- Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering byISBN: 0521861535Publication Date: 2006-03-20The third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences. As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics and many worked examples, it contains over 800 exercises. New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the 'special functions' of physical science, cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators. Further tabulations, of relevance in statistics and numerical integration, have been added. In this edition, half of the exercises are provided with hints and answers and, in a separate manual available to both students and their teachers, complete worked solutions. The remaining exercises have no hints, answers or worked solutions and can be used for unaided homework; full solutions are available to instructors on a password-protected web site, www.cambridge.org/9780521679718.
- A Student's Guide to Vectors and Tensors byISBN: 0521171903Publication Date: 2011-09-22Vectors and tensors are among the most powerful problem-solving tools available, with applications ranging from mechanics and electromagnetics to general relativity. Understanding the nature and application of vectors and tensors is critically important to students of physics and engineering. Adopting the same approach used in his highly popular A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations, Fleisch explains vectors and tensors in plain language. Written for undergraduate and beginning graduate students, the book provides a thorough grounding in vectors and vector calculus before transitioning through contra and covariant components to tensors and their applications. Matrices and their algebra are reviewed on the book's supporting website, which also features interactive solutions to every problem in the text where students can work through a series of hints or choose to see the entire solution at once. Audio podcasts give students the opportunity to hear important concepts in the book explained by the author.

- Differential Equations and Linear Algebra byISBN: 0130457949Publication Date: 2007-03-13For combined differential equations and linear algebra courses teaching students who have successfully completed three semesters of calculus. This complete introduction to both differential equations and linear algebra presents a carefully balanced and sound integration of the two topics. It promotes in-depth understanding rather than rote memorization, enabling students to fully comprehend abstract concepts and leave the course with a solid foundation in linear algebra. Flexible in format, it explains concepts clearly and logically with an abundance of examples and illustrations, without sacrificing level or rigor. A vast array of problems supports the material, with varying levels from which students/instructors can choose.
- Differential Equations and Linear Algebra byISBN: 9780321964670Publication Date: 2015-12-17Differential Equations and Linear Algebra is designed for use in combined differential equations and linear algebra courses. It is best suited for students who have successfully completed three semesters of calculus.
- Applied Partial Differential Equations with Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems byISBN: 0321797051Publication Date: 2012-08-22This book emphasizes the physical interpretation of mathematical solutions and introduces applied mathematics while presenting differential equations. Coverage includes Fourier series, orthogonal functions, boundary value problems, Green's functions, and transform methods. This text is ideal for readers interested in science, engineering, and applied mathematics.
