Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences – Mary L Boas – 3rd Edition


Now in its third edition, Mathematical Concepts in the provides a comprehensive introduction to the areas of mathematical . It combines all the essential math concepts into one compact, clearly written reference.

This is an excellent for undergraduates in and . I would suggest this text without hesitation for anyone in the and mathematical -physics, applied math, , mechanics, acoustics, etc. Also, this is as `cookie-cutter’ as you want it to be. Just change some boundary conditions or make up some unique forcing functions and the section on PDEs becomes a lot of fun.
