The text has been divided in two volumes: Volume I (Ch. 1-13) & Volume II (Ch. 14-22). In addition to the review material and some basic topics as discussed in the opening chapter, the main text in Volume I covers topics on infinite series, differential and integral calculus, matrices, vector calculus, ordinary differential equations, special functions and Laplace transforms. Volume II covers topics on complex analysis, Fourier analysis, partial differential equations and statistics. The present book has numerous distinguishing features over the already existing books on the same topic. The chapters have been planned to create interest among the readers to study and apply the mathematical tools. The subject has been presented in a very lucid and precise manner with a wide variety of examples and exercises, which would eventually help the reader for hassle free study.

Engineers require a solid knowledge of the relationship between engineering applications and underlying mathematical theory. However, most books do not present sufficient theory, or they do not fully explain its importance and relevance in understanding those applications. Advanced Engineering Mathematics with Modeling Applications employs a balanced approach to address this informational void, providing a solid comprehension of mathematical theory that will enhance understanding of applications – and vice versa. With a focus on modeling, this book illustrates why mathematical methods work, when they apply, and what their limitations are. Designed specifically for use in graduate-level courses, this book: Emphasizes mathematical modeling, dimensional analysis, scaling, and their application to macroscale and nanoscale problems Explores eigenvalue problems for discrete and continuous systems and many applications Develops and applies approximate methods, such as Rayleigh-Ritz and finite element methods Presents applications that use contemporary research in areas such as nanotechnology Apply the Same Theory to Vastly Different Physical Problems Presenting mathematical theory at an understandable level, this text explores topics from real and functional analysis, such as vector spaces, inner products, norms, and linear operators, to formulate mathematical models of engineering problems for both discrete and continuous systems. The author presents theorems and proofs, but without the full detail found in mathematical books, so that development of the theory does not obscure its application to engineering problems. He applies principles and theorems of linear algebra to derive solutions, including proofs of theorems when they are instructive. Tying mathematical theory to applications, this book provides engineering students with a strong foundation in mathematical terminology and methods.

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
A good mathematical grounding is essential for all engineers and scientists. This book updates the First Edition and continues the ''integrated'' approach of the authors primary text, Engineering Mathematics. It introduces each topic by considering a real example and formulating the mathematical model for the problem, and solutions are considered using both analytical and numerical techniques. In this Second Edition, any unnecessary mathematical material has been omitted, making room for revisions and new material. Modified problem sets include more up-to-date examples from Engineering Council examinations and now appear at the end of each chapter to better reinforce understanding of the material covered. The chapter on integral transforms has been extended to meet the needs of electrical engineering applications. There is new material on Fourier transforms, and Z- and Discrete Fourier transforms are introduced. Parts of the text can be run on appropriate computer programs and others make extensive use of calculators. Also included are a generous supply
This second edition continues to emphasise learning by doing and the development of students' ability to use mathematics with understanding to solve engineering problems. Extensive treatment of some advanced engineering topics, particularly as tools for computer-based system modelling, analysis and design. *Follow on text from Modern Engineering Mathematics, 2E - over 20,000 copies sold *Changing student needs catered for by some easier examples and exercises plus new introductory sections on matrix algebra and vector spaces *New chapter on Numerical Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations *Engineering applications covered in specific sections in each chapter *The increasing importance of digital techniques and statistics is recognised throughout
Now in its sixth edition, Higher Engineering Mathematics is an established textbook that has helped many thousands of students to gain exam success. John Bird's approach is ideal for students from a wide range of academic backgrounds, and can be worked through at the student's own pace. Mathematical theories are examined in the simplest of terms, supported by practical examples and applications from a wide variety of engineering disciplines, to ensure that the reader can apply theory to practice. This extensive and thorough topic coverage makes this an ideal book for a range of university degree modules, foundation degrees, and HNC/D units. This new edition of Higher Engineering Mathematics has been further extended with topics specifically written to help first year engineering degree students and those following foundation degrees. New material has been added on logarithms and exponential functions, binary, octal and hexadecimal numbers, vectors and methods of adding alternating waveforms. This book caters specifically for the engineering mathematics units of the Higher National Engineering schemes from Edexcel, including the core unit Analytical methods for Engineers, and two optional units: Further Analytical Methods for Engineers and Engineering Mathematics, common to both the electrical/electronic engineering and mechanical engineering pathways. A mapping grid is included showing precisely which topics are required for the learning outcomes of each unit. Higher Engineering Mathematics contains examples, supported by 900 worked problems and 1760 further problems contained within exercises throughout the text. In addition, 19 revision tests, which are available to use as tests or as homework are included at regular intervals.
