Symmetry and Separation of Variables
by

Publisher: Addison-Wesley
ISBN/ASIN: 0521177391
Number of pages: 318

Description:
Originally published in 1977, this volume is concerned with the relationship between symmetries of a linear second-order partial differential equation of mathematical physics, the coordinate systems in which the equation admits solutions via separation of variables, and the properties of the special functions that arise in this manner.
