Publisher Comments:

This book, derived from an innovative course of lectures, is a first introduction to the mathematical description of fields, flows and waves. It shows students, early in their studies, how many of the topics they have encountered are useful in constructing, analysing and interpreting phenomena in the real world. Designed for second-year undergraduate students in mathematics, mathematical physics, and engineering, it presumes only a limited familiarity with several variable calculus and vector fields. It develops the concepts of flux, conservation law and boundary value problem through simple examples of heat flow, electric potentials and gravitational fields. The ideas are developed through worked examples, and a range of exercises (with solutions) is provided to test understanding. Chapters 1-7 contain ample material for an introductory lecture course, while later chapters on waves in fluids, solids and electromagnetism, and on bio-mathematics, show how the extension of earlier ideas leads to the description and explanation of important topics in modern technology and science.

Synopsis:

This book serves as an introduction to the use of mathematics in describing collective phenomena in physics and biology. Derived from a course of innovative lectures, the book shows students early in their studies how many of the topics they have encountered - partial differential equations, differential equations, Fourier series, and linear algebra - are useful in constructing, analysing and interpreting phenomena present in the real world. Throughout, ideas are developed using worked examples and exercises with solution. The text does not assume a strong background in physics.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 261-262) and index.
