Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


Applications in binomial expansion, scalar products, economics, the Cobb-Douglas production function and quasilinearity, interest formulas, physics, Gaussian functions, Chebyshev polynomials, determinants, geometry, statistics, information theory, and sums of powers are considered in this chapter. Functional equations is a growing and fascinating part of mathematics because of its intrinsic mathematical beauty as well as its applications. Applications of functional equations abound in mathematics and elsewhere in diverse fields. This chapter is devoted to applications of functional equations in various fields. Applications have contributed to the growth and development of functional equations.
