Advanced engineering mathematics
Wiley, 1990 - Mathematics - 502 pages
A good mathematical grounding is essential for all engineers and scientists. This book updates the First Edition and continues the ''integrated'' approach of the authors primary text, Engineering Mathematics. It introduces each topic by considering a real example and formulating the mathematical model for the problem, and solutions are considered using both analytical and numerical techniques. In this Second Edition, any unnecessary mathematical material has been omitted, making room for revisions and new material. Modified problem sets include more up-to-date examples from Engineering Council examinations and now appear at the end of each chapter to better reinforce understanding of the material covered. The chapter on integral transforms has been extended to meet the needs of electrical engineering applications. There is new material on Fourier transforms, and Z- and Discrete Fourier transforms are introduced. Parts of the text can be run on appropriate computer programs and others make extensive use of calculators. Also included are a generous supply
