|About the Book|
The result of two decades spent developing and refining the phase-integral method to a high level of precision, the authors have applied this method to problems in various fields of theoretical physics. The problems treated are of a mathematical nature, but have important physical applications. This book will thus be of great use to research workers in various branches of theoretical physics, where the problems can be reduced to one-dimensional second-order differential equations of the Schrodinger type for which phase-integral solutions are required. Includes contributions from notable scientists who have already made use of the authorstechnique.
