Synopses & Reviews
This well-known text and reference contains an account of those mathematical methods that have applications in at least two branches of physics. The authors give examples of the practical use of the methods taken from a wide range of physics, including dynamics, hydrodynamics, elasticity, electromagnetism, heat conduction, wave motion and quantum theory. They pay particular attention to the conditions under which theorems hold. Helpful exercises accompany each chapter.
Review
"This outstandingly excellent mathematical treatise...is a fine product of British mathematical scholarship, and a benefaction to the cause of progress in natural philosophy." Nature"This text is a classic that is well worth having." The Bulletin of Mathematical Books"...an almost indispensible work of reference for anyone attempting research in theoretical physics." Proceedings of the Physical Society
Synopsis
This well-known text and reference contains an account of those parts of mathematics that are most frequently needed in physics. As a working rule, it includes methods which have applications in at least two branches of physics. Examples of the practical use of the methods developed are given in the text: these are taken from a wide range of physics, including dynamics, hydrodynamics, elasticity, electromagnetism, heat conduction, wave motion and quantum theory. Exercises accompany each chapter.
