Summary

The third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences. As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics and many worked examples, it contains over 800 exercises. New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the 'special functions' of physical science, cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators. Further tabulations, of relevance in statistics and numerical integration, have been added.

  • Contains all the mathematical material likely to be needed for any undergraduate course in the physical sciences
  • Maintains the method and clarity of presentation that has been much praised in earlier editions
  • Over 800 exercises: half with complete solutions available; half suitable for unaided homework - the only book at this level to have fully-worked solutions to ALL of its problems
