Summary and Info
This is an excellent tool kit for solving the mathematical problems encountered by undergraduates in physics and engineering. This second book in a two volume work introduces integral and differential calculus, waves, matrices, and eigenvectors. All mathematics needed for an introductory course in the physical sciences is included. The emphasis is on learning through understanding real examples, showing mathematics as a tool for understanding physical systems and their behavior, so that the student feels at home with real mathematical problems. Dr. Lyons brings a wealth of teaching experience to this refreshing textbook on the fundamentals of mathematics for physics and engineering.
