Korte beschrijving: Unique in its clarity, examples and range, Physical Mathematics explains as simply as possible the mathematics that graduate students and professional physicists need in their courses and research. The author illustrates the mathematics with numerous physical examples drawn from contemporary research. In addition to basic subjects such as linear algebra, Fourier analysis, complex variables, differential equations and Bessel functions, this textbook covers topics such as the singular-value decomposition, Lie algebras, the tensors and forms of general relativity, the central limit theorem and Kolmogorov test of statistics, the Monte Carlo methods of experimental and theoretical physics, the renormalization group of condensed-matter physics and the functional derivatives and Feynman path integrals of quantum field theory. Describes the fundamental mathematics that students and researchers need in their physics courses and research Explains the mathematics simply, making it easy for all students of physics and the other physical sciences to learn from this book Includes topics important in physics but not covered in most math books; uses numerous examples, many drawn from current research
