Excellent book !,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Asymptotic Expansions of Integrals (Dover Books on Mathematics) (Taschenbuch)
Asymptotic expansion of Integrals, a very applied technique, is fundamental to my area of research: computational electromagnetics (CEM). I have read the review by one of the anonymous reviewer, and do agree fully with him/her. Professors Bleistien and Handelsman have done a remarkable job in exposing the asymptotic theory, as one of the parameters (in the exponent of the integrand) becomes large. This technique is fundamental to our understanding of "high-frequency" phenomena and in particular diffraction phenomena. Without repeating the contents of the preceding review, I must reiterate that a reasonably good knowledge in the theory of fundtions of a complex variable is essential for benefiting from this book.
The book is presents a rigorous theory of a very useful and applied mathematical technique for electrical engineering (radars, em scattering, antenna theory) and is a must for those wishing to do some serious yet useful research in CEM. Very typically, the Green's functions for a e.m. b.v.p (boundary value problem), can be approximated by such techniques, which results in substantial savings of computer resources at higher frequencies.
(It is one of the most useful books in my personal library.)
