Derivations of Applied Mathematics

This is a book of applied mathematical proofs. If you have seen a mathematical result, if you want to know why the result is so, you can look for the proof here. The book's purpose is to convey the essential ideas underlying the derivations of a large number of mathematical results useful in the modeling of physical systems. To this end, the book emphasizes main threads of mathematical argument and the motivation underlying the main threads, deemphasizing formal mathematical rigor. It derives mathematical results from the purely applied perspective of the scientist and the engineer. This book defines applied mathematics to be correct mathematics useful to scientists, engineers and the like; proceeding not from reduced, well defined sets of axioms but rather directly from a nebulous mass of natural arithmetical, geometrical and classical-algebraic idealizations of physical systems; demonstrable but generally lacking the detailed rigor of the professional mathematician.

This volume is the second of a three part series of texts taken during a first-year university course. Tutorial questions with fully worked solutions structured on a weekly basis to help the students to self-pace themselves are used.

The text focuses on use of spectral methods to solve boundary value, eigenvalue, and time-dependent problems, but also covers Hermite, Laguerre, rational Chebyshev, sinc, and spherical harmonic functions, cardinal functions, etc.

The course in this book is much more advanced than the usual course in commercial arithmetic. The attempt has been made to construct a practical course which will contain all the essential mathematical knowledge required in a business career.

The purpose of this paper is to show through particular examples how group theory is used in music. Examples are chosen from the theoretical work and from the compositions of Olivier Messiaen, one of the most influential twentieth century composers.
