9780521555067: Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering: A Comprehensive Guide

All physical scientists and engineers need mathematical tools in their everyday work. This book presents mathematics in a form appropriate for undergraduate courses. The material covered is comprehensive, and takes the student from the level of starting college or university to the end of the most mathematical of science courses. It also provides a valuable reference for advanced students and active researchers in physics, engineering, chemistry, applied mathematics and earth science. Throughout the text, the physical relevance of the mathematics is constantly reinforced, and numerous physical worked examples are included. In this way, it provides scientists who need to use the tools of mathematics for practical purposes with a single, comprehensive textbook. Students will find the book friendly and approachable, and graduate students and researchers will find it an invaluable reference.

Review:

'... the book provides scientists who need to use the tool of mathematics for practical purposes with a single, comprehensive book. I recommend this book not only to students in physics and engineering sciences, but also to students in other fields of natural sciences.' P. Steward, Optik

'... suitable as a textbook for undergraduate use ... this is a book that in view of its content and its modest softcover price, will find its way on to many bookshelves.' Nigel Steele, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'Riley et al. has clear, thorough and straightforward explanations of the subjects treated. It rigorously adopts a three-stage approach throughout the book: first a heuristic, intuitive introduction, then a formal treatment, and finally one or two examples. This consistent presentation, the layout, and the print quality make the book most attractive ... clearness of presentation, comprehensiveness and value for money. It contains a thousand pages, there are plenty of excercises with each chapter, and ... the layout and print quality are very good.' J. M. Thijssen, European Journal of Physics

This is a valuable book with great potential use in present-day university physics courses. Furthermore, the book will be useful for graduate too, and researchers will find it useful for looking up material which they have forgotten since their undergraduate days.' J. M. Thijssen, European Journal of Physics
