More About the Author

My interest in mathematics began at school. I am originally of Asian descent, and as a young child often found English difficult to comprehend, but I discovered an affinity with mathematics, a universal language that I could begin to learn from the same start point as my peers.
I did my undergraduate studies on a part-time basis at Birkbeck College, University of London whilst working full time for Lucas Aerospace developing underwater guidance systems. After this I did my post graduate study at Imperial College, London.
My passion has always been to teach, and I have taught mathematics at the University of Hertfordshire since 1992. I am the author of 'Engineering Mathematics through Applications', a book that I am proud to say is used widely as the basis for undergraduate studies in many different countries.
I am also the author of Linear Algebra Step by Step which is published by Oxford University Press in October 2013.
I also host and regularly update a website dedicated to mathematics; http://mathsforall.co.uk/
My family and career leave little room for outside interest, but I am a keen football fan and occasional cyclist.
Born: Hertfordshire UK
Religion: Sikh
Interests: Cycling, walking, watching football, boxercise.
Heroes: Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Bhindranwale, Bobby Sands, Malala.

Product Description

Review

'The unique quality of this book is the wealth of examples applying the mathematical techniques taught here. These examples span mechanics, aerodynamics, electronics, engineering, fluid dynamics and other areas of applied mathematics. These are not just the usual examples involving differential equations and equations of motion, but real and thoughtful applications that will be relevant to the student.' - Jill Russell, Open University 'If you teach a first year mathematics module to a diverse engineering group, this book should be at the top of your list for consideration as a core text. It aims to encourage their [the students] learning through setting the mathematics within the context of engineering examples. With its very readable text it is suitable for both self-study and as support for a taught module. The book covers the requirements of most first year engineering mathematics modules with a fairly gentle reminder of arithmetic and algebra by way of introduction. Examples are drawn from such diverse subjects as electricity, control theory, heat flow, structures, fluid mechanics, signal processing, thermodynamics etc with the largest group being from mechanics. The examples are simple enough to be understood by most engineering students but sufficiently specific to allow students to see that mathematics is relevant to their own engineering discipline. I liked the presentation of the text - the questions posed to the reader, the full labelling in diagrams and the indication to students of the discipline of the examples. Helpful extra information is occasionally provided in subscript format to indicate the method used to move from one line to the next.' - Dr Ian Taylor, Faculty of Engineering at The University of Ulster, Engineering Subject Centre 'The book starts with the basics of mathematics making it suitable for those with little background in mathematics. This also makes it appealing to a wide variety of readers with different mathematical backgrounds. The book is a good size covering all the essential topics to adequate depth. It covers topics similar to other books targeted at the same audience; however it differs in that it does not assume readers to have a mathematical background. The book's approach of using examples is effective. Its use of examples is motivating. The engineering example generates interest by illustrating the importance and relevance of mathematics in engineering. A definite plus is the provision of online interactive questions, which enable users to test their understanding. This extra support makes it an ideal text for self-study and distance learning.' - Dr Lawrence Chirwa, School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering at The University of Ulster, Engineering Subject Centre 'This is a book that is designed to cover the basics thoroughly and then move on. As a reminder of useful techniques, the book is definitely valuable. What is most refreshing is that it explains everything that you need to know in order to cover the basics of a given subject. The fact that there is almost no assumed knowledge is reassuring, and takes some of the mental strain away from getting your head around eigenvectors again... Essentially, if you want to remind yourself how to do those things that you once thought were straightforward, this is the book for you. A very useful book to have on your shelf.' --Edward Hoare, The Institution of Structural Engineers

The book is excellent, and I'm finding it tremendously helpful. I've been using it as a companion to the legendary title, Engineering Mathematics, by K. Stroud. Both books are first rate. student I'm finding that the examples and problems provided by Mr. Singh give me additional insight and understanding of the topics, relating them directly to my mechanical engineering course work. This makes it easier to actually use the maths I'm learning in a useful way. --student

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D. J. Partridge on 3 Feb. 2005
Format: Paperback
This book is a very worthwhile investment for undergraduate engineering students and experienced engineers alike.
The layout is modern, crisp and user friendly; this combined with the refreshing approach taken by the author makes for an excellent resource for learning and quick reference.
Each topic is covered adequately from transposition of formulae to differentiation; the sections start with a description of the topic, then the properties & execution, examples and a summary. The author has also included some useful tips throughout the sections.
As a Consulting Engineer in the field of Building Services Engineering and a Post Grad Student I have found the reference within the worked examples to various engineering disciplines to be particularly useful, which makes reference to thermodynamics, mechanics, fluid mechanics, electrical etc. So the reader can process many different forms of the maths theory as well finding an example more compatible with their own discipline.
Finally, a number of exercises are provided with solutions in the rear to enable the reader to apply what has been taught.
This book is well worth the outlay !

Format: Paperback
I am very grateful for the book "Engineering Mathematics Through Applications" and suggest that Mr.Singh is probably the best teacher in the world for the subject of mathematics. I mean that quite sincerely. I have found none superior.

I have recently re-discovered his book in my collection to help with a bit of revision for my daughter, prior to her commencing A-Level studies. I confess that I had not properly read the early chapters. A huge error on my part, as both my daughter and I were delighted to find his eloquent execution of the subject - in particular the basics. I have many books on the subject, but none impart comprehension in the way he does, with such brilliantly clear and logical instruction. And definitely not in the category of current GCSE and A-Level study publications. I certainly remember my studies many years ago and wish I had had a teacher like Mr.Singh at the helm.

Knowing a subject and knowing how to teach it are two entirely different skills which are for the most part these days, sadly lost in the modern education system. He has clearly mastered both arts.

I would whole-heartedly recommend his publications and teachings to anyone looking to better understand the "why's" and "how's", in addition to the usual "mechanics" of maths, from the most simple through to the complex. I have long been of the opinion that a student's interest and success in a subject is in direct proportion to the enthusiasm, ability and teaching skill of the teacher, and that students become more involved when they have clear comprehension of subject. He has achieved all the above superbly.

A big thank you for a great book.
Gary Cameron

Format: Paperback
This is the first book I have seen which places mathematics in an engineering context. Singh deserves praise for writing such a thorough book on what most engineering students find diffcult.
The book will be most useful to engineering students as well as other disciplines having a mathematics content. I am not surprised it has taken Singh 6 years to write this book, it clearly shows the effort.
It has a good layout and the topics are well sign posted. Each section begins with the objectives and ends with a summary and a set of exercises. The exercises are all in an engineering discipline. Also full solutions are on the book's web site which I found very useful. There are a series of on line tests on the web site but some of the maths symbols are missing.
An engineering student will find this book a great asset.

I'm not one to review books normally, but I had to stress how much this book has helped me get to grips with some very complex math... 4 weeks ago I would have just stared in terror at the stuff I am doing now. Each section starts at a simple pace, with plenty of examples to work through, then follows with questions of increasing difficulty.

It started, with the 'Introduction' chapter, with the very basics, but as I hadn't had any reason to do math for about 20 yrs it was very welcome! It has quickly increased in complexity, but I haven't had any trouble getting through the examples / questions and knowledge retention has been high, each section building on the last.

It's also interesting to see questions / examples relating to real world engineering / physics... I can finally see math as a language for solving problems rather than a series of manipulations with no real relevance to anything, so it has helped a lot in this regard too :)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The most amazing and the best Maths book in the World. I am a teacher myself and recommend it to everyone - although I have its first edition and bought it as a good second hand book, it's better than any Maths book I have ever seen. I assume that new editions must be even better.

This is the best book on mathematics i have ever read so far, simplified and applied.
Books like this one would create interest among students and motivate them for self learning.
I congratulate author for this mammoth effort.
