Rahman (applied mathematics and fluid mechanics fluid mechanics, branch of mechanics dealing with the properties and behavior of fluids, i.e., liquids and gases. Because of their ability to flow, liquids and gases have many properties in common not shared by solids. , Dalhousie U.) offers senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students of engineering and science courses (as well as of mathematics and physical sciences) recent developments, including preliminary backgrounds of formulations of integral equations governing physical situations and elegant analytical and numerical methods. He covers Volterra integral equations In mathematics, the Volterra integral equations are a special type of integral equations. They are divided into two groups referred to as the first and the second kind.

A Volterra equation of the first kind is

, Fredholm integral equations In mathematics, the Fredholm integral equation is an integral equation whose solution gives rise to Fredholm theory, the study of Fredholm kernels and Fredholm operators. The integral equation was studied by Ivar Fredholm. , nonlinear integral equations, the singular integral equation, integro-differential equations, symmetric kernals and orthogonal At right angles. The term is used to describe electronic signals that appear at 90 degree angles to each other. It is also widely used to describe conditions that are contradictory, or opposite, rather than in parallel or in sync with each other.  systems of functions, and a range of applications. He includes appendices including a table of Laplace transforms and specialized Laplace inverses. The US office of WIT Press is Computational Mechanics Computational mechanics is the subject/profession concerned with the use of computational methods and devices to study phenomena governed by the principles of mechanics. Before the emergence of computational science (also called scientific computing) as a "third way" besides .
