The only elementary text to provide a complete introduction to diffusion theory and the various analytical and numerical methods of solution. Presents an integrated set of real-life problems taken mainly from metallurgy and device processing, and offers an overview of the solution of diffusion problems in practical cases, with clear explanations of the interrelationships between mathematical solutions, and the underlying physics and chemistry. Covers oxidation theory, error functions, Laplace transforms, and similarity, a topic of current research interest. Also covers Green's functions and integral equations, rarely discussed in introductory texts.
