Mathematical Physics: Advanced Topics
Mathematical Physics: Advanced Topics
by S.D. Joglekar
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very much encouraging for a beginner, 26 Nov. 2013
Although there are a few things (e.e summary of main arguments,a good collection of problems) that would be useful to the general understanding of the underlying mathematics but lack of pedagogical insights leave the book out of range for an ordinary undergraduate or even graduate student. It demands a good understanding of real analysis to understand certain concepts related to ODE etc, which in itself is alright if one happens to have a somewhat pure mathematical background otherwise there are far better books in the market to start and gain working knowledge of mathematics of physics.

Arfken and Weber is one such book that stays closer to physics than the above which most of times gives the feel of a badly written mathematical textbook.
Mary Boas is the place to start and for the PostGraduate mathematical physics Sadri Hassani gives a much wider perspective.

Overall, IMO skip this book if you are also interested in physics rather than doing mathematics alone from a book with cluttered printing and awkward notations.


Remington HC365 Stylist Hair Clipper Set
Remington HC365 Stylist Hair Clipper Set

4.0 out of 5 stars A great product!!!, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Using it for past 20 days and working great :)

Accessories are good but at times the clippers and front attachments give a cheap plastic feel. overall, the ceramic blades do not need oiling and a trimmer bundled is also alright (not impressive). Mind you that the trimmer does not come with a cell. you need to buy AA battery to use it.

The delivery was fast and good.


Calculus the Easy Way (Barron's E-Z)
Calculus the Easy Way (Barron's E-Z)
by Douglas A. Downing
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars It is not a rigorous calculus textbook (keep this in mind!), 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is intended to give you a grasp of basic working knowledge of calculus in a story telling mode. If you enjoy stories, then you will learn mathematics (calculus) on the way towards the end. Its a relaxed and friendly approach to give the reader the applied underpinnings of calculus. However, remember that its not a substitute for your textbook on calculus. This book should be useful for those who suffer from math anxiety. Otherwise, you should go for Stewart's or Thomas' calculus Textbooks which are the foundation of university curriculum of bachelor in Physics or Mathematics. Overall, the product is good but not a textbook substitute.


Schaum's Outline of Complex Variables, 2ed (Schaum's Outline Series)
Schaum's Outline of Complex Variables, 2ed (Schaum's Outline Series)
by Murray R Spiegel
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.72

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book!, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...lots of solved examples to make you feel confidant to handle the complex numbers, functions and its calculus.
the matter is explained with suitable examples and relevant exercises to imbibe what you have learned. This is a quick way to learn and to be used along the standard more intractable texts and a support.


The Lie Algebras su(N): An Introduction
The Lie Algebras su(N): An Introduction
by Walter Pfeifer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £40.99

5.0 out of 5 stars PATHWAY TO HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS AND CONDENSED MATTER, 24 Jun. 2013
I just started with the first chapter and am pleasantly surprised with the lucidity and the presentation style of this book :)

This is a must have for any serious student (advanced undergrad or a graduate) of physics who want to use it as self study guide and should be in the offing for ready reference or recap of ideas already covered in the classroom.

you won't suffer reading and working through the book and then move on confidently to "Lie Groups for the pedestrians" by H J Lipkin for an expanded reading and classic references mentioned therein.

*HIGHLY RECOMMENDED* - A G Yada

4.0 out of 5 stars its total entertainment, 14 Aug. 2010
having bought the new Xbox 360 Slim, i can assuredly say that its the best gaming console in the market with competitive price and loads of features. those of you who have 360 elite need not buy this one as there is not much difference in the hardware apart from the cosmetics. the console runs silently and the feature to install 4 USB channel and 250 gig HD is very well thought of....the new xbox beats PS3 hands down...i have both thats why ;)
