Summary
The Handbook of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists covers the main fields of mathematics
and focuses on the methods used for obtaining solutions of various classes of mathematical
equations that underlie the mathematical modeling of numerous phenomena and processes in science and technology.
To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the preeminent authors outline the material in a simplified,
schematic manner, avoiding special terminology wherever possible.
Organized in ascending order of complexity, the material is divided into two parts. The first part is a concise,
coherent survey of the most important definitions, formulas, equations, methods, and theorems. It covers
arithmetic,
elementary geometry,
analytic geometry,
algebra,
differential calculus,
integral calculus,
differential geometry,
functions of complex variable,
integral transforms,
ordinary differential equations,
linear and nonlinear partial differential equations,
integral equations,
difference and functional equations,
special functions,
calculus of variations,
probability theory, and
more.
Numerous specific examples clarify the methods for solving
problems and equations. The second part provides a large number of indepth mathematical tables, including those of
exact solutions to various types of ordinary differential,
partial differential,
integral, and functional equations.
This concise, comprehensive compendium of mathematical definitions, methods, formulas, equations, solutions,
and theorems provides the foundation for exploring scientific and technological phenomena.
