## Advanced methods of mathematical physicsIn an introductory style with many examples, Advanced Methods of Mathematical Physics presents, some of the concepts, methods, and tools that form the core of mathematical physics. The material covers two main broad categories of topics: 1) abstract topics, such as groups, topology, integral equations, and stochasticity, and 2) the methods of nonlinear dynamics. |
