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


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

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