Essential Mathematical Methods for Physicists – Hans J. Weber, George B. Arfken – 1st Edition


This new adaptation of and ’s bestselling for Physicists, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, modern, and accessible for using to solve physics problems.

REVIEWERS SAY: “Examples are excellent. They cover a wide range of physics problems.” – Bing Zhou, of Michigan

“The ideas are communicated very well and it is easy to understand…It has a more modern treatment than most, has a very complete range of topics and each is treated in sufficient detail….I’m not aware of another better at this level…” -Gary Wysin, Kansas State University

* This is a more accessible version of Arken/Weber’s blockbuster reference, which already has more than 13,000 sales worldwide
* Many more detailed, worked-out examples illustrate how to use and apply mathematical techniques to solve physics problems
* More frequent and thorough explanations help readers understand, recall, and apply the theory
* New introductions and review material provide context and extra support for key ideas
* Many more routine problems reinforce basic, foundational concepts and computations
