Description
For 1st and 2nd year undergraduate Maths students and students studying Engineering.

Mathematical Methods for Engineers and Scientists, 4e has been developed by the authors after many years’ experience teaching similar material both at RMIT and various other tertiary institutions within Australia.

Used as a set of working notes rather than a “textbook” in the usual sense of the word, these notes provide students with practice in the fundamental techniques of mathematical methods. Self-help exercises and Quick tests are included at strategic points in the notes so that students can continually assess how well fundamental concepts and ideas have been understood.

Index
New to this edition
NEW – Split into three parts: First Semester, Second Semester and Appendices for easier navigation through the course.
NEW – Appendix B: A collection of Formulae provides students with a series of formulae that they will require for revision and exams. Answers to exercises are now in appendix D.
NEW – Appendix C: A collection of Integrals provides students with a series of integrals that they will require for revision and exams. Answers to quick tests can be found in appendix E.
Features & benefits
• Self-help exercises are included so that the student can continually assess how well they understand fundamental concepts and ideas. These self-help exercises should be attempted before attempting any exercises at the end of each chapter.
• Many of the end-of-chapter exercises have appeared as questions in examination papers in first year courses.
• Quick Tests provide practice in the fundamental techniques underlying the theoretical material introduced in the chapter; and reinforce basic ideas.
