### Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering (Free PDF)

Description
The third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics ever likely to be needed for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences. As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics covered and many worked examples, it contains more than 800 exercises. A number of additional topics have been included and the text has undergone
significant reorganisation in some areas. New stand-alone chapters:

• give a systematic account of the ‘special functions’ of physical scienc
• cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables including WKB methods and saddle-point integration techniques
• provide an introduction to quantum operators.

Further tabulations, of relevance in statistics and numerical integration, have been added. In this edition, all 400 odd-numbered exercises are provided with complete worked solutions in a separate manual, available to both students and their teachers; these are in addition to the hints and outline answers given in the main text. The even-numbered exercises have no hints, answers or worked solutions and can be used for unaided homework; full solutions to them are available to instructors on a password-protected website.
