Further Mathematics for the Physical Sciences Further Mathematics for the Physical Sciences aims to build upon the readera s knowledge of basic mathematical methods, through a gradual progression to more advanced methods and techniques. Carefully structured as a series of self--paced and self--contained chapters, this text covers the essential and most important techniques needed by physical science students. Starting with complex numbers, the text then moves on to cover vector algebra, determinants, matrices, differentiation, integration, differential equations and finally vector calculus, all within an applied environment. The reader is guided through these different techniques with the help of numerous worked examples, applications, problems, figures and summaries. The authors aim to provide high--quality and thoroughly class--tested material to meet the changing needs of science students. Further Mathematics for the Physical Sciences: aeo Is a carefully structured text, with self--contained chapters. aeo Gradually introduces mathematical techniques within an applied environment. aeo Includes many worked examples, applications, problems and summaries in each chapter. Further Mathematics for the Physical Sciences will be invaluable to all students of physics, chemistry and engineering, needing to develop or refresh their knowledge of basic mathematics. The booka s structure will make it equally valuable for course use, home study or distance learning.
