Morten Willatzen is Head of Research at the Center for Product Innovation of the Mads Clausen Institute at the University of Southern Denmark. Having received his PhD from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, he held positions at Aarhus University, Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research, Germany, and Senior Scientist at Danfoss A/S, DK. In 2000 he became Associate Professor, in 2004 Full Professor at the University of Southern Denmark. Morten Willatzen's research interests include solid state physics, in particular quantum-confined structures and applications to semiconductor laser amplifiers, flow acoustics, and modelling of thermo-fluid systems. L. C. Lew Yan Voon is Professor and Chair of the Department of Physics at Wright State University. Educated in Cambridge, England, and Vancouver, Canada, he received his PhD from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, USA, where he held positions until 2004, with a stay at the Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow. Dr. Lew Yan Voon was visiting scientist at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Stanford University, and the University of Southern Denmark. Professor Lew Yan Voon received the Balslev Award (Denmark) and the NSF CAREER award. His research interests are in semiconductor theory and mathematical physics and involve the study of band structure theory and applications to nanostructures.


"They also consider a range of special functions that can result, though they make clear this is not a text on special functions. The fundamental material is suitable for a one-semester course in partial differential equations at the graduate or senior level; the rest of the material can be used as self-study or more advanced courses." ( Book News , 1 April 2012) "The text is clear and direct with respect to the mathematics and physics presented. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers/faculty." (Choice, 1 December 2011)
