From reviews of previous editions a great scientific textbook It is a tour de force to write mathematical sections that are both complete and at an appropriate academic level The authors have clearly succeeded in this challenge, making this a remarkable pedagogical book The choice of exercises is excellent and possibly the best feature of the book In summary, this textbook is a great reference at undergraduate levels, particularly for those who like to teach or learn using lots of examples and exercises R Botet, European Journal of Physics 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 and value for money It contains a thousand pages, there are plenty of exercises with each chapter J M Thijssen, European Journal of PhysicsThis is a valuable book with great potential use in present day university physics courses Further, 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 This textbook is a well written, modern, comprehensive, and complete collection of topics in mathematical methods ranging from a review of differential and integral calculus to group and representation theory, probability, the calculus of variations, and tensors Science Books and Films This is a very comprehensive textbook suitable for most students enrolling on undergraduate degree courses in engineering It containsstand alone chapters of mathematical methods which enable the students to understand the principles of the basic mathematical techniques and the authors have produced a clear, thorough and straightforward explanation of each subject finding a single textbook which covers the engineering student s need throughout their entire course is by no means an easy task I believe the authors have achieved it complete fully worked solutions which I think is a useful asset for both students and lecturers Civil Engineering this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics ever likely to be needed for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics covered and many worked examples, it containsthanexercises L enseignement mathematiqueThe 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 overexercises 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 In this edition, half of the exercises are provided with hints and answers and, in a separate manual available to both students and their teachers, complete worked solutions The remaining exercises have no hints, answers or worked solutions and can be used for unaided homework full solutions are available to instructors on a password protected web site, cambridge
