Mathematics for Physics

Michael M. Woolfson and Malcolm S. Woolfson

  • The broad scope provides great flexibility, supporting use on a wide range of courses.
  • Content spans both first and second year, bringing lecturers the convenience of a single text to support two years of teaching; and students the reassurance of a consistent approach between courses and, as one text for two courses, greater value for money.
  • The layering of mathematical theory with applications to physics strikes a careful balance between theory and practice. It enables the student to grasp the underlying concepts, and increases the students' motivation by demonstrating the concepts' practical relevance.
  • Extensive learning support, through exercises, problems, and computer programs, encourages active learning to make the studying experience as effective as possible.
  • Worked solutions to all exercises and problems help students to check they understand every step in a mathematical task, empowering them to apply familiar skills to new, unfamiliar problems.
  • Online Resource Centre features figures from the book, and a suite of FORTRAN, C, and MATLAB computer programs, to support both teaching and learning.
