Step-by-Step BS to PhD Math/Physics
by Alex Alaniz
Publisher: UC Riverside 2013
Number of pages: 323
These are step-by-verifiable-step notes which are designed to help students with a year of calculus based physics who are about to enroll in ordinary differential equations go all the way to doctoral foundations in either mathematics and more so in physics with much reduced mystery. Abstract algebra, topology (local and global) folds into a useful, intuitive toolset for ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations, be they linear or nonlinear.

This book provides an introduction, with applications, to three interconnected mathematical topics: zeta functions in their rich variety; modular forms; vertex operator algebras. Applications of the material to physics are presented.

A set of class notes taken by math graduate students, the goal of the course was to introduce some basic concepts from theoretical physics which play so fundamental role in a recent intermarriage between physics and pure mathematics.

This book provides a graduate-level introduction to the mathematics used in research in physics. It focuses on differential and integral equations, Fourier series, calculus of variations, differential geometry, topology and complex variables.

Einstein's kinetic theory of the Brownian motion, based upon water molecules bombarding a heavy pollen, provided an explanation of diffusion from the Newtonian mechanics. It is a challenge to verify the diffusion from the Schroedinger equation.
