Synopses & Reviews
The classic Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists covers in detail all mathematical requirements common to first year engineering students of every discipline. It includes numerous illustrative worked examples and extensive problem sets at the end of each chapter, with answers to odd-numbered questions provided at the end of the book. In this sixth edition, the level of rigor has been lowered to cater to the needs of incoming engineering students. Students are encouraged to make use of computer algebra packages, primarily MAPLE and MATLAB. The author has included a new chapter on double integrals, and incorporated many new applications and examples throughout.
Synopsis
Since its original publication in 1969, Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists has built a solid foundation in mathematics for legions of undergraduate science and engineering students. It continues to do so, but as the influence of computers has grown and syllabi have evolved, once again the time has come for a new edition.
Thoroughly revised to meet the needs of today's curricula, Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists, Sixth Edition covers all of the topics typically introduced to first- or second-year engineering students, from number systems, functions, and vectors to series, differential equations, and numerical analysis. Among the most significant revisions to this edition are:
Simplified presentation of many topics and expanded explanations that further ease the comprehension of incoming engineering students
A new chapter on double integrals
Many more exercises, applications, and worked examples
A new chapter introducing the MATLAB and Maple software packages
Although designed as a textbook with problem sets in each chapter and selected answers at the end of the book, Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists, Sixth Edition serves equally well as a supplemental text and for self-study. The author strongly encourages readers to make use of computer algebra software, to experiment with it, and to learn more about mathematical functions and the operations that it can perform.
