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


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

Many of the examples provided in this book, which are used to illustrate the of mathematics, are taken from the fields of electromagnetic theory and mechanics. 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.
