The third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences. As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics and many worked examples, it contains over exercises. New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the 'special functions' of physical science The third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences.

New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the 'special functions' of physical science, cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators. Further tabulations, of relevance in statistics and numerical integration, have been added. In this edition, half of the exercises are provided with hints and answers and, in a separate manual available to both students and their teachers, complete worked solutions.

The remaining exercises have no hints, answers or worked solutions and can be used for unaided homework; full solutions are available to instructors on a password-protected web site, www. Get A Copy.

## Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering by K. F. Riley, M. P. Hobson | Waterstones

Indispensable to anyone wanting to learn a bit more about applied mathematics, with a focus on applications in physics and engineering. This took nearly two months to read, taking notes. I can only imagine how much longer you could spend with this book if you wanted to tackle every suggested exercise. Years probably. You can get a lot out of it just working through the theorems and derivations though, just because there are so many, and because they are explained in so much detail.

I won't prete Indispensable to anyone wanting to learn a bit more about applied mathematics, with a focus on applications in physics and engineering. I won't pretend that I understand and thus can derive everything in this book, but I now feel like I could study this if I wanted to.

Good teachers give you the confidence to go further and study even more. A personal note. It corresponds to the mathematics courses delivered in the first two years of the Cambridge degree, and the authors appear to be Cambridge mathmos or similar. If I had listened when my lecturers had recommended this book, and then read and absorbed the material, then maybe I would have got a degree after all.

Although now it makes more sense, and back then it all was too much to take in, too quickly. Oh well. Pick your own moral of the story: listen to experienced people giving you good advice, read more, people learn in different ways.
