Mathematical Tools for Physics
by James Nearing
Publisher: Dover Publications 2010
Number of pages: 569
I intend this for the undergraduate level, providing a one-semester bridge between some of the introductory math courses and the physics courses in which we expect to use the mathematics. This is the course typically called Mathematical Methods in Physics. The text itself has been expanded so that it now contains far more than a one semester course.

This course develops mathematical techniques which are useful in solving 'real-world' problems involving differential equations. The course embraces the ethos of mathematical modelling, and aims to show in a practical way how equations 'work'.

The course in this book is much more advanced than the usual course in commercial arithmetic. The attempt has been made to construct a practical course which will contain all the essential mathematical knowledge required in a business career.
