In addition to the review material and some basic topics as discussed in the opening chapter, the main text in Volume I covers topics on infinite series, differential and integral calculus, matrices, vector calculus, ordinary differential equations, special functions and Laplace transforms. Volume II covers topics on complex analysis, Fourier analysis, partial differential equations and statistics. The present book has numerous distinguishing features over the already existing books on the same topic. The chapters have been planned to create interest among the readers to study and apply the mathematical tools. The subject has been presented in a very lucid and precise manner with a wide variety of examples and exercises, which would eventually help the reader for hassle free study.

Engineers require a solid knowledge of the relationship between engineering applications and underlying mathematical theory. However, most books do not present sufficient theory, or they do not fully explain its importance and relevance in understanding those applications. Advanced Engineering Mathematics with Modeling Applications employs a balanced approach to address this informational void, providing a solid comprehension of mathematical theory that will enhance understanding of applications – and vice versa. With a focus on modeling, this book illustrates why mathematical methods work, when they apply, and what their limitations are. Designed specifically for use in graduate-level courses, this book: Emphasizes mathematical modeling, dimensional analysis, scaling, and their application to macroscale and nanoscale problems Explores eigenvalue problems for discrete and continuous systems and many applications Develops and applies approximate methods, such as Rayleigh-Ritz and finite element methods Presents applications that use contemporary research in areas such as nanotechnology Apply the Same Theory to Vastly Different Physical Problems Presenting mathematical theory at an understandable level, this text explores topics from real and functional analysis, such as vector spaces, inner products, norms, and linear operators, to formulate mathematical models of engineering problems for both discrete and continuous systems. The author presents theorems and proofs, but without the full detail found in mathematical books, so that development of the theory does not obscure its application to engineering problems. He applies principles and theorems of linear algebra to derive solutions, including proofs of theorems when they are instructive. Tying mathematical theory to applications, this book provides engineering students with a strong foundation in mathematical terminology and methods.
Advanced Engineering Mathematics provides comprehensive and contemporary coverage of key mathematical ideas, techniques, and their widespread applications, for students majoring in engineering, computer science, mathematics and physics. Using a wide range of examples throughout the book, Jeffrey illustrates how to construct simple mathematical models, how to apply mathematical reasoning to select a particular solution from a range of possible alternatives, and how to determine which solution has physical significance. Jeffrey includes material that is not found in works of a similar nature, such as the use of the matrix exponential when solving systems of ordinary differential equations. The text provides many detailed, worked examples following the introduction of each new idea, and large problem sets provide both routine practice, and, in many cases, greater challenge and insight for students. Most chapters end with a set of computer projects that require the use of any CAS (such as Maple or Mathematica) that reinforce ideas and provide insight into more advanced problems. Comprehensive coverage of frequently used integrals, functions and fundamental mathematical results Contents selected and organized to suit the needs of students, scientists, and engineers Contains tables of Laplace and Fourier transform pairs New section on numerical approximation New section on the z-transform Easy reference system
Now in its sixth edition, Higher Engineering Mathematics is an established textbook that has helped many thousands of students to gain exam success. John Bird's approach is ideal for students from a wide range of academic backgrounds, and can be worked through at the student's own pace. Mathematical theories are examined in the simplest of terms, supported by practical examples and applications from a wide variety of engineering disciplines, to ensure that the reader can apply theory to practice. This extensive and thorough topic coverage makes this an ideal book for a range of university degree modules, foundation degrees, and HNC/D units. This new edition of Higher Engineering Mathematics has been further extended with topics specifically written to help first year engineering degree students and those following foundation degrees. New material has been added on logarithms and exponential functions, binary, octal and hexadecimal numbers, vectors and methods of adding alternating waveforms. This book caters specifically for the engineering mathematics units of the Higher National Engineering schemes from Edexcel, including the core unit Analytical methods for Engineers, and two optional units: Further Analytical Methods for Engineers and Engineering Mathematics, common to both the electrical/electronic engineering and mechanical engineering pathways. A mapping grid is included showing precisely which topics are required for the learning outcomes of each unit. Higher Engineering Mathematics contains examples, supported by 900 worked problems and 1760 further problems contained within exercises throughout the text. In addition, 19 revision tests, which are available to use as tests or as homework are included at regular intervals.

This graduate-level physics textbook provides a comprehensive treatment of the basic principles and phenomena of classical electromagnetism. While many electromagnetism texts use the subject to teach mathematical methods of physics, here the emphasis is on the physical ideas themselves. Anupam Garg distinguishes between electromagnetism in vacuum and that in material media, stressing that the core physical questions are different for each. In vacuum, the focus is on the fundamental content of electromagnetic laws, symmetries, conservation laws, and the implications for phenomena such as radiation and light. In material media, the focus is on understanding the response of the media to imposed fields, the attendant constitutive relations, and the phenomena encountered in different types of media such as dielectrics, ferromagnets, and conductors. The text includes applications to many topical subjects, such as magnetic levitation, plasmas, laser beams, and synchrotrons. Classical Electromagnetism in a Nutshell is ideal for a yearlong graduate course and features more than 300 problems, with solutions to many of the advanced ones. Key formulas are given in both SI and Gaussian units; the book includes a discussion of how to convert between them, making it accessible to adherents of both systems. Offers a complete treatment of classical electromagnetism Emphasizes physical ideas Separates the treatment of electromagnetism in vacuum and material media Presents key formulas in both SI and Gaussian units Covers applications to other areas of physics Includes more than 300 problems
