It is intended primarily for first-year physics graduate students; in recent years most senior physics undergraduates, as well as graduate students from other departments, have been taking it. This book has evolved from the notes that have been used in this course. We make little effort to teach physics in this text; the emphasis is on presenting mathematical techniques that have proved to be useful in analyzing problems in physics, We assume that the student has been exposed to the standard undergraduate physics curriculum: mechanics, electricity and magnetism, introductory quantum mechanics, ctc. In short, this is a book about mathematics, for physic Both motivation and standards are drawn from physic: that is, the choice of subjects is dictated by their useful- ness in physics, and the level of rigor is intended to reflect current practice in theoretical physics. It is assumed that the student has become acquainted with the following mathematical subjects: 1. Simultaneous linear equations and determinants; 2. Vector analysis, including differentiat operations in curvilinear coordinates; 3.

Springer At the same level as this text with many of the same topics, but said differently. Here the geometry is paramount, but the traditional material is present too.

Well, I think so anyway. The Schaum text provides a complementary image of the subject. Jones and Bartlett Press Another very good choice for a text on complex variables. Despite the title, mathematicians should find nothing wanting here. Applied Analysis by Lanczos.

Dover Publications This publisher has a large selection of moderately priced, high quality books. More discursive than most books on numerical analysis, and shows great insight into the subject. Linear Differential Operators by Lanczos. Dover publications As always with this author, useful insights and unusual ways to look at the subject. Numerical Methods that usually Work by Acton. Mathematical Association of America Practical tools with more than the usual discussion of what can and will go wrong.

Numerical Recipes by Press et al. Cambridge Press The standard current compendium surveying techniques and theory, with programs in one or another language.

Springer This is the only text on tensors that I will recommend. To anyone. Under any circumstances. Linear Algebra Done Right by Axler. Linear Algebra Done Wrong by Treil. The Schaum text provides a complementary image of the subject.

Under any circumstances. Linear Algebra Done Right by Axler. Linear Algebra Done Wrong by Treil. Advanced mathematical methods for scientists and engineers by Bender and Orszag. Dover Starts at the beginning and goes a long way in pages. Clear and explicit and cheap. Does your solution do the right thing?

In electromagnetism, if you make a couple of parameters equal to each other does it reduce everything to a simple, special case? When you address these questions to every problem you ever solve, you do several things.

Second, you acquire an intuition about how the equations ought to behave and how the world that they describe ought to behave.

Third, It makes all your later efforts easier because you will then have some clue about why the equations work the way they do. It reifies the algebra. Does it take extra time? Of course. It will however be some of the most valuable extra time you can spend.

Is it only the students in my classes, or is it a widespread phenomenon that no one is willing to sketch a graph? And keep referring to it. Several more chapters were added after the class was over, so this is now far beyond a one semester text. There is enough here to select from if this is a course text, but if you are reading it on your own then you can move through it as you please, though you will find that the first five chapters are used more in the later parts than are chapters six and seven.

Chapters 8, 9, and 13 form a sort of package.

The choice of available mathematics fonts is more limited. Also Howard Gordon, who used it in his course and provided me with many suggestions for improvements. Joseph Tenn of Sonoma State University has given me many very helpful ideas, correcting mistakes, improving notation, and suggesting ways to help the students.

For polar and cylindrical coordinate systems it is common to use theta for the polar angle in one and phi for the polar angle in the other. In line integrals it is common to use ds for an element of length, and many authors will use dS for an element of area.

This text is now available in print from Dover Publishers. They have agreed that the electronic version will remain available online.

Cambridge Uni- versity Press For the quantity of well-written material here, it is surprisingly inexpensive in paperback. Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences by Boas. John Wiley Publ About the right level and with a very useful selection of topics.
