Mathematical concepts and theories underpin engineering and many of the physical sciences. Yet many engineering and science students find math challenging and even intimidating.

The fourth edition of Mathematical Techniques provides a complete course in mathematics, covering all the essential topics with which a physical sciences or engineering student should be familiar.

By breaking the subject into small, modular chapters, the book introduces and builds on concepts in a progressive, carefully-layered way - always with an emphasis on using math to the best effect, rather than relying on theoretical proofs.

With a huge array of end of chapter problems and new self-check questions, the fourth edition of Mathematical Techniques provides extensive opportunities for students to exercise and enhance their mathematical knowledge and skills.

Distinctive Features
- Over 500 worked out examples offer the reader valuable guidance when tackling problems.
- Self-check questions and over 2,000 end of chapter problems provide extensive opportunities for students to actively master the concepts presented.
- A series of projects at the end of the book encourage students to use mathematical software to further their understanding.
- An Online Resource Centre features additional resources for lecturers and students, including figures from the book in electronic format, ready to download; a downloadable solutions manual featuring worked solutions to all end of chapter problems (password protected); and mathematical-based programs relating to the projects featured at the end of the book .

Review:

`Review from previous edition This textbook offers an accessible and comprehensive grounding in many of the mathematical techniques required in the early stages of an engineering or science degree and also for the routine methods needed by first and second year mathematics students.'
Engineering Designer March/April 2003

`There are also significant changes in content in the opening chapter, where the foundation material has been expanded usefully. The authors do not attempt to dodge theoretical hurdles. They are careful to explain many of the less intuitive properties of functions and to highlight
generalisations without becoming over abstract.'
Times Higher Education Supplement, November 2002

`Thoroughly recommended.'
Zentralblatt MATH, 993:2002
