Mathematical Methods for Engineering and Science is an instructional material that introduces undergraduate students of engineering and science to applied mathematics essential to the study of many problems. The contents are comprised of samples and work activities for applications. This textbook is uniquely qualified to apply mathematics to physical applications in a manner that is efficient and understandable.

This book is written to support a mathematics course after differential equations, to permit several topics to be covered in one semester, and to make the material comprehensible to undergraduates. An Instructor Solutions Manual, and also a Student Solutions Manual that provides solutions to select problems, are available. Topics are differential equations, power series, Laplace transforms, matrices and determinants, vector analysis, partial differential equations, complex variables, and numerical methods. Approximately, 160 examples and 1000 homework problems aid students in their study. This book presents mathematical topics using derivations rather than theorems and proofs.

Author Merle Potter was an author and co-author of many books on fluid mechanics, mathematical methods, thermodynamics, differential equations, and review guides for the GRE, GMAT, fundamentals of engineering, and professional engineering exams. Merle has published nearly twenty archived journal papers and was the advisor for fourteen Ph.D. students.

This informational book is best to share with students and instructors in the field of Engineering and Science.
