Mathematical Methods for Physicists
Academic Press, 2013年10月22日 - 1008 頁
Mathematical Methods for Physicists, Third Edition provides an advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate study in physical science, focusing on the mathematics of theoretical physics.
This edition includes sections on the non-Cartesian tensors, dispersion theory, first-order differential equations, numerical application of Chebyshev polynomials, the fast Fourier transform, and transfer functions. Many of the physical examples provided in this book, which are used to illustrate the applications of mathematics, are taken from the fields of electromagnetic theory and quantum mechanics. The Hermitian operators, Hilbert space, and concept of completeness are also deliberated.
This book is beneficial to students studying graduate level physics, particularly theoretical physics.

As far as I remember this book was required reading for the “Special Functions” course. You could argue that this is not a pure Physics book. However, it is certainly not a pure Mathematics book ... 閱讀評論全文
