Mathematical techniques : an introduction for the engineering, physical, and mathematical sciences
Mathematical concepts and theories underpin much of the physical sciences and engineering.
Yet maths is a subject that many students find challenging, and even intimidating - despite it being so central to their field of study. Mathematical Techniques provides a complete course in mathematics, covering all the essential topics with which a physical sciences or engineering student should be familiar. By breaking the subject into small, modular chapters, the book introduces and builds on concepts in a progressive, carefully-layered way - always with an emphasis on how to use the power of maths to best effect, rather than on theoretical proofs of the maths presented. With a huge array of end of chapter problems, and new self-check questions, the fourth edition of Mathematical Techniques provides extensive opportunities for students to build their confidence in the best way possible: by using the maths for themselves.
