Product Description

From the Back Cover

This important new edition provides a complete course in engineering mathematics for degree and diploma students in electronic, electrical, systems and telecommunications engineering. It can be used throughout 1st and 2nd year degree programmes.
It is also extremely relevant to the growing areas of computer, software and design engineering.
Key features of this edition-
* This book develops and illustrates concepts through relevant and modern engineering
examples.
* All the necessary mathematical foundations are covered in detail in the early chapters, making this text particularly suitable for students from a variety of backgrounds.
* There is thorough coverage of Laplace, z and Fourier transforms, providing an
excellent foundation for signal processing methods.
Key new changes based on extensive research from students and lecturers-
* Improved format and 2-colour text design
* Increased coverage of basic algebraic techniques
* A new chapter on co-ordinate systems
* Extensive new material on the discrete Fourier transform and related techniques, of particular relevance to digital signal processing
* Enhanced coverage of line, surface and volume integrals
* Supplements package includes companion web site and solutions manual
Anthony Croft is manager of the Mathematics Learning Support Centre at Loughborough University.
Robert Davison and Martin Hargreaves are lecturers in the Department of Engineering and Technology at De Montfort University.
The authors are experienced teachers of mathematics to engineering students. They have written several highly acclaimed textbooks in this area.
Available with this text will be a CD-based testing and assessment package, with interactive multi-choice, multi-answer and hot-spot questions that allow students to test their understanding of the key topics. Ideal for reinforcing learning during the course or pre-examination revision, all questions will provide detailed student feedback on-screen, and also direct students to the relevant section or page in the text for further study.
A networkable version of the CD for use in diagnostic assessment is also available for purchase by university departments.

Format: Paperback
This is a great complement to the K Stroud book.

With Stroud, you're best off getting hold of some past papers; working out what you need to know; and getting stuck into the relevant programme.

With this book, it's more of a traditional maths reference book with lots of exercises (but not enough for my liking), and is much more specifically geared towards electronics: I was gutted that missed the section on Boolean algebra in here, which you won't find in Stroud; and you won't find as nicely introduced in digital books.

What I will say is that it could do with having even more electronics-specific calculations, transforms and that (until it's as fat as or fatter than K Stroud), just to bridge the gap between those awful American electronics tomes and K Stroud.

As it goes, I'd say it is an essential book for all first and second year electronics students; but I'd still get a K Stroud as well - especially if you're a bit crap at maths. It's very accessible and gets the point.

I can't say I've ever used the bundled CD though, I can't even remember what's on it, save to say it's not much better than the atrocious one that comes with K Stroud; but owt's better than nowt.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book for first/second year electrical/electronic engineering students! I only discovered it at the beginning of my second year, when I was having serious difficulty with my engineering maths course (culminating in my tutor saying, at one point, "if you can't do that you shouldn't be in this class").
With self motivation, this book is an invaluable tool. It covers everything you need to know for a electrical engineering maths course, from the basics such as trigonometric functions (degrees and radians, trigonometric identities), through differentiation, integration, onto the laplace transform, fourier series and transform and finally vector calculus (gradient, curl and divergence of vector fields), line and multiple integrals, and stokes theorem.
The format is to give a easy to understand introduction to each topic, with worked examples, then building the worked examples up to more complex ones. There are frequent exercises throughout the book, to make sure you understand each small chunk, as well as review exercises at the end of each section.
I attribute a large part of my success in second year engineering math to this book. Strongly recommended.

Pretty much what is expected from the title, this will do an EEE student for the first year and maybe second depending on the course.

I actually bough this book before going into 4th year as a revision and was very happy with it for this purpose

Format: Paperback
Absolutely great, very useful and applicable Engineering Maths book which contains plenty of chapters starting from most fundamental ideas and build up slowly until it covers all the necessary Maths topics needed for undergraduate students. The book has very elegant colourful design, very easy to understand and follow. It shows plenty of solved problems and gives the reader an opportunity to try the end of chapter questions (answers provided) by himself.

The book is very specific book for Electrical Science students and has plenty of practical applications for Electrical, Electronic, Communication and System Engineering students.

The book is suitable for almost everyone whether you are an A Level Student or 3rd Year Engineering student or not Engineering student at all but have some interest in this field and has some basic understanding of Maths. That's probably because the number of the pages of the book is around 1000 which is enough for the author to include almost everything relevant to the subject from as basic as indices to all the way to Fourier Transform, Z Transform and Vector Calculus (which are mainly needed for the 2nd and 3rd year of the degree when dealing with Signals and Systems, Digital Signal Processing and Electromagnetics).

Another perfect advantage of this book is that it is not so expensive when you think about what you get out of this book.

I must conclude that this book is a great investment, enables you to learn most important bits of Electrical Science in a shortest possible time, very easy to understand and gives you very practical overview about the variety of Engineering fields.
