Advanced Mathematics for Engineering Students: The Essential Toolbox provides a concise treatment for applied mathematics. Derived from two semester advanced mathematics courses at the author's university, the book delivers the mathematical foundation needed in an engineering program of study. Other treatments typically provide a thorough but somewhat complicated presentation where students do not appreciate the application. This book focuses on the development of tools to solve most types of mathematical problems that arise in engineering - a "toolbox” for the engineer. It provides an important foundation but goes one step further and demonstrates the practical use of new technology for applied analysis with commercial software packages (e.g., algebraic, numerical and statistical). Delivers a focused and concise treatment on the underlying theory and direct application of mathematical methods so that the reader has a collection of important mathematical tools that are easily understood and ready for application as a practicing engineer The book material has been derived from class-tested courses presented over many years in applied mathematics for engineering students (all problem sets and exam questions given for the course(s) are included along with a solution manual) Provides fundamental theory for applied mathematics while also introducing the application of commercial software packages as modern tools for engineering application, including: EXCEL (statistical analysis); MAPLE (symbolic and numeric computing environment); and COMSOL (finite element solver for ordinary and partial differential equations)
The book comprises ten chapters, Each chapter contains serveral soved problems clarifying the introduced concepts. Some of the examples are taken from the recent literature and serve to illustrate the applications in various fields of engineering and science. At the end of each chapter, there are assignment problems with two levels of difficulty. A list of references is provided at the end of the book. This book is the product of a close collaboration between two mathematicians and an engineer. The engineer has been helpful in pinpointing the problems which engineering students encounter in books written by mathematicians. Contents: Review of Calculus and Ordinary Differential Equations; Series Solutions and Special Functions; Complex Variables; Vector and Tensor Analysis; Partial Differential Equations I; Partial Differential Equations II; Numerical Methods; Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations; Calculus of Variations; Special Topics. Readership: Upper level undergraduates, graduate students and researchers in mathematical modeling, mathematical physics and numerical &computational mathematics.

Based on and enriched by the long-term teaching experience of the authors, this volume covers the major themes of mathematics in engineering and technical specialties. The book addresses the elements of linear algebra and analytic geometry, differential calculus of a function of one variable, and elements of higher algebra. On each theme the authors first present short theoretical overviews and then go on to give problems to be solved. The authors provide the solutions to some typical, relatively difficult problems and guidelines for solving them. The authors consider the development of the self-dependent thinking ability of students in the construction of problems and indicate which problems are relatively difficult. The book is geared so that some of the problems presented can be solved in class, and others are meant to be solved independently. An extensive, explanatory solution of at least one typical problem is included, with emphasis on applications, formulas, and rules. This volume is primarily addressed to advanced students of engineering and technical specialties as well as to engineers/technicians and instructors of mathematics. Key features: Presents the theoretical background necessary for solving problems, including definitions, rules, formulas, and theorems on the particular theme Provides an extended solution of at least one problem on every theme and guidelines for solving some difficult problems Selects problems for independent study as well as those for classroom time, taking into account the similarity of both sets of problems Differentiates relatively difficult problems from others for those who want to study mathematics more deeply Provides answers to the problems within the text rather than at the back of the book, enabling more direct verification of problem solutions Presents a selection of problems and solutions that are very interesting not only for the students but also for professor-teacher staff

Advanced Engineering Mathematics provides comprehensive and contemporary coverage of key mathematical ideas, techniques, and their widespread applications, for students majoring in engineering, computer science, mathematics and physics. Using a wide range of examples throughout the book, Jeffrey illustrates how to construct simple mathematical models, how to apply mathematical reasoning to select a particular solution from a range of possible alternatives, and how to determine which solution has physical significance. Jeffrey includes material that is not found in works of a similar nature, such as the use of the matrix exponential when solving systems of ordinary differential equations. The text provides many detailed, worked examples following the introduction of each new idea, and large problem sets provide both routine practice, and, in many cases, greater challenge and insight for students. Most chapters end with a set of computer projects that require the use of any CAS (such as Maple or Mathematica) that reinforce ideas and provide insight into more advanced problems. Comprehensive coverage of frequently used integrals, functions and fundamental mathematical results Contents selected and organized to suit the needs of students, scientists, and engineers Contains tables of Laplace and Fourier transform pairs New section on numerical approximation New section on the z-transform Easy reference system
