat z0 = 1, since f’(z) = - 2/(z - 3 do not exist at es zo = 1. Thepoint z0 = 1 is an isolated singularity of the function f(z). 5.2.9 Multi-Valued Functions, Branch Cuts and Branch Points

Somecomplexfunctions can be multivalued in the complexz-plane and hence, are not analytic over someregion. In order to makethese functions single-valued, one can define the range of points z in the z-plane in a waythat the function is single-valuedfor those points. For example,the function zl/2 is multivaluedsince: w= z1/2 = [l’ei(°:t2nn) ]1/2 = 1"~/2i(°-+2nn)/2 Therefore,for n = 0: zI/2 = r 1/2 eiO/2 and for n = 1: z1/2 = r 1/2 ei(0+2n)/2 r>0,0<0 < 27z

For n = 2, 3 ..... the value of w is equal to those for n = 0 and n = 1. Thus, there are twodistinct values of the function w = z1/2 for every point z in the z-plane. Instead of letting w have two values on the z-plane, one can create two planes wherew is singlevalued in each. This can be done by defining in one plane:

Z1/2 = r 1/2 ei0/2

r>0,0<0

<2rt

and in a secondplane:

Z1/2 = r 1/2 ei0/2

r>0,

Thus, the function w is single valued in each plane. It should be noted that 0 is limited to one range in each plane. This can be achieved by makinga cut of the 0/2n ray from the origin r = 0 to ~ in such a waythat 0 cannot exceed2rt or be less than zero in the first plane, The samecut from the origin r = 0 to ~ is madein the other plane at 2~47r ray so that 0 cannot exceed4rt or be less than 2~t, see Fig. 5.7(a). Eachof these planes called a RiemannSheet. The cut is called a Branch cut. The origin point where the.

Since the function w is continuousat 0 = 27z in both she.ets and is continuousat 0 = 0 and 4~t, one can envision joining these two Riemann sheets at the 2rt and at 0/4~ rays. For the function w = (z - 1 - i) 1/2, one mustfirst express it in cylindrical coordinates in order to calculate the function. Let the origin of the z-plane be at (0,0), such that: i0 z =r e Let the origin of the coordinate systemfor the function w be (1,1), such that:

To makethe function w single-valued, one needs to cut the plane from the branclh point at (l+i) with 13 = 0 to oo at ¢ = 0/2~ and = 2n/4rt, se e Fig. 5. 7(b). This re sults in two Riemann sheets defined by: w= (z - 1 - i) 1/2 = 01/2ei¢/2 0<0<2x :TopSheet 2n < 0 < 4rt : BottomSheet one can see that 9 and 0 are related to r and 0. The branch cut does not have to be aligned with the positive x-axis. For the above function, one can define a branchcut along a ray, cz, such that the function is defined by: w= (z - 1 - 01/2 = 91/2 ei¢/2 c~ < 0 < ot + 2n : Top Sheet cz + 2rt < 0 < c~ + 4n : Bottom Sheet so that the choice of ~z = n/2 results in a vertically aligned branch cut. The choice of + 2n dependson ~z, in such a wayso that the top sheet should include 0 = 0 in its range. Branchcuts do not even have to be straight lines, but could be curved, as long as they start from the branchpoint and end at z --> oo, see Fig. 5.8(a) for examples. Sometimes,a function mayhave two or more componentsthat are multi-valued. For example,the function w = (z2 -1) 1/2 can be written as w = (z-1)l/2(z+l) 1/2 which contains two multivalued functions w = (z-l) 1/2 and w = (z+l) 1/2. Both functions 1 e require branch cuts to makethemsingle valued. Let: Wl= ( z- 1)1/2 = 13~/2ei0o’/2 ~1 < 01 < (~1 - 2n ~1 + 2~ < 01 < ~1 + 4g W = (Z + 1)1/2 = p~/2ei¢2/2 2

with branch points for w and w at z = -1 and +1, respectively. Againthe choice of 1 2 + 2rt is made order to insure that 0 = 0 is included in the range of the top sheet. Thus: in w = WlW= (01132)1/2el(el +¢=)/2 2 where01 and 02 could take any of the angles given above, i.e. four possible Riemann sheets. Thus, one can choose, see Fig. 5.8(b): 0 < 01 < 2~, -rt/2 < 02 < 3rt/2 : Sheet 1 0 < 01 < 2g, 3~z/2 < 02 < 7rt/2 2rt < 01 < 4~z, -r~/2 < 02 < 3rc/2 : Sheet 2 : Sheet 3

It shouldbe notedthat 13 ~1, 02 and 02 are related to r, 0. l, In many instances, it maybe advantageousto makethe branch cuts colinear. In those cases, the function maybecome single valued along the portion that is common to those branchcuts. For example,the choice of (21 = (22 = 0 or (21 = (22 = -~Z for both branch cuts mayworkbetter than in Fig. 5.8b (see Fig. 5.8(c)). For a point slightly abovethe two branchcuts, 01 = d~2-= 0 so that: 1/2 w = WlW= (131132) 2 For a point slightly belowthe two branch cuts, 01 = i(2~+2~)12 (131102) 1/2 w = WlW= (13192)112e = 2 Thusthe function w is continuous across both branch cuts over the segmentfrom z = 1 to ~,.

wherethe choice of + 2~ is madein order to include the angle 0 = 0 in the Principal Riemann sheet. The function log z as defined by (5.19) is thus single-valued. The function log z is not continuousalong the rays defined by 0 = ~ and 0 = c~ + 2n, because the function jumpsby a value equal to 2hi when0 crosses these rays. Since the function is not single-valued on 0 = ~ and 0 = ~ _+ 2~, the logarithmic function has no derivative on the branch cut defined by the ray 0 = c~, as well as at the branch point z0 = 0. Hence, all the points on the ray 0 = (~ are non-isolated singular points. A few other formulaefor the complexfunction are listed below:

2. The series is uniformlyconvergentinside its circle of convergence. 3. The series maybe differentiated or integrated term by term. 4. There is only one Taylor series that represents an analytic function f(z) about point z o. 5. Since the function is annlytic at zo, then the circle of convergence a radius has that extends fromthe center at Zoto the nearest singularity.

As a consequence Taylor’s expansiontheorem, one can showthat if f(z) and g(z) of are twoanalytic functions inside a circle C, centeredat Zoand if f(z) = g(z) along segmentpassing through zo, then f(z) = g(z) everywhereinside C. This can be shown expandingboth functions in a Taylor’s series about zo as follows (see Fig. 5.16): n f(z)= ~’ ~ an(Z-Zo)

At z = zo, f(Zo) = g(zo), thus o =bo. Th derivatives off(z) andg(z)at ze , c an be ta e as a limiting process along C1. Thus: f’(Zo) = g’(Zo) 1 whichmeansthat al = bl, etc. Thus, one can showthat an = bn, n = 0, 1, 2 ..... and f(z) = g(z) everywhere in Theidentity theoremcan be used to extend Taylor series representations in real variables to those in complex variables. If a real function is analytic in a segment the on real axis, then one can showthat the extension to the complex plane of the equivalent complex function is analytic inside a certain region. Thus, all the Taylor series expansions of functions on the real axis can be extendedto the complexplane. Example 5.10 (i) The function:

oo xn

n=O is analytic everywhere the real axis. Onecan extend the function into the complex on plane whereez is equal to ex on the entire x-axis. Since the function ez and e× are equal on the entire x-axis, then they must be equal in the entire z-plane. Hence,the Taylor series representation of the complex function eZ:

ez =

n=O is analytic in the entire complex plane. (ii) The function: 1_ 1-x E xn

n=O is analytic on the segment the real axis, Ixl < 1, then the extended of function (1 - z)-1 has an expansion ~ zn which is analytic in the region Izl < 1. n=O

5.9 Laurent’s

Series

If a function is analytic on two concentric circles CI and C2 centered at Zoand in the interior region betweenthem, then there is an infinite series expansionwith positive and negative powersof z - zo about z = Zo (see Fig. 5.17), representing this function in this region called the Laurent’s series. Thus, the Laurent’s series can be written as:

For convergence the series (A.8) either the Ratio Test or the Root Test can of employed. The Ratio Test gives: Lim .an+l (x- ~)M. = Ix- xolM Lim an~l < 1 the series an(X- Xo) n’->~l an I converges

In other words,the series convergesin the region: xo - 13 < x < xo + O and divergesoutside this region. The Root Test gives: "i "~ a n (x- nM Xo) 1/nM Xo[Limlan[ = Ix < 1 the series converges > 1 the series diverges Thus, if one lets: (A.11) then the series converges the region indicated in (A.10). in TheRatio Test or the Root Test fails at the end points, i.e., when ]X-Xo[= 0, where both tests give a limit of unity. In such cases, Raabe’sTest or the Alternating Series Test (if appropriate) can be used on the series after substituting for the end points at x xo +13 or x = xo- 13. Example A.9 Find the regions of convergence the following powerseries: of

for xo - 19 < x < xo + 19. Theradius of convergence the resulting series for f’(x) is the of same that of the series for f(x). Thisholds for all derivativesof the series f(x)(n), as n>l. 3. The series can be integrated term by term such that: x2 ~o x2 oo f f(x)dx= Z an (x-X°)ndx= ~n- -~’~ (x- 0 x )n+l x2
