This clear, pedagogically rich book develops a strong understanding of the mathematical principles and practices that today's engineers and scientists need to know. Equally effective as either a textbook or reference manual, it approaches mathematical concepts from a practical-use perspective making physical applications more vivid and substantial. Its comprehensive instructional framework supports a conversational, down-to-earth narrative style offering easy accessibility and frequent opportunities for application and reinforcement.


Develops a deep understanding of essential principles as well as hands-on/how-to knowledge of actual practices.
Serves as an excellent reference tool for both students and practitioners with coverage reaching well beyond Ordinary Differential Equations.
Reflects the author's vast engineering background, making mathematical principles and applications more relevant to future engineers. Physical applications integrated throughout the text include...

  • Harmonic oscillator systems.<%-16>
  • Discussion of beats.
  • Application of rank to stoichiometry and dimensional analysis.
Designs pedagogy with the needs of both instructors and students in mind, combining technical rigor with clarity and accessibility.
Features a wealth of diverse exercise and problem sets to both challenge and reinforce students' understanding.
Provides unique Closure features at the end of each section and chapter reviews at the end of each chapter to review and summarize main points.
Includes useful and unique topics often ignored by other texts, including...
  • Dimensional analysis to minimize parameters and guide plots and experiments.
  • Introduction to singular integrals.
  • Application of the mathematical concept of nonlinearity to nerve impulse and visual perception.
  • An “omega method” for the derivation of the various space derivatives of base vectors in non-Cartesian coordinate systems.
NEW—Updates and improves coverage throughout the text to reflect the latest trends in the field and make the learning process more effective and efficient.
NEW—Opens coverage with seven chapters on Ordinary Differential Equations offering flexibility for use in either ODE dedicated courses or combined ODE/Linear Algebra courses.
NEW—Incorporates the Maple Computer Algebra System in the form of optional special-interest sections and exercises.
