The governing equations of mathematical, chemical, biological, mechanical and economical models are often nonlinear and too complex to be solved analytically. Perturbation theory provides effective tools for obtaining approximate analytical solutions to a wide variety of such nonlinear problems, which may include differential or difference equations. In this book, we aim to present the recent developments and applications of the perturbation theory for treating problems in applied mathematics, physics and engineering. The eight chapters cover a variety of topics related to perturbation methods. The book is intended to draw attention of researchers and scientist in academia and industry.
