Higher Mathematics for Engineers and Physicists (Second Edition)


The favorable reception of the First Edition of this volume appears to have sustained the authors' belief in the need of a book on mathematics beyond the calculus, \vritten from the point of view of the student of applied science. The chief purpose of the book is to help to bridge the gap which separates many engineers from mathematics by giving them a bird's-eye view of those mathematical topics which are indispensable in the study of the physical sciences. It has been a common complaint of engineers and physicists that the usual courses in advanced calculus and differential equations place insufficient emphasis on the art of formulating physical problems in mathematical terms. There may also be a measure of truth in the criticism that many students \vith pronounced utilitarian leanings are obliged to depend on books that are more distinguished for rigor than for robust uses of mathematics.
