This textbook on mathematical methods of physics is designed for a one-semester graduate or two-semester advanced undergraduate course. Formal methods are supplemented by applications that use Mathematica for both symbolic and numeric calculations.
A number of exercises are included at the end of each chapter, and an accompanying student CD has a basic introduction to Mathematica, notebook files for each chapter, and solutions to selected exercises. Instructors may contact the publisher for a CD with detailed solutions to all the problems. Contents
