Introduction to Mathematical Physics: Methods & Concepts

Chun Wa Wong


Mathematical physics provides physical theories with their logical basis and the tools for drawing conclusions from hypotheses. Introduction to Mathematical Physics explains to the reader why and how mathematics is needed in the description of physical events in space. For undergraduates in physics, it is a classroom-tested textbook on vector analysis, linear operators, Fourier series and integrals, differential equations, special functions and functions of a complex variable. Strongly correlated with core undergraduate courses on classical and quantum mechanics and electromagnetism, it helps ... More

Keywords: space-time, functions, motion, relativity, nonlinearity, vector algebra, fourier series, fourier transform, differential equations
