### Engineering Mathematics (5th Edition)

Description
Engineering Mathematics 5th Edition covers a wide range of syllabus requirements. In particular, the book is most suitable for the latest National Certificate and Diploma courses and City & Guilds syllabuses in Engineering.

This text will provide a foundation in mathematical principles, which will enable students to solve mathematical, scientific and associated engineering principles. In addition, the material will provide engineering applications and mathematical principles necessary for advancement onto a range of Incorporated Engineer degree profiles. It is widely recognised that a students’ ability to use mathematics is a key element in determining subsequent success. First year undergraduates who need some remedial mathematics will also find this book meets their needs.

In Engineering Mathematics 5th Edition, new material is included on inequalities, differentiation of parametric equations, implicit and logarithmic functions and an introduction to differential equations. Because of restraints on extent, chapters on linear correlation, linear regression and sampling and estimation theories have been removed. However, these three chapters are available to all via the internet.
