Advanced Mathematical Methods for Engineering and Science by G. Stephenson

By G. Stephenson

This textbook offers an excellent starting place to a couple of very important issues in arithmetic of curiosity to technological know-how and engineering scholars. integrated are tensor algebra, usual differential equations, contour integration, Laplace and Fourier transforms, partial differential equations and the calculus of diversifications. The authors' strategy is straightforward and direct with an emphasis at the analytical knowing of the cloth. The textual content is almost selfcontained, assuming simply that the scholar has an effective realizing of ancillary arithmetic. every one bankruptcy features a huge variety of labored examples, and concludes with difficulties for resolution, with solutions behind the ebook.
