The product rule directly implies a and b. The answer is given in the text.

This integral can also be evaluated using contour integration see Exam- ple Chapter 3 Exercise Solutions 1. They are therefore in the same direction.

Probability and Statistics. Chapter 1 Introduction The seventh edition of Mathematical Methods for Physicists is a substantial and detailed revision of its predecessor.

The changes extend not only to the topics and their presentation, but also to the exercises that are an important part of the student experience. The new edition contains exercises that were not in previous editions, and there has been a wide-spread reorganization of the previously existing exercises to optimize their placement relative to the material in the text.

Since many instructors who have used previous editions of this text have favorite problems they wish to continue to use, we are providing detailed tables showing where the old problems can be found in the new edition, and conversely, where the problems in the new edition came from. We have included the full text of every problem from the sixth edition that was not used in the new seventh edition.

Many of these unused exercises are excellent but had to be left out to keep the book within its size limit. Some may be useful as test questions or additional study material.

Complete methods of solution have been provided for all the problems that are new to this seventh edition. This feature is useful to teachers who want to determine, at a glance, features of the various exercises that may not be com- pletely apparent from the problem statement. While many of the problems from the earlier editions had full solutions, some did not, and we were unfortunately not able to undertake the gargantuan task of generating full solutions to nearly problems.

The authors invite users of the text to call attention to errors or ambiguities, and it is intended that corrections be listed in the chapter of this Manual entitled Errata and Revision Status. Errata and comments may be directed to the au- thors at harris at qtp. If users choose to forward additional materials that are of general use to instructors who are teaching from the text, they will be considered for inclusion when this Manual is updated.

We particularly want to acknowledge the assis- tance of our Editorial Project Manager, Kathryn Morrissey, whose attention to this project has been extremely valuable and is much appreciated. Chapter 2 Errata and Revision Status Last changed: Page Figure Page Exercise The answer is then correct. Page Eq. Page After Eq. Consistency with the duplication formula then determines C2. The text assumes it to be kr. The right-hand side of the second equation should read: The right-hand side of the third equation should read: Disregard it.

Page Table The column of references should, in its entirety, read: Corrections and Additions to Exercise Solutions None as of now. Chapter 3 Exercise Solutions 1. Mathematical Preliminaries 1. This expression approaches 1 in the limit of large n. The solution is given in the text. Let sn be the absolute value of the nth term of the series. Therefore this series converges. Because the sn are larger than corre- sponding terms of the harmonic series, this series is not absolutely con- vergent.

With all signs positive, this series is the harmonic series, so it is not aboslutely convergent. We therefore see that the terms of the new series are decreasing, with limit zero, so the original series converges. With all signs positive, the original series becomes the harmonic series, and is therefore not absolutely convergent. The solutions are given in the text. The upper limit x does not have to be small, but unless it is small the convergence will be slow and the expansion relatively useless.

The integrated terms vanish, and the new integral is the negative of that already treated in part a. Use mathematical induction. Thus, we want to see if we can simplify 1 p! The formula for un p follows directly by inserting the partial fraction decomposition. After inserting Eq. Using now Eq. Insertion of this expression leads to the recovery of Eq. Applying Eq. Using these in Eq. P and Q are antiparallel; R is perpendicular to both P and Q. Now take real and imaginary parts to get the result.

All other identities are shown similarly. Separating this into real and imaginary parts for real z1, z2 proves the addition theorems for real arguments. Analytic continuation extends them to the complex plane.

The nth term of the x expansion will be xn n! Apply an integration by parts to the integral in Table 1. This integral can also be evaluated using contour integration see Exam- ple The series in parentheses is that discussed in Exercise 1.

Integrate by parts, to raise the power of x in the integrand: Note that the integrated terms vanish. The integral can now be recognized see Table 1.

Write erf as an integral and interchange the order of integration. Write E1 as an integral and interchange the order of integration. Now the outer u integration must be broken into two pieces: Related Interests Publishing Technology. Josh Brewer. Gibum Kim.
