Mathematical Physics (English) 1st Edition


Mathematical Physics has been written primarily to cater to the needs of the undergraduate physics students. It is also useful to postgraduate students of physics as well as to first-year engineering students of all streams. It is mapped to cover all topics in the University of Delhi semester mode syllabus of Mathematical Physics and provides a little more than the general introduction to the subject. The book focuses on the basic concepts. Numerous solved examples and practice problems are included to allow the reader a thorough comprehension in each of the topics covered.

Key Features

  • Presentation of basic concepts with clarity for quick assimilation
  • Imparts deep and thorough understanding of the subject
  • Advanced topics, viz., classical mechanics and covariant and contravariant tensors, are dealt with in a student-friendly manner.
  • An assemblage of easily comprehensible solved examples in each of the topics covered
  • Unsolved problems with answers at the end of each chapter for the self-assessment of the reader

As I was preparing for my medical examination, I had no idea about complex Maths in Physics. Mathematical Tool was the first chapter in class XI (phy) and my NCERT book was not enough to completely understand the above chapter. This book was of tremendous help! All topics in an elaborated format without any complex concept as used in a PROPER maths book!! JUST TO UNDERSTAND FEW CONCEPTS OF MATHS USED IN PHYSICS!
