A First Course in Integral Equations (Second Edition) written by Abdul Majid Wazwaz . Engineering, physics and mathematics students, both advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate, need an integral equations textbook that simply and easily introduces the material. They also need a textbook that embarks upon their already acquired knowledge of regular integral calculus and ordinary differential equations. Because of these needs, this textbook was created. From many years of teaching, I have found that the available treatments of the subject are abstract. Moreover, most of them are based on comprehensive theories such as topological methods of functional analysis, Lebesgue integrals and Green functions. Such methods of introduction are not easily accessible to those who have not yet had a background in advanced mathematical concepts. This book is especially designed for those who wish to understand integral equations without having the extensive mathematical background. In this fashion, this text leaves out abstract methods, comprehensive methods and advanced mathematical topics.
From my experience in teaching and in guiding related senior seminar projects for advanced undergraduate students, I have found that the material can indeed be taught in an accessible manner. Students have showed both a lot of motivation and capability to grasp the subject once the abstract theories and difficult theorems were omitted. In my approach to teaching integral equations, I focus on easily applicable techniques and I do not emphasize such abstract methods as existence, uniqueness, convergence and Green functions. I have translated my means of introducing and fully teaching this subject into this text so that the intended user can take full advantage of the easily presented and explained material.
