Mathematical Methods for Physicists – Tai L. Chow – 1st Edition

This text is designed for an intermediate-level, two-semester undergraduate course in . It provides an accessible account of most of the important mathematical tools required in these days.

It is assumed that the reader has an adequate preparation in general physics and calculus. The book bridges the gap between an introductory physics course and more advanced courses in classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, and thermal and statistical physics.

The text contains a large number of worked examples to illustrate the mathematical techniques developed and to show their relevance to physics. The book is designed primarily for undergraduate physics majors, but could also be used by in other subjects, such as engineering, astronomy and mathematics.
