From best-selling author Donald McQuarrie comes his newest text, Mathematical Methods for Scientists and Engineers. Intended for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in chemistry, physics, math and engineering, this book will also become a must-have for the personal library of all advanced students in the physical sciences. Comprised of more than 2000 problems and 700 worked examples that detail every single step, this text is exceptionally well adapted for self study as well as for course use. Famous for his clear writing, careful pedagogy, and wonderful problems and examples, McQuarrie has crafted yet another tour de force.
'McQuarrie's Mathematical Methods for Scientists and Engineers is a well-written, carefully conceived panorama of an extensive mathematical landscape. From asymptotic analysis to linear algebra to partial differential equations and complex variables, McQuarrie provides relevant background, physical and mathematical intuition and motivation, and just the right dose of mathematical rigor to get the ideas across effectively. The large collection of examples and exercises will prove indispensable for teaching and learning the material.' - Dennis DeTurck, University of Pennsylvania, USA 'McQuarrie has produced a masterpiece that anyone would want to have handy when confronted with the need to perform serious mathematical analyses. It's destined to become a classic reference text...beautifully illustrated with two-color graphical side bars that emphasize the principles presented in the text. It includes vignettes of the lives of various mathematicians that almost make them seem human...as appealing as any reference work you might imagine on this topic...The text is authoritative and comprehensive...what every undergraduate student should master to become mathematically adept.' - Richard N Zare, Stanford University, USA, Chemical and Engineering News
