This text is designed for an intermediatelevel, twosemester undergraduate course
in mathematical physics. It provides an accessible account of most of the current,
important mathematical tools required in physics these days. It is assumed that
the reader has an adequate preparation in general physics and calculus.
The book bridges the gap between an introductory physics course and more
advanced courses in classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum
mechanics, and thermal and statistical physics. The text contains a large number
of worked examples to illustrate the mathematical techniques developed and to
show their relevance to physics.
The book is designed primarily for undergraduate physics majors, but could
also be used by students in other subjects, such as engineering, astronomy and
mathematics.
