Boundary Value Problems on Time Scales, Volume II (Advances in Applied Mathematics) (Hardcover)
Boundary Value Problems on Time Scales, Volume II is devoted to the qualitative theory of boundary value problems on time scales. Summarizing the
most recent contributions in this area, it addresses a wide audience of specialists such as mathematicians, physicists, engineers and biologists. It can be used as
a textbook at the graduate level and as a reference book for several disciplines. The text contains two volumes, both published by Chapman & Hall/CRC Press.
Volume I presents boundary value problems for first- and second-order dynamic equations on time scales. Volume II investigates boundary value problems for
three, four, and higher-order dynamic equations on time scales. Many results to differential equations carry over easily to corresponding results
for difference equations, while other results seem to be totally different in nature. Because of these reasons, the theory of dynamic equations is an active area of
research. The time-scale calculus can be applied to any field in which dynamic processes are described by discrete or continuous time models.
The calculus of time scales has various applications involving noncontinuous domains such as certain bug populations, phytoremediation of metals, wound
healing, maximization problems in economics, and traffic problems. Boundary value problems on time scales have been extensively investigated in simulating
processes and the phenomena subject to short-time perturbations during their evolution.
The material in this book is presented in highly readable, mathematically solid format. Many practical problems are illustrated displaying a wide variety of
