 Summary
 "The mathematical methods that physical scientists need for solving substantial problems in their fields of study are set out clearly and simply in this tutorialstyle textbook. Students will develop problemsolving skills through hundreds of worked examples, selftest questions and homework problems. Each chapter concludes with a summary of the main procedures and results and all assumed prior knowledge is summarized in one of the appendices. Over 300 worked examples show how to use the techniques and around 100 selftest questions in the footnotes act as checkpoints to build student confidence. Nearly 400 endofchapter problems combine ideas from the chapter to reinforce the concepts. Hints and outline answers to the oddnumbered problems are given at the end of each chapter, with fullyworked solutions to these problems given in the accompanying Student Solutions Manual. Fullyworked solutions to all problems, passwordprotected for instructors, are available at www.cambridge.org/essential"
