Mathematical Methods for Physicists, Third Edition provides an advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate study in physical science, focusing on the mathematics of theoretical physics.

This edition includes sections on the non-Cartesian tensors, dispersion theory, first-order differential equations, numerical application of Chebyshev polynomials, the fast Fourier transform, and transfer functions. Many of the physical examples provided in this book, which are used to illustrate the applications of mathematics, are taken from the fields of electromagnetic theory and quantum mechanics. The Hermitian operators, Hilbert space, and concept of completeness are also deliberated.

This book is beneficial to students studying graduate level physics, particularly theoretical physics.

As far as I remember this book was required reading for the “Special Functions” course. You could argue that this is not a pure Physics book. However, it is certainly not a pure Mathematics book, since the examples are related to Physics problems: Vector Analysis Group Theory Infinite Series Complex Algebra Special FunctionsI think that this is an awesome book. Sometimes I just read it for fun. Seriously. I can’t understand, how people can be so negative about it. Probably they were forced to go through the material at high speed without much help from their professors. I admit that this is not a good approach, especially given the size of the book.

One of the textbooks for an applied mathematics course I took in the Cornell engineering school as an undergraduate. It has good discussions of coordinate systems, tensors, and group theory.

good app with good book

I like it very much
