This well-known text is written to provide students in engineering and the applied sciences with a sound presentation of post-calculus mathematics. It contains ample material for a two-year sequence in applied mathematics or for a number of short courses such as ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations and boundary-value problems, vector analysis, applied linear algebra, and complex variables. The courses are offered in either the mathematics department or in the engineering department, and sometimes in both. Advanced Engineering Mathematics is respected for its clarity, accuracy, and utility. It features a large number of carefully and completely worked examples, many involving engineering applications; numerous two-color illustrations that enhance the visual perception and quick identification of distinct entities in each figure; and over 5,000 exercises which range from routine practice problems to more difficult applications. Its broad coverage and detailed illustrative examples make this a valuable reference book for undergraduate students and graduate students alike.
