This clear, pedagogically rich book develops a strong understanding of the mathematical principles and practices that today's engineers need to know. Equally as effective as either a textbook or reference manual, it approaches mathematical concepts from an engineering perspective, making physical applications more vivid and substantial. Its comprehensive instructional framework supports a conversational, down-to-earth narrative style, offering easy accessibility and frequent opportunities for application and reinforcement.

Editorial Reviews

In updating the 1988 text, Greenberg mechanical engineering, U. of Delaware, Newark has incorporated a computer algebra system namely, Maple, with an instructor's manual and student supplement available. No longer assuming that science and engineering students have completed a course in ordinary differential equations, he covers such in the first part. The other sections span: linear algebra, multivariate calculus and field theory, Fourier methods and partial differential equations, and complex variable theory. Contains chapter reviews, exercises, selected formulas, and tables. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
