This essential new text by Dr. Susan Lea will help physics undergraduate and graduate student hone their mathematical skills. Ideal for the one-semester course, MATHEMATICS FOR PHYSICISTS has been extensively class-tested at San Francisco State University–and the response has been enthusiastic from students and instructors alike. Because physics students are often uncomfortable using the mathematical tools that they learned in their undergraduate courses, MATHEMATICS FOR PHYSICISTS provides students with the necessary tools to hone those skills.

Lea designed the text specifically for physics students by using physics problems to teach mathematical concepts.
