**Mathematical Methods for Physicists** serves as both textbook and/or useful reference work. This world renowned and well respected title provides in one handy volume the essential mathematical tools and techniques used to solve problems in physics and engineering. It is a vital addition to the bookshelf of any serious student of physics and or research professional in the field. The authors have put considerable effort into revamping this new edition.

Features:

• More advanced sections, including differential forms and the elegant forms of Maxwell's equations

• A new chapter on Probability and Statistics

• More elementary sections have been deleted

"As to a comparison with other books of the same ilk, well, in all honesty, there are none. No other text on methods of mathematical physics is as comprehensive and as complete..."
