Mathematical Techniques

An Introduction for the Engineering, Physical, and Mathematical Sciences

Fourth Edition

Dominic Jordan and Peter Smith

  • Short, modular chapters make the book flexible enough to be used on a wide variety of courses.
  • Over 500 worked examples show how the techniques are applied and offer valuable guidance for the reader when tackling the problems.
  • Self-check questions and over 2000 end-of-chapter problems provide extensive opportunities for students to actively master the concepts presented.
  • Emphasis on methods and applications keeps students moving through the subject without being slowed down by detailed mathematical proofs.
  • A series of Projects at the end of the book encourage student to use mathematical software to develop further their understanding of the concepts covered.
  • The Online Resource Centre features additional resources for lecturers and students, to enhance the value of the book as a teaching and learning tool.

New to this Edition:

  • - New introductions at the beginning of each chapter explaining the chapter's content, aim, and context.
  • - New self-check questions at the end of most sections.
  • - A new appendix covering one-dimensional analysis and units.
  • - New topics including: conic sections, complex numbers, linear dependence, nonlinear differential equations, stationary values, infinite integrals, vector calculus, and difference equations.
