This book has evolved from an introductory course in mathematics given to engine,ering students at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne during the last few years. It represents the author's attempt to offer the engineering student, and the science student who is not majoring in a mathematical aspect of this subject, a broad and modern account of those parts of mathe- matics that are finding increasingly important application in the everyday development of his subject. Although this book does not seek to teach any of the many physical disciplines to which its results and methods may be applied, it nevertheless makes free use of them for purposes of illustration whenever this seems to be helpful. Every effort has been made to integrate the various chapters into as a single subject, and not as a collection of a description of mathematics seemingly unrelated topics. Thus, for example, matrices are not only intro- duced in an algebraic context, but they are also related in other chapters to change of variables in partial differentiation and to the study of simultaneous differential equations.
