Mathematical Methods of Physics – Mathews & Walker – 2nd Edition

This well-known text treats a variety of topics, ranging in difficulty from simple differential equations to group theory. Physical intuition, rather than rigor, is used to develop facility, and the authors have kept the text at a level consistent with the needs and abilities of upper-division . This covers subjects which are often ignored in traditional texts; for example, statistics and the fitting of experimental data, dispersion relations and super-convergence relations and the group SU(3).
