KEY FEATURES: This is a more accessible version of Arfken and Weber's blockbuster reference, Mathematical Methods for Physicists, 5th Edition Many more detailed, worked-out examples illustrate how to use and apply mathematical techniques to solve physics problems More frequent and thorough explanations help readers understand, recall, and apply the theory New introductions and review material provide context and extra support for key ideas Many more routine problems reinforce basic concepts and computations

About the Author

By Dr. Hans J. Weber and Dr. George B. Arfken


"True to the title, this new text achieves a comprehensive coverage of the 'essential' topics in mathematical physics at the undergraduate level. This new version is filled with enlightening examples, which is the key to undergraduate teaching. More importantly, many examples are real problems from various fields of physics." - David Hwang, University of California at Davis "The book contains many worked out problems some of which are solved in more than one way to accommodate different learning needs and styles of different students. Particularly, the chapters on vector analysis, determinant and matrices, Fourier series, and probability are extremely well written and will be an instant success with the students." - Amit Chakrabati, Kansas State University
