Is it only the students in my classes, or is it a widespread phenomenon that no one is willing to sketch a graph? And keep referring to it. Several more chapters were added after the class was over, so this is now far beyond a one semester text. There is enough here to select from if this is a course text, but if you are reading it on your own then you can move through it as you please, though you will find that the first five chapters are used more in the later parts than are chapters six and seven.
Chapters 8, 9, and 13 form a sort of package. The choice of available mathematics fonts is more limited. Also Howard Gordon, who used it in his course and provided me with many suggestions for improvements. Joseph Tenn of Sonoma State University has given me many very helpful ideas, correcting mistakes, improving notation, and suggesting ways to help the students.
For polar and cylindrical coordinate systems it is common to use theta for the polar angle in one and phi for the polar angle in the other. In line integrals it is common to use ds for an element of length, and many authors will use dS for an element of area. This text is now available in print from Dover Publishers.
They have agreed that the electronic version will remain available online. Cambridge Uni- versity Press For the quantity of well-written material here, it is surprisingly inexpensive in paperback. Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences by Boas. John Wiley Publ About the right level and with a very useful selection of topics. Mathematical Methods for Physicists by Arfken and Weber. Academic Press At a more advanced level, but it is sufficiently thorough that will be a valuable reference work later.
Mathematical Methods in Physics by Mathews and Walker. More sophisticated in its approach to the subject, but it has some beautiful insights. Mathematical Methods by Hassani.
Springer At the same level as this text with many of the same topics, but said differently. There are many good and inexpensive books in this series: Here the geometry is paramount, but the traditional material is present too. Well, I think so anyway. The Schaum text provides a complementary image of the subject.
Jones and Bartlett Press Another very good choice for a text on complex variables. Despite the title, mathematicians should find nothing wanting here. Applied Analysis by Lanczos. Dover Publications This publisher has a large selection of moderately priced, high quality books. More discursive than most books on numerical analysis, and shows great insight into the subject. Linear Differential Operators by Lanczos.
Dover publications As always with this author, useful insights and unusual ways to look at the subject. Numerical Methods that usually Work by Acton. Mathematical Association of America Practical tools with more than the usual discussion of what can and will go wrong. Numerical Recipes by Press et al. Cambridge Press The standard current compendium surveying techniques and theory, with programs in one or another language.

While there may not be full overlap in topic coverage between the two books, Boas is better in terms of price, quality, and especially pedagogy.
This is a very nice text covering a large number of topics in "physical mathematics" if I may steal Sommerfeld's description. The sections on special functions and applications of complex analysis are wonderful.
A small warning: Most mathematical physics textbooks are huge tomes Arfken , multiple volume sets Courant and Hilbert , or both Morse and Feshbach. This book covers the essentials in a reader-friendly way without pages and pages of exposition.
The discussion of integral equations with separable kernels is a perfect example, rather than going on and on with the theory, Mathews and Walker just give an example that illustrates the technique; this approach makes it easier to follow than the rest. The book was originally based on lectures by Feynman, and his mark is apparent on it.
If you just want to see how to solve problems and aren't interested in long-winded discussions of the range of applicability of a technique, this is your book. I have owned this book since I took my first undergraduate mathematical physics course in Since that time, however, I have not really found Mathews and Walker to be terribly useful.
My problem is that it is difficult for me to learn to use mathematical methods if they are presented without proof. For example, the Theory of Residues is used in many parts of this book--but it is presented without first proving Cauchy's Theorem. Part of my difficulty is that if I do not go through the proof, I feel that I am not aware of the limits of the method in question.
Also, the proof allows me to develop an intuitive feel for the method. That said, I can see that this book might be good as a reference to sort of remind you how to use a method that you had learned earlier in a more complete treatment. One recent useful piece of information that I have found in this book p.
