Book Preface

Scientists use the language of mathematics to both describe and communicate physical principles. A significant portion of the  content of university science degrees, particularly in physics, is  therefore devoted to the study of mathematics. In most cases,  mathematics in such courses is taught by mathematicians with the  result that science students are taught as if they were mathematics  majors. It is not surprising perhaps, therefore, to find that the pass  rate for students in science courses in mathematics subjects is usually much lower than that for their other subjects.

This book has been written by a physicist. The book is intended to  serve two purposes: (i) to provide a useful learning aid for science  students by providing an alternative point of view to the students by providing an alternative point of view to the recommended text for any particular course or subject in  mathematics, and (ii) to serve as a handy reference for the  professional physicist who just wants to refresh his knowledge, or  find an equation or method of solution without having to wade  through a formal mathematics text.

My own experience as a student learning mathematics was rather  poor, mainly due to the enormous number of side issues, caveats,  phrases such as “clearly” and “it can be shown,” etc., that seemed  to get in the way of any enjoyment of the subject. In this book, I  have written what I believe is the essential core of mathematical have written what I believe is the essential core of mathematical principles needed for a useful knowledge of the subject. I hope  that you will find the book useful and that it imparts a sense of  beauty and wonder at this extraordinary field of human  endeavour.

Finally, I thank John Navas for his sponsorship of the first edition  and Francesca McGowan at Taylor & Francis for her continued support for this second edition.
