Book Description: First published in 1893, Byerly's classic treatise on Fourier's series and spherical, cylindrical, and ellipsoidal harmonics has been used in classrooms for well over a century. This practical exposition acts as a primer for fields such as wave mechanics, advanced engineering, and mathematical physics. Topics covered include: . development in trigonometric series . convergence on Fourier's series . solution of problems in physics by the aid of Fourier's integrals and Fourier's series . zonal harmonics . spherical harmonics . cylindrical harmonics (Bessel's functions) . and more. Containing 190 exercises and a helpful appendix, this reissue of Fourier's Series will be welcomed by students of higher mathematics everywhere. American mathematician WILLIAM ELWOOD BYERLY (1849-1935) also wrote Elements of Differential Calculus (1879) and Elements of Integral Calculus (1881).
