Many students beginning their engineering, science and mathematics courses need a book on mathematical methods. 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. Mathematical Techniques starts by revising work from pre-university level before developing the more advanced material whichstudents will encounter during their undergraduate studies. The contents of the book has been fully revised for this, the third edition. The first chapter on standard techniques, has been rewritten and expanded to serve the increasingly diverse needs of students. The Fourier transform now has its own chapter; a simplified approach is adopted, and diffraction theory, together with supporting material on wave motion, is included. Many changes enhancing clarity have been made in other chapters. The chapter on projects using Mathematica has been extended to cover these changes: the associated programs are freely available on Keele University, Mathematics Department web site: . Chapters and sections are designed to be largely self-contained, allowing students ot concentrate on the specific methods they need to master and use. The book contains nearly 500 worked examples, more than 2000 problems (with selected answers), and over 120 computing projects. The text isaccessible, widely illustrated, and stands as an ideal introduction on mathematical methods at university level.

All students of engineering, science, and mathematics take courses on mathematical techniques or `methods', and large numbers of these students are insecure in their mathematical grounding. This book offers a course in mathematical methods for students in the first stages of a science or engineering degree. Its particular intention is to cover the range of topics typically required, while providing for students whose mathematical background is minimal. The topics covered are: * Analytic geometry, vector algebra, vector fields (div and curl), differentiation, and integration. * Complex numbers, matrix operations, and linear systems of equations. * Differential equations and first-order linear systems, functions of more than one variable, double integrals, and line integrals. * Laplace transforms and Fourier series and Fourier transforms. * Probability and statistics. The earlier part of this list consists largely of what is thought pre-university material. However, many science students have not studied mathematics to this level, and among those that have the content is frequently only patchily understood. Mathematical Techniques begins at an elementary level but proceeds to give more advanced material with a minimum of manipulative complication. Most of the concepts can be explained using quite simple examples, and to aid understanding a large number of fully worked examples is included. As far as is possible chapter topics are dealt with in a self-contained way so that a student only needing to master certain techniques can omit others without trouble. The widely illustrated text also includes simple numerical processes which lead to examples and projects for computation, and a large number of exercises (with answers) is included to reinforce understanding.

What sets this volume apart from other mathematics texts is its emphasis on mathematical tools commonly used by scientists and engineers to solve real-world problems. Using a unique approach, it covers intermediate and advanced material in a manner appropriate for undergraduate students. Based on author Bruce Kusse's course at the Department of Applied and Engineering Physics at Cornell University, Mathematical Physics begins with essentials such as vector and tensor algebra, curvilinear coordinate systems, complex variables, Fourier series, Fourier and Laplace transforms, differential and integral equations, and solutions to Laplace's equations. The book moves on to explain complex topics that often fall through the cracks in undergraduate programs, including the Dirac delta-function, multivalued complex functions using branch cuts, branch points and Riemann sheets, contravariant and covariant tensors, and an introduction to group theory. This expanded second edition contains a new appendix on the calculus of variation -- a valuable addition to the already superb collection of topics on offer.

Describing many of the most important aspects of Lie group theory, this book presents the subject in a 'hands on' way. Rather than concentrating on theorems and proofs, the book shows the applications of the material to physical sciences and applied mathematics. Many examples of Lie groups and Lie algebras are given throughout the text. The relation between Lie group theory and algorithms for solving ordinary differential equations is presented and shown to be analogous to the relation between Galois groups and algorithms for solving polynomial equations. Other chapters are devoted to differential geometry, relativity, electrodynamics, and the hydrogen atom. Problems are given at the end of each chapter so readers can monitor their understanding of the materials. This is a fascinating introduction to Lie groups for graduate and undergraduate students in physics, mathematics and electrical engineering, as well as researchers in these fields.

Mathematics is playing an ever more important role in the physical and biological sciences, provoking a blurring of boundaries between scientific disciplines and a resurgence of interest in the modern as well as the classical techniques of applied mathematics. This renewal of interest, both in research and teaching, has led to the establishment of the series: Texts in Applied Mathematics ( TAM). The development of new courses is a natural consequence of a high level of excitement on the research frontier as newer techniques, such as numerical and symbolic computer systems, dynamical systems, and chaos, mix with and reinforce the traditional methods of applied mathematics. Thus, the purpose of this textbook series is to meet the current and future needs of these advances and encourage the teaching of new courses. TAM will publish textbooks suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses, and will complement the Applied Mathematical Sciences (AMS) series, which will focus on advanced textbooks and research level monographs. About the Authors Daniel Kaplan specializes in the analysis of data using techniques motivated by nonlinear dynamics. His primary interest is in the interpretation of irregular physiological rhythms, but the methods he has developed have been used in geo physics, economics, marine ecology, and other fields. He joined McGill in 1991, after receiving his Ph.D from Harvard University and working at MIT. His un dergraduate studies were completed at Swarthmore College. He has worked with several instrumentation companies to develop novel types of medical monitors.
