Chapter

Abstract

This chapter summarizes many of the mathematical functions and techniques required to analyze relaxation phenomena quantitatively. Elementary mathematical results are given in Appendix B, and additional specialized results are presented in Chaps.  2,  3 and  5. Elementary statistics is briefly summarized in Chap.  4.
