Description
The fourth edition of Mathematical Techniques provides a complete course in mathematics, covering all the essential topics with which a physical sciences or engineering student should be familiar.

With a huge array of end of chapter problems and new self-check questions, the fourth edition of Mathematical Techniques provides extensive opportunities for students to exercise and enhance their mathematical knowledge and skills.

A series of over 120 projects at the end of the book encourage students to use Mathematica to further their understanding, and downloadable notebooks are available online. Written for the Mathematica 5 series, these notebooks are largely compatible with Mathematica 6. Contents
