Mathematics for Physicists and Engineers

Fundamentals and Interactive Study Guide

Edition 2nd Edition
ISBN 9783642541230
Publication Date July 2014
Formats Hardcover Paperback Ebook 
Publisher Springer

This textbook offers an accessible approach to the subject of mathematics which divides the topic into smaller units, guiding students through questions, exercises and problems designed to slowly increase student confidence and experience. The sequence of studies is individualised according to performance and can be regarded as full tutorial course. 

The study guide satisfies two objectives simultaneously: firstly it enables students to make effective use of the textbook and secondly it offers advice on the improvement of study skills. Empirical studies have shown that the student's competence for using written information has improved significantly by using this study guide.

The new edition includes a new chapter on Fourier integrals and Fourier transforms, numerous sections had been updated, 30 new problems with solutions had been added. The interactive study guide has seen a substantial update.

From the book reviews:“In this mathematics textbook, you’ll find possibly all the mathematics you’d need for first years of an undergraduate physics course - algebra, geometry, calculus and statistics. … With the book there is also an online study guide designed to help the student advance quite quickly. … If taken alone, the textbook is as any other mathematics textbook for physicists, together with the study guide it is an excellent combination, especially if you prefer to study alone … .” (Kadri Tinn, AstroMadness.com, February, 2015)
