1 Review
Mathematical concepts and theories underpin much of the physical sciences and engineering. Yet maths is a subject that many students find challenging, and even intimidating - despite it being so central to their field of study. Mathematical Techniques provides a complete course in mathematics, covering all the essential topics with which a physical sciences or engineering student should be familiar. By breaking the subject into small, modular chapters, the book introduces and builds on concepts in a progressive, carefully-layered way - always with an emphasis on how to use the power of maths to best effect, rather than on theoretical proofs of the maths presented. With a huge array of end of chapter problems, and new self-check questions, the fourth edition of Mathematical Techniques provides extensive opportunities for students to build their confidence in the best way possible: by using the maths for themselves. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre features the following materials for all users of the book: · Figures from the book in electronic format, ready to download · A downloadable solutions manual, featuring worked solutions to all end of chapter problems · Mathematica-based programs, relating to the Projects featured at the end of the book

A straightforward introduction to beginning University-level mathematics and a good companion volume to Stroud for this level. Working from this book will take some of the sting out of the transition from 'A'-Level to more advanced work. BGN Read full review
