Mathematical Methods for Physicists – Arfken & Weber – 3rd Edition


for Physicists, Third Edition provides an advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate study in , focusing on the of theoretical . This edition includes sections on the non-Cartesian tensors, dispersion theory, first-order , numerical application of Chebyshev polynomials, the fast Fourier transform, and functions.

Many of the physical examples provided in this book, which are used to illustrate the applications of mathematics, are taken from the fields of electromagnetic theory and quantum . The Hermitian operators, Hilbert space, and concept of completeness are also deliberated. This book is beneficial to studying graduate level physics, particularly theoretical physics.
