Product Description

Review

Review from previous edition This textbook offers an accessible and comprehensive grounding in many of the mathematical techniques required in the early stages of an engineering or science degree and also for the routine methods needed by first and second year mathematics students. (Engineering Designer March/April 2003)

There are also significant changes in content in the opening chapter, where the foundation material has been expanded usefully. The authors do not attempt to dodge theoretical hurdles. They are careful to explain many of the less intuitive properties of functions and to highlight generalisations without becoming over abstract. (Times Higher Education Supplement, November 2002)

Thoroughly recommended. (Zentralblatt MATH, 993:2002)

It is certainly a rare occasion when trying to learn math for University, that you find such a delightful book to guide you through the complexities while maintaining a joy that you find you possess every time you delve into his book for a clarification or a new theme in your mathematics study. I would not hesitate to recommend this book and hope others will enjoy their own journey into such a gratifying success to what for many could be a dry relationship. This book has singly changed my approach to math and for that I am truly happy.

I find this book very clear in its explanations . Takes you through calculus , vectors etc with plenty of examples.
Makes good use of diagrams which is where a lot of maths books fail - no idea why a lot of other books don't use more diagrams when most concepts can be put into geometric form for simple cases which makes it much easier to see whats going on rather then endless pages of equation and algebraic manipulations.
I use this book to understand the maths required for studying physics and so far its been clear.

I'm a masters student, returning to uni after a few years working as an engineer. This book is gem. Any time I come across some math I feel unsure about I look to this book for a clear and concise explanation.

Part 1 covers differentiation &complex numbers, Part 2 matrics &vectors, Part 3 integration & differential eqns, Part 4 Fourier & Laplace, Part 5 multivariable calculus, Part 6 discrete math, Part 7 probability. There are plenty of examples to illustrate the theory & further exercises with answers at the back.

For those who use math as a tool in their field of study (science/engineering), this is a handy book to have around.

No non-sense introduction to advanced math. Abundant in examples which makes you see the theory better. I have only read about 200 pages but I am really content. Book does not dwell on theory more like tells you one math property than gives you example to make you understand.
I have discovered some typos and notation mistakes unfortunately though.

This is a superb reference for mathematical modelling. People who aren't mathematically oriented may still need to use the basic science in research and discovery within their own areas of expertise; and this book provides the modelling guidance to enable that.

This textbook is recommended for my second year mathematics course (along with others).

I have had some use out this book, but not quite the use I intended. I use it to revise and to see a different take on concepts with which I am already familiar, and for this purpose the book suits my needs. However, I struggle to use this book for initial learning of concepts. The authors seem to fall into the trap of thinking that, because the material is 'easy' to them, that it doesn't need much explanation. The textbook seems to me to be greatly inferior to Stroud's Engineering Mathematics for initial learning of concepts, but is useful for revision.

A decent textbook, but I feel perhaps undeserving of the slew of 5 star reviews.

This is a brilliantlt detailed book with so many clear, worked explanations which has gone no small way in helping me reason the often under-illustrated theory in my university textbooks (2nd year undergraduate physics). It is a book that can only help steer you through and forward.
