Le informazioni nella sezione "Riassunto" possono far riferimento a edizioni diverse di questo titolo.
Mathematical methods are essential tools for physical scientists. This second edition provides a comprehensive tour of the mathematical knowledge and techniques that are needed by students in this area. In contrast to traditional textbooks, the material is presented in the form of problems. The second edition contains new chapters on dimensional analysis, variational calculus, and the asymptotic evaluation of integrals. This book can be used by undergraduates and lower-level graduate students. It can serve as a stand-alone text, or as a source of problems and examples to complement other textbooks.About the Author:
