Mathematical Methods for Physicists – Arfken & Weber – 3rd Edition


, Third Edition provides an advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate study in science, focusing on the of theoretical physics. This edition includes sections on the non-Cartesian tensors, dispersion theory, first-order equations, numerical application of Chebyshev , the fast Fourier transform, and functions.

Many of the physical examples provided in this , which are used to illustrate the of mathematics, are taken from the fields of theory and quantum . The Hermitian operators, Hilbert space, and concept of completeness are also deliberated. This book is beneficial to students studying graduate level physics, particularly theoretical physics.
