## Description

Here we have another classic mathematical physics textbook. Written by Mary L. Boas back in 1966, the 3d edition of the book still dominates the shelves and happens to be one of the popular reference guides to both math and physics undergrads. The topics covered include basic algebra, calculus, complex analysis, series, differential equations, statistics and probability theory, tensors and a few others. In addition, the book contains problems after each section with answers to selected problems given at the end.

This book is intended for students who have had a two-semester or three-semester introductory calculus course. Its purpose is to help students develop, in a short time, a basic competence in each of the many areas of mathematics needed in advanced courses in physics, chemistry, and engineering. Students are given sufficient depth to gain a solid foundation (this is not a recipe book). At the same time, they are not overwhelmed with detailed proofs that are more appropriate for students of mathematics. The emphasis is on mathematical methods rather than applications, but students are given some idea of how the methods will be used along with some simple applications.
