**Publisher**: Academic Press 1968**ISBN/ASIN**: 0124974503**ISBN-13**: 9780124974500**Number of pages**: 338

**Description**:

This monograph is the result of an attempt to understand the role played by special function theory in the formalism of mathematical physics. It demonstrates explicitly that special functions which arise in the study of mathematical models of physical phenomena are in many cases dictated by symmetry groups admitted by the models.
