Mathematical Methods for Physicists
About this instructor site
Welcome to the companion site for Mathematical Methods for Physicists, Seventh Edition. We have provided the following additional chapters:
- A new chapter (designated 31) on Periodic Systems, dealing with mathematical topics associated with lattice summations and band theory.
- A chapter (32) on Mathieu functions, built using material from two chapters in the sixth edition, but expanded into a single coherent presentation.
- A chapter (33) on Chaos, modeled after Chapter 18 of the sixth edition but carefully edited.
Nonlinear Methods and Chaos
- A chapter (1) on Infinite Series that was built by collection of suitable topics from various places in the seventh edition text. This alternate Chapter 1 contains no material not already in the seventh edition but its subject matter has been packaged into a separate unit to meet the demands of instructors who wish to begin their course with a detailed study of Infinite Series in place of the new Mathematical Preliminaries chapter.
