About this Textbook

Based on course material used by the author at Yale University, this practical text addresses the widening gap found between the mathematics required for upper-level courses in the physical sciences and the knowledge of incoming students. This superb book offers students an excellent opportunity to strengthen their mathematical skills by solving various problems in differential calculus. By covering material in its simplest form, students can look forward to a smooth entry into any course in the physical sciences.

Reviews

`Shankar obviously enjoys his mathematics, and his attitude toward mathematics is simultaneously refreshing and contagious....Dirac notation is intriguingly introduced in the discussion of vector spaces. Finally, the book is richly endowed with well-chosen problems.'
American Journal of Physics
`Consistent with the needs of science students...a sound mathematical reference for anyone studying or practicing in the physical sciences.'
