This book gathers together in one place both standard and advanced topics on mathematical methods in physics. As such, it will be of use to both researchers and students in theoretical physics, as well as university-level lecturers who may wish to use it as a textbook. The second edition expands on the set of problems of the first edition, and includes new material on special relativity and chaos. It covers a broad spectrum of topics that will be of enormous use to theoretical physicists. (Richard J. Szabo, Heriot-Watt University
