Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering – K. Riley, M. Hobson – 3rd Edition

Description

Mathematical for Physics and , Third Edition is a highly acclaimed undergraduate that teaches all the 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 ‘ functions’ of physical , cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators. This manual accompanies the third edition of for Physics and Engineering.

It contains complete worked solutions to over 400 exercises in the main textbook, the odd-numbered exercises, that are provided with hints and answers. The even-numbered exercises have no hints, answers or worked solutions and are intended for unaided homework problems
